“2020 was the year of all years to reflect and above all start looking after myself again! I had the opportunity this year to start up again something I truly love, EBC! It felt amazing, not pretending it wasn’t hard, tough, gruelling, but amazing and it gave me the impetus that I wanted to achieve more and get back on track.”
“Enter the EBC 60 day challenge. WHAT a game changer. This was everything I needed: a straight forward, realistic, healthy approach with constant support. It was massive a wake up call to what I should and should not be putting in my body. The accountability for what I did each day meant I couldn’t hide any longer, and once the benefits started to kick in I really didn’t want to anymore!”
I feel healthy, strong and happy. This has without doubt brought me back to life. As I was told often by the great support I had – “at the end of this challenge your body will not lie” your body will also reward you in ways I didn’t think mine would again!
Thank you so much everyone at EBC for this challenge, there’s been so much I have learnt which at the age of 59 I wasn’t sure I would The hardest part for me was giving up the bad habits, weekends were my downfall I would always feel like I needed to treat myself with bad food and wine and not just one day but from Friday night to Sunday night!
This I have changed and I can see the results both mentally and physically. I won’t deprive myself of a treat as that’s not sustainable but I limit it now. I have learnt what food I need to fuel my body never even thought about protein but do now and the fluid intake required, I definitely didn’t drink enough water before this. What I will continue doing is planning my food especially around days involving a lot of exercise, keep to a minimum 2L a day and limit my treats. The improvements have been 16lb lost, a total of 11.5 inches, my burpees went from 28 – 45 and my run from 7.35 minutes to 6.01. Before joining EBC I struggled to run for 20 seconds so that is a huge thing for me.
Before I joined EBC I never thought that sort of exercise was for me, but since joining in September I have loved it, but due to increasing my exercise I also increased my eating and not of the right things. This challenge came at just the right time so now this is a life change for me, thank you to everyone involved in the challenge and EBC itself.
