TAG/SHARE WITH SOMEONE THAT NEEDS TO READ THIS!! —Fluctuations of Weight— Everyone needs a mound of nachos here and there right?! 😂🙌 One of these many things I often talk about is a “Certain” bodyweight/number should be an individuals goal towards their physique. Well Why Not?! 🌮🌮 Contrary to belief, fat loss is and never be Linear! I tell my clients to expect that number to move up and down each day! Wanna know why?! Because we are humans, not robots! So what causes the weight fluctuations, Gil? 🌯🌯 Maybe you ate a late dinner, maybe you consumed more fiber than normal the night before, maybe your day was filled with more sodium than normal, maybe you had more/less water than the usual, maybe you are getting sick, maybe you are having a few “female problems” (great affects weights),maybe you work up earlier than normal, or maybe you tip-toed on the scale in a way that it did not recognize! See the trend here?? 🍤🍤 Which is why I think weighing in only ONCE per week is absolutely irrelevant. You receive data for one day. So how can we take data on your weight from only 4 weigh-ins out of a month? Exactly, we can not! For example, say you weighed in at 160lbs. one morning. The following week you weigh in consistently at 157 all the way up till when we check in. Then Boom, 160 is back on the scale! Maybe you had a poor night of sleep, maybe you ate later—Just know THAT NUMBER DOES NOT DICTATE YOUR PROGRESS! 🍕🍕 You will have days where you weigh heavier than others, then all of a sudden you have that day where it all “SWOOSHES” away and you just hit a new low weigh in!

My own #transformationtuesday ... From working out on and off following dvds at home and dieting on and off-- to doing my own at home hiit workouts consistently (yet made mistakes with diet--essentially eating too strict and in a caloric deficit for too long a period) -- to working out consistently (gym) and eating a balanced diet (flexible dieting) fueling my body the right amount of food based around my goals. It takes time. It takes being CONSISTENT. You may hit some bumps in the road, you may mess up and that's okay. The important thing is to always remember why you are doing what you're doing and to get back on it. #lorisilvafitness
Thought I'd do a different post to show you some ~new~ things. Obvi the halo top isn't new (or vegan), I eat that like every day. On the right, however, is a cool vegan moose I tried for the first time last night. Made with firm tofu, cocoa power, honey all blended together and refrigerated and although it may sound funky, it was pretty good. Just a little proof that vegan deserts aren't just fruit and can be super dense and high in protein. . . Different note, I've been doing a lot of running lately, and while some people thrive off of running many miles a day, I don't. Switched up my gym workout today to give some love to equipment that isn't the treadmill. And damn I'm sore. (Workout in comments)
Shoulders and Tricep workout where we're looking for size Neutral Press - 5x12 Cable Lat Raise (Behind the back) - 5x10 Bent Over Rear Delt Raise - 4x12 Front Raise OverHeard - 4x12 Skullcrusher - 6x6 Tate Press - 4x12 Bar Tricep Ext - 4x12 Overhead Ext - 5x8 When we're trying to add size it's great to hit hypertrophy (muscle failure) each set at or around the rep range listed. Make sure those last few reps are TOUGH!! If you give it a shot either tag us @truewarriorwithin or reach out and let us know how it worked for your program!!
The moment you realize your trainer calls it a "crazy set" you know you're in for it 😳😬 Felt soooooo damn good to be back at working out after a much needed hiatus to refocus my goals 💪🏻💪🏻 😅Worked those and chest followed by some much hated cardio 😝😝😝

Get at firstname.lastname@example.org for online plans or leave your email in the comments. It's time to unapologetically create your best body!
Yep and it comes from experience. Making the mistakes, watching others, doing it till we didn't get it wrong. Even when you try to teach some listen, said me some don't. Sometimes we have to put our "know it all" or "I know better" attitudes to the side and listen-- be patient and do the work. #TransformationTuesday
No allergens, easy on digestive system... Sweet potato chip, chopped turkey bacon crusted Chicken breast. So simple and so flavorful! Place two thawed chicken breasts in a Pyrex dish, cup crushed sweet potato chips (the clean kind), with chopped turkey bacon 🥓, with whatever veggies you want in the dish gathered around the chicken. I used parsnips, celery and mushrooms. Would be great with butternut squash or whatever hearty veggie you want. I added about 1/4 cup coconut milk on top of this with some olive oil drizzled on top. With salt and onion powder. Stick it in the oven at 375 and bake until parsnips are tender. About 30 minutes. Believe it or not, the right kind of bacon is good for you ;-) I added a few drops of my beet ketchup to add some more sweetness and it was delicious! 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼 #nutrition#allergyfree#healthfood

[Training] Mid-day stretch with my little buddy 🐶. My goal has been to incorporate at least 10 mins of stretching and mobility work every day. I always ask my clients to stretch, but I know how easy it is to skip at the end of a tough workout. I now ensure that it's included IN their training plan.
Rome wasn't built in a day, babes 🖤 Make some small goals and take everyday for the opportunity to better yourself in one way, or another. There is no standard you need to adhere to but your own, and even then, don't be so hard on yourself. #SelfLoveWins
