I couldn't help myself with this song πŸ˜‚πŸ™ŠπŸ‘

I was 15 when this came out in 1999! Wow, that makes me feel old 😱
.
.
Anyways, these are some of my favourite glute activation exercises that I like to do before my lower body workouts. It's so important to start firing up the buns before you get into your heavy weights. Try them out before your next workout and let me know how go! Oh, and don't forget to squeeeeeze πŸ”₯😜

#KETO 🍳
.
.
My comp prep would be UNBEARABLE if I had to stick to low calorie/restriction diets to achieve a lean physique on stage. I've heard of some scary comp prep diets of under 1,500 calories 😱 that's basically a starvation diet! No wonder metabolic damage, binge eating and post comp blow outs are rampant 😒
.
.
Ladies, there is a better way! And it's called KETO. I have eaten this way for over 4 years now and it changed my life πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
.
.
If you want to build curves in the right places, but stay lean all year round whilst still eating a TON of food (because who doesn't love nut butter?!) then a ketogenic diet may just be the thing for you.
.
.
Have you heard of it before? Or maybe you've tried it but couldn't get results? .
.
Ask me any questions, I'd love to help you out 😊

Happy Easter weekend IG fam πŸ’œ
.

T-bar rows for the baby wings this Saturday! No chocolate for me this Easter because I'm 3 weeks out from my show with @wbff_aust but that doesn't phase me πŸ’πŸ»#wbffgc17

Nothing tastes as sweet as finally achieving your goal after so many months of dedication, sacrifice and hard work πŸ’ͺ🏼
.
.
I won't lie though, my oh my... how good are my ZERO SUGAR keto chocolate blocks going to taste when I step off stage πŸ˜‹
.

My full workout is on my Insta story now. Go check it out! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Being consistent and staying motivated doesn't always come easy! It's a constant daily grind and sometimes you just feel like staying in your PJs all day and eating a jar of nut butter, am I right?! πŸ˜‚πŸ™ŠSo when I feel like that, I do these things to stay on track!
.
.
βœ”οΈ remind myself of my goals, write them down in my diary and take at least one step towards it no matter how small and insignificant
βœ”οΈ look at old photos of myself before I started on my fitness journey or progress selfies and appreciate how far I've come
βœ”οΈtake a nana nap (because well, sleep cures everything!)
βœ”οΈbe kind to myself and do something fun or relaxing outdoors like a coffee catch up with friends, yoga on my balcony or a 15 minute meditation. It always seems to reset my mindset πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
.

How do you keep motivated? Let me know in the comments!

Goodnight IG fam πŸ’™

5 weeks to go! #wbffgc17 @wbff_aust .

Train, pose, eat, repeat! I love the dedication, the discipline and the drive it takes to compete. It's not for everyone, that's for sure! So excited to get on stage and celebrate the journey to getting there πŸ’™

This is the result of HARD WORK and CONSISTENCY!
.
.
As you can see from the left, I was not genetically gifted with a big strong booty. I well and truly had a pancake butt and barely weighed 40kg 😱
.
.
The picture on the right is me now, after 5 years of heavy weight training and eating (a lot) for my goals.
.
.
So don't get disheartened if you don't see results yet! I know what it feels like to want something so bad, to work so hard towards it and feel like you're getting nowhere!
.
.
But if little old me can do it, then you bet your ass you can too! (Pun totally intended).
.
.
If you want to see how I got super strong and grew my glutes, check out my instastory now for a glimpse into my training. My full workout is on there!
.

Enjoy 😈

HAPPY FRIYAYYYY πŸ’

It was nice to get glammed up for a day but I'm back to my messy bun and bare face, just how I like it! Now time to go lift some heavy sh*t πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ˜€πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

Keep grinding my beauties! πŸ’™
