So today I had an unplanned day off. Elton was also off and, as we are currently like ships in the night, I suggested we spend at least some of the day together.
The day started badly with a terrible night's sleep. Loads of crap going round in my head, coupled with hot sweats and bad dreams. I woke at 6.15am feeling pretty rotten.
Still, off I went to yoga and from there the day instantly improved 😁 The sun came out, I had a nice walk with the dog and then went climbing with Elton. Managed 2 5a leads and 2 5b leads, on the bigger wall, so happy with that. Also did a few top ropes.
Followed all that with a 5km run and now I'm at Crossfit. Boom!!
Asså, hade jag inte haft @mrpinkmachine att svara för hade jag skitit i att göra nått och lagt mig i soffan, kanske tagit en öl åxå bara för att. Nu vart det inte så, 16 små minuter #tabata i trägårn är avklarat. Väldigt kort pass men det är så jobbigt och gör så ont. Egentligen ska det tydligen vara 32 minuter, jag är inte där riktigt än om man säger så! Ibland är det inte roligt men fan så gött det är när man ändå gjorde det!! Nu siktar jag in mig på helgens löppass i Nybro. Kommer bli fruktat jobbigt det med. 13/10 är det dax för #comeback då #beatthemountain går av stapeln för 4:e året. Så, det är bara att köra, även när det tar emot en del. #getfit#getinshape#running#ocr#crossfit#wannabe#getstrong#celsius#celsiussverige#fast#fastsverige
This is just a little reminder for those out here that feel stuck or lost: YOU ARE NOT ALONE and things do get better just trust the process ✨ Focus on things that are in your control and NEVER GIVE UP!
Also, side note because I feel like this is very important... If anyone ever feels alone or needs someone to talk to I’m always here!! I’ve learned that the best thing is to be able to talk to someone and not hold things inside and I want to be that person if needed 😊
Tag 43 von 60: Heute war Brust Tag, die Brust ist zusammen mit dem Bauch meine größte Schwachstelle mit dem meisten Speck. Daher gebe ich da besonders Gaß wobei ich denke das ich noch mehr Ausdauer training machen muss...
July 2017- I weighed in at my highest weight of 185. I felt so defeated seeing that 😰
September 2017- My boyfriend at the time and I were heading to a friend's wedding. I went into my closet to find something to wear andddd you know how your closet is FULL of clothes and you can literally find NOTHING to wear?! That was me. I couldn't find anything because I felt gross in everything I put on. I laid down in total defeat and cried. My boyfriend kept saying "you look beautiful" and as thankful as I am for those words... they don't mean anything if YOU don't believe them yourself 🤔
Mid-September was when I submitted that photo on the left to join my first DietBet (which is something I highly recommend- especially if you're competitive in nature like I am!) and my starting weight was 176. You have 4 weeks to lose 4% of your body weight, so for me that was a goal of 169. And you know what? I did it. I remember being SO happy to reach 169 and told myself that 160 was my goal and then I would be good 👏🏻
Fast forward to now and I just hit 140. I never thought I would be here. The girl on the left was sad, feeling like a blob, and staying far away from clothes. The girl on the right is happy, can't stop shopping, and didn't give up on herself over last year. I fell in love with a healthy lifestyle and I won't go back 🙌🏻
It has taken me a long time to have a positive self-image. I am so much happier physically and mentally because I never gave up on MYSELF. You deserve to feel confident, sexy, happy, whatever it might be! Don't give up on yourself, no matter how hard. I promise you it's worth it and YOU are worth it 💛
Medicine ball training can be one of the most versatile and safe things you can do. You can use it with people of any age, athletic or physical background; functional power with proper reps/sets, or strictly conditioning purposes with timed intervals. Here I am performing one of my favorite exercises; lying med-ball tosses. Get creative and give some exercises a try!
