#transformationtuesday because this year has been all about bettering myself, physically and mentally... and loving myself no matter what happens.
NEVER FORGET how far you’ve come, everything you have gotten through and all the times you have pushed on even when you thought you couldn’t. All the times you wanted to give up but got yourself through another day. Never forget how much strength you have learned and developed💝
Looking for a quick workout for those rushed mornings? Just a little something to activate your #muscles and get that blood pumping? 💦 This morning I found myself waking up LATE ⏰ but knew my day would not be the same if I didn't take time to wake my body up. After a quick 1 mile sprint on the treadmill I concocted a little workout for myself:
. . . .
4 rds 🏋🏼♀️ 10 skater lunge each leg (holding 20 lb DB)
10 hanging leg raises
10 front squats (two 20 lb DBs)
10 mountain climbers (each leg - 20 total)
. . . .
To really feel the burn, try limiting rest time as much as possible between rounds and between movements 🔥
This chick was super keen on getting into Lycra and lifting some weights this evening! Energy levels have been really good and I think thats due to the lasting buzz of being in a new job 🙈 in the process of putting together my first progress vlog but learning a new editing program so bear with me 🙈 life is gooooooooooood. Are you doing good? I hope your good 😊
Post Diwali Lull 🤷🏻♀️ I know a lot of you might be finding it hard to re kick your fitness regime post Diwali even if you so want to yet there's lack of energy and motivation. Even I'm one of them🙊 Although I kept up with my workout through the festivities yet I was feeling not so motivated to hit the gym until yesterday. It's hard to train your mind to go in the opposite direction when all your folks are celebrating and having fun but I made it to gym even if I didn't give my 100%. Point is I don't always have that raging enthusiasm about gymming, there are times when no matter how good things are going I find myself lacking motivation and that's completely normal and human. In times like these I try to workout even more so that it finally pushes me to my zone again.
Well, you don't have to do the same, here are some quick tips to adopt post festival season to get you in form again! 🔅 Lower your carb intake and up your protein intake as all those mithai and mathri got you feeling slow and dull. 🔅Sipping on PLENTY of water, coconut water or fresh fruit juices will detoxify you body and reenergise yourself. 🔅Say NO to Caffeine! I know it's hard but it's the worst when it comes to bloating. Instead drink green tea or any herbal tea you like which will also help with natural fat burning. 🔆 Eat right! Cut salt and sugar from your diet, include more of salads, sprouts, fresh fruits or smoothies. Don't starve, eat in every 2 hours else you ll slow down your metabolism. 🔅 Munch on nuts to avoid binging on leftover Diwali snacks. 🔅 Good night's sleep! The most neglected factor when it comes to well being, you might be working late nights to catch up with the pending work but without a fresh mind all is in vain. MENTAL Health first!
Hope this helps!❣️ Stay Fit Stay Positive! .
Everything in life cries out for balance. Living in either end of the spectrum in any area of life is harmful long term. We break down if we do too much, we grow restless or weak if we do too little.
Our lives as a whole need balance! Paying too much attention to your physical appearance leaves emptiness on the inside. Yet we live in a world that will judge how well you're doing based on your outer exterior alone.
My world was a tiny pit of misery with anorexia. I had a one track mind, only one goal over all: lose weight. Even if it kills you. I look back at those 7 years and then where I am today, and I'm amazed how much life can change. I feel so multidimensional now! My time is not consumed with one freight train of a thought that crushes everything else in its path. That beautiful balance is there, I enjoy so many things. I love the peace of lying in bed doing nothing, whereas before, I felt pressure to do something, and doing something lead to being so stressed that I had to binge/purge. There wasn't a calmness in me. An imbalance of negativity.
Everyone has to find their OWN balance for their lives, people won't hesitate to tell you what is too much or not enough. To some I don't do enough, to others I might do too much or be all over the place. I've gotten the comment before that I "went from one extreme to another" aesthetically. But they don't have any clue about the ease that I live life with now. My fitness is an ingredient in my fun, free life. I take my goals seriously, but sometimes I would just rather spend my time doing other things than being at the gym. If my husband is off & wants to stay up late with me, that is what I choose over gym time without a drop of guilt. The idea that gains come before everything else is not my idea of happiness or balance. I feel leveled between big dreams & being realistic. I'm gonna get there, but enjoy life along the way. While my setbacks have not been fun, they've strengthened me mentally. Physically I've been bigger, but my mind was given a chance to grow. Life has lows which balance the highs, but both can be times of growth if you let them! Forever chasing balance so I can be the best me inside and out.
Like my girl Said.. ❤️
You can tell who the strong women are!
They’re the ones building each other up, instead of tearing each other down.
So proud of this bossbabe 💪🙌 @cookies_and_muscles -

Fitness is actually 10% useful knowledge to help people and 90% angles and lighting.
In saying that these @againfasterau racks are placed beautifully for some really good lighting.
2nd phase of the comp prep called for triples at 130kg and then some back off sets. Legs were petty fatigued from basketball last night but the weight still felt comfortable.
The pigment you can see in this purple carrot comes from an antioxidant compound called anthocyanin. It has more of this antioxidant than orange carrots which means it can more efficiently fight off free radicals in your body that can otherwise permanently damage cells and cause chronic illness such as cancer, heart disease and high cholesterol. Adding anthocyanin to your diet can help lower your "bad" LDL cholesterol, while also protecting your nervous system, particularly your brain, which is susceptible to oxidative damage. Long story short, try out some purple carrots, they’re delicious 💕

Det är aldrig försent att förändra en livsstil, visst är det många gånger svårt och visst kommer man falla emellanåt, men att förändra en hel livsstil tar tid! Snabba quickfix är inget jag förespråkar för ett långvarigt resultat, därför måste man först fråga sig själv: vad vill jag offra, är det värt det och hur villig är jag att nå ett mål! Hjälpmedlen finns, men det är bara du själv som kan ta beslutet! 👈🏼2 = före betakaroten☀️😂
Been hibernating super hard cause of this flu, you would think sleeping for at least 14+ hours straight will help get rid of eye bags but naaah. First time leaving the house since Friday 🍩 #KBackToSleep
