💞Ok guys! Here it is. My 12-week postpartum progress!!! . ⏮Pre-baby, I was slim, toned and itty bitty preparing for my next NPC Bikini Fitness competition! 1 month in, I found out I was 8-weeks pregnant. My goal was to keep working out but my body had other plans! I was on bed rest most of my pregnancy and gained a whopping 50lbs! I’ve never been able to maintain anything over 118 so having that extra weight definitely didn’t sit well with me! . ❗️I’ve been working really hard to get my body back down to a slim toned physique! I know I’ll never be as small as I was with these new child bearing hips and all😜 but I’m ok with that! . It’s just the beginning but I’m READY! I’ll be starting my new FemBod Program next week with a few other fierce ladies!💪🏽❣️ . 🚨It’s not too late to join us. Drop me a message and let’s talk📩 #PostBabyBody #Postpartum #12WeekProgress #FemFitBod #FemBodChallenge

“Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.” - C.S. Lewis - Are you someone who only goes hard when there are other people near you in the gym or when the camera is on you? Do you perform your cardio even when you don’t want to? Are you really hitting your assigned numbers every day? - - Many physique athletes have a bad habit of “turning up” when the eyes are on them, and then slack off when no one is watching. Unfortunately those people that choose to slack off when the attention is not on them will eventually be caught. Those that work hard no matter the circumstance will shine on stage. - - This not only applies to physique athletes but anyone who has a job. Do you only work hard when your boss is watching and then slack off as soon as they leave the room? - - Work hard and do the right thing no matter the circumstance.

With getting a terrible cold, 2 midterms, and working a 30 hour week.... my body did not react well and I woke up feeling extremely down. Obviously I didn't go to the gym for a week since I was sick and all I had an appetite for was ice cream. I felt I took 5 steps back in my prep and almost wanted to give up. Whenever I think about giving up I look back at where I started. A week off track won't put you that far off. I have to think positive and look forward to the end result of this prep. #transformationtuesday #npcprep #npcbikini #teambossbodies

The NWFT Bikini Seminar was a blast! It was so great to work with both experienced competitors and women new to the sport! I tell my bikini prep clients this all the time, but I personally learn so much and take away so much value from working with others! I have knowledge and experience from placing top 5 in over 10 competitions all over the country the last 3 years, I am a NASM certified personal trainer working out of the Lion’s Den, as well as a fitness nutrition specialist and coach (I also have a unique background bc I have my bachelors in Engineering from UW and am a certified project management professional with 5 years engineering industry experience, hehe 😉) and I feel like every individual I work with has something to bring to the table and teach me! The feedback from our first seminar was so positive and I’m happy to share lessons learned with the girls who attended and @aslanfit! I am so passionate about health, wellness, fitness and the sport of bodybuilding... stay tuned to learn more and share in that passion as a community for our next NW Fitness Bikini Seminar coming up next month! Email me at kerrinmichele@gmail.com if you want to get put on the mailing list and be notified as soon as our registration goes live! 💪👙#fitness #fitfam #bikinicompetitor

Do you get frustrated when you don’t see immediate results? 🤬 . ME TOO!🙋🏼‍♀️ . Results take time & consistency⏰ . Even though we all know this, it doesn’t mean we struggle with it any less! 😒 . This year, my personal progress and results have been super slow/delayed! 👎🏼 . I keep putting in the work day after day, week after week, and have only been seeing tiny changes! 👀 . This is extremely frustrating! 😑 . But, I don’t give up because I know I am on the right track! 👻 . See, the problem is that we are so used to instant gratification and seeing immediate results, that when we don’t, we give up!💀 . What we need to understand though, is that the results are coming, sometimes they come fast in the beginning and then stall. Sometimes they are slow in the beginning and then we see BIG changes! 🤗 . DON’T GIVE UP!! 👙 Just keep putting in the work! . I’m finally seeing my waist come in and a little more definition as I lose some fat here! So I’m getting excited!😅 . I can’t wait to see what package we will bring to the stage this year!🎉 .

Rob bailey says there's another level beyond mental physical and emotional failure. I choose to reach past that, to push myself beyond my limits and levitate this body and life. I love my work, I enjoy giving back to the community as a volunteer fire fighter, and I find the greatest joy in pushing myself beyond my physical limits in the gym and helping others over come theirs. Push beyond your limits make this life amazing 💕 @themusclequest @lendzon #bodybuilding #firefighter #npccolorado #npcbikini #workhard #nevergiveup #grind #nextlevel

Transformation vs Reality? . . . Neither of these pics are my reality. The one on the left is me full of water and depressed. It’s after I first started competing and my metabolism hit all messed up. Not loving myself or my body. . . . The right one is nationals. The leanest I have ever been. The best prep I have ever had. But I need you to realize how the I actually am here. I’m a very muscular girl. So obviously muscle weighs more. In off season right now I’m sitting around 125 lbs. in the photo I was 105 lbs. that may not sound light, but on a muscular frame it is. . . . The point of this post is we fluctuate constantly. I’m finally in a good place. Im starting prep again for my season. I did not have ridiculous weight gain this time. My last prep was easier than it’s ever been. The reason? No stress. Justin was behind me and supporting me the entire time. Thus diet and without game is mental. It’s all mental. When you break mentally your body breaks too. After all the transitions I’m finally feeling like I have me back. That’s a great feeling. I’m ready for this year to be a great one. . . . #transformationtuesday #loveyourself #loveyourbody #npc #ifbb #roadtopro #personaltrainer #lasvegas #vegaslife #motivation #girlswithtattoos #girlswholift #bikinicompetitor #npcbikini #fitfam #dedication #happiness #createyourownfuture #believeinyourself #keepgoing #istandalone

@laurengaskey "MONDAY MOTIVATION....progress. First competition ➡️Last competition. I've never had a client look back and be disappointed in "how long" it took them to achieve their goals... just the satisfaction that they made it to the end! Sometimes progress can seem slow, but it's not about the length of time it took, but the satisfaction that despite the struggles and adversities, you made it! I am currently taking on a couple more online clients for summer. Competition prep OR weight loss and toning clients! I'll be posting transformation pictures all week On my fitness page: @fitnesswithlg Don't let another day pass by without doing something today- 1 little step in the right direction today could mean huge changes in your future!" #mondaymotivation #starttheweekright #justdoit #doitfor #goals #motivation #dedication #consistency #npc #npcbikini #bodybuilding

And the cut continues. Fasted, steady state (stairmaster) weight training (back and shoulders today which is my favorite!) and some HIIT. I'm now averaging a calorie burn of 800 -1,000 with my workouts. 💪 Now feed me or fight me! 👊 . . . #pre#prep #prep #thegrind #9weeksout #timetoshred #backandshoulders #fastedcardio #hiit #hiitcardio #stairmaster #npc #npcbikini #strong #strongblonde #instafitness #momoffour #momoftwins #gymjunkie #gymlife #shelifts #montana #montanastrong #workhard #hardwork #itsnotforeveryone

got some really sad news today.. a few months ago i started having pain in my back and left arm. and i started to get really bad headaches. it felt like something was pressed on a nerve. last week i went to the chiropractor, and today i found out the worst thing ever.. i can no longer do squats. all of the weight on my back has caused pre-mature degeneration in my neck and back. and for the next 4 weeks i cannot lift anything above 10 lbs. i am extremely upset, but i am glad i found out early. so from here on out i will be totally changing my training. light weight x high reps. i also wanna say this, if you are young (like me) pls be careful lifting. i did not realize how harmful it can be. sometimes lifting 155-185 lbs is not the best thing. it might look super cool, but it will do more harm than good. don’t be like me.. i’m 18 and have to go to the chiropractor 3x’s and week now😭

Leg day!!! When my trainer asks if I can come in early at 7:30am?!?! Um, yes!!! I might be tired, but my training and time with my trainer is so important to me. Today was another fantastic leg day! Increased on the leg press again!!! Did 2 sets at 130lbs. No video of that today, but next time there will be. Not going to lie, I so can't move right now!! Lol. Love it!! 💕💪🏻👏#bikinicompetitorintraining #npcbikini #womenwholift #liftheavy #healthylifestyle #gome #booty #legday #fitsandiego #completenutritionpowayca #newpersonalbest #strongissexy

LEG DAY TRISET. No more than 15 seconds rest during transition. That's 47 reps per set - complete 4 times! 🔙🔚♨️. . •Banded Deadlifts x 15reps w/62lb KB. . •Split Squat w/20lb DBs x 8 reps each leg. . •Squat Jumps bodyweight alternate x 8 wide/8 narrow. . . . . I did this triset towards the beginning of my lift and spent the end focusing of negatives and power.

I have too many flaws to be perfect and too many blessings to be ungrateful. I am awkward. I laugh at stupid things. I have anxiety. I’m blunt. I’m not very sympathetic. I’m a workohalic. I overthink things. I’m hard on myself. I question everything even though I have sound judgment. I make mistakes... sometimes more than once. BUT all of my quirks are what make me who I am and I was talking with a friend recently who reminded me that all of the things I view as flaws are part of my charm. So keeping that in mind, I am just over here completely and unapologetically being me. #montefitness #adofitness #teamado #personaldevelopment #workinprogress #personaltrainer #shelifts #girlswholift #fitfam #npc #npcbikini

Body stopped responding. Coach put me on a diet break. Apparently 20+ weeks of dieting and body said...enough. Stuck at 128, no matter the time of day, how many high carb days I have, or increase in cardio. - Going to enjoy this week and than...keep...moving...forward #trusttheprocess #teamprophysique

L'Avocado, il frutto" grasso" per eccellenza, viene particolarmente apprezzato per le sue proprietà benefiche. La presenza di fibre, grassi buoni, vitamine del gruppo B, vitamina K, potassio, vitamina E e, vitamina A e vitamina C, conferiscono all’avocado proprietà eccellenti per la salute.L'apporto di acidi grassi monoinsaturi fornito dall' avocado riesce a far calare drasticamente il "colesterolo cattivo”. Le #nutrizionisteperamiche vi consigliano quindi di consumarlo spesso, aggiungendolo per esempio alle insalate.

“Iniziare i pasti con verdura cotta e/o cruda a volontà”. Perché i nutrizionisti tendono a dare questo consiglio? La verdura ha un buon potere saziante pertanto iniziare il pasto con verdura cotta e/o cruda a volontà aiuta a non abbuffarsi di altre pietanze con contenuti calorici decisamente maggiori. Inoltre la verdura è salutare perché: 1. Aiuta ad assimilare meno grassi e zuccheri; 2. Evita i picchi glicemici; 3. Regola il transito intestinale grazie all’elevato contenuto di fibra; 4. Garantisce un buon apporto di vitamine e sali minerali essenziali per il corretto funzionamento del nostro organismo. N.B: bevendo due bicchieri di acqua prima di mangiare la verdura, la sensazione di sazietà aumenterà notevolmente! #nutrizionisteperamiche

Yogurt greco e frutta fresca:un abbinamento vincente per una corretta alimentazione. Lo yogurt è fonte di proteine ma anche di calcio , la frutta apporta dolcezza e zuccheri semplici che vengono subito assimilati per produrre energia. Un esempio di frutta potrebbero essere,come in questo caso, le fragole: ottima fonte di fibra, potassio, calcio e di vitamina C. Le #nutrizionisteperamiche vi consigliano inoltre di preferire lo yogurt greco 0% a quello tradizionale poiché ha una quantità minore di zuccheri e sodio ma più proteine, le quali hanno un potere saziante.
