My Body Transformation 8 week challenge at the gym is now half way complete and I’m feeling great for it. I can see a bit of a difference in my torso and the definition in my arms and I generally feel better.

In the week just gone my diet wasn’t as strict so today I’m getting back into the task of food preparation. I think being organised is the key. It’s very easy to make bad decisions if you haven’t got a good meal already prepared. The main problem with food preparation is getting some variety into the diet. I have no desire to eat the same thing every day, especially if it’s not tasty.

I’m a bit nervous about keeping up the momentum for the last four weeks. Hopefully by focusing on feeling and looking good for Europe as well as making the most of this opportunity is enough motivation to keep me on track.

After the four weeks I won’t have access to all of the classes that I do now, that comes at a membership cost that is a bit out of my budget at the moment. I’ll be able to do two classes a week and use the gym as much as I want which I think will be fine. My thinking is that I’ll do one strength/gymnastic style class and one high intensity cardio based class a week and do my own thing the rest of the week.
