Judging by my facials in this vid, I think it's safe to say my shoulders were screaming! 😀

Current shape on strict keto! πŸ™πŸΌ I've no idea what I weigh or what my body fat percentage is... I couldn't give a fuh ✌🏼The number on the scale does not define your health or your self worth. All that really matters is if you FEEL good! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Do you feel good? Are you sleeping well or do you wake up groggy and low on energy? Are you nourishing yourself or are you always hungry? Are you loving life or are constantly down and grumpy? Are your nails, skin and hair lush and glowing or are you breaking out and hair thinning? These are farrrrr more important questions that you should be asking yourself... rather than, "why haven't I lost those last 5kg?", or, "why don't I have abs yet?" πŸ˜” I have never felt better on the #ketogenicdiet (detoxing from coffee has been reeeaaaal tho!) 😫 The amazing benefits of keto allow you to stay in shape all year year round, effortlessly AND ensure you are looking after you body properly. Happy hormones. Happy mind. Happy body πŸ’œ

Happy Friday my lovelies 😘

#happyhumpday from sunny Queensland β˜€οΈπŸ‘β˜€οΈ I think it's safe to say those nut butter gains have been working out well! πŸ™Š I've been eating intuitively, not tracking food and indulging in treats on more than a few occasions (but still low carb high fat of course!) πŸ™ŒπŸΌ I have a really sensitive digestion so although I've enjoyed having balance and eating tasty things that I wouldn't normally, I've also been bloated, sluggish and generally not feeling optimal too... and for me, feeling my best is my #1 priority πŸ™πŸΌ I've done every type of keto principle going, from a relaxed low carb high fat approach to a cyclical ketogenic diet (incorporating some carbs), to full strict keto - all depending on my goals, my lifestyle at the time. But there's no doubt about it, I always feel and look better by eating strict keto. So I've ditched the carbs completely and have been strict keto for the last 3 weeks and loving it πŸ’œ Keep watching my Insta stories for updates on how I'm adapting, what supplements I take what my typical daily meals look like! 😘

Too skinny. Unhealthy.
Too fat. Unhealthy.
Too shredded. Ugly.
Too soft. Time to diet.
Too muscular. What a bloke.
Too skinnyfat. Do you even train?
Too perfect. Must be photoshop/surgery.

Have you been guilty of thinking at least one of these statements? This is what happens when you compare yourself to others. Jealousy, resentment and bitterness seep in like a poison. It warps your mind.
.
Yes, we are all visual creatures, we like to look at pretty things. And there's nothing wrong with wanting to look good and better yourself either.
.
But when these thoughts come from a place of me-against-you... the only person you are holding back, is yourself.
.
Everybody is on their own journey. We are all trying our best to do our best. Remember that the next time you pass judgement.
.
Strong women empower others.

14 months of hard work and LOTS of hip thrusting πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Don't be scared to lift heavy ladies! Only good things happen to your peach if you do 😜 My butt didn't transform from doing F45 classes, bodyweight squat jumps or ankle weight kickbacks!! πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
.
.
If you want a fuller, rounder and perkier tush, you have to lift some heavy a$$ weights πŸ’ͺ🏼 and the best way is a targeted weights program customised to YOUR needs by someone who actually knows what the hell they're doing!

My girls couldn't believe that they saw results within the first 4 weeks by actually training LESS! Yes, you read correctly... less exercise. No cardio, no crazy HIIT nonsense and actually eating MORE food πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

I have opened up TWO more spots for my 12 week custom mentoring program. Do yourself a favour and book your FREE consult with me if you're serious about getting results πŸ’ͺ🏼 (link in bio) πŸ’ͺ🏼

Starting to feel like my normal self again after a roller coaster few months. It's amazing how small changes can have a big impact! These three little things have got me feeling more energetic, stronger and generally happier πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
.
.
1. Sleeping 8 full hours every night and waking up naturally to the sunrise... not an alarm πŸŒ…
.
2. Drinking a minimum 3 litres daily and starting off my day with a warm lemon water & apple cider vinegar. Wow! Don't underestimate this one πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
.
3. Breathing/meditating for 10-15 minutes every day 😌
.
.
Do you already incorporate these things into your daily routine? What else gets you feeling good? Tell me below! πŸ’œ

Queensland winter sunsets πŸŒ… Is this real life? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ŒπŸ™πŸΌ

Hey you! Yes... you over there. Stop scrolling for just a tic. Just in case no one has told you today, I want you to remember something... πŸ’œ
.
.
You are doing great. Where you are right now, is exactly where you are meant to be. Don't forget how far you have come already! Stop stressing about the future and why you "aren't there yet". Remember that you are a limitless being with unbounded potential and as long as you focus on appreciating what you have now and continue to chip away at your goal, bit by bit, day by day... it's impossible not to succeed. Be kind to yourself and stop putting so much pressure on yourself! You are amazing and you deserve to feel good always 😘

I hope you have a relaxing Sunday my lovelies πŸ’œ

Two things to maximise your training results if you have lazy glutes πŸ™πŸΌ
.
.
1. Resistance bands for glute activation- my faves are: side raise, kickbacks, laying clams, supermans and the good ol' squat pulse πŸ‘πŸ”₯
.
.
2. Hip opening stretches and hip flexor release to increase your range of motion and correct your form... especially when squatting! πŸ‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Happy Saturday my lovelies πŸ’œ
