#postworkoutselfie#sweatyselfie for @bbgmum30 @heyitsthemumtum @bbg_fit4life Today was #bbgweek10arms and I pretty much hated most of it with the exception of spider push ups. Strangely quite like these 🕷 Got myself out into the garden and little one joined in for a bit. My arms are so weak with my shoulder playing up so much so I'm looking forward to getting a leg day in tomorrow then off to a wedding and a night away from the kids. Can't wait to sleep. 😴 Tagged ladies for #postworkoutselfie
Hi guys, just wanted to share a little bit about where I am at the moment. Last year, when I started BBG and set up this account to keep myself on track, I lost quite a bit of weight and made exercise a totally normal part of my routine. That was LIFE-CHANGING. I also made some amazing friends who I feel so lucky to have met. 18 months on, I'm still managing to work 4-5 times a week, like it's just a thing I do, and for that I am amazingly grateful - I work a 50+ hour week sometimes, and I still manage to carve out time for it, because it's a priority, for my mental as well as physical health. The last few months have been a bit crazy for me - I'm a journalist, and elections and terrible tragedies have dominated my life. I also live with a journalist. And we decided to sell and buy and house at the same time, and we're now camped out at a friend's for a month before we move into the new place. So, yeah. My tummy isn't flat at the moment, and I'm struggling not to have negative thoughts every time I see my thighs in a mirror. I need a brief period of calorie restriction to get back on track, but I am adamant that I mustn't fall back into the disordered eating patterns of my 20s - plus, I have a busy job that is all-consuming and the team I run don't need someone who is focusing on what they are (not) eating all the time! So, here I am, ready to do my 3rd exercise class this week, setting out my intention to press the reset button a bit, in a way that is kind to me, and doesn't involve crazy restriction, but allows me get my body back to where it feels a bit better. That's not easy, but I think it is possible. Anyone else feeling the need to get back on track at the moment, say hi - we can help each other....and no, I won't be doing a Whole 30 again, or cutting out certain food groups, just getting back into routine and eating lots of fresh, healthy food, with some wine and treats on the weekend 🙏 #bbg#bbg1#bbg2#bbg3#bbguk#bbgover30#bbgmotivation
⭕️ I don't have time to eat healthy! ⭕️ This is probably the most common reason I hear when people talk to me about their health habits. So why not try overnight oats? Overnight oats are so good - taste yummy and take no time in the morning because it's all ready from the night before - and it only takes a couple of minutes anyway! This was 4tbs @mornflake organic oats, 1tbs @naturya chia seeds, 1tbs @pulsinandbeond whey protein, 2tsp @thecoconutcompanyco coconut sugar, 1tsp @adunaworld baobab mixed with enough @alpro coconut milk to cover, stir and then add some more! Make sure you stir thoroughly and add toppings of your choice - I added kiwi, strawberries from my garden, @rudehealth Coconut and chips granola, @sevenhillswholefoods Goji berries, @inspiralled Inca berries and @wholeearthfoods Peanut butter Leave in fridge overnight and enjoy in the morning!
Lying in bed at 2.30am with a very upset stomach dreaming back to delicious coffees on the beach at @chiringuito_tulum 🌴💚 The last month has been amazing - it's spanned 3 countries, 8 cities and countless amazing moments and I am eternally grateful for it all. That having said I think my body has really taken the brunt of all of this fun. I'm completely exhausted; I've had a migraine for days, an upset stomach for days and I can feel how low my B12 and iron levels are. Travelling is such a priceless opportunity, and I am so grateful for it but seriously, the privilege of lying in your own bed, making your own food and running at your own pace is the best feeling ever. It's the final few days in Mexico for me, and the final days of this crazy adventure. As sad as I am, I am so looking forward to some home comforts and some serious tlc this summer ❤️
"high on sweat and the hum of the wheel." this is the place where I get the sweatiest, try to push the hardest, and tune into what's happening in here > ❤️. I may come into class with a weight on my shoulders, looking for more answers to life - so sometime during this ride this weight has been lifted off and transformed into a brand new woman. does anyone else feel that way? have you checked out the new SMTO soul or even been to a @soulcycle class before? this place has been growing on me, so hard. it's the perfect HIIT in between BBG strength training workouts! welcome to san mateo, SOUL!!
• LIFE IS HECTIC, EMBRACE IT• ☝🏼☝🏼 This is more a reminder for myself at the moment. Sometimes I find life can get overwhelming, we have so much on our agenda all the time that we rarely take time out for ourselves. I only wish everyday off with my kids was perfect, not full of meltdowns and a million thing to do. But at the moment that is just life, so I am trying to stay present, meditate when I can 🙏🏼 exercise to help with my stress and simply be the best version of myself! 💕 #notperfect#alwaysimproving#selfcare#embracelife
