📦📦Packing and getting the heck out of this two horse town! JUST KIDDING, we’re moving to the apartment complex NEXT DOOR because we live in the best city ever and never want to leave! 🌴☀️
With a baby on the way plus two dogs, we decided to upgrade to a 2 bed, 2 bath apartment! I CANNOT WAIT to decorate, especially the nursery 👶🏻
I plan on doing most of my shopping at @homegoods but if anyone has other favorite places to shop for home decor and furniture, comment below! 💕
I’ve been dealing with shoulder issues for over a year now, but I still manage to fight through the pain and grind it out. Haven’t had a pump like this in FOREVER. Felt great 😎 thanks to @costplusnutrition for keeping me up to date on all the supplements. 100% Best supplement shop in town!!

Just wanted to update everyone. I felt great onstage despite my back, and i tightened up quite a bit from the last show which I was told I needed to do. I really feel like this was my best package yet; unfortunately, I was not the look the judges wanted. I received some feedback and will work on making changes for my next show. I came in a bit to lean and need to not only fill out, but really work on my stage presentation and stances. 🤦🏻♀️ I took 9th in the Masters division but did not place in the open. It was an amazing show put on my Tim Gardner , and one I am so excited I was able to be a part of. Thank you to my supporters and friends nd to my team of coaches: Mark Myhal, my training coach, David Schachterle and Tyler Donald for helping prep for the show, Rebecca Biddle of BB Custom suits for my gorgeous bikini, Stanza and Lyza of @getflawlesshair #ifbbprobikini#2018tampapro#centerstageposing#kennywallachposing#bbcusstomsuitsbrandamassador#getflawlesshair#bandbellathlete#bikini 👙 #ifbb#npc#theshowcasepage
Motivation comes in all forms..today it’s comes in a look back(no pun intended) to the day it all started for me 5/8/15(pic on left). This is the day I decided to make a change in my life. I didn’t like the way I felt and definitely didn’t like the way I looked. I thought I was doing things right from a health standpoint, but clearly I wasn’t. I was 262lbs of a lot of fat and bad body weight. My diet and training were far from what I would call “on point.” I made a decision that day that I wasn’t ever going to look like that again. It started as wanting to just look better and then turned quickly into wanting to compete (thanks to @mattkouba for a little push in that direction). Point is, no matter what it is in life, if it’s got you down, change is as simple as making a decision and seeing it through. It takes time, energy and focus. But if you want something so bad that you’re willing to do whatever it takes, anything is possible.
I look back at that picture and where I’m at today(pic on right from check ins last week 245lbs) and thank god I made the choice that I was going to get better everyday and work towards a goal. Self improvement is a daily activity. If you’re not getting better, you’re going backwards. There is no middle ground. I continue to work towards all of my goals on a daily basis, especially in bodybuilding. It’s a marathon..I have to remind myself this all the time. We all want instant results. Sometimes that’s just not possible. Keep pushing. Keep focused. And always stay positive. Good things come to those who work and put in the effort. #motivationmonday#focused#positivevibes#workinprogress#alwaysworking#motivation#youcandoit#itsaprocess#bodybuilding#fitness#classicphysique#fit#tattoo#mohawk#npc#npcillinois#rivalus#nomorelovehandles

Pushing everyday to lift heavy, eat on point, and keep focused. This is the current lock screen on my phone. Motivate yourself. And when you have those days you can’t, remember those who are rooting for you, believe in you, love you. 💪🏼 .

Had the opportunity to meet up with not only a stellar client, but also my first ever bodybuilding friend, @lgfitpts this past weekend while in Raleigh!✊🏼
At my very first bodybuilding show as a high school senior, scared to death and still in my shy stage, Luis reached out at check ins and started talking and helping explain how shows were typically ran, putting my nerves at ease, despite my being like 155lbs soaking wet and the only teenager in the entire show lololol. 😂🤦🏼♂️
Fast forward, and I’ve had the opportunity to help with 2 of his contest preps (pics 👉🏼), and now some nutrition & cardio programming as he pursues some big powerlifting goals. It’s crazy how life’s paths cross, but even crazier how awesome and supportive friends can be over the years.🙏🏼
Meanwhile, as this photo was taken, @katieanne100 was deadlifting the equivalent of a small car and putting every man in the gym to complete shame.😅 #APFitness#LGFitPTS#Raleigh

4 reasons you should NEVER miss a Monday:
1. When you work out, your body releases endorphins and this can be an excellent way to combat ‘Monday blues’. It will make you feel alive.
2. Smashing your Monday session will make you feel like you are in control of your week, and that you can take on anything.
3. You need a brutal Monday to sweat out the weekends over indulgences.
4. You will be more likely to eat something healthy, as you will be in a more healthy mind set.
