12wbt finale disappointment
A couple of weekends ago I flew to Sydney for the finale workout and party for the Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation.
I can not speak highly enough about her program, it takes a straight forward, no nonsense approach that to lose weight you need to eat restricted calories and exercise hard. She offers a fantastic range of menu plans and so many different exercise plans that there is no excuse not to give it a go, the mind setting lessons that she teaches through out the twelve weeks are so invaluable to creating a healthy, happy life.
In saying that I was so disappointed in my experience in Sydney.
From hearing about previous experiences the workout has been, fun, exciting, challenging and most of all different!
A body attack class with 1000+ people in the park was not what I was hoping for. It doesn't help that I'm not a fan of body attack...I think that 'running man' should run far away, it just wasn't the experience I had hoped for.
The party was also something left to be desired...the lack of food was disappointing, along with the fact that we had to line up at a bain marie to get it, after the speeches Michelle Bridges was nowhere to be seen. I had the feeling that the whole she-bang was about the $$ rather than celebrating every ones hard work and successes. It also sat strangely with me that there was an open bar...seems wrong at a health and fitness party, in saying that I certainly had my fair share of champagne- figured I needed to get my $75 worth!
Kate & Jane and meeting Karen made for a brilliant time.
The highlight for the weekend was the 2 hour plane flight home, Kate and I chatted for the whole entire way- despite my plans of reading and Kate's plans of sleeping. Its awesome to get to know her better.
I have decided not to do another round of the 12wbt- I was undecided before I went away, but the disappointments certainly helped me make my decision. I have learnt everything that I think I'm going to learn in the program, its time for me to do this on my own!
Have you ever been let down by something built up to be amazing?? What did you do about it??
