Session lasted all but 5 mins before I got a band pinging into my eye 🤦🏽♀️ - Hello Mondayyy 💁🏽♀️👌🏻💤
HAPPY MONDAY! Triceps & Biceps 💪🏼💕
just a bit of self motivation, maybe you can get some too💪🏽2015 was a weird year for me. I had finished gaining back 25kg after a year of anorexia, i was mentally still very unwell, wasn’t at school, and my organs were still not functioning. but i thought that because i had gained weight, i was healthy and ready to begin life again normally. it was so frustrating that i felt so healthy but i still couldn’t do anything with my life. that photo was from my first time back at the beach, but i wasn’t allowed to swim because the cold water could trigger a heart attack. i was stuck in a paradox👉🏽my malnourished brain could not understand why i was unhealthy. this is a trap i have seen others fall into in my journey. some of my fellow patients ended up relapsing, giving up. however i had a goal, a really distant one at the time, but i had a defined goal i knew i had to achieve. it was the only thing i could grasp onto that made sense. i had always been an athlete, and i wanted to become professional, elite, experienced-whatever i called it. i wanted to do more than what i could imagine. 3 years later i have surpassed expectations i had as a 13 year old. not only did i survive, but i went back to school, topped my courses, got back into the world and delved into the sport of powerlifting. i found myself surrounded by similar athletes with incredible mindsets and great advice and constructive critical i THRIVED off! now i’m faced with so many opportunities with competing and my future, i wish i could tell my 12 and 13 year old self just what it would be like. maybe when i’m 18 or 20 id want to tell me now, at 16, what to do. ☝🏽but that’s how life works, we can’t go back in time and change things...but we can have PERSPECTIVES that allow us to PREDICT and rationally plan what we do next 💪🏽 think beyond you know, your future self will thank you!

HOW OFTEN IS IT OKAY TO EAT OUT ON A DIET?
It depends on YOU. And your ability to eat in moderation/balance.🤭 Look at your WEEKLY calories/intake...👀
If you eat 100 calories less than what you maintain on 6 days a week, then have a meal out 600 calories on top of your normal. Using the maths, you’re going to maintain👌🏼 Now a meal out for some people can mess with their mindset and end up having a “cheat weekend” instead of “cheat meal”.🤦🏻♀️
....But learning how to eat in moderation will really help with sustainability and motivation🙌🏼
Rollin’ with the Baddest 💎
As long as we move forward we will be good, it can be a cm an inch a foot a mile just push! Let’s make it as far as possible before we leave this floating rock in space. Remember never shy away from teamwork. if you need to find someone with a common goal to push each other then watch yourself destroy what you considered impossible in the past.
Basically a cheesecake in tart form 🧀 Still 110% worth it 😋
I usually breeze over captions but I wanted to make this one more meaningful and dedicate it to all the recent events happening. This piece is sort of a metaphor for life, illustrating the world we live in and how we are lost in the flow of things. We don't think much for ourselves and conform to what society expects. Essentially, we're all just another koi fish aimlessly swimming in the pond. This needs to change and we need to gain a new sense of normalcy. I believe that we should talk about topics that will bring us out of this close-minded bubble. We should start with mental health.
It truly puzzles me that mental health has become silenced into a stigma when instead this should be a topic that we feel comfortable actively discussing with each other. We have all been programmed to have this mindset that it's somehow not acceptable or okay to voice our opinions. What's wrong with trying to become more informed, wanting to grow, helping each other, and being brought closer together? I really don't understand it.
I feel like everybody should have the right to live their life how they want. If you do want to talk about it, great. If you don't, fine. But nobody should feel scared or guilty for being themselves. Nowadays, it's hard to find people who are truly themselves and even harder for some to express themselves. But those who find the strength to speak up for who they are are the strongest. Know that by having this courage to talk to someone and getting the help you deserve, you are anything but weak. You're unfiltered. You carry this strength that is undeniable. You are one in a million. And you deserve to be here because you are what this world needs. We need more people like you. The kind who asks questions. The kind who are comfortable in their skin. The kind who aren't afraid to speak their minds.
So remember this. You don't need permission or anybody's validation to be happy. Only you can determine this. Know that whatever makes you 100% you is more than enough. If we all had this mindset, we'd be living in a world where we don't have to sacrifice ourselves and break others down to bring ourselves up.
I made one of the best decisions for myself one year ago. To say that I love lifting is an understatement. It's not only changed my life but has become a lifestyle for me. It has made me physically and more importantly mentally stronger. It has taught me that it's not selfish to focus on yourself and only yourself.
I remember always stepping on the scale and letting that number define me and my happiness. Honestly, looking back, I don't regret it. It's made me realize that I was mentally weak and that's okay because it's given me room to grow and a mindset I know to avoid. To anyone reading this, never sacrifice yourself or denote your worth to digits or someone else's opinion. As long as you take care of yourself and are happy, that's all that matters. Nobody can take away from your value. Don't let anything or anyone change how you view yourself or your happiness. Every single person is worth so much more than that.
But tbh, lifting and the fitness industry has shown me that hard work, discipline, and consistency are all equally important in order to achieve your goals. You have to go in with a positive mindset and kill each workout to the best of your ability. Even outside of the gym, all of these apply. I honestly respect bodybuilders, powerlifters, and athletes of all levels because damn you guys work so freaking hard.
I could honestly go on and on but I won't. Here's to a year and many more to come. Have a great day y'all. ❤
