Hey everyone I just wanted to take a minute and ask you all to go check out my latest interview with Fitness Gurls Magazine ;) I was very excited and honored to be asked to participate and I hope you all enjoy it!!! You can find it at the following link:
Thank you all so much and hope everyone is having a great start to their week!!!! Prep has officially begun for me GOOD TIMES!!!!
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!!
As soon as I have everything chosen and printed up I will be putting the availability of them back on my site for purchase and then it’s all good!!
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

Keep checking back for updates and I hope the rest of everyone’s day goes amazing….something to keep in mind today, I agree with this 100%:
“I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life’s
greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending
commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may
sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their
dreams from those who live in regret.”
I had the pleasure and the crazy schedule of having three photo shoots at this year’s Arnold. I shot with the amazing Paul Buceta and Andrew Nicholson (twice).
Here are a couple, one from each shoot. I will be posting more as I receive them and also go through them. Hope you all like and I appreciate that continued support from all you awesome peeps!!
Hope everybody has a wonderful night!!!
