We all start somewhere - My first year of college I got really sick - But I kept up my unhealthy habits - Binge eating, not sleeping, and drowning my worries in booze; I literally had pushed my body to its limit - I couldn’t even take a leisure walk outside without spiking a fever, always out of breath, I was weak. Not only that, I was mentally unhealthy - Often crying in my room because I hated what I saw in the mirror, blamed myself for how people treated me, felt like I was never enough compared to others....We all start somewhere. I started my journey appreciating the good health I didn’t have because I had depleted it and taken it for granted. I made a change because I finally decided I wanted to change - I was unhappy being controlled by my wanting to please others, be accepted by others; Tired of basing my self worth off the comparisons I made with the people I wish I looked like; Tired of being torn down and picked apart by myself and others - I no longer wanted to be anything but better than I was the day before, because I decided to take control of who I was becoming and to become someone I was proud to be - We all possess this power, and we all have the potential to become better everyday - But its a choice, and it starts with having the inner strength to know your worth and know you can do better, be better - And not only want it, but to make it happen. My journey was rough, but looking back I wouldn’t give up the times I’ve hit rock bottom or lost tough with myself for anything, because it’s given me the heart, strength, & happiness that I’ve found in myself today🦋💪🏼🌹☀️

May 2017 ➡️ Feb 2019
My phone permanently died on the weekend and it wasn’t backed up for a few years, so when I got my new phone I only had videos and photos from 2017 😂
I was pretty surprised at how much less muscular I was back then 😱
I’ve been lifting for 7 and a half years, but it’s safe to say the majority of my progress was made between 2017 and now because holy crap... WHERE was my muscle in the first video 😂 At the time that was what I considered my leanest and most muscular🙀😹
Not saying there’s anything wrong with that look! Some people may even prefer it, and that’s okayyyy👌🏼🙌🏼
But for MY personal goals, I like looking more muscular because it shows you’re a hard worker. 😈 Anyone can be a slim, small girl but to have a well built, muscular physique... that shows discipline, consistency, and dedication. 💪🏼🔥
I’ve always thought women with a little more muscle look awesome and badass. From the day I started lifting I wanted to be muscular enough that when people saw me walking down the street in normal clothes, they’d know I lift without me telling them 😂🦸♀️
If you’re someone who’s scared to get muscular, I encourage you to ask yourself WHY. 🤔
Is it because you’re just blindly following what society tells us what beauty looks like? 👀 That women should be tiny and frail? WHY would that be a good thing? So you’re weak and defenceless and need to rely on a man? I don’t know.
I think that people should think about these things and not just blindly follow what the media tells us what beauty is. 🧐
And that’s all I have to say! Now go build some muscle if ya want to 💪🏼😜
Тренировка в самом маленьком зале, что я видел: гантельный ряд до 16 кг, лавочка и несколько кардио тренажёров, ах да, ещё фитбол, но что ещё ожидать от зала в отеле 🤷🏻♂️
Зато были полотенца, кондер и яблочки, чтобы закрыть углеводное окно 🙄
Встал в 7 утра, так рано я никогда не занимался, выпил кофе и вроде как смог хорошо потренить 🙃
Заметил одну вещь: как бы мало ты не спал и много не ходил, у тебя всегда есть энергия и силы на все что угодно 💪🏼
А ещё я занимался босиком, плохой, плохой я 😂
Жим штанги лёжа 💪🏼
- 165 кг на 1 раз
- 120 кг на 17 раз

Заливает ли с творога? 🤔
Вроде как не должно, если у тебя нет лактозонепереносимости...
Ты спросишь: а часто ли она встречается?
Как оказалось, довольно часто, по опыту моих клиентов. В разных вариациях: у кого-то дикая аллергия, у кого-то просто отеки и проблемы с кожей, у кого-то живот крутит, вплоть до температуры 😳
Решил провести небольшой эксперимент - питаться в основном творогом. Сейчас в моем рационе запеканки, сырники, вафли и т. д., плюсом к этому идут йогурты и кефир. В день съедаю примерно по килограмму творога.
По ощущениям стал более «водянистым», это заметно и по более худшей сепарации мышц и отёчному лицу и телу. В целом, проблем с жкт нет.
В остальном питание не поменялось и, вроде как, «заливать» может только с молочки в моем случае.
Со следующей недели буду убирать молочку и смотреть за результатами. Об итогах отпишусь. Также сдам анализы на лактозонепереносимость, очень интересен результат. 🧐
А вы едите молочку и есть ли проблемы с её усваиванием?
Fitting your guns into a t shirt is one of the best feelings in the World. Wouldn’t you agree?
I still remember my skinny fat days where I would dream every single day to fit in a cloth. Unfortunately I didn’t know what the right approach was to transform. I was fat but looked skinny from the outside and that was really confusing because If I dieted down I will lose more weight and end up skinnier and If I bulked up I would end up being more fat. .
So what did I do?
Don’t jump in too hard, if you start extreme dieting you are more likely to not reach your goal! Start be making small changes in your diet to form a calorie deficit 🥗

SUMO VS CONVENTIONAL DEADLIFT
Two of my favorite movements! But I will say sumo took me a very long time to master so I hope if you are new to sumo deadlifts or conventional or still mastering the movements, that these tips help! .
Primary muscles targeted:
Glutes, Hamstrings, Quads
Glutes: The glutes are targeted to a high degree by the sumo deadlift, primarily due to the foot/hip placement in the setup. The hip is placed in external rotation, which in turn involves the glutes to a higher degree, making this a great movement to target the glutes.
•get your body behind the bar
• point toes out
• engage lats and get the slack out of the arms
•generate torque and push your hips through
Muscles targeted: full body
•anchor the feet and spread the floor
• push hips back
• make sure bar is over the mid-foot
• engage your lats by tucking your elbows in
• pull all the slack out of the bar before lift off

Got back to Dubai last weekend. Really didn't feel like doing fancy mealpreps so just stuck with the basics. 80g spaghetti and 200g cooked chicken breast for lunch. Tuna salad with cinnamon,pepper, salt and some stevia for breakfast.-
I'm going to try hitting higher protein intakes of 3g/kg of bodyweight for the next 8 weeks and see if it improves body composition.Majority of my carbs will be consumed peri-workout and fats towards the end of the day I've already gained like 10kgs from my lowest, and since I'd like to bulk for prolonged periods, I'm keeping my calorie intake the same until a few more weeks, progress in the gym and assess if my body composition improves. Which means a lot of chicken boobies and tuna and protein sludges. Me likey!-
