Fruit cups! 

I refrigerated the fruit before I prepped them so that they’d be cool when served. I put 2 layers of cottage cheese in between to add some protein as well as some honey. Great healthy snack for summer!

So I’ve gained some new followers recently and thought I’d share my journey with y’all! 

I started off anorexic in high school with a BMI of 17. When I got complications, I stopped what I was doing and retrained my stomach. Unfortunately, I over did it and reached 150+lbs. My BMI was 26. I would be binge eating and drinking beer every day. It was great to have food freedom, but I felt awful and hated what I was doing to myself. It wasn’t until I joined ROTC in college that I made a change  because I was tired of feeling ugly. Exercising for the first time in my life was hard, especially since it was a make or break factor to my success in the program. I may not have joined the military, but it taught me 2 things: discipline and hard work.

Today, I’m training to become an NPC bikini competitor. I never thought I’d get to this point in life, but I did. If I can, so can you!! Keep on keeping on y’all!

Prep Update: Unfortunate Circumstances

So I wanted to fill y’all in on my comp prep. Last I posted about it, I was probably 4 weeks out from Adela Garcia Classic (June 21st). Unfortunately, I had to be with family, so I had to postpone my show date.

I’ve postponed it twice already. Both for the same reason. As much as I want to say that life doesn’t want me to do it, I want to keep trying. Guys…life sucks sometimes, but we keep on.

Current Workout Split:
Shoulder/Chest/Tricep
Quads/Booty
Back/Bicep
Hammies/Booty
Shoulder/Chest/Tricep
Legs
Back/Bicep

Changed legs to 3 times a week to build up muscle. I don’t ache for days after leg day and am usually good to go after 1 day.

Anyway, Happy Tuesday!

I see people putting negative comments on photos that people post who have worked hard to get the bodies they’ve achieved. How about we try being positive and respectful, y’all? We live in a society where judging others is the first thing we do. STOP IT!!! There’s no reason to hate other people whether they’re fat, skinny, fit, etc. Lift people up, not down!

Honestly Speaking…

Quit paying good money for those hype diet programs that promise you that you’ll lose weight if you use their products.

There’s no magic pill or smoothie that will give you PERMANENT results if you have bad habits. You may lose some weight, but if you don’t change those habits, then expect all that weight to come back when you stop taking them. The hard truth: you’ll more or likely lose water weight rather than fat.

Know that supplements are meant to “supplement” (to add on to) proper nutrition and exercise. There’s no easy way out because if it were easy, then everyone would look like supermodels. It’s all about dedication, hard work, patience, and persistence.

I’ve been asked many times if I’d like to be an Herbalife distributor, but I refuse to because drinking shakes doesn’t teach people anything about weight loss. Do you really want to be doing that for the rest of your life? Sounds like a very inefficient way to go about losing weight.

Do it the right way. I can tell you now that you will struggle and that you may want to give up from time to time, but you’ll thank yourself in the long run for not giving up. Have the courage and strength to be better than you were yesterday. Make a change for your health and wellness!

The secret to permanent weight loss?
Caloric deficit and exercise.


Someone told me that I look like a figure competitor. I’m training for bikini. Hmm…maybe I should change my goals 😄
