I don't even know where to start. I've loved Kenzai.

Not only has my body changed but my mind has too.

As I said in my blog a few days ago, I feel happy all the time. I can run for miles and I love it. I can skip for 20 minutes and feel great. I can squat a bar bell with my body weight on again, which is really satisfying!! Being cardio fit feels amazing and I've learnt that if I'm having a shit day, the only thing that's going to make it better is to just shut up and go do my workout.

I haven't been on point with my diet over the past 3 months and as a result I know I haven't lost as much fat as I could have. But what I am taking away is FAR more valuable. I have learnt that if I eat crap for a day or a weekend or even if I have a real woopsy and eat it for a whole week, it doesn't matter. So long as I get back on track. This hasn't just been a 3 month programme for me because I don't feel like anything is going to change with my eating or training tomorrow. The food is my new normal and the exercise is my therapy (don't worry Kenzai, I will chill for 3 days).

I've spent my whole life trying to stick to diets and failing because of the guilt when I have one slip up. I no longer binge because I have learnt to control my feelings with exercise. I've learnt to enjoy eating moderate portions of indulgent food without having to go over the top. I'm no longer addicted to cheese or pizza....and for anyone who read my introductory blog, you will know what a major achievement this is. I no longer drink regularly and I have such a clear head.

Thank you to my amazing Rigel teammates- Kate, Sarah, Brad, Darren, Alexandra, Ann, Sneha, Joe, Arwel and Talah. Your support has been invaluable despite going through trials of your own!

And a massive thank you to our amazing trainers- Brett and Ed who have kept me afloat even in the shitty depths of the valley. Couldn't have done it without you both and your incredible encouragement.

Lots and lots of luck everyone and enjoy a well-deserved rest!! :) xx

      Brilliant work, Tam, congratulations! You smashed your program in the way that truly matters: you have fundamentally shifted to a healthier relationship with food and exercise. That detached awareness of what it means to eat well and move well puts you at the helm of your health. Thanks for sharing your ups and downs so openly on your blog. You were--and are!--a source of inspiration for the team and the Kenzai community. Through that vulnerability you've found real strength. May you continue to build on that strength for years to come. Cheers!

        Great to read about all these changes Tam, this is exactly where we want you to be on Day 90, feeling empowered and emboldened in the choices you've made and the ones going forwards. A few months and years of living on this track and you'll be amazed at how far your body will come. Glad we could play a small part in getting you to a better place. Congratulations and COMPLETE!

          Hey Tam , congratulations on the finish line, I thought we had lost you once or twice but you just came back stronger and stronger every time. It has been a pleasure to have completed this program with you and I hope you continue you healthy lifestyle for a long time. Might even see you in another program.

            My fellow Hard Core sister! We made it! I know that you struggled at times, but you bounced back and now you are here. Let's celebrate for a few days and then let's figure out how to avoid that slide when we slip off program. The other lesson that I want you to remember is how good it felt to be there for your teammates (you were a great commenter) and how much love you got in return. That's part of the process. A huge congratulations.

                Pure victory. You are a legend Tam. You have been a constant in our entire programme. When we lost you for a week, you came back . Stronger than ever. For me kenzai was even more about the changing of my mind and i really feel thats been the same for you too. Life is going to tough times to all of us and you know you have the power to overcome anything. You look phenomenal in your photo. So proud to have been your fellow Rigel teammate.
