I’m very privileged to be living in a country where I have access to an education, clean water running out my taps, a roof over my head and complete freedom to pursue my goals. I own my car, I run my own business, and my health is top notch. So what the hell do I have to complain about????
Perspective is an amazing tool, and it’s very easy to lose sight of that when life becomes crazy and full of drama.
But you must bring yourself back down to Earth and ask yourself, “Is my situation REALLY that bad?” Does it warrant having a hissy-fit over or expressing negative energy? Can you change it? Can you fix it? Life is too bloody short to complain about trivial bullshit!!! What can you do to create a more positive outcome?
Here’s some things you can do, instead:
✅Take full responsibility for your predicament
✅Think twice before speaking
✅ See value in situation
✅ Seek out ideas and helpful solutions to the problem
✅ Ask for help and guidance
✅ Take proactive action to resolve your dilemma
When you feel a complaint coming on, take a moment to breathe and appreciate all the good things happening in your life that you do have control over. Always remember that there are worse situations happening in the world, so try to be grateful, thankful and humble despite the circumstances. Guaranteed you will be a much happier and more optimistic person!!!
@fitlato Boss Lady @janeylmorgan is only 4 weeks into her @fitlatomacrochallenge and her results are just FREAKING RIDICULOUS!!! 🙀 Despite being a young mum and crazy-busy business owner, Jane is applying incredible adherence to her program whilst eating gelato EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! 🍧 Actually, I’m pretty sure she’s eating gelato two or three times a day haha 😂 Just goes to show that you CAN have your daily treats and still achieve great fitness results 👏🏼 All the other Challengers are making tonnes of strength and shred gains, too - simply by following a flexible nutrition approach and lifting weights. AMAZING!!!! 💚 We still have another 3 weeks left in this Challenge, and I’m really excited to see how the guys go 👊🏼 Keep smashing it!!!
Me the day after a workout:
*wakes up* “Woah, my legs - I smashed that workout yesterday!” 👊🏼
*gets out of bed* “Aww shit, this is actually worse than I thought...” 🙀
*sits on toilet* “ARRRGH, mother have mercy on my soul!!!” 🔥
*still sitting on toilet* “Help, I think I’m stuck here! Today is gonna suck” 🚽
*gets ready for work* “Holy crap, I need to sit down to pull these leggings on!” 👖
*drops eye liner on the floor* “Fucking hell!!!!” *bends down to pick up, wailing in pain* 💥
*gets to work* “Of course I have to walk up a flight of stairs to get to the office...” 🤦🏼‍♀️
Sound familiar? 😂 Muscle soreness is totally normal the day after (or even 2 days after) an intense workout 🏋🏼‍♀️ But there are many things we can do during and immediately after a workout, and on a regular basis, to help minimise the effects of muscle soreness and tightness 👏🏼
TAG A MATE who is always complaining about DOMS!!! 🙈
Dreaming about last weekends’ Salted Caramel Popcorn Protein Pancakes with Salted Caramel @fitlato and @macr0mike Salted Caramel PB+ 🥞 I wish every morning could start like this!!! 😍 #PancakePorn What do you guys think about me sharing more recipes and giving cooking demonstrations via YouTube? COMMENT 🥞 if you would tune in!!!
Because failure means growth.
Failure means learning.
Failure means stamina.
Failure means passion.
Failure means commitment.
Failure means confidence.
GO AND FAIL!!!! It’s okay, I give you permission to. It’s the only way to SUCCEED!!!
#TransformationTuesday going out to my stunning Fitness client @donji_elliott 😍 I know you should never reveal a woman’s age, but when I’m in my late 40’s, I want to look like THIS!!! 💚 Donna has been such a huge inspiration throughout her prep, and so many people are in absolute awe of what this beautiful woman has accomplished 🏆 Ultimate #MumGoals right here!!! 🙌🏼 After a sensational debut season, Donna isn’t hanging up the stage heels just yet 👠 Look out 2019, Donna is comin’ for ya!!!
Six different philosophies to “dieting”, but they all have one thing in common:
But then again, you could also be following one of these philosophies and GAINING WEIGHT simply from eating in a caloric surplus.
The bottom line is that NO MATTER what your nutritional approach is... eat foods that you like, focus on long-term sustainability and consume everything in moderation ✅
If your goal is to change your composition, then eat the relevant amount of calories that your body needs based on that goal. Establish a sensible protein ratio, and then divide up your carbs and fats with the remaining calories to your liking. SIMPLE!!! 🙌🏼
There’s no need to restrict, eliminate, or demonise any food group in particular. Determine YOUR balance and adhere to it!!! 💜
Today I finally introduced @fitlato to my parents 🙌🏼 They’ve been listening to me brag about how delicious it is and seeing all my foodporn posts for months on end - and now they finally understand what all the hype is about!!! 💜 I served up some chocolate, salted caramel, pistachio and hazelnut Fitlato with slices of @run2food cookie pie and a fresh, crunchy sprinkling of my protein crumble (featuring @sabriashealthykitchen Clean Lean Choc) 😍 The glasses were scraped clean in a matter of seconds, so it’s fair to say it was a huge hit! 🍧 Eating healthier doesn’t have to be boring - you just have to put on your creativity hat and voila, a simple and tasty LOW CALORIE dessert without craploads of sugar 👏🏼 You can order this exact dessert from @ciaogelato_nundah and also grab a few tubs of @fitlato while you’re there! ✅
This world could use a little more kindness.
It’s easy to get caught up in the dramas in our life or allow stressful situations shift our mindset into a place of negativity. We often don’t realise ourselves how our internal pain is projected externally - I’m totally guilty of displaying negative body language, using negative speech and blaming others for my personal circumstances!
But I think if we can show a little more bravery in supporting those around us and show genuine kindness to our family, friends and even a total stranger, it will not only make that other person feel amazing, but you, too, will also feel a little warm and fuzzy on the inside knowing that you perhaps made someone’s day! Even if you’re feeling down, find the strength to lift someone up and guaranteed you’ll be uplifted in the process!!!
Love breeds more love - try it, today!
Happy Flippin’ Friday!!! 💃🏼 Flip your hair in the air like you just don’t care 🙌🏼

C. Chin-ups 4xAMRAP
