Hello Cristina. I bumped into your story while looking if Caroline`s Girvan Epic program really pays off . It`s been a week since I read your blog here and every other day I come back to re-read parts that I find interesting, to take notes and to add motivation for myself . I saw in one of your replies that you also built a Facebook group, and I was wondering if I can join there?
Thanks and keep up, you are really impacting people`s life 👏

so inspiring! I wasn't too sedentary until I got a desk job. Then it was all downhill. You have really opened my eyes to the excuses I have been using for not working out at home. Thank you for sharing!!

I found this thread this morning and found it really inspiring. I'm a similar age to you and I like strength training but I don't get to do much as I have three children and a full time jobs. However I do fit in a run, a cycle, 2 kettlebell sessions , yoga and Pilates each week, after seeing you progress I think I could be working more effectively. Any advice? I have kettlebells 6-12 kg (probably will get 14kg soon) and I just bought some resistance bands.
I tried the Caroline Garvin you recommended today, I did a kettle bell one as I don't have big enough dumbbells or a bar, I loved it!
But I also see you making lots of progress with bodyweight exercises.
Anyway, any advice as to how I could make more effective use of my training time at home with my limited equipment. I can usually dedicate 40 minutes to an hour 5 days a week.
Thanks again for the inspiration!

Thank you for the quick reply! I try to eat 100g of protein a day but I think your calculation would have me needing more like 150g if protein do you happen no this is key to the muscle you have built? I struggle to get more than 100 in.
I have put off buying dumbbells or a bar as I don't have space, I have a set of 2kg dumbbells but this is far to light. Do you think buying one set of dumbbells maybe 8or 10kg would be of use?
I know I am getting stronger but I think I could be more consistent, maybe I should focus on some particular exercise to get better at, e.g. press ups. After watching your videos this morning I realised I can probably into do one proper one, and I thought I was strong!!
Thanks again for taking the time. Your progress is amazing!
