Omg omg omg ahhhhhhh

I’m finally in the 200s y’all! 💃🏽
*

For the past few weeks I’ve been lifting 195lb for 5-6 reps, but yesterday I was like hmmmm lemme just try and push up the weight 🤔

And you know what!? I got 205lb for 5x5! For a few of the sets I could have gone for 6 reps, but I wanted to conserve my energy for the following sets 😅 plus 10lb is a big jump so I didn’t want to put too much of a strain on my body.
*


I’m really proud of myself for putting in the work on deadlifts for months on end and can’t wait to see where my growing strength and dedication will take me in the future. Possibly the 300s!? Who knows 😂 gotta dream big, right?

I’m 100% not a qualified PT or anything, I just have my own personal lifting experiences to go by, but if you ever want help with form or strength building, feel free to shoot me a DM

#100dayshappy Day one: Today I gave blood for the third time. What has made me happy today is knowing that I did something to help someone else. Often I forget in the thick of being 'busy' that it doesn't take much to do something for others. Giving blood took me 15 minutes, 15 minutes to potentially save a life. As a female, I'm only allowed to donate every 16 weeks, so that's 15 minutes in 16 weeks - why are more people not doing this? In order to meet the demand of hospitals, 6,000 donations need to be made daily - this isn't happening. Hospitals also aim to maintain a stock level of 6 days for each blood type, currently only 3/8 blood types meet this level and so donations made by anyone are so, so important. Please sign up to donate, and do your bit if you're able. Thank you, and I hope you have a fabulous day 🌼 #fitness #gym #fitnessmotivation #cardio #fitfam #fit #fitlife #fitnessaddict #bodypositivity #selflove #inspire #gfgfriends #gfg #fitfood #goalsetting #youcandoit #trainhard #fitnessgoals #gymlife #weighttraining #run #running #abs #food #netball #getshreddyforsummer #cardio #hiit #giveblood

LEG DAY ✨
Rather than upping the weight, this week I upped the resistance by swapping to my new @gracefitul band 🍑
This is what my led day consists of currently:
✨ Glute ACTIVATION - Walking side squats with band - Jump squats with band
✨ COMPOUND MOVES
- Squats with band 60kg x5 x 5 (focus on your quads being at least parallel to the floor when at deepest)
- Hip thrusts 60kg x6 x 6 (focus on your butt touching or almost touching the floor to get full range of motion and squeeze and pause at the top)
- Straight legged deadlifts 50kg x8 x 3 (lower the weight to prevent back and quads helping too much)
✨ Glute ISOLATION
- Superset Romanian lunges 20kg x8 with single legged SLDL 12.5kg x8 x 3
- Cable kick backs drop set, each leg x3
This workout takes me around one hour to complete before I finish of with foam rolling and stretching - any Q’s lemme know ✨

Physique update 👀
Body fuelled by pizza, burger, Nando’s, chips, chicken nugs and lots o cheese bites 💦

After a week full of unhealthy eating and drinking, I hit the gym yesterday with @jonny_britton doing an intense HIIT and ab workout followed by today’s glute session, where I purely focused on compound movements and ma strength 💪🏼
I finally got round to filming my PB of 90kg on sumo squats although my back was aching so much from yesterday I really struggled to keep my back straight and I also got another blister but luckily I didn’t pop this one 😉✋🏼

Happy Monday ☀️ I’m currently walking to my first class of the fall semester (Russian Literature woo 📚). My plan for today is to do an upper body circuit after finishing some work for my online courses. Recently I’d been really enjoying circuit styled workouts as opposed to traditional hypertrophy workouts in an attempt to improve my overall fitness levels and shed some fat.

Rare sighting of Kelsey not in gym clothes 🤷🏼‍♀️ update on Intermittent Fasting, I kind of gave up! It’s definitely not for me but it has helped me realise I eat A LOT even when I’m not hungry just out of habit so I’m going to try just eating when I’m hungry 😋 #thepeachycommunity .

Happy Friday everyone, feeling super unwell now but so grateful to have such lovely and kind people in my life. Ended up just doing cardio today because I was not strong enough for weight training but that’s okay because you’re not always going to be your best🤷🏼‍♀️ It’s my birthday next week so I’m going to be eating a lot of cake 🎂 #thepeachycommunity #gymshark .

Goodmorning sluts 🙂.

Wish I was waking up to this view again this morning instead of stuck behind my desk at work 😩 #allstarresorts #fantasia

New setting, new week, new goals 🙌🏽
_
Semester is starting soon and I need to get serious and set my priorities real clear.
Choices overwhelm me. More often than not, I wish someone else would just make the decision.
But life doesn’t work that way.
Breathe. Trust yourself. And remember that there’s a reason for it all. -
Hope you’re all slaying Monday 🌟

Happy Monday💞 I want to talk about something @uhnonee discussed in a recent post - self-diagnosing food intolerances. Six months ago, I noticed that my IBS (which I was diagnosed with) was considerably worse after I'd eaten dairy, so I decided I was lactose intolerant and cut out this food group. Plant milk is now my FAV and out of genuine preference I still only drink that, but with cheese, my decision to cut it out was unconsciously fuelled by its fat content. Cutting out cheese meant eating less fat which meant being healthy. Or that was my logic at least when I had a terrible relationship with food. So I'd reject even the tiniest amount of cheese because I decided I was intolerant, but gradually realised I cared more about cutting out the fat content than cutting out a sore stomach. Now skip forwards to yesterday ➡️ I had lunch in a cafe with limited vegetarian options so opted for a halloumi and red pepper salad. It was literally the BEST salad I've ever had, and the halloumi (which I'd never had before yesterday) was soo good, and I had no IBS trouble after. This forced me to confront the idea that I probably wasn't lactose intolerant (having not been diagnosed), and that instead cheese is simply a trigger food when my IBS is playing up (there was always a strong correlation between when I ate cheese and when it flared up). Yes, I've had far less trouble with IBS since not eating cheese/milk, but I shouldn't let this fuel a complete rejection and fear of these food groups. I genuinely don't like milk now/LOVE plant milk, but yesterday reminded me that, if the occasional bit of cheese doesn't affect my IBS, then go ahead gal cos cheese is tasty😋 Have a wonderful day xxx
