No I’m not drinking wee - I’m finishing off my night with a glass of water & ACV to keep bugs away and to act as a natural remedy for sore throats. I’ve no idea if it helps but it seems to be able to cure lots of things - I’m willing to give it a go after an evening singing! #keepthegermsaway #acvdrink

This came through the post for me yesterday ❀️ It’s from a beautiful soul! 😘 😘 😘 It’s got me thinking about the words I say over myself. Our words are powerful & they bring both life & death. We need to speak truth over ourselves until we believe it - and then speak some more!!! If I believe I’m loved & cherished then I operatefrom a place of security & love & my decisions and conversations come from a place of peace. If I say & believe the opposite... well I begin to operate from a place of insecurity & my actions won’t be reflective of someone at peace. 🌈 🌈 🌈 What words are you speaking over yourself? Do they bring life or death? And when other people see the gold in you, receive it & claim it for yourself - cos that’s a free gift!!! #wordsofaffirmation #wordsarepowerful #whoareyou #iambeautifulrevolution #speaktruth #fitness #healthmindset

Yesterday I was on FIRE!!!πŸ”₯had the most efficient pre-work time ever: coaching, housework, meal prep etc. You know when you’re running on your own good vibes & wondering if maybe you are actually superwoman?!?! Well today.... TOTAL OPPOSITE 🀣 as proven by the state of my hair & the fact that decaf was out of the question this morning!!! #happytuesday #weallhavethesedays #gettingmylifetogether #coffee

Portion control made EASY! Had these containers for a while but only just starting to use them to compliment my badass workouts! Dinner tonight is 1 portion of protein (red) 1 portion of veg (green) & 1 portion of carb (yellow) πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ #easypeasy #tasty #simplehealth #eatwell #fitness

DAY 1 of 80 is IN THE BAG! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ that was HARD! But I flipping loved it!!!! Day 14 of Whole 30 nearly done - there’s a lot of counting going on & maths is not my strong point! Recovering with a banana & running myself a bath! #soitbegins #pushyourself #fitnessjourney #eatwelltrainhard #epsomsaltbath #thisgirlcan #iwantmyabs #selflove

How has it taken me 13 days of Whole30 to eat an omelette?! Weird! #eggsareawhole30staple #whole30 #januarywhole30 #day13 #nearlyhalfway

I went for my first official weigh in since September 😲 That’s how little I care about the scales now! πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ BUT I’ve actually stayed pretty much the same weight!!! I used to be the person who weighed themselves EVERY SINGLE DAY & if I’d put on a pound then it would ruin my day! It is SOOOOOO unbelievably liberating to be friends & not enemies with my own body now! Consistency in working out, eating well, banishing shame & comparison, & consistency in being kind to myself. Thankyou @nickyweatherburn for weighing me in! #consistencywins #selflove #bekindtoyourself #progress #fitness #health #iambeautifulrevolution #whole30works

LEG DAY 🀨🀨🀨 I naively thought it might be a few gentle squats & lunges. I was very very very wrong. 😳😳😳 but I guess when my abs arrive, they’ll be lonely without my β€œcalves of steel” (As they were once referred to) So I gotta put the work in! #legday #alittleobsessed #feeltheburn #fitness #healthy #iamworthit #thisgirlcan #whole30

Cardio got me DRIPPING today! THAT. WAS. HARD! 😲😲😲 I have totally avoided cardio since before Christmas - a bit like how you avoid the person at work with the lurgy. But very pleased it’s done! A little concerned about how I’ll last the full 40 minute cardio sessions when 80DO starts 😬😬😬 #cardioforthewin #nailedit #fitnessjourney #motivation #healthylifestyle #thisgirlcan #iamworthit #compoundeffect #iambeautifulrevolution #eatrightnotshite
