Expresso Show SABC 3 Interview

I had so much fun with the Expresso Team and with USN. It is amazing that I had the opportunity to share my story with you and I truly hope that I can encourage or motivate you to become the best you could be.

You are so beautiful within and what a added bonus to feel super from inside and outside!

Know that it is possible – It will be hard but it is NOT that hard once you make it a lifestyle and a goal to achieve.

Have a super day…


Recap on the week…

Just when I started typing; the following words in a song started playing in the background…

You’re exceptional the way you are you, don’t need to change for nobody…Whether you believe that….YOU ARE… You are nothing but exceptional.

These words are on my heart for today and I want you to take heart that you are special indeed!

How was your week, still on track with all you do?

I had a little “bumper” in my week with some days filled with many mixed feelings/emotions. I went to the doctor in the week and I will be going for a “little” operation (laparoscopy) on Tuesday – nothing major and I trust that everything will work out for the best! No training for those few days but hopefully I can be back in the gym in no timeJ. I’m a little depressed on the no training side and I have no idea how long is recovery time but hopefully not more than 3 days or so. Like I said in my previous post that I’m at a point where there is so many things going through my head – From the competing side in fitness – to starting a little family! Well the doc instructed for me to pick up a bit more fat and around 2kg! But oh my this is something to wrap my head around!!! I just decided I will carry on eating clean and healthy and if I do pick up I will make sure it is good muscles and not just fat! But that is left there; let me share the good news…


I appeared on my first magazine add in the South African Shape Magazine for the USN Phedra Cut Lipo XT product.

I was always the one thinking that the photographs of a “weight loss” product was a scam, you know those before and after photos, with your first reaction oh yes that’s some good editing skills that went on there…hehe! Well today I can tell you that my photographs used in this add is my transformation without any editing – that was really my before and it was an exact 12 week journey towards my transformation. That was not the end though and I would say I’m in better shape now than then but still those photographs were taken exactly on the day marking the first and the last day of week 12!

I don’t have the digital version yet but here is a photo I took from the magazine 😉

Shape Magazine February 2012

Then I received my script for my first TV shoot for the Expresso Show on SABC 3. I’m excited, nervous all at the same time. The shoot will be on Monday and I can’t wait for this experience. I will keep you all posted. The screening will be on the 1’st of February so keep thumbs that everything will turn out the way it should.

So now you know why I said I had a rollercoaster week: First the news of the operation and some other things – then the news that I am the face of USN Phedra Cut Lipo XT.

Excitement with a tad bit of nervousness.

Next week will be week 3 of the LiveFit trainer – How is everyone going on? Do you log your exercises? Obviously my week 3 will move on until the following weekL. You must keep me posted.

Enjoy your Sunday and if possible prep your food in advance.

12 Week Total Body Transformation – Final Shoot


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.

Total body transformation…

This last 10 Weeks has been life changing and a journey that no words can describe. I still have some hard work but I am excited about the progress so far!

This is VERY embarrassing to me but I want to share this with YOU and to tell you that YOU can make a difference. This was me ten weeks ago. Bloated, tired, emotional, no self confidence and ALWAYS felt tired, irritated and so much more. Everything changed the one morning when I woke up and said to myself this is it! Take charge of your health and life. You absolutely can do it!

First model shoot ever!

Hi everyone, sorry for only posting now but what a hectic two days it was…

So I did my first Model Shoot yesterday and wow what an amazing experience. I can’t explain to you all the emotions that I experienced in this one day. My day started off with an awesome session in the gym. I took leave for the day and decided that this is going to be a “me” day 🙂

I booked a manicure and pedicure to start off with and then it was off to the hair salon! I decided there and then that it was time for change ;-), drastic change…I went there for a colour and blow wave but walked out there with a complete different hairstyle. I decided to cut my hair short! I asked a few friends on my blackberry what they think and all said: Go for it! So I trusted everyone’s response and cut it short.

Then I rushed off to the mall to look for some last minute outfits or shoes for my photo shoot…So I arrived at PictureCafé and did not know what to expect. I was slightly nervous but excited at the same time. It was time for make-up and then all the fun began. Before I go any further I would like to thank PictureCafé – Johann and his beautiful wife Delene for this opportunity and wonderful prize. I would have NEVER done this for myself and this was really a God send! Again thank you for the exceptional service and excellence! As a team you will go far. I would gladly refer you to all.
