"You must tell yourself, "no matter how hard it gets, I'm going to make it" ".
Just because a lot of people love numbers : Left: 48.5-49kg around july 2016 , Middle : 62.5kg march 2017 ( highest weight) , Right:57-58ish april 2018.
For me , this journey was more of a psychological battle than a physical one. It was all about my mind trying to beat an eating disorder , trying to put aside the side effect a past severe depression had on my inner self, trying to believe more in what I was able to do , trying to be happier. I could talk about the gym and it's God damn pieces of iron all day long if I had to. Because they've taken me this far. They've trained me such way that I have a totally different mindset to the majority of young people these days , they've taught me to come to a different bar on friday and saturday night and healed my very open wounds caused by my disinterest in my own person in the past. -
I've changed ! As scary as it sounds I did. I used to be this type of person that was so afraid of change that I could hide in the corner of my room for weeks . I still am to some extent and in some situations. But I've improved , massively. I ve gonne through hell and back , injuries , tears , broken heart , bullying , critiques and yet I am still standing and smiling each and every God damn day . -
Everyone can do it . Time? What is time?. All you got is today remember it . Make sure you do something for YOU! Make sure YOU are happy ! This journey is all about YOU!

Something new I picked up in a recent order from @proteinpickandmix is @phdnutritionuk smart jack protein bar/flapjack
I do enjoy a good flapjack and when I say flapjack I mean the soft/sweet ones you get from a bakery and just devour the whole thing. PHD have entreated another product market and if this is anything like their protein bars we won’t be disappointed. The bar had your usual flapjack look with some oats showing at the side and a good helping of chocolate drizzle on top. In terms of texture this had a similar feel to a flapjack with a solid soft chew with a little crunch from the crispy protein pieces inside of it. In terms of taste this had all the hallmarks of a flapjack, sweet and sticky. However I couldn’t taste a huge amount of peanut butter flavour within it though, it’s there but it wasn’t come through like I thought.
A solid effort for a flap jack with a decent 15g of protein as well. The taste lets it down though and it was sweet but didn’t have a good peanut flavour to it and for that I give it 7/10

Now that I’m back from my birthday holiday break away. It’s back to my normal routine and reality and I had loads of time to reflect on things.
It was great to be able to watch and see so many cliebt transform there bodies and smash there goals of doing something that most people say that they want to do but end up pulling out at some point. It’s tough physically and mentally and it does take a certain type of person to see things through to the end.
We are a raw breed of ppl and usually over analytical, ocd, like structure and routine and are very disciplined and motivated.
Been through this journey many a times I can tell working with clients who really have it mentally to see things through. Doing it for the right reasons too and knowing your why.
It’s not a popularity contest just to go through suffering just to be liked. Likes on social is a bit like being rich in monopoly.
Winning a show is yes the ultimate goal and of course is what everyone does it for. But just because you win doesn’t mean that it was a waste of time. It’s a learning experience and you can always do and be better.
Lauren absolutely smashed it and I couldn’t fault her on prep. She literally followed everything on my plan to a T and honestly looked fantastic. She had an amazing first experience on stage for her first time and is highly motivated to be back on stage again with that hunger and drive to aim for that trophy spot.
Congrats Lauren. Proud of what you have achieved and know that there is so much more to come from you. Great effort.
Lauren starting point was 55kg at 24% Body Fat and by show time she was 49kg but as I was away not really sure what her exact bodyfat was so I was pretty much just going by pictures and feedback. Starting kcal around 2100kcal and finishing around the 1200kcal for the last 2 weeks.
Onwards and upwards. She now has a holiday on 3 weeks so we are going to increase kcal slightly but keep her in condition for then.

"They don't understand us . We do this because it makes us feel good."
This lifestyle built me, built my strength, mentall will , it built my body and made me who I am. This is what I want to do and not because I want to catch eyes not because I want to impress only because this is where I feel home ! This is where I can be who the hell I want to be.
I choose to spend my night, days , month , years at my favourite bar. A bar different to yours , a bar that taught me to squat every weight that's thrown upon my shoulders. A bar that did not let me leave untill I felt relieved , untill I felt myself. -

About a year ago I suffered a back injury. Pain was minimal , never taken it seriously . Over time my training started to be affected by my back pain , I was depending on pain killers to help me get through my training. About 4 months ago I've been told that weightlifing is a chapter of my life that has to come to an end due to my back problems(a herniated disc to be exact). I never listened , I never wanted this chapter to end , it was the best thing that ever happened to me , it was the best choice I've made in my life. So I've decided to take time off and let my body heal. 2 months of pain, weird exercises in the morning and before I went sleep, corsets that I had to wear most of the time were all worth it ! I believed I could walk through this hell and I did .6 weeks ago I could barely lift 60kg for a squat or deadlift . I started a pure powerlifting training and for the first few weeks I felt like maybe I should give up , maybe it's not for me.I would feel like I wanna cry after every lift. Yet here I am now , with my 85kg squat , probably the proudest I ve ever been of myself. Now painkillers are off my bag and I never ever want to see them again, my self confidence is somewhere above this entire universe and this is only because I kept going and I believed in myself. -
I still remember @sim1911 saying a bit of time ago when I got my 100kg squat "Believe you can and you'll make it". These words stuck to my brain throughout every workout and helped me progress. If I managed to do it , so can you!
