Happy #humpday #fitfam! Here’s a #throwback from my very first show last Sunday. Did a 2 hour long session today with my team mate @elocin_x - our #legs were in so much pain we were literally on the floor halfway through our lower body hypertrophy session 🙈 major #glutes #quads and hamstring pump!!

#tbt to my #birthday last year, April 8th 2013 on the left, and yesterday after #bikini posing on the right. I weighed about 54kg then and 55/56kg now but am much leaner and have put on more muscle. So happy with my #transformation, #progress and journey 😊💪

Meals from the #lowcarb day of my carb cycle. #Breakfast is bottom right Tupperware: 5 fried (whole) eggs, spinach and avocado, and whey #protein with coconut yoghurt (coyo brand pictured), berries, chia seeds and almonds.

Meals 2 and 3 are bottom left Tupperware: salmon fillet, avocado and greens.


Meal 4: top left corner - homemade beef burgers from lean mince, red onion, red pepper. Had this with greens and #homemade kale chips, and more coyo after because I had fat macros left.

#latergram from earlier this week #training at @gymboxofficial with @elocin_x. Here are some row variations to grow your upper back 😊💪 I think a nice toned and v shaped back is super hot on a girl (and guys), and definitely makes you look strong and healthy. That v shape will make your waist look smaller too! Get rowing for that sexy back ❤️👍😍

#nofilter #transformation journey of my #legs - top row: end of feb to march 2014, bottom left: 3 weeks ago when I started with my coach, bottom middle: last week, bottom right: today. He has upped my calories and macros (2300 cals, 230/71/172 c/f/p) and I’m doing 5 weight sessions a week including one purely for Olympic lifting, no cardio. Definitely getting leaner but maintaining size! Can’t wait to see more definition 💪💪😁

#selfie because it’s #progress picture day! Coach upped my calories and macros (#reversedieting ftw😂💪), decreased my training to 4 days a week, and I’m lifting more and getting leaner and lighter than when I was cutting! I’m also on creatine so I thought there would be more water retention but I seem to be adjusting well. Upping my food even more tomorrow because I’m trying to put on lean mass, not drop 1.3kg.. But I guess this goes to show that sometimes if you’re not seeing progress you are probably under eating and over training and just need to mix things up. Lifting heavy again! Boom.

#glutes and #legs #progress - top left: summer 2008, top right: Jan 2014, bottom left: March 2014, bottom right: today. Slow progress (I only started lifting ‘properly’ last April) due to being inconsistent with my #diet but am happy to see results. Have had an awesome week of #training and eating and have dropped weight, mostly water but hopefully a bit of fat too! Remember, a balanced diet, enough rest, good form+ training and consistency are key to progress! I have my @gymboxofficial family to thank for guiding and motivating me in various ways 😊💪👍❤️

#cheatmeal - @boojabooja chocolate dairy free gluten free ice cream, almonds, coconut flakes, banana, blueberries and dark chocolate. Thanks to my friend Setura who brought it as part of dinner tonight for my delayed birthday celebration 😊

#flexfriday #selfie a few hours after my leg #workout - #nofilter here, just #natural #sun light and shitty quality photo taken on my phone. Am definitely seeing my #glutes #progress though! 💪😊

Smashed back today at @gymboxofficial with @cravetheburn12 - here’s a mid and #postworkout #lats spread shot. #gains baby #gains 💪😁
