Walking up this reserve used to be such a mission on my body and I always dreaded this walk. I used to cry (no joke 😂) because I was in pain and the embarrassment of being unfit. This walk would take me ages! But today I ran up this hill with so much enjoyment knowing I am much fitter than I was the last time. Such a great feeling! 💪
It’s been a while but what an update I have for you. I have lost 20kgs since early November and I am lighter now than I was 3 years ago 💪. I have made many new accomplishments that have guided me to a new found confidence of knowing I can do set tasks if I put my mind to it. This for me comes in everyday life too! I have definitely noticed a change in my mindset and willing to give most things a try without quitting or giving up half way through 💪 If you’re still reading this here’s a little story behind the photo if you’re interested 🙊😂. TMI: Let’s just say if I was standing up I would have an ongoing stain running down my leg 🤣. Maybe TMI but hey I have a light bladder and I was busting in this photo 😂
WOW! I am stoked! I am nearly down 17kgs, have become a lot fitter and stronger and slowly getting better with my anxiety 💪. In such a short time I surprise myself constantly with what I am capable of doing. I have a long way to go but I am so thankful of the journey so far!
What a week it has been and it’s only Tuesday! As of today I have lost over 13kg since beginning my fitness journey in November 2018. This morning I achieved personal bests for all of my fitness testing and lost centimetres in all measurements since last month! I’m feeling pretty stoked with the results 🎉. To top off the beginning of the week I was awarded member of the month at my gym 💪. All of this wouldn’t be possible without the support of my loving family, friends, the group fitness instructors but most importantly from my PT @sallyannfitness. She believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself and what I was capable of doing. Over the last month I have slowly moved from the self-doubting insecure version of myself to a version (Lauren2.0) where I can’t wait for the challenges ahead 💪
This first photo was taken on the day I signed up to the gym (7.11.2018) and the second photo taken on (18.12.18) straight after a grit class and swimming lengths in the pool. Over such a short period of time I have surprised myself in various elements of my fitness and health journey and I am feeling motivated than ever before! HAPPY SUNDAY!!!
What can I say? Over the last 8 weeks I have lost nearly 11kgs and have cut out the likes of McDonald’s, Burger King and kfc. I found myself living for this type of food daily and it wasn’t benefiting me in anyway. Overcoming hurdles of anxiety and depression lead me to have found my passion for sport and fitness again through the love of pain and sweat. I have met so many inspiring people throughout my fitness journey so far and I can’t wait for what is next!
