Matty, your talent, kindess and personality are appreciated and I am so very grateful to have you on the #ufeusa team as our official photographer. @naturallygood9 and I are thankful for the wonderful images you have captured and provided, but even more so of your friendship. Can't wait to see what's in store for everyone as the 2019 UFE competative year starts to get underway.

On that note my instafriends, remember on your journey down the path called life you will encounter many people. Some will bring #positivity and others #negativeenergy to your life!
BEWARE! Though they may be well intentioned, these people can have a serious effect on your life, your dreams and your success overall.
Remember you have control over who you choose to allow to be apart of your life. Ask yourself, do you seek out relationships with people like @magicdreamsproductions? Who build you up, help you to live up to your aspirations?! Or do you allow the debby downers to steal your joy, stress you out, and tear you down?
Remember to be cautious in whom you socialize with. When possible, respectfully distance yourself from negative people who try to lower your motivation, or diminish your ambition.
When you do this you will be creating room for the positive, constructive, optimistic people and relationships to come into your life.
Learn to surround yourself with positive people who believe in your dreams, encourage your ideas, support your ambitions, and bring out the best in you.
#ufeshows overrun with #positive people! This is one of the many reasons I will continue to compete with then as long as I have a competitive career. And this is one reason YOU may want to consider giving them a try as well. Details can be found at www.ufeshows.com
We have shows all over the world! Check it out and make #2019myyear

**Sensative & Taboo Topics** To what extremes are you willing to go to achieve or maintain a healthy lifestyle?
I myself, am willing to go pretty far. I don't even know the lengths because I refuse to set that limit.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has taught me many different tools to help me overcome my disordered eating habits. However, at times of stress I have been having issues with night eating!
Daily, when I am consciously aware of my surroundings the adherence to my nutritional plan is rather sound. However, it's at night that I have a problem with shuffling half awake into the kitchen pantry just outside my bedroom door to snack.
I have tried to help nip this in the butt, yet ultimately aside from not buying the foods, which mind you are still healthy foods like nuts, I still wake up in a daze eating! Night eating is challenging because it is so unconscious, but helping your body and mind relax while increasing consciousness of the behavior can help quell it. To help me not be able to access these foods at my weakest moments I have asked the hubby to put a lock on the pantry door to keep critters, i.e. ME, OUT of the pantry at night. I know, I know, a little extreme, but I have tried so many things, this is a way for me to have more control over my behavior. Here are few other tools that help me daily..
1) Eat breakfast! This can help to establish healthy daytime eating patterns to ensure that blood sugar and serotonin levels remain steady throughout the day. Regular eating patterns may look something like a big breakfast, a hearty and nourishing lunch, dinner, and snacks.
2) Before bed, writing in a journal. Write about your day, your fears, anxiety, anger, sadness, joy, excitement, whatever, just write and move your emotions through you. Keep the journal next to your bed in case you wake up in the middle of the night. If you do, write in your journal.
3) Also, a hot 20 minute bath with Epsom salts prior to bed.
4) When you go to sleep at night, turn off all the lights and put down the phone!
5) Put a STOP sign on your fridge or lock your pantry door to prohibit you from having access to the foods.
Is there any tools you use?#ufeusa #ufeshows #cbt

☆ Well, we had our 1st EVER Team Naturally Good Fitness photo shoot yesterday with the amazing Matty Jacobsen of @magicdreamsproductions ☆ This shoot will mark the official start of the compeition season for all of us. Myself included as I have decided to continue to compete this year. Though I am not officially "prepping" my number one goal in pursuing this lifestyle was to make it just that, a lifestyle. Not just a time of year for eating clean and training hard, but EVERYDAY of my life! And in all honesty I still struggle with this area. Being in a prep is easier for me, then not! I hope to continue to learn how to hold myself accountable for my health in 2019 ☆ Looking back I realize I have yet to learn what I would like too to continue to be an asset to my clients, UFE and myself/my future. I feel honored to blessed to be standing here in this picture with these wonderful people.
☆ They inspire me daily to continue to be the example I hope to be, to represent the change I hope to make not only permanently in my own life, but also in the lives of others I my encounter on this journey. ☆ I may have placed 1st a couple times, and decided to start coaching others in this sport, fitness and nutrition, but that certainly DOESN'T make a professional or expert. Though I currently hold the Championship title I know this makes me no better than anyone I work with or compete next too. ☆ I will promise you though, I will relentlessly work to learn to be the best person I can be. I will continue to push hard, admit when I am wrong, learn from my mistakes, humble myself, dig for a deeper understanding on how to be of use for God and his will in my life. ☆ So here we are, each of us in raw, un-photo shopped, off seasoned, full blown improvement season, a little fuller bodies. I think each of us made a statement as to the dissatisfaction we had with our bodies. ☆ My goal in doing this shoot was to show just how strong/beautiful we are at all stages, everyday, not just on stage. And show honestly the different stages competitors and as fitness lovers go through. Perfection is impossible, improving is what we all should be aiming for as bodybuilders. #ufeusa #ufeshows

Thank you @muscledazzle for the wonderful spot light. I find it astonishing how you constantly buildup your clients and competitors. Your encouragement, phenomenal products, and business ethics are what make your company stand out amoung so many! I look forward to seeing what we can bring to the #ufeworldchampionship2019 stage (@get_repost)

♡ Every year on this special day people honor their love for one another by spending time together, sending flowers or chocolates and sharing Valentine’s messages of love. ♡ I hope not only today, but always you know how deep my love is for you, and continues to go everyday. I never knew a love like you, and still to this day you surprise me and each day I fall more in love with you. ♡ Guess to have a successful marriage, it requires us falling in love many times, with the same person, in various seasons of life. Just know, I know, that many search the world over endlessly to find what I have in you. Thank you for being my bestie, my husband and my partner in this journey called life. I LOVE YOU @naturallygood9

#wisdomwednesday ♡ In my #bodybuilding journey I have learned to do preps in multiple ways. Coming from disordered behavior already, bodybuilding FORCED me to address learning how to deal with nutrition in a healthy manner, not risking my future health for a stage length body. I still have so much to learn and am pretty sure the #learningprocessneverends
A topic I have really sought to learn more since hitting my 30's & then having my bilateral surgery was reducing the inflammation in my body. ♡ One important element in controlling inflammation is ensuring a proper ratio of omega-6 fatty acids, which are pro-inflammatory, to omega-3 fatty acids, which are anti-inflammatory. Because these fatty acids fight each other for a place within the cells, the goal is to reach a ratio as close to 1:1 as possible so inflammation levels can be regulated. Research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition hypothesizes that hunter-gatherers were at a ratio of 4:1 or even 3:1, whereas modern society tends to trend at a 25:1 ratio. ♡ So I introduced you to, Udos oil, an undamaged source of polyunsaturated omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids (or EFAs) and monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acids, which are all excellent sources of energy, fat-soluble vitamins and other key nutrients, and are important components of all membranes of the trillions of cells in the body. ♡ EFAs are responsible for vital biological functions such as cell growth and division, cell-to-cell communication, gene expression, eicosanoid hormone production, and many more. The body can make almost all the fatty acids it needs from other nutrients but lacks the enzymes required to synthesize either omega-3 or omega-6 essential fatty acids and therefore must obtain them directly from the diet, hence the name ‘essential’. ♡ What foods have you found that you enjoy, that help you reduce inflammation in your body?

***I do not own the rights to this dope mix, @adriefitaftertwins*** Some of you may not know, but she is a PHENOMENAL DJ- one of the best in the Chitown!
I rock out to her mixes every week for a workout or 5, lol.

Here you'll find another take on the plank wall walk. It's a great core and shoulder burn and keeps your routine interesting. It's a little more advanced so make sure your shoulders are warm as well. Here the video is sped up, but the goal is to try to hold on the wall, one full exhale.
When you're doing isometric exercises, in which your muscles are not lengthened or contracted but instead simply held in one position, it may be tempting to hold your breath -- but holding your breath during exercise is never a good idea. 
Take a long, deep inhalation that lasts several seconds.

Put your body into the isometric exercise position. For abdominal exercises that involve isometrics, that may include lying on the floor in the "up" portion of a situp-type motion, or getting onto the floor in a face-down plank position. As you move into the isometric position, exhale long and slow through your teeth, or with pursed lips -- whatever feels comfortable to you. When you're doing weight-bearing exercises that involve movement, fitness experts typically recommend you exhale during the actual lifting motion. It's a little different for isometric exercise, since you're holding a position as opposed to lifting. Breathing through the mouth is not advised for regular breathing, but during lifting or exercise, it helps you get more air.

Hold the isometric position as long as you can. When you've exhaled all of your air, inhale in a slow, controlled manner. And return to the starting position making sure to not shift or twist in the hips.

Our first real fitness shoot with a real professional fitness photographer.
We did this shoot for our 10 year wedding Anniversary! My how time flies. And since this shot, I have had the pleasure of becoming close friends with and shot with this phenomenally talented human. Thank you Don, for being such wonderful addition to our lives! #Repost @bersanophotography (@get_repost)

ADAPTOGENS & SUPERFOODS
A few products I take that have helped me be healthier mentally, physically and emotionally.
Bladderwrack algae- contains varying amounts of iodine, which is used to prevent or treat some thyroid disorders. Also contains algin, which can act as a laxative to help the stool pass through the bowels. Only take this when I feel the need.
Spirulina algae- spirulina is said to help with the following health problems: attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, cancer, fatigue, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, and viral infections.
Other benefits also include weight loss, increased energy, and stimulation of the immune system.
Maca root- this adaptogen contains many chemicals including fatty & amino acids. Known to help with female hormonal balance, menopause and female fertility. It is also a natural immune booster.
Lions Mane- Lion's mane mushrooms are white, globe-shaped fungi that have long, shaggy spines. People can eat them or take them in the form of supplements, i.e. a powder here. Some research suggests that they may offer a range of health benefits, including reduced inflammation and improved cognitive and heart health.
Ashwagandha extract- used as an "adaptogen" to help the body cope with daily stress, and as a general tonic. It contains chemicals that might help calm the brain, reduce swelling (inflammation), lower blood pressure, and alter the immune system.
I have found one of the best things I have done for my health is acquiring an education on natural ways to heal the body. Since doing this I have needed less medication, seen better results in my life in many areas, and now understand more each day about what I put in my body. So keep learning my friends because #knowledgeisthenewmoney
Get you some! 💪

You know, the past year has been amazing and so many unexpected opportunities have come my way so I won't position this as a Negative but one unfortunate thing as a page grows is you tend to miss alot on feed. So I do my best to go thru pictures and visit the pages of those who like what I post. In doing that today I stumbled on a rare individual. Her name is @kelly_s_good. She is a UFE pro and one look at her physique and u can c why. Complete balance and feminine muscle and beauty. Yet when someone takes a stage u never get the full story. Here is a woman enduring insane levels of pain in her feet. Suffering deformity. Dealing with injections hard to watch that didn't help. Eventually needing surgery. On both feet. Most competitors hate cardio. This woman had to learn to WALK AGAIN. Yet somehow dug deep and said IM A COMPETITOR. ITS WHAT I DO. and prepped for ANOTHER show. It blows me away to see women like this come back from what most never could. And let me add, it is also rare in this industry to see a woman who could no doubt be successful as a fit model yet also has a natural beauty that could transcend into mainstream. I have to say its refreshing to see a woman like this who has the physique, has the discipline, has the beauty yet stays EXCEPTIONALLY humble. Beyond thankful for my honest comments on her page. There are thousands of beautiful women online. Here is one who is equally inspiring with morals full intact. Looking for motivation? maybe a blueprint? or even a reason to kick your ass in gear? follow UFE PRO @kelly_s_good. @ufeusa @ufeshows #ufe #ufeworldchampionships #ufeeuropeanchampionships #fitandfirm #fitnessmodel #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnessgirl #fitnessnation #fitnessindustry #fitnessinspiration #feet #bursitis #footsurgery #comeback #beinspired #inspiration #inspire #bodypositive #bodybuildingdotcom #fitnesscompet

**Music by XXXTENTACION- whoa (mind in awe)**
TEMPO TRAINING (resistance)= Time Under Tension
Alot of people are familiar with the basic components of a strength-training program, like sets, reps, rest periods, exercise selection, how many days per week you train, etc.
But to produce great results, a program the incorporates time under tension is highly suggested.
There are many reasons to utilize TUT/Tempo training. Here is just a few:
• Improved body awareness.
• Improved control of lifts.
• Development of connective tissue strength.
• Improved stability.
• Focus on muscular elements versus tendinous elements (a slow, controlled motion is going to place more stress on the muscles, whereas a bouncy or ballistic motion will place more stress on the tendons, etc.).
There are four numbers that constitute the tempo of tempo of an exercise, so it may look something like this: 3-1-1-1
- 1st number (3) is the eccentric, lowering or negative part of the contraction. - 2nd number (1) denotes any pause at the stretched or bottom position of the contraction.
- 3rd number (1) is the concentric, lifting or positive part of the contraction.
- 4th number (1) denotes any pause in the top of the lift, of full contracted position.
In general, tension equals muscle growth. So try to slow down in general, get rid of the useless pauses, add some stretch emphasis where appropriate, squeeze hard and hold on peak contraction exercises and adjust your concentric and eccentric speeds to eliminate cheating and momentum. You'll add new life to your stale old routines and see your muscle growth explode to new heights!

A huge lesson I learned since getting into bodybuilding was that the difference between whom we want to be, and who we are, is in we choose to do in those seemingly unimportant decisions. In order to succeed in anything and be truly good at it, improve it, and constantly growing in it, you must always be working on it. To make judgment calls in these moments that are for where we potentially could be, and live by these decisions as best we can, every day, not just when we stand to gain something from it. Your yes should be your yes, and your no your no, and you follow through on these words because you said you would. And then, if we fail, we stand to learn from that life lesson. Because unfortunately life lessons are repeated until they are learned from. #wisdomwednesday
Stay warm out there guys, but stay active. And God bless! #ufeusa #picoftheday #lifelessons #ufeshows #profitnessmodel #2timereigningchamp #neverquit #impromentseason #nosurrender
