Priča Tare Swinfield o njenom putu i borbi sa kilogramima

Priča Tara Swinfield iz Sydneya obojana je brojnim dijetama, prejedanjima i jo-jo efektima mršavljenja.

Sve je započelo prije deset godina, kada je mlada plesačica iz Australije došla na audiciju za rad na kruzeru. Rekli su joj da je najbolja plesačica, ali da ima previše kilograma i da je ne mogu primiti u tim okolnostima.

To je bila prijelomna točka u mojem životu. Tada sam odlučila izgubiti kilograme jer nisam željela da me moja težina spriječi u ostvarivanju plesnih ciljeva, priznala je Tara za Popsugar.

Izbacila je sve ugljikohidrate iz prehrane i krenula u teretanu. Rezultati su se počeli primijećivati nakon nekoliko mjeseci, a ubrzo je potpisala i prvi ugovor za plesanje.

Transformation Tuesday 🌸 || As I start on a new journey I look back to see how far I’ve come. It has been one hell of a roller coaster this life of mine. I’ve had so many amazing moments and I’ve had to overcome a lot of challenges. I was overweight, self conscious and hid behind a facade. I wouldn’t be myself in fear of people not liking me for me. I’ve been underweight, bulimic, struggled with body dysmorphia, been told to lose weight for work, been put on a weight restriction and monitored. I’ve had 4 knee surgeries the most recent being not quite six months ago. 🖤 I am forever grateful for finding @kayla_itsines instagram page all those years ago when I was living in China. The decision I made to start her program has been life changing and since then I have built such a passion for all things health and fitness. For 2.5 years I have been doing BBG or one of the @sweat programs and I’ve honestly turned my life around. I gave up smoking, I’ve cut down on the drinking. I’ve proven to myself that discipline and dedication pay off. I’m so proud of myself for deciding to make the change. I’m so much happier, healthier and stronger than I’ve ever been. 09/11/2015 - the day I changed my life 🌸 #transformationtuesday . . #f45 #f45training #functionaltraining #f45challenge #bbg #bbgcommunity #bbgfam #bbgprogress #PWR #kelseywells #sweat #pwrbykelsey #100strong #resistance #100strongchallenge #bikinibody #bbgfamily #fatloss #inspo #influencer #kaylasarmy #fit #fitfam #fitspo #fitness #strongnotskinny #anytimefitness #screwthescale #myprotein

Oko 2009. godine ponovo se željela prijaviti za rad na kruzeru. Iako je nosila konfekcijski broj 38, bila je tjerana da “živi na salatama i malo mesa” kako bi skinula još nekoliko kilograma jer su joj rekli da je predebela.

Nisam mogla podnijeti pritisak i činjenicu da sam bila pod stalnim nadzorom. Počela sam razvijati nezdrave navike. Poskrivećki sam kupovala čokoladu i slatkiše i jela ih sve dok mi se nije počelo povraćati.

U ogledalu je vidjela osobu koja je bila pet puta veća nego što je zapravo bila, a zbog disformičnog tjelesnog poremećaja uzela je stanku od plesa i rigoroznog načina života.

Plesu se vratila nekoliko godina kasnije, no ozlijedila je koljeno zbog čega čak 18 mjeseci nije mogla vježbati onako kako je željela. Kilogrami su se vratili, a s njima i brojne nesigurnosti.

Da se vrati u formu počela je slijediti Bikini Body Guide trenerice Kayle Itsines koji se temelji na specijalnom fitness tretmanu što se provodi tri puta tjedno po 28 minuta. Dakako on uključuje i zdraviju prehranu temeljenu na bjelančevinama, povrću i zdravim masnoćama. 
🌸 I LOVE MY BODY BECAUSE... 🌸 ... it has weathered many a storm! I love my body because no matter what I threw at it or what obstacles it has had to face, it has survived. I love my body because it has faced several challenges yet still continues to thrive. #ilovemybodybecause I'm HAPPIER, HEALTHIER, FITTER and STRONGER than I've ever been. I love my body because it is uniquely mine. I love my body because it is imperfectly perfect. I love my body because for the first time in my entire life I am completely comfortable in my own skin!!!! 🌸 Thank you @gofitjo for creating this empowering hashtag ♥️ #bbg #bbgcommunity #bbgfam #bbg2017 #bbgprogress #bbgaustralia #bbgsisters #bbgbabes #bbgladies #bbggirls #bbgover30 #bikinibodyguide #bikinibody #bbgstronger #bbgfamily#sweatwithkayla #kaylasarmy #kaylaitsines #fit #fitfam #fitspo #fitness #fitchick #fitties #thekaylamovement #strongnotskinny #iifym #gymjunkie #screwthescale

Ova filozofija prehrane pomogla joj je da dođe do svoje idealne kilaže od 71 kilograma, ali i da promijeni način razmišljanja.

Trebalo mi je dugo vremena da shvatim da radim nezdrave stvari svojem tijelu. Ponosna sam što sam bila dovoljno jaka da prođem sve to, da počnem trenirati i jesti zdravo.

Tara je danas zadovoljna svojim tijelom, a neprestano nalazi načine kako da poboljša svoju prehranu. U njenom hladnjaku trenutno se uglavnom nalaze cjelovite namirnice poput jaja, voća i povrća koji ju tjeraju da češće kuha.

Ne odriče se čak ni slatkih zalogaja poput palačinki, no priprema ih s dodatkom proteinskog praha.

🍎 FRIDGE GOALS 🍎 || The last few months I have definitely been eating for convenience. I’ve ordered from different food companies purely to save time and to ensure I wasn’t spending a small fortune eating on the run 🏃🏻‍♀️ and whilst it was a great option and definitely convenient, it wasn’t necessarily the most nutritious option. This week I started the @f45_training #8weekchallenge and one of my goals is to make a concerted effort to cook more. Whilst I can’t follow the meal plan to a T, I’m trying to find specific meals from the plan that I can make for the whole week. I’m keeping it simple and going back to basics. Stocked the fridge full of fruit and veges #EATTHERAINBOW 🌈 ready for the week ahead... I’m thinking stir fry 🥢 - Another focus for me has been working on my gut health. A friend recommended that I start taking a probiotic to help with my skin and bloating so I’m doing the gut health double whammy with a probiotic and @remedykombucha 🤜🏼🤛🏼 #fridgegoals #remedyyafridge . . #f45 #f45training #functionaltraining #f45challenge #bbg #bbgcommunity #bbgfam #bbgprogress #PWR #kelseywells #sweat #pwrbykelsey #100strong #resistance #100strongchallenge #bikinibody #bbgfamily #fatloss #inspo #influencer #fit #fitfam #fitspo #fitness #strongnotskinny #screwthescale
