petitefi Trying something new #MindBodySoul 1w

petitefi I've made a lot of changes in my life in the past few months. Evaluating your center and exposing your heart has a tendency to do that.

I'm headed down a new road. A better road. One that I fell safe on.

It's easy to place your marker in the sand and declare your place - what's hard is stepping back and looking at it from another view. Just because you once felt one way, does not mean you must ALWAYS align with those thoughts.

If we never look back, we can never move forward and are stalled in eternity.

Take a moment to reevaluate. Are you TRULY happy in your life today? Even if it made you happy yesterday does not mean you shouldn't change for tomorrow.

  •   voxxik Is grain free gluten free? May be a silly question but one fleck of gluten and I'm done !!! 1w
  •   petitefi @voxxik in this case yes! Grain free means gluten free but that is not ALWAYS the case (if soy sauce was present for instance) 1w

petitefi Dinner in 15 Seconds Flat!

Tossing a whole bird into a crockpot is one of the simplest methods for perfectly cooked chicken meat as well as a great way to start your first homemade bone broth!

Stuff a whole chopped onion (or apple) into the cavity of the bird to help keep it moist

Cover with seasoning! Here I used lemon wedges, basil, thyme, oregano, rosemary and some salt. This is totally modifiable so experiment with flavors!

Perhaps mash up some garlic and tuck it into that slippery bastard

Put a lid on the whole thing

Turn the heat on low and cook for 6 - 8 hours or on high for 4 - 5. You'll know it's done when the meat is falling off the bone.

Voilà! Dinner for two WITH left overs for lunch in less than 10 minutes (or 15 seconds in IG land)

Scrape all that meat off and keep all the cartilage & bone in the pot with the juices for a tasty, gut healing broth - coming up next

  •   hunterfitness @ladyiodine I forget the other ingredients as well since we tried so many variations. I think that one was jalapeño, ginger, watermelon, carrot, and one or two other things 1mon

petitefi Believe it or not I actually AM on twitter (along with Facebook and Pinterest)

I know I've had the tendency of falling off the planet and keeping to myself. Mostly that comes from my own internal struggle of deciding if any of my thoughts or insights actually contribute anything positive or helpful to this mess of a world.

Most days I can't justify it to myself and so I just keep it all in.

I have, however, experienced great connections from this technology we call social media and part of me feels very drawn to sharing a message.

Basically what I'm saying is - if you're still with me, I'm still here. And if you actually are interested in anything I've been conjuring up, I'll be sharing again soon.
  •   wreckit_tina Thank you for this. I am still here. Hope all is well in your soul. namaste @petitefi 1mon

  •   dr_mannyfresh @petitefi I feel you, i feel the same. It's pretty safe to say that we are all behind you. If you disappear well just pick up were we left off. 1mon
  •   a_qub3 You know we are here!!! Have been and always will be! (On social networks I'm not a stalker ) 1mon
  •   jigmasterflexx Every lesson you learn from your journey and even announcing your mistakes but how you had managed to get back right up are ways to share positivity with the world... 1mon

petitefi Thoroughly enjoying my last days in Hawaii with some of the inspiring & genuine people I've had the pleasure of connecting with.

I've really been focusing on strengthening my relationships lately as opposed to my body and it has been such a powerfully positive experience. Bringing welcome change to my heart.

What are we, after all, without the ones we love?

petitefi 185lb bar weight + 266lb chain weight for an aprx 415lb top weight sumo Deadlift.

Not all the chain is lifted off the floor therefore it's not the true 266lbs at the top.

Working on strengthening my hips and posterior chain especially my hamstrings!

petitefi Hey you! How much ya bench?

If you're bench press is quite literally weak and/or if you need to get stronger in your overhead, try out this little accessory move for strength & hypertrophy: the JM Press

This is a tricep exercise invented by JM Blakely (a 700lb bench presser!) that is a hybrid move of a close grip bench press and a lying tricep extension. Added into your routines after a bench or upper body focused day, you'll get some much needed tricep work to help you lock out those big weights.
Lie flat on the bench just as you would in order to bench press with your feet firmly on the floor. Using either a standard barbell or an EZ curl bar, hold in a narrow grip at arms length (fully extended), elbows in, just as you would in the starting position of the bench press. Lower the bar in a controlled manner to just above the sternum. Rotate the elbows up allowing the bar to roll back towards the neck/chin. Keeping the elbows in, press the bar back up into the starting position.

Start with a lighter weight and higher reps to feel out the movement itself then go for strength and try out 2 to 3 sets of 3 to 5 reps with something heavy!

This is how I'm going to bench 200lb keep up
