Got an awful deload planned for next week. It’s much needed both mentally and physically.
Sometimes you need to know when to take a step back so you can take two forward!
A set dropped from each muscle group each session and sets kept well away from failure, just going for the pump...it isn’t going to be fun! •
The deload is going to really piss me off, not having that time of day when I can just loose it!
What my plate usually looks like 🍝
40:30:30 – the calories from each of your meals should come 40% from carbohydrates 30% from protein and 30% from a fat.
This is what I represent!
The plan encourages whole foods and plenty of whole grains, fruits and veggies
It’s a well-balanced diet
No food Are actually banned
Alcohol is allowed in moderation
It is Nutritionally Balanced
The control of Diabetes
You’ll need to keep track of servings from each food group
Eating out and traveling may be difficult
It takes time to get used to food with less salt
The Bottom Line:
This is a sensible plan that can lead to healthy weight loss and help decrease your chances of developing high blood pressure. It’s a win-win situation. You can maintain your fitness for a life time !🏋️⛹️🤸
Super excited for this 😊

Importance of Sleep 😴
Sleep is the key to being rewarded for your diet and fitness efforts. Not sleeping enough can reduce and undo the benefits of dieting. More than 35% of people are sleep deprived.
What Happens When You Cut Back On Sleep:
• The amount of fat loss you lose can be cut in half
• You feel hungrier - So you eat greater portions
• Less satisfied after meals - So you snack on sugary and fatty foods
• Lack energy to workout & your body doesn't recover as well after exercise
The bottom line: Not enough sleep further increasing your likelihood of gaining weight.
While there’s no hard number that applies to all people, a good rule of thumb is to receive between seven and nine hours of sleep per night, and to make sure that one poor night of sleep isn’t followed up with a few more. It might not seem like much, but it could make all the difference and mean more than any other health decision you make.
Happy Sleeping 😴

A few weeks back, I put up a post titled “How to Keep Your Gut Healthy.” It’s a super important topic and one that, as weird as it might sound, I actually love talking about. Because if your gut isn’t healthy, then chances are you are dealing with unpleasant symptoms that are holding you back from feeling good and living your best life.
How do I know? Because I've dealt with all these issues at some point in my life. In college I was diagnosed with an autoimmune skin condition, and later I developed anxiety, crippling digestive issues, and major hormonal imbalances. And so I bounced around from doctor to doctor hoping to get some answers, only to be given antacids, antidepressants, and topical steroids. Sure they gave me some temporary relief, but it did nothing to address the root cause, which I now know was a messed up gut. It wasn’t until I began doing some research of my own that I was able to find the right kind of doctors who helped me address the issue. After years of diligently working on improving my gut health, I'm no longer at the mercy of these symptoms, and I feel like I have my life back.
If you look at this list and can say yes to any of these issues, chances are your gut could use some love. So before you let a doctor give you a prescription for something that will be nothing more than a temporary band aid solution, take time addressing what is likely at the root of your suffering. Things like antibiotic and NSAID use, stress, lack of sleep, poor diet, untreated infections, hormonal imbalances, inflammation can all lead to this issue.
If left untreated, an unhealthy gut can lead to even more serious conditions, so don't wait to start fixing it. .
