Two miles with my lower back still cramping confirmed my tentative plan to drop the third day of lifting this week, move the second day to Sunday, and give myself three days without lifting before my 10k on Saturday.
It's a puzzling thing, though - my back feels fine while lifting and fine while walking and I took four Ibuprofen before the run to rule out excessive inflammation, so I'm not sure what's going on. I do still have some muscle relaxers left from when I first injured it, but those make me feel like a fucking moron for 18 hours after I take them so I'd rather not resort to that. It does take a mile to start cramping up, so I guess I can do a walk/run pattern on Saturday if things aren't improved by then.
Also, this is the second day in a row that I stretched without the app! I've done the 5 minute routines enough time to cherry pick the better stretches and do them on my own, like some sort of functional adult.
Overhead lighting was nicer than usual in my room tonight so I spent probably 5 minutes flexing from different angles. Imagine that, if you work out shoulders, your shoulders start showing up when you flex. I could stand to do more curls, though. 💪
Pernah gak sih udah makan banyak, nyemil macem2, minum susu tiap hari juga tapi berat badan masih tetep segitu2 aja??

Quick reminder don’t forget to not compare yourself to people on social media. Use it as a platform for fun and maybe some motivation or something that helps fuel your creativity. But never compare to what you see people posting. Although in this video my pump is going and it looks ok, I’ve never felt weaker after my workout. And it’s reminder and a motivator for me. Just remember people won’t usually post the shitty parts of their life on social media. So don’t let comparisons bring you down or stop you from going for what you want.
Be your own #wcw ❤️
...and by that I mean “look at this woman, I’m going to absolutely crush her one day” kinda Wednesday.
I never pictured myself walking out on a stage in front of a crowd...I’ve always been on the reserved side, usually observing from a distance.
Safe to say, my time in this sport has built my confidence exponentially.
I now prance around in a sparkly number that makes my normal swimsuits look like church attire.
I’m comfortable with my body at both bulk and lean weights, and I crave feedback even when I present my ‘best packages’.
Mapping out some @musclecontest shows for the rest of the season...I can’t wait for this photo to be the “before” of my future comparisons ❤️
Lets flashback to Granite Games. Its the 2nd workout. The sled push/pull. We finish the workout. We C O L L A PS E to the finish line. I cant move. I can hardly breathe. I truly believe I might stay on the field in this position till I die. Which.... welp at this point might be any second. The ONLY thing spuring me on is the voice of my team in the stands telling me CRYSTAL. GET UP. but can I? Can I ever move again? My teammates are up. Im still lying there. I hear my teammates telling me along with those in the stands "common Crystal. Get up." But I cant. My judge reaches down and lends a hand to me. Against my screaming body, I stand to wobbly legs. My judge asks me if I need medical. I almost tell him yes. Aka 99% sure im dying. I hear my my friends from the stands telling me to move. Get in the shade. Somehow I put one leg in front of the other. Somehow I move. My teammates are in front of me. Dying too, yet cheering me on to move. I get off the field to the hallway. The workout is over, yet my teammate turns around and says "Common Crystal common. Keep up. Keep moving. You can do it. Dont lay down again." She tells me over and over again. She cheers me on as if we are mid workout. I love her for it. So I somehow move through the hall. I somehow get to our tent. I collapse again... till the next workout
Story of my life on the Granite Games sled push workout which I can honestly say was the WORST WORKOUT OF ENTIRE MY LIFE BAR NONE. But I finished. WE finished. And because of my team I stood to my feet when I thought I might honestly need medical attention. Thats competition. That is team. That is friendship. That is pushing yourself till you have NOTHING left to give... then giving more. And. That - is What I live for.
Life’s a push and pull, the trick is to know when to do which. #Ringtoss#Ninjafitnessacademy Shout out to the incredibly talented @noah.ray for this shot. Fellow ninja and member of the NFA this guy is the go to for photography and video!
Wide back Wednesday... must have been the years of trying to be a powerlifter... in 2011 I was in a head on collision and had to get a c6 & c7 spinal fusion... I would not let it stop me from doing what I loved so I slowly recovered myself, training what I could and eventually started moving weight around. I eventually got up to a fatter 250lbs and hated how I looked so I took on competing.. after about my third or fourth show I was given feedback... dude you have a prison back... huh? It looks like all you do is deadlifts... lol basically what I did... so secret to a big back... deadlifts!!
Illustration for theAppeal.org, thx AD @liviatronic. I broke the loop. Im getting in my own way a lot. I feel that its better to move in a present, small dose style. Now I find myself finally making decisions that i think would "help" others but it, in the grand scheme of things dont. I want to put out fires before it grows even though i sparked it, well not intentionally. Before i would ignore it. But im aware and I love where im at now, i haven't said that before. Fruit loops, it took a few captions but i finally said it, FRUIT LOOPS!!#vaporwave#pastel#paint#illustration#self#drawing#zine#digitalart#instaart#ballpitmag#aesthetic#kawaii#glow#flex#black#pink#netart#food
So thankful for having this woman by my side for all the love and support she has shown me through thick and thin. Sharing the moment at my first @wbff_aust registration night. LOVE YOU @jacquelineemberson 💕✨🙆🏼♀️👑 #tbt
Hoy era una de esos dias en los que no tenia NADA pero NADA ganas de entrenar... Luego me puse a pensar en esta frase: “La fuerza no viene de ganar. Tus luchas desarrollan tus puntos fuertes. Cuando atraviesas dificultades y decides no rendirte eso es fortaleza.”
Morning mood ,I don't care about Prince Charming but Where are the forest animals that clean?🐘🦌🐆 เช้าขนาดนี้ก็ไปทั้งชุดนอนสิคะ ออ มีอีกเรื่อง สำหรับบางคนที่ไม่ชอบหน้ากันโดยไม่มีสาเหตุ แนะนำว่า คุณไม่ต้องส่อง ไม่ต้องเสือก ไม่ต้องอยากรู้ชีวิตคนอื่นให้มาก ใช้ชีวิตของตัวเองไปให้ดีเป็นพอนะจ๊ะ
