Wow this set moved horribly...wobbly the whole way. Just happy I stabilized by the last rep of this last set.

These were 150lb (68kg) @ 3x3 which is something I've never expect to have under my belt...the most I've ever pushed is ~154lb (70kg) at a very very difficult 2x3. I seem to be walking out of my workouts generally really happy lately.
I have tons of pics of me as a kid...well, my mom does and I just go over and “steal borrow” them. Haha! #SharingSaturday is me and family in Cape Hatteras, NC on summer vacay. Notice how I’ve been doing extra for a very long time! Haha! My #Just48 is in the way! Creating and sharing...🎈🎈🎈
P.S.: I love how my dad is not even looking...but reading the newspaper. And I told you I stuck under my mom’s butt as a kid. I’m right next to her in this pic! Haha! In most, I always am. ❤️❤️❤️ #siblings cousins #aunts uncles
Got a new iPhone and when I started taking selfies I had an existential crisis bc the angles and lighting that worked for me before weren’t working with the new camera so it’s taken about a week to relearn how to look like a solid 6 in photos. I can finally sleep at night 🙏🏻
Growth has taken place. Things in life change and we have to adapt. I’m constantly learning. Eternal student in this class called life.

I have lost 8.3% (17lbs) of body fat since November 29th! It’s nice to see hard work paying off especially when I am not having to starve myself or eat foods that I don’t want to eat! I am going to do the @22ndstbarbell USPA meet in May at 181lbs, so I can’t quit now! Follow @jdwellness42 for my daily meals and tips!

We all have days or moments that we don’t look or feel our best. Today will not be one of those days because I CHOOSE for it not to be. #njpersonaltrainer
~NEVER GIVE UP~ 🧘🏻♀️ #Meditation#Yoga#YogaLife#Balance#Strength#Alignment🧘🏻♀️ *In 2013 I was in a serious car crash on the highway (head on collision). Doctors thought I was going to be paralyzed. Thank God I wasn’t , but still I had many surgeries I started to give up and drink a lot. I lost my way, losing jobs, going to jail, sad , depressed. But I started going to the gym and really focusing on me and self healing. That meant letting people go who weren’t supportive or didn’t understand my journey. Everyday I struggle and work hard and push myself do things I never thought I could. Point being... NEVER GIVE UP!
I had to repost this. Great information! 🙌🏼
I’m all for a flexible diet and eating less than optimal foods in moderation. But I feel pretty strongly that peanut butter is the perfect food and doesn’t need to be messed with. I’m not telling you that any of these NEED to be avoided. But I do want to dive a bit into the ingredients…
The popular spreadable peanut butters typically contain hydrogenated vegetable oil. Oil is naturally liquid at room temperature, but hydrogenated oil is processed (hydrogen is added) to be solid & spreadable at room temperature. Using this ingredient allows the peanut butter to stay nice and smooth (getting rid of the natural oil separation) and increases the shelf life.
Now let’s look at the reduced-fat peanut butter. That ingredient list is a bit longer. Sugar gets added in the form of corn syrup because when you remove the natural fat from peanut butter, it has to be replaced with something to get the same consistency (hence the higher carbs). There’s also more added hydrogenated vegetable oil along with mono & diglycerides, which are additives that help prevent the oil separation in PB. These get tricky because they are technically also fat, but not required to be included in the nutritional info.
Natural PB can be a better choice than the previous two, but in a lot of cases, they will also contain added palm oil and sugar. Are these things bad? I suppose that depends on who you ask. But in the case of peanut butter, they are totally unnecessary.
That’s why I like to stick to peanut butter that is simply ground up peanuts and maybe some added salt. If I can grind up my own at the store, that’s the BEST.
Added sugar is completely unnecessary as peanut butter has a natural sweetness to it. The oil separation in organic PB can be a pain in the ass, but a good stir is all it takes to have delicious peanut butter with none of the unnecessary ingredients.
I’m not here to tell you what you should and shouldn’t eat, but I want to educate you to be able to make that decision. Eat whichever you like, but I’ll stick to my basic peanut butter!
