You can be in recovery for a variety of struggles. Post the date below that you began to face these struggles and things started to change. For some people things may get “worse” before they get better. That is okay and sometimes part of the process. Stick with it. Continue to grow into the person you where meant to be and let nothing stand in your way. Love you guys.
Challenge is the pathway to engagement & progress in our lives. But not all challenges are created equal. Some challenges make us feel alive, engaged, connected & fulfilled. Others simply overwhelm us. Knowing the difference as you set bigger & bolder challenges for yourself is critical to your sanity, success & satisfaction...✌️
Trap bar incline bench row. Nice vadiation actually 🤔. Get good shoulder retractionq with the higher handles. Moreso than a normal bar. Neutral grip nice too. Probably a little more rear delt than lat involvement...
These certificates represent a small part of why I don't give up. This is my 5th year competing and the 2nd with USPA. The last 5 years have been hell. I've had my life completely shaken up, I've lost everything I physically own, moved away from my family, had health scares and my mental health has been failing. But lifting, friends (old and new) and family have helped me pull through. These remind me that I am powerful and resilient, even on my bad days. I lift to live, and live to lift.
I now carry reusable bamboo utensils with me in my bag to avoid using plastic cutlery when i eat out.
As well as reusable, biodegradable beeswax based food wraps to avoid aluminum foil and plastic wrap.
I did buy stainless steel straws off amazon but don't remeber if they arrived or not to be honest.
Also want to get a reusable bottle. It is time to CHANGE

I was scrolling down my feed and decided that I had to participate. I hit arms and legs this morning. What did you hit? 💪🏼👊🏼
PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION. ———————————————————
I remember gaining this mindset early on in my recovery. I started feeling invigorated each time I said “YES” to myself and my well-being. Through that, I realized how powerful I truly was in my own life. I have the power to choose ME over temptations and pressure.

Have you been told squatting tremendous weight like Ray Williams here will break your spine? Let’s debunk this myth.🥊👇🏼 .
You see, the vertebrae of your spine aren’t just solid bone. If you sawed one in half you’d actually see a very intricate network of sponge-like struts that branch throughout and connect together called trabecular bone. This complex arrangement creates a stiff framework to support the bone, allowing it to bear a ton of weight and resist being crushed by compressive loads🏋🏼♀️ .
When you squat heavy all the time, you can develop tiny micro fractures in the bone. Butt if these heavy training sessions are coupled with adequate recovery the bones of your body can adapt just like muscles and replace this area with even stronger thicker bone (almost like a callus).👍🏼 .
This is why research has shown elite powerlifters like Ray (who experience compressive forces on their spine of up to 16 times their bodyweight as they squat tremendous weight year after year) are able to have some of the highest density vertebral bones ever seen in humans. It’s all about the combination of good technique along with proper programming of lifting and recovery.🙌🏼
Big shout out to @optimusprime_334 for being today’s athlete model & to @3d4medical With the Complete Anatomy app for the visual of the body🙏🏼

With mastering comes knowledge, with knowledge comes straight. 5D is the shit people, but when you start to time travel from 5D up every dimension past present and future #raw#drugfree that's a Divine Galactic Intervention. So the hardest thing to do is to change the world, why is that. Well it's very hard to tell people they've been wrong all the way or that there is more to come that you don’t see it. You see, even the speed of light speeds in waves, in 3th and 4th dimensions we live in a linear reality, a box. So I'm not telling you to change, I'm telling you that I want to change the things I can. Exit the Earthly Maze and welcome to a new 5D vision #virtualreality#newearth @ctomorrowseries

————————————————————— A common problem in the world is that people think that fats make you fat. This is not true. Fats are essential to your health and your body uses them for fuel. Check out this repost @meowmeix that outlines some healthy ways to get fad into your diet. 💪🏼 💪🏼👊🏼
