I believe in body positive fitness. I believe you can completely love yourself and your body, but still want to be healthy and see how you can transform during fitness journey. Therefore, I believe in setting healthy goals!
Small, attainable goals such as:
Eat something green everyday
Up that cardio game
Ditch the soda
Let’s stay away from goals like:
Be a size __ by a certain date
Have a six-pack by summer
limiting calories to a miserable level
You see so much being spewed about fitness… people waiting for the body they want before they feel good about themselves, and “fitspo” that just perpetuates this.
Fitblrs, let’s make a vow to love ourselves NOW! Anything from this point is just an upgrade to an already great system!
retested the Big Three this week! Bench went from 135 to 145 Squat from 255 to 275 and Deadlift from 295 to 300. I could have gotten more on the DL I think but I had barely eaten and the 300 left me lightheaded.
4 months of crossfit later..
5-7kg difference I think.
First pic: 26th August when the only exercise I’d done in 9 months was the first month of insanity. The first 3 months of 2014 I spent at home, very depressed, barely leaving the house, on constant suicide watch and eating my body weight in pasta and cheese. The next 3 months I spent in hospital. Then I was discharged, spent some time at home and joined crossfit in at the start of September, when this pic was taken.
Second pic: this morning, after a smoothie for breakfast, after one week back at training after over a week off with a chest infection/tonsillitis and christmas chub! I’m about to go to training and it’s gonna be a tough session with the girls but I need it :)
the power of nature is so amazing and humbling. Especially with
freezing wind chill 25ft up in the air! 😁💨🍃
I was hesitant as I stepped out to the beach in Santa Monica with 35mph
gusts of wind pushing my body back into my car. I am really glad I still went ahead
and hung out did #acroyoga with my friends, and did my rope climb circuit.
