✨New Blog Post: “Why I stopped counting calories and macros a long, long time ago” - Link in Bio✨
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I like to tackle the mental battles with this health journey... and share my experiences with them. I’ve tackled body dysmorphia, food addiction, and today I’m addressing calorie and macro counting. I narrate why I think it’s a negative way to approach this journey I also share my approach to stopping and the steps I took.
Now before I have the macro counters coming at me, let me assure you, I’ve counted before.... and this piece is solely based off my experience with it. I lost almost 100lbs (11 years ago) without counting a thing ... but shortly after losing the weight, my obsession for the “perfect, shredded physique” snowballed and led me to counting for a few years while on this journey. I say all this to say, I’ve been there, and at one point was a big advocate. But I’ve come to realize one thing - assigning a number to your food sucks and there are serious mental side effects that come with it. In this post, I detail why it’s not a lifestyle I want to live, or advocate for.
The various before and after photos you see above depict two very different people. On the left is an obsessed, critical, and cynical girl who counted every thing she put in her mouth very early on in her journey. The gal on the right is someone who’s been living a balanced and healthy lifestyle for about 7 years. Sometimes she shredded, sometimes she’s not. And while she’s not as lean, she’s in a much happier place ❤️ The curves don’t hurt either 😏
Have a read (link is in my bio), and please let me know your thoughts in the comments! If you agree, or oppose, I’m totally open to the dialogue! ❤️😘
I did this routine at the end of my shoulder workout!! There’re basic movements, but better beneficial for the entire body. I believe everyone should be able to master these movements. -
I drink my Pineapple 🍍 BCAAS during and after my workouts to help with muscle recovery. I take one scoop. If you use my code HEIDY you’ll save a 20%OFF @1upnutrition #1upnutrition -

Practice makes... improvement. Perfection is a myth. If you’re still alive, you have more to offer.
Favourite month of the year 💯❄️💙
(Lesson of the day: Never sit on a wet bench!! Not worth it, not even for the picture 😂)
When I’m not lifting heavy I love to train using EMOM (every minute on the minute)
By doing something every minute and then resting the remainder of that minute, you have a very simple structure with which to manage fatigue and implement progressive overload. .
C1 - front squats, back squats
C2 - prowler plank push, prowler sprint
EMOM - 10mins each. How much will you sweat? 😈
220kg x 3 Reps - The abandoned Heavy Squat session from earlier in the week was re-visited today with a better result as I was able to perform a number of sets at this weight. The bar felt a whole lot lighter off the rack and I felt capable of handling the load with much better control. Having said that I think it might be time to drop the intensity and focus on increasing the volume leading into the new year as I tackle a prep phase in the lead up to the @wbff_official competitive season.
Shout out to fellow WBFF Pro @richmaait for helping me with the re-rack and resident weapon @elvih_63 for the camera work🙏🏻.
I followed up these squats with accessory work lead by @zacperna and involving @chrisanastasii as part of a @ehplabs_ausnz YouTube VLOG due to be released soon 🔜. The session focused heavily on Time-Under-Tension training and establishing a clear mind-muscle connection. It’s amazing to see how many secondary muscles you can inadvertently recruit when performing an exercise like Hamstring Curls if you fail to engage the target muscle and allow momentum to take over the lift. One thing I’ve come to realise when it comes to building muscle is that there are many ways to skin a cat so to speak. Being open-minded and manipulating programming variables by using an eclectic range of different training techniques can help you stimulate growth and provide renewed focus and enjoyment to your training.
Thank you to @titanmets and @titanfitness_au for their hospitality. I love training at Titan which is fast becoming my home away from home!🏠
I'm a flame
You're a fire
I'm the dark in need of light
When we touch
Feel the change in me tonight
So take me up
Take me higher
There's a war not far from here
We can dance
Or we can burn in love tonight

It’s not often that I’ll skip a Sunday session but today has been spent napping, eating ridiculous amounts of carbs (pasta and cheese followed by chocolate anyone?) I regret nothing 🙌🏽 @proteinempire code SQUATS15 for 15% off
stretching level 5000 😮🙌🏽 Who is this ??
I think Sundays are my favorite day because I don’t ever put anything on my schedule. I need at least one day a week to spend 80% on my couch ya know. It also gives me a chance to catch up on all the chores I’ve been procrastinating from the week prior, like changing these gd bed sheets.
Current situation & SWIPE RIGHT>>> to see my progress from
2014 to NOW // ... 8-9kg HEAVIER 😬 #nikigetsmassive ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Now this is mega #throwback so excuse the poor photo quality . Kind of didn’t want to share this manly cause Of my derp face I manage to have in every progress photos I take & secondly cause apparently I couldn’t dress myself properly in the first ones either 😂 but anyways...This my journey & progress along the way. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
LEFT: basically grinding myself to the bone with all the wrong methods & incorrect “knowledge“. Cardio bunny. Over training. Under eating. Extremely unbalanced diet. Fear of carbs. Fear of scales . Fear of lifting heavy weights. Too much comparisons to what everyone else was doing / had & not enough self appreciation...
RIGHT: Correct knowledge for training and nutrition to assist me & my goals. Lifting heavy weights. Lots of carbs (& food in general). Minimal / controlled cardio. Setting goals & “plans of attack” to accomplish them. I’ve learnt how to listen and understand what works best for my body. & most importantly, learnt to appreciated my body & what it’s capable of.
I feel as though so many girls can relate to the “LEFT” in one way or another. The best advice I could give to you would be that of my own>>> just focus on you and your journey! .
As the only person I’m competing with is myself.
So girls reading this - do exactly that, start now & focus on YOU 💪🏼💕✌🏼
