Do not apologize!
We are constantly being formatted, told what to think, dictated what to look like.
Many people do not have their own motivation and are looking to get it from someone else simply because they do not have their own goals. Perhaps they don't even want to do what they are being advertised.
They haven't left us the freedom of choice or opinion.
Set your own goals, look and live the way you want to, enjoy the things you love. Stop looking at others and think that they live a better life. Chances are they don't. Spend energy on your own life.
I do not want to go to my gym wearing fake eyelashes, pink leggings and feel flawed, because I listen to my rock and show up to Work wearing a hat.
My result is important to me, I meditate when I train. Why do I have to pretend to be glamorous? I can afford to have my own style.
Allow yourself to be yourself. Do not achieve others goals!
After all only one thing matters. At the end of the day when you are alone with yourself in front of the mirror.. Are you happy?
🏋️♀️ How To Make Working Out a Habit
It can be tough starting a new workout routine and your willpower might be tested along the way! Trust me, you CAN make working out a regular habit. ⚜️ Set goals
Goal setting can help you stay focused. Make your goals specific. Rather than saying ‘I want to get fit’, maybe you want to be able to do 20 pushups. Each time you reach a goal, set a new one. ⚜️ Find a routine you like
Pushing yourself through a workout style that you hate is not the way to form a healthy relationship with exercise. A routine that feels fun for you can help keep your interest and make it easier to keep going. ⚜️ Get a workout buddy
Having a personal supporter, or at least someone who will help keep you accountable, is a great way to make working out a habit. If someone is waiting for you at the gym, you’re less likely to leave them hanging! ⚜️ Be ready for setbacks
Maybe you aren’t seeing the results you’d hoped for at this point. Rather than dwelling on the negative, look at the positives of your new routine. Stay consistent until you see the results. ⚜️ Invest in awesome workout clothes
Treat yourself to that crop you have been eyeing, or those new pair of shoes. Once you put those clothes on, you are a whole new person who is ready to work it. Goodbye tired girl, hello fitness goddess!
Don’t feel you need to make all of these suggestions into habits all at once, but they can be a great way to get started.

🏋️♀️ Never, Ever, Ever Give Up!
I’m not going to sugarcoat it. The truth is that lifestyle changes aren’t easy to make, and that transformations don’t happen overnight. There’s a good chance that you’ll have occasional setbacks. But don’t even think of giving up!
If you never give up, then you won’t fail.
Each day is a new chance to start over. Begin each day with the resolve to make your new healthy lifestyle a priority. Results will soon follow.
DM me if you need any help, I'm here for you 😘
What Is Water Weight?
Simply speaking, water weight is when fluid begins to build up in our body’s tissues. Sometimes this can just affect particular areas of our body or our entire body.
What causes water retention?
I want to emphasise there can be several reasons as to why your body might be holding on to excess water. If you’re experiencing large-scale water retention, it’s really important that you speak with a doctor.
1. Standing or sitting for long periods
When we’re standing or sitting for long periods of time, gravity can cause water to build up in our legs and feet, which may lead to swelling.
Movement can help improve circulation, which can then help reduce water retention and swelling. If you work in an office or spend long amounts of time sitting, I recommend a quick walk every 30-45 minutes. You might get a drink of water, go to the bathroom or even walk around the office.
2. Diet that is too high in salt
Even if you’re not heavy-handed with salt on your food, a lot of pre-packaged or processed foods can be very high in sodium, even if they aren't necessarily ‘salty’ foods.
I recommend following a diet consisting mainly of whole foods, including fruit and vegetables. These foods contain potassium, a mineral which can help to counteract sodium and may help reduce fluid retention.
3. Hormonal changes
Some girls find they seem to hold more water weight in the lead up to ‘that time of the month’. If you tend to hold onto a little more water before your period, there are a few things you can do to try and reduce this.
Firstly, try to avoid pre-packaged, processed foods that are high in sodium. I know this is probably the last thing you feel like doing when those cravings hit!
My second tip for dealing with water weight and hormones is to drink water! Aim to drink around eight glasses each day, or more when you’re exercising or out in the sun. You can add some flavourings with fruit infused water if you find it hard to drink eight glasses a day.
My third tip for managing water weight is to try and do a small amount of exercise. Just listen to your body and do what you can do!
