Lmfao small ass weight but did my sprints cut in half today due to limited time and did biceps and tris. After, I did some deadlifts but instead of 70 I did 50 lbs (25 each side). Couldn't grip it well but then I remembered that I have to do one hand palm facing down and the other facing up to get a better grip. Been working on my form! Gonna do one more rep set this week!!! Summer 2017 body and booty gonna be looking 💯
Over the past week I’ve had a few compliments from people I haven’t seen for a while saying how good I’m looking… well I should hope so being 10kgs down from the beginning of the year. But the one thing I can’t get past is that people think what I’ve been doing over the past 3 months has been easy, that I haven’t had to sacrifice anything, when it’s been the complete opposite, I’ve had friends tell me I’m boring, I’ve missed events and weekend and evenings out and I’ve been putting in the work in the gym nearly every day. When people ask me what I’m doing on the weekend my answer is normally going to the gym, meal prep and resting (sounds boring right). The problem is we expect things to just happen for us, we expect that we can eat right 5/7 days a week and that it’ll all fall into place, that our goals will come true if we half arse, which for anyone who’s gone on a fat loss journey will know isn’t true. Sure there are some people out there that can do it, but they’re in the minority. For people who have struggled with their weight for years and years it has to become 110% of what you do, what you live for and that belief that if you put it all in, you’ll get where you want to be. Einstein said ‘Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results’ and this applies to everything we do in life. Fat loss included, if you’ve done the same thing for months on months and you haven’t seen results then why would you keep doing it? There’s a crazy amount of methods to get yourself moving, keep yourself active and get yourself the healthy body you deserve – but you’ve got to want it as bad as you want to breathe - that’s when you’ll be successful.
As most of you know, I struggle with leaning down my thick thighs, so my main focus last prep and this prep is to really lean them out. Pic on the left was the start of my prep last year (January 2016) and the pic on the left was my last check in with my coach @michelleifbbpro right before my last show (July 2016) Not sure what my legs measured at the beginning of my prep, but by the end of my prep they measured 19.5 inches. The start of this prep (December 2016) my legs were measuring 22 inches and they are currently measuring 20.5 inches so we are def making progress. Every cardio session, every training session, I give it my absolute best, pushing through every obstacle that gets in my way. Day in and day out I put action towards reaching my goal. I continue to stay persistent, and trust the process and I know that if I give it my all, that I will reach my goal of leaning my legs down. Excited to see what they will measure by the end of my prep this year. Happy Hump Day everyone! 🤗💪🏾🙌🏾💃🏾 #humpday#thickthighs#bestself#thatpreplife#nodaysoff#npc#npcbikini#handsomemuscle
"I am a soldier in the U.S. Army, and since returning to Buffalo, Balanced Body meals have helped me stick to clean eating and staying in shape. These meals have been a huge part of my fitness journey from the start. They taste great and keep me powering through my 5x a week workouts with Adam and Dan. I take them to workout with me every day and since then, I have seen a result in how I feel and how I look." - Bethany Joy If you have a success story, share it with us, and remember to get your orders in tonight for Sunday pickup!
