Hashtags #kickupthearse for Instagram

So after a crazy holiday. I am back. And ready to focus in the gym and on my clients. Sometimes when training you can get fed up, or even start to hate the gym.. but having a well earned break has given me the #kickupthearse I needed.

Oh yeah. Love this. Especially as I sit at the library avoiding all distractions like Instagram to write this children’s book I’ve had up my sleeve for 18 months. And I’m writing it in poetry. Thanks @savonbartley and @lupefiasco for this gem. Head down and write. Write. Write. .

So having been giving a firm/inspirational kick up the bum from @strengthdirector about that intention I had in documenting my journey.
Truth is I've been watching everyone else's journey and letting mine kind of pass.
So since starting on 1st May this is where I stand. 45kg PB on Bench Press and 110kg PB (this week 💪 go me) and I cannot quite yet squat to save my pizza loving motorhead worshipping life.
Things have learnt about powerlifting as a complete newbie. 1. Throw out every little pre conceived idea you have about powerlifting and people who powerlift. 2. Everyone loves an eighties training montage. 3. Shag the bar 4. Show your logo 5. People are hugely supportive 6. Being out of your comfort zone with the right advice and guidance feels boss 7. Having soft hands isn't a thing any more 8. Being able to say I can deadlift more than I weigh to anyone who is or isn't arsed about hearing it is cool.

So if this remains quiet please tell me off. Part of doing this was to move away from self doubt and part of that is facing the fear of putting myself out there.

Yes. Frilly socks.

Had a shit few weeks so it’s kick-start time!! Been toying with this idea for ages now but after watching #thefastfixdiabetes I am looking forward to this experiment! I will weight in today, again in 7 days, then on the last day (day 14). I’ll post my HONEST thoughts/feelings on each day. On the show they do an 8 week plan- however I am experimenting a 14 day plan, then moving back to #slimmingworld for hopefully a fresh start- and a new start weight!...

It’s mad what a consistent diet and training plan can do to your body’s appearance! Would like to give a massive thanks to @rory_fitness for the diet/training plan for the awesome support over the past few months! Would highly recommend him for anyone who’s looking for a kick up the arse with their diet and training! #dietplan #fitness #kickupthearse #niceboxersbro #looker

When you feel like crap, zero energy and can’t think straight there’s nothing better than someone telling you not to give up, that you have to take a breather readjust your thoughts and continue to kick ass - it’s good to have people on your side that will remind you that you can do this #motivation #kickupthearse #positivemind #negativethoughts #dedication #headup #pushthrough #nolimits #keepmoving #2018bringit #bodybuilding #gymlife #trainhard #liftheavy #physiquegoals #goodfriends #pushpullgrind #fitness #figure #nevergiveup

Getting down to the nitty gritty paperwork and business ideas that I keep saying I will do... What else is a Saturday afternoon with no kids for?
Flatlay with my new sticker book that I absolutely love but have no idea where to stick them and last months @birchboxuk that I absolutely love the style of! Everything at the moment is green and has leaves on! #birchbox
In such a good mood even though some absolute idiot drove into my new Audi yesterday and dinted the front wing, alloy and passenger door and the police can’t get the evidence together because the cctv is that bad apparently! Oh brilliant so I will claim on my insurance and potentially loose some of my protected no claims! Ugh! .

The new week started yesterday and I have to say I am so down on myself at the moment. I was doing @aaptiv 5k beginner program but shin splints have got the better of me. This morning I kicked my arse with their boxing program for 40mins of crazy then a chill in the spa. Those people that know me know my coping techniques are appalling and I’m working on them but I’m letting things affect my progress so need the biggest kick up the arse by as many people as possible! #getassinshape #bulletjournal #aaptiv #shiftworker #weighinwednesday #kickupthearse

#ThoughtfulThursday

So in the the last week things have changed. I've been speaking to new #Paying clients. Not feeling as though I've fulfilled my #obligations and #potential. Figuring out how to #EatAnElephant only to remember that I have to #EatItInChunks. I have #BigPlans and I know that I'll execute them well; even around a family that has #CompetingDemands. However I've been #CoMentoring another #SolopreneurAndStartUp and it's really changed a lot. The biggest thing is that I've been #HeldAccountable for not only my actions but my goals and plans. Sometimes you just need a good #KickUpTheArse. However, #Time is a tangible factor. As infinite as time is, it is also limited and those around you will grow up and move on. During my session with my #CoMentee, it was clear that family time is important. Yes developing a new business and ironing out the kinks as you move on, is important but #FamilyTime was essential in nurturing relationships and connecting on a localised level. If you don't have family in the traditional sense, #LearnTheArt of #Connection and #Reconnection. It can only be a positive thing.

Wow that was something so beautiful to wake up to.. That someone that to be honest doesn't really know that well but you can affect...
Sometimes I do think am I really doing anything good or worth it and then you receive something like that and it kicks in that maybe i am...
Thank you @tommy.thrasher for your kind words ❤️

Very interesting app that I bought on a 4am #insomniac app binge.. I’m devouring the #leadership section first- it’s reassuring that the positive aspects of my role at work are on the right track and that the book is helping me to identify the tools and concepts I can adopt to help adapt and overcome my shortfalls. I just need to formulate the plan first! #easiersaidthandone #business #businesssecrets #appoftheday #alwayslearning #selfimprovement #personalgrowth #leadbyexample #fixup #stopwastingtime #entrepreneurship #kickupthearse thanks to @carolynnealex for reminding me to #stopprocrastinating and get #onit

At @kirkyspice my sister's for tea tonight, but I made it and my fussy youngest nephew at every bite. Made "italian" chicken & spaghetti. I use the term "italian" loosely as it has a few native ingredients in it...chopped tomates, garlic, mushrooms, red pepper, basil and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Just missing some spinach but sis did not have any. Washed down with a small glass (125ml) of 10.5% rosé (5). Lovely.

So I rejoined SW for what felt like the 100th time last night. I will not give up. We are human, we fall down and then get back up. My weight has held me back for as long as I can remember and I am the only one who can do something about it. I will have shit days where I want to cram everything in my mouth like a human dustbin, I am a comfort eater. I will not close the book though, today is a new chapter and I am the only writer.

Breakfast a bit late today. My sleep pattern is all to pot while I have been off sick. Lots of fruit (grapes, blackberries, a nectarine and flat peach) covered with my fave mullerlight at the mo. Plus a lemon & orange green tea.

It is done & dusted. Rejoined for what feels like the 100th time. This is a new chapter! First hurdle over and felt like screaming and wanted to die inside when my size 6 feet stepped on those scales. This is the heaviest I have been in nearly 5.5 years. Think it may be the kick up the tush that I need.

A reminder to myself.
Motivation seems to be lacking at the moment, after a 2018 of one injury after another it has become the norm to not put the physical effort in that I used to. Now those results are clearly evident.
Posting this to here means it is out in the open and now there is no excuse but to get my ass in gear.
Extra incentives are always welcome folks.

As of tomorrow I’m challenging myself to get back on top of my own personal nutrition.
When I wake up I always forget to update my weigh in so I’ve literally put my scales below the board so I write it in.
I’m going to check in every day with my insta story so that everyone will know if I’m slacking.. please shout at me if I don’t check in 👀. Why am I doing this? ..Lately I’ve been really busy and so stressed that the thought of tracking food and trying to prep meals was the last thing on my mind, I’m sure a lot of you can relate to this. Now that I have some more head space and time I feel ready to dominate and get back on track but I need some way of being accountable and I’m hoping this will work for me.. I’ve also already prepared some meals and pre tracked them so I have no reason to fail on the first day.. it happens often.
Of course, there is a goal!

I’m going to drop 6lbs in 6 weeks to get to a weight slightly lower than my competition weight so I can be in a surplus in the run up to a competition so I’m performing well.
Wish me luck 😊🤞 #nutrition #nutritionist #scottishpowerlifting #britishpowerlifting #iifym #macros #exercisemotivation #kickupthearse #prolife #paisley #glasgow #bnbf #naturalbodybuilding #ukdfba #onlinecoach #onlinecoaching #theplan #accountability #nutritiongoals #macnutritionuni #noexcuses #weightlossplan #slimmingworld #weightwatchers #52diet #gainzzz

#costa #5minstomyself #cake
So as I sit here with another costa I realise I have an addiction to #coffeeshops!! I don't even drink coffee!! So I thought I'd go out with a bang and go for a large hazelnut hot chocolate....oh and cake!
So costa I bid you farewell for a little while and going to save some ££ and some pounds of fat.
As of the #weightwatchers diet....well you can see how that's going!

Absolutely loving these fage Yog pots at the minute.

After a really full weekend I hit the working week with a bit of bump. Couldn't think of anything I wanted to post which didn't feel 'fake'. Will be using #humpday as a mental #kickupthearse day and will be putting my face on shortly. And maybe even some clothes.
In the meantime, here is a picture of a crocheted cactus. 😁
