Lauren. 25. Australian. PCOS. Aspiring Powerlifter. Destroying fat through loving my body. I focus on fueling my body with meat+fats+veggies and eat high fat, low carb. I love to lift heavy and have an aversion to cardio.

All you can eat sushi stop on our road trip. Challenge accepted!


I started 531 today, combined the bench and dead day because I’m not sure when we’ll be able to gym again due to Bluesfest/Byron Bay/Easter.

Didn’t love it. Bench felt ridiculously easy, so much so that I did an extra two sets of five at 45kg because I felt like I’d barely gotten started and repped out 10 on my 5+ last set. Hmm.

Deads felt good but I had only deadlifted Monday and again, not overly challenging.

Accessory work:

Pendlay rows 3x8x40kg

Superset 3 rounds of:

Chest supported rows
Shoulder press
Curlz 4 gurlz


Stretching after a giant bench and dead session. Ow. So sweaty.

~ Slight regret at amount of Red Bull consumed on my long post-work journey to the land of Kels.
~ The Red Bull wings came in handy though. Beat my GPS ETA by half an hour. “Beating your GPS” is not a safe driving challenge. Do not recommend.
~ Oh yeah I got offered a promotion at work. I am now promoted.
~ Road trip to Byron tomorrow. Sleep required.
~ Someone pat my hair and sing me a lullaby. Thanks.

Slight accident involving Deep Heat, forgetting to wash my hands and going to the bathroom.

IT BURNS. IT BURNS SO BAD.


I’m so excited I can’t sleep and I’m listening to Jake Bugg and I’m crying and I better wear waterproof make up because there will be so many tears and I can already feel the goosebumps on my skin HELP I JUST LOVE MUSIC.


Have been in rather a panic about no gym FOR THE NEXT NINE DAYS.

Message Kels, also not enjoying the idea of no gym.

Swolemate feels.


If I just stare at my clothes will they wash and pack themselves? Also if I just think I own a pair of nice gumboots will they materialise?

Do you ever just get really really sad that kelskicksass lives in Australia.

I TOTALLY DO!!

I second that emotion!

It’s unanimous!  Kels, you’re coming to America!

If you work out a deal with your government, I’m there!

I am not amenable to this plan. It is not unanimous.


Sometimes I have the most incredible luck. I had my phone stolen a few months back. I managed to get out of my contract with a telco that drove me mad without penalty due to a complete eff up on their behalf. Absolute blind luck. Then I get a CHEQUE from said company for reasons still unbeknownst to me. Then to top it all off, they call me today and my old phone has been surrended at a police station because some poor soul bought it from the thief online.

So I got out of a telco I hate, got a new phone, got a cheque for a decent amount of cash and then I get my old phone back which I can now sell. AMAZING.
