Lindsay Combrink – 38kg Lighter

My journey has been a long and forever challenging one. I started off in 2009 at 105kg. I was lazy, had no motivation to do any sort of physical activity whatsoever and was less than content with my mediocre life. A few family members used to try help me to start losing weight but I never really listened. I didn’t want to be told how I should be. Then in 2009, I realised that I was disgusted with myself.

I couldn’t wear jeans without a huge muffin top, I was always trying to hide myself under all these clothes and still felt terrible. I decided to make a change in my life and began training at Virgin Active. Slowly my weight began to drop and I managed to get myself down to about 85kg with a little bit of cardio and eating healthier. I maintained this for about 2 years and was relatively happy with myself. It was a huge change but I had never really managed to build any form of muscle.

Then the training bug really bit me. I found a training program on bodybuilding.com by Jamie Eason and went into it full swing. She combined weight training with cardio and clean eating. I lost 12kg on this 12 week program and gained strength and a bit of muscle. I then continued to train in this manner but began cheating with my eating a lot more and slowly the scale crept up again. I was still training super hard, was fit and eating “relatively” clean but at like 50% clean with drinking in between I crept back up to 82kg. In October 2013 my boyfriend and I moved in together and I decided that this was the perfect opportunity. No more excuses! I could now have my own routine, my own kitchen (no more using my mom’s cooking or junk in the house as an excuse) and I could now have it my way and not just go with the flow.

I decided to start the Jamie Eason 12 Week Program again and managed to get down to 74kg. I felt like I was so close and pretty much at my goal, but one thing I had set out to do was to stay under 70kg and to try and build myself some abs! I was so close that when Elan posted about the Sleekgeek 8 Week Winter Challenge I just couldn’t resist and entered the first heat. This was the motivation I needed to get me to my goals. I entered and managed to lose another 6.6kg (and LOADS of cm’s).

Now, I’ve leaned out even more and plan to continue this trend. I feel like I am finally reaching my full potential, competing in MTB races, obstacle courses and mini triathlons and coming in with the top female finishers. I never dreamed I could one day try to win one of these races and that’s where my goals are now headed. I want to win races, compete and be the best version of myself.

Just a breakdown of my daily meals (Proof that you DON’T need to starve yourself to get lean).

7am – Smoothie (40g oats, serving whey, tsp cocoa, sweetener, an apple, lots of ice and water).

10am – 5 egg whites / 40g oats

1pm – 6oz (170 grams) chicken, 100g sweet potato and lots of salad.

I don’t train at a specific time every day but generally after lunch for about 1 ½ hours.

4.30pm – Same breakfast smoothie with an egg white added

7pm – 6oz chicken and lots of salad (sometimes with a little avo)

10pm – I have a Mug Cake (1 serving whey, cocoa, egg white, FF milk and 10 almonds made into a chocolate cake in the microwave).

I’m all for convenience so this is pretty much a daily thing, I might substitute the chicken for another protein (lean steak, fish).

Weight training to me is the most important. I know cardio helps aid in fat loss and fitness but it is so important to add weights to your routine to get that lean, toned look that I strive for. I focus on two specific muscle groups each session (generally Back/Biceps, Chest/Triceps, Legs/Calves and Shoulder/Abs) I do legs twice a week and train 6 days a week. Always do weights first followed by 30 minutes of cardio 4x a week. I also think it’s important to get outside and do things like trail runs, mountain biking and races. I love the gym but these things add a whole new element to getting fit.

For me the journey never ends, I know I will never been one of those people who “can eat whatever she likes” and stay lean or thin. I have to work for it every single day and I think it’s 100% worth it because, at the end of the day, I can be proud of achieving the physique that I work so hard for and have a sense of accomplishing something I never thought imaginable.

I hope I can inspire just one other person out there like me, because it’s never impossible to be the best possible version of yourself, all you have to do is try.Picture-291
