“When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.

Thanks for stopping by…

I AM a Powerlifter/ Strong(wo)man Competitor/ CrossFitter/ BodyBuilder/Marathon Runner/Blogger/Food Lover/Traveler

I LOVE weightlifting, dinosaurs, being healthy, savoring good food and wine, exploring the world, sharing happiness and laughs with the people close to me.

I HATE rude people, the smell of pickled foods, hashtags, and bad drivers.

I don’t know where my life’s journey will take me but I plan on filling the journey with adventures along the way.

Grab a barbell and join me as I travel through life, one deadlift at a time

  1. Hi! Love your blog, just found it last night and am currently avidly reading every post 🙂 Is this the best place to place questions? I had a few about your experience with your bikini competition… I really want to do one but am afraid the coach I chose is charging a little much. Is 50$ per 30 minutes normal?

    All the best,


    1. Hey Jordan! I am so glad to hear your are enjoying the blog! Feel free to post comments or questions wherever you’d like. Doing a bikini competition is a major life commitment and takes A LOT of dedication, but it is an awesome experience. Unfortunately coaches tend to be very expensive. It depends on what services your coach is offering for $50 for 30 minutes. If that would be your workouts/posing/nutrition it sounds like a pretty good deal, but if its just a personal trainer who is giving you workouts and no other aspect of preparation, it sounds a bit steep. The coach I had gave me workouts and meal plans to do, but didn’t actually supervise my workouts. (And, as you probably read, he sucked so I wound up firing him). There is a ton of information available on the internet (for free!) so if you’re trying to cut costs, you can do a lot of the research yourself. I’ll help you out in any way I can, best of luck on your adventure, Nicole
