  • This is me in my natural habitat enjoying the sun with friends and a cocktail.
.✨
I do however regularly like to take 6-8 weeks off drinking alcohol 🍷 to focus on my body composition, health and performance goals. (Currently doing this) .
.✨
Could I drink alcohol and still get results? yes of course its possible..... But it’s not just the calorie content of alcohol that has an effect on health and fitness goals. .
.✨
It’s the fast food we eat on the day and day after we drink, it’s the lack of motivation to train and also the negative thoughts we have regarding this. Alcohol does cause a real slump the day after and if your not careful the only way out of that can be more alcohol .
.✨
So to avoid the latter here are 👉🏼 my TOP TIPS if you do want to drink alcohol whilst working towards your fitness goals .
.✨
1. Drink water 💦 throughout the day before you start drinking. Let’s face it with the best intentions your not gonna drink water when you’re out getting lashed.
2. Watch 👀 what you eat 🍔 the next day, don’t use a hangover as an excuse to ruin the whole week by consuming too much shitty food.
3. Exercise 💪🏼 in the morning before you are going out, this way you will only miss one day training instead of two (not many people can train with a hangover) 
4. If your out enjoy it! 💃🏻🕺🏼 But don’t let it destroy the whole week 🙅🏻‍♀️
5. Love you bye 👋🏼✌🏼 .

  • Unconditional love.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
THAT is what this dog has taught me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Getting a husky puppy at the ripe age of 18 probably wasn’t the best choice, with two full time jobs and no help.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But let’s just say 4 years later when I think of the day I have to part ways with Red, it brings tears to my eyes.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It will happen one day.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hopefully not till many many years from now.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
But until then I promise to give this dog the best, most deserving life a dog can have.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I will always put him first over anything.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I was 18 and wanted to occupy my time with parties and friends, that was a hard concept to grab.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now it’s second nature.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have no idea why God blessed me with this beautiful soul but I’m forever filled with joy that He did.

  • When your butter compartment of your fridge is always stocked with insulin and Ningxia you know you can take on anything with a dead pancreas 🙌🏻 ⁣
⠀⠀⁣ My immune system sucks. I usually catch everything during the school year. This year I’ve been taking Ningxia Red consistently and I haven’t caught a cold or had to call in sick at all this year so far. #winning

  • Goals. How many of us have them? Lord knows I do. Sometimes too many at once I think. But I want to talk about the power of articulating, envisioning, recording, sharing goals, and, in particular, visualizing them regularly. So for over two years, I’ve had a photo over my desk at eye level. It was one of my ideal physique images. I look at that ideal back almost every day as I work on my Becoming. As I’ve gotten smaller, I still struggle with reconciling my new physical form with the image of the old me in my head and battling negative, self-defeating thinking. 
During one of these dark spirals, my husband suggested that I take a comparison photo to see how I was tracking against my physique goal. The result of this indulgence blew me away. Yes of course I was excited about the progress I’ve made physically. But what really got me was the power of the goal setting process and how it influences one’s responsibility, commitment, and consistency. 
This experience also underscored the importance of creating a circle of accountability, support, and CELEBRATION. Because sometimes when you’re stuck in the weeds, your circle is seeing your bigger, original view - and reminds you of that vision you had. To say I’m pumped to keep going now is an understatement. If you are struggling on setting a goal and figuring out the first steps - even small steps - to get started toward it, I’m happy to chat. I’m also happy to share what worked for me. Happy Monday, friends! Here’s to us crushing the crap outta this week!

  • TIP 1 on why you should not rush your fat loss goals.
.
Did you get fat quick or over a long period of time? Let's think about it logically, would it make physiological or survival sense for us to lose fat really quickly? No! Many forget that we are million year old machines and are pretty good at surviving! We would look at this as a positive if we still lived on the Savannah.
.
Starting your diet.
.
The first week of your dieting efforts has you losing a combination of fat, water and glycogen (carb stores in muscle) so you are not blasting fat away miraculously.
.
If you lose anything above 2-4 pounds in your first week (depending on the size of the human) the likelihood is very high that the rest is everything except FAT.
.
Many companies like you to think that this is all FAT and that you have had a great start, but it clearly is not all fat (3,500 calories in one pound of fat). Yes it gives you a psychological boost but then the person thinks this is achievable every week and soon becomes disappointed!
.
Aim for a goal of 1-3 pounds per week. Why? Because this is maintainable every week along side your hectic schedule. Choose a number or a way of eating/training that is maintainable for the long term and avoid the heavy CRASH, otherwise it will lead you to revert right back to where you started, or worse further back!

  • Let’s debunk this myth right now: females will not get “bulky” from lifting weights and “tone” is not a thing.
.
Here’s why:
1️⃣ Strength training helps reduce body fat and increase lean weight (yes, you burn calories by strength training). These changes can slightly increase overall body weight, since lean body mass weighs more than fat. HOWEVER, strength training results in STRENGTH gains, no major changes in body girth. Unless females are participating in high volume training (known as hypertrophy -- think of female bodybuilders), will they see an increase in limb circumference. But for young female athletes, this is not the case because we’re not building bodybuilders, we’re building athletes.
.
2️⃣ Women have fewer muscle fibers than men. Women’s muscle fibers are also smaller than men. This fact about muscles should eliminate any fear of female’s looking like men because of strength training.
.
3️⃣ Women do not have enough or the amount of testosterone in their body compared to men (women have higher estrogen levels). This hormonal difference means that it would take a very concentrated effort for women to build the kind of “bulk” and muscle thickness that they fear.
.
4️⃣ On a side note: Lifting light weights won’t make you better. Female athletes need to train at intensities high enough to cause adaptation in bone, muscle, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. “When exercise provides insufficient stimulus, physiological benefits may be minimal.” It is called progressive overload: the body must be overloaded for an adaption to occur. This means lifting light weights won’t get you there.
