Weight Training VS Confidence ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ// I wanted to talk today about my personal confidence. Over the years and prior to my accident I lacked self confidence. I was always the shy girl, the follower, the girl that blended in and didn't ever want to stand out. ๐Ÿ‘ค I hated how I looked and would tear myself apart whenever I was in front of a mirror. I didn't LOVE myself. ๐Ÿ’”

Fitness is where my confidence started to grow. I had purchased @kayla_itsines "BBG EBOOK" in 2014 as a goal for my upcoming birthday. I was already into fitness using HIIT workouts and then feel in love with Kaylas program and #bbgcommunity. My confidence was growing! I completed that guide and honestly felt in the BEST shape of my life & had confidence for my 30th Birthday Celebration ๐ŸŽ‰- THEN literally a month later my accident happened.
-
Waking up to a changed body shook my confidence to the core. The Trauma I had to deal with brought on even more mental hurdles to now overcome. I went back to my old faithful @bbg_community and completed 4 rounds POST surgery! I was super proud of myself but something was missing this time. BBG was helping me with my fitness but all my confidence issues were still present - and even worse now with a 5 inch vertical scar down my tummy. ๐Ÿ˜ฃ
-
I decided this year to try Weight Training. Without knowing much about it, I figured it was time for a change and also wanted to educated myself more on the human body and effectively training it. Months into it I can say my personal confidence is growing more than EVER! I shock myself everyday with how much I can push myself and progress! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
Why Weight Training:
โ€ขIncreased Energy/EPOC - Like HIIT lifting consumes oxygen post workout. This means increased fat loss = increased energy โ€ขBone Health - as Females this is a HUGE reason. As we age we produce less estrogen which is needed for bone mass. Weight training can counter act that and help prevent osteoporosis! โ€ขCurves - Weight Training gives you the power to create curves. By growing my back and booty I am noticing I am finally achieving that hourglass look!! โณ

Group Meditation ๐Ÿ”ฎ// Local ladies this post is for you! Have any of you ever wanted to try meditation? Curious on what this practice can bring you? Here are some of my top reasons to include mindfulness meditation in your day:
1๏ธโƒฃEffect Rival for Antidepressants for Depression and Anxiety - This is my personal main reason. After my accident I was told I needed to take depression, anxiety and sleeping pills to combat my PTSD. This scared the CRAP ๐Ÿ’ฉ out of me!! So I dove into meditation instead!
2๏ธโƒฃDefault Mode Network (DMN) - Meditation has been found (Yale University's Study) to decrease activity in your brains network responsible for mind wondering and self referential thoughts. AKA Monkey Mind! ๐Ÿ’- For me personally this has been HUGE to switch off my racing thoughts and flashbacks from PTSD.
3๏ธโƒฃReduce Stress with Brain Cell Volume - Another study (Harvard) shows that regular mindfulness + meditation DECREASES brain cell volume which is responsible for fear, anxiety and STRESS. - By doing this daily I have been able to control my stress levels ALOT better which is key ๐Ÿ”‘ for my pancreas health! ----------------------------------------------
In the next few weeks I'm hoping to start launching my holistic workshops + colabs with local companies for events! I would LOVE for my first event to be a GROUP meditation! If this is something that interests you - Please comment below โฌ‡๏ธ And Stay tuned in joining me and other like minded ladies working towards living in the NOW! .

Dogs are life ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŽ€

Still got it โœŒ๐Ÿผ
I have been way less focused on aesthetics and extremely focused on my mental state and living an active lifestyle. When I got into the competition world, I forgot why I was into fitness in the first place. I forgot all about eating and training to be HEALTHY. All I cared about was making gains and having abs, but I didn't have a balanced life at all. I spent all my time in the gym and didn't do the things I love. Some people can balance competing and their hobbies, Im not one of those people. This is probably the happiest I've ever been. I'm eating a predominantly vegan diet and thriving. I'm working out frequently, but the gym isn't my life. I'm spending a lot more time outside, living life and being active. .

Body Scan aka PMR// Stressed? Have unreleased tension in your life? Then its time to try Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR) ๐Ÿค—
-
Body Scans are my favourite Meditation exercise! I truly find it helps me connect to my body and #myNOWmoment โœ…
-
Little bit of info on PMR;
In addition to relieving muscles pain, progressive muscle relaxation has been used by medical professionals to reduce symptoms of chronic pain, high blood pressure, sleep disturbances, and digestive problems! Using this technique will teach you more on distinguishing between a tense muscle and a relaxed muscle. This will help you notice when your muscles are beginning to tense in your normal daily life and how this relaxing technique can combat that! ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
-
To start; โ€ขClose your eyes and let your body hang loose. โ€ขTake a few deep breaths and try and clear your mind of any distractions. โ€ขThroughout this exercise โ€“ keep your focus on your body. If you find your mind wandering โ€“ notice it and bring your focus back to your body. ๐Ÿ’—

Check my blog post for the FULL breakdown and list of body parts and how to tense and relax them! FULL video is on blog as well! Link in Bio! ----------------------------------------------------
