Let me start by saying this is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, but one of the best.
This week has been a real turning point in terms of people noticing how I’ve lost weight, especially people I haven’t seen for a while.
I can’t deny the compliments do help. Once I tell people (which I am doing more now) I see them looking up the website on their phones!
I’m having the meals sent to me by EatUP, but of course, there is going to be an occasional time within the transformation process where you do have to eat off plan, and Sean my trainer told me to tell him in exact detail what those meals are. At UP they leave nothing to chance.
You don’t know whether the meal you’re eating is cooked in butter, or what sauce/dressing/marinade they’re going to put on it – so it is best to check with them beforehand.
This really is all about planning ahead and being organised. There is a lot to think about, but it also changes the way you think about both exercise and food.
The attention to detail even stretches to every single workout you do with your trainer at the gym.
If your form isn’t right, they will personally correct it to ensure you’re going to get the right results, and of course to avoid injury.
The sessions aren’t easy. They’re not meant to be. And they’re only getting harder and heavier.
But you walk out feeling like you have achieved something you never thought you could.
But I strangely really look forward to them, and feel amazing afterwards.
The level of professionalism to getting goals is present throughout every single trainer in the gym, and it’s extremely impressive to watch.
I also trained at the new High Street Kensington branch, which is amazing – even though I felt bad using the machines as they are all brand new. Almost felt like I wasn’t allowed to sweat. But I did. A lot.
