2016- This is where the challenge started. Stop abusing myself with cardio training, develop my confidence with Resistance Training (which I absolutely LOVE now) and accept that I need to change some habits that have influenced my entire life. This consisted of changing my food habits, shaping the relationship I have with food and exercise, then challenging myself to start loving myself for me right now and trust me, this does not happen overnight!
I have had many highs and many lows during my coaching, life gets in the way sometimes. However, change is never easy but the mental and physical results are truly worth it.
Angi has taught me to accept that I am a foodie, I’m cool with that, I love food! I now know that restricting myself of certain foods or labelling them does not serve me well. I now eat everything in moderation, if I want a chocolate bar I have one guilt-free knowing this is OK. Prior to coaching if I believed I had eaten something “BAD” (food label) it would’ve lead to a binge, then I’d counteract this by using exercise as a form of punishment, I’d of done something daft like running 6miles the next day.
