17th SEPT 2014: It’s been 1 year today!

17 Sep

Exactly 1 year ago today, I decided that I finally had the extra energy to start working on getting back to my old shape that I used to have before I got pregnant. It has not been easy, but it has been worth it. I’m a happier person, I have more energy at work and at home – and having more success and fun training and competing. Thanks to everyone who helped me/supported me/listened. I’m only doing this for myself – trying to enjoy life every single day!

Here’s my story in pics

Going from 75+ kg BW to -63 kg – what did I change?

I skipped junk food and candy, got a coach to program CrossFit with much more endurance and WODs + skills fitted for me, started training gymnastics for CrossFit, kept the weights heavy while lifting, started sleeping more, eating more meals, and making healthier meal choices.

Now, I’m back in my old shape and have actually been it since Christmas 2013. I really prefer this version of me.

It’s taken a while to change, adjust and learn to live with, but it’s worth it and a part of getting a child, joggling a career and family etc at least for me – and quite a lot of other women, I guess!
