Yesterday I committed to Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation. I have been looking at her website for a couple of weeks now, googling for blog reviews and generally um-ing and ah-ing about whether or not I would join. I wasn't sure if it was right for me. I want (need) to develop healthy habits but don't have a lot of weight to lose. Regardless, I think it will give me structure, and take some of the hard work out of planning and researching the best healthy diet and exercise options, so that I can spend my time doing.
The program officially kicks off on Monday 19th November. In the meantime there are tasks and challenges to get into the right mindset. I am nervous about what may be around the corner. I don't know what my goal weight should be. I don't know if I won't collapse from exhaustion from so much exercise. I don't know if I will feel satisfied eating a low-ish calorie diet and I wonder if my stomach won't be growling from hunger in the evening.
I want to put myself 100% into this program and not second guess the advice. The hardest thing I think for me will be balancing my commitment to the program while also listening to my body. I am determined enough that I will make time for the exercise and food preparation. I can afford to buy basic exercise equipment to complete a good workout. My partner is encouraging and supportive. I just need to arrive at a happy medium where I am eating well and feeling strong, and my weight is stable. While I am not quite sure what the numbers (calorie intake and body weight) will be I hope I know when I get there.
