when i first competed in 2012 i knew it wasn’t just a one-off. but back then i thought it was just about getting lean enough to compete again πŸ€” my prospective on bb changed in 2015 when i first met my coach. for the first time in 8.5 years i began to understand that regardless of age one was still able to build muscle & improve their physique, and a new journey began ... the goal posts changed ... yes i wanted to compete ... against myself! the goal became to better that last stage appearance each time πŸ’ͺ🏽 eyes πŸ‘€ are now firmly fixed on 2020 ... 3 years to build - bigger back, bigger shoulders, bigger legs ... build a booty πŸ‘ ... and bring that #bkconditioning πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜ƒ #bodybuilding #naturalbodybuilding #natty #figuregirl #masters #offseason #gotimetogrowtime #chasingdemgains #bootygoals πŸ‘ #physiquecoach #conditioning #flexibledieting #followingmypassion #chasingmygoals #trainharder #trainsmarter #bethebestversionofyou #beunstoppable #dream #believe #achieve #icaniwill #pushthelimits #findingtherainbow πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

have ditched my belt & chain πŸ˜‚ as coach has asked me to work with bw only to progress the execution of the movement! trying to keep the chest high and pulling towards the top and legs to remain behind with no swing 😳 so frigging hard, had to keep it slow as ... time under tension youch #latburn i should have filmed the last set where i set myself at the bottom to stop the swing and got 7.5 good clean reps out πŸ’ͺ🏽 #bodybuilding #naturalbodybuilding #natty #figuregirl #latwings #buildingback #backdays #chasingdemgains #offseason #gotimetogrowtime #bkconditioning #trainharder #trainsmarter #executioniskey #powerlifting #deadlift #squats #benchpress #chickswholift #strongchicks #chasingmygoals #lovewhatido #nevertooold #bethebestversionofyou #findingtherainbow πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ
WARNING - NOT A PRETTY SIGHT πŸ˜‚ so here is today’s last set of squat press, my 2nd exercise after front squats ... and we know squats of any kind aren’t exactly a heavy load for me ... so i have to push extra hard with every follow on movement. today’s target was 3 sets x 25 reps. i have been pushing a little more each week, it’s now week 4 so i had to find something extra. the 2nd set was a slow grinder, i knew my legs wouldn’t push out an extra 5 reps so i increased the load .. you can see i’m good for 8 reps then once we step into β€˜cardio’ reps it’s slow and it’s hard and it’s not pretty ... but it gets done! today’s driving push came from a video my coach posted on the weekend ... and a certain little redhead winding things up ... they were both helping me through this set today ... go hard or go home ... and chase your bloody dreams 😁 - and the video is too long cause it took me about 2 mins to grind so you don’t get to see me collapse back into the seat at the end πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #bodybuilding #naturalbodybuilding #legday #buildabooty #bootygoals πŸ‘ #chasingdemgains #offseason #gotimetogrowtime #strengthandconditioning #figuregirl #powerbuilding #powerlifting #squats #deadlift #benchpress #abs #trainharder #trainsmarter #liftstrong #liftheavy #liftforlife #chasingmygoals #bethebestversionofyou #beunstoppable #icaniwill #findingtherainbow πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

life is all about balance βš–οΈ there are 3 parts to my life 1. family (def the most important) 2. bodybuilding (my passion) 3. work (a necessity) 9 times out of 10 part of one of these is out of kilter in some way ... there is never perfection! life wasn’t meant to be easy! it’s how you face and view the challenges that matter! i look at every hurdle in my life as an opportunity to learn, move on and grow πŸ™‚ some of the greatest achievements in my life thus far have been the emotional battles i’ve conquered .. they give me more strength, courage and determination each and every day! as i was just reminded by a friend ... life is a gift, embrace it and live every day to the fullest πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’— #family #passion #lifebalance #goodtimes #livinglife #embracelife #lovinglife #findyourtribe #goodflow #positivity 🌈 #bodybuilding #physiquetransformations #chaseyourgoals #followyourpassion #liveyourdreams #findingtherainbow #bethebestversionofyou #beunstoppable πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ’–

every time i get a new training block i usually set myself some small goals to hit by the end of the 4 weeks ... usually based around a big movement & reaching some sort of strength based target 🎯 over recent months i’ve had quite a few niggling smaller issues going on in my upper body ... things have definitely improved a lot and we have adjusted this training block to ensure a full recovery .... lucky legs lol 😝 so for the next 4 weeks there are 2 main focuses ... manage technique & load = train hard but train smart! i love that my coach and i have such a great collaborative process ... he is the brains behind it all however always listens to my concerns if my body isn’t coping with something and immediately we change it up to enable recovery and longevity in this sport! if you want progress work with someone who works with you, for you! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜€ #bodybuilding #naturalbodybuilding #conditioning #strengthandconditioning #strengthandconditioningcoach #flexibledieting #offseason #chasingdemgains #gotimetogrowtime #bkconditioning #findyourtribe πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ #masters #figuregirl #2020 #chickswholift #powerbuilding #deadlift #benchpress #squats #abs #trainhard #trainsmart #bethebestversionofyou #chaseyourgoals #liveyourpassion #findingtherainbow πŸŒˆπŸ’•πŸ˜

So I have been quiet for a few weeks, unfortunately my wife and I suffered another miscarriage and this came only days before we where due to fly out for our honeymoon, we where not very far along but a miscarriage hurts when ever it happens, needless to say it put us in a very weird position where we should have been excited for our honeymoon/vacation, although it was upsetting and a bit strange at some points and put stress on us, having the break away where we could spend time with each other did help, I think it gave us something to look forward to and something to keep us occupied through another tough time, for me personally when we have suffered a miscarriage I feel a bit in limbo because I feel upset and loss but I want to be there to support Felicity but when I do share my feelings of loss Felicity tells me it helps her not feel alone. I guess after a miscarriage the best advice can be to stick together and remember you love each other πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’— #miscarriage #miscarriageawareness #miscarriagesurvivor #miscarriagesupport #searchingfortherainbow #mentalhealth #mensmentalhealth #menfeelmiscarriagetoo #honeymoon #notwhatweexpected #pregnancy #sheismyrock #loveher #findingtherainbow #itsnotfair #staystrong #stayhopeful #mencancry #itsokaynottobeokay #strongertogether #yourwingswerereadybutmyheartwasnot #yourwingswereready #angelbaby

A few more quiet moments from our spring break that fill my heart with joy.

I am not an activist at heart but this #FindingTheRainbow book by #JackieNaude was such an eye opener on untold stories. I love that it tells uncomfortable truths about all the sufferings by both the black and white man during #Apartheid and the struggles in rehabilitation & adaptation after... And no, it doesn't say when you should expect the land.πŸ˜… #GetWoke #MustRead #BookReview #SouthAfricanHistory πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦

Finding the rainbow 🌈 #hope #findingtherainbow
Tomorrow I'm going for my 5th blood draw to check my hcg levels since I've started on this (unwanted) journey. My world came crashing down about 5 weeks ago. Today, as I look back, I feel undoubtedly changed. I had to find glimmers of light in my life, the most important one being my daughter. Even though this baby was not meant for earth, I still have my little girl to fight for, to show how to be strong, how to be brave, how to be positive. I try my hardest not to give into my fear, but to focus on what could go right. #focusonthegood #fightthefear #miscarriage #molarpregnancy #miscarriageawareness #molarpregnancyawareness #lookforthelight #findingtherainbow
Submitted by Rachel McGrath, Author of Finding The Rainbow. Here's what she has to say about the challenges of Miscarriage: β€œThe awkwardness and silence of miscarriage - especially in that first trimester. Women are told not to tell anyone they are pregnant, and when the pregnancy fails they silently grieve their loss.” #findingtherainbow #miscarriage #miscarriageawareness #miscarriagesupport #grief #grieving #grievingmom #wendymatthews #thedayyouwentaway #musicto #playlist
