"It doesn't look to me as though it's a sound body that by its virtue makes the soul good, but the opposite: a good soul by its own virtue makes the body as good as it can be" -Socrates
I put up this quote yesterday and deleted it (b/c indecisive and forever self conscious about selfies) but I'm reposting because of how relevant it is to the world of fitness. You can't build a healthy, strong body off an unhappy, unkind, or ungrateful soul. Build your mind up first, then your body. Enough of my rambles - happy Friday night.
What is “clinically effective dosages” in supplements⁉️
“Clinically effective dosages” in supplements are usually backed by scientific studies that demonstrate they produce a desired effects.
They specifically come from reviewing every well-designed, well-executed, peer-reviewed study in the world of scientific literature molecules and they find the perfect dosages that confer the maximum benefits with the minimum side effects.
In the case of PULSE by Legion, when you compare it to other pre-workout supplements, it looks like it has “super saiyan-doses” of various ingredients such as citrulline malate and beta-alanine.
But the thing is those dosages aren’t inordinately high, but in fact, those dosages are actually the amounts required to have a noticeable increase in your performance. The issue is that most other pre-workouts are under-dosed.
To get more info on Pulse or to get fully effective supplements checkout the link in my profile.

I'd have never imagined that this little page would have been so followed.
My journey hasn't been easy at all, I still have some bad days, where I feel like stucked at the same point, no improvements, but that's just in my mind.
I gained so much in just one year.
I gained confidence and a healthy mind.
More than a beautiful body.
Abs just don't matter when you're not okay with yourself. I am. I love my life. And I love all of you. Nothing would have been so easy without your daily encouragements.
And thank you to all the women who motivate me every day.
Just like @thewesttwins who have almost reached 270k followers but still they keep it real with all of us.

I just wanna tell you something that maybe not everybody tell us every day: WE CAN DO THIS!
You, me, everybody.
And, THANK YOU AGAIN! ❤
Alright guys, I got a few messages about healthy recipes so I wanted to share something I put together this week. I’m not a baker, so I promise this is super easy! And they are Patrick approved, so if you don’t trust my diet taste buds, you can trust his!
What you need:
3/4 cup pure pumpkin
1/2 cup almond flour + 2 tbls
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 tbls vanilla extract
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Splash of liquid stevia to taste .
* Blend the banana and pumpkin in a blender or magic bullet. * Mix all dry ingredients and spices in a bowl and even add the banana and pumpkin mixture.
* Lightly coat a muffin tin with cooking spray and place muffins in tin
* Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes
* This makes approximately 6 muffins
Today I decided to add a little treat to the top by mixing plain Greek yogurt with fat free, sugar free, cheesecake flavored pudding a little stevia. It made the perfect pumpkin cheesecake muffin!
Macros for each muffin (without frosting) are 13c/6f/4 protein.
The muffins themselves are grain-free, gluten-free and vegan, but most importantly, DELISH!!!
Give it a try and let me know what you think!!
Happy fall, y’all! 🍁🎃🍂💛
HAPPY FRIDAY! 🙌🎉 Hope you #treatyoself in some way this weekend, whether it's through doing something you enjoy, giving yourself extra time to relax, or enjoying an actual treat like this! Normally I'm all about that #wholefoodsplantbased diet, but I got some #veganhalotop to try this week! I liked it, but it's super sweet compared to what I'm used to. The taste reminds me of a protein bar, and I'm not entirely sure why all of instagram is so obsessed. 🤔 I would honestly rather make my own "nice cream" out of frozen fruit, but maybe that's just me! Either way, I'm super excited they created a #dairyfree line, so it's still a win! Happy weekend. 😋🍨
So incredibly proud of this guy! In 3 months, @bakerrj10 has completely transformed in both mind and body. He's dropped almost 15kg and reduced body his fat from 37.6% to 32% while maintaining his lean muscle mass. He's making significant progress in training at @crossfitdubbo too, finally getting those chest to bars, handstand push ups, and he's a great runner! Instead of rum and coke, he looks forward to soda water and lime at the end of the day; on bucks weekends he's still gets up to go for a run; and on weekends he takes his daughters for bike rides around the neighbourhood. He's a totally transformed Ryan - but still the same guy we all know and love! Well done, Baker! 👏👏👏👏💪💪💪💪 #bodytransformation#crossfitdubbo#athlete#health#fitness#healthcoach#macros#eat#realfood#wholefood#healthylifestyle#beforeandafter#weightloss
Where are all my fellow college students at?! 🤓 We are currently studying cross sections of the spinal cord in our neuroscience class 📕💻 Nerdyyyyy but I love it 😊😍 #SCIENCEROCKS The majority of my time is spent studying now a days & with the help of @vpx_sports Meltdown Fat Burner, not only is my body put in a state to help promote fat burning and appetite suppression (🙅🙅to stress eating!!), but my energy and focus is zoned in as well! 🙀😈 Supplements don't have to be ONLY used in the gym 😎💪 #BrainsAndBraids#BEARUP#MeltdownFatBurner#DPT @vpxredlineceo
ATTENTION: you do not have to starve yourself to drop the scale to change your physique ladies! My client has been eating over 1900 calories a day, and completely changed her body in just 6 weeks. It isn't about crazy clean eating or doing excessive amounts of cardio, it's about timing her carbs and portions out appropriately to maximize her workouts, help in recovery, and fit her crazy schedule. It's consistency. We are even seeing the gain of lean muscle mass while dropping considerable amounts of body fat. #hellyes Beyond proud to be a part of this girl's journey.
So weird weighing my food.
I'm having a hard time getting in all the protein I need to meet my goals. It's also weird to see how many calories everything has, and fascinating that I wasn't eating enough. #healthy#healthyeats#macros#macrocounting
Just wanted to repost this💕
SKINNY WAFFLE RECIPE
This is my go to recipe when I am craving waffles, have a lot of protein macros leftover but not enough carbs or fats.
It is a lifesaver!
About 5 minutes…more if you’re like me and are terrible in the kitchen
Just don’t overcook it
Depends on you
✖️1 Scoop of Protein Powder your choice (I use Quest because I find it cooks the best and the flavors are amazing!)
✖️1 Whole Egg
✖️1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
✖️Water to make the mixture your preferred consistency
1️⃣Turn your waffle maker on
2️⃣Prepare your waffle batter with the ingredients listed above and mix well. There is no specific order…although I would suggest putting the water in last. 🙂
3️⃣Spray your waffle maker with non-stick spray
4️⃣Pour batter onto the waffle maker
5️⃣Watch every so often to make sure your waffles don’t overcook
Macros & calories for whole recipe:
Depends on the type of protein you use.
Will range from 178-200 calories
✖️PB2 (More macro-friendly than regular Peanut Butter)
✖️Walden Farms Sugar Free Pancake Syrup (The only syrup of theirs that I love)
✖️Sliced Fruit of your choice
✖️All the above??
the gym was PACKED but i got a great workout in and it’s 75 degrees and almost November so ya girl is doin well ! It’s Friday and I’m one week closer to not spending my weekend studying yeeee #GraduationPlsHurry
Also - pro tip when the gym is packed - find a piece of equipment you can do multiple exercises on (barbell, cable, dumbbells) and do a circuit! Saves so much time and effort and prevents you from wandering the gym between every exercise looking for something that’s open. (nothing is lol)
I grabbed a barbell and did 4 sets of this:
-reverse lunges 10 each leg
-romanian deadlifts 12
I was DYIN between each set issa good one :)
