Novel : About a month ago our Spin Trainer Jeremy asked us to do the 100KM spin challenge 😳Naturally I said no 🙅🏻♀️because I didn’t think I could something like this. Our class is full of athletes.
Being short it’s harder for me to ride and I’m usually the slowest in class. But the bro convinced us to take up the challenge 🙄
We’ve been training at 4am and given up sleep ins to get ready. Even though sometimes I don’t show up he never got disappointed (not to my face at least 😂) he’d always say “let’s try again tomorrow buddy”
With the most supportive Spin Family we both made it across the finish line 🏁
Their wins were your wins and when I wanted to give up during it, they just kept coming alongside encouraging you for every KM 😭
Thanks to the Sis @marionto for achieving this with me. For not getting angry when I called yesterday to say I’m pulling out 😂😂 for standing alongside me as I finished my last 20km. Love you heaps so glad we got to share this together.
Jeremy your heart to help others, your craziness of spinning wherever possible. Smiling back every time we death stared you’re the real McCoy so glad to call you family.
In pain but those following my insta story I eventually got my steak and cheese pie 😂
Confession!! Yesterday was the first time I’ve been to the gym for over a month! Should I feel bad, no! In the past I would have beat myself up about this and freaked out about how much weight I’d put on and the gains I’d lose. 🙄C’mon really!! Fact is my kids have had a tough month and really needed me around. The gym will always be there and Kg’s, muscle and fat can come and go. What’s the point in being fit and healthy if it’s at the cost of your family. Perspective and balance is so important in this game. Fitness isn’t mastered in any one workout it’s a lifelong journey of ups and down’s. Family comes first💕 #ruok#fitness#journey#family#fitlife#fitforlife

15 years ago today, i was diagnosed with PTSD. A severe traumatic side effect from the war in my country. My trauma affected my speech, which basically developed to “stuttering”. Doctors, family, and everyone i see didn’t even understand what cures it or what makes it better. Some thought i was possessed 🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️. I was like any other girl dreaming about growing old, having a job and travelling the world. Because iam a woman in Iraq, my circumstances were always against me, i was never able to express my feelings, or say what i want to say. Which made my trauma worst. When i grew older, my personality startedto form, i was a rebell, never took no for an answer, and always did what’s on my mind ( well, still) 😂😂😂 despite the fact that my own doctor said i will end up commiting suicide like many other people usually do. I wish he can see me now, where iam, what am i doing and the woman that i become . Words never put me down, bullies never put me down. I chose to believe in me and my power. And believe me people,no one is able to cure your PTSD but yourself. You choose your destiny and future. I cured myself and i feel so happy when someone with PTSD reach out to me for help with their situation. I went through this and belived in my power to beat the crap out of this, and believe you can too, whenever you or your loved ones have PTSD or stuttering . Reach out, you are not alone! We are all here to help as one family. Everything is possible ❤️💪🏻 #ptsd#ptsdsurvivor#stuttering#strong#motivation#inspiration#empowerment#iamhere#foryou#love#family#bond#losangeles#california
