I love transformation stories, nothing whitty or clever here…just a goal, a plan, some serious hard work and time of course.

Here’s a lil peek of my own transformation. The photo on the left was taken about a year into my fitness journey (note the hand on hip semi-proud stance & flash coming from le Blakberry) and pic on the right is days before my second or third NPC show last year. Besides having a kick-ass nutrition and training plan, I had heart. I had a vision and stuck to my guns. It has taken me a lot longer than I ever anticipated, but I also had no idea of my potential.

A little side note: I don’t have pics from day 1 of my journey because I really had a hard time with the mess I got myself into and quite frankly I had no interest in documenting that time of my life (in a sports bra of course). This journey hasn’t been the quickest or easiest and I’m totally okay with that. In fact I’m glad because if it were easy it wouldn’t be worth doing.

We all have a story to share. Challenge yourself everyday and do something your future self will thank you for. In the meantime be kind to the person looking back at you in the mirror, learn from your mistakes, and enjoy the ride.

Have a story that you’d like to share? E-mail me at and I’d love to feature you.
