How's the year, your goals, and new year resolutions going?
Had a couple bad days? A few missed workouts? Some treat days?...Oh good, it's not just me!
I have good news, that's totally ok! You can still reach ALL of your 2018 goals because guess what: You don't have to be perfect 100% of the time.
You just have to master ONE skill: the art of picking up where you left off. That's it! Sounds simple, but understanding this was a HUGE game changer for me. Once I finally learned this, like truly grasped it, I was able to stop the vicious all-or-nothing cycle and finally make real progress on my goals.

Traveling for work is sometimes fun, but it can be taxing and not always a smooth ride. However, I had fun shooting and doing my first podcast interview for Bodybuilding.com! Check out the behind-the-scenes shots from what I was doing on my trip. Shooting with bodybuilding.com is always great because I get to have help setting everything up, and yet I get to step out of my comfort zone too. We all need to be challenged in order to grow as individuals, so this was a great experience! I also included a new recipe for my One-Pan Cheesy Chicken "Casserole", try it out and tell me what you think!

I do not know about you, but I need a routine every day to keep me on track. I love my morning routine because it gives me the chance to start my day off right, and strong!

I Love my Fitmark Tote Gym Bag!
This bag holds everything I need for my busy day, and my workouts.
Check out the essentials I keep in my gym bag. See the products I use to frehsen up after gym workouts. I am always working, so I keep my work tools with me all the time too! I keep snacks with me too, just in case my blood sugar drops, try some of them out. Sneak a peak at what I tote around in my Gym Bag every day.
I’ve seen a lot of these “day in the life” type of videos on youtube and I always love them because they give us a glimpse as to who people are, how they do things, and they are just fun. I wanted to make a fun video for you guys and open up a bit. This video is not intended to be informative or particularly helpful even though I do talk about a few things I do that may or may not be helpful to some. But all in all, it is for fun! I got a few comments already that it was “not helpful at all” or “that I’m just showing off and not sharing anything informative” So I wanted to clarify that it wasn’t intended to be. I just wanted to do something a little fun for once and let you all into my life a little more.
I wanted to share my typical leg day because it’s my favorite day. Mostly because, I tend to have a cheat meal on leg day since it’s when I burn the most calories and need the most fuel.
In this video I discuss the importance of Muscle Recovery for progress, ways to effectively recover, supplements to help recovery, how to avoid injuries and maximize your gains.
