Would like to offer up my sincere condolences to everyone in my @formpilatesandbarre reformer class. Only now as I look at this photo am I realising how much it looks like I’m not wearing pants. This is the closest I’ll ever get to posting nudes online. 🍑😂 #freethepeach #breaktheinternet #enjoytheshow

Reposting this from @kayla_itsines because I’ve had a rubbish day and I just want to go home and curl up in bed but I’m at the gym... because I made a promise. 🙃 I firmly believe that we should be able to trust not only those close to us but also ourselves. I promised myself that come hell or high water I’d be at the gym every damn day this week. 👊 So, deep breath, think strong thoughts and I’m following through because I think it makes us stronger when we hold ourselves accountable for the promises we make, not only to others but also ourselves. ✌️

I’ve been holding my own hand a little too much recently. ✋ I’ve been really out of touch with the gym — which extends to me feeling really out of touch with my body. And while I allow myself time to be kind and take breaks, over the last few weeks if I’m honest it has spread from being a break to me prioritising other things before my health. And while it’s true that I’ve been unwell and I’ve had a lot of work, study, other commitments if I’m truthful with myself I really could have pushed myself a little harder — especially considering how valuable I know my health is. So I’m holding myself accountable. Starting with last nights workout ☝️ which was hell 😂 I am so sore. #nevermissamonday

*ahem* can, uh, can everyone hear me up the back? I’m reposting this banger from  @thefashionfitnessfoodie and it’s a good one. 👇
・・・
Fat-burners, detox teas and meal placement shakes. Companies profit from making us feel shit and then offering their service as the ‘solution’. (exhibit a; Protein World’s specularly shit ‘beach body ready’ campaign of 2015 lol. “Your body isn’t ready for the beach but our protein will get you there can buy it pls and thank you")⠀
⠀
So what do we do? We buy the products. Aside from making these businesses rich, one of two things will happen -⠀
⠀
1. We will get the results we desired however;⠀
A. it won’t be sustainable⠀
B. It will be due to another factor (for example - buying fat burners and starting a new training programme - but the new training stimulus and increased energy expenditure will the variable creating the resultzZz.)⠀
⠀
2. We won’t get the results we desire, and will therefore buy MORE of the ‘stuff’ until we fall into the loop of number 1. (Hello hi there Herbalife.)⠀
⠀
I’m not going to tell you making positive changes to your diet and changing engraind habits is easy. Because its not. But I will say that you catagorically don’t need these detoxes, pills or disturbingly thick liquid shakes which replace actual foods.⠀
⠀
 You just need;⠀
⠀
Food you like that’s nutritious⠀
Food you like that you just bloody like⠀
And hydration⠀
⠀
I know it’s confusing af because we’ve been told that is has to be this complex thing, made up of products in the back isle of Holland and Barret or things you need to order from Amazon (and then get charged at customs for #sadness). But we just don’t. Ignore the BS.⠀

Is anybody else their own worst enemy? 🙋🏻‍♀️ @victoriafsamson took this photo of me months ago. MONTHS. AGO. And it has just been sitting in my phone for ages because I look at this photo and I am so mean to myself. 🤦🏻‍♀️ But I’ve made a promise to start loving myself more. I’m always going to find things I can criticise but I guess, as they say, “You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.” ✨ There’s growth in discomfort.

#Repost @fightforgrowth 😭💪 There are SO many negative aspects to social media, but this is not one of them. 🏆 I have been feeling so flat and in a lot of pain recently, my motivation has been in the 🚽 and I’ve barely made it to the gym. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Tonight I was scrolling through hashtags reading people’s stories and I feel SO inspired. Guys keep sharing your journeys because you don’t know who it might help one day. ❤️ In the meantime, I thought I’d share this photo & caption from @fightforgrowth because it really made me feel inspired to get my 🍑 in gear & keep going. 🙌

💜that girl on the left?
⠀
🌻I love her. she was a fighter. I will never forget all the work she did. her diligence saved my life. I don’t fear her. I don’t resent the body that she chose to grow from. that woman is me. and I am grateful for the past as I am present.
⠀
🌻forever growing babes - remember to stay grounded in where you are today! because you, in this very moment, are going to take you to your goals. Whatever those goals may be, root from where you are today with unconditional love - practice this with every inch. and fight for every inch.💜💪🏼

i’m in your corner always xo💜

Tomorrow is the last exam of my law degree. I open a brand new chapter of my life soon and I can’t wait to take a deep breath, reassess my goals and see what the future holds. ✨ Whatever it may be, I’m pretty sure that winding up at the gym every day will be a guarantee. 💁🏻‍♀️😂

Can you get stage fright about a video? 🤔😂 Alright — here it is. 💁🏻‍♀️ My ‘secret’ to perfect hair. 😉 Autoimmune diseases can have some pretty challenging symptoms and their medications can have some pretty harsh side effects — like hair loss. 🙄 When my health improved my hair grew a LOT but it’s still pretty thin and fragile.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, for the days I want a little extra oomph I use a crown extension (aka ‘topper’) from @beverlymayhair. 👑 It just clips into the top of my hair and it’s like I’ve had a fabulous blow dry & looks flawless instantly. 💁🏻‍♀️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is actually quite an embarrassing topic for a lot of women — but I was SO excited when I found this that I just thought I’m so sure there are other women out there with thin hair (for medical reasons or otherwise) who might seriously love this! ❤️ Or who just want a fabulous clip in fringe/bangs like my hairdresser has. 💯 (Seriously, I didn’t know it wasn’t her hair until she told me.) 😱
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The other amazing pro is that it takes me straight from the sweaty gym hair to dinner date perfect in literally a minute. 😂👌 I honestly love it. And it blends so beautifully into my @carlalawsonhairextensions. 🙌 Thank you @jonrenau & @beverlymayhair 😘❤️

What’s 11,600 kilometres when your kindergarten best friend is marrying the love of his life? ✈️💞🍾 So grateful we were able to celebrate with you. One of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever been to, it was an amazing day. 🙌 Wishing you both a lifetime of love and happiness. 👰🤵💍

The sky’s more blue, in Malibu 🎶 I needed a break so badly, and it’s so good to be back. For those that don’t know, I actually grew up in the States though I live in Australia now. 🐨 So having a kale apple mimosa in celebration — drinking for my health & too my health? 🤔 They definitely cancel each other out, right? 😉
