I never put much about my work life on here but I got sent this photo today so I thought I'd share. Me a few weeks ago at a national NHS conference in London mid-conversation with Sir Robert Francis QC; an inspirational figure that has very much shaped patient safety across the NHS in recent years.
.
I often get asked if I would prefer a career in the health & fitness industry. I used to think I would but over the last year I've really appreciated having both; my gym life and my professional life.
.
Both are my escapes from each other. When I'm bodybuilding, I can switch off from everything else and just focus on me, no pressure, no responsibility (ish), no one else to think about and to just be in my happy place πŸ’ͺ🏼
.
When I'm at work I can have a break (as much as a bodybuilder on prep can have a break) from the world of macros, muscles, calories, posing and actually think about others and something that in the scheme of things is very important, people's lives.
.
The end result of bodybuilding challenges some of my thoughts and beliefs. Whilst everyone involved knows how much more there is to it, the notion of standing on stage in a bikini being judged purely on my aesthetics is not something that always sits comfortably with me so I'm glad I have something so different in my life that allows me to show another side to myself πŸ“

I do the hard yards every day but it wouldn't be possible without my support team. You know who you all are πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ˜˜πŸ™πŸΌ

Enjoyed a lovely weekend. Time to rest up and recharge for another big week. Night peeps 😴

Celebrate the little wins! 4,000 word essay finally done which means Year 1 of my MSc is complete (providing I've passed). My house is spotless after a spring clean. I woke up with my lowest weigh-in on prep, 16 weeks down and feeling more determined than ever for the next 5 weeks πŸ’ͺ🏼 now time to go out for...what else? Coffee β˜•οΈ Happy Sunday ✌🏼

Coffee date with this beauty @dannicon26 β˜•οΈ

One of my go-to treats when on prep that I enjoy occasionally. 10g of @lindtuk 90% dark chocolate melted into my morning oats with berries and @theproteinworks zero maple syrup 😍

Catch up with the girls πŸ’•

Orange is the new black πŸ–€

πŸ’ͺ🏼❀️✌🏼

A rare night to just have some me-time. Hot soak in here, catch up on my fave series and tanning are my only plans tonight πŸ›
.
I find it hard to just do nothing as I always like to be busy but I know that resting and recovery is just as important for me, especially at this stage of prep as my training and nutrition πŸ’ͺ🏼

Time to check out the talent 😍 I mean watch Fast & Furious 8 πŸŽ₯ @lucyeall_5
