When you hit that B U M P in the road 🚙 • Almost every other day for the past few weeks, one of my MDs at work has pulled me aside and asked me how I’m doing. Not how I’m doing, but HOW I’m doing. To be totally honest, I’ve been flat. My (irritatingly) effervescent personality hasn’t been where it usually is. Not to say I’m unhappy, far from, but I’ve just hit a bit of a bump in the road. • The most genuine part of this is that there are people, Senior people for that matter, who genuinely look out for others and care about your wellbeing. Work may bleed me dry more times than I’d like to admit, but it’s nice to know they care 🤗 p.s. yes somewhat irrelevant photo to caption (sue me 🙄) but I legit was not joking when I said these new @adidas #coalblack tights are the G.O.A.T. No backs were broken in the taking of this selfie. • #thisisabh #humpday #wcw #womancrushwednesday #workoutwednesday #adidasnextgentights @threestripesofadi #mentalhealth #smile #girlswholift #selfie #fblogger #girlswhosquat #ass #squats #legday #bootybuilding #health #instahealth #strengthtraining #stronggirl #training #instagood #fitfam #instafit #londonfitness #fitness #gym #gymmotivation #gymspiration

What are you A I M I N G for? 🎯 • 11 weeks left in 2018, still so much to accomplish. It’s quite a nice feeling when you wake up with a fire in your belly, that real get up n’ go attitude (or so I’ve heard 😏). But starting this week off on a positive high, jumping into any & every opportunity that comes my way, and *very* much looking forward to what it’ll bring 🤗 • #thisisabh #monday #mondaymotivation #motivation #newweek #goals #confident #hope #jump #photoshoot #positivevibes #positivity #girlswhosquat #abs #core #legs #brandambassador #health #instahealth #tone #stronggirl #training #instagood #fitfam #instafit #londonfitness #fitness #gym #gymmotivation #gymspiration

Comparison K I L L A ☠️ • Today I went for a casting for a pretty cool advert pitch, and the brief was *so* me. Honestly. Looking for a weight lifting-cum-spinning queen, she’s standing right here. (Mega LOL if I don’t get picked but anyway...). So there I am in the holding area, ready to go, and three other girls walk through the door also for the casting. All in good shape, crops out, the lot. And yet I couldn’t help but immediately feel “why am I here?! There’s no point me being here, clearly I’m not worthy”... • Now I must admit this happens to me on many an occasion, but hand on heart today was the first time I’ve ever noticed myself snap out of it, and completely. I don’t know how, or when, but I seem to be in a state of mind that I am far more confident in who I am and what I have to offer. If people don’t like or don’t want that, then cool: as Blair said, “Once men have tasted caviar it baffles me how they settle for catfish” 💅🏾 ANYWAY. Point is, things don’t happen overnight to change your perspective. It’s taken me many years (and many tears) to get here, but it’s a nice feeling when you arrive ☺️ Also thank you to my #oceanblue new @adidas leggings for making my profile shots for the camera look exxxtra 🙋🏾‍♀️ • #thisisabh #casting #comparison #selflove #selfconfidence #confident #heretocreate #adidas #adidasnextgentights @threestripesofadi #training #tone #rideordie #girlswhoride #acting #actress #filming #spinning #instahealth #girlswholift #instahealth #training #instagood #instagirl #fitfam #fitchick #instafit #instachick #londonfitness #fitness #gymmotivation #gymspiration

S H O O T for the moon ✨ • Disclaimer: anyone that has seen me play knows clear as day that I cannot shoot to save my life 😩😂 BUT! It’s been so good to be back on court with the girls. I’m definitely fortunate in that I can participate in the activities I love freely and when I want to. My first serious sport, Netball always has a special place in my heart. I had a brief stint playing Nets for a few seasons, and was fortunate enough to be asked to trial for England Nets 🏀but the GD life was for me. Saying that, after last night’s game, it does look like I’m etching more towards the centre court... Back playing ball tonight which I cannot wait! Last night was also my first night in my new #CoalBlack tights, which can I say I’ve never had so many people tell me my bum looks great so thank you @adidas you’re onto a winner already here 🏆 • #thisisabh #humpday #wcw #womancrushwednesday #netball #ball #shoot #score #goal #brand #adidasnextgentights @threestripesofadi #training #tone #glutes #booty #ass #girlswholift #instahealth #girlswhosquat #instahealth #training #instagood #instagirl #fitfam #fitchick #instafit #instachick #londonfitness #fitness #gymmotivation #gymspiration

H A P P Y as a clam 🦋 • I do genuinely think we have a healthy degree of control over our moods & emotions. After a rather crappy end to the weekend, I took myself to bed early, ready for a new week & all it brings. I’m also super excited to start collaborating with @adidas from this week, as we test out & reveal the next generation of leggings (aka my second skin, since I’m forever in sportswear 🙄🤷🏾‍♀️).

Breathe in. Breathe out. M O V E on ✌🏾 • People know I’m a control freak, and really I’m not even ashamed of it 😅 But there are some things no one can control, some situations you just have to deal with. Rather than getting worked up, upset, or unable to deal with the situation / task / person at hand: breathe in, breathe out, and move on. Life is waaayyy too short to be held back by things out of our control, so I’m all here for making the most of what I can. (P.s. the levels of upset I feel looking back on my tan is unparalleled. Winter Sun where u at 😭💔 I need a holidayyyy). • #thisisabh #tbt #throwback #throwbackthursday #adidas #adidasoriginals #palmsprings #bikinifit #beachbodyready #bikini #acehotel #instafit #swimming #swim #fitchick #fitfam #fitness #instagood #gym #gymmotivation #gymspiration #melanin #blackgirlmagic #tan #california #holiday #sunshine #coachella #holidaybod #beachbabe

D A N C E away the heartache 🧚🏾‍♀️ • Movement has always been a passion of mine, for as long as I can remember dancing in front of the mirrored hallway at home. There’s also an embarrassing story in there. Anyway all I ever wanted to was dance, and that’s possibly why I’m so connected to the music and sound experiences that come with fitness & movement. I was told by my doctor when I was 5 years old that I’d never be able to practice ballet, and my ankle injuries over the years haven’t helped matters — but that hasn’t stopped me from appreciating the beauty of this dance. • #thisisabh #worldballetday #ballet #ballerina #barre #englishnationalballet #dance #dancefit #dancer #gymmotivation #traintuesday #bbg #gymspiration #movement #instahealth #strong #muscle #training #balance #instagood #instagirl #fitfam #fitchick #stronggirl #instafit #instachick #londonfitness #fitnessmotivation

H 1 D E & seek ☺️ • Hey whatsup hello hiya soz I’ve been super mega quiet over the past few days. I think I sometimes fail to anticipate how MANIC my life is — or rather can be. But despite the stupidly drunken late nights, ridiculously early starts, hectic days, smiles, sweat (LOTS of sweat), the past few days have actually been glorious, pushing me out of my comfort zone to both do and see different things, and really the best end to Q3 that I could have asked for — thank you @un1t_london for rounding it off niiiicely 👌🏾💦 Exceptionally excited to see off September, welcome in October, and celebrate the last few months of my best year yet ✨ • #thisisabh #sunday #sundayfunday #weekend #weekendvibes #grateful #happy #smile #girl #newmonth #toneitup #goals #girlswhoride #rideordie #legs #legday #spinning #fitness #bbg #health #instahealth #stronggirl #training #instagood #fitfam #instafit #londonfitness #fitness #gym #gymmotivation #gymspiration

Y O U matter 👣 • I think it’s sometimes super easy to think that you’re just another person, another number or statistic. I find that’s particularly the case when I’m just one of 120,000 people that work for my organisation and my traders talk in yards (aka billions) and I lose track of the zeros 😩🤷🏾‍♀️ • Thank you to @wittraining @witfitnesslondon and the whole @nike gang for reminding me that I’m not just a number.

Don’t look back with regret, look F O R W A R D with hope ✨ • Another new day, and the final week of September. I really don’t know where 2018 is going, but I remember the nervousness I felt at the end of 2017: I’d had what was my best year yet, and I was so fearful of what was to come. Sometimes I worry that I’ve not done all I could or should, but there’s no point looking back — ain’t no time to be Lot’s wife! The future is forward, and I for one can’t wait! • #thisisabh #monday #mondaymotivation #motivation #newweek #goals #fear #regret #hope #peach #photoshoot #fblogger #girlswhosquat #ass #squats #legs #bootybuilding #health #instahealth #tone #stronggirl #training #instagood #fitfam #instafit #londonfitness #fitness #gym #gymmotivation #gymspiration

Wake up and S M E L L the rain 💦 • I actually love the rain, there’s something about it that gives me peace. It’s like a weird calming presence. And whilst it does mean I’m cancelling all my plans today to bake brownies & binge 🤤 the best change is brought about by rain — and I’m talking rest day. I work my body pretty damn hard, not just in the gym, but with work and emotional stresses, I wonder sometimes how I keep going. • Yesterday I had one of the toughest rides in my life @psyclelondon with the incroyable @marion_pearce: a powerful 60mins that saw me go through every emotion under the sun. Yes, I full on snot cried to David Guetta 🙃 but I needed something that emotionally potent to bring it out of me. And today, I’m giving my body the break it truly needs before another week of mayhem.

Good L U C K Chuck 🍀 • I have to give an extra special shout out to this man right here @snkrish who is running the Berlin Marathon today for his 40th birthday. In spite of all the stresses you’ve had to deal with in the past year — family matters, the exceptionally late nights at work trying to sort out Brexit drama (lol not lol), and me nagging you about not booking classes on time 🙄 — you’ve still committed to doing this. I am a very proud lil sis today, and very grateful we met two years ago (although NGL I don’t even know how). The VERY best of luck today, run like you’re about to cop the freshest pair of Air Max 🏃🏾‍♂️ • #thisisabh #sunday #marathon #berlinmarathon #run #runners #runnersofinstagram #ukrunchat #berlin42 #brexit #running #sundayrunday #proud #goals #legday #legs #health #instahealth #training #instagood #fitfam #instafit #londonfitness #fitness #gym #gymmotivation #gymspiration #motivation

S E L F ( I E ) love 💕 • After quite possibly the longest week in September I’ve ever faced, I needed to take a step back. A lot of what I do, in the day job, side hustle, hobbies & public speaking, requires me to extend myself to others. I love every aspect of what I do, but sometimes you need to look after yourself & put yourself first yano? • So a well needed time out this morning, with an early yoga class with @marciasharpyoga to get me back in touch with allllll those feels. With the rest of the day to myself, I get a hot minute to sit back, relax, and overthink 🙃 • #thisisabh #saturday #weekendvibes #restday #chill #selflove #peace #yoga #yogi #yogaeverdamnday #zen #yogini #strongnotskinny #bbg #health #instahealth #training #instagood #instagirl #fitfam #fitchick #instafit #instachick #londonfitness #fitness #gym #gymmotivation #gymspiration #motivation #goals

Here to C R E A T E 🙋🏾‍♀️ • I can finally let the cat out of the bag! I am BEYOND excited to announce this. I get the odd joke from friends about why I have this IG account; it wasn’t to get rich quick or become a star — although if that ever happens, I’m all for it 😂 I’ve always had a passion for sports & fitness, so when a brand like @adidas slides into my DMs and asks me to be one of the 25 woman globally that they want, how on earth could I say no?!

Time O U T ✖️ • It felt so good to have somewhat of a lie in this morning, not have to stress about getting up early and heading to set. It’s been a crazy old summer, and September is usually the time when my life gets all the more hectic 😖 BUT here’s to taking more control and making sure I schedule some me time amongst the mayhem! • My training has been pretty much non-existent over the past 3 weeks so I’m very much looking forward to getting my sweat on!

Not Q U I T E what they seem 🧐 • (Somewhat) self-indulgent post but bear with me: the past 10 days or so, I’ve been in a rut. Life, work and relationships have perpetuated it moreso, but I’ve been in a rut. I’ve felt it coming for some time but I guess as September was approaching, it got worse and worse. I’ve been putting myself down whilst trying to deal with everything, comfort eating for the stress and heightened emotions, complaining that I’m eating too much because of the stress, getting upset, eating more, cancelling any and every gym session because what’s the point you’re putting on more fat might as well start getting the layers ready for Winter. Biggest LOL. • So I forced myself to go to @flykick , no matter how tired, unhappy, heavy, bloated and miserable I felt. Did I kick ass in class? Most probably not let’s be honest haha. But that’s not the point: the point is, I took this picture wanting to use it as a kick up the backside to get back on the bandwagon. But really and truly, it’s only now that I look at this and realise there’s actually nothing for me to chastise myself over. I may be slightly softer than I usually am or would like; but have I gained monumental weight that my health is now in jeopardy? No Abs 🙄 simmer down. So here’s to all the times we beat ourselves up for no reason: take a step back and look at yourself through a different lens. (Ps. I’m not saying I’m miraculously happy again lol but baby steps yano). • #thisisabh #traintuesday #transformationtuesday #mindset #perspective #selfie #body #dysmorphia #bodyconfidence #confident #boxing #hiitbox #kickboxing #boxfit #girlswhobox #londonfitness #instachick #strong #fitchick #bbg #bbgcommunity #fitfam #fitness #instagood #gym #gymspiration

Without C H A N G E there is no growth 🌱 • Summer’s drawing to an end, life is transitioning into yet another new stage. As each phase comes & goes, I’m having to increasingly learn that if I don’t adapt and change, I can’t grow. We bang on about how it’s okay to not be okay, especially when things are changing — really, I don’t think Society deep down believe that, but such is life.

Gym T H E R A P Y ☮️ • I find it crazy how impacted I can still get by certain comments people make. It’s funny, you build yourself up and up and up, and yet sometimes just one sentence can make you feel like half your world has been torn down. I could have moped around, I could have cried (loljk deffo cried a little lol sue me I’m human 🤷🏾‍♀️): but instead, I said a little prayer, calmed my mind, and went to the gym. With even just the smallest workout, it amazes me how much of a release I find exercise. I know there’s a lot to be said about that, but having a reminder of its impact comforts me to know I can keep going.

Just keep B R E A T H I N ✨ • I took a couple days off work last week to enjoy the Birthday properly, and it felt amazing. But this morning, I decided to pree my emails before I got to my desk and lowkey started hyperventilating as my mailbox crashed from too many DMs sliding through 🙃 instead of getting frustrated & worked up, I just stopped and took a breath. So simple. So effective. Probably has something to do with the fact that I’ve listened to Sweetener on repeat all weekend (lolwut), but also possibly from putting life into context.

Birthday S H R E D 🧀 • I should probbo disclaimer up front that I do love my body (nay, I think it’s fcuking fab) and this was out of mere intrigue — but about six weeks ago, I decided to start a mini “shred” (or cut, who bloody knows tbh lol). Of course there were some vanity clauses directing me to this: I’d put on a lot more fluff post hospital stint and it wasn’t budging, I’d had a bit of a crappy breakup (for want of a better description), and I did that whole memory lane thing where I got sad that I don’t look how I used to — y’know, bc my body changed from aging. Life happens. • ANYWAY knowing how easily my body adapts, I decided to test my own will power and see what would happen if I max’d my daily calorie limit to 1300kcals - predominantly by lowering my carb intake but my main focus really was upping my greens wherever possible. Now don’t come at me or telling me off 🙄 I’m not here for that right now. As I said, I wanted to experiment what difference it would make over a small period of time if I maintained my training 4-5 times a week but took a massive chunk off my kcals. I’ve purposely not bothered weighing myself bc every set of scales hates me ✌🏾but the difference I’ve noticed physically is astounding. It’s not been easy, particularly with how crazy work is at the moment, but I settled into the new routine fairly quickly. I’m beyond pleased with how I both look & feel, and I’m glad it shows. • This whole process has also taught me a lot about my snacking habits and how unnecessary they really are (but NGL I will always be chief snack queen 👸🏾). I’ll probably keep a few days a week on the lower end, bc in fact I felt far more focussed at work in this routine; but life is for enjoying and I’ve got half a @hummingbbakery red velvet cake to finish so YOLO ✌🏾happy birthday weekend to meeeeee. • #thisisabh #bday #birthday #bdaygirl #thened #outout #shred #shredding #shredded #cut #cutting #fat #fatloss #weightloss #loseweight #bbg #bbgcommunity #abs #instafit #instachick #fitchick #fitfam #fitness #instagood #gym #gymmotivation #gymspiration #stronggirl #muscle #melanin

The best R O U T E S are the ones you haven’t ridden 🚴🏾‍♀️ • Birthdays are a funny old time of year for me. They force me to actually stop for more than 18 seconds, and think about what the past twelve months have meant to me. There are things I’ve achieved, more than I could have prayed about or dreamt if I’m honest with you — and that pressure does impact me. I’m constantly wanting to better myself, do more, be more, and yet how can I have done so much at such a young age when I have the rest of my working life ahead of me..?! And then there are the things that I haven’t done, the friendships & relationships that didn’t work out, the goals I had to bypass for the sake of my health & sanity. They disappoint me all the more, because I hate thinking about what could have been... • Two years ago when this snap was taken, I was in a *very* different and very dark place. To think of everything I’ve been through in the last 24 months only encourages me to keep going. So as the rain is pouring in the background, this year I’m choosing to let go of that pressure. To take life and all its opportunities as they come (and go), and to make sure I put my health & happiness first. You only live once. Genuinely, #YOLO, so make the most of it 💕 • #thisisabh #tbt #throwback #throwbackthursday #bday #birthday #goals #healthy #smile #health #instahealth #training #balance #instagood #instagirl #fitfam #fitchick #stronggirl #instafit #instachick #fitness #gym #gymmotivation #gymspiration #girlswhoride #girlswhospin #spinning #spin

About to B U R S T 🎉 • As if counting down to my birthday wasn’t enough to be excited for (disclaimer: I don’t actually enjoy celebrating my birthday lol 🙄), yesterday I received quite possibly the best early birthday present I could ask for. I may complain and be exhausted 24/7, turn up late to events or have to cancel last min (soz), but I’m one of those workaholics who loves their job. This year, professional ABH has started to see those benefits being reaped, and I hope to continue the same. You get out what you put in, in all aspects in life: don’t expect to reap a harvest if you were too lazy to sow in winter. So here’s a late motivation Monday lol, mindset transformation Tuesday, and all the acronymous days of the week — always work hard, be diligent, and enjoy the fruits of your labour. You deserve it 💕 • #thisisabh #motivation #goals #success #traintuesday #transformationtuesday #allidoiswin #happy #legs #weightloss #fatloss #healthy #smile #health #instahealth #training #balance #instagood #instagirl #fitfam #fitchick #stronggirl #instafit #instachick #fitness #sanfrancisco #goldengatebridge #britsinla #sanfran #fit

Don’t think just F E E L ♨️ • I would say I woke up feeling hungover AF — but that would imply I slept last night. I totally forgot I had booked FUS1ON @un1t_london this morning so when I was knocking back the red wine & gin & prosecco last night, setting an alarm to get my sweat on was the LAST thing on my mind 🤦🏾‍♀️ but that’s what I did. In my standard moaning state comparing who was more hungover, @chloe_inmotion told me “don’t think, just feel”. Four words. And those four words saw me hit a new PB on the rower at 1.30 🙋🏾‍♀️🚣🏾‍♀️ Will today be a struggle? Absolutely. But was class worth it? You bloody betcha! Happy Sunday poppets, hope y’all ain’t feeling as raw as I am 🙃 (ps. Crotch watch hit a WHOLE new level of sweat today, idk whether to be proud or ashamed...). • #thisisabh #cardioishardio #hungover #hangover #legs #legday #smile #girlswhosquat #girlswhorow #rower #rowing #personalbest #girlswholift #instafit #stronggirl #instachick #fitchick #fitfam #fitness #instagood #gym #gymmotivation #gymbabe #gymspiration #weightlifting #weighttraining

The Q U I E T E R you become the more you can hear 👂🏾 • I’m not sure if it because I’m soon going to have to tick a new age category box (😭), or because I’ve been so overworked, but recently I’ve needed more silence. Not necessarily lack of noise, but within myself — not responding but simply taking it all in. My body is changing, my circumstances adapting, and the best way to adjust is to listen more. Instead of throwing myself about day in day out at the gym, I’m paying more attention to when my body is telling me to simmer down and relax, or when those around me just need someone to vent to. Making the most of being there for myself and people, and enjoying the down time it’s allowing me 🧘🏾‍♀️ • #thisisabh #peace #calm #zen #listen #selflove #mentalhealth #stress #yoga #yogi #leo #leoseason #legs #legday #smile #laugh #girlswhoride #girlswholift #instafit #stronggirl #instachick #fitchick #fitfam #fitness #instagood #gym #gymmotivation #gymspiration #melanin #weighttraining

Laughter is the B E S T medicine (but Calpol’s pretty dope too) 🌡 • After the best start to my week watching two dear friends wed one another, it got me thinking about life & love. There is so much (unnecessary) pressure on us to look our best and make ourselves as attractive as possible, to get more likes, more swipes, more attention from others. Now don’t get me wrong, appreciation isn’t inherently a bad thing, but if that craving for attention is the root cause driving your behaviour, then something’s gotta change. As I’m writing this, my podcast just started talking about how our negative comparisons to one another actually *hinders* our blessings — so I know this is a timely message for me also. Here’s to all the qualities that make us different, like @luorr’s need to be close to me at all times, or my chuckle that sounds like the Laughing Cow advert 🙃 • #thisisabh #wcw #womancrushwednesday #humpday #comparison #selflove #love #leo #leoseason #wedding #love #legs #legday #smile #laugh #girls #bff #girlswholift #instafit #instachick #fitchick #fitfam #fitness #instagood #gym #gymmotivation #gymspiration #melanin #weighttraining

Be your O W N motivation 🆗 • What goes up must come down, and after a VERY fun Saturday, there was only one direction the rest of my weekend was heading. The fires of life, both literal and metaphorical, shift things into perspective. And rather than chasing after or striving for superficial things that aren’t worth the cause, how about going for the stuff that really matters? The matter that is *inside*. So as I draw another week closer to the birthday, I draw all the people and things that I love closer still; and use them to be the reason I get up every morning to do what I do ♥️ • #thisisabh #monday #motivation #motivationmonday #cyclehouse #girlswhospin #weightlifting #weho #LA #westhollyworld #lion #leo #leoseason #girlswhoft #cali #coachella #california #chella #britsinla #instafit #instachick #fitchick #fitfam #fitness #instagood #gym #gymmotivation #gymspiration

Who do YOU think you are🕺🏾 • Last night, a friend and I were supposed to head to the Spice Girls show (lol), but decided to go for dinner & drinks instead (lol x2). We ended up doing the Myers-Briggs personality tests (lol living on the wyld side 🙋🏻‍♂️🤟🏾) but I’d never been so surprised a series of questions could tell me so accurately who and what I am - in case you didn’t realise, I’m basically a black Blair Waldorf 💅🏾 • But it got us thinking about our behavioural habits and how they impact our relationship; I crave stability, base my decisions on rational thinking, and struggle with spontaneity (again, lol). Revisiting your weak spots can only make you stronger — and that’s true both inside the gym and out. Working on my niggle spots is the sure fire was I can build myself to be the strongest, happiest, and most importantly best version of myself. • #thisisabh #traintuesday #myersbriggs #executive #blairwaldorf #gossipgirl #spicegirls #summer #kettlebells #workout #gymrat #sun #beachbody #stronggirl #sweat #girlswholift #instachick #fitchick #health #fitfam #fitness #instagood #gym #gymspiration #instahealth #fitlife

I had plans for today, to smash out a big session behind the bar, go for a walk, get some life admin done — and instead I’ve eaten half a jar of peanut butter and watched an entire season of Gossip Girl. Sometimes you just need to take a step back and embrace the calm. Just before another week of mayhem.

Turning up the H E A T 🔥 • Heatwave come thruuu, if only it were acceptable to live in a bikini 🙃 I’ve recently decided to take a slightly different approach to my eating & training, and monitor the impact it has on my body. I’ve always been the person who never restricts consumption nor necessarily counts or tracks food - but knowing how quickly my body responds to even the slightest change in training or even food, I’m interested to see what difference it’ll make. Also if I can keep this up by my birthday, then that’ll be a surprise for everyone involved 😩😂 happy hump day! • #thisisabh #wcw #womencrushwednesday #humpday #diet #healthyeating #intuitiveeating #bikini #bikinifit #beachbody #la #britsinla #weho #westhollywood #motivation #girlswholift #muscle #tone #instachick #fitchick #california #holiday #fitfam #fitness #instagood #gym #gymspiration #instahealth #melanin #blackgirlmagic

Learn by E X P E R I E N C E 👩🏾‍🏫 • We often forget that before anyone knew how to do something or excelling in a particular skill, you had to start from somewhere. Every single day at work as more & more piles on my desk and my responsibilities are growing taller than Ben Nevis, I’ve got to remind myself that I’m not going to be a master immediately: practice, experience, failure and growth are all necessary requirements.

The importance of F I N I S H I N G well 🏃🏾‍♀️ • As much as everyone knows I HATE running, dare I say this year was my most enjoyable 🤫 The highlight of my Summer every year (except for my birthday obvo 🙄) is the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge 🏃🏾‍♀️hundreds of Investment Banks, Asset Management firms and competitors battle it out over a "5.6km" (LIES) race through Battersea Park, typically on the hottest day of the year 😰 I somehow blagged a place for the 4th year running (lol no pun intended 🙄) - and after the shocker that was 2017, I was determined to make this year my best yet. • Did I run my fastest? Nope. But did I take the race at my own pace, not compare my speed to others, and make the most of the opportunity to support my Bank and challenge myself? Damn right. I’m not naturally built to run distance, and I’m much more comfortable on a spin bike or throwing some heavies on an Oly platform; but I embrace every challenge I can to celebrate just what this body can do — so thank you bod for getting me through yet another gruesome run.

Take a S T E P back 🧘🏾‍♀️ • And just like that, another week is upon us. The rest of the world ventured down to @lululemonuk‘s #sweatlife festival, but I decided to take a back seat this year. Whilst a small part of me is lowkey gutted I missed it, I needed this weekend to realise the other things that are important to me, my health & my happiness. Good food, friends from times past, adequate downtime and the odd spontaneous night out are things I most often forget are vital. And whilst my work life remains out of sync, it’s all the more important that I reach some sort of balance.

Play Hard, Work H A R D E R 💪🏾 • Yes I know it’s supposed to be the other way around, but go with me... I’ve always been brought up to prioritise working hard above all else. Deffo meant I was the most boring kid at school and pretty much until I got to University. I then spent 4 years reversing that, making the most of the play and working hard — but not that hard. • As I edge past my mid-20s, I realise this is the #balance I never managed to get right 🤷🏾‍♀️ instead of enjoying my youth (lol) I’m normally at work, or at home plotting some new scheme like the Blair Waldorf I am. I’m not necessarily saying it’s a bad thing, but my awareness of this imbalance is what’s most important. As I’ve been recovering over past month, I’ve been able to play a little more — and I’ve LOVED it. And whilst I’m now aiming to get my body back in optimal shape, it’s definitely a case of less play, more work. Just find what fits you & go with it. • #thisisabh #workhardplayhard #midweekmotivation #motivation #wcw #womancrushwednesday #befitlondon2018 #smile #girl #blairwaldorf #reebokwomen #reebok #training #instahealth #weightloss #tone #girlswholift #strongnotskinny #sweat #instagood #instagirl #fitfam #fitchick #instafit #instachick #londonfitness #fitness #gymmotivation #gymspiration

S M I L E - it’s Monday 😃 • If ever I needed 72hrs to completely change my (life) mood around, it’s been this weekend. Friday, I was awarded one of the most prestigious awards in my profession; judging by my reaction when it was announced (I burst out crying like I’d won a Grammy hahaha), you could tell I wasn’t expecting that outcome. Saturday, I had the rare pleasure of just *relaxing* in my home with friends: cooking, laughing, and just enjoying life — something I don’t get to do so often. And yesterday, I got behind the bar and I lifted. BOY did I lift. I’m so happy to have been taking my recovery slowly, because I would never have had such a successful strength session yesterday. (S/o to the man who hollered GWAN GURL when I racked up 70kg for my back squat 🤙🏾). • Having felt a bit crappy for weeks on end, it’s such a blessing to have joy to celebrate. I always say you need to experience the lows to appreciate the highs. So on this sunny Monday morning while 90% of ya are trapped in an office for the next 11hrs (lol), let’s keep smiling xo • EDIT: got to work & found out I won another award. June, you’ve become my fave month! • #thisisabh #monday #mondaymotivation #smile #girl #puma #strengthtraining #training #instahealth #weightloss #tone #girlswholift #girlswhosquat #sweat #instagood #instagirl #fitfam #fitchick #instafit #instachick #londonfitness #fitness #gymmotivation #gymspiration #winning #blackgirlmagic

R&R, and T H E N some 🙇🏾‍♀️ • I must admit I’ve had such a lull these past two months. Unable to train because of illness, overstretched at work, trying to stay social yet not miss an episode of Love Island — it’s been tough! But (small) victories like yesterday’s award remind me that everything I do has a purpose, and everyone has something to give. So whilst I work on rebalancing my life again & slowly working my fitness levels back up, here’s to life 🥂 keep it coming! • #thisisabh #restday #chill #winner #awards #rowers #girlswhorow #crossfit #wittraining #whateverittakes #nikelondon #instahealth #weightloss #tone #girlswholift #girlswhosquat #training #instagood #instagirl #fitfam #fitchick #instafit #instachick #londonfitness #fitness #gymmotivation #gymspiration

Failure is N O T an option 🙅🏾‍♀️ • You know when you have something you’re so super excited but also terrified at the thought of it? Yup. Last night I made my return to my favourite place @un1t_london, and as excited as I was to be pushed to my limit & have some form of team competitive spirit, I was petrified. The past 6-8 weeks have been so difficult for me, having to put something so important to me on hold for the sake of my health. And whilst I’ve been trying to ease myself gently back into exercising, I must remember I only left hospital 10 days ago, and I’ve not been able to ascertain the true extent of my condition when I push my body. • Not wanting to let my team or myself down, I probably went a little too hard in Engine last night; and yet, the impact of my problems made me feel like a failure. I couldn’t give my best because I wasn’t (and still am not) at my best. But that doesn’t mean I am a failure, by no means. Life is never a linear path, nor a series of constant peaks — you’ve gotta go through some lows before you see the highs. SO. Yesterday may not have gone how I wished, but it won’t stop me. Getting my strength & fitness levels back up to what it was is going to be difficult, but I must embrace this journey and the lessons that come with it 🤗 (oh, and imma be posting catfish snaps until my bod gets back to its optimum. Sorry not sorry). • #thisisabh #midweekmotivation #motivation #failure #success #wcw #womancrushwednesday #health #sorrynotsorry #instahealth #weightloss #tone #girlswholift #training #instagood #instagirl #fitfam #fitchick #instafit #instachick #londonfitness #fitness #gymmotivation #gymspiration

E A S Y does it 😇 • Monday, you came around too quickly! One week into gradually getting myself back on track health wise, and I’m really trying to be kind to my body. I never get enough sleep and overwork myself in the gym. So I’ve been very careful to not go to any classes (just yet) and when I do, I’ll try not to go HAM straight off the bat 😉 So new week, let’s do it! • #thisisabh #mondaymotivation #newweek #goals #restday #ham #angelbaby #instahealth #weightloss #training #tone #glutes #booty #ass #peachy #girlswholift #girlswhosquat #instahealth #training #instagood #instagirl #fitfam #fitchick #instafit #instachick #londonfitness #fitness #gymmotivation #gymspiration

What makes you B E A U T I F U L ❣️ • I went for dinner with a friend the other night, and whilst I was somewhat jokingly confessing to my onset imposter syndrome, they said something that really hit me: “you are so strong, it’s beautiful to admire”... Now whilst they may not have been talking about my physical strength — though we did get on to our lifting programmes to help me crush my 100kg deadlift PB — it made me think all the more about my emotional strength & resiliency. • I fully appreciate that I often come across as such a confident, determined young professional when people meet me; but it has taken years for me to develop this resiliency, and it’s something I’m still learning now. Being comfortable in my own skin isn’t something that first came naturally to me. I’ve always been very open about how I used to be body shamed for my frame: I quite literally was born with biceps; I have broad shoulders and a highly muscular physique, and could probably squat heavier than the average bloke 🤙🏾 But my emotional strength to deal with that negativity that I’ve faced over time has helped me channel into developing my physical strength to become the best, strongest, and happiest version of me — in all senses. We only have one life on this Earth, so why not make the most of it? • I am so proud to be supporting @womeninsport_uk & @britishwl today and everyday, with their #StrongIsNotASize campaign. Strength means something different to everyone: but the beauty in strength is finding what it means to you, and allowing it to help create the best you. So here’s to strong women: may we know them, be them, and raise them ♥️ thank you to my girl @bicepsandbronzer for asking me to be a part of such a powerful message. • #thisisabh #womeninsport #britishweightlifting #strong #strength #stronggirl #strongisthenewskinny #muscle #tone #physique #mentalhealth #mha #beauty #bblogger #weightlifting #girlswholift #girlswhosquat #instahealth #training #instagood #instagirl #fitfam #fitchick #instafit #instachick #londonfitness #fitness #gymmotivation #gymspiration

Make like a banana & S P L I T 🍌 • So I had my first day back in the gym after the longest month in my liiiiife, and in typical ABH fashion, I had to be reminded not to overdo it 🙄 (lol). I tried hard not to over-exert myself but by the time I’d arisen from my Love Island coma, my thighs were burning more than chub rub on a hot summers day. Anyway. Cracked our the foam roller to have a good old stretch, and gave myself this morning off just so my body can easily adjust to the old norm. Cultivating the habit to stretch properly after a workout is so important, and it’s probably the reason why I’ve stopped having such intense Charley Horse over the past few years. If you know, you know 👀 OH! And happy 3rd birthday to my first love❣️ Psycle CW @psyclelondon !! • #thisisabh #traintuesday #stretch #splits #flexible #gymnastics #spinning #girlswhoride #girlswhospin #weightloss #fatloss #exercise #smile #health #instahealth #training #instagood #instagirl #fitfam #fitchick #stronggirl #instafit #instachick #londonfitness #fitness #gymmotivation #gymspiration

B A C K in the game 🙋🏾‍♀️ • 30 solid days of not lifting a single thing, this exercise ban has definitely been far more mentally challenging than I ever thought it could! I cannot tell you how great it felt to not only step into a gym this morning, but to just *move* my body. I’ve most definitely got a long way to go to get my strength back and shift all this extra lugging I’ve acquired 👀 but I’m beyond excited for this new journey!

Golden O L D I E S 👵🏾 • Spending today chaperoning at Med School open day has found me chilling with the parents as they fall asleep in the canteen. Lol. But it got me thinking about the journeys we go through in life, the fresh starts, the challenges, the changes and sacrifices we make for the people & things we care about. • Two years ago I was so close to leaving the Corporate world and become a fitness instructor & PT. I didn’t, and in all honesty I don’t regret that choice for a single second lol — I’ve been so blessed with my professional career and I still have so much more to give. But what the passing of time and reflection brings is that opportunity to call to mind my discipline, steadfastness and that hunger in my belly for something other than a chocolate bar 🙄 I’m so nervous yet excited to ease myself back into training next week after a solid 30 days off. I may have lost some strength and gained a lot of weight that needs shifting; but this new chapter looks to be an exciting one — and I for one cannot wait! • #thisisabh #saturday #homies #reflection #mood #throwback #motivation #spinning #girlswhospin #girlswhoride #ridersofinstagram #weightloss #health #instahealth #training #balance #tone #instagood #instagirl #fitfam #fitchicks #stronggirl #instafit #instachicks #londonfitness #fitness #gym #gymmotivation #gymspiration #bbg

All aboard the B U D A boat 🛥 • The long weekend may be over for some but Budapest is still live right now! Having been told by my doctors not to do “any strenuous exercise for the next 6-10 days” (lol), I’m starting to reach the tipping point where I can’t justify having carbs on carbs on carbs and not looking 6 months preggo 🤰🏾Back to Londres soon, and hopefully back on the bandwagon even sooner 🙏🏾🙌🏾 Happy 4-day week, poppets! • #thisisabh #longweekend #bankholiday #henparty #buda #budapest #budababes #boat #cruise #traintuesday #health #instahealth #training #muscle #tone #instagood #instagirl #fitfam #gaintrain #fitchick #stronggirl #instafit #instachick #londonfitness #fitness #gym #gymmotivation #gymspiration #fit
