There is no secret to this. You show up like it’s any other day and put in the work. My motivation to train hard & stick to my diet isn’t always there. I put my mind & body on auto pilot and stay disciplined b/c you don’t always need motivation to do the right stuff — you just need to do it.
If you’re truly passsionate about what you do, the motivation will return. It may wane at certain times, but it’ll most definitely come back and when it does, you’ll be thankful for all the that time you kept plugging away at your goals.
Does anyone else just wake up angry? When that happens I do a pre-warmup where I just mess around with a beat to release some energy. It works 90% of the time ☺️ Happy Monday... #fitness #dance #workout
Okay so this is an extremely hard picture for me to post and I debated for so long on whether I should show it or not because of how self-conscious I am about it, but I figured I might as well since I will be in an even smaller bikini on stage in 4 months🤷🏻♀️ Speaking of, I am about 18 weeks out from my very first show and have officially started my prep. I look back at the first picture and think about who I was 2 and a half years ago and can’t believe how much progress I’ve made and how much stronger I’ve gotten, not just physically, but mentally, emotionally, etc.. 2 and a half years ago I never would have imagined this life for myself. I hated working out and I hated eating healthy, and had absolutely no idea how to properly care for my body. Being a college athlete, I thought I could just eat whatever I wanted because I was staying active, but I could not have been more wrong!! It’s absolutely crazy how much we can change and learn and grow in just a short amount of time. I seriously did not imagine this life for myself in a million years, but in fitness I have truly found my place and what makes me feel most like myself, which is something I didn’t have 2 and a half years ago.
The next 18 weeks of prep are going to be some of the hardest of my life (friends and family please forgive me if I’m ever hangry and cranky), but I am so motivated and so determined to be the best I can be and love myself and learn more about myself every step of the way. Get ready NPC cause you’re about to be shown what’s up💪🏼💪🏼

Carries are a great exercise for pillar strength (“core” if you will), conditioning, and grip endurance/strength. Lift some heavy shit, set your shoulders and keep your torso upright, and walk! Rinse and repeat.
I like to throw these in at the end of a workout so that my grip isn’t affected in other lifts. But sometimes I like to do it first thing in the morning or before a workout to set my posture off right.
Smoked a 410 lbs squat today for a baby PR. Feeling pretty worn down from this meet prep, but still hitting PRs so I’m pumped to see what I can do at the competition 🧐 S/o to the bros @davedevil56

You can reach your health and fitness goals and still eat the foods you enjoy?! Absolutely!
I have been tracking my macros/flexible dieting for over 3 years now and have a pretty good handle on portion sizes and the amount of carbs, fat and protein in foods.
I fill my meals with nutrient dense foods, however I still eat donuts, ice cream and burgers among other yummy things and still reach my goals.
With that being said, whenever I have friends or family coming to visit (and I'm not in a competition prep), I take time off from tracking. I used to bring my food in a Tupperware to family events, I used to bring a scale to restaurants to weigh out every single thing. But now I listen to my body, eat what I'm craving and just enjoy the time with friends and family. I'm still mindful of what I'm putting into my body but also eating things I don't on a typical day. The past two weeks I ate ice cream every single day. I ate donuts and burgers and treats and ate way more than I usually do.
BALANCE is so important to keep your body and mind happy. Drink lots of water, stay active and you'll be just fine :).

Battle ropes are a great way to improve your power and endurance. They're also a fun way to vary up your cardio routine. 💪🏽
Some battle ropes to finish this mornings great work out! 😜
I was able to talk to a member I normally don't talk to while on the treadmill today, about his health and how far he's come in his fitness journey. I like learning and listening to what people have gone through and the reason why they made the change to get active. Listening is important, learning new things is important, taking time to get to know someone you normally wouldn't talk to is also important. Today I was very social at the gym, I even helped and got to train a little with @avemariapues7
, keep killing those squats!

💥According to several experts, a corrective brace re-trains your body's musculature. Over the course of too many days sitting at a desk or engaged in other activities that train the body to lose upper body muscle tone, our posture detoriates.
💥Our shoulders come forward, and our body loses its proper alignment. The results of poor bearing can range from neck and back pain to poor circulation and decrease in energy 😔
Les traigo las ya conocidísimas "Tiras limpiadoras de poros Tea Tree" de @beauty_formulas.
Son unas tiras que sirven para extraer los puntos negros. Hay que humedecer la zona de la piel donde las vayamos a colocar y yo, después de ponerlas suelo mojarlas también para que se adhieran mejor. Se dejan unos 10-15 minutos (aunque yo las dejo hasta que estén bien secas) y luego las retiro.
Obviamente, estas tiras no te van a quitar todos los puntos negros, pero de todos los productos de este tipo que he utilizado, este es el mejor porque me saca gran cantidad de 💩.
Lo mejor, su precio: 0.83€ en @maquillalia
y en cada cajita vienen 6 tiras.
¿Las han probado? ¿Qué opinan de ellas?😊

É bastante comum, principalmente no caso de iniciantes, uma grande preocupação e enfoque em coisas triviais, que apesar de não deixarem de ser importantes, impactam muito pouco nos resultados que desejam obter.
Um exemplo clássico é a busca incessante do melhor suplemento para perder gordura ou ganhar massa muscular. Suplementos servem para complementar um plano nutricional já adequado às necessidades e especificidade da pessoa. Eles não fazem milagre nem são os principais responsáveis pelos resultados obtidos.
De nada adianta gastar dinheiro com termogênico ultra potente ou algum ergogênico que ajude a ganhar massa muscular, se os fundamentos básicos não estiverem bem estabelecidos e adequados às suas necessidades. Somente quando o balanço calórico e os macronutrientes estiverem devidamente ajustados para seu objetivo é que os suplementos irão ajudar, somando de alguma forma.
E o exemplo mais simples de entender isso é considerar que mesmo utilizando o melhor termogênico que existe, se sua ingestão calórica for maior do que seu gasto, você não irá perder peso. Da mesma forma, se gastar dinheiro com um whey protein de altíssima qualidade mas não adequar seus macronutrientes corretamente (não ingerir por exemplo a quantidade total de proteínas diária necessária) e não gerar um superávit de calorias, você não irá ganhar peso.
Portanto, antes de se preocupar com qual o melhor whey, se vale a pena ou não comprar algum suplemento promissor, certifique-se de que os fundamentos básicos nutricionais (calorias, macro e micronutrientes) estejam adequados às suas necessidades. Dessa forma, você evita frustrações e gastos desnecessários! 👊💪
