Worst video quality ever........ Didn’t record this lift yesterday but thankful for security cameras 😉
NEW REP PR ........ again 😁
230x13 💪🏼 ..... definitely feeling those today!
Feeling stronger in my deadlifts this prep, weaker in my squat, and same with my bench...
ONLY 6 weeks left 😱
This one snuck up on me FAST like!!
I’ve had a lot going on in my personal and family life that time has gotten away from me. Workouts going ok, other than that my focus isn’t where it should be.
I’m still going to compete on November 3rd.... but it’s time for a break after that... I need to shift focus just a little bit, regain some mental clarity. After November I probably won’t compete again until Summer of 2019! Just a little break... can’t keep me away for good!!!
But it’s needed!!!
Ready to give as much focus as I can to prep over the next 6 weeks and see how things go!!
All you can sometimes is take things day by day and give your focus to where it is needed the most!!
Thurs. morning work. Taking time for doing something I love...which I think counts as self love too. I've struggled with depression for the last several years. And like any mental illness it's a complicated mess of a lot of things. My ability to comprehend and my deep cynicism don't help this situation. Lately I've been making efforts to push back against the cloud of dread and uncertainty that fills the sky of modern life. And I guess what that looks like for me is taking time to listen to music and DJ. Even though my mind screams at the beginning that it isn't productive. Or that I could be doing this or that. Its something I have always enjoyed. It brings me a kind of peace. These thoughts lead to other appreciations. My health, my home, my equipment, my children, my loving partner, a job where I can make my own hours and stay home on a Thursday morning. I start to realize I'm swimming in a sea of potential and priviledge that so many don't have. I'm humbled by the opportunity of this round of conscious being. Maybe I'm just riding a manic high....and everything I experience is some point on the wave of highs and lows. I'd like to think it's more than that. Breaking everything into a diagnosis robs me of the spontaneity of life. I'm going to keep grinding. I'm going to let that little rebellious shit of a kid inside me continue to play. Today I feel good and I love myself. And that in itself is a gift. Thank you.

R U OK?
Asking this question & starting the conversation could change a life. You don't need to have all the answers...sometimes just listening is the answer.
Studies have suggested that up to 70% of women whose babies spend time in the NICU experience some degree of postpartum depression, while up to 1/4 may experience symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). And it's not surprising - the foreign environment, anxiety, hormones, exhaustion, isolation, separation from baby, fear, and lack of sleep & good food are just a few of the reasons NICU parents are at such a high risk of developing postpartum mood issues. “When your baby can die from a cold, that makes the world a very scary place.” And the effects of this can continue years after leaving the NICU. One Mum said "everyone asked about my baby and no one asked about me" — that’s atrocious. That is not OK. There needs to be better screening for NICU parents and education given to families to understand what is a 'normal' and 'abnormal' response to having a premature baby.
But today, if you're not feeling ok, please reach out to your nurses, doctor, social worker, partner, or me. It's ok to not be ok...we are here for you. And if you know a Mum with a baby in NICU, I ask that today you ask her how SHE is doing, instead of her baby. This community needs each other, and my inbox is always open ❤
When you think about it, makes sense. We generally surround ourselves with similar people, who like the same things, same music, talk the same way, share so much in common. But that just breeds complacent behavior. Family is to support you, your friends are to drive you. Keep people close that are different, won’t take your bullshit, challenge your expectations of failure. I have been fortunate with an incredibly horrid year to have those people in my life to fight the status quo, make me see the things in myself I never will. I firmly believe the only reason they do, are so good to me, and push me everyday is because we are completely different. Desire the interesting, seek it, do not accept anything less. #feelingok#gotthis#sunday#friends#bestfriends#love#growth#inspired
As the result about the Colonoscopy examination is...."I Am Ok".
Everything was normal & I just need to eat more to gain some weight that I lost from that day(Aug 27th).
Right now I'm currently waiting for my medicines for my seizure....even though the queue up line until now is long, but lucky to made it on time before I ended up waiting even more longer. *Still wonder why is it so many people today though…🤔*
