One of the biggest strengths given to you by bodybuilding is even when you have one of the worst days of the year you can find some good in it, you can achieve something , did a 565lb deadlift today closet I’ve ever come to 6 plates which is my goal. Bodybuilding helps you find that diamond in the rough and helps you put your rage into something when times are tough. Here’s to the deadlift.

I sound ridiculous 😂 Gandhi said it himself “It is health that is real wealth & not pieces of gold & silver.” Winston Churchill was quoted saying “Healthy citizens are the greatest asset any country can have.” If all of this is true then why do we have so many people who don’t take care of themselves? I think it comes down to two things. Lack of confidence/discipline. & lack of knowledge. That’s why I started this page. To instill confidence by bridging motivation, personal development & body transformation. Because building a great body and feeling good is really f’n simple when you know what to do.

Why do I care about my health during the holidays? Isn’t this the time of year where you can slack off and just do whatever you want? •
For me, NO. Last December I was at the heaviest weight I had ever been in my entire life. I was uncomfortable in every way. I was so insecure. I was FED UP with feeling the way I did, but I had that same “it’s the holidays, it doesn’t matter” mindset. I probably gained an additional 10 pounds from October-December. I don’t want to do that again this year. •
But this definitely doesn’t mean I’m giving up my pumpkin pie, hot chocolate, or stuffing (thanks cheat meal)! I still have the ability to enjoy holiday treats and not miss out because of the flexibility of the plan I’m currently on. Reaching your goals doesn’t mean that you have to give up everything you love about Thanksgiving and Christmas. •
This is such a special time of year and my mindset compared to last year is so much better. I’m going to be able to show up more for my family, friends, and boyfriend for the holidays and I have never been more excited to recommit to my fitness journey. Who’s with me?!

Dont let your weakness stop you from your win. I did a total of 40 deadlifts with 155lbs tonight after a brutal shoulder workout with my work buddy. I wanted to go home but I didnt. I went to crossfit and did the damn thing.

I typically use spreadsheets to track my workout routines but I REALLY loved this fitness log when I came across it so I’ve been using this recently. I tweak my routines pretty frequently. Sometimes my muscles don’t recover as quickly as I anticipate so I’ll have to switch my days up in order to give those muscles the appropriate time before lifting more. My spreadsheets at set up for specific days and routines (I pre plan my routines and switch them up every couple weeks). I like the idea of the basics and doing everything on pen and paper. I feel like it gives me an opportunity to be more flexible with my routines with less confusion. It can be a pain in the ass to set up new spreadsheets JUST to make a few adjustments less confusing, I’ve tried to do it that way but it’s more hassle than what it’s worth. I love the way these pages are set up which are very similar to my spreadsheets it even has a section to track your cardio!! There a few pages in there to track and write down your measurement progression. If anyone knows me they know that I can obsess over things. In the past I’ve obsessed over what the number on the scale is and even if you’re actually losing weight it can put you in a bad place mentally, an obsessive place (for me anyway) and it’s just not healthy. My problem I face is the scale doesn’t always reflect what’s going on... Muscle weighs more than fat, most of us know that. So while I am losing weight and getting a better shape and definition to my body the scale doesn’t always reflect that, so taking measurements and progress photos helps WAY more than getting on a scale which can and IS a bit defeating for me. I recommend to anyone wanting to get serious in the gym to track everything I feel like it gets your mind into a good place and keeps you motivated when you see your progression in weights and your progression in your measurements. Tracking both your fitness routine AND diet gives you a little bit of internal accountability which will help keep you motivated.

Be open to the power of healing, arrive with the desire to be truthful, vulnerable and accepting of the journey.
People get scared of their healing journey, scared of what might come up! For sure it's no walk in the park, but neither was the walk that bought you to the place of living a life enveloped in trauma injury.
Indeed to let go you will process your experiences and they will travel through and release from the physical self. But you dont need to relive them all and as life moments connect you will shed many layers at one time.
Healing is a commitment to self, comitting to a better life. You can not do it alone, another person, another nervous system another healed person is required to assist your process.
The space is what we offer, the skill set to to help you is what we have gained and a person who's already been through it is who can assist you. Step forward into a better life.
Appointments for peiec can be done innperson and online. Gift yourself your own healing.

Okay so I was genuinely in shock when I came across this photo of me (and others) on an old phone 😭
There wasn't ANYTHING wrong with my body then at all. The only thing that was wrong was how I felt. I didn't feel comfortable in my own skin. I never felt good enough. 🤦🏽♀️
I used to spend hours on cardio machines. I used to force myself to go on regular runs, which I hated. I used to think about how many calories I was burning and in my head I would relate this directly to the food I was eating i.e. if I'd burned 100 calories, I'd let myself off for eating that 100 calorie biscuit. And really I think this is a mindset that is not uncommon for people to experience. 😞
In my head, I wanted to be as small as possible and this mindset was SO self destructing.
Weightlifting has truly made me the happiest I have ever been in my own body. Dedicating myself to becoming stronger and working hard in the gym regularly makes me feel so satisfied and HAPPY! 😋I didn't realise the extent of the physical differences that have come from it until looking back at these old photos.
I don't track calories now, I eat purely intuitively and hardly even THINK about calories, other than knowing I'm eating a good amount. I'll have regular "treats" (I love a cookie 🤷🏽♀️) without feeling guilty at all. I'll go into each day excited to become a stronger version of myself.
🌟Please remember, we all start somewhere!!! 🌈 let yourself be a beginner, don't stress too much and enjoy the process 🌟
It isn't just luck, it isn't just genetics. It's hard work, consistency and dedication. If you want it enough and dedicate yourself to it, you will get there!!
Fuel your body well and be dedicated to your training ☺️
