I am a Volunteer Rescue Operator for the Volunteer Rescue Association in Dubbo NSW, recently I received a dream paid position within the organisation which I am extremely passionate about.
The job takes me to the most remote towns across the state and interstate.
On top of this I regularly traveled overseas this year to present findings for a study I was involved in earlier in the year.
For me I entered into the MP Challenge to ensure my body could perform at its best when called up in any of my positions as lives do depend on my mental alertness and physical capabilities.
I also have a weaker, smaller leg so improving balance was a major goal of mine.
After committing to the challenge very quickly my year started booking out and the travel commitments made me question my ability to complete the program from the outset.
To be very honest with you, I couldn’t face opening up my MP Manual.
Looking at it was painful as I had such a high workload. I was frustrated with the unknown until I realized half the manual was recipes.
I decided to break the book down and just read a couple of pages at a time upon the advice of my trainer Pete.
By the end of my first program I chose my first MP meals from the cookbible and started eating them.
My food prep habits were very hit and miss with the travelling but over time I learnt what I needed to eat and found myself frequenting the same places every time I traveled.
Chefs started to get to know my regular order, even my colleagues would ask If I had trained before we ate out or not so they knew what to order me.
As I got busier I slacked of with the reading but I was happy with what I was applying, two articles which really helped me were the ‘hit the road & dining out’ articles at mp-body.com.
By the end of my 2nd program the results were really starting to show which spurred me on, the balance I gained on my weak leg really motivated me to keep training in the gym wherever I could.
In my final program I noticed what food worked for my body and what foods didn’t
I wasn’t the best at submitting data to Peter but having him there was all the confidence I needed.
Upon reflecting I learnt a different was to look at food within my lifestyle. Having a structured plan in the gym made every session more effective and timing my foods so I could still enjoy my favorite Apreas made the whole change more sustainable.
I hope my transformation inspires other people wanting to take up a better lifestyle showing them with a little bit of effort you can contour the MP program to suit any kind of lifestyle no matter how inconsistent or extreme your routine may be.
