There is nothing in the tank. NOTHING! I’m lacking in energy at the moment but I had to move my body, because for me healthy body = healthy mind. So I needed to bring out the big boy - my unicorn juice! (Or performance energize!) to get this work out done.
All I can say is ALL THE PINEAPPLES!!! 🍍🍍🍍🍍
#medalmonday so I think I’ve finally processed yesterday! #longpostalert⚠️ It was a strange one...after the run show and being up at 5:30am on Saturday I felt absolutely shattered come Sunday morning. Stayed in a hotel sat night and didn’t sleep well at all, my hopes for a good race were slowly seeping away...then the weather ❄️...I felt sick in our hotel room and was pacing feeling all hot and bothered, I really thought I might DNF! Sounds all very dramatic to then go and #pb 🥇
I know I can run a half marathon but I really am working hard to up my pace and be a better runner I really felt my anxiety was just up there yesterday! I know I should just enjoy it and there will always be another race but I had to dig so deep at mile 11, all I thought about was the message from Steve Edwards on saturday...pain is temporary but victory is forever...if you want something bad enough it will hurt to get it! To see @tarikq77 at mile 12 with a gel was just gold! I got there with wobbly lips crossing the finish line and a massive 5 min pb! So happy!
Hella sweaty post leg day post😏🍑💦 ___________
So today I went to to the gym with a specific workout in mind, but of course the gym was WAY too busy to do what I had planned🙄 at first this did kill my mood a little because who likes fighting for weights and machines am I right? But then I just shook myself and worked with what I could when I could and honestly it turned out to be one of the best workouts I’ve had in a VERY long time😍 combining @busybee.carys ‘s #UFBG with my own leg day and my workout partner and myself definitely felt the burn🏋🏼♀️ OHHH AND I REACHED 2 PB’s TODAY TOO🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 ___________
You all know I struggle with a very painful huge bloat that can last for daysssssss! Well on Thursday it made a reappearance and it’s still here so I’ve done some research and finally think I’ve found what it is🙌🏼 I believe I have undiagnosed Gastritis which sounds more dramatic than it is. Basically this just means that my stomach lining is irritated and swollen which causes the bloat, pain and nausea. This can be caused my infection but it can also be a recurring thing due to stress which we all know I’m no stranger to😂
It can be treated from home which is great news for me, it just means I need to start taking antacids an change up my eating habits and this will help ease the symptoms which is great news🖤🖤🖤 ____________
All in all a very positive start to the week and I can’t wait to see what else is to come✨
Ohh I also started to use my @freesoulsistas vegan protein blend today too so there shall be a HONEST review coming on that v soon for ya my dears!😍 ____________
I love you all and I hope you’ve had an amazing start to the week😘 xo
Absolutely love these photos of @torieleadbeater, before and after our epic trek last weekend!
Our 'epic trek' consisted of walking down a very steep hill (that was not recommended) to the cafe, sitting in the garden enjoying our hot (mine was luke warm at best) drinks, round the gift shop and back up the steep hill (admiring the deer). (exhausting I know haha)
