taryngilliganhealth:

Sorry my vlog did not want to upload today. Instead I made a montage of my progress photos over the past year. I hope you guys enjoy the changes in my body and my documenting my experience. 

Thank you all for your love and support. With out this blog, and with out you guys, I know I wouldn’t be walking on stage in the best shape of my life, recovered. I can’t thank you all enough.

Damn, serious arm gains! Well done

I’ve eaten 1800ish calories today and I’m so hungry I can’t sleep! Ugh!
But then again, I worked legs and glutes today.. That means SKYR! Yay!

I’ve decided that it’s okay for me this first week to not be on a diet plan but follow it loosely and adapt to it.
I need to remake it. I made it to complicated.

Going to sound a bit like a bitch right now.
The other girl from my class who is considering competing, she’s the kind of person who spends a lot of money and I know she’ll do the same on this.
I was concerned that this would give her a huge advance compared to me and I would lose before I start. That shouldn’t even bother me from the beginning but it does.
BUT she have hired a guy from our class to pre-prep her and she thought that 150g protein meant 150g meat even through she was given the calories too. She fears that she’ll get to bulky and muscular and her coach have set her calorie intake real low because apparently “she doesn’t do much”.
I like that guy but think the diet he gave her is stupid.

I think that my giant knowledge pool will help me out a lot and then it doesn’t matter if I can’t spend several hundreds on a bikini and I have to do my makeup myself.

I’m not attempting this to get seen and know, she’ll use it to get clients later on but if her body is banging by the end, it’s her coach that holds the secret unless she really takes everything in. I’m attempting this because I’ve dreamed of it for a long time and it would be crazy if I could go through with it.

So her lack of knowledge make me confident and I know that’s rude, but it’s true. I may not have the cash but I got the brain

This is so yummy! 
It’s skyr, cocoa powder, vanilla protein, pure stevia chocolate drops and frozen strawberries. 

This morning I decided I wanted carbs, lots of carbs! Why? Because I always feel low on energy and positive vibes when I’m on the first days of my period. 
So I’ll just try to cut carbs later on or just have a high carb day because I needed it. Lots of fruity carbs!

I made low carb high fat “bread” today but I forgot to add the eggs so it’s protein count wasn’t like I wanted it.
I didn’t measure but I’ve calculated the approx amounts
Every slice would have 117cal, 2.5 NET carb, 5ish protein and 10ish fat.

I made it with almonds, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds I grounded up in the blend, added hot water, natron, cocoa powder, pure vanilla powder, cinnamon and stevia.

I think I’ll make a coconut chocolate sauce/spread to it tomorrow. Or toast it, crumble it and use it as cereal. Or both.

I’m playing around with diets to find one I feel good about. And right now my body craved fats, lots of healthy fats.

I’ll try to post a picture tomorrow

When I look back on my picture on this blog I can see that I’ve gained weight.
What that shows is only that there is more of me. Not that I’m getting fat.
I actually feel leaner than I’ve done in a long time.
The feeling of being leaner might not have anything to do with my body.

I’ve not only gained mass, I’ve gained a lot of things you can’t see.
Like I’ve gained acceptance of my body. I’ve gained strength and not just physically. I’ve gained confidence that my body can perform well and that I know how to do things with right form because I’ve worked on technique instead of vanity.

All I’ve gained, I’ve gain for good. I can always lose weight, without losing this period of acceptance and I’ll fight to keep like my body even through I would like to get lean and I would love to improve my strength.

Right now my goal is to get strong enough to do pull ups by February. Not that I’ll use it in my teaching but because I want to be in good shape and feel confident about my abilities when I’m instructing others.

Just a bit of pictures

Back for a while

Hi guys. I’ve been away and used my Instagram and other blog instead.
Lots have happened.
Moved away from home, got a kitten, started my specialization.

In this semester I’ll have coaching, physical activity, physiology and anatomy and social science.

I’ve found an internship working as an instructor and coach for my own class which will be a kind of pre-beginners, so VERY basic and very motivational.
I’m so excited. I tried instructing some classmates yesterday as part of a small assignment and got a lot of positive feedback so that was awesome.

I’m currently having problems with my injuries and using kinesio tape which I feel like help.

I think I have to make my Wednesday into rest day because I go hard and Mondays and I have PA and Tuesday and I go hard there too because I aim for be as good as the boys. I can follow up with them pretty well except during dips and pull ups. Besides from that, I’m one of the fastest when we do functional training but I’m a slow runner due to injuries. So I don’t have to run, I bike instead for our cooper tests.

My ultimate aim is to be as fast as Joakim during functional conditioning.
That guy is amazing.
He’s the kind of person you look for when you enter the classroom just to see if there is a seat free near him. Not because he’s your crush but because he’s knowledgable, fun and helpful.
He also work at my gym and I really enjoy our conversations.
