🎉 lil’ leggo transformation + tips for growth 🎉
It’s been only about a year and a half since I started lifting, and I still got hellllla goals and progress ahead of me, but I am pretty pleased with the amount of muscle I’ve put on my lower body so far. what’s worked for me!! •
🌱 focusing on eating nutritious foods! food is fuel. you can’t build muscle without eating enough, and you can’t feel good without eating healthily. treat yo body well!•
🌱 change up your workouts til you figure out what works! It’s taken me lots of trial and error to figure out what exercises and what routine gives me results. •
🌱 CONSISTENCY! Don’t forget that this shit takes time. Your body could be changing and you don’t even notice so - keep at it, make working out a habit, and take progress pics if it helps keep you motivated!
Long post! Grab a snack 😂
I’d be lying if I told you I was okay with being injured, or that I don’t blame myself. There have been a lot of tears in the past couple days that you have not seen. I was at the highest peak I’ve been at in a while, and just like that pretty much everything is ripped out from under me. But that’s how life is, right? This pic was taken on Sunday - that night I injured my knee. What breaks my heart is I won’t be able to carry my boy like this for a while. But I WILL heal. I WILL walk again. I WILL carry him again. And most of all I WILL be there for him 110% again. I’m one of those moms, and no I’m not ashamed of it. 🐻
I was diagnosed with Hypermobile Ehlers Danlos as a young teen. I am not one to pull the excuse card, so I was not open about it. I would dislocate often - my knees being the worst. I also get dizzy at times, fatigued, an elevated heart rate, a rash covering both entire legs if I take too long of a shower, and frequent pain in my joints.
Now that I have really hit rock bottom, I can’t avoid it anymore, and I am ready to help others who have this. I want to work on building muscle tone to help control my lax ligaments.
I’ve come to terms with the fact that I may never be able to go full throttle, and that is okay.
I make this post because this will be changing the fitness aspect a little bit. I will be doing challenges with low impact series such as PiYo, and frequently you will see me modify. I will not be completing this round of the 21 Day Fix. I am unsure of what treatment I need still, (surgery is not out of the question) but I will continue to strengthen my body and post the workouts I do here!
Thank you to all who continue to support me through each step of this journey! ❤️
