The harder you work for something,the greater you’ll feel when you achieve it.
Anything is possible if you put your mind to it, is it gonna be hard? Fuck yes!! But don’t let that stop you 👊🏽
At the end of this day, all I can say is that my heartbeat when crazy but not because I lifted too much 😅
So much stressful things happened today, I'm beggining to feel sick and I'm glad this day is finally over ...
But I always try to keep my smile 🌞
I hope your day was better than mine ! 😘

À la fin de cette journée, tout ce que je peux dire c'est que mon rythme cardiaque s'est emballé et pas parce que j'ai trop soulevé à la salle 😅
Beaucoup de choses stressantes sont arrivées aujourd'hui, je commence à être malade et je suis contente que cette journée se termine ...
Mais j'essaie toujours de garder le sourire 🌞
J'espère que votre journée était meilleure que la mienne ! 😘

One of the best exercises for you, whether you’re trying to build muscle or lose weight (or both) HAS to be the squat.
However, it’s also one of the most difficult exercises to do properly unless you actually know what you’re doing.
If your goals are to:
1) Build muscle and get stronger, squats will get you there faster.
2) Lose weight and get ‘toned,’ squats will get you there faster.
3) Look better naked, squats will get you there faster.Get healthier and happier, squats will get you there faster.
Long story short: squats will make every part of your life better!!! Squats are a compound movement – which means it’s a movement that uses more than one joint (your hip and knee joints) to complete.
A simple bodyweight squat workout uses almost every muscle group in the body – and if you add a dumbbell or barbell into the equation, I would even argue that they use every single major muscle group to complete.
Just think about it – in addition to your “legs,” you need your hips, your back and core, your shoulders and arms. Nothing is left out with this monster movement.
Squats will help strengthen your entire body, both your bones and your muscles (and your knees!), and increase flexibility.
There are many different types of barbell squats: the three most common are the high bar back squat (sometimes called an “Olympic squat” or “Oly Squat”), a low bar back squat, and a front squat.
All of these use a barbell – the big difference being the placement of the barbell.
The placement of the barbell changes up a few things about the mechanics and geometry of the squat, and because of this the muscle recruitment is different. The low bar is aposterior chain dominant squat, while the high bar and front squat are a quad dominant squat.
How to squat proper form :
1)Stand with the bar on your upper-back, and your feet shoulder-width apart
2)Squat down by pushing your knees to the side while moving hips back
3)Break parallel by Squatting down until your hips are lower than your knees
4)Squat back up while keeping your knees out and chest up
5)Stand with your hips and knees locked at the top.
I may not be there yet, but I’m closer then what I was yesterday! 👊

Tbh being very self-conscious and an ED survivor can be very difficult sometimes. I’m in a very bad phase in which I mainly doubt about the mass gain and everything revolving around it.
Sure, the difference is visible and the choice is the healthiest in the long term, but it doesn’t mean that my inner self is agreeing with it all the time. My ED was mainly triggered by people comments back in my teen years and the fact that I broke mentally, when realized how bad I felt abt myself. That’s still a problem nowadays. Acknowledging that my weakness’s are mainly still the same is an important step, but also made me feel weak tbh. I have had support through the whole process, but life isn’t always easy and can hit you pretty hard and remind you why you failed and suffered from bulimia for years.
I’m currently clean since nearly 5 years, but I had several periods of “relapse” where the idea of purging was tempting enough, especially when I realized the mass I’ve gained over the years and how I don’t fit in my bulimic year’s clothes (stupid tbh, but a sad reality for those who went through ED’s)
This post will probably disappear soon enough since it’s not very me to post this kind of transformations. But for anyone interested, it’s a 3 year transformation.
Just an important reminder that sometimes we deal with more than people think and that progress is not only made physically, but also mentally. Cheers to being clean even if I struggle massively and admit my weaknesses. #youarenotalone
