40 mins moderate effort ✅ .

Followed this with a return to the gym after around 12 months away! Almost forgot what to do 😂. Returning wasn’t as bad as I expected though, will hopefully be able to maintain some sort of consistency with #strengthtraining now I’ve gone back. I really felt the benefits to this kind of work in my running a few years ago.

Probs time to give my roadies a 🧼!

Over the last few years, I’ve learned how strong I am and how much I can grow if I just focus on being a better version of me. It hasn’t been easy. One up, downwind sideways journey, and one hell of a struggle with some skinned knees. But if I can do it through everything, each and everyone of you can too!!!
.

Happy Taco Tuesday Love Bugs! And embrace your journey! ✌🏼♥️💪🏼

Good morning loves and Happy Tuesday!! I did a little more meal prep last night and this is my next meal for today. Grilled chicken, salad, and a small red potato 😋 I’m sure everyone is already meal prepping but if you’re not, you really should be. Especially if you have a goal of gaining lean muscle mass or loosing body fat. Without proper nutrients and frequently throughout the day, it’s not going to happen unfortunately. Also, when meals are prepared and ready to go in advance, you won’t be “stopping to grab something”. Preparation and organization is the key to success! 💯💯😊 #mealprep #healthyeating #cleaneating #competitionprep #winning #preperation #successful #fitness #fitgoals #fitbodies #strongnotskinny #personaltrainer #coach #nike #gymsharkwomen #kush #lalisa

Today was mobility, pump ... now tricep and shoulders..... and finishing off with training camp and abs.... then going to get in the spa for the rest of the day....... 😜#nevergiveup #prayhatder #strongerthanyouknow #thebodycanalwaysdomore #addictedtothegym #gymislife #traininsane #strongwomen #strongnotskinny #thestruggleisreal #prayharder #fitlife #itsalifestyle #thejourneycontinues #getsome #notyouraveragegirl #unapologeticallyme

Just START..

Just START..

There are days when I hit things for fun and then they are days when I hit things because the day was just POO!⠀
⠀
I found though, it's way better to hit things in RH30 FIGHT instead of wally world⠀

LOL⠀

My PTSD is sky high right now, so today I have done two big work outs in the gym, and they have felt amazing! Honestly feel stronger than ever right now! .

Oh how I’ve missed stretching 🙆‍♀️👏🏻
-
In my own opinion everyone should stretch daily, but why?🤷🏻‍♀️
-
Stretching increases flexibility and helps with your range of motion...
-
It also improves performance in physical activity, increases blood flow to your muscles and improves your posture 😱
-
Not only that but it helps to heal and prevent back pain, great for stress relief and helps you keep a calm mind 🧘🏻‍♀️ -
-
When I first started my fitness journey I didn’t stretch at all and didn’t realise how much it would benefit me!!! Oh I was so wrong and so glad I eventually started stretching before and after sessions and on a day-to-day basis!!🤸🏻‍♂️

Workout complete ✅ I slept light, and just shot out of bed and hit play. My personal theory on working out, is just to move my body when I feel like it. Right now nutrition is the most important. The long term goal is to find the balance eternal movement and nutrition; but I need to focus. What are your go to exercises? .

Enjoy the process 🦚
First part of vid 82.5kg with a struggle - second part of the video 90kg with absolute ease 💪🏼 Currently on the train to enjoy a few days away from Leeds and responsibilities🤣

I know the next few days are going to be ❌❌❌❌ for food and at first this made me sad because I didn’t want to let myself down 
But I’ve had a change of heart and I am going to enjoy my days away regardless if I put a few pounds on 🤷🏻‍♀️ Back on it with HEAVY deadlifts on Friday with my fav @findyourhabit going for 130kg before comp 💪🏼
- cut starts again on Friday 🥗🍌🥦🥕🌽 #puregym #puregymleedsnorth #strongwomen #fitnessjourney #strongnotskinny #puregymleeds #gymmotivation #gym #powerlifting #strongwomen #girlswholift

"If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed"! I love this quote bc every journey towards success starts with a single step! And the hardest part of any new challenge is actually geting started. 
I made one simple choice to say 'YES' to myself. I pushed past my fears and self doubt. In turn, I have freed myself from 45 lbs of toxic fat, exhaustion, and the misconception that this health decline was part of getting older. 
I have found my confidence, my energy, freedom from constant worry, an outlet for my stress, my rested and strong body, and renewed faith in my personal growth. I feel fantastic and I want everyone to know it is possible for you too. It's never too late to change things you dislike about yourself and live your best life.

You just have to decide what it is you truly want. Decide with all your heart and soul. And make a plan of how to get there. And I can certainly help you with that. 
Have the courage to believe in you!

Gooooood morning fit fam!!!!! Happy Tuesday it’s my Monday and I haven’t chased my gains for 4 days so today I skipped sauna and killed arms, shoulders, & back. #backtoreality #chasinggains #fitmom #fitlife #momswithmuscles #fitandtatted #momswholift #veins #veinspoppin #musclesandmascara #momswhoworkout #strongmom #thickfit #lovetheskinyourin #selflove #strongnotskinny #progressnotperfection #consistency #pushyourlimits #messyhairdontcare #gymlife #gymface #chuzefitness #chuzefamily
a smile is the best makeup any girl can wear. — 
insecure & vulnerable, is an understatement. no makeup & almost no piercings. this is the real me. the erika most of you don’t get to see. social media now a days is a place to post the “perfect selfie”. well needless to say, after i took this i realized that the “perfect selfie” should be the one that makes you feel vulnerable and even insecure. because, what better way is there to let people see you for who you are?

記得最初好唔鍾意練背 
連夾背都唔識 淨係識用手力去拉🤦🏻‍♀️
有無助有埋怨有氣餒 但我無放棄
我成日諗「人地得 我都一定得」

半年後 我個背依然係唔勁 係唔顯眼
但終於有d野睇下😭 終於唔再係乜都無🔥

#我要將ig第一條片獻給我的背
#我個背有有一半係男朋友的
#增肌減脂 是一輩子的事

🌿💫 Woke up anxious as heck over my body/weight/caloric intake from yesterday :( Sooooo, I decided to post this as a simple little reminder to me and anyone else who is struggling that #1) food is nourishment for my body and mind and not some sort of treat that i only get occasionally and #2) to remind us that we deserve to love ourselves and our bodies even when our brains scream the opposite. .
.
.
Today, I choose to walk away from the scale. I choose to tell myself affirmation after affirmation that I am okay, even if I don't fully believe it in the moment. And above all, I choose to eat. To live. To take up space with my big ass anxieties and emotions and to love myself the best I can through this.💫🌿

I couldn't choose just one flavor this morning for my #glutenfree bagel. These are both a couple of my favorite toppings; cream cheese with jam and cream cheese with cucumber. --
Maybe I'm a bigger fan of tea time than I thought?

When life gives you shit, you go to the gym and get a new 1RM snatch PB💪 I'm buzzing to have finally hit my snatch goal of 40kg and then managed 42.5kg as well today! Didn't quite manage 45 but I got under it so I know it's not too far away🙌 Glad to be back at the gym again after a few days break, I start to realise how much I miss it😂 Also happy to be seeing some body progress: swipe for baby gains on my weaker arm😍
