Back in Round 2 of the 12WBT, I undertook a 50 kilometre walk along the federation trail. To recap on that, check out the link and read the Mini Milestone challenge.
Now I had two reasons to do this challenge. The first well, to see if I could do it! But right from the beginning, 8 weeks earlier, I wanted it to mean something. I wanted my challenge to be able to let someone else feel as GREAT as I felt, to feel the success and gain confidence, to change their lives and believe in themselves, like I learned to do. Those things are gifts that I will hold close to me, to experience such a huge turnaround in my life is more than I can express in words. And I found it through Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation. More than a weight loss program, this changed EVERY aspect of my life for the better. And ....it WORKS.
So after I completed the 50 K walk, I had raised the funds needed to sponsor another and pay for a heart rate monitor. Thank you so much to the generosity of my friends. And now, let me reveal to you, with permission, a picture of the results. I give you Theresa Lee, 10 weeks in to the program.
AMAZING! She was nominated by her friend.
"I would like to nominate one of my dearest friends whom I have known
since High School. Her name is Tess, she recently started to do some
training of her own and completed the 5km Run Melbourne. I would likeTess to receive this as she a mild case of Cerebral Palsy but as long as
I have known her it has never stopped her doing anything. She is a mum
to 3 beautiful kids including a son with Aspergers Syndrome so the
training could be a bit of 'Me' time for her. I have seen the Michelle
Bridges do amazing things for some special ladies and I know Tess
would love to continue training."
Now Theresa has not only lost the weight, she is RUNNING! Just recently she massacred a massive 7 minutes off her personal best time to run 5 km and has signed up for her first 10 kilometre funrun! She also regularly works out at 5.30, 6 am in the morning!
I challenge you, each of you to look at what excuses you make to not do the work. I still have excuses..." It's too hot, I'm too tired, i just don't feel like it!" But then I look at this AMAZING woman who has achieved so much in such a short period of time and she inspires me. Monumentally.
And just to finish, this incredible woman is signed up for another round......and I know she will SMASH it just like this time!
