If you have me on #snapchat you know that I don't eat perfect but I do TRY to eat certain things that will benefit me in the long run for my health/body goals. It's important to me to look & feel good so I make sacrifices little by little hoping that it'll get me to where I want to be. I still want to enjoy life by eating the foods that I want and that is why I'm not so strict with my diet. I'm learning more & more everyday on how I can better myself or create good habits. I just need to stay focused on what MATTERS to me. In time I know that if I work on it, it'll be worth it❤️
Today leg and 🍑 day! ♥️♥️
((Random thoughts of mine))
• I want to start a YouTube channel of my fitness journey but idk I feel like none is going to watch them lol.
•I’ve been feeling kinda down these past days that I was about to drop all this fitness stuff but I remembered that gym is the only place I’m always happy , comfortable and the only thing I feel like I’m good at. • I recently quitted my job and got a new one which All I hope is it makes me grow as a person.
• I just want to focus on myself and stop letting in new people in my life. :) #gains#gluteday#gluteday 🍑 #girlswholift#fitnessjourney#fitnessgirl#houstonfit
🐶💗 She is the reason why I never make it to the gym in the morning! 👀 I was supposed to work out this morning but I kept sleeping instead. 🙈 My #1 piece of advice for getting up early to work out is to go to bed early. ((Don’t go to bed at 1am like I did lol)) Also, have your workout planned the night before. 🙌🏼 I will be traveling this afternoon so I will probably do a glute circuit when I get to my destination 😎🍑💜🎉 #happytuesday
Post glute day🍑 after a shitty day at work I most definitely didn’t feel like working out. But I pushed myself even through the discouragement. I always start with a 15 minute spin workout (on leg or glute days) and the only way I like to workout legs is super setting. Makes it easier to make use of equipment at my gym. Anyways today I do back, my second fav day🤙🏼#gluteday#supersets#booty 🍑
When the PT gets PT’d by a PT 😂 @danjackson_pt taking me through a solid legs and booty day! 🍑🍑🍑 Did these kneeling banded squats to end the session with a burn 🔥🔥🔥 As appropriate as they look 😂 they are great for the booty gains, and opening the hips! Give them a try 👌🏾
Saw these single leg hip thrusters on Men's Health... THEY ARE A LOT HARDER THAN THEY LOOK. 😭😭😭 Didn't put a weight on because 3 sets 10 slow reps per leg already hits so many parts of your legs (my quads and back were surprisingly struggling), and it was a new movement for me. ✌🏻️✌🏻️✌🏻️ You guys should try it out! Remember to squeeze your butt at the top! AND HOLD THE LAST REP FOR 5-10 SECONDS! 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 Even if I didn't super do it anymore I'm sorry I was so tired HAHA! 🙈🙈🙈 Tron outfit from @pinksalmonclothing, shoes from @_patricios. 💕 #legday#gluteday#workout#bodyweight#girlpower#girlswholift#beabeemacho#beabeeootd#beabeevideos
It’s exam season, which is a v v stressful time so it’s important to me to keep eating clean and wholesome foods as well as getting out and doin some exercise 🤗
It helps to keep me motivated and focused ☺️📝
Back at it with my treadmill shenanigans ⚠️ My friend @julie.anne21 watched this before I posted it and asked me what’s the hardest thing I do on the treadmill and without hesitation I said “running” 😂. Just trying to spice it up 🔥! Speeds range from 1.0-4MPH; intervals of 30 seconds; use as a finisher or keep completing the exercises for AMRAP in 20min. #ihatecardio
Heavy glute day + @steelfitusa’s Buns of Steel=Keeping me on track during the offseason 💪🏻I apply this thermogenic before all my glute workouts followed by 20 mins of cardio which really tightens and tones the glutes. You’’ll feel the heat within minutes😅🔥#BurnBabyBurn
Some are some tips for staying on track post show:
1️⃣Always have a post plan- for your diet and training. Ask your coach ahead of time
2️⃣Throughout your prep don’t become obsessed that you lose sight of reality – of your friends, family and normal life. It will make it hard transitioning back.
3️⃣Don’t completely cut out cardio. Slowly bring it down plus who doesn't love an endorphin release every once and awhile 💁🏼
4️⃣Schedule in your cheat meals so you can keep control
5️⃣Prepare yourself that you will lose this physique but think of the ‘off-season’ improvements that can be made when not in a calorie deficit
6️⃣Set other goals that aren’t just focused on aesthetics. I LOVE strength goals to motivate me in the gym👊🏻
