Wasn’t gonna do this again this year and I’m not one for being emotional but...
Today marks 2 years since I broke my back so I’m feeling pretty ‘emotional’ (for me 😂🖤).
Two years ago I was lying in A&E on a spinal board. Not knowing what my future was going to be. If I’d be able to walk properly again. If I’d done any spinal cord damage. If I’d need an operation. At 23 hearing the words ‘you’ve broke 5 vertebrae in your back’ was the scariest thing that’s ever happened to me.
Literally lay there thinking ‘no I can’t have. I’m too young. I can’t have a broken back. I haven’t really lived yet’
It was the worst thing to ever happen to me and that whole time was the hardest thing I’ve ever been through. Physically and mentally I was a mess. Going from being so active to barely being able to walk, being in excruciating pain daily and not being able to do things for myself fucked with me mentally more than I can even explain. There were times when I hated my life and thought things would never get better.
Two years later. I’ve done more things in the last two years than I did the whole 23 before it. I took myself to the other side of the world for 2 months, visited some amazing countries, swam with sea turtles, scuba dived the Great Barrier Reef, jumped out of a plane, become an Auntie to the most amazing little boy ever, qualified as a Personal Trainer, completely changed my career path, started my own business, I’m physically in the best shape I’ve ever been in and I have SO much more to come.
I can’t explain how amazing it feels to know that two years ago I thought my life was over and that I’d never be the same again. And two years later I’ve ticked off numerous things from my bucket list and I’m doing a job I absolutely LOVE.
Things could have been completely different for me and not a day goes by where I’m not thankful I can still walk. But. I never really give myself any credit and yano what. I’m pretty fucking proud of myself 💁🏻♀️💪🏼 #throwback#notthursday#fitness#personaltrainer#motivation#proud#beforeandafter#transformation#personaltraining#gym#gymlife#gymmotivation#smashinggoals#gymshark#booty#bootybuilding#fitnessmotivation
Ive never done a post like this 😬😩 I can take all the selfies in the world but shit this is nerve wracking!!!
For the past 8wks as you have all seen I have pushed myself to get back into exercise and found my love for it once again, along with that i have changed those naughty eating habits I had found!
I am stoked with the results from this and it has only inspired me to keep on going, 7kgs down and feeling so bloody good for it!! #nowtomaintainit#newyearnewme#smashinggoals#feelingfab#nofaddiets#justeatingwell#HIITtraining#moveitmuma
Electrolytes. Even tho I’ve heard @kellie_keto harp on about them I really didn’t take it seriously. Until now. I’ve been knocked out this wknd some weird ass cold/virus thingy... dizzy, lethargic, shaky, achy - the whole deal. And it only just dawned on me that my cold symptoms are probably exaggerated due to my very low carb diet... ie Keto- Flu. I didn’t really expect it as I’m at least 6 weeks in so thought I’d avoided it. Obviously not. So I just whipped up 1/4 tsp Himalayan salt, juice of 1/2 lemon with 800ml of water x 2. Still feel shit but I do think that it has had an immediate impact. I’ll be drinking this on the daily 👌 #drinktheelectrolytes#electrolytes#ketoflu#keto#ontrack#didntcrackeventhoimsick#damn
At the BBBR run today they had a professional photo booth set up taking your photo and printing them out for you on the spot. They also emailed you a copy and added them to their facebook page. Wouldn't it be awesome if that happened at every event!! This photo shows what a hot sweaty mess I was! Red faced, sweat everywhere and knackered. #BBBR10km#10kmrun#imarunner#smashinggoals
