Hey Lions, don’t forget... SUCCESS is measured over time.

Small incremental steps that work towards one goal will bring great success. Do the thing, don’t grow weary, don’t go too wide, and go as deep as you can go!

Success is not a destination. “Success is who you’ve become along the journey.” - Jim Rohn

It remains fascinating to me that one of the things I struggle with the most in lifting (other than pissing off my coach, which I’m really skilled at but causes so many problems) is food. Up until a month ago I owned a prepared meal service, so you’d think this would be easy... wrong. One of the gifts of this pause in the action while I look for new income is that I’m getting a handle back on my eating. I didn’t eat enough for breakfast today, so I literally ran out of gas in the middle of lifting today. I was famished for protein... so a lovely salad with local veggies and a can of tuna was like #mannafromheaven ❤️🥗❤️ #gwpl #powerliftingwomen #powerlifting #oldladygains #viejastrong #training #workdontwish #chickswholift #masterslifter #competition #meetprep #girlchef #usapl #irontherapy #womenwholift #attackthelift #sbd #workdontwish #persistence #fitchef #fitfoodie #salad #tunasalad

I did a thing this weekend. I went with zero expectations other than to enjoy myself, and I think I did just that! Had a great time with @liset1121 @nat53kg @taylorlumpp @ms.monica_lifts and @lisandraparra Thanks to @hannibalking_ for hanging with me for my weigh in 😊 Just missed having @andreadirico there 😔 Special thanks to @camargo_oly for literally running back and forth like a madman from platform to platform to coach every single one of the #teamOC athletes. Don’t think for one second that we don’t notice your efforts. Onward and upward now to the next one. #masterslifter #teamOC #viejastrong #2019ao3

Para hacer lo que te gusta, primero debes aprender a amar y apreciar aquello que haces. Si no aprecias el trabajo o las tareas cotidianas que realizas actualmente, no podrás manifestar tu potencial. Tu "depósito de combustible" estará casi vacío. Cuando estás vivo a medias es menos probable que te lleguen oportunidades. Mientras no pongas todo tu corazón y tu alma en todo lo que haces no esperes atraer oportunidades para hacer lo que te gusta. ¿Por qué deberían llegarte oportunidades para hacer cosas mayores si no has dominado tus actividades actuales? Cuando tu actividad supera lo que se espera de ti, aumentas la probabilidad de crear oportunidades mejores.  #viejastrong #vivalavieja #bewaretheoldlions #viejaway #BrutalmenteElegante #GoingGrande #BeYourBestVieja #SteelFactoryNation #bemorehuman #beautifultrauma #sexymaster #masterathlete #mombod #masterover45 @viejostrong @steelfactorycrossfit

My IG posts have been a way for me to record my powerlifting training. Part of my realization in the last month of chaos has been around food though, and I want to address that. I am a chef. I lost the food production part of that business this month. That has been very dramatic for me, and very sad. But it’s also been a liberation and a reconnection to what food means to me. I know that food is 80% of what makes my body be what it can be. My training with the #iron is critical, but the food is what builds my body. So I’m reigniting that record here. Welcome back #foodphotos this is, after all, #cheflife ❤️💪🏼❤️ #gwpl #powerliftingwomen #powerlifting #oldladygains #viejastrong #training #workdontwish #chickswholift #masterslifter #competition #meetprep #girlchef #usapl #irontherapy #womenwholift #attackthelift #sbd #workdontwish #persistence #fitchef #fitfoodie

Back squats this week moved up to 235 # (bar 55 #) 5x3 only 3 sets shown, changed my stance a little wider w toes pointing outward to facilitate the ascend while driving my knees out from the home.

Bench this week 175 # getting challenged with this weight it was a struggle to squeeze x4 reps out on the 5th set, I wanted 5 but it wasn’t there, and now looking at 180 # next time I bench hoping to hit it for at least 3-4.

I really like this photograph from regionals last month because it’s emblematic of where I am in life right now, and also one of the reasons I powerlift. Life is hard, there are a lot of knock you to your knees moments. I’m in the middle of that tumult right now, and it sucks. However, it’s only failure if you stop. I may be temporarily down, but I ain’t out... not by a long shot. This is the grind before lockout. #gwpl #grind #powerliftingwomen #powerlifting #oldladygains #viejastrong #training #workdontwish #chickswholift #masterslifter #competition #meetprep #girlchef #usapl #irontherapy #womenwholift #attackthelift #sbd #workdontwish #persistence #usaplregionals

5x3 @80kg - my motivation is nonexistent this week. My shoulder hurts like hell and every set makes me want to cry.

I have been power cleaning and jerking again 😆 I have worked all the way up to around 59 kilos. I do miss weightlifting 🏋🏽 I still have hopes ❤️ I have been doing the Booty by Bret programming for sometime and I love it. I am realistic in my goals and taking each step slow. I am super happy where I am now 😊 #weightlifting #bootybybret #mastersweightlifting #americanmastersweightlifting #fitover40 #osteochondralallograft #tibialtubercleosteotomy #kneesurgery #rpmaintenance #viejastrong #fleoshorts

So I dislocated my elbow a while back & just had it “fixed” at the #chiro ❤️❤️❤️ What I’ve learned from this experience is that if you want to lift you need A. A really good coach & B. A really good #chiropractor - thankfully I have both. Hopefully I won’t drop my #benchpress on myself any more 😂😂😂 #accesories #dbrows #gwpl #powerliftingwomen #powerlifting #oldladygains #viejastrong #training #workdontwish #chickswholift #masterslifter #competition #meetprep #girlchef #usapl #irontherapy #womenwholift #attackthelift

29 weeks till @im703puertorico!! I wasn’t born with a natural talent to be great at any specific sport. I’m not a great swimmer, I just learned to bike just a year ago and I’m an ok runner. I love CrossFit but I struggle with my mobility to do some of the exercises. But I do understand about putting in the hard work and that like everything in life things take time. I don’t easily give up and I’m not looking for fast results. I want to see improvement little by little. My goal is to do what I love to do without getting injured, overtraining and beating my body down. It’s about listening to my body, not just when I’m working out or training but the rest of the 22 hours left of my day. How I recover has been my magic pill. What is yours? #whoop #myprocoach #cfbeautifuldisaster #swimbikerun #nevertolate #fitover50 #viejastrong

This looks way better than it felt. Fucking around with #lowbarsquat & it is great #outathewhole but unracking is super awkward. And we’re back to a million sets of 3’s with like two little 1’s thrown in to keep me from perishing. 95kg 🤬💪🏼🤬 @brute_force_strength is trying to kill me this cycle 😂😂😂 #gwpl #powerliftingwomen #powerlifting #oldladygains #viejastrong #training #workdontwish #chickswholift #masterslifter #competition #meetprep #girlchef #usapl

I can’t really express how happy I was to get back to @midwestpowergym today. I love competing, I really truly do. But it’s disruptive to the daily ritual of training... and that’s truly my spiritual centering space. I’m excited to have a new program & goal with #usaplrawnationals in October, and one of the biggest challenges (besides gainz) is honestly, sustainably dealing with my weight. I want to clarify this because it’s a very specific goal with a very specific reason... and it’s different than traditional “diets.” My goal is NOT to get thin, or ripped, it’s to be comfortably at the top of my weight class without going over or having to “cut” the week before I compete. I compete in the 72kg class. If I come in over that I would be competing against women who are at 84kg... more than 20 pounds bigger than me. There’s no way to be competitive with them with that big a difference. Training at the weight I will compete at is far preferable to what I did last week, cut 8 # in water weight & extreme calorie deficit. So, right now the number on the second picture is as important as the one on the first... I need to hit & maintain 155 # body weight. So, last cycle I trained at 165-162... that’s gotta change with continued increase in lift weights. #159.6bw #competitionprep #gwpl #powerliftingwomen #powerlifting #oldladygains #viejastrong #training #workdontwish #chickswholift #masterslifter

Tomorrow’s the day... three lifts, nine attempts... oh, and weigh in. The biggest battle has been the last thing. The goal is 72kg or 158.9 #. Come on over and I’m competing against women I can’t touch because I’m too small. So today was about eating, sweating and mentally preparing. Hopefully tomorrow I can say “Nationals here I come!” 🤞🤞🤞 #gwpl #powerliftingwomen #powerlifting #oldladygains #viejastrong #training #workdontwish #chickswholift #usapl #usaplmidwestregionals

This deload week has been kinda frustrating... I made a lot of gains late in prep for this competition & I feel like that process got cut short. I’m also cranky as fuq because I’m severely cutting calories & drinking uncomfortable amounts of water. My normal lack of patience is being tested and of course I fail that every time. I did however stick with the program today... my final lift before I compete on Sunday 5x3@80kg 😑😑😑 #gwpl #powerliftingwomen #powerlifting #oldladygains #viejastrong #training #workdontwish #chickswholiftheavy

33 weeks till @im703puertorico! “Life throws challenges and every challenge comes with rainbows and light to conquer it.” This week speed workout was great! I felt strong and was able to hit my numbers. Thanks to @crazymuddermel she is a human calculator and kept me on track! Even my endurance run was good! Just finish riding 37 miles on the bike and felt I could keep going. Next week is my last prep week and I go to base.  #swimbikerun #feelingstrong #viejastrong #nevertoold #summerofstrain #puertoricostrong #myprocoach #51yearsyoung
