Current condition! Currently only got one focus, no cheating, no skipping cardio or training & eating by measure macros!
Starting to feel more & more nervous about stepping on stage even though it's so far away! Just hope I can make myself & my mates proud.... #initforme
2 weeks and 4 days out 😊💪🏽👙 Looking forward to my first show! Being only 18 going into this I don't expect to win or even place! Just gain as much experience as possible for my future as a competitor, and to push myself to limits I thought I could never reach 😊 #gettingsoexcited#initforme#bikinicompetitor
My lower body has never looked so good!! So I'm forcing it upon you 😂
I'm never ever going to compete, this body sculpting journey is purely for me. This does make it hard to stay motivated and on the right path.
Most people seems to be doing it to compete or get a modelling deal or a career in the industry.
I'm just enjoying being a little sponge when it comes to diets and different training techniques. Out here trying to be happy with ageing and what is otherwise a very mediocre and normal life.
Yeah I'll put that under "hobbies" on my CV 😂😂😐
When you're into health and fitness it seems like everyone has an opinion on your body. Most often opinions on the size of your ass and how lean you are. If you're reading this, here's a kind reminder to do it for yourself. It's YOUR reflection, YOUR body, YOUR goals and not THEIRS to worry about. Let's have a body love party - I'll bring the cake. #initforme#notthebiggestcake#stillacake#yafeel
When you stop worrying about the acceptance of others. When you don't worry about other people's opinions of you. When you stop focusing on the negative and start focusing on all the positive. When you realize people will only change if they want to change. When you stop sweating all the small stuff. When you make the best out of everything because you know life is just too short. When you make positive changes because you refuse to settle for anything less. And when you start doing it for YOU. THAT is truly when you start living.🙌🏼
Have faith and start believing in YOU!❤ #ididntcomethisfartojustcomethisfar
So excited to have been given the chance to combine my engineering degree with a STEM degree! It’s a mix of subjects I feel extremely passionate about. Currently in the UK the entire stem industry is only made up of 13% women. This is a great chance to make the future equal and to banish any taboo linked with women in these industry’s! Bring on February and my chance to make a difference. 😁🤓
This makes me happy! Watching a women progress after one week. Her energy was uplifting and positive. She was strong and proud through her workout. Not to mention she did her HOMEWORK😍😍 packed lunches, made healthier food choices, and workout on her own. Couldn't be more proud. .
I did not feel like working out after a busy day at work let alone cardio being on my calander for today. Some days are like that the struggle is real, just have to push through the mind saying no and do it! You don't have to be perfect in the routine, just put in your max effort and you will see results. #mindovermatter#cardioworkout#shawnt#initforme#onlyhaveonelife
Day 4 of 28🔥 “Yo IG I did it” I had every reason not to workout today especially when you start your “Red Mood”👹😩
I took a second got my ass together and completed my mission🤸🏽♀️... it definitely wasn’t my best but then again “the only bad workout is the one that DIDN’T happen”
Got a compliment today at work that my dedication to working out is inspiring a coworker to get going on their fitness too. She said in the short time I've been working out regularly, she has seen a big change in my face particularly. It's nice when your hard work is recognized!
Thought I would take a minute and talk about what’s going on with my back because this is why I didn’t do the 5k last weekend and why I won’t be doing any for a little while.
I found pictures to kind of help. I’ve always known I have Kyphosis or a hunch back bc it’s pretty obvious . However, back when I had Harrison I was informed I also have Scoliosis. I had my back Xrayed and both of these confirmed back in April.
I had always chalked up any back issues to me being obese. After find this out I chalked up my pains since weight loss to the deformities.
However, in about August my dull aching back steadily started getting worse. I set up an appt with my doctor in the beginning of Oct. she sent my straight to a specialist.
Yesterday I had that appt. basically my back is a huge mess. Not only do I have scoliosis and kyphosis but I also have lordosis and arthritis in my spine. The lordosis is a factor in my current pains. However the bigger issue is that I apparently have fractures in my lower spine(2nd picture in the red circle area). These fractures happened when I was younger but never caused me issues bc the disc was keeping them for totally rubbing together. Now that disc isn’t doing that and my vertebra have pinched or compressed my nerve.
This is where the real concern comes in. They will be doing further testing in the coming month to see exactly how and how badly my nerve is pinch. As of right now it’s causing me weakness in my left leg as well as over activity of the nerve where things like walking on rocks with shoes on feels like walking on legos barefoot.
The further testing will decide on the course of treatment that is taken. My options are an oral steroid, a epidural shot or a spinal fusion.
So right now it’s kind of a waiting game. 🙂.
