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 […]

Flipping the Birdie to Self-Loathing

There I was, halfway through a 90-minute hot yoga class, panting like a (downward) dog, cursing my (aunt) flow, while practicing my Vinyasa Flow, and sweating my (figurative) balls off. For some odd reason, the teacher decided to worship birds today. We chirped and pecked our way through pigeons,  eagles and swans. We performed variations […]

In a room full of darkness, all I saw was light.

  I’m scared. Not the kind of scared where you check the closet twice for monsters and make a flying leap onto your bed so the girl from The Sixth Sense does not reach out from underneath to grab your legs. Not the kind of scared you feel on the drive to your boyfriend’s house […]

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 […]

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 […]

SHOULDERS//CHEST workout

I’ve found myself an awesome workout partner here in Arizona. He is in the physical therapy program at my school and we started lifting together a couple months ago. Everyone has their own styles and preferences when it comes to working out, and I tend to go back-and-forth between lifting with someone and lifting alone. […]

THE INFAMOUS “AB” QUESTION

Let’s talk about ABS! Your gut. Midsection. Tummy. Belly. Stomach. First thing’s first, we all have a six pack. Every one of us. The “sexy six pack” that many people desire is due to the rectus abdominis muscles, shown in the picture below. These muscles run up and down the midline of your body, one […]

PROMISE yourself.

Bear with me here for a minute while I try to sift through my emotions and thoughts and get something (at least slightly) logical down on paper. I had no intention of writing a blog post tonight; in fact, the only thing on my “to-do” list was to cuddle up with my new heated blanket […]
