"Lifting weight will make you bulk and look like a man....." Said by pretty much any person I speak to that has never lifted weights before πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ One of the most expensive things you can do is pay attention to the wrong people. Everyone will have an opinion about what you are doing with your life. It's up to you to decide who you listen to and keep around you. If you associate with negative people, the dialogue in your mind will be negative. Plain and simple. Surround yourself with like minded, positive people and you will have no choice but to succeed πŸ‘ŠπŸ»

One of my most asked questions is whether I count calories or macros and the answer is no.
There are different levels of 'seriousness' when it comes to nutrition and I can understand why many want or need to count but it's just not for me.
My goals however have always been very simple and based on feeling comfortable in my jeans or a bikini. I did have a specific goal of getting under 20% body fat but the way I achieved it was anything other than specific. I have always managed to make slight alterations to my diet to lose fat or gain muscle but anyone that's been following me for a while knows it's been trial and error and I've had to adjust and readjust by trying things out and seeing how my body responds.
At the end of the day, we are all different - how we want to approach fat loss is highly individual but if you really want it and are consistent with positive change, the route you decide to take will get you there.

Was mich motiviert? MEIN "ALTES ICH"! 😎
Gott, wie oft hatte ich damals gezweifelt... Wie oft war ich kurz vorm aufgeben, weil mir nichts schnell genug ging 😫
Ich bin aber froh, dass ich irgendwann einfach aufgehΓΆrt habe, stΓ€ndig aufzugeben πŸ’₯
Denn genau ab da hat sich mein Leben verΓ€ndert! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ
Nein, durch Abnehmen verschwinden keine Probleme und das Leben wird auch nicht sofort anders und besser (leider πŸ˜…πŸ˜œ).
Aber eins ist Fakt: man fΓΌhlt sich 1000 mal wohler! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ Und wenn man sich wohl fΓΌhlt, zieht man automatisch mehr Positives ins Leben an πŸ™πŸ» ❗️Reines Abnehmen sollte nicht unbedingt ein Endziel sein. Man soll viel mehr nach "mehr Wohlbefinden" streben 🏁

Auf dem Bild links hatte ich bereits ca. 15 Kilo abgenommen. Das rechte Bild ist aktuell.
Six Pack ist zwar da allerdings fast nur morgens πŸ˜…. Aber ich fΓΌhle mich einfach nur super wohl so wie ich momentan bin πŸ™πŸ»
Und das ist das wichtigste!πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ Ich wΓΌnsche euch einen tollen Start in die neue Woche!

Bleibt gesund, bleibt aktiv! Eure Diana πŸ’‹

March ➑️ May πŸŽ‰ Hollaaaa for chin up progress!! 2 months of work has been paying off! So back in March, I felt like my chin up and pull up progress wasn't going anywhere, so I stopped relying on the pull up assist machine and put my focus on actually pulling at the pull up bar, thx to the advice of several pull up savvy friends. I could only do one really bad chin up to start- so I'd do one and then finish reps with a band around one knee (or around my foot to regress it further) and I alternated chin up and pull up practice several days a week (and still did other rows and pulling exercises as well). Every time I do them I always attempt doing them unassisted FIRST before adding the band. My workouts vary reps and sets, so sometimes I'm doing 4x6, or 3x10, or 2x16 etc- I've gradually been able to squeak out more unassisted pulls and I officially can do 4x6 of chin ups AND pull ups without the darn band!! Woohoo!!! This is momentous to me πŸ˜†πŸ™ŒπŸΌ The vid on the right was the 4th set (that I was supersetting with deadlifts) so I was friggin toast but I did it!!) FYI- chin ups are generally easier than pull ups since they utilize more of your biceps to help in the pull as well. I want to know what exercises are your nemesis right now?? What are you doing to improve them and get stronger??

I quit before I even started. Last week I had a strong lift of 3 @ 265lbs and today I was shooting for my goal of 1 RM at 300lbs. I started getting nervous about it last night. All day I was in my head and when it came time to pull I could hardly get 275 off the ground. The anger and disappointment got me good. I need to remember that I'm going to have good days and bad days. I still got good lifts in and I am getting stronger even if I have an off day. Being patient for success is the hardest lesson I am learning. #momswholift #deadlift #fail #lessonslearned #reallife #bepatient

In case you happen to see me walking today..it's not my swagger, yesterday was leg day and I'm sore πŸ˜… Penguin waddle day🐧 Happy Tuesday friends xM

Completed 20 min of HIIT cardio earlier during my workout. 45 second sprint/15 second rest at 7.6 is definitely my favorite kind of cardio. HIIT workouts are not only efficient, but they help boost your endurance, and burns more fat without losing muscle. #gym #gymrat #gymaddict #treadmill #cardio #hiit #workout #fit #fitness #fitlifestyle #fitmom #life #goals #gains #mondaymotivation #motivation #momswholift #selflove #endurance #dedication #runner #myfitnessjourney #newyearbetterme #myweightlossjourney #weightloss

I thought that once I was a stay at home Mom for the summer I'd have all this crazy amount of free time, but now I see that I have even less time than I did before. Made it to the gym today though!

πŸ’•πŸ’•If today wasn't your best day, wait your turn, we all get ours. When I'm feeling like it's just not my day, it's solace to get in the gym and just grind one out! Gym is good for what ails you!!! Today it was chest, arms-bi's and tri's. Added another plate to my bench press (don't ask it's not much kg πŸ˜‚) but it's gains. Skull crushers killed my tri's-feels so good! Followed up by some HIIT. Make yours count, you dope souls πŸ’•πŸ’•#mondaymotivation #fitspiration #fitnessmotivation #fitmom #fitness #fitnessjourney #fitfam #momswholift #fitover40 #gymmotivation #ladieswholift #strongwomen #strongnotskinny #thickandfit #chestday #armworkout #smallgains πŸ’•πŸ’•
