ABS SPAM (plus cutting tips - BONUS)
I did warn you 😂 weighed in at a new low of 57.5kg this morning and feeling good! Gonna go smash an upper body workout now and maybe some legs too WE’LL SEE 👀 feeling crazy energised rn but may possibly be the caffeine 😂 (I heart coffee).
It is 100% possible to GAIN in strength while you’re cutting, you just need to know what you’re doing. Here’s a few pointers that I’ve learnt from my own cutting experiences thus far:
💥 lower cals gradually - don’t go mental and drop several hundred cals all at once. It won’t help.
💥 don’t cut out any macronutrient entirely. This is a bit controversial as I know a lot of people love the keto life but honestly there are so many vital vitamins and minerals in veg/fruit/grains (all carbs!) that are EVEN MORE important to have when you are on reduced calories. Something to think about at least.
💥 lift heavy! Pls do not stop lifting heavy! You’re not doing yourself any favours by switching to high reps and low weights. Keep the weights heavy, form on point, and do some cardio after your lifting workouts. You’ll maintain more muscle mass and STRENGTH this way.
If you have any questions about cutting drop them here!
Aaaaand if you’re feeling like you want someone to tell you exactly what to do and take the guesswork out - shoot me a DM or email about coaching/plans.

Also have a great day!
Ok I’m done ✌🏻❤️

First day back at it since Saturday 😩. I had zero motivation to workout yesterday 🤷🏾♀️ I’ve been eating all the junk food my heart desired since Friday 😂 I’m only human and I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I’m the most disciplined person in the world! Don’t beat yourself up for screwing up, acknowledge it and move on 🙏🏾
STOP TRACKING MACROS ❌⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just kidding, you should do what works for you. However, I think it’s important to share my experiences with tracking so here I go. 🤷♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The reason I am sharing a progress picture here is that I was super afraid to stop tracking macros. I had been doing it for such a long time and most of my fitness progress was made while tracking macros. I was afraid that I would lose all my progress but instead, I stayed the same weight. 😊⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The left picture was taken a month before I stopped tracking and I was 2kg heavier but when I stopped tracking, I was around the same weight as I am now. I also learned to listen to my body more and I am not often overeating anymore (only when I have my period sometimes). 😁⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I tracked my macros for around two years. I think it was after a year or a year and a half I got a bit tired of it. I didn’t feel like I could do this for my whole life and it was costing me a lot of time, time that is so valuable to me as a student.🤔⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes I felt too restricted which made me overeat. I felt guilty because I wasn’t tracking or because I went over my macros and that caused me to eat whatever I can’t easily fit in my macros (read: chocolate, ice cream, cookies, chips, pizza…). 😨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In my opinion, it is never a good idea to do something you don’t see yourself doing for the rest of your life. You want to be healthy for the rest of your life, right That means you need to find something that fits your lifestyle. If you just start changing your habits or learning things, then of course it will be hard but I was tracking macros for 2 years and I was still not seeing myself do this for the rest of my life.🙃⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do I regret having tracked macros Not at all. I learned a lot like the nutritional value of different foods, how much I can eat of different foods, controlling my portions… I am happy that I have this knowledge now but I needed a change. 😕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you track your macros Comment below! 💕 #balancedfitstudent
#Throwbackthursday ... To when I couldn't handle not eating every 2 hrs.
To when I was mistaken often as a man.
To when I would train everyday until I couldn't train anymore.
To when I got my best friend to pierce my lip with a syringe.
To when I let my body control my life.
I miss the delts. But this is only a part of my life. Now time to uncover the rest of it.
Before looking back at these photos would make me feel shame, now I feel progress. Even though I've lost a good chunk of muscle I've gained so much perspective.
Good bye big Jill. Hello Jill!
