It has been quite an eventful year both in my career and my personal life. I am anxious to finally start blogging now that things have settled down a bit. Ive never been much of a writer but I am determined to tackle and master yet another long term goal :)

It has been difficult to blog in the past for a few reasons. 1) I was horrible with time management when I was competing. 2) I know what I want to read in someones blog I follow (personal opinions, views, thoughts), was not necessarily what I felt comfortable putting "out there" at the time 3) lack of originality.. my life was awful boring during contest prep...LOL

SO..now that I do not feel responsible for my words to anyone but myself..Ie. a supplement company, an agent, etc I think this will be the open door to express myself more freely. In my first year as a "Pro" I tried so hard to be the epitome of what the Fitness industry wants.. only to realize my strive for perfection made me the most unhappy person Ive ever known...UGH! I never wanted to say or do ANYTHING that could ever be used against me.. BORING

My Dad recently took a nasty fall and suffered a traumatic brain injury..throughout the last 6 weeks Ive stayed at the hospital with him, Ive realized a lot. My Dad and I are so much alike its comical. My Dad has sooooo many people that absolutely adore him.. but what Ive realized is its not his good looks, charming whit or awesome acheivments that draws people to him, but its his HUGE heart, his love for people, and his honesty.

Its time for me to get back to my roots. Ive accomplished a lot in the last year or so, made plenty of mistakes, and maybe even lost sight of the big picture..ok a few times..but Im excited to have gotten all of these things out of the way so that I can get back to being me and doing what I love the most. Being 'healthy" is an everyday battle for me and I hope that by being REAL I can inspire others to keep striving for your goals..no matter how big.
