Posted @withrepost • @fran_nicholls Over the past few weeks I’ve felt very self-conscious about going to my local gym, I’ve put a lot of weight on recently, eating more (because I feel pants...I wish I didn’t eat my feelings 😂😂) still training but not as regularly because I’ve either not wanted to get into a swimming costume or felt like my gym clothes have been too tight and I’ve just got myself into a viscous cycle of meh and I feel like I might get a bit judged for being a porker where I train 🤷♀️🐷👋🏻
Today I had the pleasure of training at my lovely friend’s new PT studio @hiddenstrengthgosforth 2 of the loveliest people who have created a great environment to train in. Absolutely brilliant trainers who put their clients at the heart of everything they have done. To them it doesn’t matter what you look like, how much you can lift, how pretty you are, what your bum looks like in your leggings, just great training, great people and a great studio!
1 min cardio blast
10-12 reps of a strength exercise (except the pull ups, they were just a disaster)
Thanks so much for having me today @joecouleypt@whatififlyfitness and @hiddenstrengthgosforth seeing you made my day xx

Im all about self-love this week- and I thought I would share the empowering moment I found self-love. ⠀
It was only almost three years ago that I truly understood the value of self-love. I had just arrived in the Cayman Islands after backpacking by myself for 8 months. Backpacking was something I had my heart set on for years, and finally having the guts to do it, I think partially contributed to the empowering recognition of my self-love. When I landed in the Cayman Islands, I was the happiest and healthiest I had ever been. I had so much confidence and joy that it radiated off me, and brought me so many wonderful people, including Neil, my now fiancé. ⠀
I was dirt poor, I hadn’t shopped for months, all I moved with was my 21kg backpack, and yet I was the happiest and most relaxed I had ever been. ⠀
For me, every time I did something that I thought I couldn’t do, and challenged myself I grew a little more. My road to self-discovery and self-love actually all started with a painting. I was searching everywhere for a large purple and black painting for my room and I couldn’t find one anywhere that appealed to me. I had not painted since I was in primary school and did not consider myself artistic in the slightest. But I decided that if I wanted one so much, I would have to make it myself, so I did. And I actually liked it. My painting was of a very sassy strong bald lady, wearing a black and purple gown and floppy hat. Art is for the beholder. I don’t think anyone else loved it, but that didn’t matter- I did. ⠀
I surprised myself with my own abilities and how much fun I had that I set challenge after challenge for myself, next thing I knew I had bought a house, renovated parts of the house, quit my job, bought one-way flights, backpacked, and moved across the world to the Cayman Islands.⠀
If you need a bit more self-love, consider setting a challenge for yourself and doing it, and consider how it makes you feel. Hopefully, it will work for you as it has for me. ⠀
