Unapologetic Swagger – Part 1: The Lifestyle of an Athlete

It has come to my recognition that sometimes “fit people” intimidate, shock, or even inspire “not so fit people” without even saying a word…. #sorrynotsorry! I can’t help how I look and carry myself. ..like Bey and Nikki say ” Flawless…I wake up like this!”…


…because I grind day and night giving all I got to live this lifestyle and reach my dreams!


The Panel of Commentary – Can’t Take This Body No Where in Public…LOL!

“What inspires you to stay so fit?” – Grocery shopping

“Man I need your diet!” – Grocery shopping

Competition pantry restocking

“You work out don’t you?” – Post Office line mailing in my competition registration

“You look great,  but you look awfully lean!” – Owner at the yoga studio I teach at

“You look like you have one of those ‘Zumba’ bodies, I sell Amway, want to be a representative?” – Lobby of a residential site I train at

Trainer mode

These and other statements along with awkward stares, all but one happened within a 24 hour period by the way,  are a part of my day to day life during my bodybuilding competition season.

I usually just smile,  knod, respond the best way possible and press on, or if I feel like I can drop a little knowledge on a person to push a little harder then I make a deposit and roll on!

If this is how people treat an amateur,  I can only imagine what the other side, yeah being at the top feels like! The official winners circle,  pro status! “I must be doing something right!”


I continue to count down to September 27th and let the comments,  questions,  and stares be my motivation.

Until next time…#EatClean…#TrainDirty
