MOST RECENT

Hi I’m just rly excited about my quad growth :’)....no this didn’t take a week, I’ve been working on my legs for about three years and this is what I’ve built, no there’s no “quick fix” when it comes to sculpting a body look you want and everyone’s figure is different, no this growth isn’t a result of slacking off or giving up on my hardest days, no this isn’t my end goal. Not quite @quadtastictiff ‘s level but we still out here shooting for the stars!
__
People have been asking how to tone up their lower body and this is the best advice i can give;
__
GIVE YOUR BODY TIME TO GROW, BE PATIENT WITH YOUSELF
__
FILL YOUR BODY WITH NUTRIENT DENSE FOODS
__
FOR GOD’S SAKE STOP DOING 17000 HOURS OF CARDIO A DAY
__
STOP THINKING AN INSANELY LOW CAL DIET IS THE “QUICK WAY” TO LEAN OUT
__
LIFT THOSE HEAVY WEIGHT
__
....and stop bein a lil bitch ;)

The only thing that stays semi lean during improvement season...but i don’t mind, abs you are always welcome to hang around😊 so lately I’ve been thinking a lot about what my next move is and i realize how damn good i feel..maybe not completely confident mentally (working on it), but my increase in energy levels and strength is through the roof! Almost every gym session for the past few weeks i have been PR’ing in atleast one exercise per workout. I realize right now dieting isn’t what my body needs. It needs good food (QUALITY FOOD NOT JUNK) to use for fuel, it needs rest, and it needs lots of heavy weight sessions. The stage will always be there, and mark my words...I WILL be back. @sci_unison_fitness and i have a plan. Hi

Been in a mental funk with myself all week about where i am, where i want to be, how i look currently, how i want to look currently, etc. sometimes it’s easy to see the negatives and feel like you’re stuck, 100% how I’ve been feeling. . . .
THIS IS A REMINDER OF WHAT IM CAPABLE OF, sometimes it’s hard and I tend to lose sight of who i am for a few minutes while focusing so much on my body image, or my current shape but then i realize what I’m capable of and how much of a hard worker i am when i light the flame under my ass. (Many of us are when the we ignite our inner flames🔥) We’re ALL capable of being happy and being our best selves, I’m not saying it’s easy.. it can be very hard but we need to just push through the negatives and realize all the positive things about ourselves. If i can do it, then so can you..don’t beat yourself up for being in a funk we’re only human. Sky is the limit ladies and gentlemen, here’s to anyone having a rough time this week♥️

Summarize yourself in 18 seconds:

Two of my favorite exercises recently! So three weeks ago i decided to try my hand at some deadlifting, I started off at 95 lbs (i know sounds like i lifted in the kids section) then pushed to 115 the following week (last week) and now after touching up on form today at 5x2 i hit 145 lbs (new PR😛 ) working on form and flexibility and with that hopefully the weight continues going ⬆️⬆️ second exercise was glute bridges 3x8 kept it light with 95lbs trying to do a bit of a pause at the top to make sure my glutes contracted better...then finished the workout with a little HIIT cardio on the sled! Deathly! but feeling better than ever and only getting started. We all want to be Big Booty Judy but don’t want to work for it, get in the gym, lift some weights, and step out of your comfort zone! For the longest time i was PETRIFIED of the free weight section and i would’ve NEVER thought i would be deadlifting or squatting. Always thought i would stick to cardio bunny 🐰 han and stay where i was comfortable but ask yourself...who ever made improvements/ got shit done without stepping out of their comfort zone? Your turn. 🤟🏻 . (And for those who asked about my pants in my IG story they’re @doyoueven seamless leggings, so comfy 10/10 totallllly recommend)

Nm just hangin out hbu? 🐒
Beeeen lifting heavy lately and with that comes proper warm up and cool down. So after my heavy deadlifts i finished it off with a little traction work to help decompress the spine, looks very odd but feels amazing i suggest everyone give it a shot! Now that my calorie intake is slowly but surely going ⬆️ my energy is as well and with that comes some high volume exercising slow and controlled. Taking the good from the bad here, although i was really looking forward to competing this season taking more time off allows me to grow more, having a calorie surplus allows me to exert more energy which in turn makes me life heavier and harder. Turning a negative situation and mindset into a positive one and really starting to feel great again. One step at a time😛 . Idk why im dabbing in this either

scusa se non sono quello che volevi te, ma non so lasciarti andare.

☝🏼True transparency: tbh I felt very hesitant to post this but i know how many people are silently struggling and may feel alone...I hate feeling vulnerable but it seems like when I am I get so many responses from such kindhearted people who share similar struggles.
Recently I’ve been struggling the most i ever have with self image. Everyday i pick myself apart and it truly sucks.. i am uncomfortable in my own skin and it’s one of the hardest feelings to try and understand. I literally couldn’t wait for prep to start and to be show lean again, and work towards one of my favorite things in life! I love competing, I love my team and the whole process, the hustle, the blood sweat and tears, and the glitz and glam on show day (and of course the memories made). But recently i just haven’t been feeling myself, and after getting some much needed blood work- the results didn’t come back what i had expected nor what i wanted. My blood work has shown that some of my organs aren’t working to full capacity, and with that my metabolism has slowed down (i won’t get too much into that) but the point is when i was told i wouldn’t be able to compete this season i was heart broken, and i was even more heartbroken. Something I’ve been waiting and waiting on and i can’t partake in it. And truly it sucks. What sucks even more is realizing that i did this to myself. Yes, that’s right , after years and years of picking myself apart, eating disorders, over eating and under exercising, to under eating and over exercising, and 2 years of competing and working hard and finally thinking i learned balance (aka me still being scared of calories but a little less than usual)...my body had enough. My body got tired and started retaliating at me for what i have done to it. This is not shaming competing in ANY way shape or form, quite frankly i will get back on stage, and be better. Physically and mentally. This is making a point that we only have ONE body, we’re lucky if we can even walk never mind lift or go to the gym. This whole thing made me realize something i should’ve realized months, years ago. I am me and i am different. *continues in comments*

Be your own motivation! Nothing is better than self motivation, push yourself and don’t give up. You’re only as strong as YOU WANT to be! Feeling extremely motivated lately and ready to crush all my goals and leave no prisoners👊🏻💪🏻 Ryan Sullivan said it best, “Get it done.” @sci_unison_fitness .

Pre workout straight to the dome? Don’t mind if i do! I’ve been reallllly trying to cut caffeine from my diet to allow my adrenals to heal properly. Due to my anxiety, high stim and I ain’t the best of friends. So my main supplement i like to take before I workout is something that is stim free but still allows me to push myself to the limit. I’ve never seen or used a pump supplement that contains more scientifically proven ingredients to create a serious pump! Felt super full and tight today, and definitely pushed myself more than some of my high caffeinated workouts. For anyone who becomes a psycho from caffeine like lil ole me, and wants to still workout at a high level, swipe right and get yo booty to @ctsupplements to get Rhino Black by @musclesportproduction one of my favorite companies who’s supplements I’ve been using since my first prep! And a special thank you to @evan_physique for my @drivenlifestylecompany shirt😈👊🏻 .

#realtalk this morning i woke up and decided to stop feeling sorry for myself, to stop beating myself up over every little thing in the world, to stop overthinking every missed or untracked macro, to stop caring and focusing SO much on what other people think of me “am i still lean enough?” “Is this picture flattering enough for me to post?” “Do i still have abs?” , and to stop beating myself up over “bad workouts” (i mean for fucks sake if i got myself moving who cares if it wasn’t the BEST workout)..i should be and am thankful i even am blessed with the ability to mov and use my body. This morning i realized i am worth it. It’s sad to think these past few months of off season have made me so upset because of a scale number...now tell me how that makes ANY sense? Off season is time to put on pounds, to improve your mental ability, to refeed your body and to make improvements that are NOTICEABLE in the next prep. It sounds all so good and bare-able on paper but my fellow competitors know the mental struggle of weight gain. It’s time to stop caring. It’s time to love myself no matter what the scale says. And it’s time to realize my worth. No one is forcing me to do what i do, this is my choice and i love it. With prep coming up faster than ever and 2018 starting it’s time for a change. The negative thoughts about myself and doubting i do on a daily basis WILL diminish. It won’t happen in a day but from this point on? My 110% in everything i do whether it be lifting, school, relationships, anything. I will keep pushing myself out of my comfort zone and killing my workouts, hitting my macros and following whatever it is that my mastermind coach gives me (he may or may not be a scientist). If I’m out of my comfort zone, who cares?...i won’t anymore. Great things happen when we step out of our comfort zones. We weren’t made to be mediocre and i will not settle any longer. This is a year of dream chasing, DONT let anyone ever tell you that you can’t do something, don’t listen to people’s bullshit judgement. Be you, you’re good enough...Chase your happiness. Whatever it is you may be struggling with i hope you come to terms with and realize you can overcome anything.

basterebbe dirselo un mi manchi, invece che continuare a mancarsi in silenzio per una vita.
