Ellie – Testamonial

I met Ellie when she joined my Pilates sessions as a guest. A busy mother of a grown up family, walking her dogs twice daily, a keen dancer and working full time she needed a no nonsense solution to her needs.

This is Ellie’s transformation story.
(In her words)
——————————————————–
In May I went to the Doctor because I felt rubbish, I was tired, grumpy, sleeping poorly, my skin was dry and flaky, my hair was coarse and thinning and my nails were peeling and breaking.
I was overweight and nothing I tried could shift the excess.
The doctor suggested a Well Person MOT and blood tests. I also decided that I would also take matters in my own hands and start following more closely the nutritional and exercise advice offered by Jackie.
I started slowly, making little changes, then attended Jackie’s irks hop in June and it was a revelation. I learnt so much!! I feel better than I have for a long time, many, many friends and family have noticed too!
Everyone wanting to know what I had been doing to make such a transformation, including my GP when I went back for 2nd blood tests in July.
Hair, skin, nails, posture, sleep, energy and flexibility ( which has been noted at by dancing class) all improved. The classes are great fun too!
Thank you Jax

She followed this blog, my twitter feed and joined my support group too.

Fat Burning Myth #2

this skinny model definitely avoided resistance training!!!

#2. Fat Loss Myth

DO NOT Lift Weights 
What they say: You may get bulky, stronger, but won’t burn as many calories when compared to doing aerobic exercise. in a way that’s true – because you won’t burn as many calories while you move heavy things about – but what happens for the other 23 hours a day is more important.
What really happens: There is no better way to get stronger, LEANER, and more shapely than by lifting weights in combination with a healthy cardiovascular program.
Use It or Lose It
When you don’t use the muscle, you are in danger of losing the muscle, meaning if you avoid resistance training you will preserve your fat stores and use your muscles for fuel.
What does that do?
Your metabolism slows down as you lose muscle, leaving you burning calories at a snail’s pace instead of like an over excited 3 year old.
Here’s the deal: Strength training builds and maintains lean muscle mass on your body.
Lean muscle mass is your metabolism-boosting tissue!
In fact, if you have a low amount of lean mass and high fat mass, then chances are, your metabolism will be sluggish, and you will struggle to lose weight and or fat and will probably NEVER keep it off..
Include a little bit of strength training and you will find you have definition in places you didn’t even know existed, plus, you may find you’re hungrier during the day.
[You should be hungry at meal times – otherwise why are you eating? think about that one.   Most of us are never hungry – and eat for all kinds of other reasons  – like habit, tradition, sadness, celebration, anger, frustration the list goes on.]
Feeling hungry is a good sign that you have boosted your metabolism by increasing your lean muscle mass.  So start moving heavy things around, get out your resistance bands and make your muscle work hard.  Wake up starving in the morning!!
Eat Clean, Train Hard, Get Great Results
