There was a time when I was never really into fashion because of my size & so I felt restricted as to what I could wear based on the pressure of social media & the fashion industry. The dress that I'm wearing I would have never in a million years purchased because I thought I was too fat to be wearing it. You would never see me in shorts, tight fitted dresses or skirts because I simply didn't think I looked nice or that it flattered me.
As I started getting in to the gym I tried my first tight fitted dress & literally fell in love with how I looked & how good it felt to be wearing it. As my body confidence increased I started buying more & more dresses/skirts. I am so proud to have come this far, to be able to wear whatever I want and feel confident. Fashion can really affect how you feel, you just have to find your style, what you find flattering on you and what makes you feel confident. @boohoo#ALLGIRLS
"Kind people are my kind of people." Homegirl here has a lil Saturday Story Time. Yesterday I took my 4 year old to get a haircut. He hates them, so before going we made a plan: haircut while he sits on mommy's lap, no sticky stuff (gel) in it, Sees Candy after for a lollipop. BOOM. We get there, all ready to go and the Wicked Witch of the West stylist says "NO! He sits by himself! I not cut hair like." Ugh. I'd prefer not to make a scene so I ask my little guy if he's ok with me standing next to him. Of course not. "Well I told him he could sit on my lap today so we'll just do that for today, please." "NO! He a big boy! By himself!" Little one starts crying. Sobbing 😭 oh hells no, lady. You did NOT just make my baby cry. Kids, hold my coffee cause Mama Bear is comin out the cave. First of all lady, I am the parent here and I make the decisions. It's called picking your battles. It's NOT a big deal to have him sit with me. Not like he's gonna be doing that when he's 18! And second, preeeetty sure this isn't Rodeo Drive where you can afford to be some snotty stylist, sooo "I would like him to sit with me so is there someone else who can cut his hair?" She went into the back to get a coworker and while we were sitting in the chair waiting, a young woman who had came in right after us assisting a special needs man came up to us and said "kind words only, little dude. You're not a baby. You got this." And gave him a lil fist bump. I dieeeee. Like, are you my Soul Sister!? Almost started sobbing myself 😭 I thanked her. What I really can thank her for is showing my children what a difference kind people vs unkind people can make. In their little lives they will experience both. Mama Bear won't always be around to save them. But I hope I've taught them to know that in a world where you can be anything, just be KIND. I think there's a lesson here for all of us. Be kind, people. That is all ✌️
❌STRUGGLING WITH MOTIVATION ❌
Are you struggling to motivate yourself? If you have been following me any amount of time you'll know that after my holidays I tend to have a moment of 'why am I doing this?' And really have to drag my lazy arse to the gym, I feel since all my holidays are over for the year I don't have anything to aim for... However I am WRONG! I remind myself that I don't just get in shape to look good in a bikini, or for people to think I look good.... No I do it for me I do it because I want to live the fittest healthiest life I possibly can, life... I want to be fit for it! 💪🏼
So when I'm struggling to motivate myself I may munch 2 packets of rowntrees fruit pastels BUT... I look back at how far I've come and remind myself how unhappy I was at 'that girl' remind myself of all the hard work I put into changing my body around!
But all the same, you can't start this journey without your 'WHY?' We all have our own why for me it was that I saw a picture of myself and literally it repulsed me I couldn't believe how I had let myself get... I felt ashamed (something you should never feel about yourself) 😒
I just hope that by this post even if I help just 1 person not to give up or help just 1 person start their own journey... I just want to let you know you CAN! ❤️ #ShredzWithSophie#transformation .

This morning I planned to. . .
Lay in bed and snuggle with my husband and son. . .
And that's exactly what I did.
Recovery is just as important as exercising and healthy eating. Plan to rest and rejuvenate just as you plan to workout.
