Back in the mid-2000s ( Throwback Thursday , y’all), while she was starring on the one show to feature more HOT women than any other show ever, Hollyoaks , Gemma Atkinson was everywhere. And by everywhere, I mean in addition to acting she was also doing glamour modeling on the side for British lad mags such as Arena, FHM, Loaded, Maxim, Zoo and Nuts . Which in turn meant that she was ALL OVER the internet and any man with a pulse who turned on a computer knew EXACTLY who Gemma Atkinson was. Sadly, almost all of those magazines are now extinct. (Yet, women continue to pose naked and half-naked in fashion magazines because that’s art or something, but I digress.) Anyhoo, for those of you that remember Gemma Atkinson, now 31-years-old, this is going to be a real blast from the past. And for those of you just now being introduced to her, well, you’re very welcome. And for anyone from Britain reading this who is like duh, of course we know her, just hush and enjoy.
Oh yeah, she is also kind of a badass now.
So my hip held out today! ?? Tomorrow morning may be a different story but the main thing Is, I did it! I know to some it’s no biggie but I’ve been putting off Thai boxing again for SO long in fear of getting injured and being in pain like that again. Its pathetic really. If in life you ever take a knock back, stand up, dust if off and carry on. In your line of work, your relationships, your training, anything! Don’t underestimate yourself. I wish I’d have had the confidence to go back sooner as I’ve been buzzing all afternoon all because of 1hr of kicking ass! ??
Yep, she could totally kick my ass, no two ways about it. And I would love every minute of it.
