LOL 😂 .
So this is a progress photo almost 4 years apart! I was probably around 138lbs, didn’t lift weights consistently, and ate like shit on the left photo. I resembled something of a potato disguising myself under a floral crown... #letsbehonest
😂 and had no existing #quads
Hard work pays off y’all! Even if you can’t see it right away or at all, stay consistent with the gym and your nutrition! Taking progress photos really really really shows you how far you’ve come! I’ve got quads and curves now! Yaaaass Lmao 😂

Absolutely knocked it out the park this morning with the session in Shoreditch park! Made this session particularly tough and Lorraine has to work so hard but smashed every single exercise! Mad props! Well done... Now you have 4 days to recover before the next one... 😜 💪🏻😎👍🏻
These goons and their energy helped me from what could have been an all morning Netflix binge. We ventured out into the rain and went for a nice Saturday morning run ⛆🐶
Almost an hour into my workout with one of my guys clicking pictures all over the gym. Was in the middle of my sets, exhausted, all drenched in sweat, going to the pull up bar to finish the last set of hand release pullups hoping that my lungs don’t burst off coz of the exhaustion. But still had that big ass smile on that messed up face probably because one of my guys must have shit somethin out from his mouth but also because i was loving every damn ounce of that drippin sweat. Coz thats what we live for. For that Grind, for that one last push, for that adrenaline rush. You know there are times when you feel you have done more than enough. When you are satisfied at how you are doing good in Life at whatever you do. But i say why be satisfied at good when you can always do Better. So push yourself.. push yourself to your fuckin limit and be a fuckin Beast at what you do. .

So lovely to finally meet one of the people I've looked up to for so long, thanks for reminding me that when there's blue in the sky there's no blue in the brain Meg🦋💛
Once again no break on shift today, but lunch now whilst sat in my car is a marmite salad wrap with veggies and popcorn

Wat heeft de wereld mooie plekjes. Nu alweer verliefd op de reis, die net pas begonnen is.
Another week of workouts in the books! 🙌 Today I am celebrating non-scale victories! This week I noticed a massive increase in my endurance - both muscular and cardiovascular - and in previous weeks I have noticed huge increases in energy, confidence, and mental clarity. More than the number on the scale, these are the real gifts of fitness! What changes are you celebrating today? 🎉
First ever video but this is my current form! We discovered that we can use the spin studio whenever so @meglloyd__
and I absolutely smashed a session yesterday 😍 also this mirror is my new fave 🤷🏻♀️ gonna keep these up as we head into 3 weeks before 10k 🤞🏼 spin is such a good way to sweat without just running on a treadmill which can be boring and just a bit long. Legs hurting today but ready to get back on it heading in the first week of 6 for the cardio programme, hoping to drop some fat as well 👍🏼
But make sure your dream is realistic, manageable and achievable as you are far more likely to reach it and stick to it!
Go on, go for it today! ✨💪🏼
Eating healthy isn’t about the weight you lose, it’s about the life you gain.....that doesn’t stop me from stepping on the scale every morning hoping I’m 50lbs lighter yesterday. A girl can dream, right? ☺️ What’s for breakfast?☀️🌴🍓
Saturdays always fill me with joy! 😀I get messages and emails from my tribe of fit BFF’s on their progress, and how their week has gone before they indulge in their treat day!🍸🙌🏻
I am grateful to be a part of their health and fitness journey, I love hearing their tales - whether it’s about a child joining them to workout- one of the benefits of working out at home, or how amazing the support is from their family! 🔥
I know for sure that my day will be filled with gratitude and positivity. 💫
Now I’m off for my treat day cocktails too! 🍹
What are you grateful for today?
It was a tough week. Then my boyfriend surprised me with my favorite Farmer's Market items. The little things that he remembers that makes me smile. How'd I get so lucky? 😘😊
Have you started working out on a regular basis, started taking care of yourself and then BOOM...life happens? You get too busy to workout, too busy to eat healthy. So you find yourself sitting on your couch ordering a pizza on the weekend. Or you’re driving home from work and think “I don’t feel like cooking, McDonalds it is!” .
I see people do this too often. Myself included. What we should really be asking ourselves is “how bad do we truly want it?” Some are scared, scared because it requires a consistent commitment. .
But I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to dedicate hours of your day working out. What if I told you that 30 mins to an hour a day could change your life forever? And what if I told you that you could have one of the easiest meal plans out there? .
I challenge you to write down all your reasons why “you want it” and go back and re-read those daily. .
Do you want it bad enough? Let’s talk 💕 .

After resting for one and a half weeks and due to lack of sleep I struggled with lifting my usual weights, but I managed to get through my planned workout by lowering the weights a bit. During the last week I realized how crappy my stamina and endurance has gotten, so from now on I will be adding a short interval training session at the end of my workout. I did it on a stationary bike today and the 4 minutes totally kicked my butt 😓💦
What's more fun then battle ropes on a Saturday morning? 🤷🏼♀️💪🏻. Once you've gotten "bored" of regular battle ropes, add a bosu ball or burpee to it. 😈 Video cred to @runner918
It looks questionable but lunch was inspired by @hungryvegann
🌱 quinoa, mushroom and carrot stuffed cabbage rolls, with tomato sauce, hot sauce, lots of nooch and oregano 🌿 and dessert was a small flat peach and watermelon 🍑🍉
MAMAS - QUIT PICKING YOURSELF APART IN FRONT OF THE MIRROR. 👏🏻 I was either pregnant, nursing, or trying to lose the baby weight for the greater part of a decade. I know what it’s like to hate my body. I know what it’s like to sit on the floor of my closet crying at a pile of clothes that don’t fit. I know what it’s like to feel desperate, defeated, frustrated, and fed up with myself. I get it. I so, so get it. I know how SILLY and RIDICUlOUS that can sound to someone who’s never been in that place. But it’s the truth for so many women. If I could wave a magic wand I would banish what seems to be this deep, innate propensity for us all to be so self-critical of ourselves. I hate it for all of us. ✨
If you’re in that place, I want you to quit running that tape in your head that “you have too far to go.” Quit putting yourself off because it’s going to take too much time, too much effort. You are worth that time. You are worth that effort. Your kids don’t care if you EVER have a six pack. The greatest gift you can ever give them is a mama who has risen above her limiting beliefs - all those ideas that hold you back from your happiness, joy, passion, love and opportunities. A mama who is happy to be a work in progress. 💕
It takes a strong woman to be able to hold the tension between who she is right now and who she wants to become. “I’m not there yet, but I’m on my way.” Small, consistent steps in the right direction will always be way more powerful than any crash diet. .
