    Had an email from a friend this morning to say she keeps messing up and is getting fed up. Made me sad, honestly. "It doesn't matter how many times you skip the gym, how many times you eat too much or cheat on your 'diet', I will be here waiting for you when you're ready - to help you back up, dust you off and get back on track. You might doubt yourself, but I will ALWAYS believe in you xo"

    Start my "Nutrition & Weight Management" course next week, looking forward to that! I've actually ran for two days in a row for the first time in... ever? Drink & smoke free for 9 weeks now - feeling amazing. 2.5 weeks left on Livefit and then the last round of measurements and photos - so excited. I am loving my life <3

    Second day of phase 3, yesterday's workout was killer and I'm sure today's will be just as insane - 30 minutes of sprints afterward! Bwark :3

    Got my gym instructor assessment on Sunday - kind of terrified, but not scared enough to be panicking and getting my portfolio completed... hmm... starting week 9 of Livefit next week as well, really looking forward to it! 7 weeks drink and smoke free :)

    Had a fantastic workout earlier and walked home in a vest in the pouring rain - but I feel really burned out now and quite melancholy. I hate days like these.

    Just about to head out for an early one in the gym, delivery man should be bringing me new protein powder today as well (chocolate coconut, cookies & cream, raspberry and rocky road omggg) - so hooray! Took new photos last night and actually shed a tear of joy, pretty weird :P

    Double session today - chest and arms (weight room is closed again tomorrow ffs) - then home to eat a big old pile of mushrooms! Yesterday I ate something dumb like 1600 calories or something (need to eat more argh) and about 200g of protein - that cottage cheese is certainly serving it's purpose :D

    One month free from smoking and drinking now; feeling amazing. Treated myself to that fabled indulgence known as "skinny jeans" this weekend, absolutely love them! Hit a PR on my squats toda in the gym, 80kg (176lbs) might not be a lot but I felt like the hulk! Just drank a tub of cottage cheese and protein powder. Feel mega today!

    I missed a workout yesterday because the weights room was closed for construction stuff - they are re-opening it today though so I will be going in for another triple-session (catch up for yesterday, todays workout and also compensation for tomorrow's) Off to Essex this weekend to visit family - hidden bonus of being able to go to the Nike, Adidas and Reebok stores - yeeeeeeeeeah! :D

    Dear family, thanks for continually trying to undermine my progress - I really appreciate it, honestly. I love that you think I'm going to fail, it's just going to make me smile even harder when I succeed. I'm especially looking forward to "we knew you could do it" when I make it. You know what you can do? You can kiss my big muscular ass xox

    After a long stressful day, I thought that an early night might do me some good; so I cuddled up into bed and went to sleep... I just woke up and it's 1am, I can't get back to sleep. Argh!

    Am I the only one that's all "man, I sure love my family!" but then after spending time with them I remember why I don't spend more time with them? I made it very clear I've given up drinking and they still try and push me to have 'just one'. Nevertheless, despite the open bar, i stayed drink-free. Mega proud of myself right now :D

    Thanks to everyone who congratulated me yesterday, was so exhausted by the time I got home, I was asleep within a few hours! Finally had a good night's sleep so I'm just packing my gym bag and heading out to see my brother on his post-tour parade :) Have an awesome day everybody! :D

      I would say you are a bit more defined in your abs than the previous dated photos, but you are so fit at this point you will probably not notice many differences. BTW nice wonder woman underoos :p

      xprawn2833 days ago

      Haha, I wish I could be well behaved enough to eat a pile of mushrooms by themselves... they were baked with butter and garlic, so it isn't completely innocent... I didn't eat many though because I had 2 protein cheesecakes before I got to the mushrooms :3

      Unfortunately, a condition of sinful man is jealousy and envy. I hate to say it but, MOST people that know you really, secretly, want you to fail. It is normal because when others fail it makes us feel better about ourselves... sad, but true. Next time, help yourself by remembering that they actually are just really envious of you and your accomplishments.

    • img

      xprawn2838 days ago

      I know they want me to fail, it's what puts fire into my belly - it spurs me on to know that people think I can't accomplish something :) The majority of the people that really motivate me and push me to succeed out of a good heart are people who are already achieving the same things as me. I've never met a fit, healthy person who wanted somebody else to fail in their own lifestyle changes - it seems to be people who are busy making excuses that do all the armchair critiquing. Thanks Grizz :)

      MommaBear802838 days ago

      I feel your pain! My family is the same way! But it sounds like you're doing an awesome job tuning it out and surging forward! Take comfort in knowing that you're taking care of yourself first which is what you have to do before you're able to help others. Who knows, maybe you'll end up inspring one of your family member into improving themselves.

      I do honestly love my family (most of the time!) but if they're not going to support me, they can kiss my butt. I went to the gym after being with them and got in one of the most productive workouts ever! So thanks for stressing me out, I guess. But thanks to you guys, you keep me honest - keep kicking butts!
