1 year apart👊🏼
96kg vs 93kg.
If you stick to one opinion/way of training, how will you ever improve?🤷🏻♂️
Last year, I pushed my body weight up way too high. Eat big to get big, so I thought. I didn’t take into consideration the importance of executing movements correctly, I didn’t think about the consumption of carbohydrates in the most effective way etc.
It’s so important to keep learning and improving. In the summer I worked under a great coach, I got to speak to people both face-to-face and online about different training methods/nutrition etc, I spend a lot of time learning from other people in the industry. Basically, I try my best to invest as much time as possible to improve.
Here’s two things i’d start doing tomorrow in a heartbeat⬇️
1. Set yourself a Long term goal ➡️ Give yourself plenty of time. There is no quick fix. If you’re serious about change, be realistic and understand that it can take time.
2. Invest in others ➡️ Cut through some of the BS out there, and you’ll are so many people out there who offer fantastic advice/guidance on a daily basis via many different social media platforms.
Yesterday, I fell victim to a habit of the old me: emotional eating/binging. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
I was dealing some stress and anxiety regarding personal matters, and what started as just wanting a glass of tracked wine to unwind resulted in a full on overeating episode and nearly half of a bottle of wine consumed. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
I did exactly what I tell all of you not to do: I beat myself up about it this morning. I’ve been full of guilt and regret, fearing that I’m not cut out for this reverse diet, for this career, and all kinds of other irrational things. But after talking to my amazing friend @gabriellacapfit, I’m feeling a lot better. She had to give me some tough love, tell me to quit obsessing over stupid things, and remind me that I’m doing well with this reverse — literally just on Saturday’s check-in @jmihalyfit increased my food intake which is a GOOD sign. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
I know I just made a post about struggles yesterday, but this is just where I’m at today and I vowed when I started this business/account and especially when I started the sport of bodybuilding that I’d always be 100% honest and transparent with my audience — even when it’s hard. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
Luckily, my convo with Gab took place as I was pulling into the gym and that is exactly the boost I needed to kill today’s glute/ham leg day. Ended up hitting some PR’s and increasing weight on everything else — so I suppose I at least put last night’s food to use, and the accomplishments today have me in a slightly better mindset now. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
Prepping for a competition is hard, physically and mentally — post-show is just as hard, if not harder, mentally. I’m learning everyday. Thanks for coming along for the ride, y’all ✌🏻
🔸POST SHOW UPDATE🔸

For this week’s meal prep, I made 2 different meals to mix it up a bit. One has shrimp, cauliflower rice, and green beans, and the other has chicken and broccoli spears. For these meals, I’ll eat bread or some other source of carbs on the side. What did you meal prep for this week?
Working on those sliding surfaces with my #rockpods after yesterday's leg workout.
Recovery is one of the most important part to your programing.
What are you doing for your recovery?
Using the rockpods allows you to tack down the underlying tissue to manipulate the fascia system to add mobility and help recovery process.
DM me to book in your next 30min or 60min FMT sessions.
Let’s talk about CrAvInGs (ahem- cravings🤪)
There is a ton of shite on the internet right now telling you to eat THIS when you’re craving THAT😑
You know which infographics I’m talking about🧐
I’ll probably be going against the grain on this one but my advice would be to JUST EAT THE FOOD YOU ARE CRAVING!😱😱
Chances are if you are craving ice cream for example and you eat something else in place of ice cream your craving isn’t going to go away...you’ll still be thinking of ice cream and you’ll prob reach for other snacks eat those...and then cave and eat the ice cream anyway after you’ve demolished everything else trying to put a band aid over your original craving.
Catch my drift?
As long as 80% of your foods are nutrient dense leave 20% for fun foods that way you can stay sane and still enjoy life while STILL making progress!
Thought this would be helpful for the holidayzzzzz coming up!
My go to treat is Oreos😍😍😍
What’s your fave fun food?
