When the diet start to pay off💪💦 -
I have never had abs that popped through, I’m not sure I ever will have abs that pop. I like food way too much 🍩 🍰 🍫 🍬 but seeing that bit of definition peeking through the most stubborn area to lose fat, mainly for women, is an achievement. Making the desicion to change and to better your life not only for you and your family is easy, it’s maintaining that lifestyle that’s the hard part. Training 5/6 times a week is never a chore. That side is easy for me but staying on track with my diet is the bit I struggle most with. I always read ‘it’s not a diet it’s a lifestyle’ that’s cool if your able to maintain that way of life... for me it’s a diet. It always will be. I enjoy my life far too much to become obsessed with every gram of fat, eating too many carbs or hitting my protein goals for the day. I like going for impromptu meals, eating warm sugared donuts on a winters evening and meeting friends and family for a Starbucks every now and again. That to me is part of enjoying life. For this reason I choose to diet. I diet for a period of time then have a few weeks off and start again. -
Having the body you’ve always dreamed of having requires dedication but it doesn’t need to rule your life. It’s important to enjoy the journey! -
17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God (Romans 12:17-19)
Remember this PLEASE because if it’s not happening right now it certainly will happen at some point and if you aren’t ready for it... it could hurt you instead of help you.
Some people will call you a liar and not know a thing about you personally. They will speak your name behind your back and attempt to shame you or cause you harm for no reason (personal to you). Let those individuals be who they are. You are responsible for the way you will respond (or Not respond 👌🏾) because not everyone deserves to be amused by or addressed by you. It was never and certainly is not at this time your job to make others see you for who you are. You be you knowing in good conscience who you are becoming. Period. When we narrow our focus and attentions to being about our own business we thrive, we attract good things that we need for the journey, we make necessary connections and friendships, we change, we also realize and remain the same in the areas we discover most important as anchors in our life.
Don’t sweat the haters, that bitter Betty’s, the nae-saers all just let you know you are doing the opposite of living an obscure existence. Stay a moving *ever growing* target 🎯😉. Blending in is overrated.

Voici pourquoi je conseil toujours à mes clients de prendre des photos de leur progression!
Surtout lors de perte de poids importante, les resultats peuvent sembler long à ce faire voir et le poids sur la balance baisser lentement .
Truc motivation : 🤔🤔Rapplez vous que l'endroit sur votre corps qui change le plus rapidement est votre visage.
Comme ici, mon client ce sentait un peu démotivé, car il ne perdait que très lentement du poids sur la balance. .
Mais après la comparaison des photos , les changements sont flagrants! Rappelez vous que votre composition corporelle na pas forcément de lien avec votre poids aur balance. ☝️☝️☝️
Voici la comparaison avant/après de 3 mois d'entraînement. 📈📈💪
N'oubliez jamais que vos efforts ne sont jamais en vain. Il suffit d'être patient et de savoir bien les mesurer💪😌

My completed the 12 week mesocycle with PRs😈 Got my 1 RM day done a day earlier before the equipment move for the USPA meet this weekend (downtown YMCA!) Holy shit. I feel like death today! Bring on a full day of work 💪🏻I definitely see why people leave this sport - it is awesome seeing how strong you are as a beginner but then you start to plateau (bench 🙄). I don't think I'll ever leave though 😈 I'm still really fucking happy. As always, a huge thank you to my coach @weskeith , #22bb fam and you all my #fitfam 🤗
Squat - 260 (previous 1rm 225)

Deadlift - 320 (previous 1 rm 300, accidental 315 week 8 🤣) @22ndstbarbell @bodybuildingcom @transformforlife @barbellapparel
This philosophy has been one of the best decisions I ever made in my life. I’m not always perfect at it, many times I fail, sometimes I freeze in analysis paralysis or walk to the wrong door, but whenever I step through that web of fear life gets better.
But that GLOW UP tho✨✨ @Regranned from @blackfitness - @getfitwithkatleho
From childhood, I’ve always had extra weight on my body. As a result, I grew up having a lot of insecurities about myself. I lacked confidence in myself as well as failed to show myself enough self-love. Four years later, I made the decision to love myself and to start my fitness journey. I currently find myself at a place of contentment with all that I am and have achieved in terms of my body. I’ve grown spiritually, mentally and physically throughout this journey. I, first and foremost, changed my diet especially with regards to my portion sizes and I cut out a lot of fast foods that I was addicted to. Secondly, I began to be physically active through jogging around the neighbourhood. However, over time my diet has become a lot healthier and strict. This also includes my workouts which now consist of a combination of strength training and cardio. In a nutshell, a healthy diet and a strict workout program that consists of strength training and cardio aided me in making my results possible.
Be patient and persistent. Begin to understand that we each have different bodies and that our paths won’t be the same. It may take you longer to show progress, however; that shouldn’t hinder you from working harder.
Fall in love with the journey rather than rushing to get to your destination. Be content about the results you’ve gained as you work harder towards those you would love to attain. Love yourself through the process as it will make the process better and easier.

A Calorie Deficit is Key 🔑 to Weight Loss ⚖️📉 BUT Not All Calorie Deficits are Equal! •
Order of importance 🔺
1️⃣ Energy Balance (Cals In vs Cals Exp)
2️⃣ Macronutrient Composition
4️⃣ Nutrient Timing/ Meal Frequency
5️⃣ Supplements •
Many people claim to understand this BUT only focus on 1️⃣ & 2️⃣. Although you absolutely need to have a solid foundation, once you have that in check, you can further optimize your results by dialing in 3️⃣4️⃣5️⃣! •
In this study by Arciero et al. (2013) they had 3 groups eat at calorie maintenance for 28 days and then put them in a 25% calorie deficit for 28 days. 👨👩👦👦 Group 1 - traditional diet, 3 meals per day, macro ratio 24%fat/61%carb/15%pro
👨👩👦👦Group 2 - High Protein, 3 meals per day
👨👩👦👦Group 3 - " ", 6 meals per day, macro ratio 22%fat/45%carb/34%pro
During the first 28 days at Cal Maintenance, Both High Pro groups lost some fat and gained some LBM!
During the 25% deficit, all groups lost "weight" but the traditional group (1) lost the greatest amount of LBM and the least amount of fat!
The High Protein Group that had 6 meals per day lost the greatest amount of total body fat%, abdominal fat, and was the only group that gained LBM from start to finish!
This may be due to an increased thermogenic effect of each meal and due to stimulating muscle protein synthesis 6x/day vs 3x. (There is contradicting evidence within the scientific literature showing, larger, less frequent meals has a great thermic effect) •
Too many times I hear people say these other variables "don't matter" 🤦🏽♂️😩 although they may not be nearly as important as some other variables, over time, the details do add up! It's honestly pretty easy to get results, BUT, if you want to optimize your results, other factors do come into play! •
Side notes 📝- subjects of this study were overweight or obese, were put on a meal plan (micro dense 🥒🥝🍒), and Both high protein groups reported less hunger/ more satiety.
Title: "Increased protein intake and meal frequency reduces abdominal fat during energy balance and energy deficit"
GREAT infographic by @soheefit - the truth is, while many people believe that lifting weights is ONLY to build muscle and get bigger, and cardio is ONLY for shredding body fat, the fact is that doing BOTH is going to be what will get you results when it comes to those aesthetic goals we have!⠀
•Like everything in life, we need a balance. Resistance training and cardio will work together for us, to build muscle and boost metabolism and burn that stubborn body fat. Not to mention, the way that both these forms of exercise make us FEEL. ⠀
•STRONG. EMPOWERED. CONFIDENT. ACTIVE. FIT. ⠀
•THIS 👆🏼 is why we do what we do. Keep at it. Have fun. Enjoy every second and keep a healthy mix of lifting and cardio in your routine to ensure aesthetic goals are being met as well as your goals when it comes to being active and fit!! 🙌🏼💪🏼👊🏼🏃🏼♀️🏃🏻
So this beautiful lady @becky_diywellness and I have been Instagram friends for quite awhile. She found me ages ago when we were both having adrenal fatigue, food sensitivities and hormonal issues. Look at her now💪🏼👙😍. She DM'd me today and inspired me to count my macros and try out some carb cycling. She is #onetofollow for some inspiration.
