Jr USA 2014 – My First National Show

image

My love affair with bodybuilding only gets more intense with each competition. I placed 3rd at my first national show, and I couldn’t be happier. With each day that has passed, I long to lift heavy, eat healthy, and grace the stage again. Nothing is more important than the support and love I receive each and everyday from my husband…who is the constant fire behind my goals.  image

I am in constant pursuit to make him proud.  After it is all said and done, as long as I am #1 in his eyes, I am a winner.

This is who he sees when he looks at me…imageimage     image

I love him more than words can describe. He works long and hard to support my dreams.  He takes me to the beach because he knows  the soothing sounds of the water brings me peace. He helps me to be a better person, not just a better bodybuilder.

If you want to grow…bigger muscles and a bigger heart, surround yourself with love. Happy lifting.

Making New Friends…

Since I started competing in the NPC, there have been many benefits.  But one that stands out is the friends that I have made.  It is so refreshing to meet and connect with like minded people.  I love to hear the story of their journey; what led them to the stage, what keeps them motivated, and just who they are as a person.  Inspiration is found in many ways, and all of these women, who I know follow on Instagram and Facebook, are very inspiring to me.  The advise and encouragement they provide warms my heart…no cat fights here.  Just beautiful women with goals, great physiques, and big hearts.
