this is for everyone who thinks that a few off days in diet or missing the gym a couple times will destroy your progress 🌻 this is me post donuts and an obscene amount of fried spring rolls, potstickers, shumai, and noodles yesterday + three days in a row with no workout. whenever you have “setbacks” you can use it as an excuse to quit, or you can accept it and crush it the next day 💪🏾 I keep having people ask me for workout advice [which is AWESOME] but this is a reminder that I’m human. I slip up sometimes. but instead of quitting, I just get up the next day and try again 🌾that’s the best any of us can do.

August Goals

1. Put $200 in my Portland fund
2. Complete Phase 1 of LiveFit
3. Finish my third novel***
4. Vegan breakfast
5. Meat only on FKF

***just to update you guys, I save my monthly goals into my drafts during the last week of the previous month and then wait to post them on the 1st.

Well, I wrote these last Thursday and #3 is now irrelevant because I JUST FINISHED MY THIRD NOVEL.

Holy shit it’s so liberating to be able to say that. I think I’m going to take a couple weeks off of writing and revisit it to make sure I don’t want to make any major plot changes before I move onto the fourth installment of the series.

If my story goes according to plan, the fourth installment will be the last and then I’ll be looking for publishers. BUT I never expected the story to get this far so, who knows, it might go into five or six books 😬

Just wanted to share my little victory with you all 😃 I’m pretty stoked

Mini Rant:

I heard a guy at the gym shout to himself “fuck the knees, fuck the pain!” while he was heavily squatting with an awful form.

If you feel pain during your workouts, DONT IGNORE THEM. listen to your body, adjust your form, and go lighter if you have to.

I woke up with a sore back, therefore i kept my workout light .

Go to the gym to better yourself, not to wreck yourself.

A little pre-workout #flex 💪 finally getting my biceps back up to par. During my back and biceps #lifting today, I got back up to 40lb barbell curls 3x10!! Feeling proud of my growing #muscles and my #progress 😁✌️💃

First day back squatting since I hurt my back last monday. Felt good for the most part, had a tiny bit of pain in my back still, and my knees felt a  bit wobbly. Also seemed to have tight hip flexors/lliacus, so I gotta try to stretch them out, but that is life.
