I didn’t take many pictures yesterday because I partied and enjoyed the wedding celebrations a little too much and the day was a little bit of a struggle. So instead I’ll share this special snap from the day before of me with one of my best friends Rosie heading to the wedding ceremony.
Yesterday my body was angry but my soul is full of love and appreciation of how lucky I am to have such wonderful friends and loved ones in my life. This weekend was a “Lovefest” a time to really stop, relax and enjoy quality time with quality people ❤️❤️👌
Day 17 = 6x swims in the ocean to try and cure my tiredness and hangover. Beach walking and walking up the hill to our campsite (which was a slow climb when hungover)
NEW CHALLENGE = EXERCISE EVERYDAY 💪🏃🏊🏻
This month I’m going to do at least 30mins of exercise everyday! I’m going to try new types of exercise, try things that I’ve always thought I’d hate or thought I was too big or wouldn’t be fit enough to do. Let’s get sweaty, get my heart rate up and my body moving. #exercise#everyday#monthchallenge#bringiton .
🦋Fit all my clothes by my 33rd birthday
🦋Reduce my body weight by 20kgs
🦋Run 5km straight and run in a 5km fun run.
🦋Feel strong and confident.
🦋Perform a solo Burlesque routine
Insecurities. Everyone has at least experienced some sort of insecurity from time to time. One of the biggest challenges in my experience has been to accept them when they come and overcome them step by step with an open mentality. .
When I started working out I thought I was so skinny, to the point I disliked it so much and hid in big rooms in the gym to work out. When I realized this was not getting me to my goals I had to confront it. I bought headphones and went to the big weightrooms. I overcame my insecurity by dealing with my biggest fear and approaching it. I blocked out everyone there and just remembered I was there for MY own goals. I became comfortable going by myself afterwards and hitting the weight section every time 💪🏽 When I started heavy bulking then I thought “I dont look so good in a bikini” “I have bloating” etc. And I STILL get these thoughts today. Just because I’ve had a 2 year fitness journey does not mean I dont get insecure. I’m very camera shy and at first was so nervous when I got approached to get a shoot but I just went with it. I just try to keep my goals focused and blur the insecurities out. Sometimes you just have to step out of your shell. 🙆🏽 📸 @gongeph90
