Wow what a week! And its only Thursday 😂 Been such a productive and fun week, my training and eating has been brilliant 🙌🏽 Managed to go out twice and not end up hungover 🙏🏽 (which is a real win for me because I HATE being hungover the next day because its a whole day wasted!) .
I guess I wanna talk a little bit about going out/drinking at uni💁🏼♀️ I’ve found that this year I really haven’t really done much of either because I was on placement from January through to May and then had such a busy summer that didn’t involve mad nights out! Coming back to uni I’ve realised that I love going out and socialising and having a good old boogie💃🏼 (who doesn’t amirite?😉) But without all the heavy drinking 🍺🍻🥂🍹Don’t get me wrong I do love a pink gin and lemonade and am definitely partial to a good glass of wine❤️ I think it’s important to still have what you enjoy because its all part of finding the right balance!☺️ .
SO just because you’re at uni surrounded by a lot of people drinking away their student loan...does NOT mean you have to as well🙅🏼♀️ I like to have one or two drinks and just enjoy the night, which doesn’t have to be fuelled by alcohol! So don’t be scared to do what you want to do and just have a fab time💖💖💖
Here for a good time, not a long time🥳
Good one today.
5 exercise Tabata- 20 seconds of work per exercise performed as a circuit with 1 minute rest between completed sets.
All about balance ✨💞
Hey guys. Here’s a little message that I hope helps at least 1 person because I know it’s helped me to think this way💕
Of course it’s important to be productive, set goals and do your very best to accomplish them! While being organized is a great skill to have and can relieve so much stress, it is equally important to look at the big picture and to be kind to yourself. Try not to get down on yourself if you do not crush every single task you set out for yourself everyday. It’s simply not realistic to think that way and it’s going to cause even more stress and unhappiness. Try to take it one step at a time and trust that you are doing your best 😊. Often times it seems that the people online are doing it all because everyone likes to share their highlights of their life (guilty of it!). But truth is, no one has it all down and everyone is also just doing the best they can. .
All I’m saying is that it is equally as important to work hard as well as trusting yourself and your individual process. I believe that by leaning in towards your interests/goals a little bit everyday you will get to where you are supposed to be. So enjoy life, do your best & remember, it’s all about having a balance❤️

I've still got a number of Shamanic Energy Healing sessions to do as part of my training with @copal_daselva so this is just an extended invitation to anyone who would like to take advantage of this opportunity whilst it's still free in terms of money. I only ask your feedback in exchange.
What is Shamanic Energy Healing?
Shamanic Energy Healings bares similarities to Reiki in the sense that the intention is to introduce the flow of universal energy in place of that which may be stagnant or disharmonious and causing dis-ease within our being in whatever way that manifests, be it emotional, spiritual or physical.
The difference ultimately boils down to tradition and origins of each practise. Shamanic Energy Healing drawing inspiration from numerous cultures and allows a little more fluidity and adaptatation to its approach on the part of the practitioner whilst Reiki is grounded in its formula, born in its Japanese tradition.
One does not better the other and they ultimately serve the same purpose, to facilitate healing, albeit through slightly differing approaches.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if this is something that is of resonance, you want to know more or are just curious and I'll be happy to talk more.
Let's make some magic ✨🦅💜🦅✨
Vegan nutrition as diabetes prevention?
A research team in Washington investigated, if the beta cell function as well as the insuline sensitivity (which play a role in the development of diabetes) are influenced by a vegan nutrition. 75 healthy, but obese (BMI 28- 40) people participated in the study. One group ate vegan food, the other group kept their normal eating behaviours (control group). The vegan group revealed a reduced BMI and a reduction of visceral fat. The insulin secretion after a meal was higher than the control group. At the same time the basal insulin secretion was lowered and the glucose sensitivity of the beta cells was improved.
As a possible mechanism an increased insulin secretion is discussed. The research team concluded, that a vegan nutrition can play an important role in diabetes prevention.
If the study participants would get less diabetes in the future, remains unclear. If the observed findings are possibly caused by giving up meat, less fat intake or weight loss, remains also unanswered.

Considering that an average person spends around 25 years of their lives sleeping, there has to be an important function to all that sleeping, right?
Well sleeping is the body's way of recovering from the day before and preparing you for the day to come. Everything from performance to fat loss is affected by a lack of sleep.
In terms of training, chronic lack of sleep causes the body to release cortisol which is a catabolic hormone also called the 'stress hormone'. Cortisol promotes fat storage and breaks down muscle tissue, yep your worst nightmare when trying to get lean and mean.
To make matters worse, levels of leptin (the hormone that makes you feel full) drops and ghrelin levels (the hormone that makes you feel hungry) increase which results in you feeling hungrier, this can lead to overeating.
But wait there's more, concentration and performance also suffers. You won't be able to train at your maximal capacity when training with little sleep. Studies done on athletes found that performance decreased significantly when they were restricted to 4 hours of sleep per day for 3 days!
So how much sleep does one need? If you can hit 7-10 hours per day, you're golden, anything below 6 is unacceptable.
