A broken toe...excuse the state of my foot but this is what happens when you drop a 20kg plate on your foot at the gym, and continue to train in the hope no one noticed...!!!! Not a great way to start my prep season as leg sessions and cardio will be limited now..!!
Lesson to myself and everyone else..this is what can happen if your careless unracking plates off machines..lift with caution.
Oh well at least the suns out..a bit..!!

Spent the weekend at Bodypower at the NEC in Birmingham with @arlette_fitover40 and supporting @betterbodybyshan in The PCA.
Weekend was great but I'm knackered from all the walking around. Was good to see some familiar faces and be surrounded by like minded people.

Transformation Tuesday...The pic on the left came up on my timeline on Facebook over the weekend..it was taken 5 years in my running days, at the beginning of a 10k race. The pic on the right is me today, stronger both physically and mentally.
Crazy thing is I actually thought I was fat in the pic on the left..I was continuing to battle with Bulimia Nervosa, an eating disorder, and did lots of cardio including running to keep myself under a certain weight..!! 5 years on.. I'm probably heavier.. I don't know and really don't care. My physiques bigger..ive bigger stronger arms, legs and a booty now since I started lifting 2 and half year s ago. But its not only my physique thats changed, its my mental health too. My unhealthy relationship with food is a thing of the past, and I train to feel good..Its my stress relief, therapy and my passion.
Bodybuilding has changed my life for the better. I ll never look back..I'm always looking ahead.

Cardio done this morning @bendunnegyms Sandyford after my glute and hammies workout.
Prep is only around the corner for me.
Previously I've prepped from 10 to 16 weeks out from a comp but this time I'm starting prep early to take into consideration my 50th Birthday celebrations in 6 weeks time, so I'm allowing myself around 20 weeks..!! It sounds like an eternity but I know I want to really enjoy my birthday and not be restricting myself completely.
Plan at the moment is to compete at the end of September, early October in RIUP and RIBBF Nationals.
