THE past six weeks have quite possibly been the most exercise-filled weeks of my life.

When I started this challenge, the only exercise I did was walking to the door when my takeaway arrived.

Now I genuinely enjoy doing exercise, and my day seems to feel incomplete if I haven’t gone to the gym.

I also feel so much better about myself; I can deadlift half my bodyweight and have lost four inches around my waist (which everyone seems to be talking about).

My diet is also much better – there’s not a pizza or burger in sight and my fridge looks eerily colourful, with veg filling the shelves.

This is all thanks to my personal trainer Rich, who has been brilliant throughout.

I think it’s time to get a proper gym membership – and this time I promise to actually use it!
