Literally had such an amazing upper body day. I love working out with my bff/gym partner @smileygymrat(she pushes me to be better and makes lifting so fun) but holy moly it felt amazing to have the gym to myself, and shut the world out. My spark for lifting had been missing recently. I still lifted bc again my bff would call my ass out if I tried to skip, or just knowing I had to go 🤷🏻♀️ but today it hit me like a ton of bricks and I’m ready to crush some mf goals.
Let’s talk goals-
My current goal is to build strength back into my shoulder. I used 2lb-5lb during my workout today. No shame🙅🏻♀️ but I’d also like to get back on my cut and loose just a weeeee bit more body fat. Having a goal is so important because it gives you a sense of direction. It’s hard to lose focus when you have direction right in front of you!
Walking done and dusted for today, saw some enormous fungi clumps along the way and a very pretty Mountain Ash tree with pretty pink berries 💕
I am thinking I might have to miss a week next week as it is getting hugely busy up there with all the Autumn colours so getting harder to park and I imagine it will be worse next week as it will be half term for most of the local schools. Long way to drive only to turn round and come home again....we shall see what the weather is like 🤔 if it is raining it might put people off coming 😁🤞

Fierce, Strong, Determined and with a power far greater than anyone could have imagined. - That's you!
I learnt this the hard way - when 5 years ago I was struck down with chronic pain after a car accident. No amount of medical intervention helped. All the tablets, therapy, surgery, physio, chiro, acupuncture, natural remedies. The excruciating levels of pain wouldn't let me escape. This was one of the biggest turning points in my life. I didn't like myself - not really. I rushed around getting the to-do list finished, working 2 jobs, worrying about nothing and everything all at the same time. I abused my body. Didn't respect or love myself.
The time had come.
I had to be with myself, my thoughts, the negativity, my beliefs, myself. Hitting one of the lowest points in my life changed everything.
I had a choice. I could change 'why was this pain happening to me' to 'why was this pain happening FOR me'
I fought - for 2 years! The tears, the sleepless nights, the depression, anxiety, the thoughts some days of I can't go on. I could not live with this pain forever.
But the one thing I never let overcome me and how I started to change. This would not be my life forever.
I knew deep down inside of me It would change, because I would change it.
I learnt some difficult lessons, I learnt being forced to slow down made me respect my body so so much. I learnt that in the end no one can save you. You have to save yourself.
You have to fight for what you believe in. Fight for yourself. Stand up for yourself. Have the confidence to speak out. Dream big, take risks, face your limiting beliefs head on and overcome them.
Respect your body, respect the relationships and the people you have around you that are there during the difficult times. Respect yourself. Learn to grow, embrace the lessons life is teaching you.
I empower you today - ✨Embrace anything that happens for you
✨Have a willingness to learn
✨A willingness to grow
✨Change the way you look at things
✨Change the way you look at life
✨Respect your body
One of my goals : Flexibility ! I’m not so bad at this, and I’m not far of the split (lateral). But I want to increase my flexibility at this maximum (I will start Pole dance so it’s better 😝) ! Be able to do lateral and frontal split is my challenge for 2019 💪🏻 (not my pic, but her booty and split are goals af 🤣)
Why a picture of my work boots you may ask...... well on my way home from work my tyre popped on my car...... now the old me would have stressed and cried but I’m sat here thinking how lucky I am to have amazing friends who have helped, and to the strangers that changed my tyre so I could come and get it changed. I would have also let this pull me off the wagon with food and I would have thrown the day away as a failure.
I guess the moral of this story is don’t let one small bump in the road get you down, that I could have been much worse off than I am and even though I have had to change my day to do an unexpected job I’m still here and still able to get on with my day.... 💪🏻🚗
Humility is not wanting less but rather giving all thanks to God and The Universe for all that you do have. Thank you God for giving me this brand new day, my healthy body, and the opportunity to serve you by serving others. Thank you Universe for putting me in the exact right place to meet the friends that I have and learn the lessons I need to be an even better version of myself. Thank you for all that I have and all that I am. 🙏🏾
Truth BOMB Tuesday 💥
🏐 I didn't stand out in high school sports, insecurities held me back in much. “Hi, my name is Heather and I’m an introvert.” Volleyball coach always yelled at me for being too quiet. 🙌🏼 It was a long time before I could comfortably call myself an athlete even after 10 marathons, 14+ half marathons, and several triathlons. I think it was my first Half IronMan in 2016 when I finally felt comfortable saying, “I am an athlete.” There’s a line for that at Tris! “Athletes here.”
💪🏼 Now, I’m on to new goals and you bet your ass I know I’m an athlete.
✨ Know what, you can do this too. I have zero doubt. I’m a single working mom of two busy tween girls. 🌀People ask... Why do I do this? Why do I get up before the buttcrack of dawn? BECAUSE IT FEELS FREAKING AMAZING & I FEEL SO STRONG! Oh, and I’m badass. 🤣 Yup, owning it! ❓Ready to join me in an accountability group?
