Day 1 of the Feb13 iTransform Challenge!!! All the best to each and every one of you.
I am so sore today. I cant wait to finish this first month so that i will be fitter and be able to handle more.
Keep up the hard work, Dominique. The first weeks are definitely the toughest... it gets easier with time and you will be amazed with the results. All the best for test day today everyone!
I cannot believe week one is gone.
I am sore all over, but I am really so proud of myself :)
Have a great weekend ladies
Well Monday is here, am not so sure anymore
I'm so excited to get back this week. I keep checking to see if it is time to go get. I'm itching to feel the burn again.
Awesome guys!!! Keep up the hard work - it certainly will be worth it in the end. I have emailed you Words of Inspirational from the iTransform Challemge 2012 winner, Debra Burton. Hope that helps to keep your eyes on the prize - R10 000 and an awesome, lean, fit and healthy bod!
Feeling great so far, already lost 1.5kg's in the first week! This has really motivated me to stay focused. I think week 2 will be a lot easier than last week :)
Well done Gailene!!!! Keep up the GREAT work ladies :-)
I feel so great!!!! Loving the bootcamp!!!! Whoop whoop!
So fellow challengers, who is going to do the Warrior Race??
I am def going to be there!!! Be in contact soon re details :-)
Killer class by Justin this morning @ Sunninhill Gardens - only 2 of us and Justin - but we made it count!
Great stuff, Angelique! You definitely have an advantage over those who missed this morning's session! KEEP IT UP!
Here we are the end of #Week3. And what an amazing week its been indeed. I think its fair to say that this week was cardio cardio cardio!!! But wow I feel good. Pushing my body and seeing that I can do more push ups, run faster and even chat to my buddy when doing that last run to the wall and back @Lezel LOL.
Our morning sessions in #Stunninghill are just the best. The amount of energy we leave with sustain me through the day is such a added bonus. Come join us in the morning just to try it out.
Was able to catch up with the ladies and Teacher RU in the afternoon this week. And its has just reminded me what a great sense of comradery we have in Sunninghill.
All the best for #Week4 ladies. Lets do this!!!
Feeling absolutley fab, the last three weeks have been a lot of hard work but i can see the results, 3.3kg in total lost already and i just so happy. My stomach has never looked this flat.
The challange though has been food, i have managed to kick the rice and occasional pap in the evening and concentrate on salad and chicken or grilled beef or something. I am though having a bit of a sugar craving setting in, i found these fab dieting chocs at Dischem, cant remember what they called will post the name soon.
Cant wait till next for mid tests hope to drop a further 2kg by then.
Camp 1 of the challenge done and "sweated"! Loving the early mornings, the meals, the encouragement and the company!
According to the scale - 2kg's down and clothes feeling looser - still lots to go though! Looking forward to the midway body testing to verify progress.
Camp 2 ... I'm ready :)
I feel good tananana!!!!! Loving the bootcamp, loosing weight! yes. This challenge means much more for me as i want to be more active, i stopped smoking 4 weeks ago, i can breath, run longer and quicker, i am so proud of me!!!!!!
Happy easter holidays ladys and keep training.
We can meet for long walks or SMALL runs once a week????
I cant believe 4 weeks has gone already!!, I am so glad test day has come and gone becuase i dont relax on the thursdays when we test, the run keeps me awake the whole night before. This time though it wasnt too bad, the steps at NC primary are a killer but hey my asthmatic lungs held on and i even managed a little sprint at the end. I actually saw myself as a mini "Husain Bolt" and i just thought legs, lungs bolt for me now!!! hahaha!!
So far 4,6 kg lost and i am just so greatful to transformhers because i have never lost this much weight before. I havent felt this good about myself!
2.1kg to go and will be breaking into the 70's and i cant remember when i was ever weighing anywhere in the 70's.
Oh yes ladies to satisfy that sweets cravings eat Slimmers chocs available at Dischem.
Enjoy easters !!
AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING!!!! Well Done Ladies!!!!!! Keep up the awesome work into your 2 week Easter break.
So camp 1 is done and dusted and what a fantastic 4 weeks it has been. I am feeling great and so energized. The weight is coming down nicely and I am extremely proud of my discipline during this challenge.
It was however a sad test day last week as I had to say good bye to my Edenvale trainer Sibi. She really has been an inspiration to me. Every training session was filled with laughter and we always had such great fun. She was also extremely encouraging in helping me to achieve my goals in this challenge. Thank you Sibi for your amazing spirit and friendship, I am going to miss you. I wish you all the best in your new adventures and every bit of success for the future.
1st day back at camp Lee tried to kill us, I am surprised that I am still alive :)
1st camp was horrible for me as I could not attend all sessions, so my measurements did not really make me happy.
I am back though for this camp, and I plan to make up for lost time.
Hope we all have the energy in this cold weather :)
Still have 7 weeks to go Nozipho! You CAN do this!!!
Don't know about everybody else but camp has really turned up the heat, the excercises are a lot tougher but loving them!!
Li is just fab her encourgement and motivation keeps me going stronger!!!
Hey people, I have started to notice to notice that my shoes a feeling bigger actually what I mean is that my feet seem smaller in my feet. My boots that I bought about a month ago are loose and my other shoes as well. Is it possible for a person to lose weight on their feet??
Anyway I am very happy with how my body is looking, my clothes are looser, i cant even wear my other jeans because they are literally falling off.
My thighs seem much more toned, my arms are better. My fitness has also improved, my running is not super fast but I can manage a few words with someone running along side me and for me that is a milestone!!
Thanks Li, you are the best, oh yes am I losing weight around my feet is it possible?
YAY Nthabiseng!!!!!! So happy to hear you are seeing and feeling the results of all your hard work. Yes, you can lose cm's in your feet and ankles - from all the cardio during your workouts and now that you are building muscle too, you will be burning energy even when you are not working out.
Keep it up!!! 4 weeks to go :-)
Nthabiseng, you are doing so well - CONGRATS on all your mini victories - looser clothes, firmer toned body, improved fitness, feeling good etc. With regards to your "smaller" feet, it is extremely possible that the regular high intensity exercise has increased your body's circulation and hence there is no longer water build up in your tissues - which usually accumulates around the ankles and feet. How awesome is that! Another compounding factor could be the colder weather as feet shrink slightly in cooler weather and expand in hotter weather, but I do not think that this reasoning can explain the reduced size of your feet single-handedly. Fab job - we cannot wait for the final Challenge results. Keep up the great work!
Yesterday was test day, I gave it my all especially on the run, in total I am very happy with my results especially with my push ups, my arms are really getting stronger.
Cant wait for the next camp!!
Camp 2 done and dusted!!
And what a hectic and intense camp it has been!! Darren has been extremely motivating and on those days when it felt like I couldn't anymore, he pushed me to keep going. Thanks Darren! Looking forward to the last 4 weeks!! WooHoo!!
I am also very happy with my test results yesterday, an overall improvement everywhere :)
I really am loving this challenge and seeing the results makes all the hard work so worthwhile. My body is getting toned and shapely - I need a whole new wardrobe because nothing fits anymore!! LOL!! All and all I am extremely happy :)
Enjoy the break ladies and GOOD LUCK for the last 4 weeks!
P.S. Has anyone else had a massive increase in their appetite? I have been insanely hungry lately, and I am eating all day - well 5 meals (all the good things of course) but my body just wants more. Is it because my metabolism has increased and my nutritional needs have changed?
You are not alone, I have also been feeling peckish lately, my worst is graving for a slice of white bread Low GI and nutella spread, OH i just love the taste, what i do though is make the slice and cut into 4 pieces and I share with my twin girls and son so in actual fact I end up eating only a quarter of the bread.
By the way does anyone know if couscous is good when trying to lose weight?
Well done Gailene! We are so proud of your determination and dedication and amazing results. We are also very glad to hear that Darren is motivating you to keep on going. Only 4 more weeks to go - can you believe it!
It is completely natural to feel hungrier when training hard. The colder weather also encourages some unhealthy habits (coffee + biscuits etc) so when peckish try reach for a banana, apple and low GI stuff.
Nthabiseng, cous cous is not particularly good for weight loss. It is a wheat product . Rather choose low GI alternatives such as barley, buckwheat, bulgar and quinoa.
Keep up the fab work ladies and we look forward to a fantastic May camp :)
Test day today and oh as usual dreading the run and oh those humangous steps anyway will try my best!
Nthabi - you demolished those steps!!! Well done ... Only once more you will have to do it and those steps will be a thing of the past...
Nthabi - We at camp are very proud of you. We all can see the difference and we all want you to succeed. We are 100% behind you... You go girl!!!!

Ja hey bootcamp has been hectic these past 3 days, wow I am feeling rather tender in a couple of places especially around my tummy area.
