Come here let me show you 😏 lol Don't mind me just joking around for the day #letmepickyouup #whyilift #whyiliftweights #fitness #gym

I haven’t publicly talked about the real reason I started lifting weights. The reason that kept me coming back day after day to train. It was grief. A dark fog pulled back the curtains and turned my world upside down. Every day I cared for my partner during a dark time and every day I went to the gym. I needed to be a care giver and unfurl my own pain and see to disinfecting my wounds. I wasn’t stable enough to sit at a desk for 8 hours a day and smile at stressed out undergrads. I was so overwhelmed. ⠀

Grief is a lot of waiting around and remembering to eat. Grief is also white hot rage encased in guilt and shame. I was so fucking mad. I had never felt such acute anger. My anger was classic text book even. Mad at myself for not knowing what to do and mad at the unfairness of life. I was mad at everyone. The only thing that seemed to ease my complete discomfort was lifting heavy and listening to heavy metal. It all had to be heavy. A driving drum beat and the sound of my own guttural screams was oddly soothing. Being able to drop the bar, grunt, and make myself bigger was the salve I desperately needed. ⠀

Since then darkness, depression, and trauma have visited my inner and outer circles of community. Death and suffering have visited us on the national and international stage. September is bursting at the seams with haunting memories and painful anniversaries. I return to the gym to remind me that I am very much alive. I watch my muscles strain against the weight of the barbell and I remember that I’m still here. I have to keep fighting to hold back the tides of a society hell bent on imploding. This fall let’s lift heavy together, break glassware and yell at the top of our lungs. I need you to remind me to fight and I’ll remind you.

Whelp...we might have went over the luggage limit. #whyiliftweights #balibound #ontonewadventures #wanderlust

#Aboutlastnight #escalada #adaptacao #whyiliftweights De encontro ao #treinooutdoor e adaptação ao meio... Se hoje arrisco experimentar é pq tlvz tenha maior confiança melhor condição física (que dá alguma noção corporal) e também motivação.. Cada desporto tem a sua especificidade e como tal nunca estamos completos... Há uma transferência de competências? Sim. Mas nada como treinar X para ser bom em X. Sera caso para dizer.. Cada macaco no seu galho? Hmm

More like the first minute but ok

Because sometimes you just need to look at a very unflattering picture of yourself to see how far you have come and to appreciate where you are right now.
Currently feeling kinda #stuck but happy I'm not going backwards.
On the left is from last Saturday (8/13/16) and the one on the right is from November 2016 (Thanksgiving). There's only about a 15lb difference between the two pictures. #whyiliftweights

My loving husband @rocky.jacchino knows how much i love chocolate, and loves to treat me with it every chance he gets....On one hand, I wonder why I can't lose any more weight....on the other, sometimes a girl just needs to indulge in a chocolate treat! #benandjerrys #chocolatefudge #browniebatter #chocolateaddiction #chocolatelover #doesntfitmymacros #whyiliftweights #whyiworkout

So I am not gonna lie I really didn't want to work out today. I had a long day and exhausting day at work and all I really wanted to do was cuddle up on the couch with my pup but I forced myself to just get in my gear and go. I am glad I did. Today I did an upper body work out and the gym was practically empty. I felt good once I started and forced myself to lift heavier. I can tell I am getting strong and heading in the direction I want to be if I just keep going.
I have to remind myself why I started, not only do I get stronger every day but this is the place I can rid my body of that work stess. #findingbalance #armday
