Excited I freedived to -65.3 meters (214 ft) today!
A new in-ketosis, carnivore diet PB! 💙💃✨
Best part was...it was EASY, SUPER EASY! And I felt absolutely AMAZING!
After six months of reprogramming my body to use fat for fuel versus sugar / carbs, and CURING 100% my chronic health issues, mental and physical, things in my freediving training are taking shape!
And heck it hasn’t been easy, with oxalate dumping - the body repairing itself after 34 years of consuming high oxalate foods, also lactic acid issues and therefore specific training for that, among other things, but I stuck through it for lack of a better option (it was either that or go back to being sick all the time!!)
And now, feeling THE BEST I’ve ever felt in my life! And healthier than I’ve ever been, stronger than I’ve ever been, more focused, happier, more motivated and hopefully soon will freedive deeper than I’ve ever dived 🙂
Everyday I’m still tinkering with my nutrition and training, and I will always be tinkering, as my life is always changing, my body is always changing, so therefore my nutrition and training will also always be changing and developing, especially as I learn and try new things and as my body adapts.
So let’s see where it goes! Nobody knows! I don’t of any other competitive freedivers eating only meat, so it’s an interesting experiment!

WHITE CARD!! ✨
A successful -63 meter free-immersion freedive today in the Dahab Championship 💪🎉
A freediving competition is def THE ultimate challenge; you have just a 30 second window to start your dive while maintaining focus, confidence, mental & physical relaxation, all while keeping your heart rate as low as possible (!!) not letting your nerves, any negative thoughts, or your emotions get in the way of what it is you’ve set out to do. 😅✨
For me every comp has posed new challenges and hurtles. For this particular comp, I had to go to work on my deep equalization technique.
Except in the very beginning when learning, I never once struggled with mouthfill equalization so I suppose I became a bit overconfident and lazy about it, doing one big charge and expecting it to take me all the way to the bottom. That worked for a while this season...until I reached over -60 meters.
It came to the point that I had to do something! Because I wasn’t reaching my target depths (not just on day 1 of the comp but also a few times in training! 😣)
So I went back to mouthfill basics! And spent my rest day yesterday with the good ol’ water pipe and octovent working on the different mouthfill exercises 😅
And the hard work paid off! Today I arrived at the bottom plate EASY, well pretty easy, and with PLENTY more air to equalize with!! 💃💃💃
I arrived back on the surface feeling super fresh and happy, it was EPIC 😊
Big thanks to my AMAZING BFF Sol Schmitz, who was coaching and assisting me in the water today. And also my good buddy Raphael Freediver for his positive vibes and encouragement. Also thank you George Panagiotakis for his guidance and remote coaching.
A pic with my incredible team, me holding the tag I fetched at -63 meters 💙✨🎉

Level 3 Freediving Course
SUCCESS on today’s -62 meter freedive on day 2 of the Dahab Championship Freediving Competition 💃🎉✨
Day 1’s -62 meter dive was a botch due to equalization 😣 I ran out of air to equalize at -59 meters argh and didn’t want to push it! (I don’t think any dive, even a comp dive, is worth riding the ears and risking an ear injury!)
So I received a yellow card (penalty) and 55 points instead of 62 😞
Soooo yesterday (on the day off) I devoted to sorting out my mouthfill equalization technique... charging a bit shallower (like -16m 😳) and fuller, and then continuous topping up until about -26/27 meters, then right into a steady freefall.
Then I also added a half kg weight to my belt to help a relax a bit more during the descent and freefall a bit faster 😊
So today (finally) a successful dive to -62 meters 💃✨💙 With help and coaching in the water from my dear friend Sol Schmitz and positive vibes and team effort with Raphael 🥰✨
Rest day tomorrow then day 3, last day of the Dahab Championship so stay tuned! 🤗✨

There is magic in our ability to be soft and strong, fierce and fragile, to bend without breaking, to rise without falling...
Just take it one day at a time, slow and steady, and with the right mindset, the commitment, drive and passion you can do anything, and achieve everything.
That's my motto, what's yours? 😜💪

Giving anything less than our best is sacrificing our potential...
Wherever we are, wherever we are going, we owe it to ourselves and to the world, that we do whatever we are doing with passion, determination and unrelentlessness.
