Śniadanie najważniejszy posiłek dnia. U mnie wpadły placuszki z jabłuszkiem w srodku. Troszkę popruszylam kakao i ksylitolem 😋 przepis wzięłam od @gethealthywithjools przepyszna kopalnia takich przysmaków.
Po takim posiłku jestem w stanie śmigać na rowerku 40 min (jeszcze zostało.). Pamiętajcie o kodzie na ciuszki od @bejuststrong (kod w bio)
In the past I found myself asking, “What is life like without having an obsession with food?” What is it like to walk into a café or restaurant and choose something straight from the menu without a care in the world? What is it like to say yes to social situations knowing that food will be involved? What is it like to simply eat something, purely because I felt like it? I had lived in this vicious cycle for that many years, that I genuinely didn’t know what it was like to feel alive and free from this obsession.
I have just arrived home from spending time with my family where we went to the movies.
Last night I went to the movies with my family and was asked if I wanted a choc-top, one of the many things that I had eliminated from my diet. “Yes please, salted caramel” I said with a huge grin across my face. I then sat there during the ads/previews before the movie started and thought to myself, but how? How does someone go from having an eating disorder for 8-years and being completely and utterly consumed with food, to now saying yes to food that would once give me anxiety simply thinking about?
I began making small steps every single day. I made the decision to start seeing a psychologist, I started opening up to those closest to me, I started reading, journaling and reflecting on what was going on in my head, and I put myself in some incredibly uncomfortable situations. Was getting to where I am today easy? Hell no. There were several times where I wanted to throw in the towel, however in those moments, I was left with two choices. I could go back to the life I already knew... OR… I could discover the possibility of something new.
If I had stopped when things got tough, I wouldn't have lived to experience how life could be without an eating disorder and how amazing it is to feel alive. In just under a month’s time, @barbellbabesbrigade will be helping a group of women tackle some of their own negative cycles head on in our first Just Strong Training Camp. If you are ready to take action and your sick of living an unhappy life, this could be for you 💪🖤
Never underestimate you!
Challenge 3 for this year is now completed, getting into 169th place last night on team @davinamccall for @sportrelief .
In the last 7 days I took 172,157 steps !!! This week has been -
7 days of step counting,
6 days of going over 22,000 steps a day.
5 sore toes on each foot.
4 the number of times I have cursed in my head and wanted to quit all activity and make a den with chocolate this week.
3 gym sessions, 3 times on the treadmill, 3 new classes,
2 worn down trainers,
1 hip bruise, 1 sweaty AF look, 1 fitness tracker, but most importantly..... 1 sport relief week challenge completed. 1 week where I was sore, but from being active, not just being hypermobile. 1 week where I've lost count of the new people I've talked to, the times I have explained joint hypermobility and where jelly ninja has become a real description of how I feel!
Challenge 2 update and a pay it forward coming soon... But for now.... Have a great weekend everyone! :D

This morning I woke up not feeling the greatest. My stomach was hurting so bad. I got up anyways and started to move around. The pain seemed to have gotten worse. Yet I still kept moving. I ate a banana and drank some pre-workout. 10 mins later the pain started to go away. I drove to the gym and started my workout. 💪🏻
It was leg day and I was able to push more weight than last week. 💪🏻
I even PR’ed by 5#’s on my deadlift. #215 . 💪🏻
So I’m glad I decided to push myself. Otherwise I wouldn’t have had the workout that I did. I wouldn’t have PR’ed and I probably would have felt like shit the rest of the day. 💪🏻
Point of the story: Get up and get it done. Learn to listen to your body while still learning it’s okay to push it. 99% of the time, it’s your mind saying you can’t do something and not your body!! 💪🏻
P.S. If I would have been vomiting or the pain didn’t subside I would have not gone.
Have a great Saturday. 💙 Louden
😡And so it happened... in a disgusted tone I heard "if you keep it up you'll be lifting like a man" to which I said "if you lifted heavier, you could too!" 💪🏻🏋🏻♀️ Ladies...if you choose to strength train, you will not look like a man. You will not get bulky. Your body will not transform over night (if anyone's does please tell me your secret). But you will tighten your core. You will have more endurance in cardio exercise. You will accentuate your already existing curves. You will be strong. And you WILL be a badass. I wish I could tell you what that guy's face looked like but as soon as I told him to lift heavier, I walked away and didn't look back 💁🏻
