Ok guys we need to have a word🤦🏽‍♀️ (PLEASE READ THIS‼️)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀There has been a shit tonne of media coverage over me and my story lately, a lot of it very blown out of proportion and over dramatised. I never HATED my body before I just mentally had a lot of issues and had such a negative mind set of life and myself.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I was unhappy and especially with my dad becoming very ill I threw myself into the gym without much outlook onto where it would take me. It was an area I could vent my anger and frustration.

Sadly looking at these photos all you will see is a physical change much like in the articles. But it is SO MUCH MORE than that. Mentally I am HAPPY! My change isn't just as vain as getting bigger it's CONFIDENCE, INNER SECURITY and SELF LOVE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀THIS is what my story is about. It genuinely upsets me to think 'smaller' girls will see my story and that I 'hated' myself when I was that small and allow them to think the same. You are beautiful. I wish I could tell the previous me that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀There was nothing ever wrong with me but training has given me true happiness in every aspect of my life and THAT is what is important whether or not I look this way now 😊. P.S the set on the right is @womensbest I AM IN LOVE. Size is XS💖

In my natural habitat - training legs at the gym😁👋🏼. My Monday hasn't been the greatest, lots of stress in every aspect of my life at the moment but it's how you deal with it that counts! I've been writing lists of what I need done this week as well as timescales in order to complete them. Planning is the best way to stay in control and not let things slip. 🙆🏽 Also getting an early night tonight cus ya gals grumpy AF. #mondayblues

Owww hey 👋🏼 u bored of seeing these leggings yet? I'm not so jus carrying on 🙃🙃🙃. Heading home to Somerset to spend the weekend at home tonight! Will be filming a weekend vlog ANNNNDD my ultimate glute activation guide where I will run you through how I have worked to feel my glutes burn in compound movements like squats and deadlifts. Will be filming it all at a sick gym in Yeovil! SO EXCITED!!!💖💖💖

Tri-set I used as a finisher for my last leg day! This means 3 sets of different excercises with no rest. After completing the 3 I rested 1.5 minutes then repeated twice more for a total of 3 sets 🔥 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Exercises: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀▪️Kneeling to pulse squat with resistance band ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀▪️body weight split squats (focus on pushing through your heel) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀▪️hip thrust to single leg hip thrust ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I completed each for around 10-15 reps and did my last excercise of each set till failure🤓. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀P.s thank you SOOO much to everyone who was so nice about the articles written on me! I know I got hate but I always do on social media, so does everyone! Not everyone will understand what you do and not everyone is gonna like ya💖💖💖

Little 2.5 year transformation for ya! I know the pose is slightly different but I think my butt cheek freckle movement speaks for itself 🙃😂! Can we also dedicate some of this transformation to my eyebrows too? 😌😂 Also - no booby gains were made it's just angle and a padded bra lol. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀But just for reference I post these pictures to celebrate my progress but NEVER to make anyone else ashamed. When you look at my pictures please don't compare/judge that makes me super sad. I used to do it a lot and really tore myself apart. What I want you to get out of this is that what seems the impossible now IS possible. If little old me can do it so can you! I'm no super woman with insane genetics. Just been persistent and determined over the last few years of my life 🙂! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Also I have a new youtube video going live tomorrow 2pm GMT time! It's a full day of eating, dairy, gluten ANNNDD ibs friendly for all my ibs fam 🙋🏽😂. If you type in Bethany Tomlinson on youtube I should pop up🤗!

What makes a woman free? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀The ability to truly accept herself and what she believes in without the paranoia of what others think. Social media has been a blessing and a curse for me. When I started out I got so much hate for being into fitness, for not going out drinking with friends all the time.. I was DIFFERENT. I definitely had my fair share of unkind comments and looks, I guess sometimes when some people see drive and determination it intimidates them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Then I began youtube around 10 months ago and I found a new level of hate. "Your too muscular you look like a man", "your upper body is too big your not feminine". Well I think I am beautiful. Not because of my exterior appearance but because I don't let those words steal my shine. I am beautiful because I choose to live my life pursueing what makes me want to get up each morning! I love weightlifting, being strong and having a more muscular appearance but I am still feminine and I definitely deserve respect. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Seriously, whatever you are passionate about do not be afraid of others opinions. The people who love you will always support you, the rest don't matter 🍃 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀P.s massive thanks to @sparks_film for this one! If you want to see the whole video the link is still available in my bio! He's just started out in videography but he is such a natural 💜. I am UBER excited for him as he already has bookings!!!

GUYS OMGG!!! So the photo on the left I never wanted to share on social media. But @jacklenton7 and I have worked so hard over the last 12 weeks and I cannot believe how far I have come!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀On the left it was just past Christmas and my Birthday and I felt terrible about my physique, I had kina let things go. But loved every moment of enjoying the food😝! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀12 weeks on and I have had a few slip ups sure but overall I have worked my butt off and tested my limits mentally and physically to get here. I swapped completely to a gluten and dairy free IBS friendly diet and it was by far the hardest transition. I was thrown, I didn't have my normal meal choices or go to options but Jack supported me through this process and was a complete star!😊⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I am actually tearing up writing this, I have 4 weeks left with him as my coach and I genuinely beleive this process has been the best thing I could have ever done and changed my life for the better. I have learnt so much about myself as well as training and nutrition in general!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀As he is now exploring different business ventures I only wish him the best! He is such a knowledgeable kind guy and i'm sure he will slay his future fitness conquests 💃🏻.
