So it’s been almost a week since I stepped on stage. Crazy to think how fast time flies; 12 weeks of insane dedication, nutrition, training and of course some crazy meltdowns & self doubting but in the end it’s worth it all.
The cravings are crazy. I spent just a single day not stuffing myself but testing and tasting the little things that I had missed while on prep. I never ate myself sick and I deffs didn’t go overboard. I picked the things that I missed the most like fresh, cold fruit, sushi and of course a bite of banana bread.
But of course it doesn’t work like that. You don’t just go back to regular eating and be all good. Reverse dieting is very important. My body is sensitive and my taste buds have changed a lot. I used to be into sweetening all my foods and now black coffee tastes better. BCAAs don’t taste as amazing, plain water seems to make me happier. Still learning how it works and trying to get my mind around eating more food. I know I need to put on a bit more healthy weight but let me tell ya your stomach shrinks a bit and eating more is sometimes I challenge. One second your sooo hungry the next you’re full to the top. Here’s to the off season. And growth. GROW MUSCLES GROW💪🏼 .
- The biggest thing that helped my performance/strength in the gym was actually consuming a pre-workout meal before training 🍗 🥗
When I first started lifting, I’d workout on an empty stomach. I thought this was more “hardcore” and that it would help with fat loss 🤦♂️ I was only running my body down as I had no fuel in the tank. One of the many reason why I couldn’t build up my strength.

Maybe the little things that you consider your weakness are actually the things that people treasure most about you.
Maybe you hate that you care too much...
Or you wear your heart on your sleeve.. But seriously, some people think that’s the best damn thing about you.
We all have different little things that make up who we are, we don’t need to change those things, but we can choose who we share them with. 🌱

I filmed this, after my legit 8/9 set. Haha I felt so weak 🤗I started off at 45 and had to lower it down to 30 but I was busy on a Team call during my workout and couldn’t film until after. I made sure to get it done for you guys ! ⠀🤓
9 sets of 10-12 reps⠀
45lbs 10-12 reps - 5 times ⠀
30lbs 10-12 reps - 4 times. ⠀
Never really used the fly my machine because of my shoulders before. Let me tell you they were burning!⠀🔥🔥
I am in Calgary this weekend, which brings up the thought I was also in Calgary last year on this weekend.
May 25th 2018 I left Kelowna to drive out to Newfoundland. My intention was to move back east. In early October, I chose to drive home. I got to spend a week in almost every Canadian city, make some lovely friends, and turn my life upside down. Yay.
In BC, I get to be with my family, and pretty soon my new niece. I got to meet Aaron and fall in love. I get to spend the summer with my best friends and pay the Kelowna sunshine tax ☀️🌞😎 Wonderful.
I learned what it means to be a Christian. I learned what it means to love yourself.
Obviously still learning and will always be learning, always reminding myself to come back to God, give back your life.
Only you can make a change in your life. I am trying to remember that 💕💕 What a unpredictable, beautiful, painful and infinitely valuable year it has been. Thank you so, so much. I feel like this is my personal new year's eve 😭💖😭💖 #godisgood#canada#sunshinetax#kelowna#love
Just another lovely lash set! Love how classy these lashes look. A healthy length and weight for these lashes. When lash extensions don’t max out natural lash to lash extension ratio every fill, it allows the natural lashes to stay healthy. So that you can keep your lashes on longer without taking breaks. BEWARE!!Heavy volume lashes like the mega volume you see on some people are often done incorrectly and are much to heavy for your natural lashes to sustain long periods of time. Regular volume lashes.. if done correctly!!! And extension to lash ratio is correct , can be left on for a long period of time as well.
Lash tip!! If they hurt, feel extremely heavy like you can’t open your eyes or you see glue clumps then they are not done correctly! And can leave long term damage to your natural lashes! Stay educated! Because you always here women say “lash extensions wrecked my lashes “ this is not true! Bad lash techs wreck lashes!! #lashtips , #beautyadvice , #beautytips , #lashextensions , #lashesdoneright , #kelowna , #kelownalashes , #lashtips , #lashing , #lashsafety , #kelownanow

(May 25, 2019): The route home is not pre-determined. Though I have an idea of what I'd like to do, I'm basically just riding until I feel like finding somewhere to stay. Today I started the ride home, and was faced with rain. It was fairly steady- never a heavy downpour but not a small amount to ride in either. I even got semi-lost once due to not having my phone in the mount and losing GPS signal so it wasn't giving instructions through my SENA. I made it two hours in the rain before stopping in Osoyoos. I had traveled down here a few days ago, and liked the little town. The pictures I took in Osoyoos a few days ago are actually across the street from my hotel! The rain stopped as soon as I checked in. I briefly started to have a migraine, but the symptoms cleared up fast. So I decided to go check out an interesting spot I noticed on my map called Haynes Point Provincial Park. It's a little peninsula into the lake and I discovered it's an RV park where people can camp overnight. I pulled over on the stretch out to the camp ground to take pictures. It was a wide road with water close to both sides, an interesting little spot to check out. Plus when I was heading out @bikerb_lalisa was also heading out and found me. We know each other through IG, but have never met, and we happened to be in the same hotel 😆 Was cool getting to hang out with her & a friend. Tomorrow I head out for a 7 hour ride to my relatives in Oregon. ✌️ So yes, I ended up not leaving Canada when planned again, but can you blame me? I'm loving the adventures I'm having! #AllAboutTheRide 🖤💖🖤 ------------------------------------------------------------------------ #TonitMotorcycles#Yamaha#YamahaMT07#YamahaFZ07#MT07#FZ07#nakedbikes#nakedbike#sportsbike#sportsbikes#sportsbikelife#biketour#bikelife#motorcycle#motorcycles#moto#motopeanut#sportbikegirls#girlswhoride#girlrider#Alpinestars#HeldBikerFashion#Shoei#Kelowna#Canada
Today I was reminded that when you drive through the mountains and bring a water bottle with a pop up straw, that the pressure in the bottle builds as you climb and descend hills...and when you open said bottle for a drink, the pressure build-up will cause the water to shoot out of the straw and spill all over you almost causing an accident and leaving awkward wet marks on your pants. 😑
Cannot remember the last time we were all together! Had the best time drinking wine, eating snacks and watching netflix! 🤣🤣🤣 Thank you girls for the surprises! 😭 You girls are the best, I love you all!!! 😚 #kelowna#bffs#drinkwine#30thbirthdaytrip

Energy is everything. We are energy. Energy is all around us.
We all have a energy field that surrounds us. If we are feeling positive and happy our energy field will have a high vibration. When our energy levels are low, we are feeling negative and in a bad mood, our energy field will have a low vibration.
When two different energies are coming together, such as two different people together. One with a low vibration negative energy, and one with a high vibration positive energy. The energy levels will start to change. Either one will rise or one will fall.
Unfortunately, the higher energy vibrations are usually brought down. Leaving you to feel low and drained.
A few things to take into consideration when you are feeling low and starting to deplete is energy vampires. These are people who we may surround ourselves with who can bring our energy levels down and leave us feeling depleted and drained.
We don’t have to avoid these people but we can try and spend shorter amounts of time with them, and we can also try and bring there energy levels up as well.
It is important when trying to maintain your energy or when you feel your light dimming is self care. Take the time to take care of yourself first. Self Care is absolutely key making sure that you take time to do the things that help make you happy! Do the things that help bring up your energy, listen to happy music, hang out with friends who make you smile! Do things that make you smile!
Remember it’s all about you, and your energy! Don’t let anyone dim your light! If you feel your light dimming make sure that you do something for you, even a small thing! Make sure that you are doing your self care and reach out to those who can help lift your spirits up!
Self care can include: baths, meditation, eating properly, reading, walking, working out, hiking, sitting by the lake in silence, dry brushing, anything that you enjoy doing, and that you are doing for yourself and not anyone else!! #selfcare#spiritual#awareness#reignitewithrobyn#spirit#energy#energydrain#highenergy#vibrations#positive#negative#kelowna#reignite
