Loving life post gym sesh 😇

The sun 🌞 is shining and all is right with the world 🌎

And so, it’s tomorrow 😬

My gym bag is tentatively packed and I spent about 937 minutes trying to dig out my gym card 🙆‍♀️

It hasn’t really felt real until today, I spent a long time feeling sorry for myself about the gym closures, cross at the lack of discernment in political strategy and generally stropping... until eventually I accepted my fate of lacklustre home workouts and found some contentment with various distractions to fill the gap, and it worked fine.

But here we are. It’s tomorrow 😅

I’ve been randomly emotional about it today. Genuinely... (pathetically to most I’m sure 🙈) but listening to a hit-you-in-the-feels song this morning held back the tears, because for those who train regularly it’s been a real challenge.

During a pandemic/ scamdemic (delete as appropriate 😂) closing gyms when obesity increasing your chances of dying from COVID by four fold is a dumbass move. Especially when according to government statistics, you’re more likely to catch corona in your own home that at the gym. The problem of course, is a lack of influential politicians with shares in gym companies.

It was all highlighted very poignantly by ex Big Brother contestant Nikki Grahame dying yesterday following her struggles with anorexia caused as a direct result of not being able to visit the gym.

I get that it seems petty to many, but it causes a huge detriment to mental health.

I don’t need to bang on about the health merits and subsequent mental health benefits because it’s common sense.

Just don’t do it again please 🙆‍♀️🙆‍♀️🙆‍♀️🙆‍♀️🙆‍♀️🙆‍♀️🙆‍♀️🙆‍♀️🙆‍♀️🙆‍♀️🙆‍♀️

To the young and the vibrant who have sacrificed living up their precious lives at the gym and elsewhere, I solute you. We made it 🥰 maybe give my weak ass a hand re-racking my weights tomorrow after a beast-mode sesh 😝

And so concludes and uncharacteristically long rant caption. My apologies

As if the gyms are open on Monday, it seems so surreal! 🤩

I can’t wait, and also concerned I’ve got a lot of outstanding writing projects on the go.

We’ll all be going in weak and out of practice but we’re all in the same boat 🚣‍♀️ we can help each other out 🥰

Who’s anxious, who’s excited?

PS I had no clean gym clothes here obvs 😂😂😂

Let’s get a little cliche 😜 (for a change) 😅

“There are no limits to what you can accomplish, except the limits you place on your own thinking.” – Brian Tracy

Perception is reality and the greatest hurdle to overcome is always your own self-limiting beliefs.

You want it? Go get it 🤗

As if we’re less than a week away from going back to the gym and a bit of normality, it doesn’t seem real 😅

I can’t wait to see some people and get underneath the leg press 😅

If there’s one thing the pandemic has taught me, it’s to never turn down a night out in my life again 😉

Time is our most precious commodity, life’s too short for regrets and all that other jazz.

The weather has been as varied as my taste in music today 😂

I’ve seen beautiful sunshine, hail, snow and I think I missed some rain this morning. I think Blighty’s a bit confused today 🤣

I get sooo many messages about my music in workout videos, I’m eclectic. I love Five Finger Death Punch, King 810 and Slipknot but I also love Drake and Tupac, haha! Oh and The Business soundtrack 🙃

Anyone want to physcoanalyse that for me? 🤣

PS, my favourite song ever is At Last by Etta James, so beautiful. Give it a try 🥰

The protein is hiding 😶

Meal prep meal, halved plus kale 🥬 and beetroot = waistline-friendly convenience (and deliciousness of course) 🙂

Here’s a little diet hack if you’re looking to cut ✂️

Ready-made healthy or meal prep meals can sometimes be too high calorie (especially for women who eat six times a day).

So half the meal, add greenery and save money and time in the process too 👍🏻

It’s an unintentionally low-carb meal but off I love some salmon. Here’s a Cajun- spiced version with a side of spinach, which I can’t seem to get enough of at the mo.

Hit the spot 😍

One of my favourite things to do at the moment is order a Turkish chicken shish and make it into lots of meals for the next couple of days (because portions are astronomical 🤣).

Hands down my second favourite meal and my go-to takeaway for a healthy macro hit 😍
