what is your biggest struggle ?

Christmas is coming and I remember when I first started my healthy active lifestyle journey…it was around this time…three months before Christmas and I was invited to a party.

The first thing that came to mind was …Say No you cannot attend !!

But I decided to go…and guess what, I ate the food ! Well, I decided to make better choices. It always takes me back to this when I’m telling my story to people I help everyday.

Yes, there are always going to be challenges or, shall we say, road blocks along the way, but how are we going to deal with them?

What are your road blocks?

My journey on the six pack challenge so far!

If anyone asked me how it’s going so far, I would simply say there has never been a dull moment…. Honestly, I am on my second wave of the Six Pack Revolution and it’s been exhilarating to say the least.  Well, my first wave, which started back in September 2017 was over before I knew it.  There was more to pack in my day to ensure I completed it successfully.  By December, I had done it and got the tee shirt as they say.  The outcome? SIMPLY BRILLIANT AND SO MUCH FUN!!!  This was my final result on the top far left.  

Yes I got a 2-pack at the end of the first wave, BUT I would also say I got a much flatter belly and a feeling that my  health and fitness levels had gone up a notch.  For me, it was more about a bit more of accountability to help me feel a bit of a difference.  Yes, we all go through times when we need a little helping hand.

I started my second wave on the Six Pack Challenge  in January 2018.  So far so good…I achieved a pb at the park run 33.43 in mid February! It was 45.05 when I first started park run last February!! Thanks to all in my Eat Clean and Fitcamp community for their support as well!!

I feel incredible and ready to support more people to feel the same. Never say never! I believe age is not an issue.  Irrespective of your age, you too can improve your fitness and lifestyle, feel the energy and get that body you so deserve if you want it.

The next Wave is in May. Why not join me. Take a look here http://thesixpackrevolution.com/?ref=200

This simple salad will give you essential nutrients including Omega 3 fatty acids and your much needed phytonutrients.

Size of your palm of round lettuce to fill a side plate

You do not need a dressing, as there is flavour in the Salmon, so the dressing is optional.
