My name is Rachel, I am 30 years old, from South Africa and this is my new adventure of find a new me... well the REALme :) This is the year of sexzzzy ... Sexzzzy EVERYTHING and its all coming my way :)

I have too long held onto the things that keep us fat and out of shape - the desire to "punish" myself by keeping me fat, or worse... making me fatter!
I'm OVER that. Im letting go of all that junk and hurt and the untruths i have taught myself to believe about myself... well I am in the process of doing that :)

I started my journey alot heavier than my ticker will tell you but I recently cleared all my "history out" and created a brand new starting point. The blog "Hit the reset baby" makes sense of this ramble :)

Member Since: 5/30/2010

Fitness Minutes: 12,570

My Goals:
* Get out of the Obese BMI range (77.5kg) - DONE 30 APRIL 2011
* Get out of the Overweight BMI range (64.6kg)
* Get down to 58kg
* Feel good in a bikini
* Feel "little" - I am short but not little :)

* Get to my goal of 58kg
* Graduate to red bib at UFO - DONE 13 MARCH 2012
*Take part in 5km race - skipped and went straight to 10! o_O
*Take part in 10km race - DONE 21 MARCH 2012
*Take part in a half marathon
*Decrease resting heart rate to super fit level – around 58 – 60 bpm now. I’d like to see 48-50 bpm
* Get lean – be able to see good muscle definition especially being able to see my ABS! My research leads me to believe that will be at around 15%
* Wear a itty bitty sexy dress
* Reconnect with misplaced friends that I have been ashamed to see since I have added a fair amount of "padding" to the me they knew :) - PROUD TO SAY I AM NAILING THIS ONE ALREADY (22 JAN 2012)

My Program:
-exercise 5-6 days a week doing a variety of things, which at the moment consists of 4-5 bootcamp classes a week, a personal training session and some running.
- eat clean and lowish carb - this works best for my body, figured out by trial & error
- drink more water - aiming for 8 glasses daily
- surround myself with inspiration :)

Personal Information:
I am a 30 year old energiser bunny from Johannesurg South Africa. I have many reasons for being here but mostly I want to be proud of myself - proud of how I look, what i feed my body, the strength and fitness I have and the fact that I can throw ANYTHING on in the morning and look HOT :)
Thats the finish line - being able to say I am proud of me for those reasons :)

    Hi Rachel

    Thanks for adding me. I emoticon you too.
    You live in an amazing location. I have always
    wanted to visit South Africa.

    I am happy we can help each other reach our goals.

    yes, i absolutely love crossfit. When I leave, everytime I have the "im pretty badass" feeling. i love it. I love how when your done with the first part 15 minutes and your dripping sweat and out of breath, and that was just the warmup. haha

    If anyone lets you know about a challenge to focus on, let me know too. I've been looking around for a good one to challenge myself with. If no one comes up with anything, maybe we could think of our own to start.

    So true!

    And thanks! I like to think I have things down =p it always seems like as soon as I have about a month of consistency I slip up a bit (IE - last few days! Argh!) But it could definitely be WAY worse and I know sometimes i'm harder on myself than I should be! We all have those times!

    I'm super excited to be putting together another nutrition blog though! I have had a bit of a crazy weekend so I haven't been able to take pics and track my food , but I'm going to try to tomorrow at least and get something nice and solid put together for you guys =] I feel like I always have SO many ideas for blog stuffs in my head and then when it comes to putting it all into a blog I go blank! Gotta work on that! hah! Thanks for your support though! =]
