Ever have a bad day? Of course you have! Everyone goes through a rough day at some point, but it's really dependent on your approach/outlook.

I stuggle with anxiety, and sometimes it gets the best of me. Not today though!

Today, I'm getting it together and putting this smile on my face cause I know I'm not facing this alone. It's πŸ™Œ JesusπŸ‘†and I, no matter what.

You want to look good in a bikini?πŸ‘‡
You want to feel better about yourself?πŸ‘‡
Feel more energized?πŸ‘‡
Eat better?πŸ‘‡
Decide what you want ...
WRITE THAT DOWN.
Make a plan πŸ“ & work on it.
Every. Single. Day.

Is there anything more satisfying than sore muscles from the work you've been putting in? 😈
One of the best feelings is to look back and see that you can now do what you couldn't do 2 weeks ago πŸ”₯

I used to NEVER stretch, mostly because I didn't feel it necessary to do so πŸ‘Ž This resulted in loss of flexibility and an achy body all the time. I ended up staying away from the gym.

But stretching is incredibly important for all of us, not just for lifters. However, for us lifters, we ask, "WHENπŸ• is the best time to stretch?" There's so much debate on this topic but I found the answer on @Muscle_and_fitness:"To summarize…don’t stretch a cold muscle before training, and don’t stretch the muscle you are in the middle of training. However, DO stretch the antagonistic muscle to the one you are training during your workout, and once the session for the body part is complete, finish it off with two or three intense 30-60 second deep stretches." In other words, stretching should be done AFTER training. You should be aiming for those nice, deep stretches - this will be painful, yet doable (do not overdo it). And, please, do not skip your stretches. If anything, you'll find that you will improve in the gym πŸ’ͺ

I'll always love your amazing shots & your skills πŸ™Š -
From time to time, I have moments where I look back on all my pictures, scanning through years of my life.
Today was definitely one of those eye opening moments. The changes, the feats, and experiences molded me to who I am today.
Some pictures are so embarrassing though, I would never post them lol πŸ™ˆ
But I do think a cool fitness shoot soon would be awesome πŸ“·πŸ“Έ

Chicken & Waffles? Nope. Those are definitely waffles, but that's NOT chicken lol 😹
Still super delicious though! -
So who can guess what it actually is? πŸ’­ I know I've posted plenty of food pictures, sorry guys πŸ™ˆ I'll quit! At least for a little while.

Another ab picture 🀷 #sorrynotsorry
You know what's the worst thing about competing?? THE STICKY, SMELLY TAN 😷
-
It's so gross, lemme tell you.
But you know what the best thing? Getting to compete with the last package you brought to the stage. At the end of the day, you are your own competition πŸ’ͺ

*I wish I remember what I was laughing at, cause I really can't remember lol*

This was March 16, 2017. I have had so many ups and downs throughout this time (I AM a bit of a drama queen too so bare with me lol). -
But one thing never changed: My desire to be fit and make constant changes.
Though, yeah, I've eaten like a piiiig some days and then bounced back with a super clean diet cause I hated feeling like crap. I'm not perfect 🀷
-
So, this was me 1 year, 4 months, 19 days ago. My abs now do not look like this. They're not like INSANE or anything but, oddly, I'm jealous of the old bod? Lol

Now, I just want to bask in the soreness of my muscles and appreciate the hard work that goes into all of it. And I'm ready πŸ’βœŒοΈ

Can we just stop comparing ourselves constantly? πŸ™ƒ "The reason we struggle with insecurities is because we compare our behind the scenes with everyone else's highlight real." Most of us fall into this comparison hole where everyone seems to be doing better, or has more, or is more attractive (says WHO?), and it only stops when we realize comparing is only an insult to our own selves.

We all choose to display certain parts of our lives and sometimes people may exaggerate how great their lives really are. All the more reason to not compare πŸ’
Love yourself, and always list all the reasons why you do. Really puts things into perspective ❀️

#Throwing it back to February when we went to Colorado. One of the best times of my life!! πŸ˜‡

I definitely recommend at least visiting the beautiful state. We loved it so much we considered moving there the whole week we were there πŸ˜‚

Comment if you've been to Colorado ✌️

So ... Would anyone like to buy this jumpsuit off of me? 😁
