Final Blog GRADUATION POST
- Jul 5th, 2013 at 7:36AM
PCPs been a real journey for me. I'm so grateful to everyone who's been part of it - Indus and the rest of the Kyanite team and of course trainer Thomas have been a vital source of encouragement- thanks guys and congratulations. For any friends and family reading this sorry for never shutting up about PCP and thank you for all your help and encouragement.
Results for me came quickly and continued to encourage me to the end. Amazing for someone who's never been much in control of her diet. Weeks 1-4 were a total high and a pretty steep learning curve. Week 3 was flat tummy week- hello bikinis! Week 5 marked the end of a long reliance on medication for ADHD and the start of some pretty intense soul searching. It's allowed me to make some long overdue decisions about what I want in life and how to achieve it. The last third of PCP has been challenging in a different way- How to stick with the intensifying training through injury and fatigue but also how to have fun, socialise and be normal without reverting back to old ways and sticking to training. Involving friends with wellness and staying positive about 'sacrifices' you have to make seems to be the way forward and, after my mandatory 3 days off, I'm very relieved to be back in (albeit a slightly more relaxed) PCP mode. I don't have many interesting figures to note (I've lost about 3kg and fat % has definitely gone down) but am told I'm looking hot! I feel amazing!
It was my Dad who inspired me to do PCP and I thanked him the other day for giving me my life back. That's genuinely how I feel- PCP has given me back a sense of control over my mind and body- for anyone who's struggled with the issues I've talked about in earlier blogs, it's a pretty huge thing. A lesson for the future too (if I ever have kids)...in setting a good example!
Well done everyone and thanks again.
