Legs are trembling after that! I’m gonna be sore tomorrow
‘You’re so fat, you must be really unhealthy’ ‘Wow you are huge, what size clothes are you?’ ‘You’ve put on a lot of weight haven’t you?’ I think we can all agree that these phrases are socially unacceptable right? But when we replace the word fat with skinny, or huge with tiny then suddenly it’s okay? 🤷🏼♀️
It baffles me why people think it’s okay to comment on someone’s weight when they are a healthy size, but if someone is overweight then we call it fat shaming... I don’t believe we should ever comment on anyone’s size or shape, but next time someone calls me too skinny I’m gonna say they’re too fat and see how they like it 😜💁🏼♀️💖🦄🌸💕✨ #skinnyshaming

FAQ: Do you weigh yourself?
Usually followed by: So, how do you track your progress then? 🤷🏼♀️ I haven’t taken my weight since January when I was at a doctors appointment, I can’t even remember what it read 🙈. There is nothing in my mind that makes me want to step on a scale. As women we’re constantly taught that weighing ourselves is normal and if the numbers are going down, then it’s a positive thing. 🤭🙈
My ‘progress’ is dependant on my performance, not my body. Am I lifting heavier, swimming faster, coping with tougher sessions; and if I am then I’m happy☺️.
Creating a relationship with the scale never ends well, trust me. Even if it feels good to you at first, there will come a time where the scale starts to control your mood, and your life. 🤷🏼♀️
If your goal right now is to change your body, work on the things you can gain; gain strength, gain health, gain happiness- the changes will come as a byproduct 🙏🏻💖#girlgains #fitness #fitfam #weight #scale #love #health #happy #friday #friyay #bodyconfidence #selflove
Having strong legs was always something that bothered me growing up, shorts were always a no no ❌ Fast forward 5 years and I’m looking in the mirror every morning to see if my quads are growing and any bit of sun is an excuse to get the legs out 🙄.
Nearly everybody has some part of their body that they are unhappy about, it’s normal. It’s great if you can learn to embrace it but it’s also ok to want to change it. Once you want to change it for YOU and not for how you look to anyone else.

Det er fedt, at der sker noget med kroppen, men det er lidt træls at der er færre og færre stykker tøj jeg kan passe i min garderobe 🤷🏼♀️ I dag er bendag, og så skal resten af dagen nydes i solen ☀️
F R I D A Y ✨ #mood
hurry up weekend 🥂
Other people used to tell me how addictive running is and I’d be like, ok loser. I take back every single eye roll because I totally get it now. Anyone else kind of obsessed with getting their run on in the mornings? ✨ #aceandboogie
The world full of events and situations that make us angry, upset and frustrated. Our lives are the same. There is just so much going on that causes a negative vibe however not all is doom and gloom. The world, and life, is full of equally amazing, awe-inspiring and beautiful moments.
Our mindset and the way we look at the world makes a huge difference to our perception. Be balanced and look for the good in life. I am not saying be all hippy dippy and avoid noticing the horrible events in the world. Just do not become consumed into thinking everything is negative and there is no good - this is simply not true. ♥
Happy Friday! And last day of revision finally 🙈

It’s F-F-F....foam rolling time!! 😩 = 😌 .
I had a very fun but brutal PT session this week at Gym Box (I got a complementary session as part of my membership package 💁🏻♀️) and it has left me with the mega DOMS 🏋🏻♀️
I’ve been enjoying following the #bbg
workouts the past few weeks but it was amazing to get back in the gym and lift some heavy stuff again!!! 👊🏻
Side note: I realised I’d sadly deliberated for 10 minutes about whether to use this photo as I look like I’ve got a bit of chub on my side but then I just thought fuck it. If the absolute (and usually fake) perfection we all see on social media all the time is causing people like me (who rarely has a fuck to give about that sort of thing) doubt whether to put a photo up, that’s very worrying. Rant over.

For lunch I had a delicious dragon fruit smoothie bowl and gado-gado which are veggie wraps with a satay sauce. Perfect refuel after completing my cross train session this morning; consisting of skipping, swimming, and running intervals💦🏊🏽♀️🤸🏽♀️

No make up... unsure how to pose pre gym selfie. But keep reading for some advice on how to contribute to being your strongest healthiest self and NOT just for summer ... 😉
Since being pregnant I’ve been doing a lot more of the cardio BS (joking it has its place lol) but as most know I’m all for lifting and normally that’s all I focus on.
The more clients I train the more research I do the more I learn that having muscle mass is the key!! Not only will it keep your metabolism nice and high (providing you don’t starve yourself/eat no protein and do excessive amounts of cardio) ... it will keep you strong in all range of motions so as we get older we can keep a nice posture and avoid unnecessary injuries... it will keep everything from giving in to gravity too early and having built that muscle means that even if for any reason you stop lifting and loose some muscle mass our muscle memmorey won’t let us down and as soon as we are lifting again things will get back to normal! 💪🏽
If your starting your fitness journey start with some resistance work... you’d be silly not to! 😉
Hope this helps and For more info about training with me just send me a DM!
P.S I’ve got lots of pigmentation on my belly... is this a pregnancy thing??? I did read it somewhere... 🤷🏻♀️

Day 1 vs Day 19 - Sorry if you are eating your breakfast right now 🙈.
So I thought the only way to get myself back on track and to lose the bloat was to go back to the blitz and reduce my calories and carbs right down. I was wrong - this didn't work for me. After 5 days I had no energy, I was hungry and very grumpy. When the weekend came we had a BBQ and I went crisp and dip crazy. Week 2 started off with me feeling guilty for the food I had eaten at the weekend and I just didn't know what I was doing. But then I stopped and realised what I was doing was all wrong and not right for ME. I know I need carbs and things like chocolate in moderation as they give me energy and otherwise I binge so there was no need to get rid of them completely. I had started comparing myself to other people again and I’d lost all my confidence in myself. Mid way through the second week I increased my calories and carbs and felt better instantly. The weekend came and instead of binging on everything I had balanced meals, went to the gym and then allowed myself dessert. I'm not going to lie I didn't NEED to eat a whole pack of Fox's chocolate rounds 😏😂 but it happened and I enjoyed every second. This last week I have started to actually visually see results, my jeans aren't as tight and I actually feel fitter when I'm exercising. •
I am really happy with what I've achieved in 19 days. I have lost 6lbs and 5 of those I lost in the first week. In terms of measurements I’ve lost a total of 10.5cm everywhere. I feel like I'm back into it now and little wobbles, moments of doubt happen to everyone and I think I was due one sooner or later. I need to remember that everyone is different and different things work for different people.
Although I don’t think I could probably commit to doing the blitz again what it has taught me in regards to fitness and nutrition is amazing and I can’t thank @madeleychloe
enough for that. Bring on the next book! •
We are now off down to Surrey for the weekend to celebrate our nieces first birthday and christening. The weather is supposed to be sunny all weekend and I can't wait to get down there and enjoy a gin in the sun. •
does a two-second posed photo, a smile from across the room or a couple of happy stories or tweets on social media really tell you enough about a person and how they are feeling?⠀
it’s so easy to portray ourselves on here loving life, even if we are in fact not loving life and feeling lost - I know because I’ve done it many many times before. and although I know it’s hard to not take something for it’s initial picture value, it’s so easy to check up on the people you care about and just make sure your loved ones are doing well, and really doing well.⠀
If one in four people suffer with mental health issues, it’s likely that someone close to you is one of them people. and this statistic is by no means determined by wealth, appearance etc. It’s everyone... the more we talk openly about mental health, the more likely we are to end the stigma around it. ⠀
p.s this is why trolling comments will never be okay or justified because you just do not know what someone else is going through behind that photo and it could break the person⠀
Have been getting really bored of my training recently and started to not look forward to it anymore, like I always have done.
So I’ve been a bit inspired by the @thegirlgains #girlgains
podcast and @victorianiamh
, and signed up for a triathlon for September!
600m swim, 24km cycle and 6km run 🏊🏼♀️🚴🏼♀️🏃🏼♀️
So looking forward to planning a new programme and trying some completely new things! 😁
Fear kills dreams, bravery enlightens them 🔥| I’m super sorry for being mia the past few days. I’m probably and currently making the scariest, biggest decision I’ve made in my life. But I’ll keep you updated when I know more and everything doesn’t feel like I’m on a rollercoaster at 100mph! Lots of love 😂✨💜💖🌈💭
P A N C A K E S 🥞
I move back back to Blackpool in just under a week which means I'm living off anything I have left in the kitchen. I'm missing making pancakes for breakfast, especially when they look this good!!😍😩
I love all sorts of toppings: peanut butter, chocolate, berries, yoghurt, and even popcorn!!😋😋😋
What are your favourite pancake toppings??
SHOULD YOU TRAIN ABS?
Everyone has abs & the best way to reveal them is to get down to a low body fat percentage. How low you have to go will ultimately depend on genetics, since people store fat in different areas.
So do we need to train abs?
If you can't yet see your abs, chances are you need to lose some fat. Standard ab exercises (i.e. crunches) will burn minimal calories - not ideal if your goal is fat loss.
Personally, I hate standard ab exercises. Instead, I do a lot of compound moves that involve core work, such as: • Walking overhead lunges.
• Kettle bell press ups.
Any move that involves stabilisation will work your core 👌🏼 give this a go if you find standard ab exercises boring and wanna burn some cals 🔥
Happy Friday‼️ Today’s hypertrophy session included: 💪🏼Kettlebell goblet squats
💪🏼BB conventional DL
💪🏼Close grip lat pull downs
🍑BB hip thrusts
🔃Standing military press
I’ve kept it semi light this week and haven’t dome much “strength” training as I’m sick and anything really heavy takes such a toll on my body and I’m trying to recover
This morning I decided to experiment with mixing pb2 and Nutella to make a sauce for proats, can confirm, it was epic 🤤🤤🤤🤤
My porridge exploded this morning for the first time in about 2 years but I decorated what was left with pretty toppings so all was redeemed. I think I need to change to a summer breakfast, it’s too hot for this shit ... WHO’S EXCITED FOR THE HEEEEEATWAVE 🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞 happy friyayyyy I hope, as always, it’s full of smiles and wine and sun and carbs xxxxx
happy fri-YAY! 🌈🌞 wishing i had a 3 day weekend rn... in need of some serious sleep catch up 😂😴 but very excited to spend this weekend celebrating one of my best friends birthdays in @ascotracecourse
what are you doing this weekend? ❣️
Rise & Shine, it’s Breakfast Tiiime☕️🍓
