Just Keep Trying.


Achieving a goal is a wildly exhilarating thing. If you’re flirting with the idea of giving up, you could be throwing away something wonderfulyour best future.
There’s going to be anxiety about uncertainty and fear about failing, but push yourself to keep going. After all, you’ll never know how close you are to succeeding if you quit now.
Survival can be summed up in three wordsnever give up. That’s the heart of it really. Just keep trying.

And then it happens...


And then it happens…
One day you wake up and you’re in this place.
You’re in this place where everything feels right.
Your heart is calm.
Your soul is lit.
Your thoughts are positive.
Your vision is clear.
You’re at peace, at peace with where you’ve been, at peace with what you’ve been through and at peace with where you’re headed.

What is a goddess?


A woman who is in the process of learning to know, accept and love herself on all levels, Mind body & Spirit.
A woman who, because she focuses on personal growth and self awareness, experiences a life, increasingly filled with peace, love, joy, passion and fun.
A woman that understand that she has unlimited capacity to make her life anything she wants.
A woman who is inspired to give to those around her because of her sense of gratitude and abundance.
That, is a goddess.

My Top 3 Insta Inspo Accounts


From fitness bunnies, to fitness dudes to fitness bunnies… I follow a fair amount of people on Instagram, I like to connect with people of like minded interests, help people if I can, take inspo from them and I try to reply to as many DM’s assss I possibly can. I have good days and bad days on that last bit. For a social media person… I have days where I am not sociable at all. So sue me, can’t be perfect 365/7 – though I try my damndest haha!

I love all of my followers, and the people I follow however, there is 3 accounts… that I follow more closely – ok ok I stalk them every day. I’ll give you their IG handles, and what I personally take from their page and who knows, maybe it will introduce you to someone new that can give you a new sprig of inspiration…. In case I’m not inspiring enough.. which I totally am… but just in case… heh…

She’s featured in most posts I’ve done regarding my inspiration sources and its because she was my main number one inspo when I got into fitness. I’ve followed her story like the biggest fan girl for like 4 years, so top of the chain has to be Jen Heward @hunnybunsfit  - from fitness, to personal mental health missions, she has been a great guru in my life. Most recently she’s been going through a stage in her life where she basically had to rebuild herself after her long-term relationship came to an end. Jen’s journey to rediscovering herself on her own has been hugely inspiring. She’s also completely bonkers. To which I can relate!



Next up, when I started getting more and more into fitness and using my Instagram to platform my journey I stumbled across a local lass who at the time was competing, so she was ab goals. I watched Imogen Parfitt @Parfittness page to see her workouts and as the years have passed, she’s moved more away from the aesthetical side of fitness and more into the mental impacts. As someone who has recovered from anorexia she knows the importance of living a healthy life and not being obsessed with being on the stage. Whilst fitness is one of her passions, Imogen hasn't become a part of a particular clique in the fitness world ie Bodybuilder, crossfit. Which I LOVE. She’s just herself, confident and savvy in her own body without feeling the need to look stage ready 12 months of the year. Plus she is hilarious and her dog Nev is amazeballs.



And then there’s Katie… she’s brash in the best way, savvy, independent, and although she protects it fiercely, she has the most incredible heart. Katie's hustle and dedication to her personal goals on top of her day job as a consultant gives her queen status on a whole other level. @Myhitlife is the realist of the real guys, she will go on live cam at 4.30am with last nights bed hair and tell you what’s up. She uses no filters, frames or any of that jazz, her impact on me and on the world is raw and fresher than anything I’ve come across on social media and that’s what makes following her journey so different from everyone else’s.


So there you have it those are my top 3 follows. All hugely successful, inspiring women that I think you could learn a thing or two from. Hell I know I have!

Goals and Intentions - June 2018


Whaddup June! Great to be back with ya!

This month is a tiny bit quieter, so I’m gonna embrace that and use the time to get back to being my healthiest, most vibrant self.

Goal one: Gut health – now I’m not going to say I wont have any take outs and I wont go out to eat with the girls this month, because, well I know me. But I am going to be focusing on being more mindful on what I eat, eating for energy and gut health. My main concern is what’s going on inside rather than what I look like on the outside. I’ve noticed that my mental health, is just as affected as my abs after a few weeks of continuously filling my body with foods that bare no nutritional value. I’m more likely to mentally and physically crash.

Training, I’d like to try and retrain myself back into getting up early and smashing through a 60-90 minute gym session at least 5 days a week, day 6 is a bonus day and day 7 is for rest.

Final goal for this month is to stay in my own lane… keep my brain on my business and my health and not be too involved with people that add stress and doubt to my day. If I stay in my light, stay focused on my goals and keep my head down – June should pan out to be a great month for me.
