BlueStorm's 2012 transformation. ( Food & training log )

Recommended Posts



My name is Christina and I need to change. Period.

For years I have been doing the research and after seeing Forks over knives and Food matters there was no way around it anymore.

My body is telling me to stop abusing it.

My mind wants to live on a healthier planet!

I was never one to go with a latest diet,... I did fell for the meat eating bodybuild belief.

But boy, does it make me tired.

I fell in love with Brendan Brazier's books, Ani Phyo's and I just recieved Vegan bodybuilding by Robert.

I do not want to be a skinny fat person, I want stong, sexy muscles and a healthy BF%.

So , that is what I am gonna do!

A mission, a clear goal.

I just started to become a Fyto- and Nutrition specialist and an extra course in Somatic psychology.

I just wrapped up doing the NLP practitioner and my mind is strong!

No more talk the talk ....walk the walk! #inspire others.


My biggest goals for now:

Lower BF%

No more back ache

More enegery (to study)

Be able to run 15 km

Feel confident again in my own skin

Go vegan completely

Rid my skin condition



Look forward to meeting you all!

I noticed today is hard.

I looked in the mirror and got a case of the "get there now -itis".

Why am I not SEEING results I ask myself.

I know it takes about 7 weeks of training and clean eating to SEE something.

What messes me up is I FEEL thinner on the inside since started this way of eating.

My body is not craving anything. My head is.

I want to feel comforted...it comes down to being scared.

No more false beliefs.

Sticking with this.

Sticking with me.

I am focussing on health.

I am beautifull any-way.

Remember that one of the side effects of clean eating is detoxing. And not only headaches, but fatigue also, is a sign of detox.

One way to help get over it faster is to flush it with more water by drinking water more than your NORMAL amount (and yes, you will be going to the bathroom to flush the toxins away!).


Another reason why I think it might be detox is because you said you don't feel like eating more. Sometimes the detoxing body doesn't want to deal with digesting food, and your body is telling you that.


Your body is also telling you to take it easy, by making you fatigue and actually making you take naps. it will be hard to detox and perhaps exercise to the amount you want to do.


This should only last about a month or so (depending on how much of a detox you have - toxins are stored in fat cells usually - so if you have a certain amount of fat cells, you might have a certain amount of toxins to release).

OK so week one of being absolutely vegan:

I lost 1, 8 kg ( 3.96 LBS)

But that is not most important.


Whether it is detox like another forum member pointed out or I need to monitor my food better ( which I think needs to be done) I noticed I am getting sick. My immune systym is down.

I am not alarmed.

My skin condition like I said is vanishing, I feel and am more happy... My skin is actually getting softer.

I saw a lot of vegans say they feel more connected and whole.

Well I feel scared on this journey ( but being in your stetch zone does that ...I'll be living this new lifestyle before you know it...) and excited at the same time.

The changes I feel in just a week are great!

I even saw Kathy Freston re-Tweeted me, that was pretty cool!

I do miss working out, I have not really been up to strength and even slept in the afternoon...I do not usually do that!

Again, it is my body re-adjusting.


This week I will be focussing on some more homework ( styding to be a nutrition and fyto specialist) and prepping for a big exam.


Thoughts are always welcome!

You may need to counteract the stress you are feeling with the studying and testing going on. It can wreak havoc on your immune system. Especially if you are detoxing your diet. If you feel tired, then power nap. I have to do that for my body because I put it thru so much. If it says to sleep, then I sleep. Seems only fair. I tell it to lift that heavy weight many times, and it listens and does it for me. So I reciprocate.

So ...I believe you attract what you think of and put out there.

I just saw the list of things that are given away and boy how I like it.

I just want to say I am really interested in books, I love to educate myself ( and then share)


So Ani Phyo and Mike Mahler's book look great! ( tried the contest but that did not work yet...)

Or talking to Channa Serenity would be great.

( I am already blessed with the AWESOME AlliB.)


Vega products are more hard to come by and extremely expensive due to shipping and handeling and that darn Robert got me to love them sending me a few samples, great as he his.


Who knows if the universe will pick this up....we'll see.


Either way, I truly mean it when I say I am already gaining so much health.

My guy is not there with me ....but I got 2 movie tips lined up for us to see.

In his own time and maybe not.

I really do not want to go back.

It's almost been 2 weeks..but why go back to feeling crappy when this feels happy?
