I’ve been so bad at updating this so I’ll probably just link my instagram to Tumblr so you guys can see all my stupid updates.
Made cauliflower quinoa patties tonight on top of a bed of sauteed garlic sesame kale with avocado. And a side of tart cherry juice to hopefully relieve my achey muscles.
2nd week of working with a trainer is going well.
I’ve learned a lot already and really just needed some assistance with technique to really feel things out. Chad (my trainer) is super stoked to be working with me because I actually want to lift heavy shit, and I push myself a lot further than most of his clients. He also thinks I’m weird for preferring leg day over any other muscle group.
I’ve got another 5 sessions left and hope to knock out my squat form, military press, learn more shoulder exercises and romanians in that time.
My legs and back are seeing some really good progress right now - even my bi’s and tri’s a little, too. Super stoked.
Because of my intense schedule I’ve decided to lighten my load and won’t be working at my part-time job over the summer. gotta feel things out. I’m only 22, and have a fucking amazing busy life, but I gotta prioritize to spend time with a) my family and b) myself (reflection time is important). Really excited to be able to spend more time training, too.
Not sure where I’m going with all this, but I haven’t updated in awhile and just figured I’d post somewhere about how I’m really fucking happy and excited for the future - and just to get stronger.

Shout out to my street clothes being the same as my workout clothes so when I’m at a show and bored watching the opening bands, I can just drive to the gym and bust out a quick bench session and make it back in time for Cruel Hand.
This is exactly why I’m always wearing my gym clothes. No jeans ever.
Why have I never seen this before… hahaha
Went up in weight in every exercise today. Feelin good.
i feel on the ice this morning, for the first time in as long as i can remember. it could have been worse (ex: letting go of the leash and chasing the dog around the ‘hood) but i only have a small pain in an already annoying knee that i’ll just have to monitor. We finally had a busy lunch shift…
keep it up lovely pants.
I’ve been consistently working out 5-6 days a week for three weeks, and I’m already feeling amazing. The gym is
perfect, it’s never busy, and the owner told me today that my face is looking leaner and he can tell I’ve been dieting correctly. Super stoked.
On another note, I’ve also been reading Kelly Starrett’s book habitually and his mobility wod videos are really making me think about form. Hopefully my boyfriend starts taking me more seriously when I try to talk to him about this stuff cause soon I’m going to be lifting a lot heavier weight (I hope)
At least I know I’m doing it right.
What’s been the good news with all of you lately?
Boss is over a half hour late. Ruining my gym time. Fuck.
Holy shit, I’m feeling so good today. I volunteered at a food shelf for 2 hours, went to the gym for an hour in a half and worked my back/biceps + some cardio, and bought my boyfriend some new sambas cause some asshole stole his.
Feeling like I did some good deeds today.
