DETERMINATION • this quote rings so true, we all have dreams but unless we put the work in we can't achieve them! Today I managed two different PBs, incline chest press and standing military press 💪🏼💪🏼
I am not often proud of myself, but I really feel today I achieved something and am one step closer to my long term goal 🏋🏻♀️😌
PS. I know I'm flunking the #throwback Thursday trend, but you only live once 😂
@carbienotnobarbie - Here's some mid week motivation! Side by side, 5 stone down🔥
Even though I still feel around the same bloody size mentally, but it's acknowledging I'm almost half the size now! From a 18-20 to a 10-12 within a few years. I'm SO glad I've embarked on this journey at such a young age, it's not only saved me from diabetes and multiple health issues from eating tubs of ice cream in one sitting, or having chip shop after school everyday..I've had to learn the hard way! Balance is key, I can still have ice cream, and chips but in smaller quantities and be just as satisfied! The reason I restarted my @slimmingworld journey is purely because IT WORKS!
Please please PLEASE never give up, you may be deterred like I was multiple times but my progress didn't take weeks, months or even a year...it took over 5 years!!! Fall in love with the journey, your body and this beautiful life you've been given! Don't spend it miserable, regretful or depriving yourselves..have that cheat meal, and if you ever do have a cheeky binge DONT beat yourself up over it. Drink loads of water, and move on!
Constantly thinking 'I shouldn't of ate that' and restricting yourself is unhealthy. Restart again the following day, having battled bulimia nervousa I know from experience and a progressional yoyo dieter. This isn't a diet, it's a way of living. I have a progressive muscle wasting disease, and hardly ever use that as an excuse unless I physically cannot move from the pain of a flare up!
Your mind is a powerful tool, feed it correctly!🏹❤ #fooddiary#healthylifestyle#healthyeating#myfitnesspal#caloriecounting#slimmingworld#positivity#transformation#charcotmarietooth#progressnotperfection#progressivemusclewasting#musculardystrophy#motivation#determination#youcandoit#itworks#fitspiration#myjourneytofitness#weightloss#weightlosstransformation#weightlossinspo#disabilityadvocate#fitafrique
It's been a while but I'm back & feeling better than ever. I have a lot of work to do & a long ways to go to reach where I wanna be but all I need to remember is it's not about where I've been, but rather where I'm going 💪🏽💦 #patience#dedication#determination#progressnotperfection
Im in pain everyday. It sucks but thats life. Today was one of the worst. Not sure if it was the cold weather, the lifting of heavy boxes or maybe I slept weird but today kicked my ass.
I smiled through it like I always do but I was moving like a turtle. Days like today are rough on me mentally because Im reminded of my limitations sometimes. Im not whining or looking for sympathy, those that know me know I definitely dont want your pity. Someone always has it worse than me so to be a woe is me type isnt my style, as long as I draw breath Im going to fight to have a good life.
Im just putting this out there to let others know, I understand you. Because those who deal with chronic pain or disease know how lonely and isolating it can be. Knowing youre not alone can go a long way towards healing. You are stronger than you think. I am proud of you. Keep fighting.
