It doesn’t matter how long you’ve known me, but you’ve probably never seen me in a sleeveless top. for as long as i can remember, i’ve always been self conscious of my arms, whether it’d be because of what other people have said or my lack of self confidence. they’re not as firm as i’d like them to be, i carry more f*t on my arms and they’re covered in stretch marks.
but not today. i’m choosing to embrace my “flaws”. society’s perception of the perfect size and shape will not make me love myself any less. after all, beauty is more than skin deep - true beauty to me is confidence, love, empathy, joy, generosity and so much more. ❤️
Mindset while bulking/cutting
i feel like no one talks about how difficult a bulk can be. 1️⃣ difficult bc eating a lot of food can feel sickening. 2️⃣ difficult because you are intentionally putting on weight (we focus so much on losing weight)
i keep having this thought that my workouts need to be a1, so my food can be put to good use lol. so today we were benching, and i literally was so focused on how good of a workout i needed to have... that i ended up needing so much extra help with my bench. i was so unfocused on the actual workout itself, i felt like i was just on autopilot. i don't even know if that makes sense lol)
my point is, the mindset behind bulking is so important, or we can make ourselves crazy from it. this 100% goes for losing/cutting weight as well! i'm not going to have such high expectations with my workout, and that'll probably-actually make the workouts better!
this was very ramble-y, but maybe you can relate?¿ 😊 have you ever realized you have been working out on auto pilot? ⬇️⬇️ ••••••••••••••••••
Full video on facebook, youtube, and the audio version is on my podcast (spotify / itunes / soundcloud). click the link in my bio for the facebook link.
this video wasn't easy to make and pretty uncomfortable record. and it was even scarier to post. but i wanted to do it, because i think it will resonate with some of you out there that need help.
i'm talking about my very own fitness journey.
you may look at pictures of me and think i've got it easy, got good genetics, or i'm lucky etc. but the truth is i've come through many of the same barriers and obstacles that you face right now (and in some cases more). and it's in this video where i let you in behind the scenes, like no other coach probably would.
i could see here and say it's all about manning up in the gym and throwing some weight around. but the truth is that's the easy bit. the hard part is the emotional side of things. changing the way you feel about yourself is not easy. but it's g*****n worth it.
it took a lot of convincing for me to record and post this, so i hope you find value in it. and i hope it helps some of you out there with similar challenges realise that there is light at the end of the tunnel and you can achieve your goals.
and if you want to reach out to me for any advice, guidance, or even to share your story with me, i'm happy to listen and offer support.
let me know what you think of the full video once you've seen it. like and share this one with your friends, because i think it's important.
oh. and if dreaming elegance spam this post i'm going to lose my shit!...
