This sounds a lot like a Havana Brown song to me. Maybe it’s just me…

I really love Instagram. It’s such a great source of inspiration and creativity and I can definitely say I use it a lot more than Facebook, particularly as a tool to motivate me to get out of bed in the morning when I feel like just sleeping in instead of working out. While we all know the big companies like Women’s Health and Lorna Jane have some great fitness inspiration, below are just a few of my favourite Instagram accounts featuring real life and (mostly) unretouched fitspo…
@mshelllll – Michelle Davis
I love people with a great sense of humour and a simple desire to be badass. Michelle is definitely one of those people. Her dedication and attitude have made her one of the better known faces around Instagram and the fitness world.

Georgina is an Optimum Nutrition sponsored athlete who posts loads of great workout videos and tips.
I actually think this might be one of my all time favourite gym/workout songs. Good beat, catchy tune and two artists I have been a fan of for quite some time= an awesome song that really motivates me to work a little bit harder.

This is more of a rant to myself, I guess.
Well, it has finally happened. After such a long time of pushing on, I think I can finally admit I’ve lost my motivation and nutrition/exercise mojo. I really wish I had some sort of excuse, and on some levels I do, but it can’t really beat the fact that I have just been lazy lately. I have really been struggling with anxiety and stress and I think it’s really affected most areas of my life, including my ability to push on and motivate myself.
So… Where to from here? Firstly, I guess I need to accept the damage I’ve done to my body lately. I definitely know I have gone backwards fat loss wise, and even though I am still improving strength wise, I have not been treating my body with the respect it deserves. Second, I am hereby allowing myself a day of rest. A day to myself where I can sit on my butt and relax and not feel bad about it. I feel like usually when I try this, I either feel so guilty I go and do something, or I end up making plans and rushing around just as much as I would on a normal weekday. Thirdly, I need some get some serious meal prep going. Good, tasty food that I won’t get sick of eating halfway through the week. That includes snacks too!
I really need to dig deep and remember why I started this journey in the first place. While I still find myself feeling like I am lagging on behind the pack of transformations, being lazy and going back to old habits isn’t going to help.
