catnee Mail day is the best. New sports bra because I needed it obviously and it's awesome, hip circle from @mbslingshot to streamline some of my warm ups and a higher resistance band for my hand. These are so awesome. I was having a hard time with wrist pain/discomfort in my low bar squats and I was able to fix it by rolling out my forearms with a lacrosse ball and working with a band. Something to try if you're having a similar problem ️ Oh and I hit a squat rep PR today with 7@155. I'm working on learning to really sit back in my squat and not let me knees come forward. Pretty good considering this week I'm feeling pretty under the weather. 3d

catnee I'm pretty pumped. This is officially the first time that curling my hair hasn't turned into a big frizzy mess. My new robot curling iron is the best invention for people like me who have no patience and no hair skills. 6d

catnee Spent some time checking out Savage Gym with my lifting friends today. It's so rad to have the opportunity to check out new gyms and hear feedback from other coaches. Thanks for having us @jeronkerridge! The powerlifting community has been so rad and welcoming to me as a newly competitive athlete and I'm very thankful for it. Photo via @heartshapedsky because she thinks of things like photos while I'm just asking ridiculous questions about peoples funny deadlift routines. 1w

catnee Weird dudes. 1w
  •   veganproteins @catnee are they prescription? I'm not deathly allergic, obviously, just annoyingly so. Ie: constant sneezing, itchy eyes/face, runny nose. I was thinking about talking to my doctor. I also heard about a shampoo for cats that helps keep some of the allergen dander at bay? But I haven't looked into it yet. 1w
  •   catnee Yeah they are prescription. Taking a Claritin or something helps too. I tried washing them with shampoo and it works okay but sherlock hates it. I really think the thing that helps the most is the mopping because the dander is sticky so water gets it off better than just sweeping. If it's really bad, I'm sure your dr could prescribe a spray. If the cats are new you might get somewhat used to them too and stop sneezing. So sorry. Pet allergies are the worst. @veganproteins 1w
  •   veganproteins @catnee we have all carpets, but I'll try vacuuming more frequently and see if that helps. I still snuggle the shit out of them, so I pretty much have it coming 1w
  •   catnee I bet the vacuuming will help. I talked to my dr about it and he pretty much just told me to keep my house clean and try and wash the cats if I can because it's ridiculous to not pet your own cat. @veganproteins 1w

catnee I have some exciting news! So stoked to compete on #plantbuilt this year with other compassionate people. ・・・
Straight out of Portland, just another powerlifter named Courtney! And man, is she bringing some good lifts to the platform this June. Aside from the other handful of PDX vegans, Courtney will also be another addition to the powerlifting posse.
She's proud to be vegan and has some damn-good reasons for being so. Check 'em out on her profile: http://www.plantbuilt.com/profiles/powerliftng/courtney-eastman/

catnee If you haven't tried one of these yet, you're going to want to go do that. @ffgrocery sells them and you can and should buy a whole box like I did. A vegan cookie dough protein bar exists. 2w

catnee @plantbuiltashlee tagged me to list five things that people might not know about me that aren't related to lifting 1. I "played" clarinet in high school marching band. By play I mean I completely pretended to know how because marching band is/was cool. 2. I'm naturally blonde and when I was a little kid my mom tried to take me to modeling auditions because I looked just like Mary Kate and Ashley. Apparently I threw tantrums and was a diva so no one wold work with me. 3. I read faster than anyone I've ever met. I think I self taught myself how to speed read. I'll slow down if I'm reading theory or something for school but I've finished novels in a hour or two. 4. My best friend @hallithbates and I used to write, direct and act in our own feature length films when we were in middle school. Once I played a cancer patient who was haunted by nightmares of a murderous lemur. I kinda wish I would have pursued the film thing... 5. I love fantasy anything. The more novels, films, short stories etc in the universe the happier I am. I try to like scifi as much as fantasy but that's never going to happen. I'm going to tag @buxombaphomet @fistifluffs @igotbyintime and @tiffanyrosales87 @hallithbates 2w

catnee Hit deadlifts 5x2 at 190 (80%) today followed up with pause deadlifts at 205. I've been spending a lot of time trying to dial these in. There's still some stuff I need to work on like keeping my shoulders back and getting underneath the bar a little more but they are looking a lot much better. I feel stupid strong off the ground so hopefully I'm making some strength gains with all the work I'm putting in. Finished up the day with some sets up squats from 5@55% to 5@75%. My legs felt nice and fatigued. 3w

catnee My #wcw this week is @lipstickandmustardgreens. She's such a wonderful person and has worked super hard to develop amazing makeup skills. She hasn't even gone to makeup school yet! @lipstickandmustardgreens with @repost-app.

Day 14 of #mobjanchallenge is Mythology. I chose Asteria, Titan goddess of stars, constellations, and necromancy. To escape Zeus's advances, she turned into a quail and dove into the sea. To escape Poseidon's advances, she became the island of Delos. @misfitsofbeauty #misfitsofbeauty #mythology #mehronmakeup 3w

catnee I had to mentally talk myself out of getting a burrito for ten minutes before I came home from the gym and made this. I started a new mass building program Monday. Yesterday after about 100 squats I was totally okay but today after 50ish reps of bench and dumbbell bench I just want to die. Lol at me saying it looked easy when I first received it. 😑 this is penne pasta with tofurkey sausage, broccoli cooked in braggs and garlic pesto spaghetti sauce. I also dumped nutritional yeast on it after the photo. Also pictured is this sweet Get Awesome towel that @mwpdx13 got me for Christmas. 3w
  •   veganpatty But but.. burritos all day every day! :P I'm assuming you know about the chipotle sofritas thing on jan 26 yeah?! 3w
  •   xkaylastewartx @catnee Exactly. Maybe one day. 3w
  •   catnee @veganpatty I do not! Please explain! 3w
  •   veganpatty no way! It's so amazing hehe! Order sofritas at Chipotle on jan 26, and if you bring your receipt back on your next visit between jan 27- feb 28, you get a free burrito (bowl, salad or taco)!!!! 3w
  •   veganpatty There's your free burrito!! 3w
  •   heroxbishop That Tofurky Sausage is the truth. 3w
