josieloubeck 4 overripe bananas otherwise destined for the bin, make the best banana muffins. Mama bear & Dave came for coffee & 4 quickly disappeared. I don't feel right if I don't have cake to offer visitors. #muffins #cake #baking #banana #shebakes #shecooks #imadethis #baker #baking #kitchen #homebaking #homecooking #instabaking #instafood 1d

josieloubeck Weekend walks in the sunshine with my daughter. ️🌞 Fitness for me means finding a balance between time spent in the gym & time spent with my family. Wherever possible I try to get them involved & outdoors. Fortunately I've got 3 kids who all love & play sport. They don't always want do do cardio with me but when the sun is shining it has to be done! Feeling so much better today after 9 hours sleep and some carbs! #weekend #sunshine #dailydogwalk #daughter #familytime #dailydogwalk #cardio #freshair #getoutside #fitness #inspiration #instagramfitness #instafit #contestprep #consistency #4weeksout #happiness 1d

josieloubeck It's getting to the stage in my diet where volume & satiety while keeping carbs & calories to a minimum are really important. Inspired by @alexesgate I made some green soup last night, enough for 16 portions, clocking up only 18 calories & 3g CHo per bowl. Add chicken & I've got a filling bowl of gorgeousness with 15% of my daily vit c requirement.
Green Soup
400g sweetheart cabbage chopped
100g celery chopped
100g spring onion chopped
100g spinach
3 stock melts
20g Thai red curry paste
2 Tbs fish sauce
1 tsp chilli flakes
1 bunch Thai basil chopped
2 stalks lemongrass chopped
2 inch finger of galangal grated
1/2 inch piece of shrimp paste
3 litres bottled water
Add all ingredients to pan, bring to boil & simmer for 15 minutes. Liquidise half & return to pan. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Makes 16 portions. Approx 18 Cals <1 fat 3 cho 1 P

  •   sophia.mirza25 Thanks for posting the recipe! Sounds delicious 4d
  •   josieloubeck The good thing @sophia.mirza25 is that it's filling & crazy low in Cals. Plus the heat really takes the edge off hunger x 4d
  •   sophia.mirza25 @josieloubeck I have all the spices you have used but I used pak choi, spinach, butternut squash and a tiny bit broccoli. Basically used everything I had in that needed to be used! Hope it looks as good as yours lol xx 3d

josieloubeck Took my daughter and her friend to see Pitch Perfect 2 last night. As a single mum who parents completely alone (my kids' dad sees them 3 times a year) it takes a lot of juggling to get time with them as individuals, so I appreciate & cherish every moment. I love being a mum, it is the best and most rewarding job in the world. #family #daughter #loveher #pitchperfect #movienight 4d
  •   mother_b_123 I can't wait to see it with @_ellie.brown_ next week! I know the feeling but the kids will always remember the great times they had with their mum and it's a shame what the dads are missing out on! Xx 4d

josieloubeck It's not Friday but I'm going to get my abs out anyway. I'm 48 & I have 3 children, 3 pregnancies in 4 years, 3 stone gained & lost with each one and then a divorce stress 3 stone booze baby. Having children or gaining weight doesn't mean you can't get fit & lean, you can if you put your mind to it! I'm very proud of these, can you tell? #abs #shredz #shelifts #diet #5weeksout #contestprep #consistency #compprep #bodyfitness #bodyfitnessmasters #bodyfitnesscompetitor #ukbff #ukbffnorth #nutrition #fatloss #health #nutrition #instafit #instagramfitness #fitfam #fitover40 #fitmom 5d
  •   ohmyitsloz I hope i look this good after having kids (infact I don't look this good now!) so inspiring 5d
  •   josieloubeck @emmaarcherpt @allmixedup23 @misscornwall @jrborama123 @ruthhinds @foxyhotgirl @ohmyitsloz thank you my lovelies! Still a fair bit to tighten up but I'm so happy that they are there! xx. 5d
  •   lustybrahh Great! 5d
  •   passed_it_ninja_turtle_ No way r u 48 mate u r amazing 5d
  •   misscornwall @josieloubeck so amazing!!! I hope I can look even half as good as this at 48 and after 3 kids!!! The human body is amazing & just goes to show what hard work and determination can get you. Real people inspire me more than anyone - the ones who have a normal hectic lifestyle & can't just train & sleep!! I found it so hard to keep my abs, I carry a lot of water there and its where my fat migrates... You've given me a kick up the arse today and guess where I'm going shortly.... x 5d
  •   josieloubeck @misscornwall Ah thank you Alice, that means a lot! xx 5d
  •   kydamo Wow! I just ran across your page... great physique! Nice progress! Your abs are looking awesome! Keep us posted :) 4d

josieloubeck My tickets for #teamgoldstar Table 1, best seats in the house. It's going to be noisy! Really can't believe that it's less than 5 weeks until my show. The nerves have kicked in but are spurring me on to make the most of every weights session & every minute of cardio. #ukbff #bodyfitness #bodyfitnessmasters #bodyfitnesscompetitor #5weeksout #teamgoldstar #figure #fitness #prep #contestprep #ukbffnorth 6d

josieloubeck Monday Motivation from @ifbbproscotland the woman who made me believe that I wasn't too old to step on stage. Proving that age & being a single mother is no barrier to success in Bodybuilding. Hard work & determination wins every time. #mondaymotivation #ifbbpro #figure #figurepro #newyorkpro #bodyfitness #bodyfitnesscompetitor #perfection #goals #fitspo #inspiration #fitness #instagramfitness #bodybuilding #ifbb #ukbff 7d

josieloubeck Fasted Sunday cardio: sprints followed by the first of the daily dog walks. 3 miles in the bag. Trying not to overdo the cardio as my legs are small enough. So much easier when I have a happy smiley boy to walk with! If I'm lucky I get one of the kids to come with me but they weren't keen today. 😴 #cardio #walk #fatloss #dailydogwalk #fasted #diet #consistency #contestprep #compprep #bodyfitnessmasters #bodyfitnesscompetitor #5weeksout #runkeeper 1w

josieloubeck 5 weeks out today! I'm starting to feel really nervous now, little bit tired but There's always a refeed to look forward to & so much support from friends in and out of the gym. My mum asked me today why I was doing this to myself. It's difficult to explain to someone who doesn't lift or want to compete just how empowering this whole process is! I may be shrinking in size week on week but on the inside I have definitely grown. #Saturdayselfie #gymlife #bodyfitness #bodybuilding #bodyfitnessmasters #bodyfitnesscompetitor #progress #prep #picslip #Delts #goldstar #consistency #compprep #contestprep #ukbff #5weeksout 1w

josieloubeck I think the key to a successful prep is satiety. Feeling like you've had a decent meal on very low carbs & very low calories is possible if you like veggies! My salad fills a serving bowl & takes me 20 minutes to eat yet contains only 7g Cho & 230 Cals. Spinach, cos, cucumber, celery, kale, half a tomato & chicken with Walden Farms zero calorie Italian dressing & chilli flakes to give it a kick. looking forward to my refeed & cheat meal tomorrow! #consistency #contestprep #lowcarb #protein #prep #diet #5weeksout #bodyfitnessmasters #bodyfitnesscompetitor #bodyfitness #bodybuilding #nutrition #pwo #meal3 1w
  •   misspowerpout Looks yummy! Xx 1w
  •   j_e_n_n_a_g Are the walden farms dressings any good? I'd eat lots more salad if it had more flavour but that often comes at a calorie cost! 1w
  •   josieloubeck @j_e_n_n_a_g the Italian is my favourite! It's really decent! You can add things to it, like chilli flakes or herbs. The balsamic & Caesar are ok too. The pancake syrup, caramel sauce & blueberry syrup are great too x 1w

josieloubeck 5 weeks 1 day out. First time I've been in a changing room since start of prep & really happy to see some quad striations coming through. Bought myself some size 6 shorts in the process! Actually feel like I look like a bodyfitness competitor, albeit a soft & little bit fluffy one! Really glad I chose not to go to Bodypower & get distracted/scared but stay home & focus on the task in hand. #progress #prep #bodyfitness #bodybuilding #bodyfitnessmasters #bodyfitnesscompetitor #5weeksout #ukbff #figure #Delts #quads #picslip #selfie #shelifts #shoulders #fitchick #fitness #instagramfitness #instafit #gymlife #fitfam #ukbff #ukfitfam #ukaesthetics 1w
