BOOKS 📚🤓 Slightly different post for me but for anyone who doesn't know me I absolutely love reading! I'd much prefer to read on the train in the morning than sit staring my phone, so I thought I'd share with my current reading list with you
At the moment I'm reading The Secret Barrister: Stories of the Law and How It's Broken - it's a book written by an anonymous practising criminal barrister about the criminal justice system and its amazing! Personally I'm reading it because it's obviously very relevant to my pupillage starting in a few weeks but it's so important that everyone understands the difficulties criminal justice faces at the moment and the potential impact that has on all of us! It's such an eye-opening and informative read but it's so entertaining and I would 100% that everyone reads regardless of whether you have any interest in the law
I was also bought @thefoodmedic
For Life for my birthday and I'm loving it! As well as trying lots of the recipes it's also packed full of important information that helps you understand food and its importance in all areas of our lives regardless of your previous knowledge base
Finally, two books which I haven't started yet but will definitely be taking on holiday with me to read of the plane are Sapiens and Home Deus by Yuval Noah Harari - I bought these for myself after listening to @uhnonee
podcast all about books and I'm so excited to read them! Very very briefly they discuss human evolution and how we've got to where we are today, challenging our basic thought processes behind everyday concepts and making you rethink a lot of things you take for granted! I'd definitely suggest that you listen to the Adulting episode where Uhnone discusses them as she reads extracts which blew my mind! I don't think they're going to be the easiest read but I'm excited to get stuck in and I'll definitely let you know what I think
If you guys have any book recommendations for me, please comment below!
Some days you feel on top of the mountain.. other days you are the mountain 🤷🏻♀️.
Life happens, roll with the punches y’all ✌🏼🖤
We had an audience for our workout today 🐶, one wasn’t feeling it and the other loved that we were down on the ground with him 😂
💥DAY 2 and I can already feel the
S H I F T. To say that my nutrition has been “off” the last few months would be an understatement. I mean I am battling an addiction to @duckdonuts
if you don’t know what I’m talking about, DONT google it! 🍩 Just go on about life like they don’t exist, because they are dangerous 😳
Anyway, just 2 days into my new program, and I already feel the cravings going away... I have been drinking my superfoods shake consistently for the last week and man can I feel the difference 🙌🏻
Not only is it super healthy, but it really helps my sweet tooth. •
Also, my husband, who up until now wouldn’t drink the shakes, has decided that they are actually “pretty good” 😍 his words, not mine. It is so much nicer AND easier doing this WITH him. We are making healthy decisions together and spending quality time with each other! I can’t wait to see how we transform over the next 8 weeks 💪🏼
It’s not too late to join us!! This program is only 4 days/week...that means you can still start this week and be on track! If you think this sounds like something you want to try or hear more about, DM me and I will get you set up in our online challenge group. You will have support, accountability and a lot of fun 👯♀️, I guarantee it! •

God sent me this program because at this moment I needed it and @joelfreemanfitness
Excited for my next workout already, however surely ready for that rest day tomorrow! 😂😬

Best Me | rework I did of the original cover #bestme
program started yesterday, however I’ve been doing the “B4 LIIFT4” 20 minute workouts for a couple weeks and LOOK AT THOSE BACK AND SHOULDER GAINS!! I wasn’t even seeking these types of results, I can’t wait to show you guys my final results in 8 weeks 😍😍
PS: I get a rest day tomorrow and have no idea what to do without my workout, what do you guys do on your rest days? 🙂
I had a great shoulder and back workout this morning; my muscles were achin’!
And how cute is this set from @target

Too good not to share. 😂😂😂 Shoutout to @physio_memes
for making PT school more bearable with his humor and mnemonics!
She's back from the essay nightmare!! Rested & ready to smash it 🏃🏻♀️ Pretty much all of last week was spent powering through towards my assignment deadline. Words cannot explain how excited I was to finish!!! Last week was also an amazing training week, but I didn't have the time to share it with you. For those who don't know I joined @londonheathside
to switch up my training and I think I am a little bit in love 😍 I'm enjoying sprint training so much. It's definitely a challenge, but that is exactly what I needed. Let's see what the next few weeks brings. Check out my story for today's session

Snack time! And personal development! Great combo!! What are you reading to help make you a better you? Also what’s for snack???
Making my perfect pink smoothie has become a daily habit for the last week thanks to this heatwave ☀️. For me a smoothie has to be super thick and creamy, almost like mr whippy Ice cream 😍. I’ve shared this recipe a lot before, but if you’re looking for a great breakfast or pre/post workout snack then this is the one... RECIPE • 1 frozen banana • Small handful of frozen raspberries • 1 sachet/ 30g Toffee @whey_box
• Handful of Ice Cubes • 200ml Almond Milk or Oat Milk 👉🏻 Add it all to a blender (I use @nutrininjauk
). Shake together and then blend until smooth and mix grows in volume!
Hope you like it as much as me ☺️. #BestMe #EatTrainHappy #ProteinSmoothie #SummerSmoothie #Preworkout #smoothierecipe #girlgains #healthyrecipes
Some days it’s important to remember where you started.
I remember what it’s like....
Not feeling comfortable in your own skin.
Hiding behind loose clothes.
Trying to diet & then losing it all to a binge.
Going to the gym & feeling like everyone is judging you.
Taking laxatives every single day.
Lying about what you had eaten to avoid a lecture.
Throwing up in the bathroom just to binge again.
Spending 3 hours a day at the gym then go months without stepping foot in there.
Most of all.. I remember how UNHAPPY that girl was. How much life she wasted worrying about a size or a number on the scale. How overly concerned she was with others opinions. How much she didn’t love herself..
That’s the biggest change I see in these pictures... the woman on the right loves who she is. I’m confident and proud and TRULY HAPPY. I fought through all the crap and the negative self talk to find balance in my life. And man oh man am I glad I did.
Have you been there? Have you felt the way I did? Have you searched for a way out only to find yourself going back downward? I feel you. I’ve been there. And there’s a way out, I promise. Keep fighting for your life, your happiness.✌🏼🖤
Magical glass of sunshine, give me life 🙏🏼☀️

Why can't my breakfast look like this everyday instead of being packed in to a million tupperware to eat at my desk?
Yesterday ended up being one of the most active days I think I've ever had so I'm pretty thankful that I had a big breakfast - chocolate caramel oats with banana and @jimjams_spreads
definitely set me up for a big day 👌🏻 What's your go to breakfast before a busy day?
This is exactly how my days are feeling at the moment - whizzing along at super speed, enjoying an adrenaline-fuelled ride with wonderful people beside me and a grin that I just refuse to wipe off my face ... even if I don’t really understand where this crazy awesome ride is taking me!
I keep asking myself if life can get any better than this ... and then by the Grace of God it does. ▪️SJ

Saw this picture yesterday @womeninpain
and it really touched me. My TCM healer told me last week, that she saw, that most women with endometriosis are sort of perfectionists. Until then I didn't think of me as a perfectionist but what is written here makes me realize, that I ALWAYS feel the pressure of needing to be productive. I feel very bad just watching TV or reading a normal novel or just relaxing. Even though, especially the relaxing part is so important! To do some meditations or just lie there half an hour with relaxing music to let go...I realized , that this is very hard for me. I am working on myself until I'll be okay with not being productive all the time.
Super glad I’m surrounded by a tribe of babes who pull all the magic out of me, even when I don’t feel magical.✨
Do you have people who pull the good out of you always? If not, I’ll share mine 😋
