Getting back on it 🙋🏻♀️
If you’ve been following my stories you know I’ve had a pretty indulgent few weeks. First Neals birthday in Poland then our first anniversary last weekend. 💖
It’s not always easy to get back on track but I have a few tips for months where your weekends seem to be filled with booze 🍷 and food 🥘
1. Don’t beat yourself up when you have a bad meal or a night out or in my case 4 days of both... this will only lead to feelings of guilt and possibly eating for comfort. Accept that it was a chance to make memories and move on...
2. Rehydrate... make sure you get loads of water back in you, it will help your body recover and flush out any nasties.
3. Plan your meals for the week, even if it’s not full meal prep, even just knowing what you are going to have will help with those lingering cravings! Lastly
4. Get moving... on those hangover days where you feel like you can’t do anything try to just get out for even just 30 mins in the fresh air, it will put you in a better mindset to start again!
🎈My weekends are my remedy.... I’m generally of the mindset that I’m super healthy through the week and at the weekends I relax a little..... but remember I’m maintaining, if you are still trying to lose fat you need consistency... focus on boozing just one night or having one bad meal rather than boozing Friday and Saturday and eating 6 bad meals! And if you can have a booze free weekend or a weekend of healthy nutritious meals... you will feel amazing after 🙌🏻
Dinner for queens 👸
Prawns 🦐 are the most underrated food ever! I love experimenting with swapping chicken for them! Good source of omega 3 and protein... and delicious 😋
Tonight’s tea was prawn 🦐 and chorizo in a homemade tomato 🍅 and garlic sauce on a bed of spinach with a jacket potato 🥔 asparagus and corn 🌽💖
DAY 1 photos! Got 20 hard weeks in front of me but I am up for the challenge. Can't believe I only have 12 days till I am done with my masters like What!!! Have at least 30lbs I need to lose and a bunch of body fat to drop for this show. Gonna avoid working legs as much as possible and try and do glute focused exercises only to try and decrease my leg size during the first month or 2.
Ya girl has been MIA for a day or 2 but time with family is precious and these last few I have been spending with my family who have come over to Melbourne from New Zealand, some being their first time outta the country 🙊
Last night we celebrated my uncle turning 50 years old as well as celebrating his new journey into marriage. This event truly tested me mentally! I had alcohol ready to drink & I had debated for days leading up to yesterday whether I would drink or not considering I haven't had a sip of alcohol since December 31st 2017. I thought to myself you know what? It has been such a great reunion, I'm feeling like I'm home and the people around me are genuinely happy so why not have a drink to celebrate. As the night went on I started debating again and again, I'm my own worst critic and I could hear the devil on my shoulder telling me do it sis, don't worry about it 😂 but then the angel on my other shoulder reminded me why I chose to give up alcohol this year and thar it wasn't a forever thing, just a for now thing.
So for the evening, this was my delicious beverage of choice ..... h2o 💧lol. No regrets here though, the amount of headaches I saw people wake up with this morning was harsh 😂 These events are slowly but surely becoming that little bit easier to bare 😊

Balanced plates 🌈
One of the easiest way to get a balanced plate is just by focusing on getting in as much colour as possible 🍴
I’m pretty proud of this plate... micro rice 🍚 for carbs... don’t be afraid of micro rice... it’s a life saver, I go for whole meal for that extra fibre.
Veggies 🌽 🍅 🌿 should be half of your plate.... go for allllll the variety to keep it interesting
Protein 🐓 I love chicken I could eat it everyday and lean for those who are trying to lose fat... I limit red meat to 1-2 times a week
And healthy fat 🥑 can’t beat a bit of homemade guacamole... be careful having shop bought, it’s often full of rubbish and it’s so easy to make at home 🏡 ... just smash some avo
Yay I passed my exam! Now to take a short break before focusing on graduate comprehensive exams for the rest of the weekend. Wish me luck!🍀
RD practice Exam 2 tomorrow hope I pass /improve my score so I can focus on graduate comps this weekend...2 weeks left I can freaking do this!!!
Eating my bodyweight in sushi 🍣
It was a struggle this morning not to get a sausage and egg sarnie 😂
But I settled with the best porridge ever 🐻 🍯
2 years in the making and I ain't stopped yet. Be your own motivation! Compete with yourself to be better than the person you were yesterday and never give up on yourself the mind is a powerful thing if you believe you can then you CAN if you believe you CAN'T then you can't it's as simple as that. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!!!
...me driving long distances alone, being close to finishing school and my internship, me before last test panicking that I would forget how to breathe when i tried to go to sleep and hyperventilating. .
A little anxiety here and there is normal. However Anxiety even though at times it can be very silly and other people won't understand why your so worried about "x". It can also be very freaking scary for the people experiencing the anxiety no matter what they are worried about..
😱 I had a panic attack while driving home a couple months ago and had to call and ambulance because I didn't know if I was dying or gonna pass out in the middle of nowhere on the side of the road. Or last month when i thought i would forget to breath when trying to sleep before a test because i was worried i had to much caffiene and a show i watched that day had someones lungs stop working after taking to many stimulants. DEFINATELY one of the most terrifying things in the moment even though it sounds silly now thinking back on it but I seriously thought that I was going to die and forget how to breathe anxiety is not a laughing matter to those who experience it and sometime deep breaths or exercise are not enough it's ok to need help it doesn't make you weak or mean your worthless some people just need a little extra help and there is no shame that. #anxiety #forgothowtobreathe #panicattack #mentalhealth
Deep breath 😥 So sorry if this post offends anyone but I needed to post this for me !! I wasn't gunna post this pic as im been extremely body conscious and left myself vunrable but sod it, it's part of my weight loss journey , its so easy to hide under clothes and not open yourself to people's judgements, The left pic is now 😟 iv been back at it for 3 and half months so I think it's not bad progress compared to the right pic which took me 5 months to get to that stage, goes to show lifting weights is a bonus 💪💪 I'm under no illusions that I'm no model, yes I'm thick set , yes I have thick thighs, yes iv quite a few wobbly bits, yes iv been over weight my whole adult life but as iv said it's a long road im on, I'm making that bit more progress than this time last year I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF sorry for the long post 🙈 #icangetthere #iwillgetthere #flab2fab #flabrehab #myweightlossjourney #myprogress #littleisbetterthannone #sorrynotsorry #thickthighs #losingweightwithweights #progressnotperfection
Krakow has been amazing but now it’s time to get home, get rehydrated and get back to the gym 😂🤰
Countdown to Father's Day
T minus 6 days
When I first started my health journey💪💪 a friend told me that I should be happy and proud of who I was. In a way, she associated my wanting to get healthy with vanity but my reason to be in OPTIMAL weight had nothing to do with how I looked. What many of you don't know is that a friend who was also struggling with his weight had a heart attack💔💔 and sadly passed away🙏🙏. His son was in the same classroom as Jakov. I heard first hand how much pain it caused him. This scared me, my thoughts were of what IF it was me...😭😭😭seeing these fathers reach OPTIMAL health takes me to that point in my life. Now this little baby and their families will have a future full of memories with dad.
