Testimonial: bounti Re-Set Challenge Winner, Dale Hawley
Yay - another inspiring testimony! Stories like these really tug on my heart strings. There’s nothing that quite compares to seeing and hearing how bounti changes lives. It makes every second of hard work worth it!
Dale Hawley’s story shows us that making healthy lifestyle changes doesn’t always have to be about weight loss. Her story is all about how rebounding and the Re-Set Programme gave her a sustainable lifestyle solution to meet her fitness and wellness goals - despite the pandemic and her busy life as a mom.
It’s so motivating to hear Dale’s willingness to adapt and find ways to achieve her goals despite all the challenges thrown her way – life really is about survival of the fittest!
Dale’s perseverance, positive attitude and uplifting story make her such a deserving winner of the Re-Set Challenge. If she can do it, you can do it too!
“When I started this challenge, I didn’t have a whole lot of weight to lose, as I am a stay-at-home mom of two small boys who keep me running around all day. I wasn’t looking for weight loss, I was looking for a complete lifestyle change. I wanted to change my diet and the way I was exercising.
I made the decision to stop sulking about the fact that, because of the pandemic, the gyms became an unreliable exercise option. I had to find a way to adapt. I needed to find a sustainable solution so that I would be able to continue exercising even if the kids were home sick, we had another lockdown or busy life got in the way.
When I first started bouncing, I had all the gear but no idea! I was rebounding for a maximum of 30 minutes and then thinking, ‘What? She wants me to add wrist and ankle weights too?’. I saw the 12-week Re-Set Challenge advertised, and thought it would be a monstrous task, but I love a good challenge, so I knew it was something I just had to sink my teeth into.
It wasn’t all plain sailing – I hit a few rocky roads along the way, with sick children and general crazy, hectic mom-life commitments. However, perseverance and dedication kept me pushing through and doing what I could, when I could.
On week 5, I turned a corner. I really started getting into the menu choice and the rebounding, and I was more motivated than ever. I kept hearing Tertia’s supportive messages in my mind saying, ‘re-set as many times as you need to, just make sure that you RE-SET!’.
After it all, 12 weeks later, I had finally reached the end! I can now manage to do a full-length class with weights and all – and I’m absolutely loving it! The 12-week time period really gets you into the routine of getting rid of all your bad habits – especially in the eating department.
My only complaint is that it’s over now. I felt like I really started to find my feet and finally got into the groove of enjoying the classes and meals. However, I’m so happy to say that I’ve walked away from this opportunity actually being able to exercise! The Re-Set Challenge taught me the value of adaptability, as I can now train at any time, in any place, regardless of what life throws my way. No matter what happens, I know that I can always ‘RE-SET’.
Thank you so much to Lisa, her team and anybody else who was involved in creating this amazing programme. I was so impressed with everything – from the stunning meals and recipe books to the phenomenal exercise classes and weight-training programmes. I’m absolutely delighted to be training regularly, feeling fit and strong, eating well, and – above all – feeling GREAT! I’m so grateful for the life-changing results that this programme has given me… What’s next?”
