    The awesome part about recovering from a hip injury is the existence of a Smith machine that will help you get to where you need to be. I can almost squat fully now and I can do stiff legged deadlifts with full range of motion! Loving the speedy recovery!!!! And yay, I see quads. #progress #motivationmonday #motivation #fitness #recovery #doyouevenlift #girls_who_lift #quads #squats #iifym #bodybuilding #intermittentfasting #bikinicompetitor #yourmom

    First day back at lower body training after my hip injury!! 💪😌 Every rep was difficult and I couldn’t go half as heavy as I used to or in full range of motion, BUT I listened to my body the entire time and only did what I could. It felt great to get the blood flowing in my glutes and lower back and see my range of motion improve drastically in a matter of days. Recovering fast. Can’t wait to be 100% again! #injury #recovery #progress #fitness #doyouevenlift #bikinicompetitor #balance #bodybuilding #iifym #intermittentfasting #yourmom

    Immy’s Kitchen presents: Coconut avocado smoothie with whipped “Queam” (Whipped Quark Cream) aka Yummiest Som-Bitch EVER! I’m obsessed with how healthy and macro-friendly @elliquark is, and how many possibilities I can make happen in my kitchen with this awesome lean protein. If you don’t have access to Quark though, you can use Greek Yogurt. It’d be a tad more sour. 
Ingredients: (serves 2)
✅1 avocado 
✅8 fl oz (240mL)100% coconut water
✅170g Quark
✅2-3 packets stevia 

-Blend coconut water and avocado in blender until smooth pour into cups.
-Whip quark with 1 packet stevia. Top like you would with whipped cream. Add cinnamon sticks. Enjoy! 
Macros (per serving): 9g protein/8g carbs/10g fat

    Since it’s #TransformationTuesday , I would like to give you an update of a second transformation I went through—one that is MUCH more mental than physical. It is also to prove that: 
1⃣ Lifting heavy weights does NOT make a woman grow bulky man muscles.
2⃣ The number on the scale is NOT everything.
3⃣ skinny doesn’t always equal healthy. 
My first transformation, I have posted here several times. I lost a drastic amount of weight in late 2006 and maintained a 118-120lbs range weight for 6 years, thinking I was healthy. I was wrong. I had a relatively high body fat percentage regardless of being thin, I had close to no muscle, under-ate because I had slow metabolism (muscle gives you a fast metabolism, yet I was clueless back then). All I did was endless cardio and light weight circuit training. I wasn’t confident in clothes regardless of being small, because I was flabby everywhere and I still had rolls when I put on something tight. In 2012 I found out why: I wasn’t lifting heavy and wasn’t eating enough of the right things. Throughout the span of 2 years of doing it right, learning about nutrition, researching daily, getting certified as a PT and competing in bikini bodybuilding, I learned how to put on the right kind of weight (muscle) and burn off the pounds of fat. I put on over 10lbs but lost 4% body fat (and this isn’t even my contest lean. I come in at about 18% in season). For the past 2 years I have been consistently isolating body parts, lifting 5 days a week and doing shorter, high intensity cardio 2-5 days a week depending on how close I am to a competition. I squat and deadlift heavier than my own bodyweight. I eat 6 times a day. I don’t see any hulk man muscles, I only see feminine muscles aka curves. I fit in a size 2 top and size 4 bottoms and I no longer feel self conscious that I won’t look decent in my clothes. I am no longer obsessed with the number on the scale. I listen to my body and do what I know works for me rather than what other people are doing or try to tell me to do. When you pay good attention to what you put into your body, you learn a lot about what your body responds to. Happier now than ever!

    I am severely dependent on and efficient with the art of planning/organizing and note-taking. My methods are old school, as I prefer to physically write things down, color code them with crayolas and graph them up from scratch. It’s personal and it makes me stick to things as well as remember them. I have my own day planner, a gym log, a nutrition log and a separate log for my clients. But seriously, you know it’s mine when you see the @bodybuildingcom sticker. You know I spend way too much money on that website. Not complaining though. They’re fucking awesome. #bbcomsticker #bodybuildingcom #bodybuilding #plantosucceed #trusttheprocess #fitness #bikinicompetitor #personaltrainer #atypepersonality #motivation #motivationmonday #iifym #yourmom

    There’s so much more to life and if you spend more time really looking inward, you’ll stop existing and you’ll start living. Sure I learned the hard way. We all have our stories. Doesn’t make it less possible for anyone. Keywords: persepective, following through. #Preach #Wisdom
