Wow.. feels weird posting on insta. Since being back from South Africa I feel a lot of things changed (for the better of course). Being disconnected for 2 weeks was absolutely amazing. Not only did I not worry about posting on insta and sharing my life I didn’t train nor worry about my diet. I ate anything and everything and ended up losing weight compared to “hitting macros” and training “x” amount of days at the gym. It felt good just to live life.. words cannot explain how free I felt. I learned from this experience that I can still achieve goals by not stressing over the little things. I have a very OCD personality with my weekly routine but since I have been back I have been going with the flow. It does seem weird but I can tell it was needed. My body is responding better and honestly not knowing what I’ll eat or if I’ll train is actually kinda fun. Keeps me guessing ha. Anyways... moral of the story.. live a bit more, be daring, try new things and don’t be stuck on a routine. There could be better things out there ✌🏼 - - #love #livelife #happy #me #fitfam #fitness #fitchick #model #travel #words #humpday #weds

My life changed when I became goal focused. Setting something that seems unattainable to later later see it achieved is a feeling that becomes addicting. With hard work and persistence you can become unstoppable. ❤️💪🏽 - #Repost @nutrishopusa ・・・ What motivates you? Set small, measurable, attainable goals daily and they will build habits!

In honor of #wcw 😍 I had to reshare this post by @fit_nae... she hit the nail on the head in regards to challenges many competitors go through that hardly ever talk about. - - Following her journey and seeing her share her real life struggles takes a lottttt of confidence because you are becoming vulnerable to complete strangers but the reality is that many of you can relate.... #Repost @fit_nae ・・・ “Have you ever binged or overate while on prep?”⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ This is a question that slides into my DM’s often.. and the answer is YES! It’s hard to be perfect with your macros all the time especially if you’re dieting. That combined with a low body fat % will signal to your brain that you need to eat. So over eating and/or binging could happen & it’s more common than you think.⁣⁣ HOWEVER we want to minimize this as much as possible (tips below!) ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ More often than not the driver of this is an emotion such as stress, loneliness, anxiety etc. When you’re in a prep these emotions are high!!! You’ve got a lot on your plate, a lot is at stake & it can be hard sometimes to handle the pressure. So we go to food🤷🏻‍♀️⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ If you’re feeling this way take a moment to breathe. I understand!! It’s not that your will power isn’t strong enough- it’s the nature of being human 🖤Becoming aware of this first is key and then adding in stress reducing activities & structuinf your diet appropriately will help.⁣ ⁣ Some examples are:⁣⁣⁣⁣ ✖️Take a half day off work⁣⁣⁣⁣ ✖️Run a bath⁣⁣⁣⁣ ✖️Get coffee or tea with a friend⁣⁣⁣⁣ ✖️Cuddle your dogs 😍⁣ ✖️Diet breaks & refeed days ⁣ ✖️Flexible dieting with macros ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Like I’ve said before, first it’s awareness then compassion. The more you can become mindful about this during your prep, the easier it will be #AfterTheStage 🖤💪🏼⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Please save, tag & share with a friends who’s needs this! 🤗🤗⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ #postcompetition #disorderedeating #bingeeating #postshow #realtalk #overeating #prepstruggles #bikiniprep #dieting #flexibledieting #eatingdisorderrecovery #itsnotaboutthefood #youcandothis #postcompetitioncoach #nutrition #lifecoach #womenempowerment #comppreptips #felxibledieting #iifym #prepdiaries
I’ve grown to love my not so shredded bod 😂 forever I felt I needed to be shredded 24/7 which caused a lot of stress on my body including my hormones. I took a step back and looked at the bigger picture.. there was no reason to be so lean other than me telling myself I needed to. Competing and modeling is not my career just my passion. Once I got this out of my head it felt a weight was lifted off my shoulders. Honestly, it wasn’t easy mentally realizing I am not my leanest and at times it still frustrates me buttttt I’ll take what I have and be grateful with all the other blessings God has given me. A great career in finance, an amazing man who supports me, and the best family a girl could ask for. That to me is worth more than the lbs on the scale ❤️ - 📸 - #transformationtuesday #love #words #happy #fitfam #fitness #model #nutrishopusa #fit #fitchick #instagram #fitnessmodel #az #scottsdale

When I first started my “fitness journey” i had no idea where it was going to take me. I honestly didn’t even plan on it taking me anywhere. Right after college graduation I needed a “new goal” to set for myself to keep my mind busy being I am a type A personality. I purchased a fitness magazine with this gorgeous female on it. It happened to be @amandalatona (brunettes attract to brunettes💁🏻‍♀️). I seriously google stalked this woman to figure out how she started and what got her to where she was. This is how I came across competing on stage. Honestly my goal was to never become a fitness “pro” (whatever that means)... my goal was to look like a cover model. I remember calling my mom and telling her I am going to compete to look like @amandalatona and then get on a cover. She laughed as did I but this was the start to me realizing the power I had. I set my mind to it and with the help of @jpatrickphoto I did it. I landed not only one cover but 2! Both nationally and internationally. Not only covers, but spreads, billboards, ads etc. The goal of this post is simple. YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU SET YOUR MIND TO. Just hustle 😘 - #fitness #fitnessmotivation #words #humpday #love #fit #fitnessmodel #nutrishop #nutrition #model #agency #az #arizona #scottsdale #hmu #fitchick #happy #motivation #alpha
