Happy Wednesday you lovely bunch!
I’m so excited to share this post with you, the final instalment of my fitness challenge with Arla Protein. Its been a tough but a great three months and I can honestly say, I feel great!
If you’ve been following my journey you’ll remember that in my first fitness post I divided the months into three sections –
1. MIND – WELL BEING
2. BODY – STAMINA
3. SPIRIT – PROGRESS
Months one and two have been and gone and now in my third and final month it’s time to look back and talk about my progress and what I’ll be taking away with me after this crazy health kick. So firstly, my ‘spirit’ as it were is at an all time high. The effect exercise and good nutrition has had on my mood and overall well-being is unreal! I’m happier, more positive and have heaps more energy than before. The mix of classes from hardcore boot camp to outdoor yoga with Our Parks has really helped me add variety to my workout, meaning I enjoy it so much more. Also my one on one sessions with Born has helped with my technique, giving that personal focus and attention you don’t always get in group classes. I’ve found both my stamina and flexibility has improved greatly as well as my overall attitude towards working out – I actually look forward to a sweaty session now because I know I’ll feel amazing afterwards!
I’ve been incredibly lucky during this fitness challenge to get to try all the goodies Arla Protein has to offer. I’ve mentioned my favourite in each of my posts and this month is no different. Moving away from the shakes I went for the ‘on-the-go’ Protein Yoghurt in Mango. It is so tasty!! I mean I love yoghurt anyway but the mango flavour is so refreshing and gives that much needed citrus kick after a workout. The on-the-go pouch makes it so easy to open and drink instead of worrying about carrying a spoon around with you.
So there we have it, three months of sweat and….well more laughter than tears but I’m feeling on top of the world! Thank you to Arla and Our Parks for putting me through my paces and making me the best I can be. I intend to carry on with my sprint training as it’s something I’ve come to love and those outdoor yoga sessions have been my escape each sunday morning, so I’ll be sticking to that too. As for the protein… I won’t be giving those chocolate shakes up anytime soon that’s for sure!
