😩 Although this photo is a bit grainy, it pretty much sums up my day. I'm coming off a last few days of my final push for my fitness competition, and yesterday it got the best of me. I've been working so hard with a "no days off" mentality for the past two months, and really pushing myself in a few different ways; I've been disciplined with my meals and have been nowhere near shy of stacking on extra calories when recommended to by my team captain, I've been consistently pushing myself hard in the gym and lifting heavy every time, and I've talked myself into getting my workout done on even the days when I've been sick, had an injury, or felt pretty darn tired. I only took rest days for the sole purpose of body recovery as truly needed. SO....when the body fat scale weighed me in at only 6lbs heavier with a 2% body fat gain, I was honestly devastated. That translates to roughly only 3lbs muscle gained, and 3lbs fat gained! What the heck?!?! Seriously? How could that be, on both accounts?! And a 50/50 ratio of fat gained to muscle gained?! Something felt seriously wrong! I HAD to have gained more muscle than 3lbs, and definitely not at a 50% ratio to fat gain, holy heck! 😖 So....it really got to me. I started questioning myself and all the hard work I put into the last two months. I concluded that either my numbers on the scale didn't add up, or that somehow I....didn't add up. It's safe to say that I allowed myself an afternoon of feeling sorry for myself, and to reflect on all the other areas of my life where I feel I've put so much effort in yet with such little return. And, I cried. Yep. This competition to me has been more than my body and fitness; it's been about my mind and self determination, and how that can spill over into other areas of my life. In a way it became a way for me to self validate, a place for me to belong, something that I was good at and could be proud of when much of my life so far has felt like a never ending road of feeling "behind". I wanted to prove to myself that I am changing this long streak of feeling like I've been dragging my feet in the mud. And then.....here I was, crying because all my hard work felt in vain.

Managed to walk away with 3rd place at the 2017 Beer Brawl and had a blast doing it! I decided to take a zero on the Axel deadlift for reps when during warm ups my back decided it was not happy. Finally it a 120lb log Press (got it a really longs time ago and haven't hit it since) then as gracefully as possible dropped the 130lb log #whoops #brutecrew #2017BeerBrawl #logcleanandpress #tireflips #kegcarryandload #strongwoman #startingstrongman #thisisjustthebeginning #girlswhostrongman #ladieslifthere #strongaf #badass

My one and only match from today at @nagafighter. Originally there was another girl in our division but I saw she had registered for 139.9 and under (the weight class below me) and missed weight at 147, so I guess that probably had to do with her dropping out. Regardless, I went against Elizabeth who is a naval cadet and she was super strong and tough. I really had to work hard for this one but got a submission by armbar from triangle position around the 2 minute mark. Still doesn’t feel like a real gold medal to me because I only beat one person and I really wanted at least a full podium but I’m definitely proud of how I performed today. Thanks to @zachmaslany @jm10p @10pbethlehem for teaching me so much this past year and the guys at @martialwaymma for helping to coach me. #ontothenext #thisisjustthebeginning #10p4l #bjjgirls #bjjcompetition

@Regranned from @kgrahamsfb - This was the highlight of Nationals for me. 16 reps in 1 minute with 4️⃣4️⃣0️⃣lbs for an event win! Still waiting for the final standings to be posted. I think I am just outside the top 10 among 45 of the top girls in the country. I am addicted to this sport and am in love. Thank you to eveyone who helped me and supporting me along the way @chris_graham94 @wes_whitlock @bertsorin @baconator39 @letkallelift @robertoberst @prostrongmanjohnnywaz @acestrength @thebattleaxegym. #imhungry #iwillbeback #markmywords #thisisjustthebeginning #strongman #strongmantraining #nationals #nationals2017 #strongwomen #girlswholift #girlswithmuscle #fitness #fitnessmotivation #crossfitgirls @frandenim @highspeeddaddy @fitvine_wine @wodbottom @strongmancorporation @crossfit_strongman @fuelmeals @innerarmour_usa @rogueamericanapparel #igbestbodies
