juststrong

First session of the week in the bag. First time doing split squats today as well, was tough, really tough. Lost another half a stone which I’m happy with, and I can visibly see my muscles 💪 ALSO today I got into a size on my top half that I haven’t done since school, and that’s at least 11 years ago!!!! I’ve dropped 5 dress sizes on top and 4 dresses on my bottom half. My bottom is taking ages to go away 😂 . Anything is possible when you love the journey and invest in yourself ☺️ . I’m happy though, and I brought a new phone case, that simply says smile 😊 so I remember to, when I feel down. . Made dinner for @gracefaye98 and myself tonight at work, we had homemade turkey burgers, beans and potatoes, yummy 😋 . . . . #crossfit #crossfit888 #crossfitter #fattofitjourney #fattofit #makemeanathlete #lifestylenotadiet #healthyeating #strengthandconditioning #legsday #lifestyle #lifestylechanges #health #healthyliving #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #healthyfood #conditioning #strengthtraining #fit #fitness #fitnessmotivation #bestrong #juststrong #strong #stronger

Why do I post these pictures? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏼For all of the petite women out there who feel left out of the body positivity narrative - I’m here to write us in💫. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💪🏼I’m here to tell you that if I can feel comfortable, happy, sexy, strong, and confident in my body, then so can you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But it starts with what goes on inside your mind🧠. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏼If you see yourself as strong and confident, then that true belief in yourself will convince everyone around you. You will walk into meetings or the bar or wherever and turn heads with your authentic radiance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❤️That’s why tall is a feeling anyone can develop. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But then what comes first? - you ask - Looking good, or feeling good? Most people think it starts with looking good. They’re wrong🙅🏼‍♀️. Confidence is NOT a chicken or egg question; it’s a continual feedback loop that involves taking care of yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🥊I truly believe living a healthier lifestyle will help you develop that bullet proof confidence. I’m here to help - and I have a few more spots open for both in person (NYC) and online training. DM me - let’s get you on the books for a free consult this week✨.

160 3x6 < last set ^^ I’m SORE from this workout yesterday. Still gonna go making time for the gym today for stretching & potentially ab work. Completing heavy accessory work after two main lifts killed me yesterday, but I can prepare myself for tomorrow knowing what a struggle the day was. My program is very body-builder style. Gotta stay on it! 💪🏼 This set felt good! Still struggling with complete rooting of my feet but my stance has been a tweak or two off for a week now. 🙃🙃 Stay motivated 🏋🏼‍♀️💪🏼🍑 #girlswhopowerlift #juststrong #onemoregym #powerlifting #squats #weightlifting #gwpl #juststrongambassador #hypertrophytraining

So it’s #transformationtuesday and I don’t do these a lot but I’ve just finished an epic PT session with @santefitnessuk and felt pretty good so wanted to visualise my progress. The picture on the left was me 2 years ago. I was self conscious about how I looked, I wore clothes that hid my shape and I’d feel stressed about going on nights out as I just couldn’t compete with my friends and people around me. It was a sad time. The picture on the right is me now. Still lots more work to do. Need to get rid of my belly 🙊. But I’m still so pleased with my journey and how well I’ve done. I’m feeling confident, healthy, happy and amazing. I’m buzzing to say that my arthritis does not control when and what I do in the gym. I control it. 🙌🏻. #juststrong #strengthtraining #ladiesthatlift #transformation #tuesday #gym #exercise #workout #feelinggood #fit #healthy #happy #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #motivation #dreambig #teamself #fitmomlife #bodypositive #fitnessblogger #inspireothers #strongnotskinny #shapesquad #fitgirlguide #rheumatoidarthritis #autoimmunedisease

Day 19: List 5 reasons why you run 1. The feeling after a good run 2. How much better I feel than before I was a runner 3. Overall health 4. Good habits I'm teaching my kids 5.

Back update. Somehow I’ve gained weight 🤔 like fluff and I don’t know how I’ve cut out all the rubbish and I’m eating healthy and balanced 😫 anyway I see a little more definition but need to do a side by side pic. It’s not easy this training lark. It’s a long slow process and I see it coming but it’s taking time. #juststrong #juststrongambassador #fitat40 #tuesdaymotivation #backworkout #musclesandtattoos #healthylifestyle #summer
