My @buffbikinis is currently sitting on my nightstand right by my bed so I see it everyday as motivation to over come this set back and bring my absolute best package when I finally step on stage πŸ’ͺπŸ™Œ

This is not the transformation I really want to be posting, but today is the first leg day I’ve had in 8 weeks! I’m up 7 pounds from my peak week weight.. which is not a lot considering I was immobile for a good 4 weeks. β€’
β€’
β€’
If you didn’t know.. 2 weeks before I was supposed to step on stage for the first time I was rushed to the ER with complications from a surgery I had 5 years ago! Was this unexpected? Not really. I was having symptoms for about a year or longer, the surgeons warned me it could happen, but I didn’t really think anything of it. I was super busy training for a show and running my business.. who has time or even wants to go to the doctors? β€’

Well I was wrong clearly! Your health is so important. All of it, not just working out. Your diet and especially gut health. I never realized how serious it is when something is wrong with your digestive track. β€’
β€’

But I’m happy that I am able to train again and I will step on stage very soon. But for now I’m focused on getting my muscle and strength back πŸ’ͺ A lot of people have told me to wait at least a year before I start training again.. but for me that’s not an option. I feel amazing for having surgery almost 2 months ago.

3 weeks before I was supposed to compete for the first time in an NPC Show | 1 week before the Florida Grand Prix I had to have emergency surgery.. Sometimes life happens and screws up your plans. Keep a positive mentality and you will over come what ever life throws at you. When I am cleared to train again I will come back 10x better then this πŸ’ͺ

You are the most important thing in your life. Make your self a priority, be selfish with your time, and remove anything in your life that isn't serving a purpose.

This is the truth! Just completed my second workout of the day. Why? Because in the spring I will be competing in my first ever bodybuilding competition & if you know me I put my all into everything. I plan on winning & I will make sure I put in the necessary work to get there. β€’

Don't expect life to give you handouts- if you want something, you gotta work for it πŸ’ͺ
