Chest and tris this morning
I was very tired but I pushed through this workout. I’m using the RPstrength template and the scale is definitely moving in the right direction. I’m retaining strength which is a good thing!
Started off with with some weighted dips 3 sets, then dropped the weight and hit some body weight dips to failure.
Heavy incline dumbbell press. First set was 95s. 105s felt ok this morning but they were easier last week. Goal was 6-8 reps. 4 sets
PR on double unders- 54 💪🏽
Woke up, not feelin tip top. Thought I was rollin up. Damn, stash is out. Walked out tha crib and neighbors staring at me. Niggas can't get off me. Always trying to get something. Gotta lock tha door and smile at em. Thinking I don't know I'm just a stepping stool. They'll put they foot on ya neck if you let em get a chance. Nah if you come my way, you won't get no warning shots. Ya life is up to chance, when you not moving right. Gotta try everyday to be a good homie, but do they know it just takes a second for me to get crazy? People forget how you can be, when they get accustomed to the good side of you. But bitch we reciprocating. You do you. Disregarding communication. I just want a fuckin vacation. Feelin like a merry go round, my head's spinnin. But you ain't gonna catch me slippin. Gotta always have ya eye on the game. Otherwise you won't have a name. These chicken head's say everything they can, just ignore em they fans. Who else starting they day off not right? Thinking can this get any less alright? How I'ma pay the bills by tonight? Keep ya head up, don't let em see the pain, pull ya mask up. Now I ain't sayin the struggle is beautiful. But it'll teach ya, so be grateful. Woke up not feelin tip top. Thought I was rollin up. #nowarningshots#rollinup#catchmeifyoucan#slippin#merrygoround#tragic#gottatry#disregard#communication#reciprocate#bitch#youdoyou#chance#keepitmoving#maskup#hideyapain#keepyaheadup#struggle#tiptop#ignorethem#fans#notagoodstart#goodpeople#chickenheads#wantavacation#footonyourneck#name#crazy#lyrics#lookatme
Siempre pienso en la necesidad de que la muerte asistida sea un derecho fundamental para toda persona; mi relación con el suicidio es tan estrecha que más de una vez he detenido a personas a punto de morir, personas que me han buscado por ayuda y otras personas que me han ayudado. Hay días en que yo también quiero acabar todo, pero siempre me detiene algo. No considero adecuado fingir interes en las personas compartiendo líneas de prevención o animandolas fingiendo que estarás ahí en cualquier momento, porque no siempre se esta mentalmente disponible para alguien que este en esa situación. Con el tiempo aprendí que las personas que nos vemos envueltas en esto ya sabiamos que en algún momento pasaría y por eso estamos ahí. Imagino un mundo donde nadie se encuentre con esa necesidad, pero no creo en utopías.
Last week was a big mental struggle for me. I was in a fog and struggled to find motivation and honestly I didn’t get out of it til after my T25 workout yesterday. Now I’m back and ready to dominate this week! If it weren’t for my fit fam I would of let last week win and I woulda paused my fitness journey, but thanks to them, I kept going!! It’s no secret that this month is busy for everyone but I’m determined to stick to my nutrition as well as I can and get my workouts in 💪🏽 who is with me?! Side note, my baby girl will be turning 4 on Sunday and I’m in denial 💕
For anyone who sees this and is struggling with life at the moment. Feel free to talk to me if you could use a good conversation with someone and you feel like no one wants to listen or will understand. I’m here. 🖤
Been a while since I posted a homemade food picture. I’ve noticed when I’m going through times of difficulty or transition, it’s more challenging for me to create in the kitchen. While I miss cooking during these times, I’m grateful that for me my creativity isn’t solely tied to my darknesses but also to my light. Poetry on the other hand...that is expressed through intense extremes: passion, struggle, spiritual heights and deadly falls. I value all of it. But food is my center, my balance, my refuge. Feeling like the version of myself today that is peaceful.
On another note, while I’m not vegan, I do appreciate vegan cuisine. It’s beautiful to share with friends and family in all aspects of food and ethics. Here is the highly under appreciated Tempeh featured in a chunky bolognese. Bon appetit!
There’s a lot of talk about #selfcare lately...
And that’s good — to an extent!
But if you’re using it as an excuse to keep from doing the tough stuff in your life, it may be time to change out of those slippers and put on your butt-kicking boots, stilettos, or running shoes.
Naps are great... unless you’re sleeping your day away to avoid a tough conversation with your spouse.
A piece of chocolate is wonderful... unless you’re making it the mainstay of your dinner.
Staying in your pjs all day can be a wonderful gift... unless you’re scared to try on pants that actually button and zip.
Sometimes the most loving thing you can do for yourself is making yourself do the hard stuff.
There is a season for everything (Ecc. 3:1). Enjoy your downtime, then get back at it!
Hey guys 😉
Despite your challenges and struggles, I do believe there is always something we can learn. It’s all about perspective.....a bad situation, or just a bad day, does not define YOU. You can however, learn from it. *****************************************************
Perfect lives aren’t real, there will be trying times in all of us, just different days, different events, etc. *****************************************************

For my dear friends and follower struggling with Depression, anxiety, sadness, or any kind of mental health issue that makes you feel alone and heavy. You are not alone. There are many of us who care but we don’t know how to reach out to you.
I pray to the Almighty that He Ar-Rahman Ar-Raheem (the intensely Merciful, the continuously Merciful) sends people and angels to surround you...and me...with love, care and assistance in every moment of your life. Aameen.

BEFORE AND AFTER :For any of you that know me know that I have a lot of difficulty with my #weight, my #health, and and my overall mental well being. I #struggle like a lot of women in the world with #bodydysmorphia and it has caused me to drastically yo-yo in my weight over the years and caused a strain of some of the relationships I have with those around me. So this year I am putting serious work into myself and my life. These before and after pics are taken just 1.5 months apart and I feel like I have put in a lot of hard work. I put on a lot of “happy” weight and honestly I wasn’t all that happy. Please remember that you should never strive for a beach bod or the model bod or the media bod thrive for a better you bod!!!! ✌🏽❤️🙂

Its 20.17 here btw! But im pretty sure its morning somewhere in the world right now
Which brings me to my organic tattoos located on my stomach, feel free to zoom in and take a look - Stretch marks, every inch of them are fabolous and loved by me and hubby, they are lines of poetry telling a personal story, of me, my struggles, battles and joys, they are a badge of achievements. Would I feel any prettier without them, nope, no way, not in a million
Dilusional body images on social media makes us forget that stretch marks, cellulite and some stomach fat is natural. We forget that we are born human and physically can't be perfect. We forget that God doesn't make us out of plastic, fillers and silicone, we forget to be flawed
