I first met Brad in September 2008 at an information evening held for a pilot program I ran with another business owner called, “Red Day Energy”. The concept is to improve the health of business owners and employees; without health, what is business or financial success, AND how healthy can your business stay if you are not healthy yourself?
Along with his bosses and fellow colleague, Jo (yes another Success Story below), Brad engaged in the Red Day Energy program until its completion in December of 2008. Since then he has truly consolidated a completely new lifestyle and is enjoying a very different experience to when he began.
The journey with Brad has been sensational! Seeing him transform from a young man in his early 20’s who was stressed out (having his blood pressure monitored and investigated), lacking passion and simply “going through the motions”, to a confident, determined and driven individual has been so rewarding!
His bosses and colleagues will attest to the dramatic transformation, as will his friends and family. In fact, some might say the transformation was such that it attracted a passionate, happy and fun relationship into his life 🙂
Yes, Brad is now my partner and we have been together since January 2009. Let’s just say, the healthy, fit, happy and confident Brad I re-encountered after the Christmas break was too irresistable to let by! haha.
Enjoy his story guys! 🙂 xoxo
“I met Bridget at a seminar that my workplace invited me to called Red Day Energy. At first I didn’t really know what to expect. I knew nothing about what this seminar was going to be selling, out of interest I tagged along.
Sitting there listening to Bridget and listening to all the facts and figures that were spoken I started to realise that I was living my life in all the wrong ways. When
I thought I was eating healthy – I wasn’t, When I thought I had energy – I never did. I can say all this now because I have been taught by Bridget the fundamentals of living a happy, fullfiling, energized and active lifestyle.
She taught me to start thinking healthy- in ALL aspects of my life, not just food- and when you start thinking healthy you start being healthy.
My boss signed me up to this course and I was keen to find out more so I agreed. My goal was to be able to cook healther meals and to lose some weight and also to be a happeir person and to be able to deal with stress a lot better.
I started Red Day Energy at 86kg. My goal weight was to be around 75kg.
I was a bit optimistic about the whole thing and I always thought “how hard can it be”, but I never made an effort to actually do it.
Until I started to see Bridget.
I was determined to get to the goals I set myself. Bridget had some fantastic ideas and I love cooking so I put those ideas into practice. I found that it is actually much easier to cook healthy meals, I was always under the impression that it takes to much time and I never had that time. These were just excuses I was telling myself.
Now everything I eat is 100 times healthier than what I used to eat. When I compare shopping lists from the past to now, it makes me laugh; no wonder I felt so terrible! I also now eat things I always thought I didn’t like, such as avocado, sweet potato and eggplant! My preferences for foods have completely changed and if I eat something I used to like, my body reacts very badly. It is so easy to stay on track because my body now craves and prefers what I have learnt to eat. To me it is now natural and simple!
I am now weighing in at 74kg. I have also maintained this weight give or take 1kg.
I feel fantastic and I have such a positive outlook on life now. I feel confident in the descisions I make at work. I feel so much better in myself. My stress levels have dramatically turned around and I am so much more happier with my life and in myself.
Thanks Bridget for all of your inspiration and support!”
