Thank you Sarah & Dougal. Your support and coaching has changed me forever. I’ve got a new mindset, new attitude and a new body! Never before have I been this close to my ideal body. I’ve been “Forever FICX’d”
Not only did I FOCUS, but was a bit on the FANATICAL side.
My workouts were performed with INTENSITY and they were INTENTIONAL.
Not only was I COMPLIANT, but was also CONSISTANT for the entire 10 weeks.
I did it all with XCELLENCE and put a little XTRA on top!
I gave it 100% plus and the results happened. I’ve learned that I needed to adopt the “habit” mindset instead of “diet” mindset. I needed to change my entire attitude about nutrition, exercise, body image and reign in my thoughts about myself. It all starts in your head. Do the mental part and the rest will follow. Do the program and it will work.
I’ve had several “highlights” during this 10 week challenge, but one that really hit me was when Sarah & Dougal decided to give up coffee when I decided to give up weighing myself everyday. They’d only have it on my weigh in days. Can you imagine that? What support I felt having them give up such a treasured habit just for me! Making the decision to quit weighing myself everyday has been life changing and knowing that they were giving up coffee on those days made it easier to not jump on the scale on a daily basis. Once the habit was broken I realized how chained I was to that thing. That silly number on the scale would affect my entire day. I was getting to the point of weighing myself at night too. Very un-helpful. Now I weigh once a week and am even bummed when it’s too low knowing that I need to increase my lean body mass. Measurements rule. The scale is a non-issue. Thank you Sarah & Dougal for your sacrifice, solidarity and support. You’re AWESOME! And I’m forever grateful.
