Before starting the Easy Healthy Living Program I was stuck in a food rut and wasn’t committed to exercising more than 1-2 times a week. I would grab the easiest thing in the fridge to eat for meals –like a piece of toast for lunch or cheese and crackers for snacks. I cooked the same few meals on repeat and was bored of cooking and eating. Since doing the program I’ve lost weight, have heaps more energy and am sleeping better than ever. I’ve started eating a large variety of meals, especially interesting snacks again and now I try to cook everything from scratch. My favourite things about the program were having a daily workout planned, a meal plan planned, great support group through Facebook and I really enjoyed doing the daily challenges. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone as it is achievable, fun and teaches people a whole new way to live their life and eat healthier.
Before the Easy Healthy Living Program, I didn’t drink enough water, yoyo ate throughout my working days and then tended to eat too much on my days off because I felt so run down and hungry. On the program I ate more food, but on a regular basis and became mindful of having a water bottle on hand which gave me more energy (I even have a water bottle on my bedside table now so that I can drink before I start my day). The program was well laid out and easy to understand. The meals were simple and it was good to try new foods. Being part of the Facebook accountability group with other like-minded people ideas was encouraging and in itself a boost. I loved how everyone was happy to share their meal ideas and photos and share their experiences throughout the program.
Penny’s fitness, nutrition and lifestyle guidance has provided me with the opportunity to develop new skills and a new mindset. Her workouts are fun, challenging and provide a full body overhaul. Her nutritional advice has truly changed the way I view food and given me a new set of tools to work with. I consider Penny’s coaching to be a complete lifestyle approach to health, fitness and ultimately happiness. Truly an awesome coach!
