Motivational Quotes

Tara & Michelle June 2011 post workout – BEFORE I started training for my 1st bodybuilding competition.  I think I still look like a runner here!!!!

My good friend and client is moving to Iowa at the end of this month. During my 1st show prep (2012) she would text me weekly motivational quotes. When you are hungry and low on carbs, these gestures mean a lot! I am so glad that I kept them on file and can now share them as they are motivational for everyone, not just competitors. The last 2 are my favorite – I will miss Michelle’s witty sense of humor!

ENJOY.
