Happy Thursday babes! This morning I woke up feeling lean. Today I am going to clean up my diet (no more dairy) and I am going to start tracking my macros again. I’m not sure what my weight is currently but I’m assuming that I am around 126. My scale decided to stop working on me and I’m waiting for the new one to arrive tomorrow. I have back day tonight and 30 minutes of cardio. What are y’all training today?! .

Summertime is always the best of what might be. I don’t know about you guys but my relationships (friendships, family relationships...etc) are so much stronger during the summer months. Is this because I am happier when I’m outside doing the things that I love or is it because we aren’t stuck inside together with nothing to do? These are the things that I will randomly think about when laying in bed at night. Although I don’t know the answers I know that I wish summer could last all year. ❤️

Absolutely crushed shoulders tonight and did 30 mins of cardio! I’m debating on doing an August show and am leaning towards doing it. I’m ready to be back on a strict meal plan. I can never decide on what to eat anymore. 😅 I hope you all had a great Monday!! .

These last three years have flown by. I decided to start weightlifting on May 19th 2015 and haven’t looked back. I developed a love for the gym and the healthy lifestyle that I quickly developed. I started working out and eating clean 6 weeks postpartum. I hadn’t had any physical activity in a few years and didn’t really know what to expect. The first few months were rough as hell. I dreaded going to the gym and completely hated my diet. After about 6 months I became completely obsessed with working out. I started going to the gym 6 days a week for 2-2.5 hours a day. I was constantly watching YouTube videos and reading up on exercises and diets. Fast forward to January of 2018 and I had decided to finally compete so I hired a coach and accomplished that goal. I also completed the NASM personal training certificate in January and I might start training in the next few weeks at a gym in Cedar Rapids. I would have never imagined that my life would have changed the way it has because of that initial decision to get a gym membership 3 years ago. I have met a lot of amazing people and have developed lifelong friendships during this journey. I have found a part of myself that I didn’t know was in there and I have found a passion for something that I absolutely love. .

Almost 3 years ago I started this crazy fitness journey in hopes that I would someday step on stage. I was able to reach that goal a few weeks ago and I cannot wait to do it again in the future with an even better physique. Happy #humpday friends!! .

I love this little boy. ❤️ He is growing up so fast and is becoming such a sweetheart. Kai climbed into my lap this morning and looked up at me with the sweetest face and told me that he loved me. He seems to notice when I’m feeling sad and always finds ways to make me smile. Motherhood isn’t always pretty but moments like this make it all worth it. .

She’s changed. You can see it in her eyes, feel it in her touch, and hear it in her tone. She’s not the same and she’s never coming back. .

Happy Sunday friends. I hope you all have a great day and to all of you mommas our there y’all are amazing! .

It’s one week post show and I’m still sitting at the same weight and I feel more lean than ever. My training has been awful this week with an impromptu 9 hour road trip but I’m back in Iowa and ready to get back to it. I’m really missing the weather down south now that I’m back and it’s all rainy and cold here. I hope y’all have a great Saturday!!

I am feeling really good this week. The extra food has been awesome but I’m sick of it and ready to get back on track with my diet. It’s amazing the way that healthy food makes you feel compared to processed junk. My workouts have been killer this week. My body is so sore but it feels great. I just finished cardio and now I’m going to do homework and work on monthly workout plans for a few clients. Have a great rest of your night! .

Yesterday was a day that I have been anticipating for 3 years now. The experience itself was amazing. I had so much fun and even though I didn’t place I did way better than I had expected. I am really excited to see what the next prep will bring. I loved being able to see these two lovely ladies place last night and being able to bond this weekend. 😊 I also want to say thank you to @lionel_bassett for being an amazing coach. I wouldn’t have gotten on that stage without your guidance! .

Today is the day that we leave for Chicago. I can’t believe that show day is tomorrow already. These last 6 weeks have flown by and I am so grateful that @lionel_bassett suggested that we do this show. I woke up this morning with a new low weight of 123 which puts me at a total loss of 20 pounds since the beginning of January. I am excited to see what we do after this show! I am so thankful that I’ve had @nandajo_ by my side through this experience. We have built an amazing friendship that will last a lifetime. ❤️ .
.
Here is a transformation from a few weeks before I started prep and now. I’ve lost almost three inches in my waist and 14 pounds in 6 weeks. .

Yesterday morning I woke up with a cold. Of course out of all of the weeks that I could get sick I get sick on peak week. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I am still hitting the gym even though I feel like death in the mornings. I’m just hoping that I can taste these cheat meals that are going down Saturday night and Sunday! 😅 On a positive note I wake up feeling more and more lean every day. I’m getting so excited to compete with @nandajo_  and @ashleymwebster Saturday! It’s going to be so much fun!! I hope y’all have a great hump day! .

I am 9 pages down on my 10 page final and headed to the gym for my second cardio session for the day! Peak week is here and I am ready to conquer whatever lies ahead in the final days leading up to my competition. Two months ago I felt so lost and anxious about the future. In the last few weeks everything has flipped. I feel more fulfilled than I have in a long time. I’m living my best life and building some amazing relationships with some awesome people. I now have a support system that I only dreamt about having and no matter what the outcome is on Saturday I’m so happy that I chose to embark on this journey. I have a great coach @lionel_bassett who puts up with all of my weird questions and an amazing friend @nandajo_ who is competing with me Saturday and I couldn’t be more excited.
.
I also definitely posed barefoot today so that would be why I’m not wearing shoes. 🙈 I know someone will ask if I don’t mention it. 😂 .

Happy Wednesday Friends! I am halfway through finals week and 1.5 weeks away from show day. My workouts are still going well and I still feel pretty energized (besides the lack of sleep I’ve been getting because my cat meows for hours every night). I’m extremely excited to eat after the show. I’ve been looking at food for hours every day anticipating the day. I also oddly feel like I want to jump right back into a clean diet a few days after my show. I’m always so mixed emotions about everything. 😂 I do know that I’m going to smash an entire tube of cinnamon rolls, a buffalo chicken pizza, and beer battered chicken strips when I get back home after my show. 🤤 .

I’m currently counting down the days until my first show! I’ve been hitting the gym seven days a week and sticking to my diet for once. Tonight I did 65 minutes of cardio to make up for this morning. With my eyelash extensions I wasn’t able to workout for 24 hours so I had to skip my fasted cardio this morning. Then I did 5 more minutes because I’m crazy and felt like doing the cool down that the treadmill gives you after 60 mins of cardio. So far I am still feeling great! I’m more energetic than normal and I’m not really as hungry as I was a week ago so that’s always good! My sleep has improved 100% over the last week and I haven’t been struggling as much to get up at 6am! Less than 3 weeks until show day!!

Getting closer and closer to show day!! I went to Rock Island to train yesterday and hung out with @nandajo_ for a few hours in Iowa City after our quad workout. It’s getting so close to show day and it’s about to be a crazy 3 weeks. I have finals coming up in 2 weeks and have a 10-15 research page paper that I really need to get started on. 🙈 My new classes will start that following Monday and then that Saturday is show day. .
.
On the agenda for today is fasted cardio this morning, then homework, meal prep, and more cardio and some yoga tonight! Have a great Sunday guys!!
