🏆👑WE DID IT👑🏆. Love this pic from yesterday with my coach @liamfit4life who won the under 90kg bodybuilding class at UKBFF north west yesterday. This guy has supported me more than you could imagine over the last 6 months to achieve my first place in the masters body fitness north west UKBFF class yesterday. If you are looking for personal training, a diet plan, competition prep or all 3, then look no further...this guy is the best choice you could ever make. His dedication, passion and knowledge for bodybuilding is insane 💪⭐️. If he isn't #mondaymotivation then I don't know what is! THANK YOU Liam for supporting me all the way to achieve my dreams 👙🙏. Let the journey continue 👌. #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #teamwork
Between these two pictures are a few years of struggling. I managed to lose 23 kg but got too thin and sick and gained 20 kg again pretty soon. Now I finally found that way in the middle and hope to keep up with it to stay healthy. Meanwhile my mind and sight for the more Important things in life changed too so maybe it gonna work this time 💪😊
The healthy lifestyle, lifting weights.. It's not just something you do, it's something you are. ☆★
It doesn't have to be huge, but just think about it and try to do something that the future "you" would like. Whether that's getting up and smashing a workout, having a salad instead of macdonalds or just sending a thoughtful message to someone you love. Just try to do something good for yourself every day ❤️. . #dubaifitfam #ukfitfam #fitfamuk #dubaifitness #dubaifit #fitspo #fitgirl #fitspiration #fitnessaddict #fitnessjourney #sweatingforthewedding #fitnesslifestyle #fitlife #motivation #motivationalquotes #motivationmonday #mindfulness #thoughtful #appreciation #loveyourself #love #inlove #selflove #loveyourlife #girlgains #strengthfeed
😋🍫😋🍕😋🍟😋 Eating 1200 cals a day, training your arse off (literally.. poverty macros = pancake butt 🥞🍑🙊), bodyfat isn't shifting, glutes aren't growing and feeling like you're stuck in a rut? You're not the only one! So many girls are in exactly the same situation.. until they join #TeamACF 😜.. now aptly known for carb glute gains 🍑and toned tummies👌🏻 if you've been following a low carb/low cal diet for a while, the idea of increasing cals can be a total head f%€k!! 🙃 but your body and mind will thank you for it 🤗🍑🤗 Want to know more about eating alllll the food (+ 🍸😉) and getting leaner?.. get in touch 💌
What I've started to learn the last few months is you need to look after yourself, then you can look after others so much better! Just things like a 10 minute meditation, workout, nice food, Get your hair done, read a self help book, work on yourself, can make you feel so much more balanced. I had such a stressful few years that I forgot about myself, I looked after everyone but me. But now I'm putting me first, not in a selfish way, but in a if I love myself I have more love for you way ❤❤❤❤
Fuel for a day of clients & classes. Shout out to my self employed people ✌️ Happy bank holiday!
Changes don't happen over night 💪🏼 This is 3 years of lifting, gaining weight and growing! In that time I have run a half marathon in sub 1.45, cycled several 60+ mile charity rides, done a sprint triathlon, competed in powerlifting 3 times and grown to LOVE my body for what it can do ✨ Although biceps are pretty bad ass to imo 💁🏼 Moral if the post is don't compare your step 1 to some one else's step 10 👊🏻 Everyone starts somewhere and it's the journey that counts 💖
Good morning bank holiday Monday and 1st of May. Starting mine off with a double shot of coffee for that boost I need for my workday #girlgains #motivation #work #coffeetime #coffee #caffeinefix #cyclist #morningmotivation
Some people hate Sunday nights because that means Monday is approaching. Don't be that person. How beautiful is it that we can wake up and start new every Monday?...or even every day. Your mind is the one thing that will constantly get in your way. I always say this, but training your mind is JUST as important as training your body. Happiness and productivity are a choice, so let's get up, get at it, and kill it this week #fitfam 💪🏼✨ And thank you for 300! And 5k on my main account @itscolleenk this past weekend 💕🤗💕ya'll are pretty cool I guess.
A bit of #mondaymotivation to start the week on a high! I'm super bloated today after a weekend of alcohol consumption, so it's nice to look at old photos and feel better. Plan for the day is not to wallow, it's to eat fresh healthy food all day and do a workout, and drink lots of water and green tea. 👌🏻 #rwlfitties #healthyliving #resultswithlucy #resultswithcecilia #priorities #happiness #mentalhealth #fitness #girlgains #slimmingworld #exercise #fitfam #stressrelief #nutrition #endometriosis #eatwell #motivation #determination #bodymagic #rwl #wellbeing #summerbody #ditchthescales #C25k #bodyconfidence #classof2017 #RWLCO2017 #healthfoodie #selflove
Probably no different for me as I always have a Monday off but it's still a good feeling 💁🏼❤️
This morning shape after 8 days of no or very little exercise, and having very little control over my food e.i. Some days I've been fed like a veggie, somedays I've eaten lots, some days not enough- I just ate when I was hungry what ever I could basically 💁🏼 • • The damage... I've most likely lost weight (I don't weight myself), I feel smaller. I still managed to keep my butt, I still have a flat tummy, I'm still friken ALIVE 😱 how do I do it? I don't stress anymore! Having 1 day off will not immediately make you fat, having one week off won't either. But if you stress, emotional eat, or worse, eat because you feel guilty or bad about your body and lack of exercise, you're most likely going to hold onto fat and feel mega watery- I know, because I've done it! If you're off due to illness, injury, or just lack of motivation- don't stress! We're in this fitness thing for life remember!🙌🏻 #girlgains
You are in control of your life. Nobody else. 'The choices you make and how you choose to deal with life will determine your success and happiness. So what are you going to do today that will make you happier and more successful?' 🤔🤔Today I am going to.....
I found a top that is 100% my motto in life .. "HAPPINESS IS AN ATTITUDE" .. choose to be happy people 🙌😄 #mondaymotivation #monday #happiness #attitude #bankholiday
Last nights tea was so delicious 👀👅... kale, green beans, broccoli and butternut squash chunks with a cod fillet 🙋🏼

Don't trust the scale 🦄🌙 That's about 3 year difference in between pictures.  And yet.. 9 whole kg. Which is about 20 pounds. But have I changed that much? Have I gotten much bigger? The answer is no. But the small changes are all for the better. But as many already know my past with ED, I want to point something else out here. At 50KG, I was absolutely miserable. I starved myself, only to binge afterwards.  I was weak, and the only quality I had was to be able to run. Now fast forward 3 years, I'm weighing in at about 59KG, and am much healthier, stronger and most importantly.. Happier 🦄💓 Was it scary to gain all this weight? Of course! But in the end my body didn't change that much in size, because it's been mainly muscle gain. You can't see it in this picture, but I'm finally starting to have a little bit of calf, quads and booty, and even my arms and back are showing small progress over time.. So now I ask you.. Why trust the scale? Is it that worth it to starve yourself for a number? For a size? For me it's a big NO 🐾 It took me time to accept this, but a number is a worthless representation in most time. It doesn't represent your strength, nor your mental state 🦄🌙 I still have ups and downs where I feel fat and weak, where I regret the times I was skinny but as an overall I am much happier still ♡ PS : I know this picture doesn't show it perfectly, but from the side I am indeed bigger.  From 50 to 59KG I gained about 1 pants size and same for shirts ♡ ________________________________________________ #fit #fitness #fitspo #swissfitgirls #squatspo #bodypositivity #fitmotivation #fitinspiration #morningshape #girlgains #fitnessgoals #girlswholiftheavy #fitnessjourney #trainhard #transformation #positivemindset #morningabs #strongnotskinny #backattack #beforeandafter #gettinginshape #edrecovery #edfighter #gainingweightiscool #progression #progress #bootygainz #mentalwellness #mentalhealth

What does balance mean to you?⚖️ Balance is all about what works for you. A lot of people talk about having 80/20 balance, which is fine and that's what I try and live by, however, we have different lives, careers and commitments. You have to find a balance in life that works for you and your lifestyle. It isn't written in stone on how you should live and what balance is, you're not dictated by others, only yourself. 💎 ... ... ... #girlgainsessex #girlgains #balance #livequotes #balancedlifestyle
Hello May🌸 One of my favorite months. #birthmonth May you be wonderful! #nopunintended
He asked me to clean , so i did a few sets of finding my 2 RM hang squat clean @tiglon_ 😏💪🏼 #whoishe #iamaskingmyselfthisaswell #tiglon #tiglonseries #doyouevenhangsquatclean
Please, if you pass someone and like something, say it ! "Love those shoes!" or "Great hair!" or "Wow your eyes are beautiful" why? Because You never know how much those few words mean to someone, you never know what hell they may be going through; and when you put positivity out there into the universe YOU, yourself become a happier person. It's hard to be nice and be miserable yourself. It'll reflect from the outside in. I'm telling you random compliment giving will change your life an maybe someone else's, too. • • • • • • • • • • •
Leg day come at me 🍑 up and off to the gym super early as it's a full day of writing my dissertation 😅 and what better way to start the day than releasing some endorphins to get motivated and focused 💪🏼 #legday #squats #girlgains #iifym #gains4girls #fitfam
Like many others, I'm used to going at 10000000 mph ⚡️During the week I barely get an hour to myself in a day to do nothing - sometimes just 10 minutes before bed. There's no time to absorb or reflect the day. The significance of daily events passes you by. And I actually found it really hard to relax into this holiday. I was waking up at 6.30am and already planning all our activities. Twitchy when we had no plans. But today FINALLY I'm feeling OK with doing sweet FA 😎. And it's really making me realise that when I get back to London I want to be OK with doing nothing at times there too. Unplanning weekends, deconstructing plans, making life simpler. More time to Be. So here's to doing LESS ☕️☀️ #mondaymotivation #couchpotatolyfe
Ok ok ok #mindset for this week! Count down is intensely on and I am so damn pumped one min then the next I'm a scared little newbie. NEVERTHELESS I know what I want from my Comp, from my career, from my life.. so I'm going to MAKE IT HAPPEN see y'all on Sunday 🏆💪🏻💁🏼
Evenings like this don't come around too often 😍

Did anybody love drinking BCAA like I do? Recently has been taking @scivation bcaa during my workout and totally help with muscle soreness. And blue raspberry flavour is the bomb.com!
Flying into Monday like 🏃🏽‍♀️ Okay everybody, if you can't tell by now I'm sort of a dork and when you come up with bizarre photos like this you can't not share 😂 this weekend was one of those weekends where I had a million things planned and everything seemed to go array. But tomorrow's a new weeks, so let's do this!!! Let's get up tomorrow. Tell yourself in the mirror 'YOU GOT THIS' and go chase the dream! Get that workout in, hit those macros if that's your thang. And BE YOU 😘 . . . . . #bbg #bbguk #progresspic #fitnesstransformation #bbgprogress #sweatwithkayla #fitnessjourney #fitnessgoals #girlgains #girlswithmuscle #eatforabs #london #losangeles #strongnotskinny #bbg1 #screwthescale #bbgnewbie #bodygoals #fitfam #kaylaitsines #abs #fitchick #fitfriends #healthy #palmtrees #londonfitness #kaylasarmy #topbodychallenge #fitnessgoals
Raise your hand if you're having some feelings tonight because you just finished your program and you're gonna miss working out with @shauntfitness! 🙋😭 I'm not gonna pretend it was easy, and I wouldn't have even attempted it yet if my coach hadn't suggested it. I hate cardio and thought getting through this was going to be a nightmare, but it actually made me enjoy it consistently for the first time in life. I loved getting up in the mornings and seeing that people in my group had already done their workout and posted about it, which meant I literally woke up every day motivated and excited to do mine. I loved how Shaun T somehow fucking knows through the TV when I'm being obstinate and standing there shaking my head no at what he's asking me to do, so he drops some words of encouragement. "Just do the best you can." There's no shame in being a beginner, even if you only get through a few reps, even if you're an awkward moose, it's better than standing there saying you can't do it, and you will be better next week if you try this week. My team has our next two months planned with different challenges, but I already know I'm going to do a Shaun T program the following month - and we have 7 to choose from with our annual membership! If you join up now I can recommend a great beginner program (or help you get started where you're at) and we can do this together by July. I'm already excited. Are you?? #digdeeper #max30 #shaunT
🙀 Last night I said goodbye to my second home for the last year. Thank you so much to everyone I've met along the way for your kind words, support and banter. 👍🏼 Joining Warehouse was one of the first things I did when I moved to Dubai, and soon after I then launched myself into comp prep. I'd always been part of a commercial chain gym, so to then be surrounded by powerlifters and crossfitters was a tad intimidating, but eye opening and motivating. The community spirit here is second to none, and I've learnt so much from just watching everyone train and from other PT's at work.

LET'S TALK SALT Why do companies do us so wrong and make it so that SO many of the foods we eat are loaded with salt 😭 It's been up for debate but according to the American Dietary Association, you should not exceed 2,300mg of salt a day. Now, that make seem like a lot but it sneaks up SO FAST😖🙄But have no fear! I am going to provide an lower sodium option for each of the hidden attackers 👊 🔹Cottage cheese- swap for some Greek yogurt. Still has the amazing protein punch and rarely has more than 90mg per cup. 🔹Bread- swap for artisanal bread. Most bakeries do not add NEARLY the same amount that mass produced bread companies do. 🔹Instant oats- swap for whole grain rolled oats (obviously) and why have lab created flavor when you can have your own? 🔹Chicken- most companies inject their chicken with a salt solution which adds weights and sodium 😑Swap for some salmon that has only about 40mg per serving. 🔹Peanut butter- swap for unsalted almond butter not only is it better nutritionally but yummm 🔹Pre-made salads- it's not the veggies that make it salty but the toppings, instead make your own salad that's as unique as you😉 Bottom line, read labels, stay alert, and be you 😘 #hiddensalt #salt #themoreyouknow #sneakysalt
