YES!!! I can actually do an inverted lotus!
6 months ago I tried and epically failed (see last post for hilarity) but I randomly gave it a go last night after a very heavy leg session at the gym and low and behold... 🏻
practice makes perfect 🏻

When someone asks for the time, I'm always ready ⏱
It's interesting because people lately always say to me: "Oh you're so good though, you just have good willpower" like it's natural. Let me tell you one thing, having the emotional power and discipline over my food and my habits, is NOT something I was born with and it comes down to the fact that it's a skill and its one I've chosen to pursue. I wasn't born driven, I didn't choose the right behaviours initially, I didn't look after my mental or physical health, I wasn't born with amazing genetics or born into a long family line of healthy ansestors, actually in fact I was an over weight child most of my life and I craved food more than anything- for comfort, so for me controlling what I eat is extremely difficult, but it's a skill.
Just like every other human being on the planet, I love food and I hate pain, and controlling what I put in my mouth and going to the gym puts your body through temporary pain and discomfort that's the truth. The truth is is that to get to the level of adhearence and consistency that i am at, I worked on it every single day for 4+ years now, and believe me on day one it was excruciating to say no to a cigarette and on day one it's was painful not eating all the food I felt like, and on day one it was so daunting not taking that tablet I always took, or not calling that person I would call. Actually on day 100 it was still painful, but not as painful as day 1. It's not easy believe me I understand, but that's not the argument here.
And still now I'm still working through even more layers of behaviours that arise that we're holding me back and are continuing to hold me back now, even though I have conquered so many addictions and bad habits. Every day I do this. So when someone says- oh you're just so good at it though. Yes I am. Because I put the time in to change the underlying issues I really had going on that was causing me to abuse my body and in turn have no control over my eating, lifestyle and exercise.
