I don’t count this as an actual chin-up because it’s using momentum and not starting from a dead hang BUT OMG IM GETTING THERE?!?!?!?!? Yes/No/Maybe??? Hoping that in another week or two I’ll be able to do it from the dead hang 💪 GOALS. I HAS THEM. 😬 What are you working on right now? . . #nerdstrong #nerdstronggym #chinups #workoutgoals #workoutmotivation #geekfitness #geekstrong #nerdfitness #neverstopneverstopping #fitgeekgirl

I find my art and how I capture imagery to be organic and designed around the artist. It’s a collaboration and my ultimate goal is creating something together we both love. I find this image to be sexy, but beautifully designed by nature and nurture. The waves, the colors, and how the wind blows her ribbons... some people just see a butt... I see a body which seems as if Michelangelo himself would’ve been inspired to climb Mount Altissimo for marble. : : : : Artist: @robincyn Photographer: @geekstrong : . : : : : : . : : #geekstrong #robincyn #cosplaysidebyside #instacosplay #longbeachcomiccon #longbeachcomiccon2018 #casualcosplay #cosplayvscharacter #cosplayphotoshoot #saltlakecomiccon #rosecitycomiccon #propmaking #cosplaying #chunlicosplay #malibubeach #nycc #dragoncon #fanexpo #lbcc #fanx #steetfighter2
Seeing @donsaladino tonight was a real highlight. He’s been such a huge part of my fitness/life overhaul this year. Thank you so much for the advice and encouragement. Wouldn’t be in these skinny jeans without ya. 💪🏻🏃🏻‍♀️👖 . . . . . . . #motivation #fitnessmotivation #fitness #coverreadywithdon #workout #training #coach #photooftheday #picoftheday #instaphoto #donsaladino #geekgirlstrong #geekstrong #healthylifestyle #encouragement
#tricep push-ups give you grief? Whether it’s due to them hurting your wrists, or that you are still building up strength... give tricep presses, from laying on your back, a try! For these you lay on the floor. Bend your knees and plant your feet firmly on the floor. Press your lower back into the floor and engage your core muscles. Start with the dumbbells either overhead or at your sides. Keep your elbows tucked directly alongside your rib cage for the whole move. Press up so that your arms are straight over your shoulders, palms facing in, and lower to where your elbows are at about 90 degrees, and your sides, wrist right above elbows. Aim for 8-15 reps. If 15 reps is easy, increase your weight, as the last 3 reps should be very challenging. Don’t smash your face.
This strategy can be done by almost anyone and reaps major results. I don’t make outlandish claims unless I can back them up, with these tactics you’re looking at double the weight loss compared to a standard calorie controlled diet.
 Break down of each point using me as an example:
 My maintenance calories are: 2,500 
The calories in a pound of fat: 3,500

1. 500 calorie deficit: 1 gram of fat loss a week 
2. Extremely high protein diet: burns off a third of the protein calories with digestion (300cal for me) High protein also helps you retain muscle on a diet and if you care about aesthetics this is what you want. It’s also really really filling, makes it easier to avoid cheating on dem dirty foods (an easy way for me to do this is to eat a kg of meat) 
3. Eat a kg of fruits and vegetables: covers your nutritional bases and if you reach those fibre numbers your body will burn an extra 60-90 calories 4. Eat 2-3 times a day. Ending snacking makes it easier to track your calories, don’t have the time to open an app three times a day for 60 seconds? You probably don’t have what it takes to lose weight then
 5. Weight training maintains muscle on a diet and helps you look more athletic over emaciated. If you can’t get to the gym do callisthenics, having more muscle mass burns more calories at rest than it’s equivalent in fat mass
 6. Time your carbs around training, carbs are more likely to be burned off as heat energy or stored as glycogen after exercise 7. CAUTION. Start on a low dose (50mg) if you’re considering this and then work your way up, due to its stimulatory effect you can burn an extra 100-200 calories a day at the higher end. Because of the way it interferes with sleep, it’s a good idea to stop 6 hours before bed-time
 8. Walking 10,000 steps in a day if you aren’t already is an easy way to keep you active. This burns an extra 140 calories for me 
9. Chew gum all day: burns 11 calories an hour, which can add up to 110-140 calories a day
 So for me my additional calorie deficit outside of food restriction is up to 870. This number is hypothetical and the sceptic in me tells me it shouldn’t be that high, so I round down to 500 to ensure it’s realistic

Surround yourself with people who get you! Find your tribe. Heck, find multiple tribes... but definitely find people who support you instead of people who are “Debbie downers” are constantly trying to tell you what you can’t do. I’ve found multiple tribes, really... I’ve got my fit tribe, my tribe of people who don’t roll their eyes at me with fitness, and who actually work WITH me instead of just asking me questions about stuff they’ll never actually try, or saying negative things about exercise and nutrition in general. I’ve got my nerd army... the people who get the nerdy side of me. Who like comics and superheroes and books and video games... and just being downright silly! Sometimes these tribes overlap, sometimes they don’t... but my goal is to get more overlap happening by helping more people find both their nerdy and their fit side (*note that I said “fit side” and not “fit size.”*) #geekyfit #fitnerd #fitgeek #nerdyarmy #fitarmy #autumncalabrese #nerdstrong #findyourtribe #geektribe #geekstrong #healthnerd #healthgeek

I’m still 🤯mind blown by how detailed and skilled of an artist @armoredheartcosplay is with her Cosplays. I provided a second photo close up of her Ciri. Also, Netflix’s Witcher TV show casts Superman’s Henry Cavill!

Flashback Friday to my first shoot with @moriahlynnecosplay and I’m still in disbelief how easy it was and still is to create with her! Such amazing chemistry and organic art between us!

This leg move is so much harder than it looks. Granted, if your legs are shorter you may have an advantage here... but either way... rough! My leg never touches the ground. I change my hand positioning because I don’t want to rest into my shoulders/neck too much. Whew! I want to get to the point of being able to handle ankle weights here... though, body weight does plenty!

Darla, the poor fishy! Seriously. This was a top 10 all time for me. I spent most of D23 with Shel and I don't remember ever seeing a more accurate Cosplay of an animated character. She had a lisp that really was caused by the retainer she made, which attached to her fake braces, and the sweater made by @bliss_gifts and her 🐠 FISH!

ONCE DOWN THE DARK PATH : “...a Jedi's strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will...” : Yes.

Some edits feel like paintings. I’ll edit an image until it feels pleasurable to my eyes and sometime the edit is 15 minutes and sometimes it’s 2 hours. This photo took me around an hour to find this perfect tone of color. I was so close for so long until I settled on these tones. Some images will never give me the feeling of the subtle or harsh beauty I’m attempting to capture but it doesn’t stop me from trying. I feel extremely proud of the colors and light in this image. This is one of my favs and her expression and pose just completed it perfectly for me. : : : : Ciri the Heiress to the throne of Cintra: @armoredheartcosplay Photographer: @geekstrong : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : #cosplaysidebyside #instacosplay #casualcosplay #cosplayvscharacter #comics #cosplayphotoshoot #propmaking #cosplaywig #fanexpo #ciricosplay #lbcc #witcher #paxwest #witchercosplay #cosplaying #twitch #armoredheart #twitchstreamer #cirilla #cirillacosplay #gamer #geekstrong #dragoncon
