DOUBLE BOOTCAMP SSS SESSION

Sat morning was a double bootcamp session 2 hours of hoffy and we were done and dusted. The first hour we spent on the sand boxing and then we hit alcohol hill.  This hill is that steep you cant see the bottom from the top.  As a group we had a rope which we had to keep of the ground otherwise burpees would have called. I made a little video clip up of myself and my 12wbt buddies that i train with.  I am just loving watching all these girls shrink before my eyes.

KAKODA CHALLENGE MELBOURNE TRAINING

This morning i feel from the effort of yesterdays training. On the 28th of October a group of 4 of us our participating in the 30ks kakoda Challenge Over Mount Dandenong, So yesterday we did our first big training session or it.  We did 20ks of the 30k walk. During the challenge they give you  9 hours to compete the challenge and yesterday our fantastic team completed 20ks in just under 5 hours. Got to be happy with that.   Leg burn like i have never felt leg burn before. The hills were a killer but the weather was kind and this morning my legs are definately letting me now they are alive and didnt agree with the torture i pervailed on them yesterday.

But in the Kakoda spirit the 4 of us completed our mission for the day. I bit confused though lol helen and I wore our polars and she burnt 500 cal more than I what is that. All in all a great day with great friends.

HOW I LOST 62 KGS
Obese since her early twenties, Heidi Wilson's motivation to lose 62 kg came in the form of a tiny person: her grandson Cooper.


Heidi Wilson's dramatic weight loss
Name: HEIDI WILSON Age: 42 years old Works at: Yarra Rangers Council
My life before weight loss

I am happily married, have three children and one grandson. I had been obese since having my three children in my late teens - early 20's. I put on at least 20 kg with each pregnancy and never really lost it.

Rond 2 2012 Finale Pics Had a Ball

Last weekend i ventured over to perth for Round 2 Finale and had an absolute ball.  Its a chance for us all to get glamed up and treat ourselves after all the hard work we have put in over the 12 weeks.  First id like to thank Tania de Rossi for organising the group hair and makeup even on Saturday Afternoon it was great sitting there drinking champaign and catching up with other 12weekers.  Then back to my hotel with my lovely daughter to get frocked up and of we go. From there its history. Danced and drank the night away. Presentation was one of the proudest moments of my life.  My daughter baby tough mudder not only won by changing her life this round but she took out the overall transformation title. My husband and i stood there crying a moment i will never forget. ( actually brings tears to my eyes everytime i think of it) You just have to watch the video below and you will know what i mean





Round two goal achieved and proud as punch

Proud as punch ive said this before but just had to say it again. After such an awesome round 1 2012 i sat and reflected my first two rounds and t thought to myself how the hell am i going to back up that round. I decided round 2 2012 was not about me it was time to pay it forward. It wasnt about my fitness or my own journey but about being the best mother i could be. I had somethings from the past i had to repair.

So my goal for round 2 was to help my daughter on her 12wbt journey so she could feel as good as I do. Today I can say I have never been more proud of anything like i am of my daughter leashy baby tough mudder and what she has achieved. When i dedicated myself for 12 weeks in round one i didnt realise what was about to happen. Ive achieved amazing results but nothing as good as watching my daughter on saturday night on stage and also over the last 12 weeks watching her vanish before my eyes. But grow in so many ways. Im so proud as a mother of her determinations and self be…

Saturdays Round 2 Finale i discovered i have got so much more out of 12wbt than just weight loss

When we all start 12wbt we do it usually with one thing in mind and that is to shed those kg's and to fit into those size 10 or 12 jeans. But you know what on Saturday night i realised there is way more to 12wbt than just strippig back the layers of flab and producing the best version of yourself. I have lost my kg but gained so much more. I realised that 12wbt isnt just a diet it is a program that produces a tonne of support and brings people together from all walks of life in all different stages of their own journey and makes life long friends..During round 2 this year i became forum firends with two very special and inspiring people #imajica#Leitchy i had never met these two people before only on the forums. We chatted and supported each other throughout the 12 weeks both on the forums and private message.. We were all on our own journey and all quite different journeys. But all with the same main goals. On friday night the perth grew put together a pre finale get together at …
