Had the most amazing time seeing @jessiej last night. ⭐️
Anybody that knows me knows I adore her, her music and her honest positivity. She was a huge influence and role model as I grew up and still is now. Going to see her is one of my most favourite things to do, she’s always incredible live. I haven’t missed a tour since I was 13 and I think this was my 9th time seeing her live. It was the best ever getting to go with my @emilyetopping and getting to share it with her for her first time.
Thank you for the perfect birthday Em 🌺
There are so many things that I love about Muay Thai. When I find things hard I want to improve them immediately until they are perfect. It’s those moments when I find things hard that Muay Thai drives me to push myself to become a better person and fighter in all ways. Muay Thai has taught me that you must be able to rely on yourself, no one can do it for you or make it better, you must do that yourself and give yourself a chance. I sacrifice things to train. A lot of it goes unseen. I may go without things now, but if I continue fighting I know I will never be nothing. Which is exactly where I was heading before I started fighting.
I'm currently in fight camp, I work 26 hours a week, I'm in university full time doing a joint honours course. Although I'm pushing myself and bettering myself I'm exceptionally busy with no free time and I'm really missing being out with my horses in the middle of absolutely no where. I'm a country girl through and through and I'm genuinely looking forward to getting my fight out of the way so I can balance my time between fighting and horses again. Until the next fight that is 🐴🐴🐴 I just really want to go home at the moment
Every fight camp my biggest challenge has been myself. Having a big 'end date' and not training to just have fun and make improvements added the pressure and then the self doubt and anxiety kicked in. 🌺
This has been a huge learning curve for me. I get these a lot anyway and through fighting I've learnt how to push through my doubt. 🌺
Every time I've found it difficult and wanted to stop, I haven't. I may slow down but I still push through and make the progress and step closer to reaching my goals. Training sessions are hard. Conditioning is hard. Balancing full time uni, fight camp, work and adulting is hard. But I'm sure as bananas doing all of it although it's hard. This has been amazing for my confidence. 🌺
I've had amazing support throughout and I've learnt that the only limits I have are the ones I've put on myself and I have been surpassing them so far. Little by little I'm getting there and I'm excited to continue doing so. 🌺
Small incremental steps every day to beat my own expectations. 🌺
