MAX TEST WEEK 😬 (ignore the awful quality... why 🤨)
So after my first strength build up written by my incredibly talented boyfriend @chrisgrahamstrengthcoach its time to test my maxes again.
Monday was squats, full depth, with a pause, no belt 💪🏻🙃
Before this build up i squatted 60kg x5 with good depth and max was 80kg
1st 85kg +5kg up to 110kg 🤢 (its okay to fail)
Deadlifts tomorrow and i cant wait 😍
I left it to the professionals... and they didn't disappoint😁
The truth is... our children are our best reminders that there is so much right still left in this world. It's up to us to seek it, fight for it, and live it!!!!
They were sent to rake the leaves... it did my heart proud when I went to check on the progress and found this!!! Yes, they were sent to do a job (which they eventually finished), but they were drawn in by the allure of a leaf pile (who can blame them?)... and they indulged. I was instantly laughing, smiling and beaming as they reminded me, they are kids and right now, that's what they deserve to be. This is why, I must fight for them. We must fight for them! THEY want so much good for this world, and sooner than later they'll come to realize they are in a world that does not always want good for them, and that's not okay! They are kids and did what kids do. They are simply beautiful, kind- hearted, strong, smart, lovable young boys. They are real. They are here and deserving of love and respect. Thank you again boys for being my constant reminders...

Yesterday I hit like on a post another mama shared on her page and this morning I woke up to a private message from a woman I have never met or spoken to. After telling me she noticed I hit like on this particular post, she continued with a long message making sure I knew how horrible a mother I am for agreeing with the post and how terrible my kids will turn out for supporting what this mama shared. Here’s the thing ladies, giving our opinion when it is asked is one thing, but boldly expressing negativity when one mama supports another mama who found the courage to post a piece of her heart for total strangers to read is something completely different. A mothers heart is this insane blend of sensitive and strong. We are all trying to figure out this intense calling of motherhood one day at a time, sometimes one hour at a time. I don't know a mom out there who doesn't already beat herself up with doubt and fear and guilt when it comes to raising her tiny arrows, so why choose to feed her insecurities? It should not be this hard for women to build each other up. No knocking down of another mama is ever going to make you feel good, I can say that with complete sincerity and honesty. Bashing someone's parenting style is really just revealing a weakness in your own heart. What works best for you is not necessarily what will work best for another mother. Heck, what works best for your first babe may not necessarily work well for your second baby. That's motherhood! It's messy and magical and exhausting and wonderful all smudged together. No one has all the answers so for the love of all things motherhood start encouraging each other people! Build bridges, don't burn them! Ok, rant over.😉
