Después de casi 3 meses de no practicar Yoga... Por fin lo he retomado y no saben lo tan BIEN que se siente, el ver que tu cuerpo sin problema lo acepta y tu estado de animo aumenta de una forma positiva.
Ver como algunas asanas las mejoras o aumentas su intensidad como la primera foto, esa torsión de cadera siempre me tiraba y esta penúltima clase sin más salio... (aún me tira en 🐒 pero hay tiempo y ganas para seguir mejorando).
Sooo, YES! YOGA es de lo MEJOR en mil maneras y formas!!! #YogaEveryDamnDay#YogaLife#HealthyLife#Happiness#LoveYourself
Making the stress of work fall away the moment I walk out of the office
One of the excuses I use to justify not exercising on work nights
I'm just too exhausted, I am mentally drained at the end of the day, I come home and take care of my toddler... The list goes on
And we are baaaaack feeling good in myself and my training🥳
Post-show I felt a little broken: my body was fried, water retention was real and as a result my training suffered massively. Essentially, I just needed a break: some additional food, a deload and a reduction in steps and cardio (in fact, I’ve had no formal cardio and just 10k steps since stepping off stage).
I’m fluctuating between 2-3kg up from stage weight, and I’m actually feeling very comfortable here. I had my wobble when all of a sudden I was 5-6kg up, but as I said before, that’s more so because of how I FELT as opposed to looked. Since that’s dropped off I’ve felt - and moved - so much better🙌🏼
Like most people, I put a lot of pressure on myself to get back into a routine very quickly. And, actually I found this hard (despite never struggling previously). But, I feel like I’ve found a good balance. I know when I’m being greedy and when I could actually do with a little extra food without entering a ‘fuck it’ mentality. I’m enjoying my off plan meals without feeling guilty. And even though I initially saw some of this as a kind of ‘failure’ for not being a robot like I have previously, on reflection I’m actually seeing this as progress. For me, that shows I’ve improved my relationship with my mind and food; so, even if that means I’ve gained more weight post-comp than I have previously, that isn’t a negative thing and testament to the fact that you should never compare your actions to those around you👸🏼

PCOS doesn't define me.
Bipolar depression doesn't define me.
But I'll be honest, those are HARD things to NOT let overcome your life. And they did for me for over a decade of mine. Live 10+ years in the belly of something dark and defeating and you know how hopeless that feels.
I can't even tell you what all it took for me to take that pic on the left. And I definitely NEVER thought it would be seen by anyone but me.
I didn't know then that there would be 'after' pictures and that I'd share this photo dozens upon dozens of times. I didn't know because I was broken then, I had zero belief in myself, I had negativity and excuses swirling around in my brain constantly. I had failed so many times before to try to lose the weight, to try to "be healthier" but THIS TIME, this one time that I literally could have done this OR signed up for another gym membership or class package I wouldn't use and have a couple of appointments with a nutritionist that didn't get me... THIS TIME and the "all-or-nothing" personality in me served me well.
I could cry (I sometimes do) thinking about where I was in comparison with where I am today. Thinking about the fact that I might not even BE HERE today because of how progressively depressed I was getting.
I won't say I'm lucky because I made this choice and followed thru on it. I put in the 30 minutes a day to sweat. I set my alarm in the evenings to remember to do a 5 minute check in with my people. I followed the 80/20 meal plan for me and my craziness. And YES, some days it was HARD. But, you know what...
Nothing is as hard as letting those dark, defeating things define you. NOTHING. And you ARE stronger than that. That is why I continue I share this picture. Because I'm nothing special. Hundreds of thousands of before/afters exist just like this from what we work thru together. I'm damn proud of myself FOR SURE but this is not hard, it does not take hours, or hundreds of dollars in memberships and appointments.
You just gotta decide it's your time.
You CAN do this. And it will improve EVERY facet of your life.
