Cannot tell you what a fantastic coach @painfullyaverageweightlifter is! In a week he’s turned around my clean technique. I’m loving Olympic Weightlifting. It’s testing everything for me! Making great progress as well. Nailed 2 pb’s today and this one at the end of a very gruelling training week. Roll on the competition in December 🏋️♂️ 💪🏻 #Repost @chelmsfordbarbellclub with @get_repost

"I am stronger than this challenge and this challenge makes me stronger" ✰✰
I recently went to the ER for severe abdominal pain, cramps, nausea, stomach was extended and I was basically having very abnormal syptoms involving my stomach. My stomach usually never acts this way. That morning I had gotten a bag of fluids yet when I came to the hospital only a few hours later I was still dehydrated and had to get a 2nd bag of fluid. I got an ultrasound done, X-ray, as well as some blood work. Basically I have a severely impacted colon. They sent me home with the option of taking Miralax every 30 minutes. Needless to say I am very thankful for my mom staying up with me till 4 am. I am going to be honest, I am scared and it's hard to have strength. These are the beginning syptoms of gastroperesis . Gastroperesis usually comes along with P.O.T.S. It causes your digestive system to become paralyzed. We aren't a 100% sure of course but I am on a TON of antihistamines which can also cause gastroperesis. Today a appointment with my PA (regular doctor) for a follow up on getting me cleaned out and some other issues. My stomach is doing way better yet I cannot take the Miralax anymore as we figure it's dehydrating me even more. He will also be getting me referred to a GI doctor, a geneticist, and a surgeon. The GI doctor and geneticist are self explanatory but I will be pushing for a port (that's where the surgeon comes in). A port is basically a permanent I.V. It goes in your chest and you get fluids into there. No poking involved everytime I need fluids, we can also do this from home and on our own, and you can get blood work from a port without being stuck! As well as getting more fluids if needed than I'm currently getting. I never in my wildest dreams expected me to end up chronicly ill. But even when I became a spoonie I never imagined I'd be in the place I am now. It's emotionally draining to get stuck with needles. I don't want a port, I am not doing this to "get attention" or "skip school" yet it's necessary at this point for one. It will be beneficial for me getting closer to having more of a life. I am so thankful for my amazing family and support group I have💘
Esta es la fotografía que hizo darme cuenta de que no llevaba la vida que quería... Estaba bastante deprimida y no tenía claro cómo lo iba a hacer pero sabía que me merecía otra cosa.
Y si algo tenía claro es que esa otra forma de vida la tenía que buscar yo, que nadie más vendría a arreglármela por arte de magia.
Te digo esto a ti que te tomaste unos minutos para leerme, para que sepas y veas que si se puede lograr todo aquello que deseas, todo aquello que quieras realizar: emprender un negocio, conseguir un nuevo trabajo, viajar, tener una vida mas saludable, mas feliz; aún no tienes idea de lo que eres capaz de hacer. INTÉNTALO.
Las cosas no siempre son fáciles, hay que luchar, rompernos, darlo todo. Para quienes piensan que siempre fui así, la que ven del lado izquierdo, sonriente y con unos kilos menos, no fue así, también hubieron momentos difíciles, pero la decisión de ser feliz es nuestra.
No te conformes, sal y lucha por lo que quieres pero hazlo con el corazón, se #inquebrantable . Cambia desde adentro y comenzarás a transformarte por fuera.
Vive, ama, ámate, canta, baila, se feliz, ten fe..no hay nada mas hermoso que ser la persona que soy ahora.
Did you know that some of the clients I get to serve aren’t necessarily going to the gym to get fit. 🤔
They’re running around after grandchildren or perhaps their lifting aging parents.
They need something to keep themselves strong, injury free, mobile and flexible 👊with quick targeted exercises.
This is a sample of what I design just for them. Want more info? DM me or leave me a comment below 🙌🏻 take care of your body, you only have one 💥
🔸side to side knees, mobility work for hips, wakes up lots of joints.
🔸hip thrust mobility for hip flexors. Warming up arms and shoulders for next exercise.
🔸tricep dips body weight💥 nuff said!
🔸straight leg toe taps You will feel your hamstrings on this one🔥
🔸if your shoulders are ok try going from hip thrust to sliding through into a seated position. Talk about mobility.
🔸forward stretch into side bends, flexibility 🔸roll down, roll up
P I L A T E S ———-
Can you see how this method of incorporating mobility, flexibility and body weight exercises does so much more for your body, in a short amount of time 👊
Let me know if I can serve you in creating a midlife that will ensure movement longevity •
“Muscle memory is not a memory stored in your muscles, of course, but memories stored in your brain that are much like a cache of frequently enacted tasks for your muscles. It's a form of procedural memory that can help you become very good at something through repetition, but in exactly the same way it can make you absolutely terrible at that same thing. Here's why.
If you're practicing a song on the piano over and over again, the idea is that you'll continue to improve. "Practice makes perfect" can be an accurate phrase because the more you do something, you build up that procedural memory and your brain can quickly instruct your muscles to carry it out. That muscle memory doesn't judge whether you're doing good or bad, however, and so if you practice a song poorly for hours on end you're going to be really good at making the same mistakes over and over again. This is not only bad because you've wasted your time learning to be bad or mediocre at a task and may see all this work as a failure, but because you didn't necessarily have to fail at all. When you repeat mistakes again and again, you build a muscle memory with those mistakes.”
Life lesson here....don’t just keep doing the same thing, simply because it’s what you have been doing. This applies to ANY area of life.
I’ve recently switched up my workouts to use resistance bands, TRX, and body weight for upper body, rather than weights. I am also applying change to many areas of my life. Those changes are hard, they are scary AF, I have no clue what is going to happen. But what I do know, is that continually repeating the same thing over and over, just because that’s what I already know, hasn’t worked out yet.
