Accountability post ‼️ 7/8 months ago I was in the @ukultimatephysiques finals for Bikini - I was about 60kg with a six pack.... This picture is me today... in-between then and now I've done what I want, eaten what I want, trained when I want... and you know what - I'm happy!!! I've seen more of my friends - been on 3 amazing trips and have had no restrictions!!! I feel strong and so many people have actually said I look healthier (this judgement has been based on me wearing clothes πŸ˜‚!) That holiday is now over and I want to cut a few pounds, bring back a bit of definition and bring back a little purpose to my training πŸ‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ So, today I start the @barbellebody plan which has now introduced a 'lean' programme... weighing in at 76.1kg I'm excited to get started under the expert plan of @superfitkit
Day 1 for me was just a swim... bring on the weights in Day 2 πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻

Top Left - in my early twenties, went to the gym and did weights occasionally however my main form of exercise was playing football and lifting a pint, was pretty skinny with very little shape and ate what I want....
Bottom left - tail end of last year, the leanest I've ever been. Approx 60kg and about 10% BF, ripped and working out 5/6 times a week with a mix of cardio and weights - mostly weights and on a strict comp prep diet...
Right - this month after hitting 33, lifting heavy and working on growing some muscle. Much more shape to my body. Only training 3x a week as part of the @barbellebody plan lifting heavy, eating 80% clean but allowing for treats...
I'm not one to say I prefer one picture over the other... they're all at different stages of my life carrying out different training. As long as I have a good work/life/training/food balance I'm happy!! When I was younger I loved going out partying, when I was lean I hit my goal of having visible abs for once in my life, now I'm enjoying lifting heavy and feeling strong!
Do what's right for you in that moment in time and be proud of whatever body shape or size you are - as long as you're happy - that's what counts! πŸ’«βœ¨ #fitness #exercise #motivation #gym #fitchick #fitspo #fitlife #football #lifting #bodybuilding #bikinifitness #bikinicompetitor #lean #muscle #ripped #strongnotskinny #strongwomen #girlswholift #girlswithmuscle #happy #lifestyle #thefitnesswanderer

----------------------------------------
One way to save on travel is to shop the essentials out of season!
These will do me nicely for my first time snowboarding in Sweden at the end of march and for some skiing fun at @snozone Milton Keynes in the coming weeks

Exercise: Pin squats
When I first tried this exercise I didn't have as deep a squat as I thought... I felt like I was going deep but after Reviewing footage I've realised I REALLY wasn't! A pin squat is a great way to increase the power at the bottom of a squat.
I'm now squatting much deeper and my form is so much better πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Szechenyi Baths, Budapest. It's just wrong to visit Budapest and not experience one of their Thermal Baths.... there's plenty to choose from dotted around the City.
Loved Budapest, great city and wicked trip with friends ❀️

Deadlifts... a staple exercise. Great for building total body strength and size...
4x10 reps and keeping it light ready for another heavy week next week πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
Don't substitute form for ego...

"Different roads sometimes lead to the same castle"
I believe in fate. What will be will be. Choices we make help mould us but eventually we will end up where we're meant to be.
Or in this instance, the A21 from Hastings gets you to Battle Abbey...

First attempt at a kneeling/pike handstand push up...
Love trying out new exercises.
Always good practice to video your form to see where you can improve and compare it to future attempts... #fitness #exercise #fitspo #fitchick #bodybuilder #girlswholift #strongnotskinny #strongwomen #girlswithmuscle #pushup #motivation #muscle #bikinicompetitor #trysomethingnew #fitnessmodel #lifestyle #barbellebodyplan #thefitnesswanderer

Set a goal. Fucking work for it. Put the effort in and don't look back. Allow yourself to rest. Allow yourself to have fun. Just keep working, keep grinding, keep pushing yourself.

Have been slacking recently with my website and blog - a Review of July is now up including Spider-Man Homecoming, Wonderland the Musical, a day trip to Hastings and Battle and my birthday.
Need to get reacquainted with writing and my mac πŸ’» to get some regular content up. Life tends to get in the way - full time work, training, dogs, research, travel plans... gotta plan, prioritise and keep my eye on the prize! Practice, practice, practice - write, write, write...

This little guy is always finding tennis balls 🎾! We'll just be walking along and all of a sudden he throws a ball I've never before seen, at my feet hoping for a bounce so I can kick it into the distance only for him to chase and repeat the process!

If I've taken anything away from competing - it's this..... rice mixed with a dash of salt and peanut butter! ❀️
Omg... I remember the first time I tasted this backstage at @ukultimatephysiques and I couldn't believe that I'd missed out on tasting it for the first 31 years of my life...
Now, every so often - I have it as a little treat!! πŸ˜‹

My #tbt today is again back to Athens. This was an amazing view of the City with the Lycabettus Hill in the background.
I visited Athens back during the unrest and riots and despite this it is still one of my favourite trips. The culture, the sights, the scenery, the food... I need to get back to Greece πŸ‡¬πŸ‡·!!
