Trust the process and do the damn volume.
A couple from tonight: Deads @ 345 for 3x3 and 2 ct pause bench @ 165 for 3x4 at RPE 8
IBS: An intestinal disorder causing pain in the belly, gas, diarrhea, and constipation.
AKA the most uncomfortable and draining condition ever.
So many people suffer from poor gut health and inflammation but don’t know what to do about it or ignore it. I’ve struggled with it for years, but this past year it has been the worst and most severe ever. Here is me, today, experiencing a severe flare up... my stomach is “bloated” and rock hard, the pain is excruciating, and my entire body is uncomfortable.☹️☹️
My most common triggers are dairy, fibrous veggies/fruits (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, brussel sprouts, apples, pears), meats, gluten, and highly processed sugary foods. Every persons triggers are different and every body reacts differently.... this is my body and its reaction. This is my REALITY. My stomach isn’t always flat and I’m not always feeling great.

Okuurrrr two things 👏🏻; •
1.I did not wanna go today y’all. All kinds of nope happening on the way to the gym. This week has been a whirlwind!!! (Of both bad and good, mostly good but exhausting regardless!) I went in with a plan, got in the zone, and executed... no feelings just work. Having a plan is so important to your commitment and your consistency. If you’re unsure where to start- reach out to someone who knows their stuff and can help you with your specific goals!! •
2. I had a moment of self realization which caused me to take this picture. There was a girl working out near me who had the type of body I used to think was “perfect”. She was tall and slender (like a model) with a tiny waist and a great looking 🍑 for a girl with such a small frame. You could tell she spends a lot of time on her butt but, not much else. Anywho... I saw her and remember thinking “gosh, I used to want to look like that. I definitely don’t look like that now... I’ll never look that way, because that’s not my body”
Homegirl had a great looking body, I’ll give it to her for staying healthy!
I realized though that I’ll never look like that and I am actually completely okay with it. Because one: that’s not my body type; and two: I’ve worked damn hard on this body, and I’m so grateful to be able so see how strong it is and continues to get every single day. Ive learned to embrace all my curves, my tree trunk thighs, and my girl guns 💪🏼 and while some days are still a struggle to be confident, today... I was so proud of my body. •
Never compare yourself. Do your best every single day and be proud of what your body does for you. You only get ☝🏼. If you made it this far... thanks for reading about my day. 😘

Sometimes you’ve just got to remind yourself that your still a baby girl and it’s always been a Hot Girl Summer!!! .
Not even going to lie but recently I’ve not been really appreciating my body. Although I want to be way more healthier and physically fit; I’ve not even given enough credit where it’s due. Well right now my body may not look like how I want it to be in head; but wow it’s been through a lot and continues to fight through all of the adversities thrown it’s way. I might complain my belly ain’t tight 😝 but you know what, I’m just going to accept and appreciate it as it is! I can’t come and kill myself!!! The plan is to work on how I can enhance it (naturally) by feeding it right and taking real care of it!!! .
Love your body more and I think it might just love you more right back. #VienntySays .
