POST COMP FEELS:
Feeling exceptionally relaxed and chilled post comp and really loving how things are at the minute. I feel no stress or pressure with training or to look a certain way. .
I can genuinely say I have no worries about not being stage lean or ripped. Im confident that I can stay in a healthy fuller and stronger shape that Im happy with by training as I like, eating well and having my treats here and there. Im enjoying all the foods I want but tracking macros. A healthy flexible diet with the cheats accounted for. .
Prep is high pressure, its intense, its restricted, its tough. So why stress on off-season?? Im quite content saying bye to my abs but focusing on health, happiness, flexibility, enjoying training but also being consistent making good food choices 90% of the time.
Theres far too many girls stressing on here over post show weight gain. (I feel I've been reading it over and over on my newsfeeds) Dont panic girlos just enjoy training and treats in moderation and remember its not healthy to be stage lean year round. .
P.s this pic was Friday Im currently cuddling my unicorn hot water bottle with all the sniffles Rest and Recovery and back at it tomorrow. Listen to your body!!
Timehop is just reminding me of prep and I'm both repulsed and excited by the prospect of getting leaner again. I gotta say that bulking has been a more complex physical, psychological, and emotional challenge than cutting was. I struggle to eat enough most of the time, and I struggle to feel like anything I'm doing is making a difference. Focusing on strength gains vs aesthetics, finding balance, ENJOYING pushing myself in workouts, & most of all being consistent--that's what it's about. There's about a 5 month and 13 lb difference between these photos--a significant difference in composition not reflected by that weight. There's nothing wrong with the body in either photo. #naturalbodybuilding#nurseswholift#absinhibernation
