Throwback Thursday to the very first selfie I posted on IG, June 2, 2013. I was just getting started in this fitness journey. So much has changed since then!! I was so self conscious and just plain weirded out posting that picture!! I’m literally laughing out loud while writing this because if you had asked me back then if I would be posting pictures of myself nude or wearing nearly nothing, I would have gasped in horror! 🤣🤣🤣🤣 It’s a wonderful thing to be comfortable in your own skin....flaws and all. And just an FYI, I don’t post those kind of pics for likes or followers. I post them for me....because I have fought hard to get here. Those pics represent a massive journey of a whole bunch of mind battles. There’s far more there than meets the eye...Do I need to share them with you? No. I do because it’s my page and this is my diary of sorts. And I also want women to be empowered and not ashamed of their bodies. My motto is “This is me and I am not afraid to be seen!” I’ve stayed hidden for far too long. Not anymore.... #throwbackthursday #bodybuilding #powerlifter #strongisbeautiful #strongwomen #gymrat #ironaddict #grit #powerbuilder #strength #strengthtraining #strongissexy #fitfam #fitnessjourney #womenwholift #fitnessaddict #powerliftingwomen #liftheavy #goalgetter #youdoyou #wearelimitless #campgaines #limitlessathletics #thisis49 #fitover40

New low weight this morning!!! I haven’t weighed myself in three weeks, and I certainly was not expecting to see this, especially with my eating frenzy last week! I had to hop on and off the scale a few time just to make sure there wasn’t a mistake! 🤣🤣🤣 #newlowweight #lowestweightyet #almostthere #bodybuilding #powerlifter #strongisbeautiful #strongwomen #gymrat #ironaddict #grit #powerbuilder #strength #strengthtraining #strongissexy #fitfam #fitnessjourney #womenwholift #fitnessaddict #powerliftingwomen #liftheavy #goalgetter #youdoyou #wearelimitless #campgaines #limitlessathletics #thisis49 #fitover40

Polishing off the last of my macros in da tub! I’ve been back on track this week with sticking to my diet, and not letting emotions rule the roost. It feels much better than eating to dull frustration, anger, and anxiety. #selfcare #tubtime #halotop #tlc #backontrack #bubblebath

Today’s glutes!! Everything was 4x12-15, except cable clams. Those were 4x25. I am using the full stack of weight on glute push downs now. Time to start increasing the reps. 😃 #gluteworkout #bodybuilding #powerlifter #strongisbeautiful #strongwomen #gymrat #ironaddict #grit #powerbuilder #strength #strengthtraining #strongissexy #fitfam #fitnessjourney #womenwholift #fitnessaddict #powerliftingwomen #liftheavy #goalgetter #youdoyou #wearelimitless #campgaines #limitlessathletics #thisis49 #fitover40

Stop, drop, and selfie tag from my friend @inked__beardedbeast . I’m practicing dance choreography before dance class tonight. It’s our last class to drill our routine before our showcase on Saturday. Ignore the stain on my top. I’m notorious for dropping food on myself. Lol! 😂🤷‍♀️🤪 Tagged a few of you! #sds #stopdropandselfie

Back and shoulders from earlier this morning. I bumped up the weight in lat pull downs to 135 #. Whoop! One thing I want to work on more is military presses. They are not my strong suit! I got 7 pull-ups today, but they aren’t the full range of motion. I just wanted to see how many I could get. #back #shoulders #bodybuilding #powerlifter #strongisbeautiful #strongwomen #gymrat #ironaddict #grit #powerbuilder #strength #strengthtraining #strongissexy #fitfam #fitnessjourney #womenwholift #fitnessaddict #powerliftingwomen #liftheavy #goalgetter #youdoyou #wearelimitless #campgaines #limitlessathletics #thisis49 #fitover40

Transformation Tuesday of the stems!! 17 months between the two pics. Can’t wait to see what another year of lifting all the heavy things will bring. 😃💪🏼👏🏻 #transformationtuesday #legs #stems #bodybuilding #powerlifter #strongisbeautiful #strongwomen #gymrat #ironaddict #grit #powerbuilder #strength #strengthtraining #strongissexy #fitfam #fitnessjourney #womenwholift #fitnessaddict #powerliftingwomen #liftheavy #goalgetter #youdoyou #wearelimitless #campgaines #limitlessathletics #thisis49 #fitover40

Bench: 110 #, 3x10. I’ve dropped the weight back down to start building it back up again. I don’t know what it is with this lift. If I don’t stay after it, I lose whatever gains I have made in no time flat. My legs usually can pick up right where I left off. So weird but it makes me mad! 😂😤 #bench #benchpress #bodybuilding #powerlifter #strongisbeautiful #strongwomen #gymrat #ironaddict #grit #powerbuilder #strength #strengthtraining #strongissexy #fitfam #fitnessjourney #womenwholift #fitnessaddict #powerliftingwomen #liftheavy #goalgetter #youdoyou #wearelimitless #campgaines #limitlessathletics #thisis49 #fitover40

TRUTH!!! I will always follow my intuition. I’ve ignored it too many times and have paid the price. You KNOW when something feels off. There is a voice that doesn’t use words. It’s your soul speaking to you.

Yay!! It’s back!!! My favorite of Halo Top!! Back on track with my diet today too. My workout may not have been too focused today, but at least my macros were on point. 😊 #pumpkinhalotop #flexibledieting #macros #bodybuilding #powerlifter #strongisbeautiful #strongwomen #gymrat #ironaddict #grit #powerbuilder #strength #strengthtraining #strongissexy #fitfam #fitnessjourney #womenwholift #fitnessaddict #powerliftingwomen #liftheavy #goalgetter #youdoyou #wearelimitless #campgaines #limitlessathletics #thisis49 #fitover40

The rest of today’s workout. I normally do more than this, but I wasn’t feeling it today. My mind has been preoccupied with other things lately. I need to get my focus back. #bodybuilding #powerlifter #strongisbeautiful #strongwomen #gymrat #ironaddict #grit #powerbuilder #strength #strengthtraining #strongissexy #fitfam #fitnessjourney #womenwholift #fitnessaddict #powerliftingwomen #liftheavy #goalgetter #youdoyou #wearelimitless #campgaines #limitlessathletics #thisis49 #fitover40

I was tagged by @fitmomma07 for an sds a couple of days ago, and I spaced it! Sorry gf!! I am home from the gym, had some lunch, and currently getting some homework done while trying to keep warm. Tagged a few to play along. #sds #stopdropandselfie #fitfam

Squats: 195 #, 3x6. I couldn’t get to the gym where I normally do squats due to the snow. This was just weird for me today, but I got it done. Not too shabby for not having done squats in two weeks. #squats #bodybuilding #powerlifter #strongisbeautiful #strongwomen #gymrat #ironaddict #grit #powerbuilder #strength #strengthtraining #strongissexy #fitfam #fitnessjourney #womenwholift #fitnessaddict #powerliftingwomen #liftheavy #goalgetter #youdoyou #wearelimitless #campgaines #limitlessathletics #thisis49 #fitover40
