6in Block Pulls
573lbs x 1 @ RPE 8
485lbs x 5
485lbs x 8 @ RPE FML 💀(Shown)
Finished off with some bodybuilding chest & back

My block pulls below the knees have always been way worse than off the floor. Considering how well 573 moved, I think my 3 months of oly lifting may have actually improved my deadlift... A lot. I’ll probably max out in like 3 weeks

Oh, hey again, been slacking on posting.
Anyways, redoing 3s week from a few weeks ago, you know when I could NOT, for the life of me, get that last set of 205x3. Well, it was slow but, dammit, it happened!! But first a set at 180, and some others I didn't record. This makes think I need to reconsider my meet goal 🤔🤔🤔
I so appreciate this spot too, he was ready but still so far from touching my bar and let me work through it!! 😍
Oh, and I think my lats have grown, I can feel them being annoyed by certain bras 😂 yay? Yay.

Nothing easy about transforming yourself..... since I've started this it's given me a much greater respect for those that have the ability to mentally block out cravings, work out even when they don't feel like it, and put the work in.... it's given me the inspiration to keep grinding. I'm NO WHERE close to where I want to be, but excited to see where I set by the end of summer. #motivation #fitnessjourney #fitness #diet #liftheavyshit #dowhatmakesyouhappy

Taking a mirror selfie in the gym locker room is one of the biggest thrills of my life cause YA JUST NEVER KNOW if someone might walk in and catch you mid pic #doingitanyway

When I decided to make health/fitness a priority in my life a little over 3 years ago, I knew very little about what to actually do to get the results I wanted. I knew I wanted to be “toned” and that was about it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Spent the better part of a year doing bbg circuit workouts, eating smoothie bowls and walking on the treadmill. Aaaand there wasn’t much progress happening there.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Flash forward a couple years and the amount I have learned through trial and error and research blows me away. We’ve all got to start somewhere, and I know I still have SO MUCH TO LEARN 🙌🏼🤓 but there are some key things that have been monumental for me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My “fitness bible” if you will 🙂
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Weights before cardio always. Doing cardio first will deplete your energy levels.
Toning isn’t a real thing. Building muscle and losing fat is.
You can’t cheat the grind.
Not all brands/types of food are created equally. Reading nutrition labels is important.
Results are based on what you do consistently, not what you do occasionally.
Two words: progressive overload.
Eating in a caloric deficit for a long time can really fuck up your metabolism &make it harder to lose fat.
What works for someone else might not work for you.
Listening to your body is EVERYTHING.
Carbs are a beautiful thing.
Eating a bit more food and lifting heavy will do more for your body than eating less and only doing cardio ever could.
Your workout doesn’t have to be super long to be effective.
Once you start seeing results you want, eating healthier + working out becomes an addiction 😎

Couldn’t get a decent pic of my killer arm and shoulder pump so here’s me being a ditz instead 🤣 •

Fortunate to experience love that has brought about growth, sublime feelings and so many beautiful emotions. Inspired, I’ll write, improve, and share — positive energies — J&L. 🙏🏼⭐️💫🎨❤️🙏🏼
POEM 1 “A Magic Carpet Ride”, PART 1:
Each temporary goodbye between us two becomes a path to see each other again and to become closer, learn from our actions, and love each other more,
Love that expands, love that nourishes, love that has us rejoicing in the streams of love,
This ocean of love so bright, so full of light, forever imparting its sublime and sheltering hope,
Together heart and soul, as we go, as we navigate, as we dream and live and learn from our mistakes and treasure our merits,
Heartfelt pinky promise!
Professionals, from therapists, to poets and doctors assert its 100%love that results in such extreme ups and downs — those couples who are willing to overcome the most intense periods and give themselves yet one more chance seem to become, and are, the most solid together in love,
It’s never late! they say! be patient, have faith, share love in any way you can,
The sun comes out, oceans and rivers flow, eyes that open, our love, divine
