This Weight Loss Success Story Is All About Creating Healthy Habits

September 19, 2015 2 min read

You can have all of the information provided to you for how to achieve weight loss, but it takes a lot more than being in-the-know to actually see results. Changing your habits and staying focused are key in getting closer to the body you feel you belong in. For POPSUGAR Select Fitness blogger Katie Dunlop of Love, Sweat, and Fitness, she found this to be true. After years of unsuccessful dieting, in 2012, Dunlop finally made the changes to truly begin her   weight loss journey. "I would lose some pounds but gain them right back; nothing was sustainable for me," she said. "I was unhappy with how I looked, but more importantly with how I felt every day. I finally decided it was time for a change and set out to find a healthy way to get fit." Now, 45 pounds lighter, she has traded in her inconsistencies for healthy habits. In an interview with POPSUGAR, Dunlop said that what finally made her decide to change her ways was "years of failed fad diets and constantly fluctuating weight." She knew that something was missing, and was determined to figure out what. "I got to a point where I refused to let myself feel unhealthy and unhappy!" she said. BEFORE weight loss AFTER weight loss Her go-to for exercise? "You can find me in the gym three to four days a week weight lifting, circuit training, or running sprints on the treadmill. The other days I like to take my workouts outside for some bodyweight HIIT exercises, a run, or even yoga!" And as for her meal plan, Dunlop likes to keep it as clean as she can. "Breakfast is usually an egg omelet with two egg whites and spinach. For lunch I often have chicken breast with broccoli and avocado. One of my favourite dinners is grilled salmon with spinach, butternut squash, and grilled onions. My favourite snacks include hummus and veggies, peanut butter with celery or apple." Though Dunlop is proud to say she is happy, healthy and 45 pounds lighter, she can't ignore how important it is to stay focused. "It takes time, dedication, and a whole lot of patience. The excess weight didn't come off overnight, so we shouldn't expect it to disappear that way. No matter what the scale shows, know that if you are making healthy meal choices and exercising regularly, you WILL see your body begin to transform. Not in a day, not in a week, but it will happen." What do you think of Dunlop's method to achieve the body she desired, and her advice for getting there? Source: Popsugar

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
