Full Disclosure: My Body After 2 Weeks Holiday (Eeek!)

I don’t know about you, but I’m sometimes amazed at how easy it can be to undo months of hard work and effort. 3 weeks ago I measured in happily at 13.6%. Not quite as lean as my December 10.9%, but not bad considering my key focus right now is gaining muscle rather than getting leaner.


(If you care about details, that’s my Biosig report). Measurements aside, and most importantly I felt good. Lean, strong, and in control. I love feeling of being in control, don’t you?

I don’t have too many photos of myself from the past 6 months actually, but here is one from maybe 6 weeks ago (I’m showing you this for comparison sake for when you see the damage just below).

But that feeling you get after 2 weeks of over-eating, not sleeping enough, taking 7 planes back and forth around the world, and training like your average gym member rather than seriously smashing it out? (Yes exactly that feeling ;)). That I don’t love so much.

I’m talking about feeling bloated, stuffed and out of control. And I know you’ve been there at least once in our life, so I know you’ll agree it’s not so fun.

So. I am now going to do something I have NEVER done before on any of my blogs. I’m going to show you pics of me in my underwear, as taken last night after 30+ hours straight travel and, as mentioned, after 2 weeks well off my A-game.

And then I’m going to tell you what I’ll be doing about.

You can follow my journey if you like – I’m setting myself a 4-week challenge of serious clean eating, supported detoxification, value-based living, and hardcore training. And I’m going to document it all as I go. What I’d love even more? If you’d join me by setting yourself some kind of (at least mildly scary) challenge for the next 4 weeks. Let’s do it together!

But for now, without further ado, my pics:

My husband had passed out on the couch hence the poor image quality, but I wanted to have official ‘day one’ photos for this challenge!

Over the next 4 weeks, you can expect an increase in posts from me as I share my journey with you. I want to give you as many details as I can on what I do to whip myself into supreme shape, so I hope you’ll forgive me for that! I plan to make some of the posts video based just to save us all a little time and effort 🙂

I won’t be having my measurements taken again until Thursday next week, but my guess is that these photos show me at around 17%, so I’d say I’ve gone up 3-4% while away. And this is important for you to know: it’s not as though I was eating junk while in the US. In fact, I don’t even think it’s true that you can’t stay in shape while in the US (as many of us Aussies seem to think) – last year I traveled for 6 weeks and came back leaner!

No, these photos are not based on 2 weeks of carbing it up. The key things were that I simply ate WAY too much. Mainly protein and veg/salads etc but just serious quantity. Couple that with the fact that it’s restaurant food, I often went to bed stuffed-full, I drank wine every night, I was on and off planes and suffered major sleep loss, my training was hotel-gym based and I just didn’t put as much effort or time in, and yes (let’s be honest) I did sneak little mouthfuls of dessert or chocolate pretty much every day.

plan of attack!

This post has gone on long enough for a Friday morning, but stay tuned over the coming days as I share what I’m doing (and follow up photos). Part 1 of my challenge: I am now officially 18 hours into my 7-day Charles Poliquin nutritional cleanse. Whoo! This is something I’ve wanted to do since learning about it, but I’ve been breastfeeding (officially finished yesterday) and unable to try any of the protocols that work so well for my clients! So a big part of this challenge is me finally testing out all that I’ve been learning while pregnant and breastfeeding. I am seriously beyond excited about this!

Okay, that’s it from me, except to say this –

Remember –

Life is Now. Press Play!

– dreamer. wanderer. soul led creator. One who was born for MORE.

I’m creating my new course, Big $ollar Energy, for the one who always knew she is here for millions,

to make it. To impact them. To create. And to LEAD.

Big $ollar Energy

The Money & Expansion Course for the Soul-Led Wanderer Who KNOWS It’s Time to Go All in on HER,

and Let the Damn Receiving Take Care of Itself. The Way it Was Always Meant to Be.

Which means?

Identifying and releasing everything that gets to go, from the way you’re thinking you need to do shit now, to the purposeless bits of the push or biz that it just don’t need to be about, to the hidden junk in your psyche that gets to go.

>>> It’s not about the do. The push. The win. When who you are when you only go within naturally PLACES you at the top,

but of the right fucking mountain.

The one that was always YOURS.

And then you finally WENT there.

Here’s the thing, for us, about allowing an expanse of RECEIVING.

IT HAPPENS WHEN WE GO TO THE PLACE WHERE IT JUST IS.
And always was.

Class starts LIVE on Monday May 24, however early access + Big $ Energy vibes will open from Monday May 17 in our Telegram chat + join now bonuses are open already!
