Sometimes I wonder
Is a scale accurate?
Chest & triceps today😋 When I workout, I always only focus on 1-2 muscle groups during that session. That way you really target those muscles and break them down.👌🏼
Beauty looking for her beast 💁♀️❤💪 You know workout with, meal prep with, drink protein shakes and cuddle, and you can check out my booty in between reps 😜 Killed chest and back today 💪💪 And then had to carry up groceries so double workout...feeling the burn 😂 Meal #1
breakfast (not pictured) half a peach, two scoops protein powder, meal #2
one cup cottage cheese, and 1/4 cup blueberries and an ACTUAL serving of peanut butter 😂😂 Had this with black coffee on ice with 15mls almond milk. meal #3

post workout was premier protein shake new fav flavor caramel 💕💕 1201 calories so far and honestly I'm not hungry so not sure if I'm going to eat my last meal but if I do it will be egg whites and steel cut oats with cinnamon and a few dried cranberries because I don't want any meat 👌

Not every day is as energetic and easy, some days I absolutely need my pre work out🙌🏼. ———————————

I’ve made a new promise to myself - take more risk. I’ve decided that I’m not holding back my thoughts or feelings anymore. I’m going to start asking myself- what’s the worst that could happen? Followed with - what if you never do - what could you miss out on? You miss every shot you don’t take. I’m making some shots. Let’s see what happens. #risktaker #faceyourfears #positivevibes #selflove #challengeyourself #motivation
Unilateral exercises are single-leg or single-arm movements. The primary benefit of including unilateral exercises in your training programs is that the exerciser is using both sides of the body equally. Doing so helps your clients avoid overtraining or overusing the dominant side, helps to isolate and correct muscle imbalances, improves balance, utilizes core muscles, aids in injury prevention and facilitates rehabilitation.
Compared to bilateral training, unilateral training facilitates rehabilitation to a greater degree. When you train one side of the body the other side is also stimulated. Indirect stimulation of the non-working side of the body via working the opposite side improves strength in the injured area. This is called cross-education of muscles, and is a neural event. The brain pathways that are used for the primary unilateral exercise stimulate the same muscles on the opposite side of the body. The key to applying cross-education is to recognize that it works for the same muscles on the opposite side of the body only. For example, doing a single-leg knee extension with the right leg stimulates the left quadriceps muscle, but not the left hamstrings.
Cross-education is greatest for lower-body muscles and when eccentric (lengthening) contractions are used to train the working muscles (Manca et al., 2017). However, concentric (shortening) contractions also work, as do isometric (no change in length) contractions, though to a much lesser degree.
🔥Why do we decide to eat?🔥
Simply put, we eat for two reasons.
We eat to get the energy our body needs, and to keep our biological system balanced (aka homeostasis). Hedonic eating:
We eat for pleasure (aka hedonism), or to manage our emotions.
Most meals are a mix of homeostatic and hedonic eating.
We do know that ghrelin, the “hunger hormone”, stimulates our appetite. It peaks just before meals, and falls during and immediately after eating.
Yet ghrelin is not the only factor in hunger or the decision to eat. For example, research shows that mice without ghrelin still eat regularly, just like the mice with ghrelin.
Although taking in nutrients is as old as biology, we still don’t know why and how humans get hungry and decide to start eating. Hunger and eating is shaped by many factors, including:
As you can imagine, it’s complicated. So, science still doesn’t have “the secret” to hunger and eating. (Yet.) We do, however, know a lot about why we stop eating.
Why do we stop eating?
Once we’ve started eating, what makes us stop?
This is in part influenced by satiation — the perception of fullness you get during a meal that causes you to stop eating. (Satiety is sometimes used interchangeably with satiation, but the terms aren’t the same. Satiety is your perception of satisfaction, or reduced interest in food, between meals; satiation is your perception of fullness during a meal.) When we eat a meal, two physiological factors work together to tell us to put down our fork and call it quits: gastric distension and hormonal satiation.
I bought this set of 25 pound dumbbells earlier this year for leg day workouts. Pretty proud that I’m using them for some upper body stuff now💪🏻👊🏻 Progress feels so GOOD!!
eat your heart out! Official race day photo, couldn’t really breathe but managed a sprint finish at the end, and you know what absolutely loved the race @city2surf.
Next year I might actually train (and wear a costume that doesn’t cover my face...) #mysurflife
Have you been told that ‘Low Carb’ or ‘Zero Carb’ is the only way to lose body fat? If so, you’ve been lied to. .
- [ ] At the same time - if you’ve cut carbs because it’s something you’ve read in a magazine and all you’re eating is salads and STILL not seeing results... the have a look at this image.
‘No Carb’ Chicken Salad with a whipping 880 calories, probably won’t keep you full, and probably double the calories you’d have eaten if you’d have picked a burger or a sandwich.
Carbs do not make you fat. Too many calories make you fat. So don’t cut carbs just to eat double the amount back in the form of fats like bacon, sauces, avocado cheese and eggs. You can still get loads of micronutrients in by consuming a carbohydrate based meal that’ll be less calories.
Answering another one of the most asked questions about carbohydrates and Fatloss. Tomorrow I’ll go into Macros 😎
