For the past 5 years I’ve been a happy ‘watcher’ and a supporter of my partners fitness, health and MMA journey, something I always admired about him, his dedication and skill to do some things I never thought I’d even be able to attempt.
I would see the girls at the gym train and never in my life thought I’d be able to keep up with any of them, let alone finish a class 😂 they looked so strong and fit!
I tried BJJ for the first time last year and absolutely loved it then quickly, after only a few classes, got pregnant with Sage so decided to stop.
Fast forward to a couple months ago I decided I wanted to do something for myself, not just for my physical health, but for my mental health and to show my girls , my kids , that their mummy is strong too and they can do anything they want to do!
So I started doing small changes and steps.. eating better and consciously, walking, garage exercises and finally after I gathered the confidence stepped back onto the mats.
Super daunting to feel like the least fit
person there but everyone is SO welcoming and encouraging.
I have my little support crew who are always willing to stop and teach which I’m so grateful for 🙏🏽
for creating a genuine, supportive and open space for people like me to train and not feel like a dickhead 😂
I feel good , strong and proud for finally doing something for me.
If anyone has been feeling like they want to try something new and step outside their comfort zone I would 💯 recommend it.
Don’t worry, my page isn’t going to go all #fitspo #fitmom
😂 but just wanted to post incase anyone else was feeling like they couldn’t ever do something like this! If I can, you can too ❤️ Thanks @tabalexis21
