“Do what you love and love what you do” 👆🏼
One of my most favorite quotes... I am in the pursuit of doing only what I love. That is what has set me on this journey, the desire to do the things I love.
QUESTION...are you doing what you love? Do you absolutely love what you are doing? If not I challenge you, take the leap and DO WHAT YOU LOVE!
Get your sleep back and get your life back. Lucid is designed for people who want to feel more fulfilled by taking action in their life. For people who are tired of skating by on ‘good enough’ sleep or just barely scraping by each day. It’s for people who want to make big changes: to feel better and do better for their mind, body, and spirit by capturing the natural power of sleep that they deserve.
Lucid is different from other sleep aids. Lucid is the first sleep aid specifically formulated with traditional adaptogenic ingredients to support your entire sleep wake cycle: from the time you go to sleep, through the night, until it’s time to wake up, and beyond. Lucid supports deeper sleep which leads to a more refreshed wake up and improved daytime energy.
Lucid’s ingredients have been used for centuries within Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic Medicine to holistically promote balance, regulation, and resilience. These natural powerhouses usher you through the night and lead you to greet you the morning sun. Lucid wakes you up to your potential. Lucid is for those who are ready to take on their personal adventure.
Have you done this pose❓❓❓
1. If you are practicing the supported version, set a bolster or firm, long pillow on the floor against the wall.
2. Begin the pose by sitting with your left side against the wall. Your lower back should rest against the bolster, if you’re using one.
3. Gently turn your body to the left and bring your legs up onto the wall. If you are using a bolster, shift your lower back onto the bolster before bringing your legs up the wall. Use your hands for balance as you shift your weight.
4. Lower your back to the floor and lie down. Rest your shoulders and head on the floor.
5. Shift your weight from side-to-side and scoot your buttocks close to the wall. Let your arms rest open at your sides, palms facing up. If you’re using a bolster, your lower back should now be fully supported by it.
6. Let the heads of your thigh bones (the part of the bone that connects in the hip socket) release and relax, dropping toward the back of your pelvis.
7. Close your eyes. Hold for 5-10 minutes, breathing with awareness.
8. To release, slowly push yourself away from the wall and slide your legs down to the right side. Use your hands to help press yourself back up into a seated position.

This is my current back progress whilst in being in a gaining phase for around a month and a half.
Some of my goals this phase are:
- Increase back width as well as thickness.
- Build mass on my shoulders especially rear delts.
- Progressively overload weekly on bench press, squat, overhead press and deadlift.
- Programme in some new exercises. I’ve chosen front squats, trap bar deadlifts, Bulgarian split squats and T bar rows.
- And most importantly, make sure that I am having enough rest to be able to facilitate growth.
What are your goals this winter? ❄️ 💪
🖤 ✨life update✨ 🖤
2019 isn't over yet but so much has already happened TO and FOR me this year, that I would like to recap on, to give you guys a glimpse into my life. I haven't shared a lot of personal stuff with you lately and I would like to change that ☺️❤️ Let's start by saying that I went into 2019 VERY unhappy with my life. I wasn't happy with where I was nor who I was and I wasn't happy at university. I felt very isolated and I had nothing to work towards... ❌
Everything changed when, at the end of January, I was sent straight to the ER after a doctor's appointment 🚨 That night I was told I had a huge ovarian tumor and it needed to be removed immediately 😷
At this point they couldn't tell, if the tumor was malignant or not and within a few days I had surgery. Luckily it was❕ NOT❕but the experience itself was very scary and traumatic enough for me.
👉🏻 So a few days later I decided I would drop out of college, a few weeks later I moved out of my apartment and left everything behind. Relationships, memories and any chance of getting a degree in international business 👌🏻👀 In all honesty, I never looked back. Instead I started at 0 and reinvented myself.
I started my new journey by sending out applications, working on my mindset, getting new tattoos, adopting a baby cat and building new friendships ❤️ In August I finally started an apprenticeship in a company where I'm highly valued as a person. I'm confident to say that I'm good at what I'm doing there and I'm happy and grateful to be in this position 😊
I WOULD NOT say I got lucky and everything just fell into place for me ❌
I've worked hard for where I am now. I'm constantly working on becoming a better version of myself trough discipline, hard training and goal setting 🏆
So yeah, I started this new chapter in my life and it's a good one ☺️ ______________________________________
We are given a gift every single morning. Every day, we are given the opportunity to start over. To start fresh. We can choose to use that gift to become a healthier version of ourselves, or we can waste that gift and stay the same. The choice is up to you. What will be your decision today?
THE MORNING SICKNESS HAS FINALLY GONE!! 😁🤮 I cant describe how happy I am to finally say this! I have really struggled the past few months with feeling sick and exhausted and I am finally out the other side!

Thank you to everyone that took time out of their day to support me, even if it was just one attempt. The highlight of my mock meet was this 585lb pull for my top single. Failed 605 due to the lock out.
Bench: 305lb (touch & go)
