iCiNG Transformation Challenge — Announcement!

I wanted to let you all know about something I’m planning to kick off soon. It’s called the iCiNG Transformation Challenge, it will run for a month & it revolves around us taking control of our lives & our bodies in a concentrated way! It’s like weekly resolutions but amped up in a way that would make even Victoria Beckham exclaim, “MAJOR!”.

The iCiNG Transformation Challenge (iTC) will run from the 21st of April to the 18th of May. It would probably make more sense for it to start at the beginning of a calendar month, but that’s so far away & I am impatient!

I recently decided I wanted to commit to a month of really looking after my body, to see what kind of results I could get. I often find it hard to stick to an exercise routine, just because it feels really aimless & sometimes the thought of exercising every couple of days until the end of my life freaks me out! By giving myself a task that lasts for a month, I find that much less of a mental hurdle & far easier for me to grasp. The idea is that I will realise how great I feel when I put effort into my physical well-being, & will want to keep it up.

The reason I’m announcing it is because I also thought that if we commit to this & do it as a group, we’ll all feel like we have lots of support & love helping us achieve our goals!

My iCiNG Transformation Challenge: I’m going to exercise every day, & I’m also going to eat 100% raw!

Both of those things are quite scary to me, which is a good sign, I think! I am going to stock up on lovely fresh fruit & vegetables, & armed with what I learned from Karen Knowler, I think I will be unstoppable!

In terms of exercise, I’ve bought some DVDs which are on their way, namely a Jari Love three-pack [Get Ripped!, Get Ripped! Ripped to the Core & Get Ripped! Slim & Lean — man, those titles are a gigglefest!], Shape Bikini Body Camp Transforming Workout & Jeanette Jenkins’ The Hollywood Trainer 21 Day Total Body Circuit. All of them get quite good reviews so I’m really excited to see how they turn out. I’m also going to do yoga, spinning, weights, swimming, go on long walks & dance in my living room. I read Shape Up Like A Spice Girl the other day & it occurred to me that the reason I normally get so bored by “exercising” is that I always do the same thing. By mixing it up I hope to keep my interest level high!

So, consider this your official invitation to join me in my transformation quest! I wanted to give you all a bit of notice so that if you want to take part, you have time to prepare yourself. Now, you don’t have to do it the way I am — your transformation challenge might be about quitting smoking, cutting down on your meat consumption, meditating regularly or just walking up the stairs instead of taking the elevator. But ideally it will be something that you work towards a little bit every day.

Only you know the changes you need to make, so if you want to jump on board, use this time to brainstorm what you’d like to achieve & how you’re going to go about it. I can tell you right off the bat that I’m going to use a whole lot of EFT to get over the mental hurdles I have about regular exercise & going 100% raw! Comment here about where you’re heading & what your goals are likely to be, & I’ll see if I can write articles to help!

The iCiNG Transformation Challenge starts in a little over a week & a half — ample time to buy DVDs, stock up on healthy food, purchase exercise equipment, join a gym, find a yoga class, or whatever else you need to do to get prepared & pumped!

I’ll be giving regular updates on how I’m doing, as well as writing up lots of tips & tricks to help us get to where we want!

Are you with me, baby?!
