6617273965 # throwbackthursday Real post: I'm honest about my own journey and hope this encourages other people to work for what they want and improve their own physiques. I was watching a video (pic on left, sorry for quality as it's a video shot) from 2015 and caught a glimpse of me and actually couldn't believe what I saw! It took some guts to post this but I think these real honest posts are important. Let's talk 'skinny fat'..... After losing a lot weight, mainly running (I hadn't even considered weights till the last leg of my journey unfortunately, and didn't know the benefits of it thus making my journey harder 🙇♀) I didn't train glutes for a long time apart from squats and deadlifts, I didn't know any different back then. I was left with loose skin, what is known as 'skinny fat'. For the last 2 years I have learned and implemented so many different exercises and worked hard in this area and I'm really pleased with the changes. Still work to do but seeing those changes has made me more determined to push on and improve, taking my knowledge with me and passing it on to my own Personal Training clients. I hope this post was worth taking that deep breath before posting and helps to encourage others. Remember don't ignore those parts of your body that are covered up during your workout. 🍑 I know I'm standing in a pose position on the right and obviously not in the left picture, but let's face it no amount of standing correctly was going to change that! There are so many filters on social media these days that you shouldn't be mislead by. Don't expect others to do what you aren't prepared to do yourself. Keep it real, share your knowledge and experiences. Make their journey easier. These first hand experiences are more valuable than any of my qualifications, and I hope that they do help others out there still working on improving themselves.😊💜💛💜 6787603863 # goals 5203290951 # keepimproving 615-500-7880 # inspire 415-941-8205 # learn 901-254-7396 # personaltrainer 503-486-7868 # journey 7173475596 # girlswholift 9202642573 # girlswithmuscle
Every no the universe gives you is it's way way of saying "Next Opportunity", you can't dwell on the things or people you wished were yours because nothing that is ever meant to be yours will ever pass you by. Some days you just need to keep showing up even though you'd just prefer to give up. There's days you'll question everything and wonder why and it'll seem like no matter how hard you try there's just no reason. Nothing happens by accident and nothing is a coincidence, everything happens exactly the way it is supposed to. Sometimes doing the right thing is going to be the hardest thing in the world but the universe will always give you back the exact energy you give out. Be honest, say exactly what you're thinking, be kind to people, you'll be surprised just how many people will pop up when you need it without having to say a word to anyone. While it seems I'm pretty open about my life on insty, truth is - I'm absolutely not and I'm actually a very private person about most things in my life and will rarely open up to anyone. This weeks been a really tough one for various reasons but I'm so grateful for everything I have and instead of getting upset about things I just kept reminding myself of the things I'm so thankful for and this afternoon an amazing opportunity has landed at my feet. Nothing excites me more than new beginnings 🙌🏽❤️
Same girl- same pose- different mindset🙆🏼 •Bild 1, ca ett år sedan: mycket cardio och styrketräning, mycket mat men till stor del bestod intaget av sämre alternativ och framförallt mycket sött. Sockerberoendet var nog ett faktum... •Bild 2, ca 6 månader sedan: 5 dagar efter sista tävlingen, 24 veckors diet och -12 kg. Fick bukt på sockersuget men kroppen var med all rätt ganska sliten, och framförallt tycker jag det var svårt att avgöra när man var hungrig eller bara sugen... •Bild 3, Idag: Balans! Käkar bra mat på vardagarna av både ekonomiska och hälsomässiga skäl, lyxar till det på helgerna🍔🍫🍷 och njuter av livet. Äter kolhydrater till alla mina mål utan kvällsmålet (var inte rädda för carbsen tjejer) och äter mycket, kvalitativ mat. Gällande träningen är tänket kvalitet över kvantitet med 1-2 vilodagar/veckan (total vila) och relativt restriktivt med cardion, max 4 ggr/veckan, 20-40 min (hjärtat behöver dock sin träning och jag behöver min kondition som spinninginstruktör 😅). Summan av kardemumman, känner att jag lever en livsstil jag vill leva för att jag mår bra av det. Friheten att varken vara bunden till sockerfällan eller diettänket är väldigt skönt. Träningen är det jag visar upp här, men är egentligen inte proportionerligt till hur min vardag faktiskt ser ut. En liten påminnelse bara då jag vet att en del tror att jag bara tränar dagarna i ända haha 😘 347-551-6177 # distansochbalans
