. ~I’m not here to be average, I’m here to be awesome baby~ One thing I’m learning about fitness, is to just go for it. Get out of your head, push your mind & your body will follow taking you into a whole new world of self accomplishment. There is nothing more satisfying than hitting a new PB or nailing a move after months of hard work & dedication. I’m so very grateful my body can move the way it does so why not use it?! 🤷🏼‍♀️ Loving this action shot of @natashabullock & I at @f45_stratford last Sunday. Sweat baby sweat! 💦 . . . . #throwbackthursday #tbt #fitness #fitfam #fitfamuk #fitlife #fitnessgoals #goals #f45 #hiit #sweat #fitspo #girlswholift #gymlife #nopainnogain #getstrong #workout #trainhard #gains #girlgains #crossfit #crossfitgirls #womenshealth #bodypositive #motivation #move #grateful #fblogger #justdoit
Throwback to the fall when all I did was train. I love that I can be my own inspiration instead of wanting my body to look like someone else’s. My body isn’t like anyone else’s, and though a lot of days I struggle with that, I’m happy it’s my own. #derpface . . . . . . #tbt #throwback #throwbackthursday #trainhard #swolfie #flexie #abs #abcheck #veingains #veingame #musclebabe #musclebabes #abbabes

How amazing is this @meatboxcom ?! 😱😱They sell selection boxes of different dried meats which are perfect for a gift or if you’re a meat lover like me, perfect for trying new types of jerky/biltong that you may not have tried before! You get so much in a box! This is the South African selection box. Biltong is my partners favourite food and he said it’s the best he’s ever tried!! Such good quality 😍 check them out!! I’ll be ordering another one for my boyfriends birthday next month😏 #realrecovery #fitfam #eatfamous #embracethesquish #bodypositive #balancedintake #iifym #foodgasm #girlswholift #recovery #carbsafterdark #ukfitfam #girlswithmuscle #foodlover #weightgain #balancednotclean #dessertporn #girlgains #instayum #eatingfortheinsta #foodiegram #edrecovery
Pre-workout lunch is a portion of my veggie bolognese, some basmati rice, peas and broad beans, plus a drizzle of sour cream 😋 ➖➖ I can’t decide what to do in my workout today and the weather is miserable 😩 one of those days where I just want to hibernate and eat chocolate 🤷🏼‍♀️ ➖➖ #postworkout #workout #exercise #weightlifting #girlgains #weightgain #vegetarian #bulking #foodporn #carbs #leanbulk #bodybuilding #crossfit #iifym #greekgains #fitness #healthylifestyle #edrecovery #peanutbutter #strengthfeed #macros #fitnessaddict #muscle #eattogrow #fitfam #reversediet #foodlover #gainingweight #leangains #girlswholift

🌧🏃🏻‍♀️ Rainy Morning Run 🏃🏻‍♀️🌧 Woke up really groggy this morning, and looked outside to see torrential rain. It was a big struggle to decide whether to go out for my run or not but I told myself if I didn’t go now, I wouldn’t go this evening after work and therefore would miss out on today’s training. I went out and didn’t regret it at all. When it comes to it, I really love running in the rain. It’s refreshing and sort of feels like a therapy almost. 🌧😌 Today’s run was a speed training session, 3x 6 minutes at my goal 5k pace which is about 8 minutes a mile. 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️ I treated myself afterwards to a good old peanut butter and banana smoothie and did a little leg strength session at home as I don’t have time to get to the gym and back today. • • • #runner #running #run #runningmotivation #runnersofinstagram #runchat #runnerscommunity #runnergirl #runnersworld #runnerslife #healthylifestyle #health #strenghttraining #strongwomen #training #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitspo #fitnessgirl #fitnessjourney #girlpower #girlgains #norfolk #rain #rainyrun
movement is good for the body, stillness is good for the mind 🌙 it’s only recently I’ve appreciated the skill of being completely still & the good it can do for your mental state. as much as I am passionate about moving your body & getting your heart pumping to look after your physical body, i am equally passionate about calming your thoughts & being peaceful to look after your mental body. mental & physical health rely on and impact each other so look after them both 💛
107.5kg/237lbs Weights feel a little heavy without straps lol.
When I first started out on this fitness journey, working out for me was all about the treadmill, elliptical and the bike. Needless to say, this girl was AFRAID of weights. They just looked scary. Sound familiar? Trust me ladies, weights are your friends...they love you and you need to love them back! I recently did a segment on @thesocialctv talking about why women should lift. Check it out and I’ll meet you in the weight room! (Link in bio) #thesweatmovement
What is sexy to you O Do you feel comfy in your own body, feel good naked, if yes, keep doing what you’re doing! O There is no one size fits all and if you are happy and confident in your body and skin, you do your thing! We shouldn’t always have to be trying to live up to the ‘ideal’, my ideal is completely different to someone else’s! O Our bodies are amazing things and carry us through so much, we should appreciate them as they are, no matter what stage of our journey we are at!
You know when you're trying to think of a good, motivational, educational caption but really you just feel like you're winning at life because you cooked your lunch without burning anything 🤷‍♀️ 🥑 (That emoji of an avocado doesn't mean I tried to cook an avocado btw. I tried once. It tasted like a tramps doodah. Anyhoooooow) 🍗 It does however signify that by building routines and getting in the habit of making healthier choices, your damage limitation when things go tits up is much more effective. 🍍 You will be less likely to stop at the petrol station and fill your face with whatever jazzy shizzle they've got on 3 for 2 at the till. More likely to stay 90% on your usual diet whilst you sort your life out. Less likely to let your training and exercise regime go down the pan 🍳 🌰 Eating good quality foods and keeping the gun show pumped will stand you in good stead for excavating your way out of whatever pile of shite you have found yourself under!

Building biceps 💪🏻😏 . . Loving recently doing Spider Curls as a wee finisher for biceps - if you’ve a work out buddy get them to add so resistance to some of your reps and really burn them out on the negative 😏🔥 . . Constantly trying to build so I can bring a better package to finals 💖 9 weeks till show day 🙌🏻🙌🏻

If you saw my Insta story you’ll see I just tipped a mug of hot tea over my leg (same leg I burn a few years ago on tea) I’m ok as I went straight for the cold water! Anyway at least I had the best breakfast this morning - that bar was amazing 😍 #food #foodie #foodporn #foodgasm #porridge #oatmeal #dessert #dessertporn #balance #diet #breakfast #chocolate #iifym #flexibledieting #strongnotskinny #girlswholift #girlgains #yummy #whitechocolate #caramel #chocolatelover #junkfood #carbs #video #recovery #new #candy #eattogrow #positivevibes #foodstagram @e.wedel @morrisons
Before, during and after my run this morning. Completed a @nikerunning interval session and it's set me up for my day at work. Feeling motivated and full of energy at the moment 💪
Throwback to last week because I am currently lying in bed feeling sorry for myself with a temperature, sore throat, headache and sickly feeling... 😴 So no fitness motivation today but I thought I'd share a fun fact about temperatures: Do you know why we get a temperature when we are ill? The bug/virus that has infected our body thrives optimally at our normal basal body temperature. Therefore the body raises it's temperature to create an environment which is too hot for the bug/virus to live in an attempt to kill it. This also sacrifices some of our own bodies cells and makes us feel poorly, but the body takes that sacrifice to try and kill the bug. Just another little thing I think that shows how incredible and clever our bodies are!
Raspberry and white chocolate blondies 😍 I baked these beauties yesterday to test out @seedandbeanchocolates products. And oh wow they are sooo good!Delicious, dense and packed with chunks of raspberry, vanilla white chocolate and raspberry’s.

Today I was not feeling my run. So instead of totaling forcing it, I upped the speed, knocked out a quick lil mile and moved on over to the stair master 👏🏼 • My goal of this week was to get a run in on Tuesday and Thursday so that I’m prepared for my next 5k Saturday. But cardio is cardio, so I’m not even mad 🤷🏼‍♀️ • 20 mins on the stair master later 💀 OMG I may have now found my new favorite torture machine. Definitely considering editing my training schedule to make some room for this more regularly. Anyone else surprise themselves when they like something in the gym they always thought they would never even try? 🙋🏼‍♀️

@gymsharkinfluencer This would be an amazing opportunity 💪🏼💪🏼
Gorgeous bowl of blackberry and fig porridge topped with almonds and a little golden syrup! Perfect for a windy summers morning 😍😍
I remember the feeling this time last year of realising I was actually going to study Physio in under a month after resitting and waiting for 2 years - so many emotions 😍😭 So proud of myself this year & the determination I had to push through and get what I wanted. Life’s not easy but if you want something, bloody go and get it. You won’t regret anything if you work hard ✨
Oh heyyyy back at work today and it's raining so the holiday blues are really kicking in. Before work I weighed myself to assess the holiday damage and filmed a lil' physique update that I'll share with you all later today.

I am not the strongest. I am not the fastest. I am not the fittest. I am however trying my best. . Leg day has left me in a mess 😂 recorded some bits so may pop that up over the next couple of days! It's nothing too exciting or fancy as leg day normally consists of the basics such as squats, deadlifts, lunges etc did chuck in a vile little superset though! Also... soz about the orangness of my arms... let's just say I am not great at fake tan! #legday #legworkout #squats #workout #inspiration #training #wod #fitnessblogger #calisthenics #crossfit #ukfitfam #fitfamuk #girlgains #strongnotskinny #girlsthatlift #girlswholift #strongwomen #fblogger #agameoftones #strengthtraining #fullbodyworkout #weighttraining

#killerupperbody done. Once again I had to force myself but I’m glad I did.

Having an absolute shocker of a week, feeling totally down on myself and like all my workouts are a waste of time. I know it’s a combo of a really challenging few days plus guilt over holiday excesses and I can’t seem to shift the negative mindset. Sooooo I suppose what I should be focusing on is that I haven’t just curled into a ball and stopped training (although that’s fine too), I’ve kept showing up despite the challenges. And what my eyes see (a weak, puffy, podgy, out of shape blob) probably isn’t quite the true picture either. I’ve tried to take the opportunity to introduce some new routines into my workouts, shake things and focus on muscle groups a bit differently. I think once this week is done and I’m fully back into my proper workouts in my own gym, I can get some more direction and start to build the gains back up... 🤞🏼#backtoit #strengthtraining #strengthandconditioning #gains #minorsetback #allinthemind #girlgains #strongwomen #morningworkout #hotelgym #inspo #thebestversionofyou #gymlife
I’m out of song lyrics. I’m out of puns. Seems a bit odd doesn’t it 👀 . . . . If you spot it bravo- you’re now my favourite human 🧡
Trying to avoid eye contact with my bank balance after all of today’s purchases 🤭 cos’ @myproteinuk have a major 50% off all clothing & other bits today including this seamless set 😲! Click the link in my bio to shop & let me know which sets you snap up! 🙌🏻

Be patient...... Something I’m guilty of not being myself a lot of the time. It takes 4 weeks to notice change in your body, 8 weeks for your friends and family to notice and 12 weeks for the rest of the world. Keep at it! #postivevibes #girlgains #gymlife #girlsthatlift #healthy #happy #gains #believe
Dieting Limbo 🙅‍♀️😱 - I've had a fair few clients recently torn between cutting down and maintaining. ✂️ My advice is always to pick your moments. Timing is key. 🗝 - If you have a wedding here, a birthday there, a long-weekend the following week... 🗓 It's pretty optimistic to assume you're going to navigate several 'events' scot-free. - A busy social calendar is going to slow your progress down, no bones about it. 🤷‍♀️ Meals out are guesswork, and at the very least you're probably looking at a fair few days at maintenance, not in a deficit. - But it's also bloody stressful. 🤦‍♀️ It's stressful to be at events that really are important and feel like party pooper who can't / won't join in because of your diet. 😳 - If your calendar is looking a lil busy (yey so popular🤭), ask yourself: 1. Can i diet later, maybe in a few weeks, when I don't have so much 'on'? 2. If not, will I regret passing up dinners and parties, or can my diet genuinely not wait? - Either answer is fine. Just TRY not to end up in limbo. - Going out eating & drinking a few times per week, trying to claw it back on your few 'free' days rarely works as well as simply carving out a few weeks of dedicated Diet Time. - If you opt to try to do both... You get the worst of both worlds. 💀 You FEEL like you're dieting, because of all the low days you're taking to compensate those high days. 😓 But you don't get the result. Because the inaccuracies creep in and slow you down. 😑 - Pick one 😊 and stick with your choice 😌 - 📸@harryranson
When you’re tired and just try to practice the traverse and @silverback_spartan thinks he’s David Attenborough 🙄😂
Training yesterday morning was a bit of a struggle! My body and mind were SO tired! I’ve now injured my shoulder too (not sure if I’ve mentioned this in my story?! 😂) and I have no idea how so I’m not going to train for a while until it heals 😭 I’ll post my cleans from the session in a few days but today I’m posting my new focus - double unders. I want to start practicing a gymnastics movement everyday for a month and I’m starting with these. I’m so close and I got relatively ok at them a while back but then stopped practicing and now I suck again 😩 Thanks to @gerhardmaz yesterday for wrapping me in a band to help my elbows stay in place - although as you can see I was confused AF! 😂 but I still got SO frustrated after not being able to do more than 3 or 4 in a row - almost crying at the end of this video - such a drama queen!👑 Gymnastics are not my strong point and I HATE it when I can’t do something because it’s not in my control. Except it is. And I’m going to spend a month working on these daily and prove that practice and hard work is the only way to achieve anything 👍🏼

Jam Roly Poly oats 🤤 - Because I know I said I was on a savoury hype.. but after a VERY bad night’s sleep, this morning, tired Carys wanted carby, comfort food 😴 - Started adding courgette to my oats again to create the volume without the carb sacrifice, what a macro saving vegetable you are Mrs Courgette (I’m assuming they’re female, because they’re helpful.. and i’m yet to be proven otherwise that men are as great 😏🙃) - A #zoats mixture cooked on the hob in half a @barebells.uk creamy vanilla pudding (I got mine from @postedprotein 🙌🏽), chunks of frozen strawberries & topped with water, transferred into my fave @coconutbowls - T/w @fuel10k granola for some crunch, freshly sliced strawbz & the leftover @barebells pud marbled with some reduced sugar strawberry jam 🤤 - Kcal 439 C/60 P/30 F/9 - A vanilla-y, creamy, strawberry-y dream for a Thursday am 🍓 - #thursday #thursdaymotivation #breakfast #oats #zoats #bakedoatsrecipe #vanilla #custard #jam #strawberry #barebells #volumefood #nutrition #healthylifestyle #cleaneating #macros #iifym #iifymgirls #foodie #bodybuilding #fitnessblogger #fitness #fitnessgirl #fitnesslifestyle #fitnessjourney #fitspo #girlgains #caryssianfitness

I’ve learnt so much so far on my ‘journey’ and as a result have achieved a more inclusive, healthy perspective towards food and fitness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am by no means saying I’m perfect; negative thoughts and doubts are often still there in the back of my mind... but spending less time being heavily influenced by what others are doing, or what they say we ‘should’ be doing, feels good 😆 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Realigning your mindset with who YOU are, what YOU enjoy and ultimately what YOU WANT to do is so valuable in being content with yourself and your decisions 😌. At the end of the day, forcing yourself to run when you really hate it, or depriving yourself of a food because a magazine told you it was ‘bad’👎🏻, is not going to get you anywhere with regards to mental health and a LIFESTYLE that you can enjoy in the long term! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is what I’m striving for, and to be honest I definitely need to remind myself of my own words sometimes🤷🏼‍♀️, but that’s what I want to post more about ➡️ challenging negative, destructive thoughts in order to work towards a more relaxed mind and approach to life 👊🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #challengenegativethoughts #mindsetshift #changeyourmindset #happymindhappylife #mentalhealthwarrior #enjoyfoodenjoylife #createyourownhappiness #doitbecauseyouwantto #realignyourmind #nomorefoodguilt #enjoyallfood #eateverything #healthymindset #healthymindsetgoals2018 #girlgains #bestmemotivationmonth #motivation #fitness #foodie #foodislife
