"Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken." -Warren Buffet
During the process, it never really occurred to me that when I changed my habits I would change my life.
Every time I think about that day in the doctor's offices few yrs ago, I remember thinking like what am I doing here, I'm young like 🤦🏽♀️I was just shocked bc I hadn't realized how bad it had gotten, in my mind I was ok, I was doing good...well I wasn't. Anyway I'm just so thankful that I took a chance on myself, I gave everything I had everyday, and didnt quit like I usually did.
A friend of mine asked me why was I still working out like crazy and I reached my goal? This is my life now, I enjoy it, I've learned and embraced the fundamentals and I'm better off because of it. I don't have that fear anymore. ☺️ #fatloss#journeytomuscle#bodybeastforwomen#bodybeast#legday#lunges#bridges#planks#goals#consistency
I hate #planks , especially between push ups and after cardio (which all us strength athletes are supposed to hate), but I found the energy to snap a #selfie . Jah bless vanity, huh?
On another note today's class will hopefully be as entertaining as it is chaotic, after we talk about the latest NYT article on how capitalism is bringing Brazil and much of the non-Western world the wonderful bounty of obesity and chronic illness.
The crazy thing is the minute other people eat the way we "normally" do, they start dying or wanting to die. Even when they eat our mainstream version of "healthy" they get sicker. Yet questioning the our norms around nutrition, food, and what we allow in the supply is controversial? 🤔
Day 9️⃣ #JourneyforthePress
All about da #planks today....which I love! 😍
@jadebellyyoga keep it coming babe....awesome stuff!
We 💘planks! This is one we're loving in #ballerinabum class this week! Work your core, lower abs and hips by doing this:
1) Reach R leg diagonally back while on your side, keep hips stacked and counterpull slightly forward with your R shoulder 2) bring leg back to meet L as you swing your hips into a low plank supporting with R hand 3) keep hips low, neck long, abs in, hold for a breath and return to start! 🌟 Practice for class!
Thought I was gone but just been working.
A little extra fun for those who like planks but hate the basics. Planks are great but I wanted to add some fun to them. What do you think ???
some @bosu_fitness core work today!
camera angle is not great but you get the gist!
💥 i did 3 sets of 1 min each 💥 circuit includes: glute bridges, russian twists, side plank (each side), plank, bird dog, plank and twist 👍 just a different kind of core workout today! it was definitely a new challenge (as i'm sure you can tell in some of the clips 😂) but i had so much fun doing it!
is there any piece of equipment you're not sure what to do with? let me know in the comments and I'll make a video for it! ✨
The Forearm Plank Reach is an challenging progression to the traditional plank exercise that not only strengthens your abs, but it also improves your core stabilizer muscles and balance - @bradgouthro
To get started:
1. Get into a plank position with your toes and forearms planted into the floor, elbows at a 90 degree angle and directly below your shoulders, feet shoulder width apart, and your body forming a straight line from heels to head.
2. Contract your abs, your glutes, your hamstrings, quads, chest, and other every muscle in your body then reach one arm directly in front of you with your palms facing in.
3. Hold it for at least 3 seconds, then lower your forearm back to the ground.
4. Repeat with the opposite arm, and repeat.
5. That’s one rep. Continue alternating sides until you hit your desired rep count.
Only pic I took at the gym yesterday. Had not been in over a week. Last Sunday my mom was put in ICU and stayed there all week. I basically lived at the hospital. She's better now and I went to do arms and abs. I kicked my ass!

#tuesday#gymtime#mytime #💪✌ Ich wünsche Euch einen schönen Abend ihr Lieben, ich bin von der Arbeit direkt ins Gym 💪 Fazit meiner Diät, allmählich merke ich, dass die 500 kcal echt wenig am Tag sind, aber eine Woche muss ich noch durchhalten, in der Enthaltungsphase darf ich hoch auf 1000 kcal. Zum Glück arbeite ich momentan mehr, da fällt es mir nicht ganz so schwer😉
