@kitchfix you are saving my LIFE right now! 13 hours at work but thankfully I had shrimp arrabbiata with zucchini noodles ready for lunch (27gP/18gC/7gF) and this amazing Mongolian beef and broccoli (35gP/33gC/35gF) pictured here. #Whole30
#whoisshe ? // I don’t want you to comment on my appearance. It’s not about that. It’s how POWERFUL I feel & am. I was losing a battle, I was losing my life. I can sit here and blame everyone else, but I did it to myself. I failed for years. After losing everything I decided I was ready to rewrite my story.
Fitness is my passion & form of recover from more than #bulimia. It started with @bodybuildingcom vids I would try to do @equinox when I couldn’t even do a bicep curl.
It was never my lack of experience at the gym or in business. It was my lack of DETERMINATION & CONFIDENCE(determination to do what we need to be successful)
Anyone can have a nice body. Never in my mind did I ever think I could love myself, let alone have the confidence I do now. Was it hard? Yeah. But it’s been worth every small step, big step, all the steps.
I don’t want to be known for how strong I was.. so I no longer overflow my feed with posts about my past with my eating disorder. I want to be know for how strong I am in making others strong (mentally & physically). I want others to being to understand that they can win in life, inside, outside the gym or anywhere & in anything. I’m doing it & so can’t you Life comes around once & y’all I’m #basically just getting started
Proud of my man Gianni who’s been working with me for about 7 months now. Today were all high water marks on Squat, Deadlift and Bench- which were a culmination of a 7 month build up. Of course at 3 RM levels there was some form compensation and reverting back to his old ways. Extension through the lumbar, knock knee on the right side, and hips popping up a bit on the bench. So what we do at this point? Go back to the high rep work , reinforce the proper foundation , now with more weight and other variables, and next time these 3 RMs should be crushed with even more load and efficiency.
Regardless, for a 19 year old, he’s got tons of promise ahead of himself with 1 RM estimates of : 205lb Bench, 235lb Squat and 275lb Deadlift. #CommitToSomething
Why is it that 92 percent of people who set New Year’s Resolutions never achieve their goals? My thought is that they are genuinely inspired, but their endgame needs work. Inspiration and perspiration are very different cards to play while building a strategic business plan. The wining ticket: Knowing and creating a solid long-term goal is where the hard work really begins.
Just yesterday I was having a conversation with someone about this. It’s rare to see a multitude of black and brown faces in the health fitness industry. Information is information, no matter who it comes from, but we’ve all learnt that representation matters. I wish I could attend this, but my class conflicts with this. It’s free, so if you’re interested in having this conversation, the details are below. Plus my awesome group fitness instructor trainer, @ayoungwayoflife is one of the panelists. #Repost@ayoungwayoflife with @get_repost
From racial disparities in health outcomes to a booming wellness industry that caters almost exclusively to white, wealthy people, wellness should be accessible to everyone but too often isn't. Please join me alongside an amazing panel for @selfmagazine’s first event of the year—a (totally FREE!) evening of guided meditation from MNDFL (@mndflmeditation) and a discussion about self-care and self-advocacy amidst institutional barriers.
