The benefits of getting your 2006 hardrive back 😂😂🙈🙈
Some transformations aren't major losses in weight, or huge muscle gain 🙂🙃 ⬇️⬇️⬇️ I've never been overweight, I've always been into some form of exercise - swimming, dancing etc. I only found the gym in 2012 AFTER I took this photo of myself. Of course I did the usual cardio buzz, and running, zero carb etc (I didn't have a clue what tracking food was), but I was also a victim of the J1 stone and the 1st year college stone! .
It was only in 2013 when I went to Australia that I joined fitness first for a few weeks and tried body pump then discovered weights and was infatuated. I moved back to London and spent as much time as I could learning about weights. Fell in love(with weights) and did my PT course, and it went from there really.
You can see yourself the changes in body composition (can we take a moment to appreciate I didn't have a neck back then 😂) and my posture is SO bad. .
You don't have to be losing huge amounts of weight to be progressing. You may think that this is a poor reflection of work in the gym (and nutrition) based on 5 years, but I've spent the whole time learning and improvement as I went along. This is an example of slow and steady - a few bikini competitions in between, a bulk, a cut, and many ups and downs along the way, but it's my transformation and I'm proud of it. .
My only aim ever is to be the strongest and healthiest, and to use exercise as a tool for stress, and for a time out. Anything else is secondary. You must enjoy the journey along the way, otherwise I'd be looking at this photo now wondering what the hell ive done in the gym for the last 5 years! . .
I focus on the next 5 hours, then the next 5 days, and you should be the same. Don't be transfixed on the body you want 5 months down the line and just focus on the 'Now', you will get there 💕
