πŸ•―πŸ•―πŸ•― NEW, PERSONAL POST ABOUT DEPRESSION. Link in bio. πŸ•―πŸ•―πŸ•―
_________
Imagine headphones. They're tangled and all you want is to hear the music play.... (Keep reading)
________
SIDE NOTE: It's not really about headphones and the music isn't really about the music. πŸ’€πŸŽΆ

WHO SHOULD READ THIS? β˜‘οΈPeople who don't understand depression or anxiety
β˜‘οΈPeople who say, "You just need to figure out how to deal with it" OR "you're being dramatic" OR "I've dealt with it, so you should be able to as well."
β˜‘οΈSomeone with family, friends, or coworkers who're dealing with depression/anxiety
β˜‘Anyone who wants to explain how they're feeling, but don't know how
__________
Let me know if you read it ❀️ If you're not in a good headspace, then please don't read it quite yet, unless relating to the pain makes you feel better to know you're not alone. Just be careful. These types of posts are for people who don't understand it, so they're a bit darker; this one isn't too bad, but not quite a happy ending either. The brighter, happier posts will come too. 😊😊😊

You guys have no frickin idea how excited I am to get back to lifting HEAVY!! πŸ‹πŸΌ I've been in this hypertrophy phase for about 6 weeks now and giving it another 4 before I transition into DUP (daily undulating periodization) training, lifting between 75-90% FINALLY ONCE AGAIN.
___________
Stay tuned πŸ“Ί to see what my current 1RM's are after being gone from the gym for an entire season.

Happy first day of fall! πŸŽƒπŸ•―πŸπŸ‚ So many pumpkins to pick, autumn squash soups to eat, corn mazes to get lost in, and haunted houses to cry in. Can't wait! 😊😊😊😊 If you have any pumpkin-flavored food suggestions, please send them my way because it's my favorite. πŸ‘‡πŸ»πŸ‘‡πŸ»πŸ‘‡πŸ»

On the RIGHT, I weigh 135 pounds. I hadn't begun routinely lifting yet, although I had touched weights before. My main athletic sports were tennis and track & field.
________
On the LEFT, I weigh 170 pounds and am wearing the exact same tennis shirt I was on the right. This is to give reference of the minimal difference in my waist, yet the dramatic increase in muscle mass in my legs, glutes, and arms.
_______
This was achieved after following a structured training program. Lifting 5-6x / week, targeting specific muscle groups each day. I also incorporated a mixture of HITT and LISS training for cardio 1-4x / week, depending on the intensity of my training sessions.
_______
If you want to see success, you have to keep fighting for it, despite the slow progress. ❗️ WAKE UP CALL ❗️ All progress is slow unless you get surgery, take some shit, or you're super human. It takes about 4 weeks just to see minimal amounts of progress. You're not different than anyone else when it comes to how growth and progress works.
________
If you're struggling to be patient, remember that this took me TIME and you have to enjoy the process. The process is sometimes painful, not always, but sometimes. That pain means you're growing. If you can handle an hour of pain, you will not only see physical success, but your mind will grow right there with you. When you've got that, that's the closest to superhuman you will ever be because that's when not a damn person can ever stop you from achieving what you've got your mind set on.

I mentioned this past week that I want to write a sort of "secret blog" about depression, anxiety, and the things that come along with it. πŸ€•πŸ•― The link is in my bio. Don't forget to subscribe if it's something you're interested in.
__________________
Here's a bit from the first post to give you an idea of my WHY. And to be clear, this isn't my WHY for just this blog, it's why I personal train. Its why I work with the nonprofit. Its why I put effort into helping others. Its why I try to understand everyone, even the ones who treat me so damn terribly. It's my reason for everything I do and everything I will ever do.

"Won't Keep Quiet is about the things that I've kept in my head for too damn long. I kept it in a journal, and for a good reason, but it's time to speak out and be heard for the other people around me suffering. The things I write need to be said and heard. This is my attempt to speak for the people who can't and won't speak for themselves. It's not easy to speak on. And even when you try to speak on it, in my case too, some people will try to downplay your experiences. And I'm here to stand up for that and not let it happen..." Cont. reading (link in bio)

Sometimes you just need to climb a mountain & experience the city lights to get away from the stress of the rest of the world. I needed this last night & now I'm revived. Still working on that mental health, secret blog I mentioned. πŸŒ„πŸŒƒ

YOU GUYS! 😍 I just had the best protein coffee in the world. At first I pretended to like it, then I gagged, then I tried it again and kind of loved it. Watch my live reaction on snapchat: Lexes πŸ˜‚πŸ’€
_
I'm used to drinking my coffee black- no creamer, no sugar so it was weird at first. But now I love it so I'll actually share the recipe! β˜•οΈπŸŒ Record your live reactions and tag me in them! 😜😜
_
β€’1 scoop @bpi_sports protein (Caramel Vanilla)
β€’1 cup coffee
β€’1 cup almond milk
β€’1/2 banana
>Blend it then pour & it's ready to serve. πŸ€— Use my discount code: "LEXESOH" for 20% off. Add some ice to it if you prefer iced coffee! I'm seriously drinking this every morning. It's a sneaky way to get more protein in if you hate shakes like me. 😈😜

A few months back, as I was ironically flying to Washigton D.C. to be offered the position with truth, I read this line in the Alchemist:
___
"'There is only one piece of advice I can give you,' said the wisest of men. 'The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world, and never forget the drops of oil on the spoon.'" (Page 35)
___
What this is saying is that happiness requires balance between work and passion. Don't forget about the job you have (keeping the oil in the spoon), but also don't let your job distract you from your passions & adventures in the world.
___
For example, in this story: Don't travel to all of these beautiful places and forget to look up because you're so focused on your job (keeping the oil in the spoon). But don't be so distracted by all of the beauty around you that you forget about your job. Both are necessary for happiness.
___
I constantly keep this story on the top of my mind as I have the opportunity to travel to all of these beautiful places. I've felt the happiest I've been in awhile working with truth. This was one of the biggest wake up calls for me, as an overly stressed person. In this world, we see way too many people not happy because they can't find the balance between work and play. Read the Alchemist for a wake up call.

While you're doing that, I'm headed back to San Diego from Jackson, Mississippi. ✈️🍹 My second job is working with a nonprofit so I'm gone half of the week doing events & changing lives through them when I'm not changing lives through personal training. People keep asking questions about it so I thought I'd address it once again. Anyways, I'm about to take off (and start re-reading the Harry Potter series 😎). Now go check out that video & give it a thumbs up, link in bio!

I'm thinking about starting a "secret blog" that is only accessible to those with the link for it. Basically it'll be exclusive to those following me on Instagram & other social media accounts. COMMENT IF YOU WOULD READ IT! β€οΈπŸ“
_
I've been journaling & writing for YEARS with topics such as depression, anxiety, physical & mental abuse, and some other deep sh*t that not even those close to me have heard me talk about. I try to keep my topics about mental health LIGHT, but the stuff I write & keep to myself is dark, deep, and might be triggering and I've always just preferred to keep it private for many reasons, including those.
_
It was around sophomore year that I began to notice I was internally suffering from some troubles that I couldn't speak out loud. πŸ™ŠπŸŒ§ People mistook my anxiety & depression as anger & detached. There's still times when I have to realize I'm "spacing out" because of one of those two things that drag me deeper into my own head and away from the real world.
_
Anyways, it was there that I realized that the more I was suffering internally, the less I wanted others to suffer. I began analyzing those around me (and myself) to try and better understand why people are the way they are & why I am the way I am. πŸ’‘πŸ’‘πŸ’‘
_
Each day since sophomore year of high school (6 years), I've become more and more passionate about helping people overcome their sh*t. I want people who suffer to know that this isn't permanent even if it's all you know (as of current). 🌈🏩πŸŒ₯ And I want people who don't 100% understand mental illness to be painted the raw, crude truth of what it's like to be left alone and metaphorically chained down in a dark room without any resources to make it out on your own. πŸ’€β›“πŸ•³
_
Hopefully it is then that we can learn how to help others (and ourselves) rather than hurt others (and ourselves). I want to share my stories in hopes of doing this. πŸ•―πŸ’›

Comment if you want to hear my stories & experience.

If you're in San Diego, I'm taking three more clients who want to train 2-3x / week with availability on Saturday's through Wednesday's. πŸ‹πŸΌπŸ’ͺ🏻
