I’ve lost weight.
That doesn’t make me better or worse than I was before. It just is.
It makes sense because I have been eating smaller breakfasts over the past couple of months, so it was bound to make a difference physically eventually.
But what is different this time, is that I am not going to let this affect my day or mood too much. It doesn’t make me a better person, just like when I gain weight it doesn’t make me a worse person. It’s just my body changing in response to the things I regularly do to it.
But my body does not define me. It doesn’t get to tell me who I am or what I am worth. But I do love it!
I like eating mostly well and exercising because it feels good and it gives me more control of my body and mind. I don’t just want to do these things for the approval of others or so I fit some societal standard. That is a recipe for emotional disaster!
I hope we can all work towards developing a better relationship with our bodies so we can enjoy our lives more - not so we fit in or become ‘good enough’. We are loved and we are good enough no matter what. ...my heart asked that I share that with you. Xo

A common problem for clients who are starting to deadlift is lifting with a rounded back.
This position places the spine in a flexed position which can be dangerous under load.
In order to fix this there are a few simple points you can implement.
1. The first is making sure when you grip the bar that you are pulling your shoulders and scapula back and down. This also helps to activate your lats and triceps before you pull the bar off the floor.
2. Before lifting, make sure your shins are up against the bar. You want to be pulling the bar as close to your legs as possible. If you have to reach forward to pull the bar off the floor your upper back will round.
3. The bar path should follow a straight line as you lift the bar up and return to the floor.
4. Reset at the bottom of each rep ie pull shoulders back and down at the bottom of each rep.
5. Keep your core, lats and glutes tight the entire set.
This isn’t an exhaustive list but it’s a good starting point.
