Where the Clever Things Are

Eating breakfast without 30 twelve year olds staring at you.
Using real dishes instead of plastic ones.  
The food is actually hot and not just pulled out of the fridge. 

Yes, it’s the little things that matter when you have a day off!

It’s the Monday after a weekend that didn’t feel like a weekend… Ugh. Too much working and stressing…not enough resting. 
But- in general, things are positive. At least that’s what I’m telling myself. 

I just left a sobbing 3 year old at school and I’m late for a 7:30 meeting…. And it’s picture day. 
Am I even professional?

Those who are new to my blog, don’t know too much about my eating disorder past. But I’ve come a long way from the endless hours of cardio, starving, binging and purging, etc…

I hate the word “bulk” because of the connotation that comes behind it. But this off season, I’ve been committed to put on CLEAN mass in hopes of bringing a better package to the stage. 

Today officially marks a 10 POUND weight gain- top pic was taken the morning of my show, June 28… And then today.

With a lot of pain in my upper body and  the need for more recovery days b/w workouts, I’m finding time to focus on my legs this off season. While I know I’m lacking in my arms and shoulders, I can’t just push through injuries.

I’m competitive. I hate when things aren’t just how I want them to be. I HATE BEING INJURED. BUT- I can guarantee, NO ONE will beat my legs next competition season.

Come on man…

In our school district, today is the deadline in which any 7th grade student who is not up to date with their vaccinations will be sent home from school and not able to return until immunizations are complete.

I’ve already had 2 kids leave my first period class….. Seriously parents? Get with the program.

I honestly don’t remember the last workout I had withOUT pain somewhere in my body. While this sucks a lot, im learning to take care of my body on the non-training days and I’m being forced to be smart and safe with each set and rep. I really feel that I’m coming out of things and headed towards the right direction. Today’s shoulder pump was pretty crucial. Just trying’ to get big here… #offseason #no6packinsight #warriorwithin

Just had to get out a knot and then tie the drawstring for one of my 6th grade male students. What is my life?

Caffeine injection please.

Why do I hustle like I do?? 
Because I see what the body can achieve. 
March 2013 vs September 2014

And on that note- message me if you’re interested in online nutrition or training. I’m ready to go.

It’s been a much needed week away from tumblr. My brain is still not quite in the right place BUT I’m coming back slowly.

I’m also trying a new strategy…if I wear DLB’s clothes, maybe I’ll grow DLB delts?
