It can be so hard to get back on track after over indulging at Christmas so I’m teaming up with D12 Performance for a 6 week transformation. I know it won’t be easy but I’m willing to try my hardest to achieve my goals. After starting in an office job in February last year, free snacks and sitting at a desk caught up with me fairly quickly. I’m officially the heaviest I’ve ever been. This won’t just be a 6 week transformation but a complete overhaul, not only to get back to where I was, but be the best version of myself I’ve ever been.
It’s all well and good wanting to be skinny but I’d rather be strong. At my smallest I was a size 8. All through my teens up into my early twenties I maintained that size. I don’t know how achievable that is, now I’m in my late twenties, but I’m willing to give it a try. I’m not too bothered about what I weigh when it comes to the end of the transformation, as long as I’ve lost inches and have some definition. We all know muscle can be heavy. I know I have abs under there, they just need some encouragement to come out.
I’m under no illusion that this will be easy. It’s going to take a lot of commitment and will-power. This is the first time I’m consciously making a solid lifestyle change. I go through phases, I’ll eat healthy, go to the gym and then pack it all in when I want a pizza. The thing with me is, it’s never just a pizza. I carry on eating everything and anything i want and undo every bit of hard work I’ve put in. This time is different, i want these choices to carry over and be my new way of life. I need to stick to it!
D12 Performance is the perfect way to get me back on track. I know Sinead and Colm will push me and not take any of my bs. Their classes are a great way to get a full body workout in, really pushing yourself to the limit. They run 3 classes a week, with the tag line #dontsweatsolo. You barely notice the time fly by as you grumble about how you can’t do it with friends, until it’s over and you realize YOU DID! They also specialize in PT sessions, these can be brutal, but the results speak for them-self.
I’m a big fan of a bit of a run on the treadmill but if I’m being honest with myself, I know I’m not giving 100%. I’m not a runner, I don’t spend enough time a week on the treadmill to improve so I struggle to keep a consistent speed. With D12 Performance, you are getting your heart rate up and you are keeping it up.
I can’t deny it, I’m very picky when it comes to food. I find it hard to eat healthy because I dislike so much. With Sinead and Colms guidance I will aim to work with a calorie controlled diet.
With my measurements and stats all rotted up, there’s nothing left to do now but get stuck in and get those numbers waaaay down. Come along on my 6 week journey, who knows, I might just stop smash it!
