The last couple of days

Post haircut! Samantha curled my hair but the next day it had gone completely straight! Usually curls last forever in my hair, very strange. I love the feeling after just having a haircut, the hair feels so fresh and new.

An empty gym just before my PT session, it’s weird coming in and not being surrounded by lots of people getting ready for class.

Back at Fly Fitness with Kate. Always have a great time in this gym.


Good morning babes! I was up nice and early today, couldn’t sleep. I haven’t really slept properly this week and it’s definitely taking it’s toll. Anyway, I don’t let it get in my way of my day and I’ve been quite busy, hence the silence here. I also needed some time to regain inspiration after my previous post about my mum. It’s always a tough subject to speak about but I’m so glad I shared it with you.

One of my New Years resolutions was to go to the hairdresser a bit more often to try and keep my hair a bit longer and cut off as much every time. So on Wednesday I went to my favourite salon Anderson’s and had my haircut by my amazing hairdresser Samantha. She is so good at what she does and just laughs at me now when I say I want as little as possible cut. I must probably be one of her easier clients, always getting the same haircut:-P

I’ve been training loads this week and it’s been a week of lots of PBs! I managed to do an entire workout on the 30 inch box after my high jump at the gym last Sunday with Kamila. The boxes at Stella’s (Gym G5) are wooden and immediately it feels a bit scarier even though it’s not quite as high. If you ever have fallen on a wooden box (which I have) you’ll know the pain. It is crazy how injured you can get on the edges. I’ve got a scar on my leg from it.

With Faye’s support I jumped and did the entire workout on that height. It felt so good but it was tiring to say the least! Afterwards Faye, Debra and I headed to Kali Collective for a Yoga Nidra class led by Kat. It was so amazing to go to that class before going home for the evening. I felt so zoned out and relaxed at the end. It took a while for my thoughts to stop spinning but eventually I could feel them going more and more quiet.

On Thursday Stella and I were doing some deadlifts as part of my PT session and somehow she got me doing 3 reps of 80kg conventional deadlifts. No idea where that came from! Usually at that weight I lift  in sumo (a much wider stance) and do like one rep but it did not feel as heavy so somehow I did three. It’s crazy how quickly your body gets stronger and much more you can do when someone is training with you.

Yesterday I was at Fly Functional Fitness with Kate for their half an hour lunch time HIIT session. You think that sounds alright because of how short it is but it’s the more intense to make up for it. I felt slightly nauseous at one point but kept on going. Lots of jump squats, sprints, push ups and burpees. David who coaches the class is so great and supportive. You can really tell he loves what he does and wants everyone’s technique to be spot on to get the most out of their training.

In the evening I headed to Stella’s where we were doing more deadlifts and practicing toes to bar. My toes to bar are slowly getting there! One day they’ll touch it. I love having stuff to work on and the day you achieve it is such a great day and you feel amazing. Like all the hard work has paid off. What are you guys working on right now?

Anyway, I need to get organised for something I’m doing later! I’ll let you know tomorrow but I can’t tell you right now 😛

Have a lovely Saturday everyone xxx
