The joys of woman hood hit me over the weeknd and literally all I wanted was chocolate 🙈😂 I was doing very well until I discovered the jar of Nutella in work!For a full 12 hour shift, I went in and out of that fridge with a spoon 🙈😂😂. Then I raided the sweets press and if that wasn’t enough I polished off Miss Cahill’s chocolate cake 🙈😂. It was comfort eating at its best!
But I was not satisfied no matter how much I ate I wanted more! Came home from work Sunday night disgusted with myself had a nice pudgy belly,grumpy as …!
But Monday morning rolled around,I thew all the boyfriends chocolate in the bin …sorry Reece 🙈😂!But hey no point in lying to myself, I have absolutely no will power when the train comes to town 🙈😂.Did a Clean shop,hit the gym and chilled out and had some me time.
Moral of the story we all fall off the band wagon,we all feel like shit and crave junk food,just as much as the next person.
But what is important is to nip it in the bud don’t let a bad day turn into a bad week.
Hey ! So my second blog ,yup still doesn’t get easier.
I used to live for the weekends,wishing my life away until Saturday night rolled around.I was never stuck for people to socialise with and was always dolled up to the nines…however underneath it all I had such low self esteem….
I was the type of girl that used to hate eating In front of other people,and God forbid I was to go out with a fella for food I’d starve! “No Im not hungry thanks”Starving, salivating at the mouth looking at his food.ha Going on a night out I couldn’t possibly walk into a bar alone ,you’d send the text “I’m outside”so one of girls come out and escort u in!
With regards socialising, I’d have to have a few drinks before I head out for the Dutch courage,and no way in hell would I go near the, dance floor until I taught I was Beyoncé!
I was an emotional wreck and every little thing got to me,I over thought everything!!!
All of this sounds so sad but that was the reality of it! I was Not a strong confident woman,but fitness changed all that.I started getting compliments off women so then I didn’t care what males taught.I started to feel good about myself so I didn’t care what other people taught.
I learnt to go out and not drink and 9 times out of 10 I’m the one pulling the girls out on the dance floor.I now choose when I want to drink and not because everyone else is.
But most of all I’ve learnt to be selfish!!!I have stopped trying to please everyone.It’s ok to do NOTHING! Life can get so busy and sometimes you just need to switch off!I put myself 1st,I have stopped being paranoid and when those insecurities pop into my head I tell myself nobody gives a shit Marie! Lol
Because that’s the reality of it is nobody cares,there will always be people that try and drag you down,but the rest do they really care ???We are all just trying to get by! So Join that gym,go for your run,wear what you want and forget everyone else.Because in the end of the day we only get one life, so live it the way you want to…not the way you think u ought to.
My first Blog ahhhh very daunting to say the least. Right here goes I am currently working with Adults with Intellectual Disabilities.After 10 years working in this Sector I’ve decided to take a massive leap change careers and go back to college and train as a personal trainer!
I wasn’t always a sporty girl,as a child I was the sub they would put on the pitch for the last 5mins for a run around or if they were badly stuck I’d be stuck up corner forward lol! In school well my god,I’d say I had period cramps every week to get out of PE😂
It wasn’t until 4 years ago I fell in love with fitness,it wasn’t because of the way I looked after training but the feeling it gave me ! I had an extremely stressful job and if the truth be known I was quite lost in myself ,being adopted I struggled with my self image.I didn’t speak until I was 4 ,with a lot of speach and language therapy over the years.I would have struggled in school,constantly having to work harder than everyone else I got grinds in maths from the age of 6 right up to my leaving cert.
However I am blessed to have found such an amazing family and my mum in particular my best friend pushed me constantly to become the best version of me .I went to college to study social care and then went on to study Montessori teaching .
In 2012 myself and a friend decided to join a gym and that was the start of it .I would come off night duty and go to the gym…sounds crazy but the release I got from a workout was unreal .I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders the min I entered the gym and my mood changed instantly …yup those wonderful endorphins.I was hooked the feeling exercise gives me is insane.
It hasn’t been always been smooth sailing , But that’s life I guess ,we have our ups and downs and many a night I cried myself to sleep but it has been my fitness that has made me the strong confident woman I am today . Corny as it sounds but “the stronger I got ….the stronger I got “.
