It took a little while to sink in…

Three years ago, January, I started blogging with My Glorified Journal. My first declared engagement was to compete in a Figure Competition in May 2012. I trained, I competed, I won. It was a great feeling and propelled me into the fitness industry to share my passion with clients. Changing their lives as fitness changed mine. … Continue reading

A Day Off

This week has been physically, mentally and emotionally exhausting.  In turn, I’m giving my body the day off.  No Pilates, no yoga, no running and no appointment with my trainer.

Getting my breakfast … Continue reading

Day 2.  Normally the day following a full body workout we would isolate my upper body.  However, since … Continue reading
