So still on the rise and showing with this NEW high of 239lbs morning weight 🤔
After a big spike last week in weight measurements moved a bit but noticed a much bigger jump in them this week which me and @zac_fotheringham are very happy about. Waist still the same but legs, chest and calves are up.
Anyone who knows routine, knows it’s your best friend when working towards something. I’m really starting to hit my stride these past few weeks and not letting anything get in my way to stop this snowball effect of progress.
Everything is progressing linearly which is great, we just have to keep our heads down and run with it. We have a vision in our heads that we want to accomplish so to make that a reality it’ll take time and consistency!
Photoshoot with @rayrayhudson in Chelsea. I'm currently looking for collaborations with fitness models for fashion and streetstyle shoots. If you are looking for something a little different for your portfolio I'd love to hear from you. 15 - 20 hi res images for you to use on your portfolio and social media. London based shoots around Chelsea, pimlico and Covent Garden. DM with interest.

Big shout out to @behramkhan786 weighing around 76kg and benching 160kg raw. He competed in our Powerlifting comp last year and keeps producing some inspiring lifts. This is an example for the youth of what hard work, perseverance and patience achieves. Not surprised Birmingham is known to produce some beasts 😬.

The only person you've got to compete with is yourself.
Find yourself a workout buddy and it will be the best decision ever!! Feeling so fab after a long run and hill sprints this morning with @_wheresem 🎉🧡✨ Running with someone else is so motivating, and the fresh air is so beaut🏃🏼♀️🏃🏼♀️ can’t wait to continue this, even if my lil legs are in bits right now😫🤷🏼♀️😅
No matter what, I promise I’ll always be here for you.
A gal I was chatting with last night had some hesitation on joining because last time she fell off the wagon because she didn’t have the support and accountability she needed to make it.
I can’t do it for you but I promise I’ll be here every day and show up with you. My team had our morning wake up call messages sent, pre workout in, and Nikes laced before 5.
It’s no longer a question whether I’m going to show up. But TRUST me, I was where you are. I struggled getting MYSELF up in the morning. I struggled showing up when I felt too tired. I struggled because I felt so alone in this that no one would care if I didn’t show up anyway.
But now, now I’ve built a habit, a routine and a tribe of women who are there for me and for our team. And yes, we can and WILL be there for you too.

TIME TO CALL IT OUT...apparently this Protein Powder from @scimx is a Diet Version. •
One of my dear friends got into a chat with me about their diet and we examined aspects of it. •
For any Protein Powder to be called DIET that is 192kcals per serving simply baffles me. Truly baffles me. •
It also has 18g of Sugars in it...🤣🤣🤣🤣
Remember. Calories are King. Not what a ‘nutrition’ company says when they say the word Diet.
I got a bone to pick 👀
‘Abs are made in the kitchen, not a single ab crunch done here’
After halving my body weight, my stomach has been something that I’ve still felt crazy conscious of. Even when stepping on stage. I have bad stretch marks on one side and even after having a small abdominoplasty, I could still be tightened up a little more considering how small I now am. In some lights it can look pretty bad and uneven and I worry about this when under the stage lights.
My diet is damn good and I’ve trained hard for 4 years. I’ve had to work extra hard to tighten up on what is a huge weakness to me. I always feel that off hand comments and statements posted with images are such a load of b # # # # # #t they can give you false hope/just make you feel incredibly disheartened!
End of the day, everyone’s journey is so very different, realise what your strengths are and enjoy them. Work HARD for the things that you want. What comes easy to some, will not to you, and visa versa! 😁💪💪💪💪 So here’s my little ab progress shot. We’re getting somewhere! This is also pretty much at the end of the day too! Let’s keep working!!

I thought this ONLY happened as a kid.
That feeling when you see SCHOOL STARTS on the calendar this week and you all of the sudden feel like CRRRAAAPP I have so much stuff I wanted to do this summer.
Anybody else?! 🙋🏽♀️🙋🏽♀️
So I traded my workout in for a morning of organizing + planning + gearing up for the week ahead. And don’t hold me to this after my first full week back but..... I’m freaking pumped.
It’s a weird feeling that teachers get at the beginning of the year that runs the other way come May 🤭😂
Where are my teachers at?!

Hi sorry but this whole 'thicc' trend is honestly just as toxic as skinny worshipping when it's enforced on bodies that just aren't that way naturally. All bodies are great and deserve celebration but keep your nasty opinions and enforced preferences to yourslef. No one needs it.
Ladies your body is yours, it is for you! You are not a trend or a passing fashion fad. You are living start dust. Don't ever forget that!
Every single person out there has the right to feel comfortable in their own skin, to make decisions around their own body. No one is obliged to adhere to your personal standards of beauty.
Let people live and feel good in themselves shit. Not everyone can be skinny, not everyone can be thicc and how FUCKIIIIING boring would it be if we all looked exactly the same?! All bodies are great! ❤️ Join my FREE email course through the link in my bio and learn to set goals for YOUR body 🏋️ 💥

Soz guys but it's all boring bedroom selfies in my underwear this week because I'm stuck in werking and its far too hot for clothes.
This year has honestly been such a whirlwind!
It started out with me sick, in London, doing a job that was making me miserable, heartbroken, hating my body & feeling like my life had just spiralled out of control.
Through this monumentally shitty process I've completely fallen in love with my body. Not because its perfect but just because it is.
I don't hold it to a million conditions anymore: If its skinny enough, muscular enough, if my bum is big enough, my abs are marked enough, how strong it is, if my health is good, how hungry it gets etc.. None of these things matter anymore. My body is currently in this natural state. I work out because I love it. I eat when & what I want. I've lost muscle, my bum is smaller, my abs aren't showing, I'm not as strong as I once was & some days are harder than others when it comes to my health but I'm just grateful.
When I was 17 I spent 3 months bed bound wondering if my life would ever be the same again or if I'd end up not being able to walk. When I got sick again this year all those fears came flooding back. Was this it? Was this the moment I had always been dreading?
I couldn't do the things I was use to, the things I had built my life around anymore and this could have broken me but instead it taught me to just be where I am.
I'm so much stronger in myself for it. I truly believe that my mentality is what got me back on my feet again. I truly believe great things are accessible to anyone and everyone. Life isn't perfect but it's what you make it.
Be where you are. You can't be anywhere else. Take it one day at a time. One foot in front of the other. Small steps to big change.

This is what I wore to the office today 🤓
In all seriousness being self employed has some very big perks. I live by my own rules, travel quite freely, I don't have to deal with office politics or long commutes.
It does come without its fallbacks though. I standardly work more hours since I went freelance than when I was employed. If my work day ends before 10pm it's a good day. It's hard sometimes knowing what the best move is when you have no one to refer with or answer to. Some days I don't feel motivated and I have to be my own boss and kick myself up the arse.
For me personally starting my own business still scares me shitless. I'm very dyslexic and at school I was always told I was lazy, an underachiever or just straight treated like I was stupid. Even though I've proven to myself that none of these things are true there is still always this little voice of doubt in the back of my mind.
You can't let your past define your future though or if you do get ready for a load of the same shit. You'll never achieve new results unless you try a new course of action.
This is why I work with @laurentickner having a business coach and mentor is an invaluable resource. She helps me massively in terms of practicality, self discipline and organisation but she's supporting my personal development in a business setting, helping me overcome my limiting beliefs & unpick the negative self talk that has kept me small for years.
I just want you all to know that no one can define you or your success except you!
Go follow @laurentickner she really is a boss 🔥
P.S who can see what's missing here? ...other than my pants.
