The madness is over! We've finally finished installing all of the production shows here on the #CarnivalSplendor, and I can finally start getting back into a workout routine!
If you've been following me for a while, you've probably seen a shift in the types of things I post - while fitness is still a major part of my life, the other major part is my professional life as a performer. In my eyes, the two are actually closely intertwined, and I want to share more of both sides with all of you! I'm looking forward to sharing more of my life on board, I hope you'll enjoy!

Been working harddd for the money these past two weeks - but I'm still alive! Looking forward to getting into a settled routine again (gym, diet, sleep, etc), but for now just checking in to say hello! Hope everyone has a great Tuesday ✨


When your friends lift you up literally and figuratively 🖤 #tbt

How do you handle set backs?
For some, a set back can lead to total failure. They aren't problem solvers, and therefore can't figure out any other way to achieve their goal if their initial plan goes awry. They give up.
For others, it's something to overcome. It's seen as a way to self-improvement, and makes them stronger in the end.
Today I had a major set back... my SI injury from February was aggravated again (doing the stupidest tiny thing, go figure 😣). The shows that I'm doing this contract require full use of my back - backbends, layouts, kicks, splats to the floor... you name it. We have 9 days before we leave for almost 7 months. I don't have TIME to let this set me back... No excuses - you can't just "do work" when things are going well. The real work is when things get hard.


Kickin' It.
Taking a well-earned rest day from the gym today. As much as I want to achieve my physical goals, I know it's important to allow myself time for recovery. With hectic schedules and constant physical exertion at work, it's too easy to run myself into the ground and risk injury. Don't forget to give yourself a break when you need one, so you can come back stronger!

Glutes and abs circuits and cardio for last night's workout! Changing up my workout style for the time being to keep myself from totally dying in rehearsals, and circuits allow me to get in an effective workout without spending hours in the gym. Give these a try!

Glute Circuit
•Sumo Deadlifts - 12 reps
•Weighted Curtsey Lunges - 10 reps per leg
•Stiff-Legged Deadlifts - 12 reps (keep constant tension in hamstrings)
•Weighted Glute Bridges - 20 reps

Abs Circuit
•Cable Crunches - 15 reps
•Leg Raises - 10 reps (lift hips at the top of the movement)
•Russian Twists w/ Medicine Ball - 12 reps

Do one circuit of glutes straight into one circuit of abs, then rest - 3x's through. Followed by 30 mins on the cross trainer. Quick and effective!


But when you're gone, who remembers your name? Who keeps your flame? 🔥


Killing Time: Caught in the Act

Today's practice in gratitude - being thankful for small blessings. The extent of #HurricaneIrma's damage to my parents' home was minimal... a few lost shingles and some debris in the pool. The power is still out, but compared to the flooding and damage I've seen even just in other parts of Florida has me feeling entirely grateful. It could always be so much worse. The fact that my biggest complaint is a bit of boredom and being a little sweaty from no AC says it all. We were fortunate.


There is a lot of chaos happening today. For many, today's significance may be the last thing on their mind as they try to rebuild their homes and lives. But if you get a minute... stop. Take a moment to remember those that sacrificed everything on this day 16 years ago. Today is a hard day - but you're still here to live it.

Hey everyone - just a little update! It's been a stressful and tiring day... I made the decision to leave southern Florida and rehearsals until after #HurricaneIrma has passed. Where we're being housed isn't in the mandatory evacuation zone (although it's only minutes away), but I didn't want to risk the *very good* chance of losing power and not having a way to keep my insulin cold, especially if power goes out for more than a day or two. Hopefully we'll be able to resume rehearsals sooner rather than later.
Until then, I'll probably be pretty quiet on here, as fitness and life in general will be on a hiatus. To my fellow Floridians, please stay safe! And to those who have sent well-wishes, thank you!
