I haven't been too happy with my progress after comparing my 20 week #BBG progress pictures. Then tonight I took a picture of my bloated tummy and I'm sharing it here because I'm just like anyone else a normal person with ups and downs and the occasional bloating. Then I noticed my abs definition even when I'm bloated and didn't feel so bad anymore. It's going to be a stormy night here 💨😂.
I absolutely LOVE barbecue!! ❤️ As it warms up, making kabobs has become my favorite go to recipe because it's so incredibly simple. Just chicken 🐔 bell peppers 🌶 pineapple 🍍and onion and I could eat nothing but that every night. 💚
Athletica with @f45_training_pakenham this morning. A bright and early 5:30am class (who thought that was a great idea on a Friday? 🙋🏼😂) .
Surprisingly I didn't die as much as I thought I would. Cleary my cardio has improved immensely !!! 🎉🎉🎉
Then I came home and smashed out #week24 arms bbg style 💪🏼💪🏼
Bring on the rest of FRIDAY!!! .
I'll be zonked tonight 😴
I get asked a lot how I find the time and the motivation to workout consistently. And the truth is I am a normal girl. I don't always feel motivated. I am not perfect with my nutrition. I have to modify my workouts a lot. I miss workouts. Sometimes all I want to do is binge watch Netflix + eat pizza. I have no more motivation then anyone else. But I show up consistently without fail. I push play when all I want to do is snooze. I pick healthier choices more than not. I don't act off my emotions in the moment, I ACT first and never wait for motivation to strike. I am flawed, and my gym clothes usually never match. I have obligations, a demanding career, a husband and three kitties. I am just like you. I'm not special, but I still put myself first. And if I can put myself first no matter what, so can you. ❤️
Coffee is life!💗☕️ Reaping all the benefits of hubby's Father's Day gift... @breville espresso machine 🙌. I'd say it's a #winwin for both of us! 😉
Did my bbg week 2 abs & arms workout upstairs while 🐰❄️ napped and mini me played. I am not gonna lie. I didn't want to workout because my pd cramps suck andddd yeah. I pushed through it and sucked it up to get my workout in! I've come too far to make lame excuses! I'm so better than that! 💗💪 I only modified push-ups and I'm super proud of myself for pushing through! I'm getting stronger and it feels amazing!
Ok loves, gonna finish my coffee and finish making dinner before work. 💗
I don't pretend to be perfect, and my progress is maybe slower than it is for some other girls.
But here's the truth: I don't always feel okay in my skin, there are days when I just try every clothes that I have and I end in tears because I don't like what I see in the mirror. But... I also feel more confident than I was before. I feel stronger, even if I'm not strong.
I'm far away from the ideal I had when I began BBG, but I'm far away from where I began, and it is the only thing that should count for everybody. Be kind with yourself, just a little progress is actually a progress 💜
There are days like today where I just can't get my shit together. I'm working from home so I can focus on getting deposition transcript summaries done on a deadline and although I got in my workout this morning I still feel like a hot hot mess. So much work to be done, kitchen is a mess, I STILL haven't put away my laundry that I did this weekend, and I am SO tired. But I am trying to embrace the mess, the tiredness, the frustration and put it to good use. No successful person has it easy NOR do they always have their shit together. So embrace whatever mess you have going on today and use it to fuel you 🙌🏻 Okay now back to being a lawyer 📚
The situation. Good news isssss...I finished all flipping rounds of leg day. ::bows:: going in I didn't plan on it I thought I'd just do each circuit once and be done but when I went to exit out they gave me three options: save to finish later (not happening), return to workout or. Or quit. Why did they have to say quit?! I'm not quitting, I'm building up! So anyways, I very much wanted to accurately record my progress so onto the mat I went again to finish the circuits a second time. I'd have to say the second circuit of the third round (am I even saying that right you guys?) was the hardest. Like the steepest part of an incline if you're going up a hill. And those burpees. Just shoot me. But. After that i felt like my body adjusted and was I was able to lean on it and rely on my legs to carry me through. So. Proud and grateful. And now feeding the body and taking care of my joints cuz I'm old 😂🙈❤️.
Pregnancy can affect our bodies in so many ways and nowadays there always seems to be some celebrity, springing back into shape before they've even left the hospital! .
NEVER feel under pressure, cherish your time with your babies as the times goes by too quickly. Only begin when YOU are ready & you've been cleared to do so by a health professional. It can take up to two years to recover fully from pregnancy & giving birth.
The female body is amazing though - I definitely feel fitter, stronger & healthier now than I ever did before having my two children. .
To all the mammas out there - you're doing an incredible job - don't forget that!!
Legs week 21 done! Woke up super early since today is a busy day. Did legs and 10 min easy run just to cold down. Can't believe this is Week is almost over. It always passes so fast when I'm at my parents 😢.
This is #realstagram for the sweet @avdfit and #postworkoutselfie for beauties @fitlife_honey_bbg and @fitnik.bbg Thank you babies!!! I loooove when you tag me! It gives me inspiration for my next posts!!!
Some of you asked me why I don't use to share what I have for lunch, dinner... So today you have what I've just eaten for lunch 😉
As you can see, it's a huge salad with everything I found in the fridge 🙌
One of the things I love to add is a "sauce" I make with avocado, low fat curd, onion powder, oregano and lemon and I love it 😍
Rise & shine! 😍 Battling morning alarms are the worst, amirite? 🙄 Today I forced myself to jump out of bed and go sit outside to wake up. Trying super hard to workout in the mornings, even though they're not really my jam. BUT I do like that I get them done first thing, and nothing, like staying late at work, can get in the way. Do you guys have any early morning tips? 😎 #bbgcommunity#bbgladies#bbg#bbgbride#bbg2017
Yesterday was super tough on me , doing abs and arms pre training 💪🏼 in the last two rounds I really felt my muscles give up , I would try and try to push myself back up or do my toe taps and my body just couldn't do it. This lead me to stop my timer and keep trying until I could finish my reps (which I'm proud of myself for) but it also led to me feeling really down and embarrassed at the gym... upper body strength has always been something I have battled with and in all honesty I've always avoided changing that, I know that progress takes time and right now this is one of my weaknesses , but I also know that in time it could become one of my strengths. I am really focused on my long-term goals this time around and I won't let one bad day defeat me , I think as long as I know I gave it my best that's what matters 💕 I need to love myself and be proud of myself for the work I have put in. Can't wait to head to gym to smash out my LISS workout and I will make sure I come back a sweaty mess because I want to push harder to show myself I can💪🏼 have an awesome day ladies and always keep smiling 🌸
One thing I know for sure is that everyone deserves to feel happy + confident in their own skin. I have gone from someone who struggled with binge eating disorder and who couldn't get out of the terrible cycle to someone who has turned this past struggle into a passion for helping others see their own potential. Many people wish for life to be easy, but my demons have been the exact catalyst for my external and internal transformation and I don't regret going through what I went through. Our struggles become our greatest strengths if we let them and I am so grateful for this journey ❤️

•Yesterday I had swimming with my surf lifesaving team. Its HIIT and it KILLS me. I was one of those cool people and wore a nose clip this week to save my sinuses from their incredibly painful reaction to chlorine, I looked like a dick head but it helped! However, breathing became more difficult- only using your mouth to breathe when you're panting like a hot shaggy dog in the sunshine is HARD! And struggling for oxygen is not fun by any means but.. the chlorine didn't affect my sinuses and I can breathe today without being all blocked up so that's a fricken win ya mofo's!! And although I find my fitness endurance with swimming hard and feel like the super slow retarded swimmer of the group, I'm still noticing progress within myself each week - I can hold my breath longer, I can do more lengths without having to stop for a rest etc. Small wins!
Today I'm feeling motivated after seeing my hard work pay off 💪
✈️20 days until Aussie IRB comp
#HIIT time 💦😝 Today I did a skipping hiit which is my fave kind lately! I did the first 5 mins doing the usual 30 seconds work / rest & the last 10 mins doing 1.5mins work / 30 seconds rest 😰 I have no idea where I got my energy this morning, but I am glad she showed up 💥😜 Hope you all smash your Thursdays! 💕💋✌🏼
Trying something new for awhile! I love Kayla, but I think I need to shake things up to get my motivation back. I love this calendar - having everything laid out so clearly helps me to stick with the plan, and I'm actually looking forward to the next 30 days of Core de Force!!
Went for an 8 km walk on this longest day of the year. I took this picture at 22.30 and it was still bright and 20 degrees 😀. I looooove long warm summer eves.
Plan was to do HIIT today but I woke up with a headache that didn't go away so I decided to take it easy on myself and do a nice long walk instead. Hope I'll feel better tomorrow for a more intense workout.
