"Just have a bit, it won't hurt!"


We know it won't hurt. But it's the principle behind that. If we gave in to every temptation then we wouldn't be where we are today.

We love our family and friends but sometimes they don't understand out fitness journey... and that's ok.

 

Here are my top 5 tips on how to deal with family and friends who may not understand a healthy lifestyle change.

1. Remembering your why.

You chose to make this change to your lifestyle for a reason. Wheth...

If we accept the fact that we can't do something, or it's too hard, then we've set ourself a limit.
🔺
I never thought I'd be able to do a chin up and just accepted it. One day as a joke, I got my brother to boost me up and help me do one, but then realized I was actually pretty close to doing it by myself.
🔺
Since that moment I removed all doubt and realized I am capable to achieve more than the limits I place on myself.

Who actually says it's too hard? Or is it a thoug...

If you want to be happy in life, you need to put yourself first. The world is full of people that society makes us feel like we have to impress in order to fit in. 

From a young age we aren't taught how to be an individual and those who are different get picked on.

Growing up, most of us take the safe route, the 9-5 job, holding back our true thoughts, hanging around people that deep down we don't actually connect with... 

We are unique, and should be able to live our life how...

Can't believe there's only a month left of 2016! And what a year it was.

This how my different lifestyles have changed my body. From left to right:
🔹December '15: Before ever prepping for a comp.
🔹May: Just after my second comp.
🔹August: After a holiday full of partying.
🔹December: Current. Not dieting to lose weight, but eating more of the right foods aiming to put on muscle.


My wardrobe can't keep up 😅 but I wouldn't have it any other way. Life is all about different ch...

If anyone is feeling a bit lost post comp I just want to take a moment to speak about the reality of it all.. well my reality anyway 😊


Unfortunately comp bodies aren't sustainable, no matter what anyone says or posts on social media. Nor is it healthy to maintain such a low body fat percentage or calorie intake.


Of course I'd LOVE to look like how I did on the left.. life was awesome, I had just won two comps, I was getting compliments left right and centre.. BUT I was exhau...

When I woke up today, of course I was ecstatic from yesterday, but I did feel a bit lost! The freedom of being able to just relax today, let go and eat whatever I want sounds amazing in theory, but was quite daunting 🙁 


Last night I didn't actually want a cheat meal, it kinda felt wrong.. The fact I could go out to dinner and not count macros was exciting enough 😁 so I enjoyed my favourite meal at Hunky Dory 😍👌🏽 

Today I decided I will compete again in April, so havi...

I just wanted to share some facts about my favourite form of exercise:
🏋🏽 Weight training!!! 🏋🏽

 

Women, it will NOT make you bulky 🚫‼️

Naturally, the average woman doesn't produce enough testosterone to cause excessive muscle growth.


If you ever appear to be gaining size, it's because you are putting on muscle but are yet to lose the fat surrounding the muscle (which will come with weight training combined with healthy eating). As you can see in the picture, fat takes u...
