How I lost 15.6kg / 34.4lb in only 12 weeks – My #F2FChallenge journey

I struggled a bit with the title of this post. I had a few options: ‘How I finally lost my pregnancy weight’. My little girl is almost 4… about time, hey?   ‘I won the #F2FChallenge’. YES! I won! But I don’t really like this one, because I think every single girl who took part in this challenge is a winner.   ‘How I got ‘me’ back… a weight loss journey’. Not a bad one, but I needed the title to make you sit up and listen. A New Weigh deserves the attention.   ‘How I lost 15kg / 34lb by eating pizza’. Yes, you read that correctly… pizza! The A New Weigh approved ‘pizza’ was my go-to meal during this challenge and it’s damn good. Guess what I’m having for supper tonight??   The A New Weigh Fat 2 Fit Challenge is a weight-loss and fitness challenge that provides you with an eating plan, an exercise plan and amazing support. The eating plan works for me 100%. I get to eat a variety of foods and I really like that. I have tried many other eating plans, but I could never stick to it. I like that I get to eat protein, starch and fruit & veg. You even get the opportunity to occasionally have some dessert. I have a terrible sweet tooth, but I didn’t have dessert once during this challenge. I just didn’t feel like it and that is because I ate good food and I felt satisfied. Clean eating for the win! The exercise plan is especially handy if you don’t already exercise. It is...

#F2FChallenge: Month 1 = RESULT!

I don’t really have much to say here as I think that my results says it all. I am SO happy that I have finally found a program that works for me. I am eating good, clean, healthy food and I feel satisfied and my cravings are under control. Of course I would love some chocolate (I haven’t gone mad), but I haven’t had the urge to devour a whole slab. What I love about this eating plan is that I don’t feel deprived. I get to eat protein, starch, fruit and veg. And don’t think that because I’m eating ‘clean’ that I don’t get to eat good food. My favourite A New Weigh meal is the #ANW approved pizza. Damn good! I’ve wanted to take a pic to put on Instagram, but it hasn’t stayed on my plate long enough. It’s that good! I feel lighter, I look slimmer and I am enjoying exercise more and more each day. This isn’t just a diet, this is a new way of living. I feel great!! Thank you so much Gaelyn and A New Weigh. I’m looking forward to the next 2 months of this challenge. And for the first time in a very long time, I’m looking forward to summer....

Music for walkers

Firstly, let me just apologise to any Walking Dead fans landing on this post. I am just as excited for the next season as you are! Or perhaps zombie is not the first word that comes to mind when you hear ‘walkers’. Just me? Okay… By ‘walker’ I mean not-a-jogger. I think it may be time for me to make peace with the fact that I may never be a jogger. I’ve tried over and over again, but my back just doesn’t want me to. Some days are better than others, but I am not going to beat myself up about it anymore. I did two 5km walks over the weekend and it was awesome. Here are a couple of tunes that I have on my playlist that really gets me going: The last two may not make a lot of sense, but I love them. And they work nicely on a steep hill....

#F2FChallenge: Week 1 = RESULT

Finally a program that works for me!! Why do I say this? Well look at my results… after just one week: The A New Weigh eating plan and exercise program is amazing. I get to eat a balanced diet and I have come to realise that balanced is what my body needs. I find it much easier to maintain and a lot easier to fit into my lifestyle, and that of my family. And hey, I get to eat carbs. The exercise program is challenging and fun. The F2F Challengers are also an amazing group of women. The support from this group is invaluable. I feel great! Really. I am so excited for the next 11 weeks. NOTHING is going to stop me! The next update will be at the end of the 1st month. Watch this space!!...

Adventure Boot Camp… 3rd camp done and dusted

This morning was the last session of my 3rd ABC camp. I’ve posted about ABC before HERE. You know what’s weird… I was sad. I am doing the next camp as well, but we have a week-long break in between. Who the hell is sad about a week off?  If you have done ABC and are part of an amazing group like I am, you would be too. I have completely fallen in love with ABC. Yes, I moan and groan about all the running, and it hasn’t always been fun getting up to be at camp at 5:30, but it is all so worth it. I haven’t really lost weight (own fault – no amount of exercise is going to help if I still eat the wrong foods and copious amounts of it), but I am stronger and fitter and I feel great! My trainer and group is amazing. The support, laughs and the experience of sharing our journeys have made ABC a winner in my books. I wouldn’t have made it this far without these wonderful women! Thank you to ABC for giving me the opportunity to train and work towards a healthier and fitter me. Next camp starts on 22 September and I highly recommend that you sign up… you won’t be sorry!! xoxo   Disclaimer: This camp was sponsored by ABC, but it has in no way altered my view of this exercise...
