Had overnight oats for the first time this morning! Totally recommend it if you're like me and need a quick, but healthy breakfast! Mine today had 1/2 cup of oats, 1 scoop of @womensbest chocolate protein powder, 1 tbsp of chia seeds, a cup of frozen fruit, and 1/2 cup of almond milk! So yummy and refreshing! And I'm full! can't wait to make them again and try a new kind!
I'm a big fan of multitasking. Have to do fasted cardio, don't have time to go to the gym, shower change? Me neither. I'll wake up 30 minutes early and walk an hour to work rather than the 30 minute bus ride.
When I travel on public transport I use that time to work or check in with friends and family.
When I do cardio at the gym I listen to audiobooks to enrich my knowledge- in fact I listen to audiobooks whenever I can and feed my brain every chance I get.
When I eat I watch telly and wind down.
When I worked full time and studied I use to study on my commute to and from work so that I could have time to train in the evening.
I do HIIT circuits in my room while my bath runs.
People like me have the same 24h you do! We aren't given extra hours in which we are able to meal prep and train. Every single minute of my day is planned out before the day starts including rest and refuel time. I still usually sleep 9h a night, I still see my friends and family, I still have fun every single day... while juggling three jobs, training twice daily and keeping on point with my diet.
I work well with structure and routine but this is learnt behaviour, naturally I'm incredible disorganised. It may not be the right lifestyle for everyone and that is completely fine but never let 'time' be the anchor holding you back from your goals in fitness or otherwise. It's what you make it.

Happy PUMP Day as my trainer calls it Looking back on a year ago, I was nowhere near as mentally and physically strong as I am today. Even though I personally don't always see the changes, I know that with each workout, each rep, each set - progress is being made. Don't focus on what you need to reach tomorrow - set your mind to the moment you are currently in and just breathe, the results will come in time. So proud of myself for sticking with this the past 3months and now incorporating more into my weekly routines. Your only competition is staring back at you from the mirror - be better than she was yesterday! #GracieBarra#CodePink#Fitness#FitChick#HealthyLifestyle#Gains#Strength#PCOS#PCOSFighter#DontLookBack
