Everybody knows Nomzamo Mbatha has a bangin’ bod! But it hasn’t always been on point. At varsity she had a bad case of first-year spread. The food in my res was terrible. So to change the taste I’d add mayo and tomato sauce, recalls Nomzamo. Lunches weren’t any better I’d have fried chips and a pie and alternate this with peanut butter and jam sandwiches. My friends and I were regulars at pizza and burger joints. It was an all-round mess, she says.
A tag on social media did what a look in the mirror couldn’t. Nomzamo saw that her clothes weren’t fitting as well as they used to. A change was needed. First, she zeroed in on her diet. I cut down on red meat, dairy, carbs and sugar. I quit takeaways, she says. To speed up the loss, she’d walk to and from gym. We’re talking 20km! I loved discovering new muscles! Every session there was a different stiffness, but I knew with every visit I was a step closer to where I wanted to be, she says. Now Nomzamo’s adding Pilates to her repertoire to help tone her body.
I always encourage women who have a problem with their mid-area to give Pilates a try. Plus, it’s great to release your mind for an hour and just let go. Having a goal has helped Nomzamo tone in ways she’s never seen before. I’ve been able to make it to the gym even on lazy days because I have my dream body in mind – I’m starting to see results from just changing my mindset.
