This weekend has been packed with mouth watering food 🤤
I’ve actually banged out some holiday 🎄shopping 🎁 as-well had to find a good way to bring the calories 🤪
How has your weekend been⁉️ Have you guys done anything fun or eat any good food 🍪🍩🧁🍰
Sorry for being so inactive lately.. I just wasn’t feeling like posting a lot so I didn’t. I’m back in my training routine and I love it!💪🏼But for me it’s really hard that it’s so dark all the time. Winter is just not my season...❄️🌃But I’m so happy and excited that I’ll be traveling for two moths at the end of January🌎. It’s been my biggest dream for a long time now💭. What is your biggest dream or goal? ✨
Mmk I just want to acknowledge that smirk real quick. Let me explain 🤓 long read, heads up 😅
In 6th grade out on the playground, we were playing lava monster after PE class. (I promise this is going somewhere 😂) All of my friends were all saying what they had weighed in at and they were all veryyyy small late bloomer girls. I, on the other hand, was an early bloomer who was almost 5’5” (my current height) and 100 something pounds. I was so embarrassed and that was the first time I wanted to be smaller.
Following that, for YEARS I wanted to be smaller and to appear smaller. I had an eating disorder for a few years and it still rears it’s head every once in awhile.
But something new happened this year... it happened during the Olympia. I was watching the bikini division and I didn’t have that sense of motivation and encouragement I had gotten in past years. And when I saw the top five, I thought “nope, not for me”. I messaged my coach and told him I really wanted to grow. I didn’t give a fuck about being small and petite and how a woman “should” be. I wanted to get fucking big.
Since then, I have been working my ass off. (Apart from being sick as a dog for a few weeks) And I can honestly say, I’ve NEVER been happier or felt more confident.
So, back to the smirk. That’s a damn proud smirk. That’s a smirk that acknowledges this road is no where near close to being over and acknowledges how far I’ve come. You don’t have to fit in with everyone else. You don’t have to be small like everyone else or do what they’re doing. Do what YOU want to do FOR YOU 🖤🖤🖤
❗️M U S T R E A D❗️
Earlier this week I suffered an awful pain in my shoulder. It felt like an elastic band through my head into my neck. When I felt underneath my top, I felt a raised bone under my skin in my shoulder. I went to the Doctor; who sent me to A&E.
➡️ Acouple of hours and X-rays revealed that I’d irritated my shoulder joint. The nurse asked if I knew what it could be, I told her I hadn’t a clue as. I explained how I used to be such a frequent gym goer and that it could be linked to that, but she in fact picked up on the fact that I said ‘USED TO’. She sat and made me explain why I’d stopped going and we spoke deeply about it, I was shocked by what I was told.
➡️I already knew that I had Hypermobility, meaning my joints have an unusually large range of movement. However, because I’d managed to upkeep such a successful gym routine, training my body.. and the muscles that support my joints- they remained strong and supported. My focus on gym remained Holy for many years and so I’d built a strong support system. Now that I haven’t been to the gym, and my body has experienced such a change, my muscles have weakened and therefore my joints are extremely aggravated and prominent, especially in my shoulders.
🌟I’ve been prescribed physio therapy and have had to promise to rebuild my gym routine, ensuring I train at least three times per week. It will be nothing like before though, no training for Ego, but instead, for my health and wellness.
🌑I STOPPED SUDDENLY; and my body hates me for it; the nurse ensured I knew that. But I’m glad. I’m so happy because now I’m able to go back to my second passion in life; guilt free. I was pressured from uni, and forgot about my own well-being. #bodybuilding#fitness#gym#workout#motivation#fitnessmotivation#fit#fitfam#muscle#gymlife#training#bodybuilder#gymmotivation#lifestyle#powerlifting#fitnessmodel#health#personaltrainer#fitspo#crossfit#instafit#gains#strong#nopainnogain#healthy#fitnessaddict#abs#nutrition#diet#bhfyp

Here is a little more info on free radicals and what antioxidants can do to alleviate the problems that can come with them!
I know for me, I like to feel as sharp as possible all year long, so these small tweaks can make all the difference
Vitamin C and opti reds are a go to for me and I will probably be throwing in the turmeric with that to see how I react with it!

My first @pescience mega haul! 🤪🔥 I’ve heard so many amazing things about their products and they’re used by many of my favorite athletes so I had to just take the leap and try them out during their Black Friday sale!! I WENT ALL IN! 🤪🔥 it was the best worst decision of my life because now I’m addicted and refuse to use any other brand of preworkout/protein powder. I knew this was coming so I also bought some cute attire to represent. 😂💙 LIKE HONESTLY THE CROP HOODIES & SPORTS BRA ARE SO CUTE. THANK YOU PESCIENCE!! #pescience#takemymoney#ilovecottoncandy#stack#supps#protein#preworkout#pump#yum#gains
