Hey everyone! I am just now getting situated from being back from the Arnold on Sunday :) I wanted to post a few pics from it and also let everyone know that I should have pics and posters up for sale on my site within a month! Sorry sorry..I know it is taking soo long but it will be done!!
Here are a couple candid/unedited pics from my shoots!
I am also making plans once again to head to FL in a few weeks to work with a new company that I am soo excited to be working for. I will post more details as it comes closer :)
At the same time that all of this is going on I have decided to compete again and have started working with someone completely new, something I have never done before, and I am really really excited to see what kind of shape I get in. I am doing this 1000% just for myself as there are so many positive things going on with me right now, this is just something to see what happens BUT regardless I know I will be thrilled with the outcome!!
I hope you all are having an amazing week so far and I will be posting on here more often now that things are getting back to normal…somewhat :)) Have a great night everyone!!!

If you all are in the area or will be attending be sure to come by the Iron Asylum booth and say hi!!! I will be working the booth Friday and Saturday as well as staying very busy with shoots! I can’t wait to shoot with Andrew Nicholson again and LGHFX and a few others are in the works as well!! As usual I will have no time and be crazy busy but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
I am also almost done with getting pictures and posters on here for sale,thank you for being so patient with me. A couple more weeks, once I am back from this trip, and they will be out for anyone who wants them :)
Have a good night everyone, have an amazing start to your week tomorrow and thank you as always for the constant support!!!

They should be on the site and available for sale within the next week, week and a half. I have another surprise but have to wait a little while longer before I can post it but I think you all will be very excited with it!! :)) I know I am!!
It’s now crunch time with me for the Arnold. I am not competing but will be working the expo for Iron Asylum and also have shoots scheduled that I am very excited for!! I will be shooting for and with some amazing people :))
Have a wonderful Sunday night, relax, take it all in, enjoy every minute with your loved ones, friends…make every minute count!!! I know I will :)
Hey everyone! I know it has been a long time coming lol but I will finally be getting some pictures back on my site for sale as well as a couple of posters :) Right now I am in the process of choosing about 5 pics for sale and 2 pics that will be available for posters.
I have another surprise in the works as well but can’t mention any more about it yet :)) but I am sooo siked for it!!! I think you all will be too!!

Thank you all for being so patient with me with all of this and continuing to support me and be the greatest fans and friends ever!

Hey everyone :) I hope that you are all enjoying the holiday season!! I can’t believe Thanksgiving has come and gone and Christmas is right around the corner!! Time is flying sooooo fast it’s insane!!
The next month or so will be nice for me..I will be able to see my family again for the holidays down in Tennessee and be able to spend my parent’s first Christmas in their new home which is absolutely beautiful!! Then once the New Year approaches I am back to shooting like a crazy woman but I love it!! I have some things in the works right now that I will be excited to announce when I can :) and so far have about 3-4 trips planned for the beginning months of 2013!
We all make New Year’s resolutions but I have begun mine early this time :) I am really going to try to enjoy every day more and more, take it all in, breath, appreciate the little things…appreciate everything and be and stay POSITIVE!! I tend to sometimes be so focused or busy and rushed that I forget to just slow down a bit and always be grateful and thankful for what I do have. We all have a tendency (I am no exception) to always want more in life, wish for me, work for more…sometimes you have to just step back and say STOP…love what you have, who you are, what you have become…
Also do not let ANYONE make you feel that your accomplishments or your goals are any less important than theirs…don’t compare your life to anybody else’s because you honestly never know how that person is actually living….and more importantly just be concerned with you, make you happy, be proud of yourself and LOVE yourself….all the rest will fall into place..
That is my daily rant for the night :) I hope you all have an amazing and very blessed weekend on this awesome Friday night!!! And thank you all for supporting me, following me and being awesome fans!!! Goodnight xoxoxo!!!!
Hey everyone, I hope you are having an amazing start to your week. I got home from Nationals and Atlanta late last night. As some of you know it did not go well, not even close to what was planned lol…I got third callout which was the WORST placing I have ever had in a show in my history of competing. I went from third place last year to third call out lol…
It’s all a matter of what they want, when they want it and how they want to do it…it is completely out of my control and that is what you accept when you decide to compete. You can place amazing at a show before (for example my 4th place finish in July of this year at Team U) and then next thing you know you’re waiting at the end of the line on stage to even get called at all….
Competing was something I chose to do because I wanted to…it made no impact whatsoever on my modeling career nor with sponsors so I guess I can be very lucky that my name and my career has been built on something that I do have complete control over. Will I do it again? I have noooo idea…I have no plans to one way or the other. My focus is on what is making me successful and that is my fitness modeling and working with sponsors and working with companies that being a “Pro” doesn’t come into play at all.
I have a large following, a wonderful support system through you all. I have been in amazing magazines with more to come in the next few months. I work with some amazing companies and sponsors so the competing will now be something of the past…unless I decide next year to give it another shot but strictly because I want to be on stage again with no intentions of any set outcome.
I will still be at the shows, working for my sponsors, working booths, doing photoshoots for different photographers and magazines… but as far as getting on stage to try to get that pro card…I have no idea if it will ever happen again. I love the sport, love watching and will always feel that way. I am just not sure it’s for me anymore and if their are any overall benefits that are greater than what I already have going on and continue to accomplish with or without the pro card.
I just wanted to thank EVERYONE who has supported me and helped me and just been there for me…I have some very AMAZING individuals in my life and I am so blessed and grateful for them…you all know EXACTLY who you are :))
I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the day and week and I’ll be back here soon….I have some projects I am working on and can’t wait to get back to putting pics and some other things on here for sale!!!
Thank you again peeps!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3
