Throwback to around this time last year doing heavy squats. Singles at 80kg. This week I did weighted squats for the first time in 8 weeks at 40kg. It's ironic that once I got into the swing of Powerlifting again after a deep depression period, I broke two fingers and had surgery. This girl will come back. Bring on the next few months. It will be even more special when I compete again in November as it's been a long road between meets.
There was a period in my life where drinking was a daily occurrence. I wouldn’t say I ever had a drinking problem, but I definitely had a problem with not drinking. That’s where all the fun was. That’s when I got to hang out with my friends. That’s when I could let the shy young dude inside loose and go crazy.
This just sounds soooo insane to me now, but it wasn’t uncommon for me and my best friend at the time to go halves in a litre of vodka, a litre of whisky, 12 beers, finish it all, and THEN go to town. For about 3 years, the days I wouldn’t have drank at least 5 or 6 beers would have been fucking small.
Today marks 900 days that I haven’t had alcohol in my life, and I’m actually really proud of that. I didn’t ‘give up’ alcohol, I don’t believe I was ever an ‘Addict’, I just believe I moved past a time where I found solace in alcohol. I grew past it, and no longer feel any need to consume it.
I could go on for agesss about the wonderful benefits you can reap from giving up booze, from financial, to health; relationships, to spirituality. The only question I’ll ask is what are you using alcohol for? What are you covering up or coping with? I always thought it was to have fun. To chill. To have a hard earned beer after work. I’ve learned how to do all of those without poisoning myself, and my life experiences are far richer without it in my life. .

Playtime! So important. Do you think playtime is only necessary for a kids health and development? Think again cause we’re always learning, growing, and needing ways to stay mentally happy. Start finding ways you can play this weekend :)
Late Workout for me! Whew I am so glad that is done!
I personally hate working out in the evening, but I had no choice. See, when I woke up this morning I had to take care of work stuff before heading out to conduct my training. My plan was when I got back to the hotel to watch the opening ceremony and do my workout before my next class.
Nooooo that didn't happen because the hotel had a fire exercise and when I was ready to workout the elevators were not working and their stairs only lead you outside. So, I watched the live stream and heading on with my day.
If you workout with me, you will know I self motivate. So before I got started I gave myself a pep talk. 🤪 I am so glad that is over. By the end, I was a hot sweaty mess and my arms were shaking. I swear my triceps reached muscle failure. Anyway, it is done. Total body core was awful. I am looking forward to cardio tomorrow.
Have a great day.

Eggs and avocado on toast this morning for breakfast 🥑🍳. Today I'm going to a hen night away. Obviously it's not going to be the healthiest of food and there will be plenty of alcohol 🍾🥂. I'm still going to have fun but not go completely overboard. Its all about the balance right.

HOLIDAY WEIGH IN ☀️ Expected a gain and a gain I got! Not too bad considering I ate and drank my body weight in beige food, ice cream and prosecco - yes prosecco was included in the all inclusive 🙌🏼 I’m still in holiday mode as kids are still off due to delayed flight last night so we’re all in chill mode. Back on it Monday. Plus we brought the sun home with us - you’re welcome 🙋🏻♀️
I weighed a day earlier today and iv now lost 5 stone!!!! Hit my target of my pre pregnancy weight before Summer is One on Sunday (a lot of you might think that’s taken a long time for me to loose it, but I’ve enjoyed my life along the way! This isn’t a diet for me it’s about changing my lifestyle and eating healthy) I’ve always wanted to get back to my pre pregnancy weight before she was One and I did it lol with 2 days to spare 😆🙌🏻
Still want to loose another stone before my holiday in October 🙅🏼♀️ #proudofmyself #smashinggoals #slimmingworld #slimmgworldjourney #lifestylechange #healthylifestyle #5stonegone #5stone
Last picture is only half stone difference between them but my top is so baggy now ❤️
