12 weeks later..

Working out outside has never been my idea of a good time. That said, being a gym bunny just wasn’t working – I wasn’t going often enough or working hard enough once I got there.  As a busy, career-focused woman with a hearty appetite it’s important that I get a good work out, otherwise I balloon.

This maxim has never been clearer in my mind than now. Having worked with Dean Callis for 12 weeks (prior to Christmas) I have seen how big a difference training can make, and I swear this is only the tip of the iceberg. We trained together in Highbury Fields weekly for an hour at a time. Dean made me promise I wouldn’t mess up the benefits of training by eating crap and although I don’t ever generally binge on biscuits etc. I didn’t really change that much about my diet. And yet during those 12 weeks I managed to lose 14 lbs.

Even after Christmas (I relaxed and had a few treats, though it wasn’t the gluttonous overload of earlier years) I’m delighted to see that my weight loss is still noticeable and I’m stronger than ever before. On top of that, I’m much more enthusiastic about continuing – not only toning up, but gaining strength, confidence and a natural boost that gorging on chocs or splurging at the shops just can’t equal.

I’m delighted that I’ve not only seen such a difference in myself but I’ve had fun too.
