#TBT to when i was 15, and deadlifting 500lbs in $30 Jordans lol. Low key broke a world record as well, for a few months I had the strongest raw deadlift of anyone in the 90kg category, sub junior (14-15) worldwide, across any federation.
Weighed in at 189lbs, benched like 250 and squatted 365 or something. I became so spoiled because my first meet was such a well organized meet.
SHOUT OUT TO WHOEVER LET ME USE THEIR BELT!!
I didn't workout today and that doesn't make me any better or worse than anyone else. It just is what it is. I am no less dedicated to my goals and progress will continue as normal. For what it's worth I can relate better to my cat today; Loved & well fed. Hope everyone got to enjoy some part of the day.🐈
So thankful that I found the straight edge at a young age. For decades now being drug and meat free has kept me healthy, happy and vibrant. Over the years I’ve seen addiction ruin lives and send people to an early grave. I’ve also seen drugs take people to a place where they never quite bounce back mentally and physically. Even casual drinkers eventually feel the toll that alcohol takes on the body. I’m grateful I never took that route. Not only do I feel like I never missed out on anything, I feel like I’ve gained a thousand times over. On Thanksgiving day I’m grateful to this idea that benefited my life so much, and the scene that supported me in so many ways. True till death!
Time to set some goals for 2018! I’d like to tick off competing in a drug free powerlifting competition... Maybe go back to BNBF Natural Bodybuilding or even try a new category in a new federation... FMC Fitness Modelling? 🤔 Tough decisions, but training with a purpose helps me to focus 🤓
Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃 This is not your typical Thanksgiving meal, but it sure was delicious. I am so thankful for you all ❤️.Enjoy this time to focus on the things that are great about your life, whether you're working, spending time with your family, or spending time with your recovery family. There are always things to be thankful for.🙏🏼
DAY 75: NOT EVEN ONE 👈
No one but an addict will ever truly understand the importance of this statement.
▫️"One cookie won't kill you."
▫️"You have GOT to try this cake, just have a sliver."
▫️"It barely has any sugar in it, it's healthy, just try it."
It's like the devil calls to me through the innocent mouths of my family and friends. Many people who say these things are even aware of my struggles but clearly do not understand the seriousness of them. When it comes to food addiction many people just compare it to their own minor struggles with food/dietary control that is often tied to their weight management goals. This all makes it incredibly difficult for a food addict to gain support or to even be taken seriously when reaching out for help.
That one bite of my addictive substance would send me straight back to hell, so I have learned that when it comes to addiction, people pleasing is never worth it. I dont care if you made the cake out of love for my own birthday, I ain't touching it! Over the years I have learned that I need to be my biggest advocate, even in my times of weakness; only I can truly look out for myself. Thank you God for 75 days 🙏
If you are new to my account, please join me on my recovery journey. I will be sharing daily posts for my first 100 days of abstinence from my addictive substance - sugar. Your support is greatly appreciated.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!❤️
While we should effervescently show grattitude for the greatnesses in our lives year-round, today's the day that reminds us all to take a moment to say thanks for it all. Thanksgiving is a refreshing holiday for me. The reminder of all the positives in my life and want, that is too easily overseen, to show gratitude towards them. In our chaotic lives and at this time in America, especially, It is extremely easy to focus too much on all the controversy, violence, wrong-doing, etc... But at these times, it is most crucial that we, as family, gather to remind ourselves of the grattitude we posess but rarely express. To remind ourselves that, in all this chaos, the stars still shine bright for us all to see. So...what I am most thankful for is music. I am thankful for artists being able to freely express their thoughts and beliefs through their lyrics and sound. I 'live through' many musicians, for they always seem to wrangle the words into their lyrics that I struggle to find, creating something that expresses not only themselves, but gives me something to resonate with aswell. When no one else understands, there will always be music that does.
Good music aswell as inspiring artists are what im extraordinarily thankful for, so now I ask you; what lights the fire inside YOUR heart? What are you thankful for? Comment down below! I'd love to hear from all of you!😉✨
P.S. I am also thankful for cats☺️👍🏼

Have you tried our Cryo Facials yet? Only 12 minutes of -162°c mist to relax the facial muscles, reduce puffiness, tighten skin, promote colleges production and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It works wonders on skin disorders such as eczema and acne!
If you aren't putting in time someone else is. When you decide to take a break someone out there is busting their ass. These are the things I tell myself each day so that I never fall off. I want to be the best me possible, only I can hinder my own growth and progress.

I'm sharing a movie with you today - like in bio - that had a profound impact on my life. I love how we can continue to learn and grow and be better because of things that great leaders and teachers have shared with us. Even if they're no longer here. 👍🏻😊
Enjoy the movie, it's amazing and it might just be the right time for you to watch it. 🙏🏻😎
