7 DAYS TRANSFORMATION..
•
For this #transformationtuesday I wanted to share my post DISNEY FLUFF slim down. When I got back from vacation, I decided I wanted something, EASY that I could do at HOME & that was FUN! I have done the whole exercise is punishment thing, done machines for ages & a few really intense programs over the past 2 years, so I just wanted to take the pressure off, ya know? I’m really glad I did, because I’m currently doing my Country DANCE cardio program & I’m pretty much loving in. It ticks ALL the boxes for now, makes my abs burn & this is this progress I have made in just a WEEK
•
I just want you to know that working out doesn’t ALWAYS have to be squats, lunges, HIIT & weights. I’ve done all those things & I’m probs gonna do a 2nd round of my lifting program after this, but for now in this season of my life, I need a fun & easy sweat! I guess let’s see where I’m at in 21 more days! Did I mention they’re only 30 minutes? Like, who doesn’t have 30 minutes to shake their tail feathers everyday? 💪👢💃🏼

Finding your inner FIT GIRL💪
•
She can be hard to find, hidden, often buried under layers & piles of self doubt, struggle, harsh words from others, low vibes & self hate. But she’s there...waiting to come put & be unleashed from within. She may be sneaky, stubborn or even reluctant, but it Is your JOB & DUTY to release her. She’s not perfect, she’s not always pretty, but she gets it DONE!
•
It took me a long time to find her & unleash her. But she’s here now, she’s helped me to lose 55lbs & she’s here to stay! She (usually) makes me feel strong, capable & encourages me to do 1% better than yesterday.
•
Good news? We ALL have one! She’s inside all of us, just might have to do a little digging & soul searching first ❤️

Throwing it back...MP style
•
Cannot believe it has been over a week since Halloween 🎃i seriously had the BEST night ever & was so incredibly humbled & grateful at people’s sweet words & smiles towards my costume. I didn’t know it would bring so much joy to people & it warms my heart that a character I love SO much is still loved by so many people....and children! I’m thinking about going again as MP next year, she was just SO FUN 😊
•
The Halloween parties also make a big occasion for me because on the 26th October 2016 was when I had my major breakdown before going to MNSSHP about my weight & I decided I had ENOUGH. I was getting ready to be Snow White, vividly remember catching sight of my body in the mirror & I sobbed...like ugly giant sobs. I was a complete grump that whole night. After that night, I decided I HAD to change. I didn’t know how, but I was going to find the way after so many FAILED attempts. I can’t even tell you the amount of diets and BS I tried for so long. Cut to two years later & 55lbs lost, MP was a lot of fun & Joy to spend time with ❤️

I would really LOVE to write some sappy post...👇
•
About what a great day I’ve had, how positive, bouncy & carefree I feel, but my friends that just isn’t the truth. Life is Not unicorns and rainbows & if I didn’t share at least some of the downs, then I wouldn’t be authentic or real. The day started off fine, got my workout in (Day 4 of country dance cardio) had a great meeting with my colleagues, had a productive morning at work & actually had the afternoon ‘free’. Then...it kinda just got a bit s***
•
I had been procrastinating on something pretty major for a good while now, but I decided to be brave, but the bullet & I got hit with some pretty hard home truths. Like right in the middle of my soul. These were the kind of home truths that you pretty much deny, you don’t speak out loud, but you know they’re true (most of them). We all have these...we just usually don’t actually hear them said out loud TO US. So, needless to say....I’m feeling a bit 🤔😭
•
Question is..what am I gonna do about it? Well, haven’t quite got that one figured out, but I do know one thing. Tomorrow morning I am gonna get up and do Day 5 of my workout program, I am going to try to be 1% better than I was today & see tomorrow as a new day, leave this one behind & move on. I’m a sensitive soul (something I need to work on) & things stick with me, but the point is I am gonna TRY...if you don’t TRY you don’t KNOW. 
P.s Pic of my in my new Disney jersey...because I love the cotton candy unicorn colours! 💓

I’M BACK 👋
•
Hey loves! I’m back...well, kind of. I’m fighting through the post Halloween sugar withdrawals & Disney blues.
•
Started my new cardio, country dance program today...fun fact, I’m not a fan of country music! But ya know, I wanted to do something fun, different & that I can do at HOME with NO EQUIPMENT. Going to the gym in the early morning of the pitch dark winter makes me wanna 🤢
•
Today was country swing! I feel a bit like an uncoordinated cowboy who has had one too many whiskies, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do 🤷‍♀️ 22 moves in 30 minutes & I definitely got my sweat on! There’s no hard combos to learn though...you learn each move, put 2 moves together & then you forget about or & keep going! The cool down & stretch is included. You guys do one after your workouts right? If you don’t, you NEED TO!
•

I’m gonna try & show you some moves everyday...in my stories 😉 Wanna join me & the 2 left feet party? Sure! DM ME & We can dance together 💃🏼
•
P.s Can anyone ready my shirt?

Starbucks & sunshine ☀️
•
Apart from Disney, my happy place is the town of Celebration, Florida. I cannot tell you the amount of times I have been lucky enough to visit this place, drive around the beautiful & quaint houses, walk around the lake & sip Starbucks whole reading the Celebration Newspaper.  I take them home to the UK with me, so that I can feel connected to this place. One day, I would love to live here & have an investment property, get Starbucks & chill
•

Something I am SUPER keen to start doing is Journalling....but I’m a constructive way. I’m kind of vibing with the idea of future journaling, belief digging (digging out my limiting beliefs) & a gratitude/accomplishment list at the end of the day. I get really stressed with time, I have to cram so much in every single day, I constantly feel the pressure of time. I NEED to carve out more time for me to actual do these things & STAY consistent. Let me know, do you journal? Do you find it useful? ❤️

🎃Halloween....you were practically perfect in every way ❤️✨
•
Had the BEST time at #mnsshp it was a really fun & spooky night. I was truly humbled by people’s kind reactions & sweet words about my outfit & costume. Little children & adults even wanted their pic taken with me! I hope that I gave just a few people some joy
•
Turns out that Mary Poppins loves Candy corn milkshakes, riding the peoplemover & mini snickers 🤪 It’s always a Jolly Holiday with Mary!

DISNEY AUDITION EXPERIENCE IN MY LIVE VID👆
•
I went live today on here about my Disney audition experience! It was for character lookalikes and it was so much fun. I really hope you can watch it, get some tips and if you’re thinking about auditioning....I would highly recommend that you do!
•
It is so incredibly hard to push yourself outside my comfort zone sometimes. It was really hard today to sit in the audition room and NOT play the comparison game. But for me, it’s going to be about small wins. I went today, I had fun and I genuinely feel like I did my best. I really do struggle with confidence when it comes to putting myself out there and auditions which is part of the life of the career path I have chosen, there is no way around it! But today I’m glad because I genuinely wanted to go and I had a lot of fun.
•
It’s taking quite a lot for me to get to this point and especially feeling more confident in my body. I’m not all the way there yet but after losing 50lbs I’m no longer the biggest girl in the room. I no longer feel as much of an outsider and like I should just turn around and leave....which I admit, I have done
•
I learned a lot today about myself, about auditioning and there are lots things I can improve for next time! I will definitely be going again. I could sit here and wonder why they didn’t pick me and why I was not successful, but I’m going to try really hard not to because I don’t think that will be productive at all I’m going to do my best to treat today as my learning curve and I gave it my best shot for today✨

I ❤️ Breakfast....
•
Guys, I am not a major fast kind of person. I workout on an empty stomach & my FAV time of day is to come home & have breakfast & coffee ☕️ I legit don’t know how people intermittent fast! This girl needs her brekkie 🤷‍♀️
•
One of my fav combos here! Dairy free yogurt, loads of berries, 1/2 banana & about 1/3 cup low sugar, high fibre bran cereal. This one has a good amount of protein in it too. Topped with a drizzle of a super clean chocolate syrup (about 1 teaspoon) and seriously...its brekkie heaven. I also love French toast & pancakes 🥞All adapted to make them meal plan friendly, of course😊
•
Fun fact! Cereal & granola are a MAJOR trigger for me. When I was in college, I used to devour boxes & boxes of cinnamon toast crunch & lucky charms. I just can’t have cereal in the house or I WILL eat it..the whole box will be gone before I know it. Same with biscuits & cookies. I’m normal too.
•
Oh & pink socks because....DUH😂💓

Got my LIFT in strong today 💪
•
Quad sets of Back & Bi’s with a burnout round & then ABS to finish. Like...whaaaattt? My online super trainer knows how to PUSH you & GET it done!
•
I was stretching & saw a lady having a PT session. She was working SO hard, huffing & puffing, sweating & red in the face. I felt so sorry for her & then I felt EMPOWERED for her. I REMEMBER those days! 55lbs heavier & not even able to hold up my body weight. It was HARD freaking work. I absolutely comment & applaud anyone for taking the steps & trying to improve their health & fitness.  It didn’t matter she struggled, it didn’t matter she couldn’t go super fast, she TRIED! That’s what I have had to keep doing...TRYING. Never giving up. I want you to do this too, you have to keep trying, girl! Don’t let the struggle defeat you. You are SO much stronger than the struggle ❤️

Let’s talk ‘busy talk’🤔
•
Look, I get it. I really get it. I am perhaps,  one of the busiest people I know! I literally work four jobs Juggling them most days, Pile on top of that lesson planning, speaking to my family who live on two different times zones,  practising my singing so I can work towards my dreams all while working out and trying to stay as healthy as possible, it’s a lot! I don’t watch TV during the week. Even if I put it on, I’m always doing something on top of that.
•
I do my absolute best to make working out and having time for that close to the top of my priority list. So when people say to me they don’t have time I kinda feel a bit out of whack. I currently work out for 30 to 40 minutes 4 times a week. That’s it! I think there is a major misconception that you have to spend hours on weird machines doing s*** that lets being real, doesn’t get you very far or get your results. Usually, we actually use the time excuse because quite frankly, we can’t be bothered. Just being real🤷‍♀️
Now don’t get me wrong, I have plenty of days & I feel unmotivated and funky and I just can’t be bothered, but I do my absolute freaking best to push through those moments & get it done anyway. Is it perfect? No. Is it sometimes weird message? Heck yes!
•
If you want to reach your goals, have a mindset shift, try and live a healthier and happier life you have the time. You’re my have to make some sacrifices but you will find the time. It’s whether you WANT to find the time that matters.

❤️BEFORE & AFTER
•
The pic on the left is actually halfway through my weight loss journey and the pic on the right was on my most recent vacay to Disney in August! One of the most VITAL things throughout my journey has been NEVER GIVING UP. I’ve lost 55lbs & it has been one heck of a rollercoaster, but it has honestly been worth it. All of the sweat, tears, early mornings, workouts. AND you CAN do it too, I promise.
•
I am NOT perfect. I cannot always resist the sweets. I cannot always resist a craving (Oreos anyone?) Today I would LOVE to say that I stuck to my meal plan, that I packed allllll my food, ate super clean & was prepared AF. I was doing really well until this afternoon when I had a energy crash and I had some sugary treats which actually made me feel worse.
•
BUT...I’m not going to give up. I’m going to keep going, because at the end of the day that’s what counts, that is what is GOING to get you to your goals. Hard work, persistence & Grit. If you’re stuck on a constant carousel for trying & giving, let me help you. Let’s chat & I promise you there is hope!

Let’s talk Monday mentality💪
•
Come on girl, we’ve all been there! Will say oh I will start on Monday,  I will try again next Monday etc. How many Mondays do you like pass by? How many days and weeks and months to be like pass us by Living in frustration and wondering why we can’t change? I’ve done it too plenty of times. It’s actually kind of weird because a new week starts on Sunday...A new week starting on Monday isn’t really a thing LOL
•
The good news is, as you can treat every day like Monday! Really, every day is a new chance to try again. I don’t mean be perfect I don’t mean get everything right I mean try again. That has been the key to my journey. I have lost 50lbs and it has NOT been easy I would be a giant liar I’d I told you the eating healthy and working out was easy because it’s not. Sure, you can get into the groove and flow but still you have to make this a lifestyle change and let’s face it, life gets in the way sometimes. The only difference, is that I kept trying I tried and I tried until little by little literally pound by pound It came off. There are plenty of days and weeks where I saw no change and I thought utterly defeated. But I had to keep trying, because the option of being overweight and disgusted in myself just wasn’t going to be my reality.
•
My Monday message to you girl, is to keep trying. Keep trying and eventually you will win❤️

This is something you learn along the way. This is something you learn along your journey. It’s kind of my secret to not actually giving up and packing it all in! I learn to compromise, mostly with myself. The more you go on this journey the deeper you dig,  The better you know yourself, your limits, went to listen to your body and what your boundaries are. Today, I just could not muster the strength nor the motivation to do my scheduled cardio leg workout. Now, I could’ve just given up and not worked at all. But, I have learnt the art of compromise. I knew that it was one of those days, so I used my online workout video library to choose a workout that I could do, That was still gonna kick my butt and most importantly I felt like I WANTED to do. I was not in the mood for, was to do something I REALLY didn’t want to do and I know myself well enough to know when I just need a gentle nudge and when I just need to do something else otherwise it would come from a place of punishment & resentment which I am trying to steer well clear from.
•
The solution? Was to do a really intense barre style leg workout in my bedroom, streamed from my phone with my favourite online personal trainer while having Hocus Pocus on in the background! It was the perfect blend of compromise.
•
I guess you could view it as a failure for not sticking to my work calendar. But, I still worked out, I did something I wanted to do, my legs were shaking by the end and I felt accomplished because I still moved my body💪

But, I still worked out, I did something I wanted to do, my legs were shaking by the end and I felt accomplished because I still moved my body💪
CRAY HAIR & Taking my day off to the EXTREME
•
Legit wore PJ’s all day & I am not even sorry 😂 What can I say? I just love to chill & snuggle 🤷‍♀️ Oh....& watch Hocus Pocus on repeat 🎃
•
Thankfully I get two rest days from my lifting program, so I took my 2nd one today. Legs tomorrow it is! I gotta show you the real life...I don’t do exiting stuff at the weekends & I have been so on the go this year that having time off is Actually super rare & precious...so I use it how I want!
•
Ok, but seriously....anybody else watch their fav movies on repeat and not get bored?

Ya’ll London is getting cold! 😬I would much rather be in the Tikki Room amongst the palm tees & singing flowers with a dole whip. Am I right? ✨🌸
•
Ok, Dole whip or citrus swirl? I like BOTH ☺️

Hey let’s catchup!👋
•
I went MIA...I totally admit it. When I get overwhelmed, I hide. I love to hide & internalise when I get overwhelmed. Truth is, I didn’t feel inspirational, I didn’t feel worthy, I didn’t feel motivational & I didn’t feel like I had anything to offer you guys. I was working out, sure, but I wasn’t eating well at all & I wasn’t feeling well. I legit ate cookies for dinner the other night 🙈
•
I’m still not 100% but I’m just gonna go back to sharing my journey & easing the pressure on having to be ‘perfect’. It’s gonna be sloppy, it might not be pretty & I know my pictures are not that ‘stop the scroll’ worthy, but I hope I still have a place on social media & I hope people can still visit my page & get some sparkly vibes ✨

I am halfway through my lifting program & besides my crappy nutrition, I am starting to see results ( surprised? Me too!) especially with my Tummy area which is looking more tone & shaped. Also, so weird...but when I walk, my legs don’t touch as much! Where are my no thigh gap gals pals at?👊 When I finish this program, I am thinking something a bit more zen and slow. Might do another round of the online yoga retreat I did back in the spring. Love that thanks to the online workouts I use, I literally have access to 100’s of workouts everyday!💖

Let’s talk about ‘FOREVER things’
•
We’ve all been through rough patches I’ve had my fair share I can tell you that now! At the beginning of the year I was unemployed, unsure and didn’t know what to do. Two years ago I was 55lbs overweight, unsure & Didn’t know what to do after trying every diet under the Sun. I decided to change & pound by pound it came off. Being overweight doesn’t have to be your forever. Struggling with nutrition doesn’t have to be your forever. •
It’s REALLY, really hard when you’re going through the rough patch to believe that they’re not going to last for ever, but I promise you that they’re not. Now, this doesn’t mean that the magically going to disappear on their own you have to have faith and take massive action but I found that things usually work out an offer in for the better even if we can’t see at the time!
•
There’s so much that we focus on, I’m so guilty of this that doesn’t serve us and it does not last for ever and it will not service forever! What does last? Love, happiness, family, joy and health. Focus on those, and I promise you you will make it past this rough patch.
