It’s a Numbers game…and I love math!

It’s peak week.  The Arnold is 6 days away and I’m in full peak week mode.  For those that don’t know the game…this is the week that bodybuilders dial in regarding training and nutrition right before a competition.  Don’t do peak week right and all your hard work will not show on stage.  It is very important to hit set macros (carbs, fats, and proteins) right on.  Water is crucial.  And workouts key.  By this time in the game, your diet will make or break you.  I LOVE peak week.  Getting super excited to compete against the best amateurs in the world.  I have checked out some of the competition, when I say best in the world, it’s not an exaggeration.  About to cook my next meal!  Good times to all out there, prepping, building, or just enjoying the ride.

Asking for Help…

People are our greatest resource.  Don’t be afraid to ask for help.  Most of us in the bodybuilding/fitness world LOVE to share our knowledge and experience.  I have a close friend that recently asked me to help her, and I can’t tell you how happy it made me.  Honestly, I had been waiting for her to ask, or secretly hoping that she would.  Now we are working together, and I am very excited for her.  Wednesday we met at the gym, went over her goals for the week, and she did her first upper body workout.  I was so proud of her, after my initial workout with her…she asked for more exercises.  Great things are going to happen for this person, because her heart is open.

I am helping out another friend this evening with her posing.  Very excited!

In this world, filled with people, it is very easy to feel alone.  But you don’t have to, we can be there for each other, help each other, support each other, encourage each other.  Sometimes directly, sometimes indirectly.  So don’t be afraid to ask for help…

Spread the love.  xo.

FAILURE

Don’t ever quit. Don’t ever stop believing that you are stronger, faster, crazier. Don’t ever let the victories that aren’t yours, keep you from achieving your own. When life tells you this is not day, use that disappointment to MAKE THE NEXT ONE YOURS!
