My cat is like an abstract work of art. Sometimes I can’t tell where he begins and where he ends, unless his mouth or eyes are open. Chillaxed is an understatement when describing how he is, day and night... and I should learn from him. Today is a day for me to remind myself of “social cleansing”. Meaning that I need to go through each and every person I’ve added or followed on my social media. I was overly concerned with who I keep around me in the “real” world, and neglected my social platforms, not realizing the sad truth that to many of us, the social networks have become a real part of our lives. I spend a lot of time on IG, I like to follow different accounts on gardening and tattoo artists, and realized the bunch of negative ppl I still follow. Granted, you might think so what? But being exposed to their energy on a daily or weekly basis starts rubbing off on you, and I can’t have that. So congrats if I still follow you and make an effort to keep in touch, whether it’s by texting you, calling you, or even liking/commenting on your posts. If I don’t, well, it just shows what energy I perceive from you. #nobullshit #positiveenergy #positivevibe #cat #catsofinstagram #chilled #relax #thoughts #reflections #socialnetwork #instagram
This goes out to some peeps I really miss. And in general a message for our society who is so busy with phones these days and forget that face to face will be never replaced with a phone. It's real connection that we need 💛 . . . . #friends #bff #touchingbase #fun #laughs #talks #nobullshit #keepingitreal #visiting #connection #justhangingout #grateful #normalizebreastfeeding #bosomnectar #motherhood #womanhood #blessed #health #family #love #music #selfcare #earthmama #naturebaby #consciousparenting #diaperfree #bornathome #freebirth #childhoodunplugged #nurturing

WEIGHT LOSS VS FAT LOSS People seem to use both terms interchangeably these days that it gets confusing. - Let’s start by defining the differences between weight loss & fat loss and why it's important to make these distinctions.... - ✅ WEIGHT LOSS = You want to lower your body-weight, the sum weight of your bones, muscles, organs, body fat...etc. - ✅FAT LOSS = You want to lower your body fat, the amount of fat your body carries. - When people talk about losing weight, more often than not what they really mean is that they want to lose body-fat. - 🔵 STOP OBSESSING OVER SCALE WEIGHT! There is nothing inherently wrong with weighing yourself, but it’s doesn’t really tell you anything about the composition or condition of your body. - Your body-weight can fluctuate daily since it’s influenced by your stomach/bowel/bladder content, water loss/retention, muscle loss/gain, fat loss/gain…etc. You’ll have no idea what’s going on. - Secondly, scale weight is irrelevant in determining how much body fat or muscle mass a person is carrying. Two people with similar height can weigh the same on the scale, but look completely different because one has a lower body fat % than the other. - Lastly, the weight scale can become the worst enemy of some people by misleading them and killing their motivation. 🔵MUSCLE GAIN VS FAT LOSS If you gain muscle and over time reduce your body fat levels via a combination of strength training and eating better - the weight on the scale may not actually change very drastically despite a dramatic change in your shape and condition of your body over time. - 5lbs muscle takes up less space than 5lbs fat. That means you’ll look leaner at the same body-weight. - I would encourage people to stop obsessing so much about weight loss or scale weight and pay more attention to the condition and shape of their body. - "Oh you went to weight watchers and lost 3lbs this week?" STOP and actually think about this for a second! What did you lose? what did that 3lbs come from?

Ihr fragt mich oft, wie ich zu alternativen Heilmethoden stehe. Noch nie war Naturheilkunde und Homöopathie SO beliebt wie heutzutage. Ich bin ehrlich zu euch: Vor genau 7 Jahren habe ich um diese Zeit die Abiturprüfungen absolviert. Damals war meine Einstellung zu Medizin und Ärzten ganz anders. Ich hatte in den vorherigen Jahren so viele negative Erfahrungen gemacht, dass ich frustriert mit der Schulmedizin war. Ich habe damals geglaubt, dass Zucker Krebs macht, oder vielleicht wollte ich daran glauben. Ich wusste immer tief in mir drin, dass es nicht so simpel ist. Aber es wäre SO toll, wenn es so wäre, oder? Wenn man Krankheiten heilen könnte, in dem man alle möglichen grünen Pulver und Globuli schlucken, Energie spendende Armbänder tragen und einen leckeren Tee trinken würde. Wenn es eine Quelle gebe, die einfach alle Krankheiten wegspült, sobald man hineinspringt. 🦄🧚🏻‍♀️Aber das Medizinstudium & noch viel mehr meine Erfahrungen im Krankenhaus haben mich eines Besseren belehrt. Je mehr ich über Physiologie, Biochemie und Pathologie lernte, erkannte ich, dass der menschliche Körper ein unheimlich komplexes System ist. Ein System, das unheimlich schlau ist und sich theoretisch selbst heilen kann - wenn man ihm die Möglichkeit dazu gibt. Wenn die Grenze erreicht ist, dann kommen wir Ärzte ins Spiel - wir bauen wieder auf, was zerstört wurde. Und nein, dann helfen keine zuckerfreien Diäten, Kapseln, die die Aufnahme von essentiellen Makronährstoffen blocken, Basenbäder oder Darmsanierungen - dann muss harter Stuff dran. * Dass man mit der richtigen Ernährung, essentiellen Mikro- und Makronährstoffen und ausreichend Bewegung die Therapie drastisch beeinflussen und Krankheiten bis zu einem gewissen Grad vorbeugen kann - das glaube ich nicht, das weiß ich. Aber ich bin ehrlich zu euch, ich fühle mich immer mehr von den sogenannten Ärzten und dieser Industrie abgestoßen. Denn anstatt den Menschen wirklich zu helfen & behandeln , kommen plötzlich Energie messende Geräte, die mir vorhersagen, ob mein Herz richtig funktioniert (LOL), Gentests, die mir sagen .. siehe Kommentare👇🏻
Hotpot after seeing the book of Mormon with @buswellmusic and his family. The musical was hilarious but also kind of sad, hotpot is amazing can't wait to go back. I met his cousins who are twins... Now I want to have twins - does anyone have any tips on increasing your chances of having twins. This is all hypothetical just for the record
Heute mal kein Beitrag zur Ernährungsumstellung, dafür aber ein anderes, sehr wichtiges Thema. So oft lese und höre ich von Menschen, die sich einreden, dass ihr ausbleibender Fortschritt auf der Waage ja mit Muskelaufbau zu tun hätte. Kleine Info für die Frauen, die so Einiges erklären sollte: Als Frau mit wirklich intensivem, gezieltem Krafttraining (kein Bauch Beine Po Kurs oder Zumba) und einem leichten Kalorienüberschuss baut man im ersten Jahr maximal 5 KG reine Muskelmasse auf, wenn alles perfekt läuft. Im Kaloriendefizit vielleicht sogar weniger als die Hälfte und wenn man mal Phasen hat, in denen man weniger oder leichter trainiert, auch nochmal weniger. Ich glaube mehr muss dazu gar nicht mehr gesagt werden und wenn man das weiß, dann kann man diese Ausrede mit dem Muskelaufbau getrost beiseite legen und dann im Endeffekt das wirkliche Problem lösen, was natürlich Vieles sein kann. Grob gesagt aber: wer über Tage und Wochen kein Körperfett verliert (was uns die Waage leider nicht sagen kann aufgrund von Wassereinlagerungen etc, Maßbänder sind da genauer), der ist nicht im Kaloriendefizit. Oft treten Rechenfehler auf oder auch Fehler beim Kalorien zählen, oder wenn man ein Fitnessarmband trägt, zeigt dieses womöglich auch einen viel zu hohen Verbrauch an.
Aus gegebenem Anlass... 🤧 . ❗DISCLAIMER❗ Ich bin kein Arzt und gebe auch keine Empfehlungen, wie du dich verhalten sollst, wenn du krank wirst. Außer zum Arzt zu gehen. Also, fange ich mal an: . . ➡️ KÖRPERLICHE BETÄTIGUNG . Ich handle in der Regel nach der "Below The Neck"-Regel. Das bedeutet: Bei Symptomen, die oberhalb des Halses liegen (dazu zählt NICHT Fieber!), schränke ich zwar meine sportliche Betätigung ein, verzichte jedoch auf komplette Ruhe. Zum Beispiel gehe ich dann weiterhin gern spazieren, aber auch ins Krafttraining. Kampfsport würde ich allerdings ausfallen lassen. Im Krafttraining mache ich mich locker warm und starte, einem Deload ähnlich, mit 50% Intensität und schaue, wie mein Körper darauf reagiert. Merke ich, dass es mir nicht schlechter, sondern (gefühlt) besser geht, kann es sogar sein, dass ich die Intensität und das Volumen auch auf circa 80% erhöhe. Höchstleistungen werden nicht angepeilt und sind auch nicht zu erwarten. Ich achte außerdem penibel auf die Hygiene. Das hat 2 Gründe: 1. Ich möchte andere nicht anstecken und 2. Das Immunsystem ist eh schon geschwächt. Breiten sich die Symptome auf Körperteile unterhalb des Halses aus (Husten, Druck, Gelenkschmerzen, Fieber) sehe ich zu, dass ich meinem Körper so viel Ruhe gebe, wie ich nur kann! Ich halte mich warm und meide jeden überflüssigen Schritt. Laut Fitbit kam ich am Donnerstag (ich hatte am Vorabend 39 Grad Fieber) auf lediglich 1.500 Schritte. Außerdem mache ich Schlaf zur Priorität. Je mehr, desto besser. .

My Favourite Things at the moment #nobullshit #onlytruth . 1. @chloe Perfume - the best, every time I wear this scent, I get compliments. . 2. @clinique_oz Moisture Surge Mask - literally the simplest moisturising mask I’ve used. Almost down on my 2nd one, and I’ve already have the 3rd I’ve ready to be open. . 3. @danielwellington Watches - no matter how many watches I’ll have, I keep coming back to DW. The ultimate simplicity goes with everything, looks chic and comfortable to wear. . 4. @clinique_oz Even Better Glow Foundation - I’ve tried Clinique foundations before and wasn’t a fan to be honest, but when I got this one, I fell in love. I’m telling you, they really step up their game with this one. The consultant matched my skin shade to a perfection, nice texture, non greasy, gives a tiny bit of glow but not at all overwhelming, so it looks very natural. . 5. @bobbibrownaustralia Concealer - so far the best one I’ve used. The main thing for me it DOESN’T CREASE. It also have a full coverage. . 6. @gigixmaybelline Matte Lipsticks & Lip Pencil - I’ve been bragging about these lipsticks for a while now on my Instagram, so that would be weird if I wouldn’t include them in my favourites. Beautiful formula, gorgeous colours and pretty packaging (or maybe I’m just obsessed with Gigi 😂🙈 you decide) . 7. @neutrogena_au Hydro Boost SPF15 - no matter how many fancy creams I try I keep coming back to this one. It’s affordable, non greasy, has SPF15 and very good moisturiser. . 8. @victoriaemersondesign Wrap Bracelets - among all of my jewellery, these are my favourite. I have so many of them it’s not even funny 🙈 they are simple, goes with any outfit and instantly makes you look cool 😎 . 9. @benefitaustralia They Are Real Mascara - personally, I’m a big fan of silicon brushes, this one separates lushes well, lengthen and makes your lushes look long without looking too heavy on the eyes. . 10. @calvinklein Wallet - it wouldn’t be my favourite list if I wouldn’t include something from my favourite brand CK 😜 I just love the shape, the best shape for the wallet in my opinion and very durable. On the idside, it has a dark silver leather inside to add a bit of fashion
RANGE OF MOTION & MECHANICAL WORK - ✅ This is possibly one of the most important things to understand about resistance training and something that isn't often factored into training programmes.... - ✅ Mechanical work is simply the weight lifted, multiplied by the number of repetitions, multiplied by the distance it is lifted. - ✅ Let’s say a person hypothetically squats 100kg for 6 repetitions and their full range of motion is 24 inches. - ✅ He then decides to let his ego get the better of him and be a dickhead, so piles on another plate each side of the bar, increase the total weight to 140kg and then proceeds to perform quarter squats, cutting his range of motion to 10 inches….we’ve all seen this. - Now let’s compare the actual workload this person would actually be performing..... - Full squats would be – 100 (weight) x 6 (reps) x 24 (distance) = 14400 - Quarter squats would be – 140 (weight) x 6 (reps) x 10 (distance) = 8400 - ✅ So as you can see, even though he has put MORE weight on the bar, the amount of actual mechanical “work” done is substantially less! - This is why you should never sacrifice technique for the sake of adding more weight to the bar. You actually end up doing less work and end up working your ego more than anything - ✅ A person's structure - e.g: height, build, lever length..etc..will also determine how much mechanical work is done on a given exercise and thus each person will have very training tolerances. - ✅ If someone performs 3 sets of 10 with a 100kg, their volume would be 3,000. However, once we factor in the mechanical work done we can see that the actual stress/workload will differ from person to person and therefore the training effect will be very different. This is one of the many reasons why some people recover faster or need more or less volume than others to achieve a training effect. - ▪️ Bottom line - when it comes to range of motion and mechanical work...balls deep is generally best!
"FUNCTIONAL" That word really gets abused a lot in the fitness world because people have come to believe that functional means you do something in the gym that carries over into real life. - However, it's important to remember the context here and understand the difference between practice and training. - ✅PRACTICE is the repeated execution of movements used in the performance of a sport. Think Free throws, ball skills in all ball sports, racquet skills in tennis and badminton, shooting in pistol, rifle, and archery, mat skills and grappling in martial arts, punching in boxing...etc. - ✅TRAINING - on the other hand, is the physical preparation that must be undertaken to make the time spent in practice more productive. Be it strength, endurance or flexibility. - I don't about you, but I can't remember the last time I had to stand on an inflatable raft while pressing something overhead 🙄 - Any movement that gets you stronger in the gym should make you stronger outside of the gym. It doesn't matter if it's barbell, dumbbells, or machines. All can be used to develop strength and muscle and thus provide a better function. - ✅ Over the past 5 or 6 years I keep seeing all this weird stuff in gyms involving bands, bosu balls and god knows what else all under the guise of "functional training"or "sports specific" training. - ✅ You cannot get stronger by doing a bunch of weird esoteric exercises you've created to replicate some kind of movement you're expected to perform in your chosen sport. It doesn't work that way..... - For example - You cannot practice throwing a heavy medicine ball at a wall and pretend it's a rugby ball....you'll throw the heavy ball differently, and thus not be practicing to throw the lighter ball. - Want to "tone" up? Why are you wobbling about on a bosu ball like a circus clown holding a 3kg dumbbell? - Strength training? If you're an average sized guy who is regularly involved in a sport that requires power and strength and can't squat or pull at least 2x bodyweight, you probably don't need to be worrying about doing squats to a box with resistance bands or chains attached because it looks cool, you just need to actually get stronger
