10 years ago I had lost a significant amount of weight(post baby) and ended up just looking slim and untoned. The competing bug came over me and I decided to do my first show. This was my transformation between deciding and stage 👠 It took me 12 weeks.
I went on to do 12 competitions over the last 10 years. Something I am very proud of. I have learnt so much from competing and I wouldn’t change it for anything but I am enjoying life, training, my children and having a bit of balance in my life.... I still train just as hard but I don’t feel I need to kill myself to stay in shape.
These pics remind me that you can do anything you set your mind on⭐️
SWIPE RIGHT ➡️➡️➡️ to see some of the workouts I did today. My main dude @jjcedano killed a workout with me, and then hooked me up with some Hollywood filming for some of these clips 🎥 -
All of these were filmed post workout, and today was back/rear delta/core so if it looks like I’m breaking form, I probably am 😅 -
Today’s workout consisted of:
• Pull Ups (alternating grips between sets
• Bent Over Rows
• V Grip Lat Pulldown superset w/ straight arm rope pull downs
• Single Arm Dumbbell Row superset w/ Barbell Row
• Rack Pulls superset w/ barbell shrugs
• Kneeling Rope Pulls superset w/ Bent Over Dumbbell Reverse Fly
• Barbell Curl super set w/ single arm Cable Curl
• Leg Raises
• Reverse Curl
• Banded Sledgehammer Swings
• Accordion Crunches
• Kneeling and Standing V Grip Cable Crunches
Super High Volume for another 4 weeks, and then I’m going into low volume with high weight 😶😶😶 -
Lets get it! 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽
Oh hey there! 😜 Just wanted to drop by your feed and say hey! Honestly my weight loss has brought me more confidence! I’m starting to take more pictures of myself but I always looks like a mess since I’m always busy 🤪 I hope everyone is enjoying their night! Tomorrow is Friday!!!!
Getting close to my 2 year transformation in march.
A lot has changed mentally and physically(50lb), I've loved every minute of work, time, sweat, and pain ive put into it. I cant wait to see where it takes me.
Suuuper proud of this! Headstands have been a big challenge for me for sometime..
I would always see these amazing yogis whip into a head or handstand with seemingly no trouble at all and I would try to do it and just could not! Partially because of the fear I have of falling g over upside down. But the biggest reason? Because I was not practicing them with regularity...
I definitely know better than to look at a posture or fitness exercise and think that I should be able to do it instantaneously. Regardless of how seamlessly an asana or exercise is performed, theres is always countless hours of practice and hard work and failed attempts that go into it. I know that. I've been on the other side of that. But my mind would always go there.. I've started to practice my yoga more regularly and I am already seeing so many positives! My muscle memory is chiming in and flexibility is coming back and my spine is much happier.
Along with all that? My headstand!! I'm still not 100% brave enough to extend my legs all the time and my form will need some tweaking, but I am able to get up into and hold for longer and longer! I have gotten my legs fully extended a couple times and that was exhilarating!
It has been very humbling returning to my practice but that in itself is a huge win. We all need that reminder sometimes. We ALL start somewhere. And every journey is different. Appreciate all your hard work and remember that everyone and everyBody is different and the things that go into one person's experience and results, won't be the same for you.
