Congratulations to Stephanie @bgdawgpdx for competing in her first USAPL meet last weekend! These photos are brilliant - as is that shiny piece of metal she’s holding
Great job Stephanie! Thanks for sharing these moments with us!
“Pics from my first USAPL @usapowerlifting meet this weekend! My one regret is that I didnt ask anyone to record my lifts, but I'm grateful that our photographer @hattiewatson captured a few shots!
What an amazing event and a badass group of exhibitors! It was a well run event put on by @ironsidetraining. A big thanks to the judges, my coach @pacmanfit , and all the lifters who cheered for each other and epitomized the meaning community and teamwork.
Now...begins the training for 2018 National qualifiers!!
I guess my body needed me to eat until I was in physical pain yesterday I went to bed bloated and full, woke up here at the same weight I was yesterday before eating like an ass hole.
Proof that one day of eating like an unsupervised child at a birthday party isn’t that serious. Although fun, I’m happy to be back on track today. #rpstrength
Good morning!! How did you do yesterday, my American gals?
If you overdid it, you're not alone! Don't feel guilty or beat yourself up, but I do want to help you get back on track! If we don't get on track ASAP, then we'll continue these bad eating patterns through the rest of the year and end up super disappointed when January comes around.
️ Get back to your normal eating schedule- that means breakfast, lunch, dinner, your normal snacks, everything! Don't think you need to skip meals to get back on track- that's actually worse for you.
️ Reconfigure your portions to more normal sizes. You may have eaten above what you normally would, so it's important to get back to normal sizes.
️ Get more potassium because it helps nerves and muscles function properly as well as regulating your blood pressure and pH levels. It also helps you debloat and move sodium out of your body.
️ Drink water only and more of it! Water supports a healthy metabolism as well as curbs hungry. It will also flush out toxins and extra sodium from your feast.
️ Pay attention to your body and eat slowly. Stop when you feel full even if you haven't finished your meal. If you eat more slowly, you may eat less and you'll definitely feel more satisfied.
️ Up your activity. It may be tough to get your sweat on today, but it's extra important! When you've eaten more starch than usual, your body stores a carb called glycogen and the best to way feel lighter is to get the heart rate up and torch these carbs.
