question 1:
What was your reason to start the challenge?
What a year 2020 was well to add to the chaos of a strange surreal year I got diagnosed with a serious health condition which at the time was life threatening long story short...I began treatment in march 2020 and continued on with life and chose to focus on all the amazing stuff that I had taken for granted like the everyday stuff that sometimes because of the busyness of "life" I missed out on experiencing... I found I had time to stop and appreciate my Family, Friends and especially my Grand-babys My gym time became a meditative life inhaling experience rather than a going through the motions of the exercise and counting reps sure I wasn't as strong and I had to do stuff a little slower but it just felt so good to still be able to the way I had and I am still having regular checkups with my Doc so all good there. In August 2020 I started getting info from the max's team for the September challenge I got excited and started to prep but unfortunately I hit a low so going with the advice of my Doc I didn't sign up...but being connected with the Facebook group was/is so inspirational I continued to train as if I were in the challenge. So here I am 52 cleared by my Dr and ready to go for it. Much love to you all
question 2:
What did you like most about the challenge?
I love the interactions with the other challengers within the group and even though we are all across Australia there is a connection and an inspiration amongst us to do and be the best we can be. The posts that some of the challenges put up about their progress are inspirational and It's like we all have an opportunity to be part of each other’s journey. During the challenge, I lost my Aunty to a tragic car accident and the love and support I felt was so amazing. I will never forget that. I like the sense of we are all in this together most about the challenge.
question 3:
What was the hardest thing about your challenge?
Was losing my Aunty
question 4:
What impact has the challenge had on your life?
Well, this is my 3rd maybe 4th challenge if you count last September that’s the one my Dr said I shouldn’t do so I didn’t register but slowly followed it anyway. Ok my resting heart rate is 52 that was 68-72 I’ve pulled up PB’s in most of my Gym sessions when I’ve been going for a PB I’ve been able to come off blood pressure meds which I’ve been on for 10 years I’ve dropped 9kg and increased my strength I’ve learned and will continue to learn about nutrition which I think has been one of the biggest impacts in this round of the challenges.
question 5:
What would you say to people who are thinking of doing the challenge?
The Challenge is like opening a door to a healthy, fit, strong life and walking through. The 12 weeks of the challenge is the start of that healthy lifestyle. It is a rewarding process that just works if you follow it, hard sometimes but what isn’t hard these days. Give it a go 💪🏽
question 6:
Anything else you would like to tell us about the challenge?
In March 2020 I was diagnosed with a brain tumor and the impact of that being on my life was devastating to me and my family. It wasn’t good during the first stages then things began to change and it turned out to be non-cancerous. After many tests, treatments, MRI’s and a change in diet the tumor has shrunk significantly. It is something I have to live with but it has motivated me in all areas of my life to live positively with gratitude and be the best I can be while helping others as much as possible. Much love Sel
