Here we go with the REVERSE WARRIOR
I love the name of this pose because it's a direct link to how I feel at the moment, in more ways than one
We all know that post competition we are supposed to reverse diet. I didn't do this 🙈🙈 but I'm trying by all means to stick to promises that I made to myself with regards to food and training. I WILL NOT go back to competing (FOMO is real) and I WILL pay attention to my baby business. I have goals to reach with Just Bake Me Fit 🤗 •
2ndly, I'm trying to reverse some mental damage too. It's sad that I've been conditioned to believe that having a bit of body fat is worse than being mean-spirited, coniving or judgemental. So this is what I'm practicing, "I focus my attention on the love that is around me and I expect back miracles" - Thank you @gabbybernstein ❤
I've written more about this on my blog. Click the 1st link in my bio.
We've got a firefighter here showing us the ropes today! A firefighter has to go through regular medical exams in order to make sure he is always fit to face the work ahead. Luckily, his wife is a physiotherapist at Next Level ... teamwork! 🙌
I went to the health center today and found out that my bone marrow tests came back and everything looked alright. What’s bad is that I haven’t been admitted to psychiatry, and my doctor and the health center said that I really should be because of the thoughts I have and what I do while acting on these thoughts. So she sent a new admition for me and I hopefully get taken in then. I really, REALLY, need someone to talk to. Now I’m on my way home after school which have been good. •
P.S I’d like to thank everyone for sharing my post and the petition to help ua tell Sweden that we need Capio eating disorder center! I greatly appreciate it 💙 If you’d like to sign the petition then it’s in my bio or if you’ve missed my post about it then it’s the one before this. I’m also going to speak to the one in charge of this whole thing so I can bring forward my opinions! I’ll get back to you on that once I’ve talked with them. Thanks again 💙 D.S
And it’s really, really tiring. Not ‘I need a nap’ tiring; but ‘I’ve just woken up and feel like I never went to bed’ tiring.
Every thought requires effort. Every movement feels like walking through sand.
You’re not alone, it really doesn’t discriminate and you CAN get help 🖤
2018-2015 (bulk vs first mens physique show 2 days out 😳🐥).
My legs have always lacked density and size due to me tearing my ACL. But really i used this excuse as a shite bags way out. When what i really needed to do was strip the bar, work on mobility, range of motion and time under tension.
I still see it today people trying to grow their legs with far too much load on the bar, missing crucial parts of movement patterns. Your muscle doesn't understand what weight your lifting it responds to the stimilus. If u cant feel the muscle engaging from full ROM then why do it, its just an injury waiting to happen.
. ★Telfast D (effective for allergy, itch, flu)
. ★Zinnat 250mg (antibiotic, after many yrs)
. ★Beprosone ointment (aka Dr Nathan's cream)
. ★APO 10mg (allergy, itch)
This is how I could recall when DR asked me what meds you took last time? 😂 I show 'em my insta 😷😛😌
So, 24 weeks later, to the night, I skated for the first time at The Wrecking Hall. It was a little scary at times and there were a lot of things I didn't want to try yet. I was successfully able to cross overs, I did turn around a couple of times, I sort of backwards skated, and I even tried a few tiny plow stops. Collectively, I skated about 30-45 minutes with a large break in between to stretch. I didn't make any contact with anyone and I skated away from everyone for the most part. I still have a lot of confidence and muscle to build back up.
Ironically, during practice they did the same drill that I broke my leg doing. I know that they have done it one other time while I was not there since the night I broke. It is kinda weird the night I am rolling around that they are doing that drill. It wasn't planned that way either. Anyway, it didn't stress me out at all. Of course that might be a whole different story once I am able to physically do the drill again.
We're back in business!
Put on a bit of mass during my time out but my shape is still pretty solid. I can't do certain exercises but I'm back at last. Lifting belt works great, so that's good news for my back. Foot holding up OK but need to take it easy for now.
The journey of self discovery continues
A week ago today I had two abdominal cysts removed surgically. Internally I had been in pain for months and it eventually effected my ability to eat. Could you imagine. Every time you took a bite of food you’re in pain. The surgery required my doctor to cut through my navel and another two incisions in my right and left side of my panty line. It has been a tough week and prob more tough days to come. I am so sore I can hardly stand and walk and I have stitches which is so gross to me lol but I can EAT ! I don’t feel any pain pressure or discomfort as I did before and I’m so so happy. Through this surgery I found the positivity in the smallest things. Like being able to smile. Most people really take simple tasks for granted like getting up out a chair. Everything is different for me right now recovering but I appreciate every single moment. I am blessed and I never ever forget it. No matter how rough things are everything turns out to be just fine. I love you guys so much because the support has really gotten me through. My family and significant people of my life have helped me in ways I didn’t even know I needed until now. I didn’t even know I was this strong I’m loving myself so much more 😬😬😬 continuing my road to recovery happy and smiling. 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾💜💜💜💜💜💜😘😘😘😘😛😛😛😛😛😛🗣🗣🗣 #fucklupus#teamlupus#postsurgery#aweekout#igotthis#ilovemysupport#thankyousomuchMJ#wrappedupshawty#lupuswarrior#roadtorecovery
So yesterday was a big day. I got diagnosed with emotionally unstable personality disorder. They say it's the underlying issue behind the depression and anxiety I've been suffering from. It's a big thing to get my head round. I need to learn more about what it is and start to think about making changes. Today however is about self care. I'm going to rest and eat my favourite tattie scones from back home and just come to terms with this new diagnosis. #selfcare#restday#tattiescones#scotland#eupd#bpd#mentalhealth#breakthestigma#roadtorecovery
No more vomitting though still not pups; but more of himself today compared to yesterday. Chasing Nash, barking at the sound of the gate and would take a nap in between.
Still, he needs to visit the vet (his doctor is also on sick leave lolz); to eat and drink water more. Nevertheless, i’m not complaining. 😊
Here’s to full recovery, belly rubs and cuddles! 😊🐺 #ThankYouEveryone ❤️
It's been awhile, but this morning I joined the 6am club for my favourite swim set.
8 lengths easy warm up, 5x 100m pull buoy, 10x 50m progressive front crawl (started at 60 sec per set and got to 44) then 6x 25m max effort (20-22secs). F*ck a duck it feels good to be pushing myself.
Then 20min of hydrotherapy and getting funny looks from the other swimmers 🙄. Got an aquathlon in 3 weeks so need to keep the swimming up!
Teamwork makes the dream work! Had the pleasure of being apart of this cool team on the weekend at the #superherotri . I did the swim, Callum (right) did the run, and little Oscar (left) did the cycle. It was amazing meeting these guys, hearing their stories and listening to the obstacles they face on a daily basis and recognising the sense of achievement they felt by doing what they did over the weekend, it was heartwarming to have been apart of it! Achievement is how you perceive it and sometimes it’s good to set your goals high! Well done guys #overcominganxiety#overcoming#roadtorecovery#helpforheroes#military
