4 month update: jiu jitsu, dancing, exploring, learning, tacos…

HOLY FUCK IT’S BEEN OVER 4 MONTHS SINCE I’VE UPDATED MY BLOG

I’m sorry, I am a baddd person

I still feel very excited to be travelling, and I still feel excited to continue. So here I am! Sitting in a coffeeshop in Medellin (well…actually it’s a printing shop with a tiny table, but close enough), with the intention to relay some of the experiences I’ve had these past few months.

I have some random “journal” entries that I have kept, so I ...

Day 4/90 Fasting for 24 hours

I have never in my life ever done a 24 hour fast.

I feel like me and fasting just don’t get along, that’s just not what we do. I’m not the type to “forget to eat” (wtf is THAT?!), and I like to have regularly timed meal intervals. Generally every 3 hours, like the good bodybuilder that I am.

So..why am I doing this. I guess…I am interested in stretching my limits. And seeing what I can tolerate. To demonstrate my inner ...

Day 2/90: Mindful Eating Challenge

Today my challenge to myself is to:

-eat mindfully at every meal

-rate my hunger prior to eating and after eating

-rate my emotions prior to eating, and after eating

 

Mindful eating involves using all your senses to be aware of your food and how you eat it. Slowing down. Acknowledging your responses to the food without judgement. And tuning in to physical hunger, satiety cues, and even psychological processes, to see how they all interact within your eating.

 

Will you join me today in ...

Hot damn, 2014 was a pretty fucking epic year. It didn’t feel super electric or anything, but reflecting back– there was a lot of shit!!! A lot of AWESOME SHIT.

  • Broke the national bench press record, broke the national squat record, broke the national overall total, and won best lifter award at the Old Skool Iron Classic Powerlifting Championships (described more here)
  • Won first in my class and overall at my first physique competition, qualifying ...

NPC Nationals 2014

I’ll keep this brief…

The journey to NPC Nationals was extremelyyyyyyy difficult! It took every ounce of me, mentally and physically! Every ounce. Everything.

The road was rocky…So many times I was uncertain I could pull it off. I was a nutcase, straight up. Mindfuckery. I trained hard tho, and I gave it my all…and….it ended up working out!

NPC Nationals took place Nov 21 + 22, 2014 in Miami, Florida. Every physique competitor looked AMAZING! These girls were JACKED!!!! It was also ...

Won first overall at NPC SF :)

cool! I won a big sword –> deets in a sec 😉

It was a well-run show, and I prepared a lot differently for this show than the last show. Nutrition was very different and peak week was totally different, but I felt it worked much better for me! I am still experimenting and learning, but definitely I liked how I looked and felt 😉 Here I was in the morning in my hotel, before pre-judging:

I won first overall at my physique competition!!

Oh my GOODNESS

I am TERRIBLE for being SUCH a delinquent blog-writer…I had a HUGE victory…and here it is…3 weeks later! (sawwy!)

My first ever PHYSIQUE competition was on August 23rd, 2014. The NPC Tahoe Show, in South Lake Tahoe. A national qualifier.

ANNNNDDDDD….I WON!!!!!

It was AWESOME.

I mean, don’t get me wrong…The prep was grueling (because I had JUST finished my powerlifting competition and decided to jump into this physique competition with only a 10 week prep- eeks!) …sooo ...

“COMMITMENT IS ABOUT CHOOSING TO FOLLOW THROUGH ON WHAT YOU SAID YOU WERE GOING TO DO IN SPITE OF HOW YOU FEEL”

YES! Read this today and this is EXACTLY how I feel and what I am DOING.–>

Sticking to your training and nutrition plan really has very little to do with how you feel.

If you only train and manage your nutrition properly when you feel like it you can rest assured that you’re never going to get anywhere because the times when you feel like it are largely going to be outweighed by the number of times when there are ...
