First time cutting was a huge experience for me. Doing it yourself is another story. Gained a lot of knowledge on not only how strong my body is but how strong my mind is. You are stronger than you think and don’t think less of yourself. Set the bar high and don’t stop until you reach your goals!

If your gym have a sauna, I totally recommend you to take advantage of it! There are so many benefits when you sit in for just 10 minutes. What I love to do after my workout is stretch in the sauna and it helps to relieve my sore muscles. But don’t forget to bring in your water bottle in to drink and to stay hydrated!
No one knows your name, or your existence. Let your work do the talking, let the fire 🔥 that's inside light the way. Nothing is impossible.
Headed to San Diego in 4 weeks! So in the next four weeks I’m focusing on cutting back on the calories & increasing the cardio. Just trying to feel confident to flaunt it all on the beach 🍑 However, one of my bffs is visiting me this weekend (@gabbyshipfit
) so the cutting calories thing probably won’t be happening a few days 😂
Even after Tuesday the calendar goes WTF...🤷🏼♀️🤣
Maybe I should’ve came back with a lighter squat session 🤦🏻♂️ my legs are on 🔥. Sloppy 335lbsx3x5 @ 182lbs

It’s upper body day today! I’ve been working a lot lately on getting my bench form down. I’ve always struggled with hand placement, but I’m slowly learning how to bench more comfortably.
Tonight was one of those intense leg workouts where you constantly feel like you’re gonna sh*t yourself from pushing so hard 🤣 Hammy/ Glutes once again. Stiff Leg dead’s on the cables... superset with DB SLD’s. 3x 10-12 . Enjoy my friends! Have a kick ass week 🤙🏼 #StayPostive #BeSomebody #JosiahErikTraining
Like if you worked out today 😊! If you haven’t worked out, it’s not too late to complete a 30 minute at home workout.
For 2018, I’ve really been trying to buy shirts in the right size.
Anxiety is something thing I’ve dealt with pretty well for a long time. My job can be naturally stressful, I handle it very well. Making sure I get my workouts and meals in- yeah it can be stressful at times but I get it done. .
It wasn’t until about a month ago anxiety hit me like I’ve never experienced before. I felt like I lost all control. I was scared, I experienced my first panic attack. I felt alone. I thought I was crazy. I felt lost. I didn’t think I was going to make it out of that moment. I held it all in because I didn’t think anyone would understand and just think I’m crazy. It was in that moment I said this is what anxiety feels like. I said this is what it feels like. .
Coping has been a journey. Finding what works for me has taken time. I have good days and bad days. But I can finally admit that I know I will be okay and I WILL make it through. I’d have to say talking to my mom about it was probably the most therapeutic thing I could have done. Being open about it to my friends. Talking about it period. It took me a while to admit it to people instead of just saying “I’m fine”. .

This is one of my favorite pictures from this past weekend. Couldn’t be happier with the package me and @coleman_atkins
were able to bring. Placing top 5 at the biggest/most competitive show in Texas is cool and all, but i gotta place top 2 to get that national qualification so I can spend my off-season 100% focused on Nationals. So the goal is to keep grinding and beat this conditioning in 6 weeks at the Lee Labrada Classic 😈#ColemanBuiltFitness #DallasEuropa2018 #ClassicPhysique #leelabradaclassic2018
When I look at this side by side I see so many different things but the thing that stands out the most is the pure happiness I see in my eyes. Yes, the double chin is smaller, the smile is bigger, and the eyebrows have come a long way lol but I see life in the girl on the right.
I’ll be honest, years ago I wasn’t the happiest person in the world and I simply started eating my feelings away. I had a great relationship but I was living in a cockroach infested apartment and I hated my job so much I would go home and cry almost every night. Food became my comfort and I had absolutely no control.
I seriously ate out every single day for lunch and my husband and I shopped for our food at the dollar tree. I’m not kidding, we lived off food from the frozen section from the fucking dollar tree. It’s not because we didn’t have the money because we clearly did, we ate out every single day. It came down to pure laziness and lack of caring. We both knew what we were putting into our bodies was complete shit but we just didn’t care.
That’s the difference between these two pictures, I finally started to care about myself. That one choice completely changed my life and I’m forever grateful for whatever sparked that inside of me. I got my health back, I got my life back.
Don’t think for one second you can’t change your life because you can. The decision is yours to make if you choose to.

Every now and then when I get tired, when doubts begin to rise and I just need that reminder, I like to throw on clothes from my past and tell myself, "You did this. No one else."
Where you were/are does not have to be a weight that keeps you down and holds you back. Learn from it and allow it to elevate you to heights you never thought possible!
You're not done yet family. You got more in you. Believe that!
