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

Switching it up

Variety. While its not something I’m a huge fan of when it comes to my food, I am a huge supporter of switching up my workouts! I will forever have my favorite exercises that I love to hate (burpees, dumbbell push-up rows, Kettlebell swings, any form of cardio), but I do like to challenge myself … Continue reading


So I admit I indulged in a few sweets Saturday at my friends birthday party. I didn’t have much and definitely no where near how much I would eat when I used to cheat on my diet… But nevertheless my scale is moving in the wrong direction. Anything but down is the wrong direction. Even … Continue reading

Get your booty moving

Good morning all! I know my recent posts have been pretty early… Did I mention to you all that I stared working at a fitness club? I open the gym a few mornings a week, so I’m up by 3am and at work by 4am. Safe to say my days seem to last for ever. … Continue reading

Travel Time

Sorry I missed my Final Countdown Day 1 post yesterday… it was quite a busy day getting things in order. Yesterday was the icing on the cake for me.  My spirit is revitalized and I feel amazing. I stuck to my meal plan during the day, got in a few “Last Chance” workouts as they … Continue reading

The Final Countdown: Day 2

Almost there 🙂 My meal plan is the same as every other no carb day and I have followed it to the gram! As far as workouts go I only got in two today… But I gave them everything I had. I rode my bike (rocking the 10lb weighted vest) to Stokes Fitness and worked … Continue reading

The Final Countdown: Day 3

Nothing is too outrageous with 3 days left for preparation… I rode my bike (for the first time in over a year) about 6 miles to the office this morning.  I was a vision in bright running sneakers, an under armour zip-up and dress pants.  And who could miss the oversized tote I decided to … Continue reading

The Final Countdown: Day 4

Good morning! Day 5 went well. I veered from my diet a little.  I was starving so I made extra scrambled egg whites to hold me over. I finally jumped over that 4lb mark and dropped from 123.1lbs to 122.0lbs this morning.           Today’s Meal Plan: Meal 1: 4 scrambled egg … Continue reading

Day 6 in the bag!

Depleted.  Yep, that’s definitely the word.  I don’t feel like I can drive for more than a few minutes at a time.  I feel lethargic.  My life consists of an empty belly, headaches, aches, soreness and obnoxiously tight hamstrings. On the bright side I’m still putting in the work.  My diet went well today and … Continue reading

The Final Countdown: Day 6

Good morning Day 6! Sorry for no daily update last night, I kind of fell asleep… Yesterday went well… I stuck to my diet and got in most of my workout goals.  I skipped workout 4 or aka my second shift of cardio.  My legs have been so tired.  My hamstrings are so tight I … Continue reading
