Alright, alright! Here are my before pics! I am so excited for the next two months, and to show my final results! .
Should I share progress through the two weeks? Or do before and after at the end? Comment and let me know!
Blackwolf Athlete @ek.avramova is HANGING around in the gym this week working on her fitness and strength levels. Check out her latest blog post and find out what a day in her life looks like - http://alifeinwater.com/blog/f/a-day-in-my-life
Yay for another volume PB on low bars! 82.5kg for 2x3 😊😊 These felt pretty good and i felt so much more confident under them than i thought i would! Thanks to the legend behind me, my mind just shuts off and i feel all zen & shit 😜
Happy to be back into routine so i actually get a rest day tomorrow. 4 days back to back last week left me feeling a little broken 😂
Clips from this mornings back suicide, definitely going to feel this one. I struggle like everyone else with where I am and where I want to be. This typically is what drives me, lately I haven't been feeling the motivation to keep going. I go back and forth questioning 'what am I doing?' and if I should quit everything. That's when I try to silence the negative voice and keep going even if I am uncertain if this is what's right for me.
Good morning loves 💞
Some sumo deadlift for you this morning, this was my last set before seeing how much I could do and I got to 60kg for one which I'm super happy with 🐝 pretty sure 99% of the bruises on my legs are from deadlifts tbh 👀
Hope you all smash today 🌻
On chatting with one of my clients just last week, we were discussing calories and she explained the way she views them that keeps her motivated and focused
This particular client has a self-acclaimed bad relationship with food but has pulled out all the stops to an unbelievably level. So much so that it really is an inspiring story… more on this to follow in the proceeding months
Intrigued, I of course, asked her to let me in on her little secret
She views calories as currency… let me explain!
She has £10 to spend (2000 calories) for the entire day. She knows that this £10 will see her through the day easily but doesn’t want to squander it on expensive, unnecessary items (high calorie, low nutrient foods). She factors in all of her essential items (nutrient dense foods) for the day and if she happens to have a few pennies spare and wants to treat herself she will, if she doesn’t then those pennies can go away for a rainy day
If she does give into temptation and buys a flashy expensive gadget (high calorie, low nutrient food) she knows she will have less money (calories) to spend for the rest of the day and will have to make stricter choices
So far, she hasn’t bought any flashy expensive gadgets and doesn’t feel the need to as she is quite satisfied with what she can purchase with her £10. She is also content with the fact she has flexibility to spend a few pennies on a little luxury if she wants to
This process has really changed the way she views her nutrition
Will it work for you? Maybe, but the point is we have worked on developing a system that works for her as an individual...
and guess what? It works! She has lost 18lbs over the last five weeks
At LIFT we work with you to build systems that work for you...

CARDIO // I love cardio, but it’s got to be the right kind of cardio. I used to be a runner, although I was never particularly good at it. I did one half marathon and one 10k before my body (and mind) crapped out on me and decided that we didn’t want to do it anymore. Plus, I got so tired of the constant street harassment I received for daring to be a fat woman trying to exercise in public. Then, I discovered spin. It’s not for everyone and - real talk - good spin classes aren’t cheap. But if I’m in London, I try to fit in as many sessions at @boomcycle as possible. I love Spin because it’s hard and it makes me challenge myself both physically and mentally. I always feel that I do some of my best thinking when I’m on a bike, even more so when I’m screaming along to George Michael while doing it. #britishpowerlifter#cardio#cardioworkout#spin#powerliftingwomen#womenwholift#liftingladies#powerliftingwomen#powerliftingladies
Why do we need them ? And why do I personally use them?
🍑 They help me recover faster, ensuring my next training session is even tougher than the last.. I find when I’m sore I can’t train as intense, but if I make sure I’m stacking my Aminos, I am a warrior 😂😂 and on the plus side, @titanarena_official BCAA’s are good to have around when your having a sweet craving, just add some of this to ice and blend it up to make a NOT so naughty sweet treat 🌈🍑 -

Whilst I love training in my own gym it’s good once in a while and train somewhere else
Legs day done @activefitnessclub_weymouth and a walk back along @weymouthharbour for my cardio ....
A couple of Pbs today and slowly getting nearer to deadlifting my bodyweight which due to mostly cutting over the last few years I have not managed to achieve
Slow but sure wins the race for me anyway and transforming myself into a strong woman 💪💪
