Happy Monday guys 👌🏼
Hope you’ve all had a chance to enjoy the gorgeous weather over the weekend, I certainly did. I made sure I was in the gym early and trained before 9 so the days were mine. I couldn’t imagine having to peel myself out of the garden to get to the gym in the afternoon. I’d have had zero motivation to do anything, the weather was too good to miss!
With this weather comes me just wanting to eat fresh salads and fruits which is perfect as I’m normally a hearty cottage pie or Roast kind of girl. Though cravings for Twister ice lollies and 99’s with Flakes when I hear the ice cream van have been a serious thing! I’m gutted the weathers changed, I could really have got used to it. It’s just made me excited for my holiday now, not long to go, just 7 and a half weeks 🙄.
Ive had some news… I made it onto the All England’s competition in Northampton at the end of May. I’d originally only made the reserve list so just presumed I wouldn’t be able to lift but they’ve had that many applications they’re putting on two platforms to accommodate which is fantastic! How amazing that so many people are wanting to lift!! It’s going to be a very busy day.
Obviously that has now put me in a little predicament about the Greater Manchester champs next weekend. I was gearing up for my weight cut but I don’t really want to do two within the space of four weeks of one another. I know the toll it takes on my body so I had to work out what I wanted more. I’ve been training so so hard and decided I’m in no way going to pull out of the NW competition. So much graft goes into putting these events on and it’s been a while since I’ve had chance to take part so I’m going to go and compete but I’m probably going to be guesting as I doubt I’ll be at weight. Im going to stay on track with my dieting and just lift without any stress on Sunday afternoon. I’m looking forward to having a relaxing run up to the competition.
Also this means I may not have to weight cut for the All England’s in May as my weight is already sitting lower than I normally would be so far ahead of a competition and I won’t have that ballooning phase after I weigh in. All in all this has worked out pretty well. I’m seeing Sunday as a practice run, getting me used to the platform again. Working out what works in the warm up area and getting a feel for that really fashionable Lycra singlet 😍!
A part of me does feel like I’ve let myself down though and Danny too but it’s just how things have worked out this time round and I’m not going to dwell on it. I lift because I enjoy it and I’m going to remind myself how much I love it on Sunday.
Fingers crossed I pull out good numbers, I’ll let you know how I get on in next weeks blog. I’ve also had a Mindful Chef delivery today which is exciting. I’ll be getting my cook on this week and featuring the recipes on my instagram and on next weeks blog too. They’re all meals I would never think to make so I’m looking forward to mixing things up a bit.
Thanks again for reading and for all your support.
Love J 💌
