For the first time ever, I've managed to finish a full workout program. I usually have this bad habit of letting something get in the way and then quitting between Week 5 to 8. This time though, I powered through! There was one week in between where I had the flu and another where I was too busy and tired with work but even with an extra two weeks, I still managed to get through it all and I can see and feel the difference this plan has given me!
So first thing's first - progress photos!
Since it was required by the plan, I also took me measuremets from week 1 to 12 and this definitely helped me notice some difference i might not have seen in the photos as well.

In terms of workouts, 90% of the time I followed the plan completely, sometimes weekends are hard so there were times where I had to skip Saturday's cardio session and towards the end of the plan, some of the workouts got so hard I had to change it to suit what I could manage. Still, this is mostly thanks to the workouts that i saw and definitely felt a difference in my strength.
In terms of meals - I transitioned to being vegan within the first couple of weeks of the plan. So i completely gave up all meats, dairy, eggs and honey. Before transitioning, I didn't eat junk food too often or overeat much - generally my meals weren't too bad. But after being vegan, things changed a lot more for me. No meas and more veggies definitely made a difference in terms of how many calories and nutrients i was consuming. I felt better and recovery time between workouts was phenominal so this did help me do better.
The meal suggestions in the plan were perfect, and though I didn't try them all, it's easy to change them around to suit how you eat (though I recommend making them vegan!).
Also, I completely stopped having stuff like frozen yoghurt, cakes, ice cream, pancakes etc not the worst thing in the world since i didn't have them often, but it made it easier to pick a healthy option instead.
And i learned PB on toast, though people may say "eat in moderation" you can never really have too much of!
I may not have had the perfect "clean diet" or followed the plan 100% but as you can see, i still saw results, results i am very happy with.
just imagine how much more progress i would have made if i did manage to do it all as expected. The whole reason why this still worked was because this wasn't a plan that expected you to crash diet or over-exercise to get "fast results" it's real eating for nutrition and health, it's proper workouts expected to see you progress, not just some weight loss solution.
You may not want to start bodybuilding, and that's fine, I don't want to either, but this plan still worked wonderfully. I'd still happily recommend it to anyone who needed something new to try.
