Hey everyone…How is your weekend so far? I am officially on leave and wow how amazing does that feel. I am sick in bed but I still feel great ;-).
I must say it is a killer not to be able to go to the gym being sick, but it is better to doctor myself now. Who wants to be sick on holiday at the beach?? We are going to Ballito for a week or so and I can’t wait. I will definitely stick to my diet and I’m taking my running shoes, dumbbells and yoga mat with for those early morning training sessions. I wanted to transfer my gym contract there for the week but there is no virgin active :-(… It is in times like this that planning and sticking to clean eating is crucial and important. I have worked so so hard that I just WONT give it up in one week. I will pack the healthy beach snacks for those cravings, but will not indulge in the food like I use to over December holidays!
Recap over the last week: This week have been a week filled with emotions like I can’t describe in words or over a post. It was a 12 week journey that came to an end, final preparations in gym, final measurements, final photo shoot, writing and compiling my winning report and so the week was packed full of to do’s. But what an excellent week it was.
I am excited about what is ahead. This 12 week total body transformation may have come to an end but that is only the beginning for me to what is to come.
I will be visiting the USN head office on Monday where I will personally hand in my passport for the competition as well as discuss my maintenance diet and supplement changes! Looking forward to that and will keep you posted!
I want to thank USN South Africa and everyone involved in this campaign – 12 Week Body Transformation. I can confess today that it exactly what it says! I was always the one pointing fingers saying it is impossible to make such a big transformation in your body, or those people must get paid to do that advertisement, or that is some good editing skills etc. But today I can wholeheartedly say that I believe in the product with my whole heart and that I am proof that change is possible!
You can give hundreds of excuses why you can’t do it believe me been there, sayings like this: I don’t have time for gym, I don’t have time to plan or make healthy meals, I have an underactive thyroid I can’t lose weight or things like I have depression I can’t use any medication/tablets or products, my lifestyle does not allow such drastic change….
Yes you can go on forever making excuses and each one listed there was what I used…Until I wanted it bad enough.
Today I can tell you this: I am no longer tired, don’t have a headache every single day, don’t have mood swings, don’t struggle with panic attacks/anxiety anymore, and don’t feel bloated. There is so many things I can mention here why it is so worth the effort to how you will feel at the end. But the shift must happen/take place in your heart!
I will walk this road with you and share all the advice I possibly can. You can ask me. If it is personal and you don’t want to comment on the blog feel free to email me at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
You absolutely do have the power to change…Believe in yourself! Have a super fabulous Saturday.
I DID IT!
Those 3 words is what is going over and over in my head.
Today is the end of my 12 week challenge and how exciting, for now the journey ahead starts!
I was a little emotional this morning when I realized I did it… I can tell you today that the feeling of achieving something like this for yourself is PRICELESS…
I am excited, sad, emotional and happy and all the emotions you can think of, that is what I am currently experiencing while sitting here.
This is the biggest “personal” achievement in my life – I never thought I could transform my body the way I did but I tell you today that when you set your mind to it and if you want it bad enough you will and CAN do it.
I have worked so hard but every drop of sweat was so worth it…
I have lost 8.70kg in 12 weeks and 15.08% of fat.
As the end of my 12 Week Transformation Challenge is in sight, emotions are running high at times and there is so many questions going through my head…
What if I could have done more, what if I did more Abs, what if I did not have that toffee ;-), what if and if and if. Until I realized the following: I have given it my ALL, I have tried my best and that is what matters. Nothing more nothing less – By giving things your best is the BEST!
For everyone out there and especially my sister Mashinke this is for you. We have worked HARD and persevered throughout this challenge…We have the rest of our lives ahead to make healthy choices and to reach those many goals.
Focus on where you are at now and don’t live or walk in regret. Life is too short for that. If you have worked hard reaching some goals or by making some lifestyle changes – Be happy and stop being so hard on yourself!
Have a super awesome day and share with others the BLISS inside you on this beautiful day!
