Amy's healthy weight blog

It's been eight long weeks, but Amy Henderson finished her Healthy Weight Programme. The going was tough, but the rewards significant.

Eight weeks later and I have completed the Sports Science Institute's beginners Healthy Weight Programme.

I was never a big gym fan, I mean once I got to the gym that was fine, but it was the actual getting there that I had the problem with. Why go get sweaty when shoe shopping is the other alternative was my thinking. And although I haven't had to sacrifice my love of shoes and all things that match them, my mindset towards exercising is now a lot more positive.
