Words can not describe how happy I am!! Last night was an amazing day, filled with pancakes, spray tan, sushi, tons of almond butter and rice cakes, and most importantly amazing people! .
I loved everything about the @musclecontest LA Championship experience yesterday in Redondo and am a little sad that it’s over. But that just means I will be back for another show soon! .
I was blessed to be surrounded by amazing men and women on and off the stage, in and around the audience and behind the scenes. What a joy to see old friends and make new ones!

”Here is the mystery of life and existence. Please close your eyes again. Enter the stillness, the eternal void. If you can find enough love or awareness in yourself, you will stay conscious and realize as you go deeper that you have been here many times before. But if your love is not yet sufficient to keep you awake, you will go unconscious and when the journey through death is concluded, you will awake in a world equivalent to the love and consciousness you are. You will be more at home than ever before in your life. Either way you go, conscious or unconscious you still arrive at journeys end. You will then realize that love is the most important thing in life. And that the world of the living exists purely for the demonstration of more love. You will see how far it is from love. And you will want to tell the whole world what you have discovered. But that won’t be possible because you have to discover that and declare it and live it while you live. Everyone must discover the secret of love for themselves, if not before they die then after. No-one can be told. This is the never-never world of living on borrowed time. Its blatant disregard for the justice of who really owes who, and who really owes what, creates the vicious injustice or imbalance that never stops growing between the poor and the rich, the handicapped and the strong, the starving and the sleek, the deprived and the privileged So appallingly ill-balanced has it all become, that only the end of time itself, which is now approaching, can settle the accounts.” - AZEDIA, Requiem For the New World

Swipe ➡️ to see where I was six months ago. • Some of you might think: wow she must feel so accomplished and happy with herself.....WRONG. I have been in an absolute sh*t mental place lately (pardon my French). I am so hard on myself and I constantly tear myself down to the point of tears. • I started this journey because I was tired of feeling less than and broken and unwanted. You know what? I still feel that way. A lot. BUT I have learned that feeling strong, beautiful and significant does not come from how you look. It has to come from inside and you have to believe it no matter where you’re at. • My project right now is restoring my self confidence and mental health. A lot of days are harder than others but it’s a journey that is so worth it. I will never “feel” the way I want to all the time, but I WILL learn to push past those negative feelings and keep working and loving. • Thank you for taking the time read this, I’m gonna go eat some pasta now. 🍝❤️ #fitness#mentalhealth#balance
I went downstairs to my treadmill to walk on it and just couldn’t. I could NOT make myself get on. I know I hate afternoon workouts and I knew it was going to be super tough for me to do this today. I took a 30 minute power nap, put on my shoes, and told myself to do something. Just move for at least 10 minutes and you’ll feel better. And I do! I made up this workout and did it twice. 10 jumping jacks, 10 squat jumps, 10 high knees (each knee up is one), 9 jumping jacks, 9 squat jumps, 9 high knees, etc until I got to 1 each. Then repeat. I would love to say I didn’t rest in between, but I did rest after 8 and after 6. This was challenging! But it’s also something I can do literally anywhere (like my living room here- you can see a tiny bit of my dog here!🐶). Swipe for my dinner! Leftover spicy maple glazed chicken, sweet potatoes, corn, and brown rice. So satisfying. I’m really proud of myself that I moved a bit tonight and got a little sweat sesh in sweat😅 (my insecurities are telling me not to post this bc my stomach looks big, but I’m pushing through that fear talking because I’m too proud of myself to let that voice win) #fitness#fitnessgirl#fitnessmotivation#homeworkout#fitlife#healthy#healthydinner#healthyfood#homecardio#exercise#fitfam#macros#balance#eatbetternotless
