6 week Transformation Challenge starts TODAY 18th June 2012
Hello there, this is me after 4 babies and what seems like a very long journey being pregnant and breastfeeding over these past 6 years!!! I am slowly learning and adapting to my new "clean eating" lifestyle and no, this is not a diet or something I do once in a blue moon. This is now my life! And I love it!!!!
Height: 178cm ~ 5'10"
Weight: 65kgs ~ 144lbs
Hips: 98cm ~ 38"
Waist: 80cam ~ 31"
Body Fat: 22%
- Be consistent and workout 4 times per week
- Eat clean 90% of the time
- Do a 2 week sugar free challenge
- Support and connect with my buddies in various social networks
- Tone and strengthen my muscles
- Lose the fluffy look (hence taking the picture under this particular light
Fruit salad porridge with a pecan and strawberry topping
Below pic is the stove top cooked porridge which I added an entire can of fruit salad (juices and all, without any added sugar of course! Fruit is super sweet and has it's own al natural sugar).
I added cinnamon, vanilla essence and some chia seeds with splashes of milk as it was thickening.
Cottage cheese with kiwi fruit
I'll update you with more on a later post and collate more of my pre and post body pictures. I know there may be some of you that think that I already look great and yes I will agree. I just wanted to share with you that I did tip the scales, over 90kgs ~ 200lbs mind you! and have worked ever since to never do that again!!! My body fat was nearly 40% which is nearly half my body mass. How unhealthy is that?
Just because I am nearly 6' and my fat is elogated ;-) I have the same body composition as someone that is 5' it's just that they are more compact and look a bit more obvious. So please know, I struggled to lose this weight regardless of how tall I look!!!!
What are some of your hurdles as you maintain your body shape or what are you doing to reach your ultimate happy body state?
Until we meet again, hope you're having a magical Monday!!!! XxDani
