The folks over @dublinpride just tweeted this pic of me and my BFF Niamh with the following caption – "The ladies @liftdublin7 are giving #DublinPride a lift! 💪🏼🏳️🌈 #loveDublin" – and I guess it's as good a time as any to tell you that I've started a personal training course @evolutionfitnessgroup and did my first week as an intern @liftdublin7 this week 😊 You'll probably all be aware that the last few years have seen a lot of changes for me – most of which centred around my discovering weightlifting, feeling strong and capable in my body and getting over the idea that "I'm just not a sporty person". Going into a gym several times a week, lifting heavy shit and sweating profusely has pretty much totally changed my attitude to my body, to the extent that now, when I try shit on that doesn't fit (I'm taking to you, Zara), I get annoyed at the shop, not at my body! Anyway, when I was doing a little reevaluating (or, really, a lot), I was trying to figure out what I could do with my time that I could be proud of – because that kind of value has been missing, more often than not, from my working life. I am not someone who has always wanted to be a personal trainer; I'm not someone who eats for abs. I'm someone who loves how my body feels, and no longer hates how it looks, and I feel like, if I could help other women (and men, I guess 😂) to achieve something similar, I would be pretty damn proud of myself. So. Now you know. Happy Pride, y'all!
