USN Face the Fat

I know you must have heard about the “New Year New Me” tagline going around all over and I also know what goes through your mind most of the time…”Just another scam, just another quick fix new year resolution to set me up for failure, just another product or diet or plan that doesn’t work and so the list can go on…”

I used to be the one seeing before and after pics online thinking to myself it is a lie, it is impossible, the before and after photos was edited in Photoshop, that transformation wasn’t 12 weeks its impossible etc- UNTIL I made the mindful decision to transform my body and lifestyle and end up being the one with before and after photos that I couldn’t even believe what I have achieved. I made the decision to take on the Challenge and that was the best decision I could have made for myself.

Today I’m here to tell you that if it is your hearts desire to become the best version of yourself and to reach your weight loss goal then there is no better time to start this journey than now with the support of USN Ultimate Sports Nutrition.

I look forward to see your results!

Your training plan / supplement plan / eating plan ~ So NO MORE excuses ~ Take back control and set a goal that you will reach. The feeling of achieving a personal goal is so rewarding and so worth taking on the Challenge. You deserve to be healthy & fit.

This was my four weeks I did:

My personal goal was to lose 4% of my body weight and I did 🙂 So once again set a personal goal for YOURSELF. Goal weight was 52.8kg

Start weight: 55kg
Weigh in: 52.4kg

 Image-1 IMG_6972.PNG

Bring on the next four weeks 😉 The Challenge is ON are you with me?

PHEDRA CUT

 

 

Will you accept the challenge

Summer is around the corner and you don’t want to end up standing around the corner because you are to shy to have fun out in the summer sun!

It is now the time to take back control and become the best version of YOU. I was the skeptical one about transformations or weight loss journeys and the Before & After photos you see so publicly posted here, there and everywhere – UNTIL I took up the challenge and did it myself…I want to encourage you to take 12 weeks of your life and dedicate it to your health & well being and in the process be transformed not only physically but mentally.

This was my journey and I want to share with you that IT IS POSSIBLE. Yes it will be tough at times but I promise you today it will be worth it. I did the USN Ultimate Sports Nutrition 12 Week Body Makeover Challenge not once but twice and I was transformed indeed.

After my pregnancy I was left with LOADS of weight that I gained and I never thought it was possible to see my six pack again {achieved by my first challenge} and then I did…

Believe

I wish I can carry each one of you to the finish line and inspire you to do it for yourself. Wish I can personally share my journey with each one and encourage you. You deserve to feel amazing and confident and beautiful inside out.

This is just a “tool” for a lifelong journey. At first I didn’t know where to start or what supplements to use or what program to follow – then I opened my USN Started pack and there it was – ALL the information compiled to educate me while taking on the biggest life changing challenge for myself. It made life easier and I was no longer overwhelmed by all the information out there, everything that I needed to assist me in reaching my goal was there…Before I knew, it became a lifestyle and I will never look back.

Yes we all stumble somewhere along the road but the question is; Will YOU get back up and take control?

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…

 

USN 12 Week Challenge starting 30 January 2012

Is there anyone who wants to start the USN Challenge or just live a healthier lifestyle and get rid of unwanted fat? I have decided to guide my sister through a second round of the Challenge being her personal trainer and guide her through the use of correct supplementation and nutrition/diet! If you like to join in like my Facebook page: Body and Lifestyle Challenges Claudine Kidson (click on the link above) and spread the word. Challenge starting on 30 January 2012! I will share a training program/weekly diet/recipes.

YOUR life can and WILL be changed!

HaPpY nEw YeAr!

Hi everyone first of all I want to say HAPPY NEW YEAR, may 2012 be a year filled with blessings, joy, love and may you be prosperous in every single thing that you take on…May you be renewed with a new way of thinking and living…

Do you have any New Year resolutions? Well, I have never made specific New Year resolutions but this year around I decided to make a list of things that I would love to achieve personally and in my life (still have to do the list) lol. I would say it will be more goal orientated than specific resolutions. The most important thing to me is to live everyday as if it is my last! I want to be passionately driven by everything I do. The days of living a mediocre life is something of the past. I will make a point to enjoy everything I do. Whether its work, gym, running or whatsoever.

Let’s recap on the last week or two. It was my birthday on the 23rd of December and wow what a stunning day!! I was so spoiled throughout the day. Thanks to the special people in my life! I got a pair of Puma Faas 300 from the hubby, beautiful light pink roses, lots of Total Sport vouchers :-), make-up and then of course my USN Supplements arrived just in time to crown of a wonderful birthday. Thank you USN South Africa, without the correct supplementation my results would not have been possible!

My birthday - 23 December 2011

Some photographs from the weekend:

Then we spend a few days at Sun City with my husband and amazing friends/cousins! Thank you Sergio, Larissa, Gino and Chantelle it was great fun and would love to do it again!  I must confess that my diet was not all clean and there was some drinking involved! I did however manage to do an 11km run the one morning and a 12km run the other morning. Must have been driven by guilt to go for a run after only a few hours of sleep ;-). I did make the healthy choices wherever possible so did not go all out eating unhealthy! I had my water during the day, decaf coffee with Xylitol, my fruit, rye bread and oats with cinnamon in the mornings. It was only in the evenings that I had Nandos. One thing is a given fact and that is that alcohol is a HUGE SET BACK when it comes to training! I am not a drinker so have never really been affected by it throughout my diet but I had a few drinks while at Sun City and could feel the effect. Again, not overindulging but 2/3 drinks per night is something my body is not use to. I could feel a MAJOR difference in my running/endurance ability.

The few days spend at Sun City was absolutely amazing – We watched a show at the Barnyard, had an awesome New Years Eve at the Valley of the Waves, got a nice tan at Vacation Club and Valley of the Waves and the evenings was filled with great entertainment and some clubbing ;-). The days were filled with lots to do and we had great laughs. The few days spend there was exactly what I needed!

Then today 2.01.2011 the start of the LiveFit trainer:

Those of you doing this program with me how was your first day? It was great to be back in the gym today!

I must say it is a MAJOR challenge for me not to do cardio or to not be able to run my 4-12km a day! The one thing I did not cut out is my skipping between sets. I don’t skip as much as I used to but I did do a few sets of minute skipping between sets just to get the heart rate up a bit! Obviously the more fit you get the harder it becomes to get the heart rate up and the less calories is burned if not done correctly! Diet wise I still had to do a lot of prepping on the food side. I went to get a few things today for it was not possible to get everything before we left to Sun City. It is a challenge to follow the LiveFit diet to the T for there is a few things that are not available in South Africa… But I will see how things go as I go along with the 12 Week Trainer.

I do not have much weight to lose for I already reached my goal weight with the completion of the USN 12 Week Challenge, I have 1kg or so to lose so my focus will be on some muscle gain and serious toning/cutting at the end of Phase 3!

This program is aMaZiNg for those that want to lose a lot of body fat and weight so stick to the program it does work that I promise you!

Would love for you to share your thoughts as you go along.

HaPpY tRaInInG everyone

USN 12-week Body & Lifestyle Transformation Challenge

If you are still considering getting a starter pack I would suggest you save some money and get yourself one. Yes you can do the challenge without it by getting all the info online etc but I would say the USN Starter Pack is a much better option. All the information needed is compiled in the booklet and that “little passport” just makes the challenge more real ;-).

Today 6 October 2011 is my Week 7 date and I am a completely changed person. My lifestyle has improved and changed like no words can describe.

If you have any questions about the challenge visit the USN website: http://usn.co.za

There is some GREAT resources and information. Video clips/testimonies and all the answers you need.

Journal day 37: 23 September 2011

Happy Friday all…Hope you are in a weekend mood. I must be honest it doesn’t feel like a Friday to me, maybe because I’m working!
I woke up tired this morning (maybe because me and my hubby were chatting untill 12 ‘ o clock last night ;-), and I just realized that we must sometimes listen to our bodies. I had a hard week of training and think my body needs the off day tomorrow! Never the less I got up and went of to gym.
This is what I did this morning:

Morning Session: Chest/Triceps

Gym: 5:56 am
Calories: 198 kcal
Calculated fat: 52%
Duration: 1 hour 10 min
Average heart: 106 Maximum: 134
Fat burn improving

No cardio or gym for me tonight, will only focus on abs this weekend. Will maybe work in 2 ab sessions at home when I feel like it :-).
Wake up 1 Sachet Phedra Cut Slim Pack.

Breakfast:
Less than half cup Wholewheat Pronutro and half a Weatbix with fat free milk

After breakfast: 2 CLA 1000′s Capsules

Mid morning Snack:
1 and a half scoops Pure Protein Shake

30 minutes before lunch:
2 Phedra Cut Ultra XT’s

50gram Steamed fish with mixed veggies.

Dinner:
Guess???Ok yes have to confess I had 12 pieces sushi. This was the last sushi for the next 7 weeks it’s time to focus on the challenge…I don’t know the values of the sushi but I can just feel that enough is enough!

How is your Friday? Stay focussed and don’t snack unhealthily.

We CAN do this…

See my supplement corner:

Remember the 20% discount special offer at Dischem!

Journal day 35: 21 September 2011

Hey everybody, I did legs again this morning and some Zumba tonight for my Cardio. You may think there is a repetition of some exercises in one week.

This is because I am doing a 12 week Jamie Eason program, but because I only started with it on week 4 of my 12 Week Challenge I am trying to work it in so that I can get on track with the program and to finish at week 12 the same time as my challenge ends.

Journal day 33+34: 19-20 September 2011

Hey all happy Monday…New week, new challenges and new beginnings
for some.

How was your weekend?

Be motivated this week, give it your all. We all do get the off days, I know that believe me but that is why we have each other…to encourage each other in tough times.

I bought Phedra Cut Slim packs today and I can’t wait to drink it.

Today and tomorrow are my stimulant free days – so no xt’s for me ;-). At least now I have something to look forward to on Thursday…

Training wise it’s going ok. I really do feel discouraged at times when I walk out of the gym with 200kcal burned and no sweat. It just doesn’t feel right for a cardio junky like me. 😉 I know I must take my eyes of from the calories burned etc but it just doesn’t feel good! I am seriously going to read up on this matter for I need to know what is it that makes your gym workout as effective as possible and worth the effort. I can not lift the weights heavier to get my heart beat up. I cannot do more reps than I’m already doing…So what is this that’s getting to me! I will just have to go figure.

This is what I did in the gym the last two days:

Morning Session: Back and Biceps

I promised myself two weeks ago that I will treat myself with a cappuccino my all time favorite but I never did. So I bought the decaf nescafe cappuccino but I don’t know this cup isn’t even like a treat for it doesn’t taste as expected.

This weekend is a hectic one working wise. Must be at work tomorrow at 5:30 to pick up a group at the hotel to take them to the lodge for birdwatching. Then we havena group to take on a mountain bike trail. I will be the photographer and guide tomorrow in the back up vehicle. I’m thinking about joining in on the short route on Sunday. Will still see how I feel.

What are you up to this weekend? Hope you stay motivated and let this be a cheat free one.
P.S The moment I get time I will take 4 week progress photos and will upload them thereafter!

God speed,

Claudine

Journal day 29: 15 September 2011

Ok so it was measurement day and I am happy about my results

I did not go to the gym this morning but went this afternoon for some Cardio and to work in my Shoulder/Abs workout.

Things didn’t quite turned out the way as planned. First of all it was very rushed for the zumba started at 16:15 and I worked until 16:00.

The first NO NO, was when I forgot to drink my mid-afternoon Diet fuel shake! I was to rushed and decided to have a apple on my way to gym, that also didn’t happen!

Got to the gym and had an awesome Zumba session – but I must admit I overdid it today. After 789kcal calories burned later I was exhausted. But as you know this “give it my all” attitude I decided to go and do my Shoulder and Abs session that I missed this morning.

Well two exercises or so later I started feeling very dizzy and not ready to go further. I told my sis we must rather go and give it another go today. I was glad I made that decision for you must always listen to your body.

This is a RULE FOR ME!

This was my day supplement and diet wise:

Wake up: 2 x Phedra Cut Ultra XT

This was overall a good day except for the part where we got a call out for fires at and around our lodge. The fires was caused by lighting and it was terrible…We just prayed for rain and at the end the wind turned and our farm did not burn. Thank goodness for that, I just feel really bad for all the other farmers who’s farms burned…

Have you started with with making lifestyle changes? Even though you don’t do the challenge start making changes somewhere.

Have a super evening all…
