✔️ MORNING WORKOUT ✔️
Leg day! What a glorious workout this #bbgstronger#leg has been 💪 I’m learning to appreciate this program more and more. I feel empowered and capable at the gym, and I’m doing this workout in the morning very gladly. 🤗
Working out in the morning isn’t easy, it wasn’t for sure easy at the beginning (I think I couldn’t have managed within the first 12 weeks). Now, when I’m deprived of my morning workout (like this morning 😑) I HATE IT 😩 the gym is empty and all machines are available at my convenience in the morning. I have all the weights I need and all the room I want. And at 8am I already have burnt 200kcal! I also feel more energized and less tired (which would be counter intuitive yet here we are). I can’t recommend it enough! 😄
Have team CPR/First Aid training today at work... May need it after that routine 💦💦💦 😱😱😱
Not sure the Better feeling.. crushing a Monday workout.. or finishing the 430am workout week strong knowing you stayed with it all week 💪
Happy Friday !
Happy #stillnothingtoflexfriday ! Sweaty after a spin session and trying to flex those legs... but tbh I’m knackered so it wasn’t my best effort 😂 .
I’m finding reverse dieting off Keto quite difficult. I’m eating 60g carbs per day which isn’t going to give me a massive glycogen boost, but it’s knocked me out of ketosis, so I’m not really producing those lovely energy giving ketones. I’m in limbo! I’m missing the keto energy 😩 I’ve also had a couple of crap nights sleep which is also playing its part. I am Goldilocks about pillows. There are about a million rejects in the cupboard as every one I buy is either too hard or too soft. Even if I find one that’s just right, it’s just right for about 3 weeks before it starts to be not right 😩 The memory foam one I bought yesterday is like bricks. I maybe need to go and pummel it for half an hour and soften it up 🥊😴

Do NOT live other people's lives!
I'm guilty of it, we are all guilty of it. We either choose to live our lives one way because of what society, our parents, friends, and/or family say is the correct way to live a 'life'. Whether it's by doing directly what they say to do, or by being scared of expressing ourselves fully due to other people's opinions on what we love to do.
I've struggled with this my entire life. I've struggled being a male who is sensitive, compassionate, and empathetic. In one word, mature. I then turned into someone I wasn't, someone who was completely incongruent with myself because I was so concerned about losing value. I was concerned that me being this gentle guy would in fact affect my entire reality... That people wouldn't value me or respect me (hence my very first tattoo 'respect'). The reality is, I was unhappy. I wasn't me. I had a terrible relationship with myself, and even further, I had even more terrible relationships with others because those that my 'alter ego' was connecting with are actually people I don't even enjoy being around. I was gaining 'respect' from people I didn't even desire it from.
Long story short... BE YOU. Express yourself. Love yourself. Be kind to yourself. Show the world your true beauty, because you are all your perfect self. No one will ever be a better you. Own who you are, and please, share who you are with me and the world so that those that are also struggling to let their own light shine will be inspired to do the same.
