One year ago, this picture would have made me cry.
This is my body right now.
It's not perfect by the standards of patriarchal society - but it's a body that has carried me through countless wins, losses, and lots of naps.
This body has endured eating disorders, surgeries, miscarriage, sexual assault, hate, cruelty, roller derby and weight lifting. It's been so incredibly kind to me, even when I wasn't nice back to it. It's moved me to and from countries (Macedonia, Australia, USA and more) and has survived every challenge that was thrown at it.
I wasn't planning on posting this, but my darling @feliiiciia told me that the world needs to see dem legs that created two PRs last week. And her support and encouragement made me think - we need to see more real bodies. I am not ashamed, I am not afraid, and I refuse to cover up just because it is expected in current society. I proudly display this body. You should do the same with yours.

Woohoo! My second #powerlifting meet is in the books! Proud of myself for setting three #competition #PRs, but sad I missed all my 3rd attempts 😬 Super proud of myself for cutting 10kg and still beating my numbers for squat & DL from my Jan meet (and bench was only down 2.5kg, so that's not tooooo bad). Today I weighed in at 55.8kg so had no problem meeting #u57kg weight class ☺️
.
Totaled: 260kg (added 10kg to my total from my last meet in Jan!)
Wilks score: 307 (up 44 points from my last meet!) 😲 wow! That's a big improvement... I didn't realize that until just now!
.
#deadlift
1st attempt : 105kg βšͺ️βšͺ️βšͺ️
2nd attempt : 110kg βšͺ️βšͺ️βšͺ️ (comp PR) I'm really pleased I made this lift because I was not paying attention at all and was waiting for a command to lift that doesn't exist, thank goodness the head judge was like "whenever you're ready", otherwise I would have just stood there for my full minute πŸ˜‚
3rd attempt : 115 πŸ”΄πŸ”΄πŸ”΄ (fail) the bar got away from me on this one. I don't know why I lose it on my 3rd attempt for squat & DL. So frustrating! 😀

We totally forgot to take a photo with my cheering squad πŸ˜₯ but I'm so thankful that so many of my friends and family came down to @gleasonperformance to watch me lift! 😊 πŸ€—

So glad I chose to compete with #usapl #usaplct! This meet was so amazingly well organized and professional! Can't wait to compete again! .

Six months of hard work, focus & dedication! πŸ’ͺπŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈπŸ€“ So excited that I added 44 points to my #wilks score from my last comp in Jan (in Bangkok): from 263 to 307! .
.
Yesterday marked the culmination of three major goals: .
1️⃣ Finishing my first formal cut, of almost 10kg of bodyweight (64.8kg to 55.8kg)
.
2️⃣ Gaining strength and adding 10kg to my total (250kg to 260kg)
.
3️⃣ Competing in my first US powerlifting completion with #usapl #usaplct (as an #u57kg lifter)
.
.
I am so in love 😍 with competing! Time for a little break from heavy lifts and then back at it for another comp in Jan (back in Bangkok πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­ with #thailandpowerliftingalliance)

Bridge
Bridges are an excellent movement for spine strength and flexibility. But bridges are hard. And for anyone who has ever had back pain or never done this movement before bridges can be scary.
.
Starting at the hands a bridge requires good flexibility in the wrists, good shoulder flexibility and the ability to reach overhead without also arching your back. You also need to be able to make a smooth curve with your spine rather than hinging at certain points. Finally you want to be able to extend your hips without arching your lower back.
.
There is so much stuff going on! To get you started this week, I'll be looking at some drills to warm-up and build the awareness that you need to get in a good position as well as some exercise to get you started. Then I'll look at some of the fun things that you do using your new found flexibility.

Thankful that @mechanomage joined me on my run tonight! Added a lot more than anticipated to my mileage and my pacing and breathing are starting to set in! I went from not hitting any of my exercise goals, to surpassing all of them. 😁 Maybe i'll start liking running soon?? (please???) #fitness #running #redditxxfitness #coupleswhoruntogether #boyshavecooties

Today's post featuring the picture that made me hit the gym and start to change. Just as a reminder, a lot can and will change in 2 years. -

July 5k: kid edition! When I found this fakey Color Run while combing for 5ks that fit into my schedule, they were having a "kids run free" promotion. Would've been nice if the $7/each registration fee was waived too, but whatever. All 3 of my kids wanted to run it, and they did okay, considering that it was over 90 and sooooo exposed. The event felt a little slimy and wasn't particularly well-organized, and also I forgot to turn my Garmin on (not that I expected an amazing pace), but the kids ran one lap (1.6 miles) and then I ran the second to get to 3.1, and then my husband delivered amazing giant cold bottles of water to us as soon as we finished. I'm proud of them for doing it!

Closing out my diary on a very exciting day!!! In: BALT with smart life faux bacon (my son calls it "makin'"!) and a hash brown. Venti starbucks tea because the barista misheard me and I'm too wimpy to go back and request a smaller size. A lot of chips and sweet tea (not pictured) with half of this plate of veggie enchiladas and Mexican rice.

Enchanted trails 🌿#runnersofthewild

This is a bit of a "did I actually wear a crop and shorts to the gym" moment, and also a "holy fuck, I've only had six days off leg work, how did I forget to squat" moment.
Your girl went back to do very light pause squats, 4x8 at 135lb, without a belt or knee sleeves, plus deadlifts at the same weight. And it near killed me. So I got disheartened.
But then I remembered - lady, you lifted a fuckton of weight on the weekend. Your body is recovering. Be kind to it.
As a side note - y'know how I say I'm all quads, hips, ass, tits and shoulders? Yeah. This pic proves it.

This was supposed to be a 5 mile run, but then I got lost and spent almost a mile finding my way back.

Honestly though, this run was amazing. The weather was perfect. There were hills, but I never felt fatigued (okay, maybe the first half mile), and I easily could have gone for several miles more. Just the best frickin' run I've had in a while. πŸ‘Œ

That happy but you can't tell face when previously heavy weights are now working sets πŸ™Œ .

Side note - I never understood the hype behind Fleo shorts UNTIL NOW FAM 😍 like two angles caressing my glutes πŸ‘Ό

I did my first ever regular deadlift today! #formcheck welcome because I'm sure it needs some work, but it was surprisingly quite a bit easier than I expected? Then I tried a couple sumo deadlifts and they were approximately 90% harder and I definitely couldn't confidently pull 3 in a row at this weight. Conveniently, my bodyweight is the same as the bar and two plates, so I can finally BW something while I wait for bench and squat to catch up.

The run tonight was unexpectedly faster than the last several have been. Part of it was probably the warm up of going to the gym first, but I think the other part was that it was marginally cooler and a ton breezier than it has been. Tomorrow is a 5 mile run, once again to a local brewery. 🍺

It's early but I feel pretty confident closing out my food diary for the day! I ate way too much for lunch and my husband isn't coming home until 8, so I'm definitely not going to bother with dinner lol. In: jimmy johns veggie club and chips. Milky tea.
Out: walk with my son around the lake

Training last week was all about having fun so i decided to test how much weight i could add to my chinup. I managed to do 8.75kg. Good progress for someone who couldn't do a single chinup 12 months ago.

Today's post featuring the picture that made me hit the gym and start to change. Just as a reminder, a lot can and will change in 2 years. -
