New house, new gym, no more commuting, more sleep and less stress seems to be making me stronger already πŸ€—πŸ’ͺ🏼 Lifted some of my heaviest weight in a very long time tonight with a shoulder session from hell! #feelingstrongagain #wantbouldershoulders .

#beaniceinstahun, share this post and then do something to help someone else. πŸ’πŸ»πŸŽ„πŸŽ .
Be selfless and give something to someone who has less than you. Most of us take what we have for granted... the roof over our head, heat, food, being able to afford gym membership. Yeah we might not all have money to burn but we're definitely not poor, we're not homeless and we're not starving.
.
I have a @tonyrobbins story stuck in my head about how he delivered food to a family who had nothing, and the impact that that had on them, and on Tony. What began as Tony's individual effort to feed families in need when he was 17 years old, has now grown into the Anthony Robbins Foundation's International Basket Brigade.
It just goes to show how powerful that one random act of kindness can be. .
Contact a local charity to see how you can help. Buy some groceries for SVP or for family that you may know, buy or donate some toys or even give your time. πŸ–πŸŽπŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦
.
Don't be the person stuffing their face on Christmas Day posting about "#foodcoma lol" from your new iPhoneX while sitting in front of your roaring fire with one hand still in your protein bar selection box, knowing that you've done nothing to help those that have far less than you. .
One last thing.... don't do it for the gram, for the glory, for the recognition or for someone to give you a pat on the back. πŸ™…πŸ» Do it because you're actually a decent person that likes to help others. βœŒπŸΌπŸŽ…πŸΌπŸ’•

A pale and tango'd #throwback to April πŸ€£πŸ’πŸ»
.
So here's where I'm at.... there's 20 weeks until Spring Classic 2018 and I'm not 100% sure that I'm going to compete.
.
I've been struggling with exhaustion and illness the last few weeks... didn't want to train, only wanted to sleep!
.
I took almost three weeks off and I'm beginning to feel back to myself having started back training yesterday (out of choice), and I actually enjoyed it. πŸ˜†πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ”₯ I'm going to start on a 4/5 week "experiment" with a new diet and training plan thanks to @nath.nels. If all goes well and I'm enjoying training again then I'll plough on into prep and give it 110%. If not, then I'll wait. I don't want to start prep for a show if my mind and body aren't ready πŸ™ƒ
.
I'd love to be on stage in April but at the end of the day the stage will always be there!
Let's see what happens in the next few weeks... πŸ‘™βœŒπŸΌ#justdoyou #onedayatatime #watchthisspace .

Finally got back horse riding today after not having sat on a horse for almost two years! I rode competitively for years and years when I was younger and it's something I truly love. πŸ΄πŸ’•

I really enjoy bodybuilding and competing but horses will always be my number one.

It does make my soul happy, so it's about time I got back into it. πŸ‡πŸ» Always make time for the things you love!! πŸ€—πŸ’•

Today is the first day in a very long time that I was able to wake up and not feel like I could use another 10 hours sleep, that I haven't relied on 6 coffees, two scoops of pre workout and energy drinks to keep me awake, and that I actually feel like a human instead of a zombie. β˜ οΈπŸ™…πŸ»
.
Am I concerned about missing training? Of course I am! But I'm more concerned about my health. 😌
A few more days of rest should do it... I'm getting an itch to go and smash my legs, so that's a good sign!
I'll still have six weeks left before I start prep, loaaaaadddss of time! 😝πŸ”₯πŸ‘™
