Hi guys! I haven’t posted in a while, my life got busy, and I was caught in the frenzy of trying to find stability in chaos. My work and my personal life were giving me a run for my money hunty, all I could do is keep my head up and look north. Continue reading “Update: Life, Weight-loss, My Thoughts and Dreams”

C885A407-3ABC-4F5D-B350-4BD2F12651C6

Here we go again….. I am officially doing another bodybuilding competition! Wow!! It was a tough decision to make, I had a lot of reasons to postpone my comeback!  It’s been 7 months since I stepped on stage and I’ve been comfortable eating all the sweets. My off-season season didn’t go as planned (oops)! Did I make any improvements on my physique?Am I ready to be exhausted and hungry again for an extended period of time? Do I have the motivation to go through with it?   The most compelling reason to not start prep is my new relationship with my love, Continue reading “Here we go again, my bodybuilding competition!!”

Momentum: Breaking free of your BAD habits

momentumJust Start!!“…easier said then done, trust me I know!! Potato chips, brownies, pizza, fries are begging to get in your belly. The couch has imprints of your body laying comfortably on it, nestled in a warm cocoon. There’s some vapid, thoughtless program on TV that numbs the brain of all the stress and anxiety of the day. So there you lay, binging, numb, warm and Overweight!  How did it get to this? It’s apparent that the weight of  life took a hold of you and stuck. You’re in a fight to release the dead weight, although most days it’s a comfortable companion. Other days, it’s dragging you down, and you want to break free!

One day I’ll lose the weight! I’m going to start going to the gym! I promise myself that I will eat healthier! This is the year!

You’re the Baddest MutherF*cka Around

David Goggins

Today’s leg day was epic… I was in the zone, really pushing the weight to feel uncomfortable. I wanted to feel the burn, and when I did, I would think to myself, “You’re a bad MFer, let’s go!!!” For the last few weeks, I’ve been using my mind to drive me in the gym. And it’s all because of this guy….David Goggins, or “Goggins” as he calls himself (he refers to himself in 3rd person). Have you heard of him?? I recently learned about him through Joe Rogan’s podcast and I’ve been consuming his content like a starved scavenger looking for food. His story is wild… Continue reading “You’re the Baddest MutherF*cka Around”

2018 in Review- You Go Girl!!

1546286168773

2018 New Years Resolution, compete in a bodybuilding competition! (OMG girl, what is wrong with you?? Why??) It was a challenge so big, it frightened me, and that excited me. I was yearning for something physically demanding to catapult my fitness journey. I  coached myself, researched everything online, and worked on a plan. So it began… the 6 day a week workouts, meticulous attention to every gram of food I ingested, a fierce determination to step on stage in a bikini and clear heels. *Gasp, what would people think?* Continue reading “2018 in Review- You Go Girl!!”

New Year Goals

A couple days before the new year,  on 12/28/18, I recorded my thoughts on the battle to practice mindful eating when constantly confronted with unhealthier options. I open up about my fitness journey from competing in a body building competition to facing new challenges with my eating habits.

My goal for 2019 is to build an understanding of nutrition so that I can form parallels in my mind between food and health. Equipped with the knowledge,  I can strengthen my resolve to resist the junk! Hallelujah!  I will meditate on the promise of healing and well-being through a healthy diet. Plus, my body will be in bangin’ shape, I’ll take that!  **twirls and curtsy**
