Breakfast & coffee with husband.
You know— allgutsnotglory


Started my day with chest and shoulders. Drank a carb heavy intra-workout shake and ate my first “real egg” in probably 20 years. Following coaches nutrition orders, regardless of how “out of my comfort zone” it may feel. 
That’s right- I said coach… More on that later.

The past few days have been pretty rough for me- more mentally than physically, but as we all know, when our mind isn’t quite right, we tend to feel like shit. So yeah, body image has been in the dumps. I’ve been unable to control my feelings, both good and bad. I’ve acted irrationally, cried, screamed, hated on myself, and treated both me and others with less respect than deserved. 
But I move on.
Today is new. Despite total lack of sleep, I crushed my lats & traps. Enjoyed a hot cup of coffee and breakfast with the husband. Got an oil change. Finished Easter shopping. Cleaned baby toys out of the basement. And monumental for me… Today I start a new eating plan. I’m anxious. I’m scared. But I’m trusting that my body will respond and I’ll be able to make some gains before the June show.
Thankful for fresh starts.

I’m sitting in the sun watching Superman and his little sister chase bubbles, while Matt ( allgutsnotglory) cuts the grass for the first time this spring. 
Thankful for some warmth and family.

Throwback + Sibling Day combined.

My sister, Ashley, is 4 years younger than me. We weren’t always super close as kids, but now I love her to pieces…. She’s a great inspiration for me and always there to listen and give me great advice. Plus, she’s coming home this weekend!! YIPPEEE!

1. This shirt. 
2. Repping out 60 wide-grip pull-ups will slaughter the rest of your back workout. But still…60. 
3. Allergies are kickin my Aiden’s butt— Matt and I were giving the poor guy breathing treatments at 2 am. 
4. To the guy at the gym who said that I should “get a new hobby” *chucklechuckle*… DID U NOT READ THE SHIRT??? 
Happy Monday.

Sunday thoughts over coffee. 
I need to get things in order. 

My life is amazing. I need to live everyday with this in mind. 

Live with patience, kindness, and love. With a side of being a badass…..

For about 20 minutes last night, I had an internal struggle over my nutrition intake. I went over my “clev-prescribed” macros and I was having a moment… A moment where I let all self-confidence go out the window and images of unrealistic Sabrina came flooding through. I forced myself to go to sleep, only to have dreams about losing teeth—aka—losing control over something in your life. This is a recurring dream theme for me, so yeah, I’ve done some research. 

But, I got up, felt energized and told myself that if I fuckin’ want to be at the top of my figure class, I’ve got to buck up and deal with a few extra calories. So I hit shoulders as hard as I could.  

lift heavy. trust the process.

-	I used a new pre-workout this morning: White Flood. Seemed to do the trick. 
-	Lunged my life away this morning as well. Let’s hope for some butt doms tomorrow…
-	For dinner last night, I made the kids ‘homemade pizza’- just crescent rolls in small circles with various toppings. I didn’t have any tomato sauce, so I used ketchup (hah)…you would’ve thought I gave them a million dollars. They were loving every second. So innocent and simple. I hope that never ends. 
-	I’ve been getting 210+ grams of protein for almost a week now. I’m really hoping to pack on some muscle.
-	I emailed the head judge from my competition to get some feedback. His comments were: need rounder shoulders and posing needs work. This is all stuff I knew, so I’m ok with the commentary. 
-	Things I need: warm/hot weather, a super intense nap, rounder shoulders, an oil change, more grape tomatoes, & to bake. Yep, I need to bake. What’s on your wish list today???

The past three days have been wearing on me. I really don’t want to complain, but I’m tired. Work is kicking my tail. I’m feeling pulled in a lot of directions. 

Just a few minutes ago, the teacher’s secretary delivers this to me…my husband is too good to me!
