A little sneak peek of tonight’s workout! I cannot believe I’m in the final week of this 8 week program! Only 4 days a week, Lift, HIIT & Core, and I am SO thrilled with the results I’ve been seeing!
This program is a busy girl’s DREAM! 💪🏻 What are your favorite type of workouts? Are you a weights girl, HIIT, dance, running, sports, or something else?
0-0 full time. Would be happy with that result especially considering we were away but with that performance we definitely deserved a win. Well played lads💚💚 #Gawa #NorthernIreland #NorthernIrish

Situated just off Donegall Street in Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter, Commercial Court is one of the capital’s most historic spots! 👍 Snapped perfectly here by @tschang
, this tiny cobbled alleyway was once Belfast’s commercial heart and today is full of great food and drink spots 🍻
At night, the court comes alive with glittering lights and the buzz of people coming from far and wide to visit the street and its many traditional pubs, such as the famous and oh-so cosy Duke of York (pictured). Rammed full of interesting memorabilia, this traditional Northern Irish bar is well worth a visit! ✨

(Slide>>)Awesome "before and after" on Peter's half sleeve.
The old traditional tattoo was lightened by us to make way for this awesome, full colour Phoenix, by @armslikewings
Big thanks to Peter and Chris for the photos 👌
"Yeah sure, she's getting results, it's probably easy for her." (Newsflash, I assure it's not!)
"But is she helping other people actually get results too?" 🤔
I wouldn't BLAME you for wondering this because I wondered the same thing too when I first spoke to the coach that offered to help me with mine.
But tonight I have such a PROUD COACH moment to share that would be selfish of me to keep to myself.
Let me introduce you to @perkinspaulina
! She's been in our challenge groups for a couple of months now completing our 80 day program.
This woman is a ⭐ROCKSTAR⭐ who has let NO excuses get in her way, and on Friday she sent me her results after completing her last workout the day before. She lost 25 POUNDS and 23 INCHES in 80 days you guys!
These are her words to me:
"I feel like new person inside out! I might have lost weight but it's not comparable to what I gained... Confidence and desire to live best life...I don't know if you can describe it that way but that's how I feel."
Not only that, but one thing Paulina hadn't shared with us UNTIL she had finished the program is that she also has PCOS which makes weight loss an even bigger struggle.
She said, "Gaining Weight is the most difficult symptom of this condition. That's why it's so emotional for me. You can accomplished anything you want... You just have to be strong."
Guys, I had CHILLS and was in tears myself on Friday. And the one thing she said she had needed was GUIDANCE!
Now she's rocking her OWN coaching journey because she wants other women to feel the way that she does and KNOW that these freaking programs WORK!!! And you don't have to do them alone! 🤜🤛
So, why not make that jump yourself? We start RIGHT after thanksgiving and I'm taking you ALL the way to Christmas with me. Guiding my girls through the mindset shifts that help ME stay consistent during the holidays without missing out on life!
If my food-loving, exercise hating self can do this, SO CAN YOU. You know where to find me if you're ready to jump in!
When "getting ready" doesn't make you want to burn everything in your closet! 🙌💁♀️💞
I've had far too many moments than I'd like to remember where I've gone to get dressed for my day, nothing quite fit right and I ended up leaving the house feeling like crap, pissed off and it just COMPLETELY set the tone for my entire day.
Do you ever find that? Leave the house in a bad mood and it just lingers with you?
Not this morning!!!!!
In an attempt to recreate a look from Pinterest I had saved, I decided to pull out a pair of skinny jeans I had trouble buttoning a few weeks ago and they fit like a DREAM!!! Then I thought, "To hell with it, go big or go home" and tried tucking my white tank top in (which I NEVER really do EVER!)
DIDN'T feel like a busted can of biscuits!!!💃🤘🏽🤗🎉
Feeling comfortable in your own skin.....can't put a price tag on that! Glad I didn't talk myself out of making that investment in myself!
Life is too short to be unhappy. Let me show you this way!
It’s a love/hate relationship with the prowler. So good to use but boy does it kill 😂 little shoutout to @mikemcauleypt
sitting on his ass as usual👀
Finally got to have an Asda create your own pizza which was amazing with their vegan cheese😋🤤 had it with garlic mayo, way better than any dominoes😂😂
Fab chill Sunday with @pete_inaforest
💖 trip to 387 Ormeau Road where I had a hot chocolate and New York Deli toasted sandwich🤤🤤 and saw some beautiful birdies🦆
) is Northern Ireland’s first speciality grilled cheese and coffee bar! 🧀🥪 Thanks to @joshua_mcmichael
for this awesome pic! 📸 When they’re not out and about at events, founders Emma and Jo - and their 1950s caravan ‘Mini’ - can be found pitched up at their field base right by the famous Giant’s Causeway in Bushmills, on the north coast of County Antrim. Emma and Jo pride themselves on using local, organic and sustainable produce, and make everything fresh from scratch in the caravan!👌 With outdoor seating and a stunning view over the North Atlantic, Maegden is the perfect place to stop for a coffee or a bite to eat whilst exploring the beautiful Northern Irish countryside!

Book number 58 of #abookfromeverycountry
- NORTHERN IRELAND
I love this book! I’ve had around a week off from reading which surprised me as I thought I’d be hammering the books whilst on holiday, but once I got started with this, I was really absorbed by it. It’s told from the point of view of “middle sister” (we don’t learn any names of the characters, just “third brother in law”, “first sister”, “longest friend”, “maybe-boyfriend” etc), during The Troubles in Northern Ireland. “Middle sister” is trying to navigate life in these turbulent times, forever looking over her shoulder, seeing the hidden meanings in daily interactions, having a sixth-sense awareness of who can and cannot be trusted. The author has done such an excellent job of communicating life under these circumstances, particularly from a young woman’s perspective. I highly recommend it and am not surprised at all that it won the Man Booker Prize this year. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
As we continue the November #writinginthemargins
challenge, week 1's second question focuses on the members in our cast that are from traditionally marginalized groups. Our cast is at once massive and very small, but our three main peeps are Naveena, Keita, and Tylor.
Naveena is British Indian woman. She was born in Scotland to South Indian parents (her father is Kannadiga and her mother is Konkani; both are from the southern Indian state Karnataka). Keita is a Japanese male who lives in Wales with Naveena. These two are somewhat easy to recognize as part of marginalized groups: Naveena is an Asian brown woman and Keita is an Asian immigrant who has kept his Japanese accent.
Tylor, however, might only be seen as a member of a marginalized group depending on where you're looking from. He's the son of a Catholic priest from just outside Armagh, Northern Ireland, whose family still speaks Gaeilge. If you know anything about the Troubles, you could see how this could cause him and his family some problems. He would only encounter such issues in some contexts, however, as he continues to be a white, able-bodied, cismale regardless.
With its red bricks and ‘flat-iron’ shape, Belfast’s Bittles Bar (@BittlesBar
) must be one of the city’s most eye-catching pubs! 😍 Founded in 1868, the bar was originally called ‘The Shakespeare’, as it was famed for attracting a variety of theatrical clientele. Today, Bittles offers a wide selection of local draught and bottle beers and ciders, known for its extensive whiskey collection and welcoming atmosphere 🍺🤗

(>>Slide to see progress and finished tattoo)Another fine example of what to do with your old 90s tribal... Get it lasered first!! Ciaran was starting a brand new sleeve, but this old tribal wolf at the top was restricting him from getting anything with lots of detail.
A few laser treatments later and the awesome @tommygunntattoo
was able to do this amazing trippy bio girl face... absolutely fantastic, love this style 👌👌. Thanks Ciaran, good luck in the wedding dude 🤜
