Sonya's journey... pt 1.

So my journey so far consists of years of fad diets, no exercise, the thought of rocking up to a gym in my oversized t shirt being watched by these buffed up bodies terrified me. So I dealt with it by not doing it!


My weight has gone up and down over the years, I’m an emotional eater so I eat when I’m happy, sad, angry… all the bloody time hence why I’m in the state I’m in.


Back in June I decided I’d had enough, I took the plunge, had a call with Elliot and the next week I pulled into The Mint Yard (I nearly pulled back out again but I got spotted and bribed in). The BEST thing I ever did.


I’ve been going 3 mornings a week mainly with Jacqui. She may be small but don’t be deceived. I’m sure her eyes glow red some mornings!


I have my good days as well as my bad. Some days dragging my ass out of bed at 5 I do question what I’m doing, but I do it. It’s taken time but I’m starting to feel stronger, my measurements are changing and I feel proud that I’m doing it.


I have the attention span of an E-numbered up toddler, so they are doing something right!


Back to the present day... today was a good day, good sleep, feeling positive, get in bright and early do my program. I’m super chuffed with the weights I’m lifting, really pushed today. As usual the hiit at the end finished me off for the day, bloody mountain climbers?! Ass giggling legs not wanting to cooperate and being bashed in the face with my boobs.


Session done, crawled my way home, needed help to get my bra on as my arms are shaking from the weights and although I feel like a dick asking my child to help me get dressed I’m happy lol... I’ve worked hard and this is the result. Gonna ache like a bitch in the morning!!
