Today I went to one of my usual local goodlife gym. We were having a fun time deadlifting with the hex bar, the gym pretty quiet when a PT walks past and tells us (not particularly friendly either) to put our shoes on. I have always trained in socks for deadlifts/squats and legpress. I get better numbers & its better for your form. Ive been with goodlife for a year and have trained in just my socks infront of trainers multiple times. Not once have I ever been told to put shoes on. Im annoyed. I've been debating about changing gyms seeing as theres only one reasonably close with a lifting platform (no mirror tho) and the others i have to make do and dismantle a squat rack to deadlift. Ive trained for probably 4 years lifting with just socks and Im not about to stop now. #stopsockshame #weightlifting #gym #training #grrrlarmy #grrrl #deadlift #goodlife #iron #goodlifepayneham #chicksthatlift #chickswholift #squat #legpress #heavylifting #mumsthatlift #mummotivation #fitmum #fitfam

For some reason This made my day. I’ve been pretty hard on myself with the extra weight I put back on in the last few months and was stuck in a downhill battle but seeing photos of myself sometimes is what makes me see the good and helps me realize how far I have come and helps me see the weight doesn’t matter, if you want it back off you can and will do it but most importantly, know that you’re Fierce AF and only person that can stop you is You! Move forward and appreciate the moment for what it often is... an experience and a lesson. Learn from it and make the best of ever moment you encounter along the way. Let’s do This!!! . . . #fierce #training #grrrlarmy #timetoadult #nomoreeatinglikeanasshole #fitness #workout #bulk #beastmode #fit #gymlife #gymrat #diet #eatclean #physique #bodybuilding #flex #exercise #nevergiveup #grind #fitfam #fitnessjourney #gymtime #fitnessmotivation #bodypositive #grrrl #girlswholift #girlswithtattoos #girlswithmuscle
"Starved like a vampire, chasing a vein. Cruel disposition, sickness I crave"- @parkwaydriveofficial ▪️ I've recently learnt to embrace my darker side, my savage side- because that is a part of me. Too not just tolerate, but to love and accept all parts of myself has been one of the most liberating lessons I have learnt. This side lights a fire, it incenses hunger and while it sometimes still scares the hell out of me...it's one of the most powerful forces inside of me and without it the things I want to achieve won't be possible. Time to take my whole self on this journey. ▪️ 📸: @bridge_raftery #GL18 #GL19 . . . . #grrrlarmy #teamlycan #thelivefreemovement #savage #vampire #parkwaydrive #metal #mindset #lifestyle #model #photography #blackandwhite #heart #soul #passion #mma #artist #darkside #animal #thick #sensual #mohawk #lifestyle #violence #art #lasvegas

I am in competition with no one. I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone.

Got it done ✅ On Wednesday I combined the last two days of the @penandpaperstrengthapp Meat Wagon program - squats and sumo. Worked up to three singles at 255. A little PR and a nice way to finish. Also, I don’t know wtf I did with my arms on setup - interpretive sumo, maybe?
Week 1 day 2 Trying to focus on sitting down in my squats and not back, some reps looked good today but some definitely didn’t 🤷🏻‍♀️ Squats 3x8 75% 150 lbs AMRAP 77.5% 155 lbs +8 Bench 3x8 75% 85 lbs AMRAP 77.5% 90 lbs +8 . . . #squats #skwaats #benchpress #bench #howmuchyabench #povertybench  #powerlifting #grrrlarmy #girlswhopowerlift #gwpl #thisisfemalepowerlifting #powerliftingwomen #plw #girlswholift #upliftandliftheavy #usapl #usapowerlifting #rpnutrition #sbd #romaleos3 #fleoshorts #antrenman #spor #egzersiz

When you’ve reached peak capacity of snatches & snatch complexes & you’re sore & tired & you just don’t want to move ever again 😂😂🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️😒😒😭😭. And it’s apparently #nationalselfieday , which I think is like every day haha but anyways. Here’s my sweaty & oily face 😁😁😜😜. But before I go I’ll appreciate this muscle development. I’d apologize for this rather crazy post that’s all over the place but since that’s exactly how i am in real life i won’t 😂😂😂 #keepinit 💯.

Last night I tried Muay Thai martial arts, back again after 6 months and DAMN am I so much fitter and stronger now! Even my instructor commented on how much more endurance and stanima I have compared to my first session. Its amazing how much can change in 6 months when you don't realise! My body is sore and bruised today but I'm not in a full fibro flare so I'm feeling super positive!

Started my morning off right....with a little yoga flow💜💪🏼💜
Not what I wanted today, all my warm-ups felt like crap and this 405 felt a lot worse than it looks. One month left until the meet and I need to get it together 😂 #ConquerTheWeights #USPAPower #TrainUntamed #4WeeksOut
I know you feel anxious, but you forgot the part where you’re a badass. 😈💃🏼🦄
Clearly a big physical change in the past two years, but what I'm really proud of is the mental change. I've done a lot of self work; reduced migraines, brought myself out of a depression, got my diet right, started a new job, started powerlifting competitively, and started enjoying life . I feel like a new, better version of myself. It hasn't all been easy though. At one point I was working 3 jobs, training 3 hours a day in the gym and just grinding. But hey! The important thing is I'm here, I'm doing it! Feeling good and loving life right now! 🤙🏼
Happy #worldgiraffeday AND #throwbackthursday ! Wish I could say I had the relationship it appears I did with this long neck but ours was a brief romance. One of my favorite people on planet earth works closely with these amazing animals every day and one of the things I love most about that is seeing all the work she does not only for the animals in her care but educating people about the #silentextinction of #giraffe in Africa. That’s right, giraffe are now a vulnerable status on the endangered species list. Rapid loss of their habitat and increased poaching (often times for JUST THEIR TAILS), the tallest animals on earth are quickly disappearing. You can help by staying informed and donating to organizations such as the @giraffe_conservation and other giraffe-specific conservation and research organizations. Thanks for reading and save the giraffes! 🦒🦒🦒 . #giveashitaboutnature #giraffelove #longneck #zookeeper #conservation #zoosareawesome #zoosforconservation #powerliftingwomen #strongwomen #endangeredspecies #vulnerablespecies #wildlifeconservation #grrrlarmy #powerlifter #throwback
Ain’t no shame in being proud of yourself. Today I hit the gym, even though I didn’t feel like it. I had a quick pep talk with myself about my body. I am capable. I am strong. Even though I am not where I want to be. I am lucky to be able to go to the gym and lift weights. So today I increased every weight I was doing. No excuses. Got out of my head and lifted. Proud of myself. #grrrlarmy #grrrl #makeaway #brickbybrick #teamboss #iam1stphorm #1stphorm #gym #goldsgym #motivation #dedication #determination #survival #fitness #goals #weightloss #weightlifting #neversettle #duespaid
It’s frickin cold ❄️
Day 3 of voting for Ms Health and Fitness and a full body workout in the books. Texas Method was not working for me at the moment. It did highlight some of my weaknesses though. I spent Tuesday afternoon revamping my plan. My deadlift does not progress if I'm only training it once per week. And I need a higher volume bench day along with 5x3 in order to get meaningful progress there. I'm tired of having #povertybench So we will see how this goes! It's gains season, baby. #gains #getbigordietrying #figure #powerbuilder #pixie #fluffyabs #chestpump #delts #strongissexy #offseason #liftheavy #booty 🍑 #build #takeupspace #strong #strongnotskinny #lift #flexibledieting #powerful #mshealthandfitness #selfieday #grrrlarmy #americanmuscle #ironmaiden #underarmour #soffe #silkies
Every image we consume. TV. Posters. Instagram. Even the brands you buy from every day.... Are directly and subliminally reinforcing one body type. And that there is something wrong with you and something less valuable about you if you don't conform to that shape. There's nothing wrong with that body type. But we just aren't all designed to look the same. There isn't just one body type. There are about 3.5bn body types. And we should glorify that. And celebrate our beautiful, glorious diversity. #grrrlarmy #effyourbeautystandards #effyourbodystandards #fuckyourbodystandards #fuckyourbeautystandards .

I couldn’t have more fun with my first time doing deficit Romanian deadlifts than with @the_marine_deadlifter 😆❤️ Sound ⬆️ First time I’ve ever worn these shorts in public (had them for probably almost 2 years) 😮 wasn’t really comfortable enough beforehand to wear them since they were on the smaller size 😬 Check out @theliftbx new crop top from the June box 😁👍🏽 #grrrlarmy #hybridpowerlifting #grrrl #hybridathlete #feedmefightme @feedmefightme #donutshorts #donutsanddeadlifts #fitcouples #transformationthursday #hammies #legs #bootyshortsbabe #training #weighttraining #powerlifting #powerbuilding #theliftbox #romaniandeadlift #deadlifts #neversettle #GFOD #drinkinbros #sugarray
I forgot to record my bench so here's a picture of a happy #CobeMonster instead. Moved the order of weeks around this time so I'm on 5s. Last time at this weight I didn't write down how many I got, so either I got the 5 or I failed 🤷🏼 but today, what really matters, is I got a bonus rep on the last set giving me 6 at 192.2. Which is more frustrating that I didn't record, I was focused, form was in place, etc and they were 6 good reps. #powerlifting #powerlifter #bench #benchpress #gwpl #girlswhopowerlift #powerliftingwomen #juststrong #upliftandliftheavy #bgb #biggirlbarbell #roadto225bench #iwant2plates #neverstrongenough #TeamRWB #wedontjustrun #lifteverything #irontherapy #grrrl #grrrlarmy #pugs #puglife #pugsnotdrugs #pugsofinstagram
#tbt to my first #spartansuper this day in 2015. . . This made me think about how sometimes what you see as a negative situation is actually positive - in 2014 i moved to #rhodeisland for #gradschool and was having a really rough time. Discovering and training at @unleashedusa and trying to be a competitive #ocrathlete helped with my #mentalhealth and #eatingdisorder struggles significantly, allowed me to meet one of my best friends @k10mannn 😍👌 and introduced me to other awesome friends like @z_champ401 and @angela_gargano who would inspire me to do more with fitness and attempt this #ninjawarrior life (even though i didn’t really start until jan 2017 at @real_life_ninja_academy_ct ). Even though i was in a rough place at the time, i’m happy i put myself out of my comfort zone and finished grad school. Who knows if i would have become who i am today if i hadn’t moved to rhode island? Similarly, quitting #ocr Because of my back issues was devastating to me, but allowed me to completely refocus my energy into training for #anw .. And even though i have a long way to go, i love tracking my progress and seeing myself overcome fears daily. . So now i always try to remember that when it feels like things aren’t working out, the universe may be making space for better things 😉👌 . . . . . . #americanninjawarrior #positivevibes #grrrlarmy #notstrongforagirljuststrong @bejuststrong @officialsyntrax #changeyourmindchangeyourlife #training #athlete #mud #mudrun #lifechanges #realtalk

Sometimes you gotta put that doubt in the trash can! Worked my way up to 285lbs on sumo for 2 with alternating conventional pulls(had to make sure I haven't lost some strength) Haven't had a heavy pull session in 6 weeks. Not gonna lie that 285 sumo was hella heavy, I wanted 2 I got 2. Then pulled 3 conventional. All of this was after @kortney_olson Leg Day Program 😂😂😂😳😳😳 I'm so ready to get back to heavy lifting. @shiannmar #grrrlarmy #contouredandcalloused #fbombsandpeacesigns #powerliftingwomen #ironcrosspowerlifting #noceaseforthebeast #poweruppoptarts #poptotsnsquats #grrrl #fitover40 #girlswholift #booty #deadlift #notyourcompetition #girlswhopowerlift #strongmom #momstrong #butfuckit #fuckeryabound #fuckshitup
Nothing exciting happened today in training... it was one of those days where I really had no desire to do any of it, but did it anyway. Here’s an ugly heavy set of 5 front squats at 225# which happens to be a PR and some 3x3 at 80%. Did a bunch of other accessories after, which took entirely too long, as I had to repeatedly talk myself into finishing, but I did. #oneofthosedays #doitanyway #getstronger #workharder #comingforitall #always •••••••******••••••******••••••*******••••••• @muscleandmirth liftlikemommy
Today has been incredibly rough for me. However I got my two workouts in and was browsing through pictures. I take a picture every day at the gym. Because hey never lie. I cannot believe how much has changed over the past couple of years. This is amazing. I’ve put in so much blood sweat and tears into this process. And it’s not just a physical change. It’s a mental one too. I’ve gone through hell the past year. I’ve battled anxiety, disordered thinking, hating my body, sadness, grief, and heart break. There were so many times I wanted to give up. So many times my heart just wasn’t in it. There were so many times I was told growing up that my size and gender made me inferior. THATS FREAKING #bullshit However I now have a guardian hummingbird watching over me. And for you Momma, I will never quit. #strongereveryday #tbt #fitspo #fattofit #journey #strongwomen #biggirlsarebeautiful #babypowerlifter #goaldigger #grrrlarmy #neverquit #loveyourself #sizedoesntmatter #fuckyourscale #iwantadonut #beautiful #beast

I want to do a #throwbackthursday to show how far I’ve come since January! It has been a lot of hard work and dedication but worth all the blood sweat and tears!! I can’t thank my amazing coach and friend @makineti_aka_kui enough for sticking with me even on days where I’ve literally yelled at her that I can’t do what she tells me to do!! #kuisquad #gainz #grrrlarmy #killinit #strongwomen #powerlifting #stillgoing
