“I get asked everyday about motivation.. My motivation is me, end of. I quite literally woke up one day & decided No. No more. And that really was that and I never looked back. Not once. Yeah, it’s been bloody hard at times. Going through the frustration of trial & error to find what works for me, but the goal has always been the same, “To be the best I can be” and that’s what I work for day by day. Sure the goals change, first I needed to be skinny, then I needed to be match, then I needed to be robust and now I simply need to be completely happy & wholesome.”
