~Body. Mind. Soul. ~When I started with the boys at B2U back in February, I started for a mixture of reasons... ~I was fresh out of a break up, going through that emotional rollercoaster… all the ‘am I good enough’s’, all the self doubts. ~So naturally, I turned to exercise. Because I know that makes me FEEL GOOD. I feel better when exercising, that’s just a fact! ~EGO says - Yes! Let’s get ripped! Let’s get fit and sexy! ~But really, I turned to exercise as a way of dealing with all of the emotions I couldn’t express… I’d lost 8kgs. I wasn’t coping with the enormity of emotions, physical sensations and stresses that were going on in my body. ~Exercise was a great way for me to change that! Shift that! TRANSFORM all of that! ~Back in February… I couldn’t lift a 3kg dumbbell in my right arm post injury. I couldn’t do a push up. I couldn’t do any form of weight lifting. I definitely couldn’t do a chin up, or a pull up! I couldn’t even hold myself, hanging off that bar! ~I am now probably the most fit I have ever been in my life! And with the change and transformation of the STRENGTH within my body, the physical fitness I’ve experienced… ~Came a STRENGTH of MIND. ~Came a STRENGTH of HEART. ~Came an Emotional STRENGTH and FORTITUDE. ~I look at this photo, and realise that the transformation of this year hasn’t just been of the body! But body, mind and soul! ~It totally changed my life! And I am so grateful!
BAREFEET Good or bad for you?? Now I'm not saying going barefoot is for everyone and there are definitely some contraindications eg. Diabetes, vascular diseases, auto immune conditions, vestibular conditions BUT...... Our feet were made to adapt. Mostly on the uneven terrain. Our feet have hundreds of thousands of RECEPTORS which tell our brain to soften or stiffen our feet as a protection mechanism. It tells us whether the surface is sharp, unstable, hot, soft so that we can ADAPT to our terrain. Over time our muscles, tendons and joints (we have hundreds of ligaments, 30 odd joints and 1/4 of our body's skeleton in our feet) will strengthen and minimise our risk or injury and improve the efficiency of our gait cycle.
What frustrates me the most as a clinician is how much we forget the foot. We moisturise our legs, but forget the foot, we train leg day or bi's and back day at the gym, but forget the foot. Have you ever in your life considered training your foot strength???? NO WONDER I see so many ankle sprains, plantar fasciitis, achilles problems...... Give your feet a sensory treat, get them activated, feel the different surfaces and enjoy the ability to adapt!
So the message here is, go as often as you can barefoot, if you are unsure if you can, consult your podiatrist or GP.

Last 10 cals of:
10 rounds of 10 GHD sit ups and 10cal assault bike.
Carrying wrist and ankle injuries that mean I can't jump, press, snatch or handstand is a little concerning given there are 3 comps in the next 3 weeks. Fortunately there's a way of working round everything in training though, so I will just continue to assault bike til i die.
I guess I'll just keep my fingers crossed that the comp workouts don't involve very much errrrrrrr crossfit. And if I survive the next few weeks, it's going to be a Christmas of rest and rehab.
🤕 Well, good news & bad news, #gramfam.
Bad news, Broke both arm bones at the wrist riding dirt bikes✊. Having surgery!
Good news, I am getting 500% more cuddles. 💜🐱🐾 It is SO HARD TO DO THINGS WITH ONE HAND.
Things you should try doing with one hand:
Putting pants on
Changing a toilet paper roll
Washing a dish
Putting a hair clip in your hair
Tying a knot
Folding clothes and hanging them on hangers. Actually just doing laundry at all
Opening a brand new jar
Anyway while I'm healing and taking it easy, send me your injury stories! I've got 4-6 weeks of healing to do.
Now before y’all burn me on this lemme explain. Kemba obviously had the better individual performance but my way of doing it is who had the best stats and did you win. Now it’s weighed 50 50, so I had no choice but to make it co-players of the night tonight...

Lleno de experiencias, amistades (manifiestense), lágrimas, miedo, poco entenderán lo complicado que es pararte en un escenario lesionado, pero así es esto y hay que levantarse, di lo más que pude arriba y aunque algunos pensaran que hice el ridículo arriba, espero nunca les suceda lo que a mí y que aún así se paren arriba...
Gracias a todos por sus buenos deseos y por tantas personas que me preguntaron como estaba❤️ LOS AMO
Тарасенко лишился зуба в матче с «Чикаго»😬
Российскому форварду «Сент-Луиса» Владимиру Тарасенко выбили передний зуб во время матча с «Чикаго» (0:1)⚡️
Это случилось в конце второго периода, когда нападающий «Блэкхокс» Доминик Кагун неумышленно задел россиянина клюшкой в борьбе у ворот «Блюз» и избежал удаления.
Тарасенко подобрал зуб со льда, передал его врачу команды и позже продолжил игру💪
