HAPPY SATURDAY!! Post workout dining hall food wasn’t going to cut it today 😂 I went out and got a hash skillet with potatoes, zucchini, peppers, spinach, and melted mozzarella topped with two fried eggs... and you can never forget about the whole grain toast on the side 🙌🏼 I’m not sure what’s in store for today, but one thing’s definite, I’ll be well fueled! Annnnd today is not as freezing so that’s another plus! Let’s just say, today is a FEEL GOOD day ✨✨ I’m wishing you all a fantastic weekend
Throwback to three years ago when I lived in Virginia, near my Mommy. Bahhh I miss her! 💕
Lemme tell you why she's so incredible.
· She's X (I won't reveal 😂) years young and goes to the gym everyday
· She had breast cancer and kicked that crap to the curb like "see ya ash-hole!"
· The doctor warned her she might get diabetes and made lifestyle changes making diabetes a non-worry
· When I was younger and put her through all my drama, she stayed by my side
· She'll cook for days to make you food you want
· There was a time she worked three jobs to make sure my sister and I were supported
· She's sweet and caring and wonderful and beautiful
The list goes on and on. So yeah, I can't wait until she moves back to California near me 😬😬😬
She roots me on everyday, and she is one of my biggest inspirations. 😍
Just another Saturday in my favorite room!! A home gym was the best idea we ever had! 🎉 Today was a double and was brutal! Legs followed by cardio🤪💪 Thats what happens when you miss a workout! You suck it up and get it done!
Happy Saturday! Hope you hit some fit goals this week! 🤟
I’m noticing that a lot of the time with check in’s for my coach, the changes in my body may be subtle but the changes in my facial appearance are drastic depending on how I feel emotionally. Last week was stressful and upsetting to say the least (swipe left for last weeks pictures). This week I have felt happy, independent, excited and eager to progress and embrace change. It’s always good to put 2 pictures together to see how you’re changing - physically AND mentally. 🌺 #injafit#12weeksout
Work and training wrapped up for today 💪🏽 I had an awesome session today finally feeling back to myself after my energy levels took a little dip due to a cold. Im fully back in action now 🏋🏽♀️.
Also I have had a lot of requests for videos of my training so I will post these up within the next week or so, be sure to keep an eye on my insta stories and I will pop some videos there too 💪🏽🍑.
Now I'm off to visit my favourites and have some down time after a super busy week ❤️. .
Have a fabulous weekend Guys xx
Week one is done!!! Today cardio flow was the hardest for me!! But I will tell you. This is probably the first time I have finished an exercise like this. I did push pause and I did have to modify and slow down but by the end some of the workouts that were hard I could almost do and some stayed modified. But I pushed myself and I completed it!!! #healthylifestyle#cardioflow#didntquit#80dayobsession#noexcuses

Had a few bad body image days so here is a picture of me enjoying a mocha ☕ It has been far too long since I have had one of these 😍 Learning to manage the feelings of guilt because there is more to life than restriction 👊
My evening snack is a bowl of Rice Krispies.
Feeling really really low at the moment so I’m going to watch Spectre with my Mum. I’m having a really bad evening so I’m going to have a ‘chilled’ evening, as for some reason I am also pretty bloated after my snack. I also might do some of the self care things as I feel like I really need it today.
Tomorrow my breakfast is going to be a little later as I’m having an ultrasound tomorrow morning and I’m not allowed to eat before hand so I’m going to have breakfast when I come home.
I hope you have a good evening and keep fighting 💪💗
MY STORY - part 3
Five years on from that first diet, I’ve made it. Hundreds of failures, hundreds of methods, hundreds of revelations. I’m almost a healthy weight (depends how you define it..), my focus is now on living, I eat freely and exercise for enjoyment and health, I live my life and everyday I care less and less about those sickly voices.
My goal is no longer torture. I want to help people, I want to be healthy, I want to be happy. I have coped with so much over these years and I have changed unimaginably. I never ever thought I’d get to where I am but hey, no one ever does.
I have amazing friends, a job, I work hard at uni, I plan trips, I appreciate life, I have a loving family and a future. (And obviously some major bicep growth, a yas)
You will never be thin enough for your disorder. You will never be ill enough and you will never be damaged enough. How do you recover? What is the optimal way? You choose to take care of yourself. You choose to be free, you stop letting decisions be ruled by disordered thoughts and you live again.
Overthinking is a disorders best friend. So think less. Go back to living on instinct. You need to gain so eat. You need to be happy so do things that get you there. You do deserve support, it’s not your fault and you are strong enough. A lot of what you feel is because of the disorder. Being undernourished means your brain doesn’t work as well. It’s a mental illness not a change in personality.
Mental disorders are not light hearted illnesses. It is so so important to be honest with where you’re at. Be there for anyone who might need it. Be open, be strong and know you are worthy. This never happened because you deserved it, it happened because brains are fragile.
Ripping up a piece of paper is easy, the challenge comes from glueing each piece back together. The more support we have and the sooner we start to work the easier it is to feel whole again. Recovery is possible
