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.

Wake up & CHASE YOUR DREAMS

Over the past little while, I’ve had a chance to get to know myself pretty darn well. In August, I moved to a new state, started a program at a new school, and made a whole new set of friends. I was forced to get out of the comfort zone that I had grown to […]

What Nike meant to say was “Just DON’T do it.” (sometimes)…

The past few months have taught me a very valuable lesson. A lesson that I am still working on mastering fully, but a lesson that I wanted to share with you nonetheless. This lesson has been in patience. As Americans, we learn day-in and day-out that we are living in a fast paced world and […]

Lost in the NUM8ER5

It’s so interesting how much our mind comes into play when it comes to meeting our goals or how we measure our success.  We get so caught up in NUMBERS. In measuring our success with statistics, pounds, percentages. I think it’s completely ridiculous that I can be having a perfectly good day, feeling confident about […]

FULL BODY Depletion Workout

Every 7-10 days or so, I like to do a full body workout that I initially found on Bodybuilding.com, but tailored a little to fit my own individual style.  This type of full body workout will deplete your muscles of glycogen stores, boost fat burning enzymes, and help increase your progress.
