Work smarter than everyone. You don’t have to be gifted, talented,rich, or have the perfect environment to get to where you want to be. You just have to take control of that which you have in your control. That’s your time reading and learning , and the level you push yourself to the point where you know you ain’t getting out of that gym , classroom, arena etc unless you know you ain’t got even 1% more to give before you start to faint, vomit, or can’t keep your eyes open reading another word. do.that.every.single.day.”

A 2nd and 4th place finish meant I earned some good food. You better believe I took total advantage of being in this magical city of delicious food at every turn. It surely is a good thing that I like training as much as I like to get my grub on. But what else is a girl to do on a place like Paris?!? It has been so much fun running around acting like a local, going with the flow and letting the magic happen, but I have never been as hyped to get back to training. Initially, I was going to sit out from Fitness America this year, but between this show and @phase1sports @iamphase1 getting me back in my zone, I am more hype than ever. A little more Paris then on to the next one.
Merci beaucoup to @musclemaniaparis for all of your hospitality and welcoming @rubycarterpikes and I to your first Pro show.”
Swiss Model Nicolas Iong says, “You can not grow without struggle, without challenges. Struggles, challenges and hard times offer you much more value than any other time in your life. You can not grow without struggle. And, you can not get stronger without resistance.”
