Today we chat to Carike Smit who placed 3rd in the Women’s Transformation Category of our Summer 2020 Sleekgeek 8-Week Transformation Challenge.

Give us a short history of your journey to health and fitness before the challenge.

I’m a diet queen and have tried every quick fix shake and pill on the market. I always lose a few kilos but gain them right back again. I led a very sedentary lifestyle before the challenge. My favorite joke used to be if you see me running you should start running too cause something must be chasing me. I’m a busy mom with busy kids and a demanding job. I didn’t have time for exercise or fixing healthy meals. 

What prompted you to join the Sleekgeek 8-Week Challenge?

I have been a member of SG for a long time and I know a few people who have had excellent results doing the challenges. During lockdown, while stuck at home my suddenly inactive kids gained a bit of weight and I had to face the fact that I am setting a terrible example for them. I didn’t want my kids to get teased about their weight and always feel left out because they are the “fat kid” like I use to be at school. I decided to do SG reboot and then the challenge to force myself to focus on healthy eating and exercise – setting a good example for my kids. 

Give us a quick overview of the nutrition and eating plan that you followed during the challenge.

I read a lot of books on fasting – Gin Stephens Delay Don’t Deny and Fast. Feast. Repeat. also Jason Fung’s book – The Obesity Code and decided to do 16h fasts every day. I have had myself tested for diabetes so many times as it’s something that everyone in my family suffers from and because I have always thought that it must be part of my health issues because of my strange blood sugar spikes and headaches. For meals, I used The SG Reboot Food List and stayed away from processed carbs and sugars. No artificial sweeteners – absolutely no junk. I played around with my macros for a bit. The whole challenge was a massive learning curve. I researched everything and anything to try and understand what healthy eating habits truly are.  I also read every single document in the SG vault, I made notes of how my body responds to certain foods. What made me feel sluggish and what meals made me sleep well and jump out of bed the next morning – energetic and ready for a new day! 

Give us a quick overview of the training and exercise plan that you followed during the challenge.

I walked 5km every morning before work with either my kids or a friend. I kept track of my heart rate so walking has now become running and I still enjoy it. Starting slowly was a huge part of why I could carry on doing it every day. About 3 weeks into the challenge my kids swimming coach challenged me to get in the pool with them. I havent been in the pool for years!! I instantly fell in love. Now I swim at least three times a week. Three months ago I wouldnt even have entertained the idea. I did some pilates with my kids. We hiked on weekends.  From being completely sedentary to active and loving it in 8 weeks! I used my exercise time to bond with my kids away from screens and electronics. 

If you could give 3 pieces of advice to future challengers, what would they be?

  • Join an SG team!! The motivation and sense of community from the ladies in my group was priceless. I could never have done it without them. They push when you need it and have a sympathetic ear when you feel like you are failing. 
  • Read and experiment! Find what works for you and your body. I hated exercise my entire life, now I count the hours until I can get into the pool!
  • Don’t beat yourself up if you slip up and eat something you shouldn’t or don’t do your exercise like you know you should have. Tomorrow is a new day and you just have to show up and try again to be successful

Why should people enter the challenge?

Because it’s not another diet. It’s your own journey to healthy living. The info in the Vault is invaluable and the support from all the SG peeps is unlike anything I have ever experienced before.
