28 Day Break Thru- FINALE

I’ve really enjoyed my journey along Fernwood Fitness’ 28 Day Break Thru.

As mentioned in my previous blog post, this programme is designed with a healthy eating & workout plan.
The plan I followed was Vegetarian Pear Shaped. All my meals & workouts were set out for me & each week a video was available for me to watch, talking about everything from lifestyle changes to fad dieting.
The Fernwood Angels; Susan (for mindset), Genevieve (for exercise) and Tracey (for nutrition) are motivating, thorough & dish the dirt on changing your mindset to reach & achieve your goals.
The food plans are easy to follow, each week a shopping list is emailed. Purchase the goods & create your breakfasts, lunches & dinners. There’s a great range of snacks too. All foods are easy to find & there’s nothing I couldn’t locate in my local supermarket. 
The meals take no time to create & most dinners are also eaten for lunch the next day too. If you have a family to feed then double or triple the recipes & serve them up to partners & kids. There was nothing my four year old turned his nose up at & it meant no separate cooking for me.
My goal was to up my fitness & also lose the five kilos is gained since moving back into the family home. Four days before the completion of the 28 Day Break Thru I weighed in at my goal! 
There’s a huge support network involved with the plan, online & in club.
I enjoyed the social networking via the website & also via Facebook & Instagram. 
If you need to lose weight, create a routine or just increase your fitness then please, give the Fernwood Fitness 28 Day Break Thru a go.
The programme is not a chore, it’s a lifestyle change. It’s easy to follow, foods/meals/exercises are interchangeable & you don’t need to be a Fernwood Member.

A huge thank you to Fernwood Fitness & the Fernwood Angels. I’m overjoyed at my results & plan to keep up the new exercise routines & continue enjoying the yummy recipes!

Fernwood 28 Day BreakThru

Today I began the Fernwood Fitness 28 Day Breakthru! The plan runs over 28 days and includes meal and exercise plans. 

I spent yesterday at Caribbean Gardens stocking up on my fruit and vegetables and then headed over to Woolworths for the rest. I was emailed a well thought out shopping list with plenty of fruits and vegetables plus my favourites- almond milk & tofu. 
I’m following the Pear Shape Vegetarian plan. There’s a variety of meal plans to chose from depending on your body type- Ruler, Apple & Pear. It’s ideal to speak to your medical advisor if you need to change anything due to intolerances or food choices such as veganism.
Day One began with a fat free natural yoghurt with mixed seeds followed by snacks of an orange and almonds.

Head over to my Instagram- Halfway2Healthy to see my struggle with the today’s exercise- a jog/run on the treadmill for 50 minutes!

I worked out twice at the gym today, a session in the morning & then one in the evening. If I’m going to do this, then I’m going to give it my all!!
My filling lunch- egg white & salad wholemeal wrap
Preparing kidney & soy beans for dinner tonight, paired with brown rice & mixed green vegetables.
Already I’ve been connecting with other participants online & the support & motivation is overwhelming. It’s great to be able to log into my Breakthru account & read all the well wishes & messages.
I will talk more about the 28 Day BreakThru, the Fernwood Angels & my progress in upcoming entries.
DAY 3 & 4 of Fernwood’s 
28 Day Breakthru- UPDATE

So far so good- a loss of one whole kilo after day two…pretty happy!
The workouts have been great and I’ve been able to learn a few more exercises.
I wasn’t able to take a Pump Class as advised on Day 3 so I did a 50 minute treadmill workout and also used some weights.
The online support has been incredible and I’ve been able to continually connect with others, share photos & motivational quotes. I’m following the meal plans to a tee, and the foods are filling and enjoyable. 
Day 4 started with a yoghurt, seed & nut mix which, although small, really have me the energy for my gym workout!
I’ve told a couple of the Fernwood employees that I’m on the programme and they have been supportive and encouraging!
Here’s to a fantastic rest of the week.
New blog post to come soon.
