Just eat good food and be 100% compliant with your nutrition.
Train hard and focus on maintaining optimal form whilst getting stronger over time. Progressively overload.
Sleep at least 8 hours per day, everyday of the week, so that you can properly recover and make progress.
Do the above, consistently, for the next 5 years and I can guarantee you will be able to look at yourself in the mirror and see success.
I am not saying it's easy, as if it was, everyone would be doing it, yet everyone is clearly not. I am just saying it's simple.
Sometimes doing the most simple things, consistently, can be quite difficult.
Consistently being disciplined, with your nutrition, training and recovery, for an extended period of time, is actually very simple. The only difficult thing is making the effort to take action and actually doing the things you need to do, day in, day out, to make progress.
You may not look exactly like Ronnie Coleman, or another famous physique athlete that you follow, but you will be the best version of yourself that you can possibly be and that in itself, is success.
Please don't feel sorry for Middy because he doesn't need it at all...he also doesn't realize he is different and he runs, plays, loves, snuggles, begs and barks like any other one year old boy. He also has as special dinner "dance"...it's ADORABLE! Whatever made him this way is so far in his rearview mirror that it doesn't matter anymore. He is ready for his happily ever after now.
He has a delightful personality and a charm that will not quit. He is friendly to all that approach him and all loaded up with kisses for anyone that will accept them. He has been vetted and deemed "healthy as can be". Therefore he will soon be searching for that special someone to call "mom or dad" very shortly. He will require someone with undaunted dedication to him which will be rewarded by a loving relationship that comes around rarely and will no doubt be treasured for years.
He has a cart that he is still becoming accustomed to and enjoys very much on walks on a leash but at home he prefers to "bounce" around and play with his brothers without wheels and does just fine that way. He does require a diaper because although we feel he may have the sensation that he needs to both urinate and have a bowel movement, he is usually not able to control whether it happens or not. He also requires clothing to "anchor" the diaper around his neck as there is no other way to keep it on without legs.
If you have experience with dogs that are specially-abled like Middy, we'd love to hear from you.

Been really focusing on building my shoulders these days because I’ve neglected them for far too long since I first started working out...
Shoulders are definitely one of the most important muscle groups to grow and develop if your looking for that V-tapered physique 💪
About 4 weeks ago I woke up with pain behind my knee, and found there was a little ball back there. It was painful to squat all the way down with just my own weight and also straightening my leg was difficult and a little painful. I went to the doctor and turns out I had a baker's cyst which he drained a couple of days after I found out about it (what he drained out is show on second pic). This is pretty much a pouch that forms on the back of the leg with the fluid that lubricates the knee. That same week I got sick (flu) and felt my other leg was hurting as well around the same area (behind the knee) and I went back to the doctor. With an ultrasound he saw some inflammation in the tendon (probably some kind of tendonitis) and told me I needed complete rest from lifting with legs.
So now after 4 weeks of not doing legs and being inconsistent with lifting (went 1 day on one of those weeks and a couple more the other weeks to do upper body) I'm back but still not doing legs until doctor says it’s ok. Will be doing 4 lifting sessions a week in which I'll hit upper body muscles 2x each (chest & back on one day and shoulders, biceps, & triceps the other, then rest, then repeat)
The point I'm trying to make is work with what you have. I probably will have chicken legs by the time I'm able to do legs again but that's ok, I'll use this time to make my upper body catch up to my legs. .

The Media Access Awards was spectacular! @mediaaccessawards I had such an amazing time meeting wonderful talented actors, actresses, producers,...etc And Award winners! I watched the show Born This Way and I was surprise I got to meet the cast. I like that show because it’s selfless it’s about an awareness and it shows that being different or “born this way” shouldn’t stop anyone from getting a job, living their best life and defining beauty. I love how this event truly shows the ability and not the disability for all kinds of people. I think race, color, disability, physical and mental differences... etc shouldn’t limit us in the movies and many other industries. If you’re unique and you have a voice to shine and bring out the star in you then do it! Don’t let anyone hold you back from letting your vision and abilities come true. You are unique, and most importantly you are a “human” stop labels. People are people and we are one, we are in this together. I also want to thank you Todd Ray @venicebeachfreakshow for this event, it was a lot of fun! Without him I wouldn’t have got connected with amazing people and also the fact that he has helped me a lot along the way with many things and have taught me things I’m still learning about in this industry he’s like a coach to me. #mediaaccessawards#stoplabels#awards#show#actress#sagaftra#nolegsnolimits#limitless#unstoppable#courage#shineon#redcarpet#dress#blackdress#nolegs#camera#film
SER AMPUTADO☑️ Não é apenas você perder um de seus membros, é por muitas vezes você perder a autoestima, a confiança, seu senso de direção, perder o controle e a pior perca de todas, SUA DIGNIDADE.
Ficamos a mercê de uma sociedade que não está nem aí com o próximo, de um governo que nem se quer possui estatísticas decentes sobre nossa "classe", de instituições privadas que fazem e desfazem o que querem conosco, se aproveitam da nossa 1ª fragilidade em nosso momento mais crítico, quando perdemos parte do nosso corpo, logo usam dessa mesma fragilidade para usufruirem do nosso 2º ponto fraco, o financeiro, já que a partir desse momento, a vida dessa pessoa se torna única e exclusivamente uma máquina de sobreviver em função de sua prótese, acordamos e vamos dormir pensando em que momento será necessário uma nova prótese, como é que vamos conseguir dinheiro para pagar a prótese, deixamos de fazer muitas coisas necessárias para nossa existência, pois a partir desse momento nossa existência gira em torno de apenas uma coisa "A AMPUTAÇÃO"
O amputado necessita muito de um tratamento psicológico, por outro lado por muitas e muitas vezes o amputado se torna O Psicólogo, o terapeuta de vários outros amputados, pois a verdade é uma só, somente um amputado vai entender e compreende as aflições de outro amputado, somente alguém com as mesmas características que a nossa compreenderá nossas queixas, angustias, dúvidas e também nossas alegrias, pois por mais que parecem bobas, são as pequenas coisas que nos fazem mais felizes, os pequenos detalhes da vida que nos trás a VIDA de volta.
Quem entende o prazer de tomar banho de pé? Quem entende o prazer de calçar um simples chinelo dedo?
Ser amputado é entrar em um mundo peculiar, Mundo bastante esquecido por muitos por muitos profissionais, pelas instituições de ensino que se quer se dão ao trabalho de estudarem qualquer que seja o assunto sobre nós, esquecidos por uma gama de segmentos que só teriam a ganhar se ao menos lembrassem que a gente existe - Texto @adrielesilvapas#adrielesilva
À TODAS AS PESSOAS AMPUTADAS QUE ME PROCURARAM NOS ÚLTIMOS DIAS E MESES, POR NÓS E POR NOSSA DIGNIDADE!
OBRIGADA POR VOCÊS EXISTIREM ❤️
