Happy Thursday! #throwback 🏆 💜💎 ******************************** These photos are from earlier this season when I took 4th at the #optimumclassic2018 and 1st at #StLouisPro. I’m not quite ready to step back on stage again this year. I’m mentally, physically, and emotionally just not in a place to make that commitment. I’ll update you on my physique over the weekend or early next week. Let’s just say, you might be surprised! I’m not stage lean, but I want to share that with you. More so, as my friends, family, and followers, I’d love to bring you along on my ‘peaking process’ at some point. I literally do a night and day transformation in a matter of days, so you may never know when I intend on hitting the stage. I’m not obsessed with checking my abs or over restricting myself for months at a time. I’m normal ass Isha. I’m more like the everyday woman than you could ever imagine. I’m a curvier competitor. I’m just under 5’1”, a stage weight anywhere from 93-103lbs or so. Even at my leanest my curves make an appearance. I rarely step on the scale, but I’ll be sure the next time I decide to hit the stage to document the last 2 weeks, including diet, training, and weight...as well as what’s going on in my head. Actually, what’s going on in my head is probably the most important aspect. As many of you know, I’ve always trained myself. It’s been nearly 6 years, and you’d think it’d get easier, but the truth is, it can be very taxing and exhausting. You have to be disciplined and hold yourself accountable and to a high standard. Sometimes I just want a pint of ice cream. I want a burger or two or three...and I have no coach other than myself to say, ‘Hey...how important are your goals?’ It’s really just me. Me with a dream. The same dream for 6 years...Olympia...trying day in and day out to reach it, and to help others reach their’s. I have no complaints...this shit is tough though. I’ve seen how this sport and 6 year process has brought out the best and worst in me. Mainly the best, and I’ve met some of my best friends because of it. Today, I reflect. I’m not forcing myself to make a decision about competing. I’m sitting on it. #ifbb #bikini #throwbackthursday

Happy Wednesday! My #humpday #wcw goes to one of my favorite people and prep client @getfitwithnay_ 👸🏾💎 She just recently finished in the top 15 in a stacked class of 30+ gorgeous bikini competitors at #JrNats. It wasn’t the placement we were hoping for, but I’m still so incredibly proud of this statuesque beauty! She’s an absolute dream to work with. Our FaceTime checkins are ridiculous! If we aren’t careful we can sit and chat bikini, life, and faith forever! She’s truly become a friend, which ignites my desire to see her succeed all the more! She has what it takes! The feedback was incredible, and matched EXACTLY my coach’s intuition. The game plan is set and we are now sitting at 5.5 weeks out from USAs, and ready to rock and roll! The changes will be very minor, as per the judge’s critique. Small tweaks at this level can greatly improve one’s placement. We are both so incredibly excited, because we know what needs to be done and we have the blueprint to get there! SWIPE for stage shots and video. Watch out, because we’re upping the ante for USAs! 💪🏽 👠Posing/Prep Coach: @isha.meshed

50 shades of purple 💜💜💜 #transformationtuesday !**********************************************. Apr. 2015 ➡️June 2016 ➡️May 2018 #glutes **********************************************Not much has changed over the years in terms of choosing a suit color. A shade of purple is my go to. 💁🏽‍♀️ BUT what has changed is the shape, size, fullness, and conditioning of my glutes. I hadn’t realized my improvements—especially since earning my Pro card back in 2016...and today I’m giving myself a good old fashioned ‘pat on the back’ !👏🏽 **********************************************Currently, I don’t have any shows solidified in stone. I’m just coasting along praying for a little extra guidance, as to my next move. Should I change my signature purple? Should I hang my heels up for now? Change my hair style? I’ve had a ton of questions lately, and a few amazing friends who have helped me get closer to answering those questions. Sometimes I want to share with all of you more in-depth where I am and who I am. Would any followers be interested in Live chats? More stories? Video posts? I have lots to say...lots on my mind. Are there things you’d like to know about me whether it’s about training, diet, my ‘personal life’, family, pets? Etc. I’m an open book...and mystery is usually the genre. I talk only/mainly about my competitions, but there’s often so much more going on in this complex brain of mine. AND you thought this was only an early #humpday post. 😂😂😂 I got off on a tangent. Anywho, loves. Find something to celebrate about yourself...your uniqueness, your improvements, your complexity, your challenges...yes...your challenges...we are never handed anything we aren’t strong enough to conquer and overcome. Celebrate your dreams, and every big or small step you take today to reach them! Happy Tuesday! 💜********************************************** #ifbb #bikini #pro #bikinipro #npc #diva #mesheddiva #fitness #fitspo #inspo #fitchick #girlswholift #girlsthatlift #empowerment #empowering #empower #empoweringwomen, #throwback #motivation #transformation #bebold #dreambig #nevergiveup #celebrate #olympia2019

#MotivationMonday goes out to my Sponsored Posing Athletes - MESHED DIVAS! 👑********************************Over the past two weeks these women have completely slayed the bikini game! I honestly don’t know where to even start! I’m just so incredibly proud. I know I made the right decision choosing each of them to represent the DIVA BRAND! When you see them pose, there’s just a sass, sex appeal, and energy that is undoubtedly DIVA. It’s confidence, poise, and commands the attention of both judges and audiences. So let me shine a BIG SPOTLIGHT on these DIVAs recent achievements. Give these women a follow—each of them are amazing role models on and off the stage. BRAVO DIVAS! 🏆🙌🏽💎********************************
@krisifenner : this dark haired beauty just scored an OVERALL @teamontrack ‘s #MNstate June 9th. She followed up her stellar performance a week later at Junior Nationals, with a top 3 finish! Like whoa! This woman is going Pro! There’s zero doubt 2018 is it! ********************************@reireibikini : Her first time on stage she scored the OVERALL! She has the IT! Her second time on stage was this past weekend at #JrNats, and she walked away with a top 4 finish! She’s gearing up for USAs...watch out! She’s determined and nothing can stand in her way! ******************************** @mscrystalperry : this Bikini A pint-sized spit fire makes me so proud with her fierce determination. She just scored her Nationals Qualification this past weekend, and is now gearing up to bring a Pro Card worthy physique to her first Nationals this Fall. I cannot tell you what her NQ means to me. This was her final show of the season...her final shot, and she made a slam dunk! BRAVO! ********************************
@lmrami_fit : When she poses, something just comes to life in her and I’m mesmerized! It brings a smile to my face every time! Her drive, and relentless pursuit for continued improvement is what I love and admire so much. She’s a go-getter, who two weeks ago walked away with a top 3 finish!********************************@kallyraefitness : She earned her pro card at Bikini/Fitness Universe last year. This year we’re going for Pro in the NPC/IFBB.

My oh my...how time flies! #throwback #jrnationals 2016 🏆 #prepro **********************************************. This weekend two years ago was HUGE for me! It was my first time on the #JrNats stage. I had just come off of an overall win. I was excited, nervous, but mostly excited! What the heck were the judges going to think of me?! I didn’t earn my Pro Card that weekend, but it solidified me as a Top 3 contender for the remainder of the year. To think I’ve competed in 10 Pro shows since then is crazy! If you’re curious my feedback: I had beautiful conditioning, but too conditioned compared to the 1st @msmegangillis and 2nd place @evavictoriast winners. So my quest that entire year was to find balance. **********************************************. I want to wish all the athletes competing this weekend good luck! 🍀 I know how special these moments vying for Pro are...AND a special shoutout to a few of my gorgeous Posing DIVAs @krisifenner and @reireibikini, my prep client @getfitwithnay_ who has made me proud beyond belief these last few months...I’m seriously like a kid on Christmas...her package 🎁 has me like 😍, as well as my lovely posing client @sammyhoule_fit . I don’t know how I got so lucky to have such a killer and stacked squad—these women are absolutely queens on fire!!! 👑🔥 When I say each is bringing it...they’re bringing it!!! You know I’m rooting for you, loves!!! I believe in each of you, fiercely!💜💜💜**********************************************

#MotivationMonday... today, as much as I’d love to say I’m motivated...I’m actually feeling quite ‘blah’! I finished 6th over the weekend amongst some of the most stacked, and beautiful women (inside and out) of the @ifbb_pro_league. So what has me feeling so...???😔😔😔**********************************************. With two back-to-back 6th place finishes I’m feeling discouraged, but not entirely defeated. I have 10 Olympia points on the scoreboard, and only 2-3 competitions left of the season to try and solidify my qualification and earn my spot on the prestigious Olympia stage. Can I do this? Will it be worth the sacrifice? Giving up isn’t in my nature. Backing out isn’t in my DNA. Bad news, setbacks, none of it stops me. I’m fierce...or maybe just stubborn. When life gets tough—I get tougher. Can I do this?! I ask myself again. Usually I’d answer confidently, ‘HELL YES!’, but today...all I’ve got is... ‘I’m going to give it my BEST SHOT.’ If anything has got you down...or you’re feeling a little uncertain about a situation...hang in there...do the best you can, and throw a little faith at it. Thank you for all your support—it’s been tough keeping up with posts and comments as of late, but I’m always full of immense gratitude and appreciation. ALWAYS! 🙏🏽💜 suit: @angelcompetitionbikinis jewels: @all_that_glitters_gems #ifbb #bikini #pro #bikinipro #npc #diva #fitness #fitspo #inspo #fitchick #girlswholift #girlsthatlift #empowerment #empowering #empower #empoweringwomen, #motivationmonday #bebold #dreambig #nevergiveup #olympia2019

Happy #humpday! 🍑🍑🍑**********************************************. I’m finally getting back into the groove of work and life after back to back peak weeks! I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed my time in AZ @dennisjanesclassic. I narrowly missed Top 5, coming in 6th. I received my feedback directly after the show, and I’m already ready to rock and roll, being only 1.5 weeks out from Omaha Pro! 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽 SWIPE to see photos from my elongated weekend in AZ. Hit @rehabburgertherapy with my bikini boo and #wcw @stacymccloud 😍😍😍 post show. Had a fabulous workout the morning after, and took to the road for an 8 hour excursion to the Grand Canyon. I look forward to visiting AZ again. I think I just might make the desert my new home! 🌵💜 😉 Happy Wednesday, loves! Try your best to make it a good one!!!😘😘😘 Suit: @angelcompetitionbikinis jewels: @all_that_glitters_gems tan: @liquidsunrayz #ifbb #bikini #humpday #arizona #omahapro #1.5weeksout #girlswholift #girlsthatlift #fitchick #fitness #fitspo #inspo #empower #empowerment #empoweringwomen #diva #coach #mesheddiva

#1dayout @dennisjanesclassic #Arizona #checkedin ✅ **********************************************. This was a VERY TOUGH PREP! It challenged me in every way possible, but I made it! I won’t get into the details now, but let’s just say, I cried, I wanted to give up...but in those moments you either make an excuse, quit, or get your mind right and come up with a solution. My solution was simple...DIG DEEP...GRIND, and above all...HAVE FAITH and REMEMBER MY DREAM. My amazing support system came through. I haven’t had the chance, time, or energy this week to get back to everyone quite yet, but just know you matter—you make a difference, and I have nothing but gratitude in my heart.💜💜💜I’m stepping on stage tomorrow as lucky #2, IFBB Bikini Pro, Isha B...and that right there is enough to wipe my tears—settle my woes and get excited! 🍀🍀🍀. Here’s to another chance to do what I love, and possibly add a few more Olympia points to my scorecard! No letting up! 🔥🔥🔥. Quick thank you to my sponsors @angelcompetitionbikinis —in all the chaos of this week—I checked the mail right before heading to the airport, and there was a gift. 💝 Here’s one of MANY...TOTE and TANK! Love you guys for taking such good care of me!!! 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽. Alrighty, y’all...feet up and to bed early!!! Prejudging for the pros starts at 11am. I’ll keep you posted!!! 😘😘😘 #IFBB #bikini #npc #fitchick #fitness #fitspo #inspo #empower #empowerment #empoweringwomen #dreambig #bebold #nevergiveup #glutes #diva #angelcompetitionbikinis #dennisjamesclassic #olympia2018

Happy Monday! #5daysout🏆**********************************************. So the @optimumclassic weekend was a blast! Amazing competitors, beautiful stage, incredible judges! I walked away with 4th place. Now, don’t get me wrong—I was happy. I am happy. BUT fourth is the placement that really adds fuel to an already raging passion. 🔥🔥🔥 Fourth says, ‘Stay the course’, but it screams DO MORE! It’s a #motivating placement...you either settle for it or you’re driven to beat it! I’m driven to beat it! I’m excited to see what changes I can make in the next 5 days or so to ensure I rack up a few more points towards Olympia—plus improve my placement. THIS SATURDAY I’ll be in Arizona @dennisjamesclassic ! I absolutely love this sport. I love the @ifbb_pro_league. It’s the best bodybuilding league not only for its prestige, but the caliber of its athletes. We healthily support and challenge one another to strive for greatness! I’m blessed to compete with and stand in the winner’s circle with champions! 👙: @angelcompetitionbikinis 💎: @all_that_glitters_gems #ifbb #bikini #5daysout #fitness #fitspo #inspo #empower #empowerment #empoweringwomen #motivation #motivationmonday #girlswholift #girlsthatlift #dreambig #bebold #faith #olympia2018
