2015 ➡️ 2018
Left: 49kg. Just me and my long back 💁🏻♀️ No but seriously, months and months of non-stop partying, poor eating and questionable health habits left me the skinniest that I have ever been in my life. It was no suprise that I was left with absolutely no bum, but rather a floppy piece of skin at the bottom of my back (have you ever seen a pancake hanging off a table?😂🥞)- I was SO INSECURE about it. .
Right: 61kg. Three years of weight training. Three years of squats, deadlifts, HIP THRUSTS, lunges, step ups, RDLs, hack squats and abductors. Three years of trial and error. Three years of weight fluctuations, plateus, doughnuts, IIFYM, diet plans, and (finally) learning about correct nutrition.
Thanks to my #asian genetics, I don’t have a naturally curvy shape, nor was I blessed with a plentiful booty. I remember looking in the mirror everyday when I first started training and getting so discouraged because I didn’t see any immediate and extreme change😂
This shit takes time- muscle growth is probably one of the most painstakingly slow processes in the world, and I’m glad that I was patient and put in the work that was needed. .
Aaaand without a solid nutrition plan in place, all this hard work meant nothing. I didn’t really start to see the change that I wanted until I started eating for the body that I wanted; so get help, find a coach if you need to, do your research, and educate yourself (but keep it scientific/evidence based pls🤓).
I know that I may not have the biggest, most inspirational butt on the internet, but I am honestly proud of my little gains. .
Guys, nothing is impossible as long as you eat your carbs, do your hipthrusts, and be patient 💫
Oh and happy Hump Day 🍑😉
