We don’t have a great day, we make it a great day! . Today I woke up tired, grumpy and sore. My foot is fine, it’s the rest of my body that is aching - lower back, upper back and neck. My body is over compensating in other places due to me not walking and being on crutches - it’s a daily battle in one way or another and some days it gets too much! . . I took Leo to school and then booked myself in for some #hyperbaric oxygen therapy to find my zen and to fast track the healing process with my foot. This was just what I needed to regroup and ground myself ☺️😀. . I then came home to rest and received some pretty exciting emails about upcoming opportunities. I have been in this fitness game for a very long time. I have invested YEARS of hustle, grind and sacrifice to get myself and my business to where it is so it’s days like today where I can really acknowledge the above and pat myself on my back👏🏼👏🏼. . I didn’t give up when it got tough nor did completely fall apart when my world was flipped on it’s head a few years ago. One thing that has helped me come this far is the DAILY practice of positive self talk and my inner dialogue, giving back to others and surrounding myself with like minded people 👌🏼😘. . DO the work, focus on YOU, your wellbeing and your mindset. In the toughest of times there will always be a silver lining, you just have to be awake enough to see things for how they really are. Great things await you if you are ready and open to receive them 🙌🏼🙏🏼💫❤️ . #mindsetiseverything #highsandlows #injured #opportunities #wellbeing #stayinyourlane #selftalk #selfbelief #justineswitalla #instafit #fitmum #wisdomwednesday . . 👉🏼 Online coaching enquiry’s link in my bio @justine_switalla 👈🏼 . .
💪🏼 #transformationtuesday 💪🏼 . Here are a couple of my clients - the images are taken only 2 weeks apart 👏🏼👏🏼 Both of them have reduced bloating, dropped body fat and look less puffy and inflamed! . . I put this down to a few things: . . Nutrition- eating the right amount of food that fuel and nourish their bodies ✅ . Support and accountability ✅ . Moving their bodies (in a respective way, not over training)✅ . And lastly, following a gut health protocol that all of my clients follow for 4 weeks when they start working with me✅ . Here is the thing, if your body isn't absorbing the nutrients from the food you are eating, then you will never feel the benefits of eating a healthy diet that is full of vitamins and minerals. If your digestive tract isn't in good health, then chances are you will only be absorbing the toxins that are stuck in there. Good gut health is crucial when it comes to your overall health and wellbeing. I love that I can offer this easy #guthealth protocol to my clients, it is definitely the missing link! . . There are so many variables to take into consideration when it comes to #Weightloss but with the right support and guidance you really can achieve your goals and start to thrive 🙌🏼❤️. . . . 👉🏼 Online coaching enquiry link is in my bio @justine_switalla 👈🏼 . . #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #weightlossideas #weightlossmotivation #onlinecoach #transformation #fatloss #nutrition #support #accountability #justineswitalla

Basking in the sun with my numero uno on this gorgeous Melbourne day ☀️😎🙌🏼. . I hope you’re all enjoying your Easter weekend so far 😍🙏🏼 . A few things I want to remind you of: . . ▶️ Food is neither good nor bad, refrain from labeling it as anything other than FOOD! . . ▶️Exercise is NOT a form of punishment! Don’t smash yourself in the gym to burn off the Easter eggs or count the calories you’re eating to then go and burn the same amount of calories burnt in the gym!! . . ▶️Just be mindful over the weekend and TRUST yourself! You can and are allowed to achieve your goals while enjoying life at the same time. Extremes are not healthy! . You got this 👊🏼❤️. . Happy Easter weekend everyone, enjoy it all 🥂💃🏻🍫🐇🐣🙏🏼 #easter #enjoy #mindful #fun #balance #cutie #family #motherandson #love #wine #chocolate #mindset #easterweekendtips #instafit #instafitness
My first proper workout in 4 weeks went down today, and I can tell you in between the odd ‘F bomb’, it felt AMAZING 🤮😄😅👊🏼💪🏼 . If today’s session was anything to go by, I’m super excited for what’s to come. We started with a lot of activation and mobility work before getting into the session 👌🏼💪🏼 A big focus now is on building up my weaknesses, core and glutes. Also focusing on a lot of single arm work to create more balance 👌🏼 . Call me crazy but I’ve missed the pump and that 🤮 feeling 😂🤣 @cro_sensei you legend, thanks for motivating me and helping this girl out in her time of need 🙏🏼 A firm but fair trainer who knows my capabilities and is pushing me mentally and physically. Let the love/hate relationship begin 😜👊🏼. . Here is a snippet of the workout, the first video is actually my finisher which was 20 secs on 40 off for 4 rounds on the air bike and I was GONE after that haha 🤮😅😂swipe left for more of the workout 😃 #injuredtraining #fracturedfoot #nothingwillstopme #determined #workingoutwhileinjured #airbikegotmegood #fit #strong #mindset #smashed #bestfeelingever

The journey of self discovery is never ending. We are constantly learning new things about ourselves and others, especially when we are challenged in life. . Some lessons I’m learning: . . Patience ☺️. . How to build more resilience 💪🏼. . Being more present 🙏🏼. . Learning who really has your back when you are dealing with challenges 🙌🏼 . Learning to love myself and be kind to myself more when the chips are down ❤️. . I’m still in the thick of it all and sometimes I look at my foot in disbelief, but I need to trust this new process and path that is ahead of me. . . We can’t change the past, all we have is the now and the ability to focus on today 🙏🏼❤️✨ #mondaymotivation #setbacks #life #fracturedfoot #onedayatatime #selflove #selfreflection #growth #challenges
