2 of the major movements! Deadlifts and squats!! 🏋️♀️🏋️♀️ We did 7 rounds of 5 squats, 5 deadlifts, 5 sumo squats, 5 sumo deadlifts, and 5 straight leg deadlifts. So yeah it was a great workout!!! My legs are going to be dead tomorrow but over all it was great. Squat weight is 70# and 145# for the deadlifts!!! Here are the first 3. I'll post the next two later on.
I hit 110 for 5 reps today. Very very happy with my progression and how strong I'm getting!! 💥💥 @3xodus24 on the amazing camera skills!!
Had a great day at @sixflagsovergeorgia with my favorite niece!! In 2016 we went for her birthday and I just remember being so sore and out if breath from walking everywhere. Not this time. It wasn't even a challenge. I could have done it 3 more times and not even felt it . This is what a life style change will do!!
I have a fun action packed day planned today with my niece so I got up early and got a great workout in. 6 sets of deadlifts felt great!! I pretty much did every muscle this morning and felt strong af!
Let's talk self care. Of course these two pictures were taken back to back. One is me normal and one is me pushing out. Is it sad to admit that I feel like I look like the right side inside my head? My stomach is my most insecure part of my body because it was the biggest part of me at 260lbs. So of course I want it to look the smallest it can look. At least I am not that 260lb girl anymore and I'm learning to love every thing about me. Talk positive to yourself and slowly but surely life will become nothing but positivity 🔥🔥👙👙🏊♀️🏊♀️
I love working out! There's no better feeling in the world. I go to work and get tired. Go home and push any and all excuses out the window and just go do it. After lifting with dumbbells yesterday, I went to crossfit and did some sumo deadlifts. Who doesn't like deadlifts?!? I'm just sayinnnn. Go kill it today!!! 💪🏽💪🏽 video by @__chelii__ at @independentathletics239
So ya girl ate 2 hamburgers, 2 hotdogs, and 2 pieces of cake yesterday. Did I feel bad? The thought crossed my mind to feel bad but I have accepted the extra 10lbs I've out on. I looked at last years 4th of July pictures vs this one and I do look a tad bit bigger in my stomach area this year. Am I mad? Not really. My goal isn't to JUST loose weight anymore. My goal is to be strong and see muscles. The less I weigh the less fat I have so the more muscles I can see. But it's ok. This is a journey and gaining weight is apart of it. My mental state is getting better. I just have to be consistent with how I feel about myself instead of feeling bad about feeling bloated. Accept it and move on!!
Two days straight at crossfit and boy they havent been easy at all. I've died both days. ☠☠ -- Anywho. I just read the caption of @syd_journey and I am the same way when it comes to body shaming. I've lost 100lb and I look on the mirror and focus on the one thing I hate the most, my stomach. I tell myself I look fat cause that's how I feel. But in all honesty, I dont look fat. It's crazy how I know it but I cant accept the good with it. That's the hard part with this journey, the mental battle. So here is me being nice to me! -- I am a strong independent black woman! Lol JK but I am a strong woman who is beautiful and has a small amount of junk in the trunk that my momma gave me. 😂
So after a weekend of ups and downs I'm back in the gym full time. As you can see, Chest day today. 65# on incline and decline, 95# flat bench. This is just my incline. 💪🏽💪🏽 Anywhoooo I don't know how many of yall watched my story but my car got broken into saturday night. They took a CC and tried to use it but the transactions didnt go though. So I was heart broken that someone violated me and my car because I love that bitch. It took alot to move past that situation and enjoy the birthday party I planned. It was hard but I did it. Try to turn the bad into good and fight the mental battle that holds you back.
Excuse the 4am face 😐😐 I woke up this morning went to take some picture of myself and found myself sucking in as i took them. No maam. You accept yourself as you are and embrace all the bad with the good. So this is me not sucking in. This is me as I am. Change is coming and I can tell. I can't wait to see the small suddle changes come. Don't give up. It works if you keep going!!
I decided to go light weight today to work on form instead of trying to be Ms. Badass. I have so much to learn when it comes to form. All I can do is take it day by day and it will eventually become muscle memory. @lauryncudsnbuns is one of my favorites to watch squat. Her bar does not move to the left or to the right. Just straight up and down. That's how it's done. #goals
What a fabulous weekend. I couldn't of asked for a better one. I spent Saturday hiking with a new friend who is awesome (( @brittbraap )). It was my first time at @sweetwatercreek_statepark. We hiked about 5 miles and enjoyed the beauty of nature. After that I went riding with some old friends I havent seen in ages around Atlanta. It brought back so many great memories. Sunday I rode with some awesome people on my mini bike at a mini track. Check out my story on my other page if you are interested in that (( @ridelikeastar )). I hit a great goal on it that I've been trying to do forever. In the end just a great weekend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is the first time that I've been able to intertwine my fitness life and bike life together in perfect harmony. This is the first time I've wore a crop top in public and felt comfortable. This is the first time that I am accepting myself for how I look without wanting more because I know more is coming slowly but surely. My mental state is right where it needs to be. I got this damn thing. ❤❤
