Back at it after 3 days off with suspected food poisoning.. still not 100% there, strength wise, but it feels SO good to be up and moving again! 😁 and eating PANCAKES! (Or something other than toast and greek yoghurt!)
She’s taught me how to love & how to protect. My beautiful little girl 😍
Sunday morning. Sleepy eyed. Coffee. Barrys! Bae kicking my arse back into gear after being a leeeeetle bit hungover yesteday... 🤔😏 Off for some lunch to celebrate my besties 30th. Have a good day 🙌🏼
and her tips to travel healthy and travel happy! ✈️😊 “So far, this year alone I have 🏃🏻♀️ over 200 miles, driven over 10,000 miles, and flown over 220,000 miles. Needless to say, I get around.
As a flight attendant I travel a lot for work, I also love to stay fit and active meaning my on-the-go nutrition needs to be on-point if I am to sustain the energy I need to stay on the ball. Not just for working out but also to be the best I can be at 38,000 feet and give me energy to explore new cities.
Exploring, I believe is best done on foot. Running is a great way to see a new location and enjoy some fresh air, especially before or after a flight - it is one of my favourite things to do when I am away. I love to use Free Soul’s vegan protein as my light, pre and post running fuel. When mixed with water or mylk it’s light enough to provide me with enough energy, minus the stitch.
To me, Free Soul’s protein is the perfect way to get the essential nutrients I need when I am away from home. There are not many plant-based protein supplements that taste great simply mixed with water – in fact I’m yet to find another that tastes this good, hands down. For me, this is vital, as living out of a suitcase 90% of the time I definitely don’t have access to frozen 🍌 and nut mylks, let alone can I fit a blender in my suitcase!
My friends, family and passengers can also benefit from my increased energy levels and good mood, which comes courtesy of Free Soul’s specially formulated blend, designed for us women. Maca is one of the natural mood enhancers that can be found in their ingredients list, which can really help me out on those 14-hour long flights when my energy levels are running low, along with my oxygen levels. That’s why I never travel without it!
And before you even ask, no I can’t get you an upgrade! Unless of course, you happen to have brought with you some Free Soul protein in your hand luggage”. 🙌
This week has not gone to plan. I let stress get to me. Sickness and holiday at work meant I was doing 2 people's jobs by myself. I was exhausted and my sleeping pattern was out of whack (just under 5 hours last night). And whilst these are excuses, this week I was happy to use them.
I was supposed to be on week 8 of my #fbgjourney
, I managed a total of 3.5 workouts. I was going to play catch up today, but thought "No. Re-charge and then reset on monday". Today shall be a wellness day! 💆🏾♀️ Watch a film, enrol to one of the many online courses I have looked at over the last few weeks 💻📚 and try and relax! 🧘🏾♀️ Maybe a bit of a stretch needed later as my shoulders are tight, my hips and quads are tight and my knee has been playing up since Fun Colour Run last sunday 💜💙❤🧡💛💚 (may have rolled my ankle and landed on my knee 🤕🤦🏾♀️) So, to my accountability partners @fbgkim
: well done for kicking this week's butt!! 💪🏽 And i will do better next week, when I start week 8 of #fbg
GOOD MORNING Sunday! How is everyone today? Few people have been asking what I do... so here’s a few reasons why I do what I do!! But what do I do? Help others find a program that works for you, help with meal plans, motivate you to be your best and anything I can to help you reach those goals!! 💪🏼✨👍🏼
Spending my Sunday attempting the 10,000 calorie challenge again with @timmstime.
It’s been a while since I put myself through this but trying to make my workouts fun and challenging in anyway I can at the moment. Sometimes you can walk into the gym with all the best intentions but then just feel like your walking around trying to find your plan. Pre planning, just like meal prepping is key to me having routine. I need to have a plan for the week to make sure I prioritise myself, workouts and progress. Otherwise I’m sat having ‘just one drink’ after work and eating badly through the week. .
Fail to prepare, prepare to fail! .
Cheesiest grin in da worldddd. Just over here pretending it’s not Monday tomorrow 🙅🏼♀️🙅🏼♀️ #Denial

When I first started ‘properly’ lifting weights it was because I tore a ligament in my knee and the plyo part of the activities I loved (body combat 🥊, grit etc) were just too risky. I really didn’t wanna put on fat by sitting around and not working out so decided I’d test out the ‘weights can keep you lean’ thing, along with the arm bike at the gym I used to go to. I had 4 moves that I used to do in sequence and felt comfortable with: shoulder press, overhead tricep extension, bent over row and bench press. I used the same 10kg weight(s) for each of them so all I needed was to find a bench and I was away. Weeks went by, then I started reading up in other movements to work my shoulders, chest and back and gradually felt confident enough to try them. And that was it, the rest is history. I learned so much along the way, got familiar with form and good habits, learned how to actually make the muscles that I wanted to target work, and now I can walk into a gym anywhere and give myself a full body blasting with a few seconds to eye up the kit. And if there’s no kit.. I can handle that too! Do I know everything? no. Will I ever? Also no. That’s part of the fun! -
It all comes with a lot of patience, finding something you are comfortable with and sticking with it. Regular exercise will be one of your greatest achievements, you can do it!
If you’re stuck with where to start, I’m coaching classes every day apart from the/fri next week so send me a DM and we’ll get you into a fun, supportive class where you can see real results and feel great. -
