Yeah soooo I gained a few kg of fat and lost a bit of vascularity... 🙄🤭
But in return I’ve got more strength and energy in the gym, more experience and more drive, so ya gotta take the losses with the wins, learn to love the process, take time to make some solid gains and come back better next year 😅👌
It’s a lifestyle not a diet, a fad or a hobby so whatever you’re doing, you better make it sustainable.❤️
First week back to the gym after having a week off. It’s been rough lately, busy finding an apartment, packing, moving by myself, unpacking, then getting sick and dealing with some other shit (because life likes to really challenge us😂).
Then I went back to work and the first thing someone said was that I’d put on weight...🤦♀️🤦♀️
It’s frustrating because when you lose weight, people comment and I even had someone ask if I was bulimic?! Then someone says you aren’t lean enough or muscular enough, next person says you’re too lean and have too much muscle, you look sick or manly or that you shouldn’t put any more muscle on or lose any more weight. Fuck I could go on and on with the amount of opinions people feel the need to voice or throw in your face without being asked. Let’s keep in mind as well that the majority of these people are not fit themselves, have never competed in a fitness comp of any kind or made any big changes to their lifestyle, diet or bodies everrrrr! Nor do they have a nutrition, dietetic, medical or personal training degree of any kind! Basically, what I’m saying is.. people will always have an opinion and no one thinks the same nor has the same preferences when it comes to appearances or lifestyle etc, so fuck what everyone else is saying. You want something go and get it, you’re the one that has to put in the hard work, the hours, the discipline, maintain the drive and stay mentally strong to get there. You really have to do it for yourself and listen to no one but your coach and your own body and mind. You won’t go anywhere trying to please others or by listening to what everyone else is saying and doing. Put yourself first and don’t let anyone’s opinion or attempts to sabotage your efforts hold you back. Do you always.✌️❤️
