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!

PS.

I’ve created a place. A revolution of sorts. A HUB OF BADASSERY.

A place for learning, training, strategy and getting sh*t done.

A place where women unite to act fast, think later, to do in a day what most do in a week, in a week what most do in a month, in a month what most do in a lifetime or not at all. It’s a place for driven, fast-thinking, creative and utterly utterly purpose-driven ‘do what it takes’ women entrepreneurs who know that in order to live the life they truly CRAVE they must be willing to press play NOW.

It’s my Rich Chick Mastermind, and right now I have re-opened the doors, just for a few days. You can come join us either month by month, or VIP your fine self and receive access (yes really!) to every course I’ve ever created. You’ll also receive thousands of dollars worth of bonuses, plus all my NEW live content either way. And to top it off? You’ll get to come meet all the other driven badasses who are out there changing the world. Falling in to who they always WERE,

and who they know they must be.

Come join us gorgeous. Say yes to the life you really want. Say yes to doing what it takes. Say yes to falling into YOU, and being damn proud of it. Say yes to no fucks given that it is ‘supposed’ to be such and such way. YOU KNOW HOW IT’S MEANT TO FEEL FOR YOU.

And you know that that is the way.

Come see what I made you,
