No, these weren't PRs. They weren't the prettiest. Or the heaviest. But they felt good. Some of the technique I've been working on is becoming easier. And I was happy. And I had fun. And I was realizing the other day that I won't be in this exact same training block again. I could complain that I want to max out. I want to PR. I want to be competing. OR, I could enjoy what I'm doing. The heavy will come again, but this stuff I'm doing right now, I'll only get out of it what I put into it. Happy Monday Everyone!

Really happy with how these powers were moving! Been working with @dr.george2.0 to improve proper shoulder mobility (I'm hyper-mobile, but in all the wrong places 😬), and actually activate my lats during lifts. Definitely noticing a difference in that overhead! @olsenchad3 I'm craving something heavy! 😂😂😂 @sedulousperformance#snatch#power#lovetheprocess#mentaltoughnes#strongAF#oly#lifting#weightlifting#girlswholift#thankscoach#sedbarbell#SedulousAF

Happiest of Mother's Days to my lovely Momma! You'll always be my adventure buddy, my fashion twin (seriously, we never actually coordinate, it just happens), my biggest supporter. A lot of who I am is because of you, and I am so thankful for you, and happy I get to spend time you. Love you to the moon and back! #mothersday#thankyoumom#twinning

R e s t Just yesterday was talking with @paige_hollowayy and @olsenchad3 on how the hardest part of training is to rest. We work ourselves hard, give it our all, and empty our tanks every day because as athletes we know what we're capable of. Forgetting that for just as hard as we push our bodies we have to rest them even more, otherwise they'll force us to slow down in ways we don't like. Not an hour later and comes a bit of a scare with my bad shoulder collapsing in on me, similar to the original injury. And while there's really no pain, it feels off enough that I decided to play it safe and not lift today, even though I'd been looking forward to my one day of actual lifts 🙄. Long story short, take care of yourself, kids! @dr.george2.0 I'll be seeing you soon 😅 @sedulousperformance#rest#slowdown#bekindtoyourbody#lovetheprocess#mentaltoughnes#recovery#athlete#SedulousAF

Well. That didn't go as planned. 😂 There's a first time for everything, and that includes bombing out. We had just one goal: qualify for Nationals; so after barely missing my first snatch I made the call to go up in weight anyways. Miss. Miss. No one ever wants to know what that feels like, but it teaches you something that nothing else can. How to exit graciously. How to have your emotional moment then move on. How to push it aside, pick yourself back up, and refocus. How to still find humor in your situation. And how to walk back across that platform up to the barbell and finish what you started. I wanted those numbers. I've fought so hard to get there. And at PR or near PR numbers, I knew it wouldn't be easy. But God knows the bigger picture, so I've got a whole year now to try again, and I promise you haven't seen the last of me. 😁 Thanks to @olsenchad3 for, once again, handling a less-than-stellar performance, and to @thaliamendozaa for the help. Thanks @verobeachweightlifting for letting me jump in. Thanks to all my @sedulousperformance teammates, and all my family and friends who wished me the best. And thanks to my mom @tasflorida for being there with me. I love you all! 🤗 #GOHEAVY#lovetheprocess#mentaltoughnes#theendiswherewebegin#trust#integrity#athlete#bombed#notover#platform#competition#snatch#cleanandjerk#oly#lifting#weightlifting#unitedlifters#competeeveryday#girlswholift#thankscoach#SEDBarbell#SedulousAF

Gambled on a close miss, and ended up with a new 2RM #PR! Not only that, but some of the most solid jerks I've felt (we'll clean up that recovery lol). Working on a new "get fat" brace 😂, and it's paying off. You can see how surprised I was to hit the second attempt! @sedulousperformance@peakcoachingforsuccess@activeliferx@dr.george2.0@pgahealthcenter#GOHEAVY#lovetheprocess#mentaltoughnes#jerk#maxout#strongAF#bulletproofshoulders#oly#lifting#weightlifting#girlswholift#SedulousAF

Really really happy to get above 90%! Coach tweaking some things with my jerk, and they felt the best they have in weeks. A solid 78, and a highly suspect 80, lol. Bonus 3rm power clean, cuz I LOVE me some heavy power cleans. 😍 Always a work in progress. #GOHEAVY#lovetheprocess#mentaltoughnes#strongAF#oly#lifting#weightlifting#SedulousAF#thankscoach#SEDBarbell#athlete#platform#competition

While it might still be a couple kilos short of a PR, this is the most I've been able to squat in quite some time. Not only that, but also completely pain-free!

I hate falling down. But there's no feeling quite like getting back up and nailing the next one. And then hitting 90%. Also BTK cleans are my favorite block work because they're the easiest blocks to put away. 😅 Always room for improvement, but I'll be happy with tonight. @sedulousperformance@olsenchad3@peakcoachingforsuccess@activeliferx#GOHEAVY#lovetheprocess#mentaltoughnes#falldown#getbackup#dontquit#nottoday#strongAF#oly#lifting#clean#weightlifting#girlswholift#thankscoach#takeprideinhowfaryouhavecome
