Lifting heavy weights has completely transformed my body and most importantly MY MINDSET! You probably found your way here through my previous blog LIFTmeupFitness or my reddit post- I wanted to update this post a bit from what it was previously.
Here are some of the major things I’ve learned through the past few years:
2.) A high protein/high veggie/low carb diet is incredibly helpful in helping in maintaining a lean body state for me. (I touch on my diet particulars here.)
3.) The scale IS NOT IMPORTANT. Read more about why here.
The “Before” pic above was taken a couple years before the “after.”
After pic was probably 2 years ago.
This is me today- In all honesty I’m not as “ripped” as I was before, but it’s OK. I’m not as fitness-focused- but I do maintain a consistent workout routine and eat healthy 70-80% of the time. I’ve learned to love my body at every state its at. And I think that’s the most important progress I’ve made. I don’t berate myself for enjoying some dark beer or pizza or what have you. I indulge often but I also eat greens often. It’s all about balance!
