This is not the normal #transformation picture, it's not about the typically physical changes happening between these photos, it's more mentally. It's about me finally starting to become more comfortable in my own skin.
- Ever since my #bikinicompetition in May, where I was in the best shape of my life, I've had a hard time seeing myself in the mirror.
The photo on the left is from 2 months ago and the photo on the right is from a couple of weeks ago. Like I said nothing crazy physically but mentally I'm ready to rock ń roll and kick as again, I can't wait to start prep again. And this time I'm going to come out of it a thousand times stronger! ️♀️️♀️
My goal atm is to get to 100kg for deadlifts so I thought it would be fun to look back on this when I get there. I remember when 60kg used to feel heavy and now it’s my warm up weight. Was feeling weak today so didn’t push things cos I’ve been sick.
Conventional Deadlifts 6,4,4,3
Deficit deadlifts 4 x 6
Front squats 12,10,8,8
Hip thrust with pause at top 3 x 8
Plus an ab circuit to finish!
Ps. How cute is my face when I deadlift
Rainbows are a sign of hope, a sign of promise and seeing this full rainbow in the clouds made me smile.
12 And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: 13 I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh. And the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16 When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” 17 God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant that I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.”
Another day in the life of a stay at home mommy. Lately, Nicholas has not napped well because of a nagging cough that is lingering. I was anxiously awaiting nap time to get things done, but this little mister only smiles in my arms and only slept for 30 minutes. . . .I guess the chores will have to wait *don't be anxious momma, be still and slow down* repeat.
I did it!! Better late than ever, I have to remind myself!! Always worth it. . . .
Working out to make me a stronger wife and mom. Working out to give me more energy. Working out to help combat anxiety and mood swings. It's not the cure all but it suuure feels awesome to accomplish! I have learned to look forward to these times to take care of myself and listen to some music to soothe the soul. . . .
This week has been busy with my littles, but I am truly thankful that because I stay home, I get to be here for them when they need me. I am so thankful that because of my job, I am held accountable to taking care of myself as well as helping others do the same for themselves! It's SO easy to slack off on our own well being while caring for our kids, but that doesn't have to be the case when your gym is anywhere you need it to be, like it was for me today and everyday. . .right at home.
