Well HELLO yellow!!! Another one in the books- I need a vacation LOL. @antionette.ctl here's your newest addition!!! ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅโœจโšก๏ธโ˜€๏ธ!!! #crystallinibikini #bikinicompetition #competitionsuit #competitionbikini #bikini#bikinicompetitor #bikinicompetition #npcbikini #ngabikini #ocbbikini #wbffbikini #nslbikini #ifpabikini

Watching all the results from #jrnationals has me hella motivated. My passion for training and desire to grow in order to beat last seasons physique is slowly returning. Taking the steps NOW to make sure that this body, mind and soul is in the BEST spot when it comes time to prep again.
Until then I'll continue to post throwbacks here and there cause I miss it so bad but I'm loving the weekly ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿช๐Ÿช habit that I've fallen into this summer ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ #naturalbikini #naturalbikinicompetitor #bikinicompetitor #bikiniprep #girlswholift #ifpabikini #ipebikini #ipebikinipro #nanbf #nanbfbikini #ngabikini #npcbikini #onlinecoach #competitionprep #bikiniprepcoach #offseason #jcdSTRONG

Transformation Tuesday.
Let's talk a little bit about what it took to get from the photo on the left to the photo on the right. What it took for me to bring my absolute BEST to the stage.
It took me 27 weeks of dieting. It took me 18lbs of weight loss. It took some back to back to back weeks where my weight didn't budge and it actually increased, but it took my trust and faith in my coaches knowledge and my own capabilities to get past those tough weeks.
I "missed out" out on food... wedding cake, wine toasts, cheese and cracker appetizers, bridal shower mimosas and margaritas on cindo de mayo. I spent a boozy filled bachelorette party weekend in Chicago stone cold sober. I never once complained. I never once felt sorry for myself. I never once asked to be pitied because I knew that every day, every sacrifice I made would bring me closer to what I KNEW I was capable of achieving. I still attended and ENJOYED almost every social event I was invited to with a smile on my face and a positive attitude, even if it meant bringing bags of food with me or getting up at 4am to get my lift in order to attend in the evening. This wasn't easy but often times the things you really want in life aren't easy to attain.
Prepping a choice. Prepping to bring your BEST is hard and it requires some sacrifice. It requires you to get uncomfortable. It requires you to stick to a routine, but also be flexible and social in order to maintain your sanity. For some it's worth it, for others it isn't and that's okayyyy.

I've only made it to the gym 3x this week, I've slept in, chosen to eat dessert, drink wine and opt for sides of fries instead of side salads.
I'm at the point in my life (at least right now) where I do truly love enjoy training and what it has taught me and the habits it has instilled in me but I'm so, so, so much more relaxed about it. Did I feel a little weird that I only made it to the gym 3x this week? Of course I did, but I made it 6x last week. It's a give and take for me. As much as I WANT to be 101% spot on with my training and "diet" I'm learning to forgive myself when I'm only running at 75%
Mental rests are so important and the frequency you need them is dependent on the individual. It's also important to know when you really need to back off the gas pedal vs. when you're just plain slacking and being lazy. It's taken me years to figure it out and I still haven't mastered this balance but I'm taking it one day at a time.
Happy Friday!

Learning how to train for myself again. Lately I've been distracted during training with thoughts about my wedding, my clients (they rock) or yah know... anything else but actual training.

Spent the last few days taking an unplanned rest day, spending less time on my phone and getting better focusing on one thing at a time (including my lift) to re-ignite my energy in the gym. So far so good.

Throwback Thursday to the conditioning I brought to Worlds last fall ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ
I'm not a big girl by any means. My weakness has always been lack of size especially in my lower half ๐Ÿ˜ญ. On stage last year I sat between 106-108lbs and in my off-season I've naturally fallen and stayed between 112-114lbs (for reference I'm 5'3 and 3/4). My goal for 2018 is to step on stage with this conditioning but weighing in between 108-110lbs. For now I'm gonna keep building and pray that I can fit into my wedding dress in September ๐ŸŒš

Happy leg day ๐ŸŒธ

If you see me in the gym, you will most likely see me flex between every set... even on leg days. Because every day is #flexfriday ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ I hate when people comment on how they hate seeing people flex at themselves in the gym, I mean when is there a better time? Who gives a shit, it means they are admiring the muscle they built with hard work! It doesn't make them self centered but just confident, which they have all the reason in the world to be.. if someone is walking around shirtless, they are confident so let them do them! People are so jealous and hateful and will do anything to make themselves feel better. Why? How does that actually work, cause I never understood... Why not actually put the work in and understand how hard it is and how people feel when they see changes! Even then, keep your judgements to yourself! Rant over, just something that I witness first hand all the time and never ceases to annoy me๐Ÿ˜’ But anyway TGIF! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜œ

Strength & happiness > % fat on my body ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜‹

In my opinion when you "mess up" you have one of two choices. 1.) Beat yourself up, pout and make excuses or 2.) Suck it up, learn from it and carry on.

Last year was the year of the glute and hamstring transformation. The year before it was the year of the delts. This year it's the year of the quads.
I'm by no means an expert when it comes to programming but I've learned a LOT over the last couple of years and I'm continuing to learn errr' day. Rep ranges, tempos, pauses, compound vs. hypertrophy movements, toe angles, rest periods, strategic order of movements, etc. I find the world of bodybuilding and training fascinating. The ability to grow and shape your body is empowering. So cheers to more empowerment from my purple hair to yours. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿฆ„ #naturalbikini #naturalbikinicompetitor #bikinicompetitor #bikiniprep #girlswholift #ifpabikini #ipebikini #ipebikinipro #nanbf #nanbfbikini #ngabikini #npcbikini #onlinecoach #competitionprep #bikiniprepcoach #offseason #quads #jcdSTRONG

Hey friends ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ I've been extra hard on myself lately as to how "behind " I've let my physique get. I think the combination of wedding planning "stress" and reduced strength training and an overall lack of appetite has caused my weight to drop and I've lost a good amount of the muscle that I worked so hard to put on earlier this year. I had visions of how much bigger I'd grow and how much weight I wanted to gain this off season and I've let myself down in that aspect. I know if I want to be competitive in 2018 I can't slack on my off-season growth much longer.

BUT I'm smiling because I KNOW that I have the strength and determination to work hard and earn that muscle back. I KNOW that two months from now when life settles down a bit and the wedding is over I can dedicate myself towards more intense training and more strategic growth. I promise myself that when I get back on stage I will beat my previous self.

I think my least favorite question that I'm always asked is.."how did you get so fit?".. it's the kind of question I think answers itself! I work my f**cking ass off every single time I step in that gym! I'm conscious of what I'm feeding my body and I always make sure it has enough fuel. I also don't listen to others when Im told that I shouldn't lift TOO much, or get TOO big. And my response is always "yah.. No, I'm gonna do what I ENJOY, because I want to aaaaand Ef your opinion, I don't need it." It is so important to listen to yourself and block out the negative voices that keep trying to bring you down! That in itself is a skill that is learned and needs to always be worked on. I myself LOVE being strong and muscular and I push harder, lift more, and grow everyday๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ I will continue to do so until I physically cannot ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ #motivationmonday
