So this weekend I will be gone, I am heading to Columbus Ohio for the Arnold Classic Expo and I am excited, this will be my third time going & I am hoping I get to meet some new people, make new friends, network and really just have a good time. I leaving very early in the morning and wanted to let my fellow bloggers know, to keep stay tuned to my FB page and Instagram because I plan on taking plenty of pictures and getting involved with some of the fun activities. If anyone else is going, I hope you have a good time, and if you want to meet up there, let me know, I love meeting new people, especially those of you who follow me on social media and my blog!

I submitted a fitness/health article to muscle & strength (popular fitness site and supplement store) and they got back with me the other day and said they would be interested in publishing my article — which is very exciting & a huge deal because they are highly recognized & a huge step in my fitness career as a writer and personal trainer! so #crossedfingers all goes well and if so, they will add it to their content queue and have it published. When it does get published, I plan on sharing it with all of you, so everyone can read it! 

Personal Training Website Reveal — Happy New Year’s!

Business Frame of Mind 

My website reveal — Hopefully everyone enjoys the set up, I tried to make it user friendly & easy to navigate. You will notice not all of the buttons have direct sites — (podcast, products, updates, etc) because I haven’t yet started those things; but they will be started this year. Make sure to read my blog post — it will go over some fun things to expect from this website & from me as far as delivering my best foot forward in training and building this website to meet expectations. I appreciate all of the support & patience from many of you who were eager to see what this website is all about, again it will continue to be under construction due to things I have yet to unleash & currently working towards — so bare with me and always feel free to leave feedback.

P.S I will constantly post to my FB business page as well as my fitness/health blog site whenever I add things to the business website — it will also be posted on my other social media platforms. Thank you & welcome.

Goodbye 2018 — Walking Down Memory Lane

I’ll Never Forget…

  1. The Friends I made — Thank you for coming into my life & supporting my goals, dreams and for being a friend to me during good and bad times — Ya’ll are the real MVPs. 
  2. The family get together’s — The memories I shared with all of my family that were part of my 2018, I love you guys & so happy and blessed that you guys made it through another year with me. 
  3. The job changes — I had to do what I needed to do to make things happen and I learned when you aren’t happy doing something, you have the power to change it, just have to look for other opportunities that will help build you & I also learned to not always jump at every opportunity because sometimes things need to be thought out before hopping on board — even if it means missing out. There will be other doors that will open, be patient.
  4. Having been hacked on social media — Thanks for hacking me hackers, ya’ll made it so I could start from scratch and challenged me mentally because after losing all my following, my pictures, my memories, etc, I didn’t think I would ever give it a go again because it just seemed to difficult of a task BUT GUESS WHAT? I did it! I started over and while I am no where near where I was to begin with, I am going to keep going after it. It  feels somewhat good to have to refresh and refocus my attention on building my business and empire once more — just don’t hack me again because I was extremely traumatized the first time, LOL
  5. Break ups & make ups — I am still single and while I wasn’t necessarily ready to have another long term relationship this year due to being stuck on an ex from 2017, I decided to do some dating around & learned that by lowering my standards, I am only hurting myself and the other person because I know what I need in a partner and as long as it is realistic, I should keep to it. I almost got myself in a relationship I didn’t want to be in due to me feeling bad after they poured out their liking for me. I lost their friendship but it was worth it if it means I don’t have to feel pressure to start a committed relationship with this person.I just have to learn to be patient, I am still young, there is no rush for love and as long as I have good friends, good family surrounding me and a positive outlook on life — I know when the timing is right, the person will walk in. 
  6. Seeing my ex from 2017 at a festival for the first time since our break up & contacting her on Thanksgiving —Nothing prepared me for this moment and I don’t think I could have prepared for it even if I had knew ahead of time she would be there. That was hard situation for me, because we don’t have a friendship and seeing her there with one of her exes was shocking but at least I knew she for sure moved on. When I contacted her on Thanksgiving aka her birthday, it was only because it was on my heart to apologize to her — and she answered and was very pleasant about it .. it made me smile a little to know she had my number still and appreciated the apology. I thought maybe I would get an apology as well, but couldn’t be as lucky LOL anyways, maybe I can finally move on mentally from that relationship and allow myself to be free of the pain now. I guess I got the most closure  I will get from it.
  7. Starting my own business & website — Neither is perfect and both will need work but hey, I am glad I did it, that’s the first step before anything else, hopefully 2019 allows for more big things for my business/website as a personal trainer.
  8. New places I visited— Nothing crazy like years prior but a few new places & I love travelling so I want to do it more often each year; starting in 2019! 
  9. Hitting a PR in my conventional deadlift at 305 lbs –– Huge deal to me, who knew I would hit 300 this year, so hopefully 400 will be the next big thing for 2019
  10. I read some good books —  I took some time to get a library card from our town library and then made time for reading & got to read some good books from Stephen King, I read the “Broke Milenninial” book — it was good too, I read some relationship building books & those were helpful and some of my inspiration for doing the 365 day self discovery post
  11. Paid off a credit card — yay! I was so happy when I paid off a credit card and my FICO score increased! 
  12. Paid off my car – Another big Hooray for me! I now own it & it saves me money and feels good, I am finally adulting — small bit.
  13. My points from tickets have fallen off  & no car accidents — I feel like this is awesome because at one point I had 6 points (half way til I was suspended) from getting speeding tickets. lol but now I drive much better and do little speeding. & having no accidents is always a good thing! 
  14. New songs I have fallen love with — added to my spotify playlist — I loved some of the new music I have heard this year, added many of them on my spotify account (I am huge into music)
  15. Went to my FIRST Metal band/Scream O concert – Who knew I would like this type of music, but I learned that some of it is actually really good when I understand what they are saying or can relate to the rage
  16. I have a savings account again — and have money in it, good amount of money in it and I am now more accountable with adding money to it weekly or biweekly 🙂 it feels good! 
  17. I finished watching all of the Game of thrones series: && I am excited for the new season to start in April! I love the show! 
  18. I went to the movie theater alone — It was on my bucket list of things I wanted to do, and I did it! was excited because it wasn’t as bad as thought it would have been — it was fine 😀 I survived. 
  19. Still blog — Hey! I am still on wordpress and blogging, another year to be thankful for keeping at it and loving it. 
  20. The many things I overcame to be here right now.. I’ll never forget those obstacles 
  21. Went to Cedar point for the first time since like middle school & took my youngest brother for the first time — He loved it, and I enjoyed it. I am a wimp but always get on rollercoasters anyways and he enjoyed himself on the coasters and was just as scared as me but was very brave! ❤ 
Happy New Year’s

Do you react well in a crisis?

  • For the most part I’m usually alert but calm depending on crisis.
