These my friends were my very last pair of running shoes before I had to stop running aka everything in life began to fall apart. Every time I put these shoes on it felt like I was going to therapy, I would go outside and just run until whatever was bothering me didn’t both me anymore or I had a solution to a problem. I would run in the rain, snow, and cold weather. Why? Because nobody is out there, it’s just you and the world. My favorite time to run was the winter because after a little while your body is numb, you no longer feel the pain of running and you just keep running. 1 mile turned into 2 which turned into 3. When I had to stop running I was running on average 6 miles a day, I had plans to run a half marathon but couldn’t. It’s been 3 years since I’ve been able to run pain free and it’s been 7 months since I’ve had knee surgery. Ever since the doctor told me I could start working out again, running has terrified me. Why? Because I love running so much that I don’t want to go through that or any other injury again. For the past 3 months I have been working strictly on gaining strength back but today is different. I’m going to run, or at least attempt to. I might fail but I might also gain my freedom to run again. There is no way to find out then to try so I’m going to try. (Also, if anybody knows if @newbalance still sells these sneakers please tell me where. These are the only sneakers I’ve been able to run in and even used to by them in sizes too small because I was afraid I’d never be able to find them again😂)
For one minute I wish you could see yourself the way I see you, then you'd know how important you really are to me and to Him. ❤️ Salamat sa araw na to kambal! Sana ito na yung simula, wag mo ng tapusin ulit. Hehe. Mahal kita! 😘 Andito lang ako palagi para sayo! Stay beautiful inside and out. 💪💪💪 #thecomebackisreal

#ThrowbackThursday I thank God that my surgery was a success! I'm finally in the gym again and everyday the pain is a little less noticeable. I'm so ready to kill it this December in my scrubs all day for 12 hours! The down time I was forced to have made me reflect on so much mentally and physically, I'm forever grateful for everything God has put in front of me. #NoLongerThePatient going back to taking care of others #TheComebackIsReal#SitDownBeHumble#DontTestMe ♥️🙌🏼
The COMEBACK is always stronger than the setback. It's NEVER too late. BELIEVE. KEEP GOING. Little by little... day by day.... moment by moment. KEEP MOVING FORWARD. Keep getting better.... FEELING better - inside and out.... top to bottom.
THIS IS A L I F E J O U R N E Y.
This is NOT a race. It's NOT a competition. It's a JOURNEY. Don't compare.
REST. Dust yourself off. Regroup. Pray. Forgive. Heal. Refuel. Reinvent. PLAN accordingly; and then... when you're READY- A C T... and COMEBACK BETTER, STRONGER and WISER than you were "before" (take your time-but hurry up)😘
Y O U C A N D O I T. You CAN comeback... to a better life.
DO WHAT YOU GOTTA DO FOR YOU!!! Do it NOW. Do it TODAY.
I T I S P O S S I B L E !!!
❤️Mrs. Gabby G.
"I want the fairytale"
This is my 17-week contest prep transformation. On the left shows me after almost a year since I️ competed last in July 2016. I ran (literally) my metabolism into the ground after the last show and spent the year testing out a few methods for fat loss and reverse dieting. I am mortified over the before photos, yet have no shame posting them. It goes to show how much I have learned about my body since last year. I️ know now what DOESN’T work for my body and mind after a painful year of trial and error. In 17 weeks, most of that time was spent under the guidance of my coach @ifbbshane, who taught me how to eat and train for the look I️ wanted to attain without literally killing myself. I️ am currently in the best shape of my life and still working on further transforming myself for my next show in 5.5 weeks, but I️ am confident that when I️ move into my improvement season, I️ will be able to maintain a much leaner physique year-round due to a healthy metabolism I️ never thought I’d ever have again and the discovery of a sustainable way of eating on or off prep. When I started this prep, people told me I️ had no business doing a show anytime soon. Some told me I’d be better off in another division (bikini). Some even dropped me as a friend because deciding to compete again somehow made me “fake”. Thanks for the extra motivation is all I’ve got to say about that. I’m not anywhere perfect in any sense and there’s tons of room for self-improvement, but I️ am happy, healthy and full of energy and positivity these days. Thank you to those who have continued to support be throughout this time...you know who you are😜 #transformationtuesday#weightloss#contestprep#transformation#bodybuilding#npc#npcfigure#figurecompetitor#progress#motivation#thecomebackisreal#sorrynotsorry#noshame#notphotoshopped

Whether it's negative steps backward or positive steps forward, those smalls steps are adding up. It's ok to have setbacks just remember where you are trying to go, push forward and never underestimate the power of a little.
Hold da op et fedt DJM... En helt masse fede løb og pr'er - herunder 1 guld, 4 bronze og en kvalifikation til nordiske🥇🥉🇩🇰
Kronen på værket var uden tvivl min 200 fri, hvor jeg udover at blive dansk juniormester, også formår at svømme under de magiske 2 minutter i 1,59,82💪🏼 Allerede på torsdag skal der svømmes stævne igen - for der begynder DM i Greve😁🔜 #02erpower 💥 #thecomebackisreal
