Please give us a short history of your journey to health and fitness before the challenge.
During my pregnancy, I gained a little too much weight and I thought it would just magically disappear when the baby came. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Between having a newborn and settling into my new mom role, I knew I had to do something about my weight but did not have the time or energy to go to the gym.
What prompted you to join the Sleekgeek Transformation Challenge?
I came across the Sleekgeek Transformation Challenge on Facebook and thought “Well, I’ve got nothing to lose, except a few kgs! I liked the idea of training from home and the groups I could join for that extra motivation.
Give us a quick overview of the nutrition and eating plan that you followed during the challenge.
I followed the colored charts provided by Sleekgeek. Mostly ate from the Green chart and avoided the others as much as possible. I had a cheat meal weekly, just to make sure that I don’t fall off the wagon completely.
Give us a quick overview of the training and exercise plan that you followed during the challenge.
