Toronto, Canada. 23 year-old Abby Pollock is a happy-go-lucky young woman with a keen interest in health and fitness and a body that almost all women would die for. But it wasn’t always this way…
Just four years ago, Abby was extremely underweight. She suffered from eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia and would often skip meals or overeat and then force herself to vomit. She was ill and everyone – her family, friends and doctors – was concerned about her. Left unchecked, she could have died.
But the young Ms. Pollock decided to take ownership over herslef, her life and her body. And she’s now fit, healthy and in the correct weight zone. Not only that… But she has a Kim Kardashian booty as well!
Finally snagged me a @poprageous set 🔥😬. Did you know that there was a Leaf Queen who ruled the autumn season of Endor? In case you don’t know – Endor is the forest moon where all the precious little fur balls called Ewoks lived in Star Wars. The Leaf Queen along with her siblings shared the Season Sceptre, a powerful artifact that controlled the weather year round. Kinda badass if you ask me. Didn’t have any witty / deep reflection style things to say today, so hopefully you find the Leaf Queen as fascinating as I did. #wookiepedia #themoreyouknow
Abby used to eat less than a thousand calories a day! She would use the excuse of being on a raw vegan diet to justify her calorie intake and size.
Monday Mood🙈☕️. ENROLMENT IS NOW OPEN!! . The February "Appreciate Your Assets” Challenge has landed. For the next week, I will be re-opening enrolment for our TransformNation Membership program. . This month’s Get-Shit-Done Challenge has tons of easy-to-follow lessons and self-care assignments, journaling cues, and SO. MUCH. MORE. . If you’re tired of feeling awkward and self-conscious in the gym… Done with having zero confidence in (or out) of clothes… AND If you’re FINALLY ready to feel comfortable in your own skin… . It’s time to stop scrolling IG seeing #fitspo after #fitspo with “unattainable” bodies and START loving your body as it is right here, right now. . LINK IN BIO to learn more👀🙃!
When she interviewed by Cosmopolitan magazine recently she said this: “I told myself I was following these diets for ethical reasons, when really I was using them as a means to further restrict and cover up my disordered habits.”
FB LIVE STREAM 8:00PM EST (join link in bio): The 4 BIGGEST Mistakes Made By Beginners. . One of the BIGGEST mistakes I see women make is that they’re not eating enough. Eating 1000 calories a day took constant willpower. I had to constantly plan and re-plan what I was eating so I didn’t accidentally go over or eat a food that was “off-limits”. Aside from the fact that I was physically drained from eating so little, I was mentally drained from obsessing over such a trivial part of my life. Eating 1700 calories a day (pic on the right) was how much I was eating on a HEALTHY DIET. On the right I was leaning out for a bodybuilding competition and was still losing weight + reaching a low body fat while eating this many calories a day 🍎👏. . What I want you to pay attention to here is: (1) how I’m carrying myself and (2) the difference between bone vs. muscle. (1) On the left, my shoulders are hunched, my back is to the camera and based on memory, I know I was NOT smiling. On the right, my shoulders are back, chest up, and I’m SMILING proud 🤗. (2) On the left, I have “shape” only because I’m so thin that you can see my bones. Had the lighting been different, you would have seen my full rib cage. On the right, I am lean but strong, shapely and sculpted 💪! . If you want shape / tone / or that tight sculpted bikini look, you will not get it by starving yourself. Nothing good will come from starving yourself. By not eating enough calories, you starving your body and mind, ultimately sabotaging your own progress. Sorry not sorry for the rant. Girl got passion 🔥💕. See you on the live stream!
Now she regularly consumes up to 2,000 calories a day and it’s all good. She’s even a bit of an internet celebrity after her pictures went viral!
As I sit here contemplating the week ahead, I can’t help but feel a strange sense of happiness🙃. Last week I got a pretty serious wake up call. My living arrangements will be up in the air as of September and I have no idea how I’m going to bridge the income gap I need to live the lifestyle I want. Somehow I 100% okay with this though. – I go through cycles of feeling dissatisfied and putting immense amounts of pressure on myself to be MORE, working very hard, achieving, then enjoying temporary satisfaction like I am now. It’s stressful and it’s probably quite unnecessary, but this is me. I want to learn more, experience more, and achieve more so that ultimately I can be MORE. – I used to be bitter about my wealthier friends who didn’t have to pay their rent, tuition, or worry if their career plans failed. I used to avoid uncertainty and instability like my life depended on it. But ever since I graduated and took this leap of faith toward entrepreneurship, I’ve gradually become more and more open to the risk. I’ve built a confidence and set of values that while not infallible, seem to always point me in the direction of my vision. I’ve spent long enough hibernating. This is a season of growth and I am ready to conquer it🔥⚡️.
Abby has shown an incredible mental strength and a gritty determination.
