Describe your favorite #healthyrecipes with emojis 🤗 Mind would be 🍳🥑🍞🍅: YEP, AN AVO TOAST✌🏼. . Yesterday you asked me what I struggled the most with at the beginning of my journey and thinking about it, it was my diet! I believed in so many myths, while in reality clean eating is pretty simple. 👉🏼 Here are 3 tips I would give myself looking back. 1️⃣. Don’t over complicate your meals. During the week, we all have super busy schedules and it’s much easier to grab meals on the go than cooking your own. But, if you are trying to clean up your diet, prepping your food should be a must! So my suggestion is to keep your meal ingredients to a minimum. Follow the eat well plate rule and be sure to include a source of lean protein, whole grains and healthy fat at each meal. 2️⃣. Listen to your body. Eat when you're hungry and stop when you're full. 3️⃣. Cook clean: try to maintain the integrity of what you are cooking by avoiding high-fat cooking methods such as deep-frying! Opt for baking, steaming, grilling to preserve the nutritional value of your food. #cleaneating #eatclean #healthyfood
#trainwithdesifit → let’s hit those glutes and inner thighs on this Monday 🤩🔥 for an amazing start of your week, shall we? . ▫️cable pull through : your feet should have a wider stance than your shoulders and you should focus on pushing the knees out. Your spine should be neutral and the movement should occur at the hips. Squeeze your glutes at the end! Do 3-4 sets of 8-12 reps. ▫️sumo deadlift at the smith machine: make sure you don’t round your back, and despite what they say that to target the glutes you need to lift heavy, doing too much weight with lack of form can cause back injury. So take it easy, start with lower weights and once you have mastered the technique, add up that volume! Do 3-4 sets of 8-10 reps. ▫️smith machine curtsy lunges: i love this move because I can seriously feel my entire leg working! Quads, glutes, hammies and yep the adductors just go on fire. Do 3-4 sets of 10-12 reps per side. . ⭐️my amazing outfit is by @terez #gifted #booty #glutes #workout
#selfcaresunday for me is cooking up delicious meals with my amazing ❤️ Mom. We share a very special bond, growing up my dad was often in the US for work for long period of times, so my momma & I were always by each other’s sides. ALWAYS. It was the 2 ✌🏼 of us against the world ♥️ and she has been my rock since day 1. Last week we made the blueberry & banana loaf from @leahitsines ‘ @bareguide and believe me, IT WAS INCREDIBLE!!!! We ate it all in one afternoon... and we may or MAY HAVE NOT shared it with rest of the family 🤫 it was just too good. Swipe to see us in action while we have the best time baking it. Recipe in my stories♥️✌🏼. #motheranddaughter #mom #bareguide
#trainwithdesifit ✘ @ivan.fitfactor . Wanna see more of these exercises? Double tap ♥️ and save for later. Mobility drills have become an important part of my routine and I can surely feel the difference during my weightlifting sessions. I feel my body is moving in a more efficient way and it feels GOOD! Stability balls are great tools for mobility exercises and whether you suffer from stiff shoulders or just want to increase the mobility of your joints, give this exercise a try! You will need ▫️a stability ball and ◽️a PVC pipe! Lie on the ball pressing your chest towards it while keeping your spine neutral. Hold the pvc pipe with one hand and press towards the floor. Start with 10% pressure, and bring up the intensity to 100%. Once you reach 100% of your strenght, gently release and move the hand up. Repeat 6 times. #mobility #mobilitytraining #shouldermobility

No detox. No skinny teas. No “magical” fat burning pills. Just 2 years of hard work and dedication. There was nothing “wrong” with my body on the left picture, but... One day, I decided I didn’t want to be SKINNY, I wanted to become STRONG. One day, I realized that what I had to GAIN was more than what I had to lose. One day, I stopped working out because I didn’t like my body, and started doing it because I loved it. One day, I decided to ditch diets and embraced a lifestyle. One day, I simply decided to LOVE MYSELF DEEPLY and become MY BEST SELF! . #transformation #transformationtuesday
I wish more women realized that helping another woman win, cheering her on, praying for her or sharing a resource with her does NOT take away from the blessings coming to them. In fact, the more you give, the more you receive. Empowering women does not come from being selfishness, but rather from selflessness. ~ @selenekinder . 🇮🇹 le Donne, quelle forti, NON si fanno la guerra ma si supportano e rispettano ogni giorno. L’aiutare qualcun altro a raggiungere i propri sogni e obiettivi e fare il tifo per loro, non ti toglierà assolutamente nulla. Ricorda che il vero #womenempowerment proviene dall’altruismo . Circondati delle persone giuste! E non aver mai paura di allontanare chi invece non ti fa stare bene. . 👉🏼 Remember that our #strongisbeautiful2019 giveaway 🎁 is on till 3/15 @stefaniasugarfree ♥️.
Like mother. Like daughter. Words can’t describe the special bond I share with my mom 💙 and my biggest aspiration is to become an amazing role model to my kids one day, just as she is to me. We had an awesome 😎 🍑 booty day yesterday 😌 and I got to boss her around 😛 which is the most fun part. Bring your parents to the gym with you! Not only will you spend quality time together, you’ll bring them in your world and it’s awesome for them to stay active! SPORTS = HEALTH, never forget that! . . . . . #strongisbeautiful #strongisthenewpretty #motivationalquotes #motivation #fitness #fitspo #fitspiration #muscle #gainz #hustle #selfcare #pwrprogress #pwrprogram #bbgprogress #bbg #selflove #loveyourself #fitgirl #youdoyou #girlgains #fitgirlsofinstagram #gymshark #gymmotivation #motherdaughter #fitmom

#trainwithdesifit ✘ @ivan.fitfactor 🤙🏼turn the SOUND ON 🔊to hear Ivan explain this CAR. The knee is a hinge joint that can be flexed and extended. Allowing proper mechanisms of these functions is crucial to avoid injuries. Knee pain is among the most common complaint of active people and often it’s caused by improper training. If you are experiencing pain, the first thing you should do is consult an orthopedic to clear out any possible trauma/injury of the tendons and ligaments. Then there are 3 things that can help: 1️⃣. Strengthen your quads. 2️⃣. Work on your hip mobility. 3️⃣. Work on your knee mobility to increase its ROM. . It is extremely important that when you workout, you work within range of motions that don’t exacerbate the pain. My rule is IF IT HURTS, DON’T DO IT. Remember that immobile joints can lead to issues in the long run and you will regret not working on your mobility now that you are YOUNG... and wild and free🤙🏼🙃. . . . #strongisbeautiful #strongisthenewpretty #motivationalquotes #motivation #fitness #fitspo #fitspiration #muscle #gainz #hustle #selfcare #pwrprogress #pwrprogram #bbgprogress #bbg #selflove #loveyourself #fitgirl #youdoyou #girlgains #fitgirlsofinstagram #gymshark #gymmotivation #mobility #hipmobility #kneemobility #kneepain
Happy Tuesday 🧡 first off let me start by letting you know that @womensbest is giving 25% off with the code WB25 + free goodie and shipping *👏🏼🙌🏻*. Now.. let’s talk #foodmyths , y’all. Three food myths – 🤙🏼BUSTED. 1️⃣. Juice cleanses are a great way to lose weight: nah. When you put your body through a juice cleanse you are missing on the balance of nutrients that your body actually needs. Plus cleanses are typically extremely low in calories 👎🏼 and going below your BMR is potentially harmful. That is why these “diets” are also limited to a couple of days or weeks. It’s not sustainable. And let’s not forget that you will not really lose body fat which should be your ultimate goal. 2️⃣. Organic food is healthier than regular food: there is a common perception that organic foods are better for you, but did you know that a 2012 study from @stanford Medicine found out that there is no evidence that organic foods are more nutritious or carry fewer health risks than non-organic ones? 3️⃣.Nut 🥜 butters are always healthy foods: in an ideal world, yes but have you ever actually read the ingredients in most of the commercial butters? Well, if you haven’t, it’s a very long list but here’s what the ingredients of a healthy jar should read: PEANUTS/ALMONDS/CASHEW/HAZELNUT. Yes, just nuts. THE END. What’s the funniest/most interesting food myth you’ve heard of? 🤯

Home is where your heart is ♥️. Have you ever visited #Palermo ? It’s my hometown and I love my city and miss it so much. I am seriously a creature of the sea 🌊 and miss waking up every day to this. But hey, at least I feel lucky I got to grow up in such beautiful place and I go back every single year. 👉🏼 Where are you from? What do you love/miss most about the place where you grew up? 💛 #siciliabedda #sicilia
#trainwithdesifit ✘ @ivan.fitfactor 🤙🏼turn the SOUND ON 🔊to hear Ivan explain this CAR. Hip mobility drills help ensure your body stays functional. Tight hips in fact are often the cause of low back pain and knee issues. Why? Unfortunately we tend to sit excessively and this causes the hip flexors to shorten and the glutes and hammies become weak. This causes improper alignment and throws your posture out of whack, increasing pressure on your spine and knees . Being in alignment will lead to proper posture which in turn can lower your risk of injuries. 🤙🏼 . . . . #strongisbeautiful #strongisthenewpretty #motivationalquotes #motivation #fitness #fitspo #fitspiration #muscle #gainz #hustle #selfcare #pwrprogress #pwrprogram #bbgprogress #bbg #selflove #loveyourself #fitgirl #youdoyou #girlgains #fitgirlsofinstagram #gymshark #gymmotivation #mobility #hipmobility
