Who doesn't want a free banana in Darlinghurst? Come and say hello to Plus Fitness for a free 10 day trial at the gym and grab yourself a banana, bottle of water and a protein sample. 🍌💪😅
My entire gym is brand new, they replaced every piece of equipment with a better, newer one, and I felt the difference in my legs and glutes =') I expect progress to go even better from here on out!
Today though, today was a rough af day. The tears have been on speed dial. Crying is cleansing to me when I'm having a hard time, I don't think anyone should feel ashamed to cry or try to suppress those emotions, letting them out will give you the release to move on sooner! I hate being told not to cry, or that there's no use in it. It is natural to have bad days and if stress/pain/fear tries to come out that way, let it happen, my loves. You can sigh and pick yourself up afterward, but it doesn't have to be rushed.
Much of the trauma from my past left me through incredibly intense wailing sessions. Oh yeah. I ain't afraid of that crap. I do feel better and now I'm going to my little space to work my arms and do yoga.
Guten Morgen ☀️ #riseandshine
Ich fühl mich heute schon ein wenig besser als gestern Abend (dürfte die Vitamin C & Zink Dröhnung gewesen sein 😂), bin aber froh, dass ein Rest Day ansteht. Werd heute noch Ruhe geben und mich anständig auskurieren, morgen sollte ich dann wieder fit sein 😊 Werd die Zeit nutzen, um das YouTube Video für Samstag zu schneiden und ein paar Stunden Blog-Arbeit zu erledigen - das geht gut von der Couch aus 😁 Ich wünsch euch einen tollen Tag, und keep in mind: morgen ist schon Freitag 😌🙏🏻 #thursday #vizefreitag #workout #recovery #dowhatyoulove #bodybuilding #whateverittakes
Thanks Marc for doing these studio shots for me☺️ it’s so good having shots in your bikini & in your stage poses to be able to have an idea of your condition and later use as a comparison! It’s an incredible process watching your body change with each Comp that you do. You are not always aware of the changes as we see our bodies daily, but it’s when you suddenly see photos that you are aware of just how much it’s changed or grown... it’s the tortoise that wins the race 😉. For those that know me, the changes in my body from 3 years ago is significant! I struggled with an eating disorder most of my life and was terrified of putting on weight, keeping myself in a constant deficit of food and always painfully thin. Then one day I decided I was so tired of people telling me I was too thin and needed to put on weight and wanted desperately to put on weight but in a healthy way. The funny thing is, I think bodybuilding found me... I was training with my very first trainer @matt_sys_gym
and he asked me if I had ever thought of competing in the Mr and Miss Zim as it was called back then, that was the January. Up until then I had only ever photographed competitors and was always intrigued at how through diet and training someone could get their body to that level, so I decided to give it a go 😁💪 I started out at my healthiest weight at the time of 46kg (my lowest weight being 36kg😑) and when I competed this weekend I was at a competition weight of 54kg! All of that weight I’ve gained, being lean muscle mass! So the achievement is not standing on stage and always winning a trophy, the achievement is you and what you have achieved along the way! It is your journey and you own it! It has been the most incredible journey and I can’t wait to get myself to the next level! It has been a struggle for me to gain muscle and even harder to maintain it, as it the first thing to drop off me if I loose weight in any way! The thing is I’m not scared to put in the work, I love and live for the challenge and I’m determined to get my body to where it needs to be 😁💪 it will take time but I will get there! #bodypositive #strongwomen #strongisthenewskinny #strongisbeautiful #bodygoals
Did arms today, my favorite 💪🏼
I could tell I haven’t been as consistent because I was feeling weaker than compared to when I was consistent with my workouts. CONSISTENCY IS KEY and that is no lie 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 but I’m back at it and I’ll get back to how I was before and even better 😜😉
Warmed up with a 1 mile run
Finished up with 20 minutes on the stair stepper

Little reminder to everyone 🐻 cause selflove is so important 💕 If you are not happy with your body, mind, job, relationships or whatever, you have the option to change something every single day! You just have to start, mostly the first steps are the hardest 👣 - I know, but it’s worth it - trust me ⚡️#loveyourself
JAN vs. NOW! // This one goes to those who are either starting their fitness journey, those who kill their workouts on the daily and those of you (like me) who are trying to reach new #goals
- KEEP IT UP! We got this! I always support anyone trying to be a healthier version of themselves. I know from experience that is a lot of hard work. Some days we wake up and kill it at the gym. Other days however, we might get moody, lazy, or sleepy. But we get over it and somehow make it up thru the week. We all know gains don't come easy and only those of us going thru it understand the meaning of #slowprogress
! Celebrate your accomplishments, take your photos and realize how far you've come!

Sooo it’s #throwbackthursday
and I haven’t done one in a while so here it is. This is one of many pictures that never made it to social media because I was so ashamed of how I looked. I was pretty active, I managed the stress of 2 kids and working as well. But my eating choices were poor. I never took lunch to work, opting instead for chips and coke from a vending machine. If I was still hungry on my way home I’d pop into maccas and get a cheeseburger. I’d eat massive portions at dinner and drink far more soda than any person should. I was fat, I was tired and I was sad. This transformation is so cool because now I take meals to work EVERY DAY. I eat good sized portions. I don’t remember the last time I went to maccas. If I want a burger I’ll opt for a healthier version or make one myself. I’m also a lot more active. I still work full time, I still take care of my kids but now I squeeze the gym in too!
A few little steps lead me into a happy healthy lifestyle and I’m never going back 💜

At one point, I could do 8-10 reps back to back on pullups, I'm lucky to get 4 in nowadays 😂 since 2016, something happens every year that pushes my fitness goals way to the back. Don't know when things will go back to normal?
👌🏽FEAR is a LIAR......
All the things I said or believed I was afraid of, were lies.
True Story🙈, and not even a "FUN" Fact: I once was afraid of HIIT training, and or 💃🏾 dancing in PUBLIC. THESE days, But guess what !? If I feel it I am doing it! No effs Given.....Anyway, Something within me said I could not do it and it was scary. I believed it so much that I never even gave it a shot! •
Indeed I was missing out on short bursts of effective workouts. •
😂😂All that time I missed. #smh
➕Can you beat 30 minutes & I am done⁉️⁉️ •
Old Jules Nah: I don't have time and I might break something and
Let's just say NEW JULES 2.0 ....Sure let's give it a try!
Friends ,if you tell yourself that you can't chances are you won't and if you say YES, then you Will.
SADLY 😭 It took me getting defeated and up overweight 50ish LBS to realize that 5 minutes of something could eventually add up to something MORE.
STUBBORN as I usually am, I kept watching some friends doing it, and then one day I said why the H€!!
! NOT? .
VOILÁ AND now My best friend occasionally joins, yes its #Bae
. . .
Is there something you have been afraid to try because of FEAR [[False Evidence Appearing Real?]].⁉️❗

This is level 2 of the windmill exercise I posted a little while ago: I’m holding two dumbbells instead of one and I’m wearing less as it was 30 degrees Celsius warmer at the location I did this exercise.
This move is a great way to train your entire core and to an extend your shoulders. Take a relatively heavy dumbell that you can keep above your head with a straight arm. You got to work your core (especially the sides) to remain in this position. For women it’s usually somewhere between 3-10 kg and for men 5-14 kg. That sounds like a lot of weight, but once it’s above your head you don’t have to do anything with it, no curls, presses, nor extensions. Your core takes over and you’ll feel the muscles in the shoulder area working after a while. I’m using 10 kilo (22 lbs) dumbells. Pull in your belly button to activate the core. Press your shoulders away from your ears, that way you’ll have much less tension in your neck. It helps to look where your arm should be to keep your arm stable, so stand in front of a mirror if looking upwards is a problem. How far your can slide down depends on the mobility in your spine and hip area. Do it slowly, keep the core activated. 2 minutes per side.
Remember that great abs are made in the kitchen, a strong core can be created anywhere you want.

HAPPINESS ISN'T ABOUT GETTING WHAT YOU WANT ALL THE TIME. IT'S ABOUT LOVING WHAT YOU HAVE AND BEING GRATEFUL FOR IT.

Guten Morgen ihr Lieben, jetzt haben wir schon Donnerstag. Für mich ich heute der letze Arbeitstag der Woche, da ich morgen nach Kiel fahre, da mein Patenkind konfirmiert wird. Manchmal weiß ich gar nicht, wo die Zeit geblieben ist. Als ich ihn das erste mal gesehen habe, war er nicht größer als mein Unterarm und jetzt ist mein "Baby" schon ein Teenie 😭😊 Egal genug Sentimentalität kommen wir zum Frühstück. Das fällt heute unter kreative Resteverwertung 🤤 Ich habe einfach die Reste von meinem Soja-Kokos Joghurt mit normalen Joghurt und Magerquark vermischt, noch neutrales Casein, Flavor Drops Blueberry Muffin von @got7nutrition
und Himbeerpulver von @frooggies
dazugegeben. Für den Crunch Chiasamen, Flohsamenschalen, Haferflocken und selbstgemachtes Müsli zugeben. Natürlich dürfen bei mir auch nie frische Heidelbeeren fehlen. ❤ Jetzt starte ich gut gelaunt in den Tag. Habt es fein 💐

Another amazing @ladyboss_transformations
Danielle has lost 65 pounds and SEVERAL inches with the ladyboss program
You look aahhhhmmaaazzziiinggg!😘
Drop some ❤️ below 💎💎 if she inspires you
😢 91% of women hate their bodies.
😢 $1million a day is spent on fad diets.
😢 45% of women in the ‘healthy’ weight range think that they’re overweight.
😢 50% of 5-12 year olds want to lose weight.
Sadly, these statistics go on and on.
The amount of body shaming and body dissatisfaction these days is insane, and I too am guilty of feeling as though “I’m not good enough”.
But you know what IM HERE TO CHANGE IT! 👊🏼
Sharing my own weight loss journey and personal experience has made me realise just how many women out there want to be more confident, want to love themselves more and want to LET GO of their insecurities. I will never stop spreading my message and motivating others, and I want to continue helping others to grow and educate themselves more as well ❤️
This passion for spreading self love and body positivity has led me to join forces with my girl @jemma_vaunt
to organise a screening of the “Embrace” documentary here on the Central Coast! If you have a body, no matter what it looks like, YOU MUST SEE THIS FILM! It will change the way you look at your body, feel towards your body, and think about your body, as well as yourself 🙌🏼
We will also be having a Q&A session after the screening where you can ask myself, Jemma and other BoPo babes any questions you have regarding self-love and confidence.
Tickets are just $21, and all details are in the next photo (SWIPE ). I have also got the link in my bio and the swipe up link in my story highlights. I really hope to see loads of you guys there, you won’t regret it! 🎉🎉🎉

My itty bitty biceps coming in clutch! 💕
I’ll admit it. My arms have always been one of my “problem spots.” But that’s what I love so much about my fitness journey — they don’t have to be a problem forever. I’ve been working my ass off every day for these baby biceps, and there’s something so fulfilling about seeing that hard work come to life. 💪🏻🙌🏻
I remember about a year ago a man told me “I hope you know that you’ll NEVER be one of those fit girls, no matter how hard you try. You’re just not built that way.” Some people could have easily agreed and gave up, not me. I’ve let those words reside in my soul. I’ve sweat over them. Pushed myself harder every day as I repeat them back to myself. Because ya know what?! You can let negativity bring you down or YOU CAN RISE ABOVE IT. Sure, I’ll never be a fitness model. But I AM a fit girl. You know what the definition of that is to me? A girl that doesn’t give up. A girl that chooses to do what’s best for her EVERY DAY. A girl that finds new limits and pushes them. A girl that is herself 100% unapologetically. So here’s to my girls out there working hard to better yourself, let the negative words be the fuel that ignites your fire! We are ALL in this together. 🔥💋
The darkness of doing legs. Nobody cares if I push myself to my limit and do OneMoreRep but when the results come. Then people wonder how did u do it. I respond I went that OneMoreRep
