this is a little room in my house that I enter about 3-4 times a week - the painting i'm standing in front of was painted by my grandma - who is 90(!) and lives on the other side of the world to me ☹️ when I spent some time with her last year she was telling me stories about her childhood. her dad bought an abandoned railway cart and turned it into a home for her, her mum and her siblings, until she had to go and live with her grandparents when her youngest sibling came into the family. she had a childhood that I could barely register. she's an incredible woman and I hold her close to my heart - as much as she may disagree with my path in life (hello tattoos) I know she loves me dearly. family is a precious gift 🙏🏻💕
Deadlifts have become one of my favorites. I used to dread them, but realizing how much they work your body motivated me. No matter what main exercise I’m doing whether it’s deadlifting, bench pressing, barbell squatting, etc. I start off with a low weight and take my time on that before I start my actual sets. This way I work on my form, flexibility, and warm-up my body before doing the real thing. And yes, I wore the wrong shoes that day...
when you put a red sock in with your whites 🧦 honestly I can't believe how much i've grown in the past six months - the girl who grabs phones and sneaks into her mum's computer to delete every single photo of her has almost disappeared. I barely have any photos of me from before 2016 becuase I would delete them all, ashamed of the body and mindstate I was in. i am so proud of all the development I've made with my little brain and body and overall acceptance of myself ☺️
Doing what I do best 🏋🏻♀️ I used to do it because it was fun but also because I wanted to look good. Now I do it for the mental health 😊 I was so embarrassed at the gym but thanks hubby for the videos today 💕
laundry day, see you there, under things, tumbling. wanna say, love your hair, here I go, mumbling 🎬 if anyone know what that is from you HAVE to DM me to chat b/c literally it is one of the best things. i had a really tough day at work yesterday so I'm taking today to do some self care and reset and rest 🧘🏼♀️
Event 8 Recap: You ever see a Water Cheetah in action? Haha spoiler alert- I’m not one😂. Madison Triplus- Swim, Paddleboard, Run. This was the first event Saturday morning. Swimming, running, & general endurance work aren’t my strengths. But I was still eager to see if I could hang in there. I came off the swim at the back of the pack. I ended up catching a few people on the paddleboard though.
Going into the run was the fun part. I saw @quany_quan 20sec ahead & I decided to gun it at the start of the run to pass him. I did. Then, about a minute later he passed me back. I said “Come on mannnn” as he ran by haha. My theory was this for pushing the run so early: Ever been in a workout where someone is 2 rounds ahead & it kind of defeats you so you subconsciously slow down? Ever been in a workout where you’re a half round behind & it energizes you so you speed up to try to catch them? I knew he was a good runner so I tried to bluff essentially- tried making him think I was going to hold that pace the entire time so he’d slow down once I got ahead a bit. Well - it didn’t work haha but it made for a fun race as he beat me by 8sec. 34th Place & was proud of my effort.
PS- If you want pictures of actual Water Cheetahs go to @tiaclair1 & @kristieramo pages. They beat the entire women’s AND men’s field in the event👀. @crossfitgames
