Certified Personal Trainer & Nutritionist @ DeVine Physiques I spent my youth as an obese kid. I was very uncomfortable with my body image, and didn't even like to smile because it emphasized how wide my face was.

I experimented with different diets and different approaches to weight loss; but ultimately, the most progress came from a simple, evidence based, scientific approach. I am now an independent, NASM certified personal trainer, NASM certified nutritionist, and NASM corrective exercise specialist that lives the lifestyle I preach: I compete in Spartan Races, play ice hockey, powerlift, and maintain a

On Monday and Tuesday of this week, I got my first taste of winter mountaineering as 6 of us, along with 2 guides, climbed the west face of . It was an absolute blast, combining a bit of snow climbing with some solid 3rd and 4th class scrambling. I got to work on some additional skills like belaying a rope team; and just generally had the time of my life while learning a lot of lessons about camping in snow. (Note to self: more snacks and invest in double boots!)

I keep joking that one of these days I may not return from the mountains- they are definitely my happy place!

In our home, eating apples is a family event... and I find the little crunch crunch of puppies chewing apple to be one of the most adorable sounds on the planet. Scout is to my left get her nomz on, and here's the Doodle Bug doing the crunch crunch! Also of note: I learned Simon does not care for apples.

Rekt is the word I would use to describe how I felt after out adventure on Friday. I felt even more rekt yesterday. Today, I've improved enough to spell wrecked in normal English. 😝 Also means I'm good enough to workout today. Doing some hybrid endurance work and focusing more on pulling muscles rather than pushing* as that will better serve me with rock scrambling.

* For years I've put a ton of emphasis on pushing muscles and wanted massive pecs more than anything else. As part of my coming out journey, I finally realized why that was a big goal of mine. 😉

I'm the sort of girl that takes everything to the nth degree and made sure Sarah and I were overprepared for anything we may face; an important rule is to always plan as if you're going to spend the night on the mountain (even though that's not the intention)... so when we got caught in the dark on our descent, we had the tools to get us home safely, and did not have to break out the bivvy sacks. We spent 9 hours in the mountains (1.5 in complete darkness), gained more elevation than we have thus far (~4,000 vertical feet), and summited 3 mountains (with Granite Mountain being the tallest we've climbed):

Rabbit Peak (5,307' / 1618 m)
Granite Mountain (6,600' / 2012 m)
Round Top (6,316' / 1925 m)

We also learned a lot of lessons, and never want to do that again.

Photo Descriptions:

1) Photos from the three summits we hit!
2) Sarah and I touching the summit cairn of Rabbit Peak. We employed different methods.
3) Refueling at the top of Granite Mountain before the crazy descent (that we didn't think would be crazy at the time).
4) Class 1 rock scrambling on the ridge between Rabbit Peak and Granite Mountain.
5) "The climbing I do for the soul. The photos are for the 'gram."
6) Just me being outdoorsy.
7) Sarah showing off where we had come from: the summit of Granite Mountain.
8) Beautiful sunset on our way down from Round Top. (Side note: Our car is off in the distance behind a mountain, which is part of why we got caught in the dark.)
9) Just my love hanging out on a rock.
10) Looking back on Rabbit Peak.

Proper trip report and photos incoming, but let me tell you: I am the type of girl that plans for all contingencies no matter how silly it seems... and it came in really handy when descending a mountain when it's pitch black out.

Greetings from Mount McKinley (California)! We departed from the car at 10:45 AM at an altitude of 1,794 ft. ~4 hours later, after 3,135 ft. of elevation change, 6 miles of hiking / climbing, and a class 2 rock scramble over the ridge, we arrived at the summit at 4,929 ft. (1502 m). After hanging out at the summit for a bit, we arrived back at the car at 6:02 PM. The longest and most challenging peak we've bagged so far, but damn that was a blast!

Photo Descriptions:
1) View from the top!
2) About to do some more scrambling!
3) Sarah working her way up toward the top of the 2nd of 3 sub peaks on our way to the top.
4) Just a fun photo!
5) At the top of the ridge on the way to the summit.
6) Hers and hers packs on the summit.
7) Just hanging out on the summit.
8) There's a little notebook at the summit for people to sign their names. Troy and David don't recommend mountain biking up there.
9) The sun was setting as we made our way down.
10) Celebratory Singapore Sling in a pineapple, because pineapples are funny.

Feeling sore from yesterday's hike up Echo Mountain, so decided to train legs to help reduce soreness. 🙃

Heavy lat pull-downs are fun and all, but today I could pull my hair back in a ponytail tail without having to use clips to keep the shorter hair back.

@boxxingkanga and I hiked back up to the summit of Rocky Peak today after the trail to a previously planned mountain was closed... and we got to engrave our rock! 💜

Switching to trap bar from sumos to try and rest my hips as they figure themselves out (due to ). 9 weeks in and I've noticed a lot of changes already, which is unexpected since I opted for a slow dosing schedule. (Not complaining though. 😊) Gym wise, still feeling strong AF, but definitely noticing changes in body composition.

Objectively speaking, I haven't noticed a change in strength. Subjectively speaking, I have. Had to dig deep on some reps today that shouldn't have been that hard. Could just be an off day (I did just train 8 people in a row with no break), or this could mark the point where I notice is affecting my strength. Who knows? Either way, still felt pretty strong and cute af.

No change in strength yet, but I'm definitely noticing my muscles fatigue earlier in my high rep sets.

Out of solidarity, doing with a mask on today. Here's a triple @ 395 lbs. If I can do this, you can wear one at Costco / on a walk / pumping gas / walking your dog / etc.

A photo flexing after a run doesn't make much sense, but that was also my default photo pose for the last decade. When I was younger it was a peace sign. Maybe that will transform as well. 😝 Finished the book "On Tyranny" by Timothy Snyder and highly recommend it.

A while back I posted a video about technical barbell row form. Today we talk about flyes. We'll do the tl;dr version first: keep your arms straight and focus on pulling your elbows together instead of your hands.

Full explanation: Muscles around the shoulder joint control your humerus / "upper arm," and have no impact on where your hands go as a result of their contraction. For maximal isolation of these muscles, it's best to think of the end of your elbow (the end of the lever) as what you're trying to move instead of your hands. Looking at flyes, the pecs are the prime mover, responsible for pulling your upper arm across your body ("Horizontal Adduction"); thus, when we're doing flyes, what matters is where your elbows end up, not your hands. Best form: keep your arm as straight as you can without locking out the elbow joint, and focus on pulling your elbows together while maintaining the same amount of elbow bend ("flexion") throughout the movement. If your tendency is to bend your elbows a lot (which is working your biceps, not your pecs), keep your grip open to discourage you from muscling through the movement with the biceps.

I'm so proud of this client: 36.75 lbs. lost in the span of about 11 months. In addition to her hardworking, she has a very cute dog, too! 😊

I'm fortunate to have a roster full of awesome, hardworking clients that all give me reasons to be proud to be their trainer.

Notes about form on the , even though you didn't ask for it: maintain your back as close to parallel to the floor as is safely possible so the force vector is as close to perpendicular to the floor as possible. (Translation: the row is a horizontal pull, so make sure you do it that way.)

Squats and bench are empowering because you are literally pushing something off of you that is trying to keep you down. Never stay down.
