Heleen's diary  ☆ Captured in photographs: this is my life 🗺 Holland 🏆 team Fox Gym 2nd JBC '17🇱🇺 4th SOC '17🌍 🔛 offseason, building my dreambody

4 months inbetween pictures, one of them with hardly any training sessions, struggling with my lungs and overall health. But I'm finally back in business, working towards stepping on stage as a bodyfitness athlete late 2018!

Good things and quality work takes time and I'm in no rush for that stage. When I make my bodyfitness debut, coach and I will make damn sure I won't bring a half-bikini half-bodyfitness package, but we will do it right. No concessions, no half-ass anything. That's how we do things at team Fox Gym.

Oh, how I cannot wait to see what the next months will bring ✨ #growbabygrow

One day, it just clicks...
You realise what's important and what isn't. You learn to care less about what other people think of you and more about what you think of yourself. You realise how far you've come and you remember when you thought things were such a mess that they'd never recover. And then you smile. You smile because you are truly proud of yourself and the person you've fought to become.

About last weekend in lovely Paris... #parisbaby #takemeback #citytrip

Warning: long caption ahead! ⤵

So these past weeks have been incredibly busy. I'm trying to juggle my job as eventmanager (which is super nice as well as sometimes super challenging), writing my thesis, getting healthy again (still not where I need and want to be after ending up in the hospital a few weeks ago), my household and working out while also having somewhat of a social life. And guess what? I can't. Not all of the time. And that's okay.

We sometimes expect so much from ourselves that it's vital to take a step back and reflect on what we're doing every once in a while. For me, making sure that my health gets back to normal is prio #1 right now. If that means that I need to take a few more restdays in a week, then so be it.
Back in the days I would totally freak out about that and push myself to go to the gym those 5 or 6 times a week, but I decided to give myself a break. My job has unpredictable hours (and often till late!), that thesis isn't writing itself and my body is def still not working with me. Forcing myself to go to the gym every day won't make things better and neither will stressing about not feeling able to get all of my workouts in. I go as often as I can without overworking myself so that when I do find the time and energy to hit the gym, it's a killer sesh that totally helps me unwind and makes me feel super energized.

In the end, improvement season is all about growing, both physically and mentally. To me, learning to listen to my body means a huge deal. I've crossed my own lines several times in the past, hit various walls, always crawled back up and learnt from all of that.

So for now, I have my focus on overall health and wellbeing. The gains will come in time. And I have plenty of time. I'm in no rush.

My time will come. 💖

Happy #humpday!

She was fierce, she was strong, she wasn't simple. Sometimes she barely slept. She always had something to say. She had flaws and that was okay. And when she was down, she got right back up. She was a beast in her own way, but one idea described her best.

She was unstoppable and she took anything she wanted with a smile.

Never stop looking up.

Sooo last week has been all about rest and revovery. I haven't seen the inside of the gym since I ended up in the hospital this past weekend. I'm still on meds fulltime, too, so I hope to get back to working out next week...
I used to worry a lot when something like this would happen. But I've learnt that the worrying usually does more harm than the not-working-out. So instead of worrying I spend my time and energy on the good things, like enjoying the weather and working from home whenever I can. I'll be back in the gym as soon as my body allows me to ✌

I'm aiming for the "she's a badass and cute as hell, but I wouldn't touch her without asking" look.

After not seeing the big boss @maartenfvos for 2 weeks I was happy to be back at my favourite playground @foxgymfam for an intense back sesh. My workout consisted of compound- as well as isolation exercises to work on that desired thick, v-tapered back!

There is def a lot going on underneath that off-season fluff 🐷 And we're just getting started! #biggerisbetter #foxgymathlete #frombikinitofigure
