THE TRUTH ABOUT FITNESS PROGRESS 😱 - 📉 So you want to know the truth about making fitness progress huh? Let me tell you... - First and foremost, it’ll likely take you longer then you think to reach your goals. - Second, you’ll likely run into more obstacles than you anticipated on your journey. - Third, it’s gonna be a lot of hard work, and definitely not a cake walk (though you could eat a piece of cake along the way so long as you understand moderation, portion control and calories in vs. calories out). - Four... it’s ALWAYS easier with a friend, coach or accountability buddy, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do it alone, it’s just harder that way. - Fifth, you WILL get there so long as you follow your program and do not quit. I promise you that. - So no matter where you are — or where you want to be — be patient (what other choice do you have?), work hard, sweat often and eat well. You got this, and I believe in you! . . . . . . . . #alldayphysique #weightloss #dieting #fatloss #fatlossjourney #nutritionplan #nutritioncoach #nutritiontips #ifitfitsyourmacros #dietstartstomorrow #cardiosucks #fitnessmotivation #highprotein #caloriecounting #weightwatchers #proteinshake #flexibledieting #preworkout #irishfitfam #fitsporation #fitnessgoals #fitnesslifestyle #intermittentfasting #weightlosssupport #fitness #cleaneating #fitspo

Monday was normally my cardio and abs days but given I’ve cut things down, I did a full upper body workout today. Again finally got some decent weight up again including 40lb bent over rows with no pain from the hernia site. Little successes and feeling like I’m getting more motivation back everyday. . . #ohfitnessfurnace #irishfitfam #canadianfitfam #motivation #girlswholift #girlgains #gymsharkwomen #herniarepair #recovery

Some quality progress this week 📉 Easily the best I've looked and felt so far this cut 💯🤙#deletingskinn #layerbylayer
While driving from Waterford to kilarney, I decided to stop at the beautiful Lismore for lunch. The Lismore castle is the first thing you notice on your right while crossing the bridge. Lismore itself, is a beautiful little town where you can go for a walk with beautiful sights. It's the perfect place for a quick lunch and a walk to digest! . . . . . #travelislife #wanderluster #travelnow #travellers #travelwriter #travelbag #postcard #amazingtrip #worldwide #photobomb #neverstopdreaming #outsideisfree #roamtheplanet #tagsta_travel #tourism #ig_europe #ireland #irishsetter #irishwolfhound #irishfitfam #travelers #aroundtheworld #instatraveling #trip #visiting #girlswhotravel #sheisnotlost
#Repost @topgymnutrition ・・・ ALCOHOL 101 🍷 by @maxweberfit If you’re drinking alcohol this weekend and don’t want to ruin your fitness progress.... read on! ⠀⠀ Liquid calories add up quick! Especially when they come from alcohol. ⠀⠀ That’s why it makes sense to choose low-calorie options when you’re out for a drink, and not opting for high-calorie, high-sugar options like margaritas or fruity mixed drinks! ⠀⠀ Instead, go with something from the list above and keep your calories in check! ⠀⠀ Also, you can swap your soda for a zero calorie alternative (coca cola to Coke Zero) to save calories on your mixed drinks too! ⠀⠀ Lastly, it’s often not the calories directly from alcohol that ruin our progress, but rather all the food we blindly eat once we are drunk — so if you can, plan ahead and instead of an entire pizza, maybe just one slice! Okay? 🍕 ⠀⠀ And as always... if you’re drinking, you should not be driving. Be safe and be responsible. Your life (and others lives) depends on it. Cheers! 🍻 ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #topgymnutrition #irishfitfam #ifitfitsyourmacros #caloriecounting #myfitnesspal #weightlossdiary #liftingweights #fitlife #getshredded #shreddedlife #pumpingiron #bodyengineers # #nutritiontips #fitnessjunkie #fitnesstime #fitnessphysique #highprotein #flexibledieting #dietstartstomorrow #weightlosssupport #nutritionplan #foodforfuel #mealprepping #eatwellbewell #healthyrecipes #fitfoodie #healthybreakfast #fitfoods #healthylifestyle

A few sets at 120kg for high bar today. Nothing impressive but just working on getting back to some decent weight. Felt really good today considering I did 60 deadlifts at just over 100kg yesterday. Oh and found out today that I’m doing Centrals in August, so I’m officially back baby!!!! #powerlifting #lbbylbpersonaltraining #threewhitelightspowerlifting #the519 #fitfam #irishfitfam #fitat40 #squats #neverstoptheprogress #liftdifferently #comebackstronger #comeback #getunderthebar #everyday
Flags a nice change. But contacts better. Throwback to playing flag vs the new university of ulster elks team with the original guys. . . . . #americanfootball #iafa #uuc #ireland 🍀 #irishfitfam #throwback #flagfootball #flagfootball 🏈
. ❌This Used To Be Heavy❌ . Progress doesn't have to be a number moving on the scales . It can be how good you feel . Strong is the new, oh wait always was the sexy 👀💪🏻😬 .
. Just becuase your doing a lot more Doesnt mean your getting a lot more done How much time you spend at something Does not matter But what you do in your time that is what is more important Dont confuse Movement with progress . #natty #nosteriods #gym #gymlife #gymmotivation #gymrat #bodybuilder #bodybuildingmotivation #bodybuilding #physique #classicphysique #mensphysique #flyefit #fitness #fitfam #irishfitfam #ukfitfam #chest #Internationalchestday #chestworkout #chestday #workout #delts #reardelts #abs #motivational #motivationalquotes #motivation
I did a cupcake tour with my cousin and his girlfriend in Seattle this week! I must say the vegan cupcakes at @cupcakeroyale are super tasty!!
Live it like you love it 😊
We don’t need the best mat / yoga pants / until we’ve more time / the right place to just enjoy being in our bodies. If you feel like doing a few random poses of choice that you enjoy, then just do it! Don’t worry about having “the right gear”; or having a sequence to follow; trust your body to tell you what feels good. If you hold out for the “perfect” time, you might find yourself waiting - seize the moment! 🙏 🔼After class, 9pm, Converse on and dogs waiting at home for their nightly walk. There is no such thing as perfect conditions! . . . . . #nosuchthingasperfect #justdoit #listentoyourbody #gowithyourgut #gowiththeflow #converse #yogainconverse #ekapadakoundinyasana #astavakrasana #babygrasshopper #armbalance #floating #irishfitfam #yogaeverywhere #loveyourbody #ebb_flow_yoga

I cannot describe how happy I am right now to have been able to get back on the bag tonight. A little rusty as haven't gone near it in nearly 4 years due to my shoulder injury. But seeing as my shoulder has been pain free the past few days, I thought sod it lets see how it goes. Pretty much used 10 minutes on the bag to finish off my session tonight. I'm wiped, but on an emotional high! Let's see how this little shoulder of mine holds out 🤞
“BUT, does it equal good results?- depends on what you’re consistent with. If you’re eating crappy food you’ll get crappy results. When we say this, it’s not an easy way of improving, what it is though is a recipe that we can follow. If your results are not falling into place the way you want, ask YOURSELF, what am I doing consistently even if it’s being inconsistent. Then, ask yourself if that’s a fair result....because it usually is, but for you, INDIVIDUALLY, for your own skill set. For somebody else it may seem ridiculous, they may have had an easier path but it doesn’t matter, because the race is with one person, YOU, where you’re heading and where you’re going.” - Robert Follis R.I.P
Maximum Effort Lower Body day on the @defrancosgym SB911 program. I used this program to pack on mass in the past and I’m using the exact same program now to cut body fat. When it comes to building Muscle and burning fat the training principles remain the same. What changes is energy balance (calories in vs out) You have to provide the body with enough stimulus to want to preserve muscle while in a caloric deficit and so I continue to train as if I were trying to build mass. I just reduce my calories by about 5% below maintenance and go from there keeping protein at 2.2g per kilo lean body mass. This session was 5RM trap bar deadlift (200kg), 24” High step-ups 3 x 8/side, RDLs 3 x 10@ 100kg and Weighted Plank 3 x 30 secs at 30kg #focus #gym #strengthandconditioning #deadlifts #sb911 #squats #powerlifting #fatloss #muscle #irishfitfam

STRUGGLE TO STRONGER Life isn't always easy, It's not an insta perfect highlight reel.....It's real! At times we may struggle, At time we may be trialled, tested and tired by lifes challenges. But without challenge there can not be change. Always remember tomorrow is another day and if today was a little harder, tomorrow you will be a little stronger! _____________________________________________ (Saturday's double body weight deadlift 3 x 1 after working sets 130kg @65kg ) . . . . _________________________________ #IrishFitFam #UkFitFam #HealthBlogger #FitnessBlogger #HealthAndWellbeing #MentalHealth #Lifestyle #Motivation #StrongBody #StrongMind #BodyAndMind #Mindset #StrongGirls #Strength #StrongWomen #GirlsWhoLift #Pma #Fitness #Mobility #Deadlifts #PowerLifting #Legday #MentalHealthAwareness #SuicidePrevention #YouthMentalHealth #SelfCare #LifeLessons
