sometimes I get scared that you don’t exist.

Sometimes, I get angry that you have not found me yet. I get angry because there have been times I have needed you and cried out for you. I have hoped and prayed and begged for you. I asked, and you never answered. I called out, and there was no response. I searched, and you […]

The Truth about Bodybuilding.com

TAKE YOUR HEART SPOTLIGHT: BODYBUILDING.COM I’ve been a loyal bodybulding.com customer since before I can remember. In fact, I have harbored such an intense loyalty to the company that I actually feel as though I’m being unfaithful if I shop anywhere else.

7 things your reflection might forget to say

Wake up in the morning, walk into the bathroom, flip on the light, …and let the attack begin. There you are, five minutes into your morning, and you’re already experiencing a full-blown, no holds barred attack.

awakening.

Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted. These past few weeks have been a whirlwind, but I made it out alive and I’m stronger than ever. I also gained a new perspective on the world that I can’t believe I have been missing out on for so long. I thought I’d share… All of […]

Law of ATTRACTION

Lately, my life has been overwhelmingly blessed by attraction.   No, silly, not THAT kind of attraction… (my awesome, funny, charming, wonderful boyfriend does this super adorable thing where he doesn’t exist…) ANYWAYS– I’m talking about the LAW OF ATTRACTION. The idea that ‘you get what you give‘ or ‘you receive the forces that you […]

BOOTY VOLUME.

Last week, I hit a plateau with my lifts. I wasn’t getting sore with the rep and weight ranges I could perform, but I was at at point where I felt like  I was going to injure myself if I tried to increase my weight. Instead of staying stagnant, I decided to switch things up […]

CHANGE the way you THINK

I challenge you to stop focusing so much on your failures and, instead, celebrate all of your many accomplishments. Rather than dwelling so much on how far you still have to go, take a minute to reflect on how far you’ve already come.
