Lacking the motivation to start something has always been my biggest problem. I have been overweight most of my adult life trying different ‘diets’ over the years and joining slimming clubs on numerous occasions. They worked but weren’t ideal as they never taught me anything about the nutrition of food or understanding portion control.
If I’m told I can eat as much of a certain food then that’s what I’m going to do, to the point where I was feeling bloated and lethargic. Hitting menopause has been a struggle. I got to a point where I knew I needed to start looking after myself and eating foods that would help my hormonal swings. I came across an ad for WGKBT on FACEBOOK and instantly felt drawn to it. The thought of concentrating on becoming strong instead of just losing weight was something I’d never considered before. The more I read the more I believed that this was for me. As soon as I signed up I felt part of the ‘tribe’ Like minded women all wanting the same thing…..to be ‘bad ass’.
Lisa’s enthusiasm is infectious and her knowledge impeccable. I loved her weekly Q&A sessions which spurred us all on to complete the challenge.I decided not to tell anyone I’d embarked on the program as I’m so used to starting and not completing things I thought I’d fail at this too. Within the first week of training, I was telling anyone who would listen, I was so full of energy and motivation and could feel a massive shift in my mindset. Lisa taps into the link between mental and physical health and this really hit home with me and spurred me on to complete the challenge. The eating and training plans are so easy to follow. Everything is explained in full and the follow-along training videos encourage you to push yourself as hard as you can. I did no exercise at all before starting the 6-week transformation challenge but the training is geared at different levels so I followed the beginner’s program. It was hard but the feeling of achievement when I finished a workout or mastered a kettlebell move was so worth it.
I lost 15.5 pounds in the 6 weeks and a total of 57.5 cms which is amazing and definitely the kick start I needed to become the best version of myself, strong, fit and healthy. Oh and ‘bad ass’!
