Yup that’s my naked butt, sorry not sorry 🤪 In honor of #humpday and reminding myself that there’s a shredded badass underneath here. Sometimes you gotta reminded yourself of the awesome things you’ve done and then clap for your damn self 👏🏼💪🏼 I’ll get back there again. Maybe next year. #happyhumpday #throwback #shredded #fitness #fitlife #fitfam #fitchick #fitnessaddict #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmodel #fitnessjourney #gym #gymlife #naturalbodybuilding #nattymuscle #inba #pnba #figurepro #sportsmodelpro #teamusa #passion #coach #trainer #beefcake

Don’t ask me if I’m good;
ask me if I’m grateful.
Don’t be sorry I’m sad;
be relieved I’m not numb.

Don’t tell me I look beautiful;
tell me you see me.

Don’t call me a b*tch;
support me when I’m brave.

And please,
don’t call me sweet;
call me authentic.

Don’t hope for me not to be single;
see that I am so full of love
it flows into every man, woman, and child I meet.

Don’t call my confidence
Vanity.

Don’t call my kindness
Weak.

Don’t call my optimism
Naive.

Don’t call my boundaries
Rude.

Don’t call my self-love
Entitlement.

Don’t call my generosity
Impractical.

Don’t call my calm perspective
Indifference.

And please don’t call my playfulness
Immature.

Don’t pity me as a fool,
because I live in faith.

Don’t think I’m insecure,
because I love you no matter what.

Don’t call me unstable,
because I don’t believe in imprisoning my life
within lines that protect me from living.

Please don’t think my vulnerability
is anything other than my strength.

And watch me fall,
Up. ~Kierstyn Bachmann Berlin #poetry #poetryisnotdead #poet #writer ##fitness #fitlife #fitfam #fitchick #fitnessaddict #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmodel #fitnessjourney #gym #gymlife #naturalbodybuilding #nattymuscle #inba #pnba #figurepro #sportsmodelpro #teamusa #passion #coach #trainer #beefcake

Every time I start to get down about my current situation or get disappointed with where I’m at I need to remember this phrase. “Take a deep breath and remember who the fuck you are!!!” I’ve been through hell and back these last 5 years and accomplished a lot despite all my obstacles. Miracles don’t happen overnight but if you stay consistent and keep trying and fighting through it, you can accomplish just about anything you put you mind to. #rememberwhoyouare #achievements #hardwork #dedication #overcomingobstacles #fighter #fitness #fitlife #fitfam #fitchick #fitnessaddict #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmodel #fitnessjourney #gym #gymlife #naturalbodybuilding #nattymuscle #inba #pnba #figurepro #sportsmodelpro #teamusa #passion #coach #trainer #beefcake

10 years ago I would have never thought food would be such an issue. I’ve never been so frustrated. At least with drugs or alcohol you can get help and exclude those things from your life permanently, but with food you cannot. You need food for daily nourishment and survival. Food has been my way to cope with stress and emotions and it’s something that brings me joy. But it’s also causing me pain. Eating healthy sounds easy but it’s not for me. I did not grow up with a large variety of healthy foods, I was by myself most of the time and ate whatever it is kids feel like eating. And that was not veggies. If I’m going to eat foods daily I want to eat things that I enjoy that have flavor and are exciting. I am not a damn rabbit and eating plants doesn’t excite me at all. This is my battle right now along with accepting this new body and my struggles with living with RA. But I will get through this eventually, it’s just going to take a lot longer than I anticipated. Balance isn’t my strong point, and neither is being ok with being imperfect. #thestruggleisreal #perfectionist #foodie #ilovetoeat #ihatecellulite #fitness #fitlife #fitfam #fitchick #fitnessaddict #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmodel #fitnessjourney #gym #gymlife #naturalbodybuilding #nattymuscle #inba #pnba #figurepro #sportsmodelpro #teamusa #passion #coach #trainer #beefcake #ed

Trying to accept this new body has been one of the hardest things I’ve had to do. I never thought I’d get so far from my competition body but in trying to balance out my life after years of competing I took a few months off of my regular routine and am having a bit more trouble finding my way back. I’m enjoying food and fun with friends a bit too much now and I just can’t keep doing that and have the body that I loved. So rather than jump straight into a hard cut I’m trying to be nicer to myself and more accepting and try to give myself space to mess up and keep trying. But I have to say that it’s been very nice to read things like this. I’ve had quite a few friends compliment me on this current body and even when I explain that I have much more body fat and that I have cellulite and curves. It’s nice to hear them say they like me this way and right now I’m trying to take that all in and be more accepting of myself. I look in the mirror each day and although it was devastating at first I’m slowly starting to make peace with the fact that people can love me for my imperfections and accept me this way and so should I. I felt this pressure of having to look a certain way, and I know now that this is self imposed and these standards of perfection I want to hold myself to aren’t always very realistic. So thank you to the men that go out of their way to make me feel desired and cared for this way. Your kind words are helping me to try and see the beauty in this body even though I know it’s far from the perfect ideal that I want. It’s a slow process but I’m working on it. 🙏🏼💝 #selflove #selfacceptance #iambeautiful #iamstillsexy #fitness #fitlife #fitfam #fitchick #fitnessaddict #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmodel #fitnessjourney #gym #gymlife #naturalbodybuilding #nattymuscle #inba #pnba #figurepro #sportsmodelpro #teamusa #passion #coach #trainer #beefcake

I always thought of “love at first sight”
as being something that only happens
in a movie or a fairytale.
It was some romantic ideal
that I often dreamt of,
and never lost hope in.
That was how I’d meet “The One”,
and it would be magical,
just like the movies right?
Until the day I met you
and I realized there was such a thing.
… it was REAL.
At least to me.
Real and raw alright…
I trusted you and your fancy words,
the poetry and the way you looked at me.
I tore myself wide open willingly.
Completely vulnerable and naked.
But not naked in the terms of something as superficial and temporary as my body or naked flesh,
but stripped deep down to my soul.
I distinctly remember the day you
also taught me that fairytales
don’t always have happy endings. #poetry #writing #poetrycommunity #thoughts #love #heartbroken #fitness #fitlife #fitfam #fitchick #fitnessaddict #fitnessmodel #fitnessjourney #gym #gymlife #naturalbodybuilding #nattymuscle #inba #pnba #figurepro #sportsmodelpro #teamusa #dreambigger #passion #coach #trainer

Had such a nice time celebrating all the successes large and small at our @orangetheorysantarosa Transformation Challenge Dinner. I’m blessed to have met so many wonderful OTF members and friends, very happy to be a part of this family🙌🏼💝 #otftransformationchallenge #otf #friends #family #fitness #fitlife #fitfam #fitchick #fitnessaddict #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmodel #fitnessjourney #gym #gymlife #gymrat #naturalbodybuilding #nattymuscle #inba #pnba #figurepro #sportsmodelpro #passion #coach #trainer

#Flashback #FlexFriday to September 2017 right before I competed in the INBA/PNBA NATURAL UNIVERSE in New Zealand. I started at about the same weight that I’m at now (121-125lbs after holiday eating 😜) and battle my Rheumatoid Arthritis and all the other obstacles life has to offer and with the support of my coach @chrisjantz and friends made it to the lean fighting weight of 96.7lbs. Not a perfect prep by far but I know if I put my mind to something I will keep fighting until I get there. It may not be pretty but I’ll make it 🙌🏼💪🏼 #nevergiveup #keeppushing #fight #hardwork #dedication #fitness #fitlife #fitfam #fitchick #fitnessaddict #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmodel #fitnessjourney #gym #gymlife #gymrat #naturalbodybuilding #nattymuscle #inba #pnba #figurepro #sportsmodelpro #teamusa #dreambigger #passion #coach #trainer

“She had a glass heart once.
She loved the way it
Sparkled and shine with the
Glow of naivety.
Until the world shattered it.
Over and over again.
Hopes, dreams, and all.
So she redesigned it.
She needed it to be unbreakable.
So she picked up her pieces,
Glued them back together,
But added a coat of armor for protection. She would be wiser with the world,
So they couldn’t break her anymore.” Kayil Crow
@rose_thorns1921
Someone told me recently that there is something beautifully naive about me that’s very refreshing. It was so nice to hear because that’s actually one of my favorite parts of my character... the way I seem to “shine with the Glow of naivety” as Kayil says. No matter how many times I’ve been hurt, disappointed, and let down, I always want to believe in the good in each person and the hope that their heart will be kind and their intentions true. Each time my heart breaks I do become a little wiser and that armor a little stronger. But I will not give up hope, and I’ll always hold faith that a love like mine is out there for me. #love #heartbreak #truelove #poetry #photography #art #fitness #fitlife #fitfam #nattymuscle #naturalbodybuilding #bodybuilding #coach #trainer
