About three weeks ago I tweaked my lower back while deadlifting. After a massage and then a visit to the chiropractor it was found that my L4/L5 was just a bit pissed at me.
So that means no heavy deadlifting for two weeks, booooo.
I understand why and know I need to do what I need to in order to stay healthy. It is just so frustrating when something like this happens. Although I can’t really complain because it is nowhere even close to what my hubby @gryph5 has been through with his back.
Kyle modified my leg day with different exercises, lighter weight and higher reps. It was a good day even without the heavy deadlifts I guess 😋. My favorite is the banded side steps and Cinna waiting at the end to cheer me on.
Listen to your body, your coach and your doctors. I have this entire year for building and I will be thrilled to deadlift again when I am allowed!
REMEMBER TO SWIPE LEFT FOR HINDU SQUAT VID
Hello... I’m not in my pants for a change!
Decided to be brave and speak to camera! Apologies for the terrible editing, but I guess it can only get better.
Full leg workout tonight as follows:
2. Stiff legged deadlifts
X4 sets of 8 with 30kg dumbbells
3. Walking lunges with wall sit
X3 12kg dumbbells + 1 min wall sit
4. Single leg leg push
X10 each leg - 4 sets
5. Hamstring curls on Swiss ball
X 4 sets of 15
6. Calf raises on machine
X5 sets of 25
7. 100 Hindu squats
Sometimes I feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders...nothing beats going to the gym and letting out all your anger and frustrations. Not my strongest lift....but that’ll change soon #legday#squats#fitness#goldsgym#fitnessmotivation
Happy Sunday! Day 20/66 #gymshark66 . I'm
really trying to start the week on a positive note. I've done
half of my meal prep for the week, currently getting in some
cardio and then I'll edit some videos for the rest of the night. .
But I wanted to talk about another goal I have for the year
which is build lean muscle and be 1 701bs by 5/1 . 1've gained
about 801bs due to my PCOS and I'm really trying to do bette
with my diet but it has seriously been a struggle (hence why
I'm trying this whole meal prep life again). I'll make sure to
keep you all updated and let you know how its going. .
Outfit: everything gymshark

Happy Sunday everyoneee 🥰 After a busy weekend, I love to end my Sunday’s preparing for the week ahead and the chill in the evening’s. I did a big food shop earlier so meal prepping for the week is about to go down!
We’re half way through January and as part of @mioskincare#MyMonthOfMio campaign, I want to share what I do to prioritise self-care and well-being all year round 🤗 I try and make sure I schedule time to do these things as I know it will benefit all aspects of my life. My top priorities would be getting to the gym/ workout classes at least 4-5 times a week, making sure my diet is balanced by meal prepping and not eating loads of processed foods/ eating out too much, making time to journal, meditate for at least 5 minutes most mornings, and finally getting enough sleep 💤
I would love to hear what you do as part of your daily routine to keep yourself at your best potential self 💁🏻♀️

Growing up I had such a weird and unrealistic idea of what a relationship should look like. I thought it should be effortless and that the right two people just go together. (Thank you @ the media) I went from relationship to relationship just to get to the same point in each one and feel trapped and leave. Then I met Austin 💘 we fell for eachother hard, totally love at first sight. Then the honeymoon phase ended and reality hit for both of us😊 it’s been a lot of work since then. We realized that we both had someone who was willing to put in the work, willing to sacrifice and willing to make two lives into one while still having an even balance of our own space and time- that we realized we had it ALL.
Truly loving someone is wanting to keep it going no matter what. If you’re both willing to keep trying and putting your best effort into it knowing that it will never be perfect and there will always be room to learn and grow together: that is love.
And I don’t mean if y’all just keep fucking eachother over and cheating and lying that it’s okay and just move past it, no. Fuck a relationship that is built on distrust and betrayal. Austin and I don’t lie to or hurt eachother, that isn’t love.
Thanks for being my guy, and being there for me, and supportive, and doing things with me just to realize nothing is better than cuddling on the couch with Deisel and Odie.
And thank you for being a good man.
You’re such an inspiration and you have that one-of-a-kind spirit, I’m so so glad our paths crossed when they did and I’m just so grateful I get to share experiences with someone like you. Happy birthday, happy anniversary, and I know I already say it 10 times a day but I can’t seem to get it out enough:
I love you. 💘
