A month ago my friend and I sat down after watching The Secret and created Goal Boards. They are a spin off vision boards where we literally wrote down all the things we wanted to accomplish. We wrote
Isn't it funny how women tend to over analyze everything in circles, come up with no conclusion and never get tired of talking about it the same thing? It drives me crazy that I take part in this ridiculous
Do not dwell in the past.
Do no dream of the future.
Concentrate the mind on the present moment.
How many of us are guilty of this? We spend our days dwelling on our pasts and pinpointing our failures, praying for a better future and forget to put our energy into the now. I’ve been guilty of that practically everyday of my life. And I’m sure part of my reason for being MIA on the blog is because I’ve spent so much time “reflecting” on my past; pre competiton body, body on stage, diet before the show and how I’ve rebounded. I’ve struggled regaining my “will power”, a word in which I despise, but in turn have realized how important it is to be present in my now as oppose to berating myself for what I use to be like and what I am now.
With that said I am back my friends. I’m inspired, healthy, strong as shit in the gym and learning to balance my life with all the things that are important to me. Competing is something I miss everyday and I’m constantly itching to prep. And I can’t wait for the day I do but that day is not today. My today is about family, friends, and lifting. Lifting will never leave me as I’m a working badass in progress. Haha.
So stay tuned Squirrelfriends as I bring you life lessons from the gym!

It’s two weeks into the new year and you’re probably struggling to keep that New Year Fit Resolution. Hell, you probably just stopped all together and you are back to your old ways. Womp Womp.
I made a promise to myself that for the month of January I would focus on trusting myself and honoring my inner hunger and it is a hell of a lot harder than I thought.
What does it mean to honor your
2014, A new year filled with new hopes and most likely you have made it your resolution again to lose weight.
Let me ask you, how many times have you gone on a diet? How many times have you been convinced
I find it strange that 2013 is coming to an end. 2013 was by far my hardest year and at many times I wish it would have ended. Here we are and now I feel some sort of...sadness.
I'm attached to you,
