Mama OWL Blog: Project 6 Pack | Week Six

Project 6 Pack | Week Six

Sunday, 15 February 2015



I did it! I did it! I made it to the end of the six week Project 6 Pack course. Honestly, when I started I was so far out of my comfort zone I didn't think I'd get there. I was anxious about not knowing anyone, and it was such hard work, especially for someone like me who does very little exercise beyond swimming and walking.

I have stuck to Laura and Amirah's diet & nutrition advice to the letter because I wanted to get the most out of it. No "Oh if I eat a mars bar nobody will know" - I will know, and in the end it's my body that suffers. I did (and still do) get cravings but managed to quash them with fruit & honey, and if at any point I'd needed a pep talk I could have contacted either of them for support at any time.

I managed to attend 3 classes a week, two on a Monday and one on a Wednesday, but hope to up this to 4 or even 5 a week with a bit of schedule re-jigging for round two, which starts tomorrow. It is hard work, it is tough - but when I leave the studio after class I feel amazing as well as exhausted. I feel so much better in myself that I actually can't even describe it. I am taking responsibility for my health and my body. I want to look and feel better, and Project 6 Pack is helping me achieve my goals.

The support from Laura and Amirah as well as all the girls in class is fantastic, everyone spurs each other on, I have never once felt self conscious or silly despite my initial fears. We are all there for the same reason and everyone helps each other. I am also officially the new Project 6 Pack 'record holder', with the biggest loss in six weeks.

I have lost an amazing 9kg (just shy of 20lbs), 50.5cm (19.8") and my body fat percentage has gone from 36.78% down to 26.83%.

I still have a way to go before I make it to where I want to be, but I am well on my way and feeling motivated, and excited to see & feel my health and body changing and my fitness improving. I hope you'll stick with me and continue to follow my progress, I have had so much support and it really means a lot.

So, without further ado, I promised you some before & after pictures - and here they are.

  9. Great results. Worth the hard work. I need to get onto the exercise side now, but whenever I go to start, I get a killing sore throat and know that I'll struggle to breathe if I'm exerting myself.
