Guess who’s back, back again, it’s the return of the Jen so tell your friends lollllll!!! Well hello there to you all.  Finally giving my blog some well deserved time! Yes it has been a while, over 2 months since I updated my blog, shame on me I know. But if you have been keeping up with me on my daily life through my snapchat @jenser01  you will know that it has been a very busy couple of months!

I know, no excuse I hear you all say , yes maybe I could have arranged my time better and blogged a little more but hey I am only human trying to juggle so much around. So here is a quick update as to what I have been up to!

Firstly I have completed my Gym Instructor course and I am officially a Gym Instructor! So first step on the ladder to building my career in the health and fitness industry.  I am so thrilled and lucky that I am putting what I learned into practice around in my local Community Centre where I have being working as a receptionist.  I am doing some work experience there, and last week I completed my first official gym programme.  Yes I was scared and worried, was feeling anxious before my client arrived but you gotta face your fears!! I’m delighted to report that it was a success, I got some really great feedback which boosted my confidence. Plus the manager has now offered me a chance to help out with the Bootcamp classes to gain more experience and wait for it I get paid!!! RESULT !!

Education wise, I am always learning and investing in myself. I am currently doing 2 online courses, a diploma in both Digital Marketing and Sports Nutrition.  Both these courses as you can imagine are time consuming but I know that it will all be worth it in the end! I have plans and goals for the near future so watch this space.

Aside from all of that let’s get back to the main one, my journey to the stage.  Over the last couple of months training has doubled, fasted cardio sessions, tough training sessions 6 days a week , a lot of sweat, time and aching from head to toe , but you gotta keep pushing through!  In these final weeks I have weight sessions along with cardio sessions twice a day 4 times a week plus 2 leg day session, so the body is getting a bashing to say the least! I practically live in the gym, but thankfully my sons understand and don’t mind looking after themselves at the moment!! But they do miss their mammy’s baking lol!! Just don’t have the time at the moment.   I also got to see my hard earned gains with my first public posing session!! Amazing what some false tan can do! Still have to keep practicing it’s actually harder than it looks but I am pleasantly surprised at how comfortable my posing shoes are, when you practically live in trainers you forget what it’s like to wear heels!! Then with 5 weeks to go to the show my coach left the job, so it was like oh what am I gonna do now, was so upset and on the verge of just quitting but no I soon gave myself a kick on the behind and got over that one.

I did get to have a little fun and break away from all the training when the lovely Denise from @pelodolls, check out her Instagram here,  invited me to the Salon in Newbridge for a Boho blowdry!! It was such a great day spending time away from the daily grind with Denise and all the fantastic staff there and of course who else was there none other than the fantastic Nicola a.k.a @thenakedblondie, check out her Instagram here .  Spending time with such positive, beautiful  and inspirational women was just fantastic. So thank you so much girls #girlbosses !!

Moving on,  with just under 3 weeks to go before I step up on that stage, I am mentally in the game and I am giving my training 110%.  The hardest part for me is the strict food plan but hey I love chicken, rice and broccoli!! For someone who loves food, having limited ingredients is tough but I do try to be imaginative with my eggs, rice, chicken and greens! Check out my recent Instagram posts here , or Facebook here to see what I create! Through sheer hard work, determination, sweat and tears I am seeing some great results and progress.  I have dropped a whopping 8% body fat in 8 weeks, got some more booty gains and my waist has dropped by 2 inches! All naturally no fat burners here!! That is something I am so proud of as I am a firm believer that you can get so much from just eating the right foods and training hard.

Anyway that’s a quick update, well done and a big thanks too if you have read this far!! I know bit of a long post but I have being missing in action here!! I promise to get back to regular posting and anything you guys would like me to address please don’t hesitate to contact me through any of my social media platforms .

Finally just a massive THANK YOU to you guys, I am overwhelmed with the daily support , it means so much to me and I am truly grateful.  You really don’t know how much it means to me, love you all and remember we are here to empower, inspire and motivate one another.

Keep sharing the love,

Jen xxx
