Completed my FIRST workout in almost 14 months! ✅ Not going to lie... it was hard. But who said you don’t sweat with at-home workouts!? Swipe ➡️ to see the after. Finished off with recover ✅. Day 1 in the books. There is still time to join me! DM me for details!! #energize#recover#fitmom#mombod#todaybeginsanewjourney#healthylifestyle#notadiet#beachbodyperformance
Six months - MAY to today
Damn this has been one tough road for a tough cookie.
Many months of serious health issues (Left)Intensive care - (R) today ! This was a huge inconvenience but I vowed to keep my mind strong and I focused on what I love to get through.
For all the bad things I could say about my journey.. I don’t feel any , sure it would be great if it didn’t happen but from this I can truely say I found out exactly why I am here. I got tunnel vision for why I need to live when I thought I would die.
My doctors have been amazing!!! Currently I am on a care plan with my neurologist, GP, physiotherapist and last week have re- started @f45_training because I used to LIVE for this and we decided it will be a major part of my mental and physical recovery!
I still got up and dressed up like I felt a million bucks but I was probs half dead. I think for me personally I just have to keep trying even if I can’t give my all 😹
I learnt a lot about what I really enjoy and I promised myself, If I ever could again I would care more about things that make me feel good and spend more time doing those things just because I can... I had -
Brain injury :
1)Couldn’t speak correctly- all my words were backwards and wrong (some I didn’t even no anymore) ->Forced it, faked it and retrained my speech 👍 kinda louder now 😹
2) Couldn’t move my neck from side to side for months had no movement
-> Now I can turn fully to the right and almost left 🤜
3)Couldn’t move my right arm down from this position in ICU pic ... I make it look like a pose but it’s stuck. -> Now I can move my arm again 🙌
4) Couldn’t do daily tasks correctly for months. I would forget what fridge was for , oven etc ... forget steps on how to do things correctly ... was very frustrating!
5) Pain & Neuro issues though body & head stayed for so many months I ended up grinding my teeth so bad !!! I had to get Botox in my jaw to weaken the muscle on my jaw to stop this!
6)Liver -> From having 2-4 brain scans / MRI’s per week using harsh contrast dye and many medications my liver is damaged but working on this now!
7) slight facial palsy, vision & dental issues all caused by this! #YOLO
BODY NEUTRALITY WORKSHOP: Learn to Live Beyond Your Body
Body neutrality is one of the most significant tools I have developed throughout my recovery, and now, my coaching practice. I was completely preoccupied with my appearance for as long as I can remember and my self esteem hinged entirely on my weight and looks. Unlearning that pattern of behaviour, thinking and self talk was one of the most liberating moments in my recovery.
The core concept of body neutrality is about accepting and respecting your body, even when you cannot love it. Body neutrality makes it possible to nourish and move and appreciate your body without the pressure of loving or hating it all the time. Without that pressure, I am now able to love my body and appreciate all it does for me.
I’ve heard from you over the years asking for the skills and tools to implement this concept into your own life and recovery. I’ve worked hard over the last few months to put together the best resources and skills for this online workshop and I’m proud to be able to share it with you now. One on one coaching is not possible for everyone and I want these recovery cornerstones to be as accessible as possible through webinars and workshops.
So, this Sunday 25 November at 8.00am AEDT (Saturday 24 November 2.00pm PST, 5.00pm EDT, 10.00pm BST) we’re going to be talking all things body neutrality and how to implement it into your own life. There will be a 1 hour presentation, 30 minute Q&A followed by 3 DAYS access to a private forum with new videos and skills every day. I’ll be there answering all your questions, talking you through the activities and providing guidance wherever you need it. You’ll also be provided with a comprehensive work book and materials prior to the workshop to get you ready for what we’ll be chatting about.
Tickets are on sale right now (link in my bio) for AUD$80 (USD$56, GBP£44, EUR€49). There are only 20 spaces available, so get in quick!
So after my last fight it’s become very apparent I need to look after my physical body better, more mobility work, more physio, less balls to the wall and more clever training also more supplements that aid recovery!
Very lucky to have Cbd UK Online sponsoring me and supplying me with great supplements and plenty of information on them 👍👌 I won’t lose another fight because of my body being injured 🤕
RECOVER FASTER. FIGHT HARDER ✊

Hey everyone how are you doing? A lot of the times people tend to give out small hints of how they are feeling. And these hints can be anywhere from hinting to self harm, feeling depressed, feeling very anxious, feeling suicidal, and various other things. And usually this is the way they ask for help. It’s hard for someone to say directly “I’m self harming right now” to someone, so they drop little hints. And a lot of the times people tend to recognize what the hint is about be do not know how to address it so they don’t say anything. If your in the situation, don’t be afraid to ask “are you depressed, are you feeling suicidal ideation, etc”. It’s direct and you get to the point without walking around the elephant in the room. We don’t want people to be alone in these thoughts, and if you don’t know what to do after asking the question then that’s okay. A lot of the times people just want someone to listen to them. That being said, it’s not your job to be giving advice, but you can ask the question and you can listen. I’m certified in safeTALK so I can do a few more steps in my procedure, but what I recommend for people in the situation described who aren’t trained, just try to encourage the person to talk to a professional. Ask the question. Listen. And encourage professional help. That is the best thing to do, and you listening to someone can prevent something potentially bad happening and you could save a life. Keep strong and healthy; I believe in you all!!! ❤️❤️💫💫
🤗 Hey guys !
I understood something today.
I was doing so bad with my eating. I didn't ate until 4PM. I Know it's really bad. But. It made me understand that I need to challenge myself EVERYDAY. Try one fear food at least each day. Or else I fall into bad habits like not eating for 16+ straight like today ...
---- 🍪 Aternoon snack : Cucumbers + 6 gluten-free crackers. (4PM)
(Thank you dear friend of mine who gave me the crackers, you are really helping me even tho I avoid your help 👌)
---- 🍜 Dinner : Rice (!)+ kidney beans + peppers + onions + garlic + tofu + harissa all together + rice cake topped with cheese. (10PM)
(I swear I don't know how to use a knife, my tofu is either thick or either slim af ... 😣)
Oh boy I'm so proud of myself. I turned all those leftovers into something incredible !! Would have taken second if the rest of the pan wasn't going to be my lunch tomorrow 😅
And I'm managing rice better now!
---- 🌯 Desert 1 : Pancakes (!!!), one toped with honey (!), one with fat free yogurt and grapes and the last with a chocolate bar (!!) + a glass of low fat milk (!!). (11PM)
😒 It tasted so good but ... I cried all the way through and was a challenge to eat everything in less than 30min ... But I did it, yay. 🙃
---- 🍮 Desert 2 : One fat-free cherry yogurt + 5 chocolate covered fingers (!!!). (11PM)
😮 When I finished crying extreme hunger came and told me to eat that even tho it was hard for me... ans I did it.
But my stomach hurts now... so much ...
---- Also, I find it really hard to deal with weight gain, any tips ?
Love you, good night sweethearts 🌃
