This week I got myself a nutrition plan and some advice from the amazing Amanda at Daily Dose Fitness. I generally eat pretty well, but was starting to feel a little bored with my regular nutrition and my results had slowed, so decided it was time to try something new. With all the group fitness classes I do, I need to ensure that I am fueling myself with enough energy and the correct nutrients to avoid becoming run down.
My downfall is that I have the knowledge and qualifications to know exactly what I need to do, but recently I haven’t been making all the best choices regarding nutrition. I have been taking for granted the fact that I am currently active enough to avoid gaining weight and although I can maintain and eat pretty much whatever I please, I definitely feel much better when I am eating clean. I also wholeheartedly believe that the body functions so much better on nutritious, whole foods and I really need to respect and fuel myself accordingly. I by no means eat an unhealthy diet, but in the last few months, I have let more than enough sweet treats (chocolate! eiik!) and convenience foods creep into my weekly intake.
I’m a group fitness instructor and when I finish this degree, will also be a health professional. I have the duty to be a role model and to live what I preach to others. I will be able to use my qualifications and passions much more affectively if I can demonstrate to other people that I walk the talk. Hence, a little shake up in my nutritional habits is needed.
Amanda has had amazing success with her own health transformation over the last couple of years which has been so inspiring to watch. She has managed to get into amazing shape and control the symptoms from PCOS which is a condition I also suffer from. This is the reason why I decided to enlist in her guidance and assistance. I’m excited and motivated to get into the new plan. I can’t wait to learn more about fueling my body, improving my health and hopefully to see some awesome results of my own!
