You have to remember... not everyone is going to like you, and that's ok. As long as you like yourself. .
From hiding in the doorways hating my picture being taken... to 6 stone lighter... taking selfies at any given opportunity .

No matter who you are there will always be someone that tries to bring you down to make themselves feel better about what they aren't achieving. I came across someone today that made it very obvious they don't agree with the way I look/train. But fuck them. I've worked fucking hard to get from being obese, unhealthy and unfit... to being almost mid 30's and stronger than a lot of women my age. And if I'm honest, I'm pretty happy with the way I look right now too. So, if I wanna show it off then I'm gonna. 😚 And if it helps convince someone else that they too can achieve what they want when they put their mind to it... even better!

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in something you only do it when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results! .

Feeling fluffy, but the lighting in the locker room got my back πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜‚

I know I'm not training for aesthetics, technique and strength is where I'm putting my focus for now, but who doesnt love to see the little changes in the way they look too. #poser #sorrynotsorry #gymwanker #nogainsreally #humpday #bodybuilding

The hardest thing about deload week... Not loading the bar! Though, even keeping the weights between 60% and 75% today my legs are feeling it! #everydayislegday

Still lots of room for Improvement but it finally feels like I'm making progress with #snatch ...little bit anyway. .

My whole body hurts so much that I can't bare to tense or flex, my hair is a mess and I've got more spots on my face than a hormonal teenager... but when the lighting is good... you just have to take advantage and #selfie πŸ˜‚ it's the law... .

#fluffyabs and #thickthighs is where it's at πŸ˜‰

I got told the other day my legs look like they belong more on a rugby player than a woman... πŸ€” I'm pretty sure it was meant as an insult, but fuck it I'm taking that as a compliment haha! Damn right my legs are thicc... have you not seen the work I put in?! .
 I used to hate having big legs, but now I fully embrace the thickness! These legs are getting stronger all the time... though they don't like me very much now after 8 sets of this to finish today's session! That last pic... not sure if it's more pain showing in my face or relief that it's over haha

Sometimes you have to step outside of your comfort zone in order to succeed. So many of my class hate it when I bring the box to sessions, and they dread box jumps! Today's session we focused on mind over matter and every single one of them manage a solo jump by the end! I love seeing that look on their faces when they achieve something they had convinced them selves they couldn't do. I was so scared of the box when I was first introduced to them... now I do them whenever I can fit them into a session! There's nowt attractive about this pic,  but I'm still chuffed that now I can do 30 inch box jumps with ease when I used to run away at the thought of jumping on just an 18 inch box! Take the little wins!

Not a lot of my personal life makes it on to here, but today I'm feeling pretty proud of this one. Even though I've been by his side for 14 years of his 15 years service so far, listening back to his citation and all he has achieved reminded me actually just how much he has done and how much family time he has sacrificed to do his job. Lil bit emosh... .

Getting strong, I love that shit! 
I might be losing my feminine curves... no longer gonna be an hourglass shape as the back thickens up, but I don't give a shit... I'm loving seeing some definition even if it's just a little bit!!

Of course it's hard. It's supposed to be hard. If it were easy everyone would do it. Hard is what makes it great. .
.
But just sometimes I wish it was a bit easier πŸ˜‰ Coach got me focusing on my 2nd pull to triple extension today and now my shoulders hurt... lots. No pain no gain though right?
