Some examples would be..
and bench 👍 ➡️ progressive overload
➡️ heavier weights and intensities ➡️ rep range between 1-6
The more weight you are adding..the stronger you are getting...the stronger you get...the more muscle you are growing. Win win 💪🏽🔥
When we are stressed an amazing thing can happen. As our cortisol is released so too is our hormone oxytocin.
Oxytocin is our social and love hormone. It is released when we connect with someone, when we get a hug, when we pat a dog.
This is fascinating because our body is so sophisticated that it knows - when you are stressed you need help. It's your body telling you to reach out to someone.
The other amazing thing is that as our oxytocin increases, our cortisol decreases. So. If you are feeling stressed - reach out.
REACH OUT to colleagues, family, friends and reach out to me. I can help you manage stress better and reduce the side effects stress can bring.

Another team member alert! And one long post.
Alright peeps, let me intro you to Sam. There's funny story about how this came to be that IG prolly won't give me the space to tell properly so I'll paraphrase.
I needed some music for a class I was getting set up. I reached out to Sam because he had some real chill beats I wanted to mix in on cool downs. Sam thought I was trying to sell him something and basically wouldn't talk much because he wasn't looking for a trainer. I told him I was interested in some of his beats, and he felt like a jerk. 😂😂 I blame them beach body cats! Lol. JK.
Fast forward a couple months, he approaches me about creating a program for him. And I honestly didn't think he was serious.
But he was. The thing is, I don't create programs just for anyone to run through. I told him as such. I said if he wanted that, he would do better to do a Google search for workouts. But if he wanted me to build something for him, I would need to see where he was. By the end of the week, we were in there for upper body day.
What we have set up is one week of testing. These are workouts that combine strength focus schemes with hypertrophy focused schemes with some core work and cardio at the end. Then I can get to him the program he needs, not just A program.
But HIS program.

Breakfast from today! Got this delicious veggie hash with an egg on top 🍳and also split a piece of banana bread 🍌. Is anyone else so sad it's Sunday?? This weekend went by SO quickly! I spent yesterday and today in St. Louis visiting friends with was a great change of scenery but now I'm just getting home soooo I don't think grocery shopping will be be happening tonight 🤷🏻♀️always good to have a break from the routine though!
Right now I am fired UP creatively. This is at least in part the result of being in a training all week and couldn’t work on anything business related and also the fact that I was couped up inside with a cold the last few days.
I love finding inspiration in places both known and unexpected even if it’s from under the duvet cover.
Yesterday we ventured out to our local pumpkin patch and enjoyed making memories with family and friends. I was so excited to see actual pumpkins growing out of the ground rather than the ones that were shipped in when I was living in the city. These pumpkins inspired me to create a pumpkin recipe that I will share with you later week.
What’s inspiring you today?
Had a fun time at the Lamoille pumpkin patch today with my little love 💕
Stay ready so you never have to get ready.... Be in shape year- round #ejhawkinsxfit
When you think you are down to dance 😅
💛Idk what life would be like without my scorpios & I dont ever want to know💛
The colors of New Orleans meets the mountains of Teatonic
Intended hiking day turned into a massive mental health (& by mental health I mean binge eating/spending💸) day with the besties...
Fresh nails 💅🏻
Burgers for dinner 🍔
Couldn’t pass up a Jeni’s stop🍦
Oh & some completely necessary shopping 👗
I can officially vouch that it is 100% possible to feel like complete crud (#noregrets
) and absolute awesomeness at the exact same time!! Sometimes you’ve just gotta go with it...for sanity’s sake. Thankful for friends who will ride along with me no questions asked! ❤️
I hope you've all been having a great week! 💗 I can't believe we're over half way through October already 🍁🍂Soon it'll be Christmas eeeek! 🎄
. . .
I have been very busy lately, going on property viewings, planning and managing a property refurb, as well as working on my secret project!!! 🤗 All will be revealed soon darlings! I promise 💕
. . .
But for now I leave you with a yummy bowl of porridge to kick start the day 🥄 How do you start your day?!
🌰 ACTIVATE 🌰
. . .
Whipping up another batch of activated nuts! This time I did pecans and peanuts 😋 They were long soaking yesterday, and slow drying over night. I have been experimenting with creating homemade peanut butter using the activated nut as they are easier to digest. But I can't seem to get the smooth consistency that I want, and I'm too scared that if I keep my food processor on for too long she will die on me 😂 Maybe when I can afford a super duper one, will I be able to create my oh so desired activated nut butters 🤗
. . .
Have you got a great recommendation for a food processor?!
Find someone who gazes lovingly at you the way Roscoe does to me😍😆 Feeling like the Jolly Green Giant in my @americanapparel
I've been getting ready for dinner party season 🥂 I will be hosting my very first dinner party in my house, which means it will be the first time using the dining room 🙌🏼 (4 months after moving in 😅)
. . .
I've just randomly placed things in baskets under the console table for now, so I will probably rejig those before my first official dinner party in 10 days. I also have a couple of pictures I'm hoping to get up on the wall before then.
. . .
There are so many things you don't think about though when it's just you eating. Have I got enough place mats?! Should I use plates or bowls?! What glasses should I use? Should I have a centrepiece?! Buffet style food or plated food?! And the all important question what should I cook to show off my culinary genius?! 🤣🤣 No pressure! I think I'll rope mum in to help 😇
💓 Happy Tuesday Darlings 💓
. . .
I have got so many things to do, and so many lists, that the gym is having to take a back seat once again. When I'm there I think about all the work I've got to do and when I'm working I'm thinking Ooo, it would be good to train today 😅 Do you have that conversation with yourself?! For the next few months I have got to give my work 100% but hopefully I can squeeze a few workouts in once I've got the majority of my to-do list under control!
. . .
I also feel like I've forgotten how to dress for colder weather 😂⛄ But you can't go wrong with some Christmassy socks 🐧❤
