Inspired. Wow, where to start?
My goal in life has always been to help people; it is my passion, my calling, my virtue, my blessing and my curse. I will burn myself to the ground trying to light the path for others, and just when I thought that’s what I had done with this whole contest prep, I am uplifted by so many.
It’s been a very humbling process to be so self-absorbed, and that is only…
We’re in the home stretch – exactly 2.5 weeks ’til competition time! I couldn’t be more relieved. To be honest this has probably been one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done, not because I can’t eat the foods I want (I’m pretty creative in the kitchen), but mainly because I’m so tired of constantly judging myself…and maybe I need a beer…or three.
In a matter of 3 years I’ve gone from ED…
I can’t wait to start counting MY macros…my creativity in the kitchen is bursting day in & day out. My baking skills have inspired me to help others create healthy alternatives.

Before I jump right in to today’s RANT: I hope you like the new look, and I added my social media to the right side – for those interested. I wanted to give my blog a more personal touch as I’m getting closer to the show (3.5 weeks), and I have a lot of big things happening in my life…so stay tuned!
So here I go…again. The thing about the fitness industry is that everyone is a critic, but…
I’m under the impression that there are three types of people in this world: Competitive and Self-Propelled, and as with everything else, a little bit of grey area. After reading a recent Facebook post from a friend and fellow athlete, I’ve been inspired to delve into the topic full force.
People of a competitive nature, I find, are the ones’s driven by outside forces. They are the…

Lots to update, lots to share, and frankly, it’s 7:45am and I’m on my 2nd cup of coffee, so I’m ready to write.
We came, we saw, we conquered…in our own little way. Carlos and I ended up both placing third in our respective categories for the Times Best of Acadiana, which is pretty damn good if you ask me. Nobody at work cared, but I guess if…
I feel like I’m always writing about trials, or emotional breakdowns, or my pangs of competition, but apparently that’s…normal?
I took a few days off of life to visit family and friends “back home,” and sort of recenter my focus. I know I say that a lot, but is it important to stay centered? The world itself is so chaotic; people are always pushing and pulling you in different directions, while…

This post has been a long time coming, but as with any great decision, it has been backed by great doubt. Long story short: we back in this bitch! How could I let 6 months of (not so) hard work go down the drain? This has been my dream for 4 years, and I shouldn’t let one small hiccup ruin that again.
First competition on the books…
