Almost two weeks ago, I stepped on stage in Pittsburgh for #mastersnationals. The goal was to be able to hold my own and not get lost in the crowd. I am happy say that I was able to do that with 7th place in Figure Class E. I had not stepped on the national stage since 2013 when I decided to go to Chicago, meet my pen pal @geniesjourney, eat Giordano's, oh..and put on my bedazzled suit. • • • • • There were so many things that were different this prep than the last one, including my mindset, my coach, the folks in my boat (aka my support system) and it shows in this comparison picture. It may sound cheesy but to me, being successful in this sport is looking better than the last time I stepped on stage. I know that there is still more work to be done and am excited about what lies ahead! #BAMMER #bebetterthanyesterday #BeYourOwnSuperhero #visualizeandwin #thoughtsbecomethings #championmindset #YouDontTraintoLose #bestself #transformationtuesday #getallthegains #figurecompetitor #Fitfluential #ffcheckin #yallmightbesleepingonme #waitonit #YearoftheBadass #bedazzledsuitsandstripperheels

Did any of you watch the show "Empire"?
I didn't but had been hearing about how great the
music from the show was.
I liked what I heard so much that I
ended up buying the soundtrack!
Right now, this is my favorite song and
it's currently on repeat.
Let me know what you think!

This isn't a new release but in case you forgot about it,
let me reintroduce you!
This song came on last week during one of my
workouts and I almost lost my mind. #realtalk
Yes, I stopped what I was doing so I could
do a booty shake.
To my fellow gym members that witnessed it....you're welcome.
To those of you who missed it....sucks to be you.... ;)

Cue the Pharrell Williams song!
*actually please don't because that song grates on my nerves now - thanks local radio stations for overplaying it!
Did y'all know that last Friday was International Day of Happiness? There was a Do Happy Today event on the plaza that is front of the library that I work at. The coordinator of the event asked for volunteers to help "sprinkle happiness" before and during the event. What is "sprinkling happiness"? It was as simple as this!
I have to be honest when I say there have been times in my life recently where I may not have been consciously taking the time to be happy, be present in the moment, be calm, etc. I have been on auto-pilot and that is not good!
I am going to diligently work on having more moments like these.
Here's to being carefree - present - grateful - happy!

Shaggy is back!
Wait...was he ever really gone?
I don't know the answer to that question but
I do know that when this song came on iTunes Radio,
(yes, I'm obsessed with iTunes Radio!)
I started shaking my ass...
After hearing that song, I wanted
to go to the reggae bar that's here in town,
dance, drink, and eat some jerk chicken in the parking lot.
Enjoy the song and as always,
if you have any recommendations please send them to me!
