SPREADING BODY POSITIVITY LIKE PEANUT BUTTTERRR🥜or should I say PITAHH BUTTAAA 😝.
LISTEN 🗣it’s okay to live a little 🍦as a bodybuilder everything is timed, counted and measured no room for error! But I’m human, I naturally don’t have a fast metabolism & my weight fluctuates. Ive Accomplished my show goals this year (1st🥇3x) & soon right after my birthday rolled around, work hours got longer, summer got litter what can I say life caught up to me for once and instead of beating myself up to keep this “perfect body”
I decided my happiness was more important... here’s to a pressure free summer! I love my body at all stages but it’s time to get back in shape, not skinny but in shape .. there’s a difference got a lot of things happening come fall and I need my body in turbo mode .. time to switch back gears 😈 #30lbdifference#fitthick#mevsme#offseasonbody#beforeandafter#selfacceptance#thickerthanasnicker
I think that it might be time to push myself again one last time before the wedding! I haven’t gained any weight back... BUT I do like to challenge myself. You never ever see me promote anything in regard to weight loss on here... but @30daytransformationteam is the truth. I would’ve never done pageantry or love myself the amount that I do now without them. What changes and transformations can be made this year? 😈

Fear. Anxiety. Hope. Faith. Excitement. Commitment.
Those are some of the emotions I feel tonight. I took some “before” pictures and let’s just say that I don’t believe what the mirror is reflecting. How did I get here? Why? Am I truly happy? Healthy? Am I who I aspire to be?
This is my biggest commitment to myself. This is me helping and guiding myself towards my true potential. This is my HEALTHY NARRATIVE. 🦋
Dat leg work 🏋🏼♀️👀 These are a few of my go-to leg exercises guaranteed to get you sore. I do these when I really want to put in work. I had to record myself so the quality is trash 🤷🏼♀️ but it’s been a while. •

•Toe Taps - 20 reps each side x’s 3•

•Sumo Squats •
•Bent Knee Deadlifts •
•Romanian Deadlifts •
• Kneeling Squats •
• Banded Squats with Pulse •
I mean... pictures don’t lie. Lol 💔 .
I was never “flat” back there and have always had a decent amount of clay to mold... but hard work definitely shows and I’d always choose more curves and muscle back there ♥️.
... aaand that’s why I have a glute obsession lol. It’s my favorite muscle to train... I appreciate it on a woman, on my husband haha, on myself... it’s the one thing women can grow and develop without having to pay for 😎... I weirdly love it all 🍑. #favoritemuscle
Let’s talk about POWER CLEANS ⚡️
My absolute FAVE. I did these with a double pulse squat at the bottom. .
Although I haven’t been Olympic lifting lately, I’m trying to get back into it and incorporate it into my daily workouts. .
Try these out! Reallllyyyyy pay attention to FORM! Master the form first at a low weight, then move up in weight. .
These are a great lift that forces you to use almost your entire body. Keep your core right & go BELOW parallel on the bottom!
💡Ways to deal with hunger when losing weight (fat) 🤯🍪🍔🍦
Now that my calories are coming down and I’m feeling a bit peckish 🙈, I thought I’d bring you my favourite hunger squashing tips 😛🍽 _____________________________________ 💦WATER: It is possible to overdo it and be over-hydrated, but most of us aren’t getting enough ! Herbal teas and flavoured BCAAs are another great way to make it more palatable if you’re struggling. On another note, sparkling water, though some aren’t a fan, can help you feel more statisfied and stave off hunger (if you don’t mind the bubbles in your system). Don’t forget to load up on h2o packed veggies and fruits 🍓🥒🥗
😴MORE SLEEP: Goes without saying, sleep deprivation is a killer (literally!). Most of us have experienced the impacts of lack of sleep at one point or another, and the impacts on our weight loss efforts can be disastrous. Our hunger and fullness cues can go out the window as ghrelin (the one telling you to eat) increases and leptin (the one saying PUT THE FORK DOWN) decreases! Not to mention the effects on muscle recovery, stress and the ability to perform at your best.
Go to bed earlier, and you won’t be tempted to eat more. 😋If I have eaten all my meals and it’s still early, I may just call it an early night. Sleep is the time machine to breakfast after all 😉
🏃🏻♀️KEEP BUSY: If you are working on high priority tasks, you have no time to wonder about eating that donut! Even better if you are working on something that makes you inspired, grateful and present; your brain will not be seeking rewards (dopamine fix) in the form of treats as you are in a state of fulfilment. 🙏🏼😌
💃🏻SUPPLEMENTS ( @ehplabs_ausnz OXYSHRED): helps me get the most out of my workout and suppress appetite for a little bit longer, so I don’t turn into a ravenous fiend at home 🦊
