What to do on days when you’re having bad body image moments:
YOUR HEALTH- Instead of focusing so much on how you look, be grateful that you have a body that allows you to move and workout! We can all have this mindset at times, but when you realize there are people out there who can’t walk or workout like we can it should make you feel a lot more grateful for the body that you have! 🏃🏽♀️
STOP FOCUSING ON YOURSELF- Times where my body image is the worst is often when I am the most transfixed with how I look and how “lean” I can get. Get away from the mirror and stop picking yourself apart. Go do something nice for someone else and stop putting so much pressure on yourself. 💙
REINFORCE POSITIVE THOUGHTS- For every negative thought you have about your body and appearance replace it with a positive thought! 💭 At the end of the day it comes down to mindset and the only way to change that is to establish positive thoughts about yourself!
💥PR Party!💥 Fiiiiiinally joined the two plate club! 😱😁
We’re gonna ignore that tiny curve in my back and the lack of depth in my squats since I’ve been sick as a dog and I’m honestly proud I even made it to the gym! I’m such a baby when I’m sick 😂 Here’s the PR’s of the day brought to you by #bulkingseason :
I’ve been feeling so happy and grateful for everything in my life lately. I hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday. Make sure you make today count! 🌼
Take care of your body, and your body will take care of you.

Burn out recovery update...
I’ve not been consistent with training at all the past month or so after having a major burnt out 💥
For a week or two it almost felt like I’d lost my love for fitness entirely; the thought of going to the gym just filled me with dread, which is so unusual for me
It was more than just being lazy and not going. I really did not want to go
So what did I do?
I listened to my body, put no pressure on myself to train and just took a break
I could count the number of times I’ve trained in October on one hand ✋🏼
There were days I felt guilty that I wasn’t making the effort to go or worried that I’d lose progress
But here’s the thing I love about fitness 👉🏼 It will always be there, waiting for you to come back to it!
Today I woke up for the first time in what seems a long time, feeling like I actually wanted to train!
So I went and had a frickin great leg session 🍑 Made it challenging enough to get a good sweat but didn’t take it too far. I enjoyed every second of it
That’s how training should be my friends!
Do it because you enjoy it. Do it because it makes you feel good, not because you feel pressured to fit in or look the part
And if there’s ever a time were you’ve lost the love, there is NOTHING wrong with taking a break ☝🏽
Fitness will always be there!
Over the last few weeks I’ve been focusing a lot on what little goals I need to set along the way to reach my bigger long-term goals.
This week I’m trying to focus on 3 things:
- Eating more veggies every day
- Making a protein shake after every workout
- Pushing myself a little bit extra with the weights I’m using
It really helps to write your goals down! If I write them out, I think about them a lot more and it’s even more motivation to accomplish them so you can write new ones the next week 😝

Another #transformationtuesday post!💥 Top picture is from February 2015 and bottom is from today! I love to look back (no pun intended 😏) and see how much my hard work has paid off. ⚡️ Trust the process because the best project you will ever work on is you.
A térd sajnos az egyik legsérülékenyebb ízület a váll mellett. Szerencsés vagy, ha Neked nincs vele semmilyen problémád! 🙂
Betti edzésein mostanában elsődleges célunk az volt, hogy megszüntessük a térdfájását, ami egy emelkedőkkel teli túrázós időszak után alakult ki nála. Szerencsére a rendszeres hengerezés, a szorgalmasan végzett korrekciós gyakorlatok, és Betti kitartása eredményesnek bizonyultak, a térde most már sokkal jobban van, a befektetett energia meghozta gyümölcsét. 😊Természetesen a közös munka ezzel nem áll meg, a jövőben is folytatjuk tovább az edzést. 👟💪😉 #knee#rehabilitation#recovery#personaltraining
I have no body pics cos I’m useless so have some BCAAs + energy to look at instead. (Will post a review on these soon maybe idk?) Anyways today’s workout was glutes and hammies!!!! If you wanna lose all function of ur legs then do this workout obvs switch up weight according to your strength etc.

Good luck🏋🏼♀️ #gfg#bcaas#womensbest#gymsharkwomen#gymshark#legday#sendhelp#cantwalk
Started over with my front squats 2 weeks ago, first time since my pregnancy.
Gosh my upper back felt like it slowly died for every set. Looking forward to being able to have a more straight shape in a few weeks. For the time being we are switching between front and back squats every workout. 😛
24 HOURS to go!! Want to see one of my full leg workouts? Make sure to check out @gymshark snapchat (👻 username: gymsharktv) on Wednesday at 2pm BST (3pm for the Netherlands) because I am doing a takeover!! Hope to see you there☺️💕
Happy Tuesday! Craving something sweet, so toasting to two of my favorite non-savory toasts! Perfect for after training.
Simple and Satisfying
1. Yout favorite toast topped with @urtekram creamy peanut butter, sliced banana + @wholefoods pumpkin granola
2. Favorite toast topped with homemade chocolate almond butter, organic strawberries @house_of_originals #originalchia chia seeds
If you had to pick, which one would you pick? Or would you do what I did and eat both!
REALLY trying to build back and shoulders lately! Even small progress IS progress 😅 Ladies, if you’re looking to work on building an hour glass shape, upper body muscle building is equally as important as lower body! ⏳ 💪🏼
