This kid won't let me sleep in! #firstworldproblems But it means I've worked out every morning before breakfast πŸ‘ŒπŸΌI don't have access to a gym so I'm just doing 15-20 mins of skipping and then 30 mins of resistance band/bodyweight work each day. All this cardio is going to kill me 😏

The countdown is on until I'm back in paradise 🌺 I've been totally MIA the last few days because truthfully I've just had a lot on πŸ˜” I've been getting ready for my family vacay, training and just doing boring life admin shit that hasn't been worthy of a post (but I have been doing a lot more stories πŸ™ˆ). I'll be back real soon with lots of beach/bikini/holiday workout photos! 😘

Everywhere you look, there's people telling you to push yourself out of your comfort zone, set big goals, etc. Even I have done posts with that kind of theme! But something that isn't discussed enough is managing expectations and reality testing goals.
It's totally fine to have physique goals as well as health/fitness goals. Basically everyone I speak to is primarily motivated to exercise because they want to look a certain way. But have you reality tested your "body goals" - are your expectations for your body aligned with your current actions? It is unrealistic to want to look like a shredded bikini competitor if you aren't willing to eat a very strict diet and train for hours and hours a day. Two weekly pump classes and a chicken salad isn't going to cut it 😏 It's also unrealistic to want to grow a big ol' booty if you aren't lifting heavy and eating in a surplus.
The problem with having unrealistic expectations is that you are setting yourself up for disappointment down the track when you don't achieve the results you imagined. I'm not saying you shouldn't set goals that challenge you, but you are more likely to achieve results and be satisfied with those results if your goals are realistic, complimentary to your lifestyle and training capabilities.
I think most of us are just searching for a level of fitness that brings us better overall health, perhaps a better body composition, and functional strength/fitness that lets us run around after our kids and families. You don't need to train for five hours a day to achieve those things. But you do need to find a form of exercise and a way of eating that is enjoyable and sustainable and will allow you to be consistent. And you need to be patient - results will take time but they will happen! Naturally you won't look like Lauren Simpson training and eating this way, but that's ok because you don't need to! Be ok with being a fitter, healthier and stronger version of yourself because that's a fantastic and realistic goal that's perfectly achieveable 😘

πŸ”₯Small victories πŸ”₯

I won't sugarcoat it - I have been feeling a bit flat again these past few days. But I managed to get to the gym this afternoon and smashed out a massive leg session which felt freakin amazing. I also got 8 hours sleep last night πŸ™ŒπŸ» Trying to keep my mind focused on the positives! However, I didn't feel up to snapping any pics today so here's a gratuitous fully clothed selfie from yesterday 😜

On a seperate note, I'm totally hopeless and forgot to announce the @colourfulkisses.by.mel Lipsense Giveaway winner! I'm so sorry πŸ™ˆ Congratultions @leigh_bbg, you won the giveaway and thank you to everyone who entered! ❀️ .

Twinning at Spring Fair with my faves ❀️ πŸ‘―

Sorry for being MIA this week babes πŸ™ˆ I've been training, eating well and finally sleeping better (thanks for the suggestions everyone!) but just haven't had much to say on here! Sometimes I can post three times a day and other times I've literally got nothing to share! Tell me I'm not the only one like that!?!?! πŸ™ˆ I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and I'm sure I'll be back to spamming your feeds again soon 😘❀️ .

The famous "wedgie" photo makes a return! In just under two weeks I'm heading to Bali for the first time in 5 years. I'm beyond excited to be taking the small human there for the first time and to get my tan on (because let's face it, I'm basically as white as a sheet of paper πŸ˜‰). But the other day I found myself stressing a little about wearing a bikini when I get there. Probably because I have purchased a piece of string to wear as a bikini. Who knows? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜œπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ I think it's normal and perfectly human to worry a little about being basically unclothed in public. But why do we do we put so much pressure on ourselves when it comes to donning swimwear? Probably because we get fed images every day that tell us what we are "meant" to look like in a bikini. Lean as a bean, but also with a big bum, curvy hips, big boobs, bangin tan, cellulite free, scar free, stretch mark free, mum tum free, smooth as a babies' bottom skin.
But you know what, all of that is BS. All you need to wear a bikini is.... a body. Full stop. There's no ideal "bikini body" and anyone that tries to tell you differently is a turnip. So I'm just going to post this photo of me in all my untanned glory to remind myself of all this. To be clear, there was nothing wrong with my body in 2015, and there's nothing wrong with me now but I have made progress since that photo was taken so it reminds me to keep things in perspective. I just need to wear that piece of string in Bali and give zero f*%ks what anyone thinks πŸ€˜πŸ»πŸ‘™ #bodypositive #bodypositivity #vacayvibes #lifting #weights #progressnotperfection #strong #healthyliving #loveyourself #progress #transformation #throwback #progresspic #transformationtuesday #tbt #fitmom #fitnessjourney #screwthescale #iifym #macros #beforeandafter #bikinibodymommy #holiday #sunshine #loveyourskin

Kicked it old school this morning and did a quick upper body workout in my little home gym (kids toys and all) πŸ’ͺ🏻 I haven't been sleeping the best recently - I keep waking up during the night around 3am and then struggle to get back to sleep for ages, which means I then oversleep and run out of time to get to the gym. Lucky I have this equipment here at home so I can still get a session in πŸ‘ŒπŸ» Does anyone have any suggestions for staying asleep at night!? πŸ˜΄πŸ€” I'd be grateful for any tips πŸ‘‡πŸ»πŸ‘‡πŸ»
