Flexed vs Non-flexed today. 3.5 weeks post show. Definitely not as lean as I was for the show, but I'm fairly happy with where I'm hanging out currently. This is a totally maintainable body fat level for me doing very little cardio and eating basically as much as I want. 4.5 years of lifting and building muscle has given me one of the greatest gifts ever: a faster metabolism. The more muscle your body has, the more energy and calories it burns to just live. I do make sure to continue to stay active and lift weights even when I'm not in prep. I just don't dedicate as much time to the gym or do nearly as much cardio. And eating pizza on the reg is pretty awesome... πŸ’πŸΌ. But I stay mindful of portions. Not restricting my diet as severely during this prep helped me to not have an issue with binging post show. Not that my reverse diet went according to plan; moving made that too much to handle immediately after the show. But I have been aware of what and how much I'm eating. #TeamHeugly #4weekspostshow #nlaforher #ifbbpro

Single arm T-bar rows are one of my favorite back exercises πŸ™ŒπŸΌ I am using @versagripps around my wrists to help me grip the bar for longer. Using the Her Amino Burner from @nlaforher during my workouts to maintain muscle mass while burning fat. (20% off of anything at nlaforher.com with code FITAMY20) Headphones are @jaybirdsport. have been struggling a little to find a new routine here in Colorado. So many big changes recently. But making it to the gym ALWAYS makes me feel better and helps me to feel like my life makes sense. Endorphins are real πŸ’™πŸ™πŸΌ. Get your booty to the gym and I promise your day will be better because of it. πŸ’ͺ🏼 #becauseglutes #teamheugly #nlaforher #ifbbpro #colorado #poweryourpassion

One of the best things about being in fitness and being on #TeamHeugly has been knowing that I have friends and teammates everywhere because of it πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’™ Today, I met @getfitwithsuz. We started talking on IG after realizing that we were both moving to Denver from Utah this month! So now we are like instant best friends! Lol. Amazing, right?? She is competing at Team U in New Jersey this coming weekend. Wishing her so much luck! You are going to do amazing, girl!!! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ #ArmbrustProGym #colorado #fitness #fitfam #nlaforher #ifbbpro

Only 6 days living in Denver and I made it to @armbrustprogym for a lift! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ’ͺ🏼 #TeamHeugly #NLAforHer #BecauseGlutes #IFBBPro #ArmbrustProGym #Colorado

It's been somewhat frustrating to know how hard I worked preparing for my last competition, every macro meticulously tracked, every workout and cardio session done.... knowing I was in my very best shape and the leanest I had ever been, and to place so poorly. It's a hard sport. The competition has gotten fiercer. There are more Bikini Pros now than there were when I had been on stage last, by a LOT. And to stand out you have to be willing to do more, go farther, be willing to dedicate everything to this sport. Being a mom of 2 young children, with a husband and a household to run, it gets hard for me to justify just how much I have to give up to do this sport. Not saying I will never compete again, just not sure how much I can honestly give to this sport without giving up what matters more to me; my family. A lot of women have reached out to me to ask how I balanced training for a competition while still being a full time mom. I guess in my mind, I'm willing to give more time to my training for short periods of time, knowing it's temporary. It's not something I could do forever or even for many months at a time.
And it's honestly been really hard and crazy to immediately jump into packing and moving out of state right after getting home from the show. Such a drastic change of routine!! But life always has twists and turns and all we can do is roll with the punches πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ #realtalk #fitness #ifbbpro #fitmom

Saying goodbye to our house and Utah today 😒. We are off to Denver for big adventures for @killerky1e to pursue big dreams in the Audio world with Brown Note Productions. So darn proud of my hubby for chasing his dreams. We will be living about 20 mins north of downtown Denver and Kyle will be in charge of the Audio at most of the shows at Red Rocks as well managing some big name tours 😍. Can't wait to meet the #DenverFitFam and make lots of new friends in Colorado! I think I will be planning a meet up within the next month or two for all of the FitFam out there! I can't wait to meet you all! πŸ’™ #movingday #nlaforher #Denverbound #brownnoteproductions

Happy Father's Day to the two daddies in my life that make everything so much better. I have been a daddy's girl since I was born, through and through. These two men are simply irreplaceable in my life πŸ™πŸΌ #fathersday

Happy Father's Day to the man who made me a mama. The one who loves my babies fearlessly. Thank you @killerky1e for teaching me so much about love. πŸ’™πŸ™πŸΌ #fathersday

Well, for the past 2 weeks since my competition, my training and diet have admittedly taken a backseat to packing, moving, cleaning, and caring for my two kiddos. Moving is a rough business. But we are heading to Denver for good by Monday. With that said, it's been a whirlwind of sorting, organizing, packing, donating, etc.... and I haven't tracked one darn macro, and have made it to the gym like twice.... ☹️ I can tell that this past prep was one of my healthiest because my body is responding in a very healthy way post show and that makes me SO happy. I have eaten pizza and ice cream more times than I would like to admit, haven't eaten enough protein, etc.... and my body hasn't blown up and my cravings aren't that of ravenous animal. πŸ™πŸΌ I feel quite good overall and am so grateful for my health. πŸ’™ #movingsucks #TeamHeugly #IFBBPro #nlaforher

Change is scary.... it is. I'll be completely honest with you. And I feel like I have had a lot of big changes in my life lately: surgery to remove my breast implants 4 months ago (leaving me with practically nothing up top. I wasn't gifted post 2 babies in the boob department), to training extremely intensely for the past 3 months to get on the IFBB Pro Bikini stage again for the first time in 3 years, to now packing up everything we own to move out of state. I haven't moved out of state since I was 16 years old and I was much less afraid of anything back then... I also owned a LOT less... πŸ™„. I'm afraid to change cities and states after making Utah my home for the past 15 years! But the choice is to move and so move we must. Praying for the strength and courage to get through the rest of this week, packing up and giving away everything in this house with two small wild children (my son quite literally climbs on the kitchen table and tries to swing from the chandelier), while Kyle is already working in Denver.
Doing hard things, things that scare us, things that challenge us, things that bring us to our knees is what inevitably makes us stronger. πŸ™πŸΌ #courage #strength #Utah #Denverbound #eddieprewphotography πŸ“Έ by @eddieprew #Nlaforher #TeamHeugly #BecauseGlutes (photo from April 2017 ☺️)
