I had read about Get Active Online through Oxygen Magazine, and I really liked the sound of the programs and trainers! I originally did a 12
week program a while back, but found it really hard to maintain
motivation towards the end of the program, my head just wasn’t in the
right place and I had a lot of distractions going on in life at that
time. After I slipped up, I found it really hard to get back on track,
and instead of having one bad moment, I’d end up having a bad day… or
After years of binge eating, followed by the overwhelming guilt that
accompanies it, I felt stuck in a cycle of bad eating habits. Being in
the Army Reserves I was pretty good at maintaining some form of
exericse, so in the end I tended to sit relatively stable at the same
weight- not being able to lose any, but not really putting on too much
Irrespective, I was really unhappy! All I thought about was my weight! It consumed me!
For YEARS I not only didn’t feel comfortable in a bikini…I didn’t
feel comfortable wearing pants! I felt so uncomfortable with myself
that it affected my relationship with my boyfriend. With him going away
for 8 months with the Army, I decided it was a good time to start
looking after myself a bit better and trying to get on top of some of
these issues. I got myself mentally prepared for the 12 week challenge
and was determined this time to not let anything get in the way.
The second time round with the Results Program felt completely
different. I have heard this word ‘consistency’ thrown around, but I
didn’t realise how relevant it was! There was more than one or two
times (that’s for sure!) that I slipped up and ate chocolate or some
other thing I wasn’t supposed to, but I never let it dictate the next
step! I’d give myself a clean slate and get right back on track. I
honestly think the biggest tip anyone can give you is CONSISTENCY! No
matter what happens, just get right back on track. In the past I used
to try and counteract my binges with these extreme plans for twice/day
exercise and strict eating, it was an inevitable failure!
Throughout this program, when times were tough I would think only
about the day I was in, and getting through that single day, when I had
done that successfully, the next day would be the same! Breaking it
down into manageable chunks made it a lot less daunting and SO much
easier to get through!
I feel so much more control now in terms of my eating and exercise,
and that’s something I used to lack- I felt completely out of control of
my own behaviours, and it’s an awful feeling! Now, I get up and it is
an automatic behaviour to do some form of exercise first thing in the
morning. If I don’t, I feel sluggish and lethargic. It is an awesome
feeling to take charge and feel strong mentally and physically!
