#selfcaresunday 🙏🏼💫💖. . ’You’ve got to fall in love with yourself first and make yourself a priority’! . Now, I’m sure those voices in your head might be thinking that sounds mighty selfish, but I’m here to tell you it’s the exact opposite. When you're loving yourself and putting yourself first, EVERYTHING in your life benefits. . . Loving yourself means caring for yourself deeply, making your sleep, nutrition, exercise and well-being a priority. It can be anything from making your gym time nonnegotiable or canceling late night plans so you can get enough sleep. It’s about listening to your body and giving it what it needs to feel its best. . I certainly slip up from time to time, but when I hit a certain state of overwhelm, I take a breather, I get out into nature and walk, meditate, take a bath, or just lay down and breathe into my body and remind myself of the things in my life that I am grateful for🙏🏼. . Being present and self aware is the key to being able to get through those tough times. Life happens. There will always be testing times, you will have good days and bad, it’s all about how you deal with these situations and if you’re not in a good state of mind, these situations can spiral and really take a hold on your health! . . Self care and self love is crucial. Don’t wait until it’s too late, change that story that you have on repeat in your head from ‘I am not worth it’, to ‘I am worth every ounce of my love and affection and I damn well deserve the best from life’! 👊🏼💕. . https://justineswitalla.com/ . .

It is so important that you do NOT use exercise as a form of punishment! 🙅🏽♀️ . I see it all the time. People pushing their bodies to their limit! Not leaving the gym until they have burnt ‘X’ amount of calories or have absolutely smashed themselves 😳🤪. . There is a time and a place for intense workouts, but day in day out its a big NO NO‼️ . That on top of the fact that they probably aren’t not eating enough to support that type of volume or intensity day in, day out🤦🏽♀️. . LISTEN TO YOUR BODY 🙏🏼. . If it’s screaming at you for rest, give it rest. If you are hungry for a meal, eat a meal! . ✅ Figure out what type of exercise suits your body type and what you enjoy doing, and do that! . ✅ Schedule in rest days and/or de- load weeks! . . I’m a fan of cardio and weights, hence why I enjoy doing #F45 as it offers both. I also love to lift heavy and have performance based goals and enjoy I walking 🏋🏼♀️💪🏼🙌🏼. . So stop jumping from one program to the next, find one that you can be be consistent with and trust your that the results will come in time‼️❤️. . https://justineswitalla.com/ . . .
One week into tracking my food for my photo shoot and I am feeling on track 💪🏼👌🏼☺️ I have definitely felt a little more tired with more energy output and slightly lower cals but all in all I can’t complain! . . My body responds really well when I track and have a goal. I have still been having the odd red wine, but I am tracking it as even though a glass of red is only around 120 cals I need to be consistent. This is where a lot of people fall short, especially on weekends where they drink a lot and that tips them way over their daily or weekly calorie allowance. Then they eat like normal or more after a few drinks🥂🤣. . Meal 1 : greens smoothie - made with avocado, peanut butter, greens powder, kale, @180nutrition protein, ice and water - 359 cals 👌🏼. . Meal 2 - Blueberries protein pancake - made with 1 banana, 2 eggs, @180nutrition coconut protein and blueberries- 351 cals 😋. . Meal 3 - chili scrambled eggs on gluten free toast (cafe meal) approx 685 cals 👍🏼. . Meal 4 - broccolini with chicken thighs - 380 cals 😁. . Total cals: 1775 . . I will see how things progress this week, at this stage I won’t reduce my cals but might again slightly a week out from my shoot! It’s important to remember that when you are trying to drop body fat and are in a calorie deficit that you will feel more tired and a tad more hungry than normal. I usually have around 2000 calories a day when I’m just maintaining 😊 But please don’t cut calories if you are already under eating (which a lot of women do).

🍑3 RM Squat testing @ 105kgs🍑. . I was feeling pretty confident today but when you are testing and you have that much weight on your back, your mind plays tricks on you 🙄😉. . I haven't been able to follow my strength training program to the tee due to my other training and work commitments, so if I had of been following it properly I probably would have nailed all 3 squats perfectly 👌🏼. . I am just happy that I got 3 out without quitting or any assistance. The 2nd squat threw me (lifted hips first and didn’t push my knees out enough or drive my chest up) and if I was in a comp the 3rd one wouldn't have passed due to depth and it was pretty ugly.. but any hoo 🤷🏽♀️😜. . I need to also take into consideration that I have been in a calorie deficit this week for my upcoming photoshoot and I have been feeling more tired than usual. So all in all I am still very happy with this result and can kind of call it my new 3 rep PB 👊🏼🤣💪🏼. . Video one: 3 @ 105kgs 💪🏼💪🏼. . Video two: Backdown sets 3 x 3 @ 90kgs (these felt good even feeling fatigued but really focused on driving knees out and chest up!) 👊🏼😁💪🏼 . Video three: Conventional deads 3 x 8 @ 87.5kgs 😤😤😅 . HUGE session and left me with absolutely nothing left in the tank. I do love it though! Thank you for the sesh @onemorerep, you got me good today, still can’t walk properly 🙄😂 .
