Transforming Me....

Alright.  The Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation is officially over, but my transformation is certainly continuing!

I'm totally not comfortable with putting myself out there... at all.  I baulked at actually clicking that 'publish' button 3 times in as many days.  But, after all the hard work, I think I owe it to myself to have to confidence to post a photo of me for once.  Kinda.....  eeek!




In 12 weeks I have lost 20.7kg.  I feel so much stronger, healthier, happier.  It's all about forming new habits, maintaining variety and keeping it fun.  The treadmill and I are friends again, and I just LOVE my powerbar classes at the gym.  Most of all, I LOVE that I can do all of this without collapsing, or getting spat out the back of the treadmill .... and still have energy to burn!  lol

Here's to a happy, healthy festive season!

Oh, I'll be back tomorrow with a tutorial for you too! 

hugs,
jules

OMG girl. 20kg. Wow. That is simply amazing. Good on you and how addictive is it?
I go to my gym 5 times a week at the moment and this morning I achieved a goal of mine which was to run around the river near my house. After being in Qld where I was running 5kms I knew I could do it....it is only 4kms I knew I could do it.....although I did it with my pooch and it must have been a bit much because he vomited the poor puppy.
So I am very proud of you and you look FANTABULOUS.
