// The journey to ‘happy, healthy, fit, strong, lean, confident’.. whatever you’re striving for, it looks different for all of us, and it means something different to each of us. I feel as though while I have touched on this in the past, I’ve never truly opened up completely about what those things have looked like in MY journey, and for me, it has definitely taken a long time and a lot of internal/mental battles to realize that my ‘results’ were actually being hindered, somewhat by deeper more internal issues with my GUT, as opposed to just being ‘heavy’ or ‘not lean enough yet’.. it’s very easy to consume yourself by your thoughts and your perception of yourself, and it’s also hard to try and teach a positive mindset to others when you can be tearing yourself apart at wits end internally. What I have learnt now, and continue to learn, is truly how much the inside impacts the outside and sometimes the shift comes not so much from what you’re doing with your training and diet, but where your mindset is and the internal health and efficiency of your body. For so long I have felt, at times debilitated, in pain, broken, defeated, frustrated and embarrassed to share symptoms or things that I have been experiencing with my body, because ultimately, they made me feel very insecure, when my body would work against me, when I felt like my body didn’t reflect the hard work I put in, those things have been mentally hard to overcome, and I’m still in that journey, but now, I know I can use mine to help others experiencing similar things, because you really can feel so frustrated when you feel like you have no idea what your body is doing.. as vulnerable as it makes me feel, I want my (social) space to now share with you, my journey, to healing my gut, and finding my own empowerment, my own body confidence and my own results, and if that can help any one of you out there, then all the vulnerability will be worth it.. ✨✌🏽// .
