Throwback Thursday▪️I miss powerlifting. No lie.
.
.
▪️I am an intense person, and powerlifting gave that intensity a distinct home. I have felt a little like Sandra Bullock in Gravity ever since I made the decision to leave the sport indefinitely. I wanted to see some changes occur in the shape of my physique, and that required a complete halt to life in the gym as I knew it while being a powerlifter. Powerlifting was my first home. I began in college and intermittently returned to it, eventually landing on the World Powerlifting Congress platform in 2014 and setting world records in a division that had no one set a record previously. In fact, I kept breaking my own records, which is the true point of powerlifting.
.
.
▪️There was something truly comforting knowing that it was just me, the bar, my past, my future that I faced each meet. I was in charge. I controlled my fate. Either I lifted the weight...or I didn't.
.
.
▪️I miss it. Terribly. But the goals for what I want to see out of my physique have narrowed as much as my waist has narrowed since I last picked up a deadlift bar over a year and a half ago. I went from deadlifting 300 to 315 lbs for reps in the gym regularly and deadlifting 330 lbs on the platform to never deadlifting again. Do you know what deadlifting almost 3 times my weight did for me? It helped me step off the earth. I joined the stars. I shook hands with the galaxy. I felt weightless at the same moment I was pulling more weight I could ever imagine being capable of pulling.
.
.
▪️Just like there will never be a single person who will ever fill the void in my life from my grandmother passing away in 2008, there too will never be a single thing that fills the void where powerlifting once embedded itself into my head, heart, and gut. Some things can never be replaced.
.
.
▪️I know the same is true for bodybuilding...just in a different manner. I am in day 2 of contest prep, and hope to break my own records of conditioning and shape. Let's see what this year holds.

I already posted two #humpday pictures this week before we even got to the official Hump Day, so enough of that.
.
.
▪️ Fact: I haven't made my bed all week. Additional fact: I haven't styled my hair either. Final fact: I get my eyebrows threaded. Unless they turn 100% gray, I'll never microblade them. It's just not for me. Neither are lash extensions. I have some sort of affinity towards mascara. I absolutely love mascara. I could survive with just lipgloss, concealer, and mascara if I had to. Maybelline is my favorite brand too. I've tried the super expensive ones, and I always return to Maybelline. And I like to buy several varieties and mix and match them. I don't know why. It's one of many millions of quirks. I'd ask about your quirks, but I've read some of y'all's comments on my stuff, and I'm not sure I want to know. 😂

Just in case anyone was wondering if I Photoshopped my glutes for yesterday's post. This is how they look on stage. Genetics, years of powerlifting with a history of a 275-lb squat and 330-lb deadlift in the 114.5-lb weight class in the APF, and continued upkeep of accessory glute exercises including hip thrusts as light as just a tension band to as heavy as 365 lbs. And I never go no-carb. I eat my cheat meals in off season and don't over cardio. And did I mention genetics? I've always had a big butt. At just 4'11", it takes up half of me. But I have done what I can to keep it from being a sloppy butt that drags on the ground. How's that for a visual? 😂🍑 By the way, if I were going to Photoshop anything, it would be my nose. Can I over cardio that thing? 😂🤥 .

A little #mondaymotivation in case you were thinking of skipping training your glutes this week. 🍑

🖤Leg day is on the books for me tonight, once I finish with my final, first-semester deadline for school. I don't feel I did my best this first semester, but I do feel I have improved and have a better handle on what direction I want to go in as a fiction writer. I still struggle with a bunch of the elements of writing fiction, the main one being my brain getting in the way of my brain. That's a common theme in my life. I'm too methodical, too meticulous, too detail-oriented, too self-aware, too others-aware. It all jumbles in my head, fighting for space, and threatens to stop my pace. I wrote in my study proposal for the second semester that I want help finding a consistent pre-writing activity that would help me shut that portion of me off--or at least dim it--so I could write for a specified period of time with a zen-like flow. Because I know that when my words flow, like water from a faucet, I can create something worth reading. Kind of like I've done in the realm of bodybuilding, creating something worth seeing. 🖤

Posing Workshop Recap ▪️Thank you to everyone who came out in the rain to the May posing workshop. We spent the 90 minutes working on posing alone in front of a group, holding our "waiting poses", simulating a stage, correcting our poses, learning what we have difficulties doing versus where we have strengths in our posing, and getting affirmations to last us beyond the workshop. If you would like to attend a posing workshop, the next one is June 10th, and registration is already up on my website: www.jodileigh.com (link in bio). Every workshop is different, and I promise you will walk away knowing more and doing better than when you walked in. 🖤 .

Originally I took this picture today to show me in an unfiltered state with just a little concealer on for make up. I don't know why; maybe because I want people to still be able to recognize me when they meet me in real life and not ask where my bunny ears are or why I suddenly have freckles, wrinkles, and pimples? 🤣 But then I decided to tack on another topic.
.
.
▪️I have a confession. I am a procrastinator. I read on one person's social media page--someone with 100K+ followers, so this is proof that the number of followers you have does not automatically stamp authenticity onto your words--that procrastination was a sign of laziness. I've discussed this at length with therapists, educators, and other educated individuals. Laziness may breed procrastination, but procrastination does not always signify laziness. It actually can be a sign of creativity, and even intelligence. The key to focus on is the quality of the end result. I used to tell my ninth-grade English students that if they truly could write an excellent paper the night before it's due, I would be fine with that. Not everyone can work well under pressure (especially 15-year olds whose writing skills leave a lot to be desired), but some people need the pressure in order for their brains to start clicking with creative ideas. I seem to be one of those, though I hate it. It drives me insane. But I've been told that if I produce work well when up against the gun of a deadline, then maybe I need to change how I view my procrastination rather than beat my head against a wall and waste energy worrying about the fact that I am procrastinating. Does that make sense?
.
.
▪️By the way, I'm procrastinating right now while I write this post. I have a school deadline on Monday, and I have three major pieces of it to finish and a bit of editing to do. I will hate life on Monday, yet I'll get it done, feel great afterwards, and vow to never do it again. Until the next time when I procrastinate all over again. This is what we call Groundhog Day. 😂

On this #flexfriday, take a moment to flex your self-esteem. Social media can be a beast. I've had a few different clients tell me this week that they had to take a break from scrolling through their feeds. I get it. I sometimes see posts that bother me, irritate me, anger me, make me doubt myself, make me question what is real versus what is presented for public appeal (even when it's disguised as not catering to a particular audience), and make me ask is it okay if my opinion differs from what the "popular" opinion seems to be. I hope my page simply gives some insight into me, my history, my knowledge, my opinions, my experiences. I hope you get a little humor and a touch of insight. I understand I'm not everyone's cup of tea (or coffee ), so while I may wonder why I have lost followers after a previous post or question if I'll lose followers from a potential post, ultimately I know my page is a public one for people to enter and leave as they choose. Just as I do with others' pages. I see my page as this: a similar entity as a scrapbook that I've put out on the coffee table. And y'all are guests to my party. You're invited. Should you choose to attend, you're welcome to peer into this scrapbook that is filled with photos and captions detailing the parts of my life I want to share or think will be helpful or humorous to you or will get you to think or feel something you might not have before reading my post. You don't have to attend my party; you don't have to peruse my scrapbook. But if you choose to, I hope you walk away with more--not less--than what you came to the party with. 🖤

#throwbackthursday 🖤 Back to 2012. I think. I don't know. I'm old. I can't keep up with the years. It's whatever year I had both long red hair and short bangs. I seriously use my hairstyle, length, and color to pinpoint what year a photo is from. Does anyone else do this (and if you were born after I graduated from college, you aren't allowed to answer this 🤣)? Speaking of which, can anyone guess what year I graduated from college? And from which school? I'll give you a hint: 🤘🏻.

"You don't think I lost my butt while dieting for this show, do you, Sean?" 🤣🍑 It is one of my fears (when it comes to dieting for shows; elsewhere in the real world, I have tons of other fears). I never really had much in the breast department, so when those go from small to smaller, it's not a big deal to me. But my butt? Please don't let me lose that! Quite frankly, I think I could be a skeleton and still have a booty. 🍑🤣 Anyway, happy #humpday! .

Time is flying by so fast this year, and the summer shows are fast approaching. If you are a competitor, do you have your posing polished for the stage? Turn your sound on and listen to IFBB Women's Physique Pro, Christine Porter, tell a little about her experiences working with me. If you'd like to share in that experience, contact me for one-on-one instruction (I offer online and in-person instruction) or come out to one of my monthly posing workshops. This video gives a little insight into my way of teaching. Visit @theposingprofessor and see below for details on May's workshop.
