Amy and her husband Troy
Here is an update:
Amy has now lost 5.6kg and a total of 22.5cm over her body!
The Central Nest: What is the best part of the program so far?
Amy: The best part of the Michelle Bridges 12WBT program so far has been the meals (with a distinct advantage of not having to think about what to have for dinner!)
I think learning the healthy way to get nice meals will be something that sticks with me forever. Without having the knowledge to be able to put different flavours together to create the same taste but with less calories, it is quite hard to be able to lose the weight. I always thought I was making healthy meals but using sauces and things with all added sugar so it wasn’t as healthy as I thought. With the Michelle Bridges recipes, you are only using fresh healthy ingredients but when they are put together some can seem like you are having a ‘naughty meal’ but it is still good for you.
The Central Nest: What have been your favourite recipes?
Amy: Beef Fajita with Capsicum & Red Onion, Beef with Creamy Mustard & Mushroom Sauce, Caramelised Pork with Sweet Potato Mash & Apples and Lamb Cutlets with Spiced Rice. I have worked out that I really dislike Kangaroo and I’m not a huge fan of Chick peas!!
The Central Nest: What are you finding to be a more difficult aspect of the program?
Amy: Definitely the motivation for exercise is my biggest challenge.
I am sticking to the program nutritionally but over the last week I’ve been a bit lapse with my exercise. I know I just need to get up and do it and I always feel much better once I have done, but it is an internal fight with myself to get it done. Unfortunately in the last week, it has been the stay in bed and make excuses voice that has won, but I went for a walk this morning, so I’m getting back into it!
The Central Nest: What’s next? Have you decided what your major milestone event will be?
Amy: I am going to sign up to do the Carcoar to Creek Dash which is a 6km run on 3rd November. Whilst I know I may not be able to run all of the distance, I will try my best and hopefully will make most of it. This is certainly not something I would have considered doing prior to the program.
The Central Nest: Thank you for sharing your story with us Amy and we wish you all the best over the next few weeks. We are very proud of your weight-loss so far and we can’t wait to hear more about your journey!
