Best week ever with IFBB Pro Cynthia Herndon

I just had the best week ever! What a true honor to be able to hang out with 2 amazing women....Cynthia and Abby, thank you so much for your kindness and letting me stay with you and learn sooooo much from both of you!

Last Wednesday I drove and meet Cynthia IFBB Pro on home town turf, shopped, worked out stayed at her parents all worked out so beautifully for the week because my parents had already made arrangements to take my children for the week! Can I say by the way Cynthia I have no doubt in my own mind that she could do anything in this world she ever wanted to do! And that means making it too the big "O"!

Thursday we got around and drove over to Abby's home and what a great person she is, totally has all her priorities in line, God, Family, Fun so refreshing to be around such positive strong women! After a little eating and chatting we headed over to Abby's Gym were she is much loved you can tell! Can I just say these 2 girls are strong I mean strong, I'm still sore from chest day! After that Abby showed us her collection of Oxygen Mags. starting back from 1998 every issue she has! Not only does she participate in the sport she really enjoys every aspect of it!

Friday Cynthia and I drove back to my house after working out one last time with Abby we heaeded back to my town and I had a blast showing her around a bit and watching some great fireworks! Got up Saturday and I actually got to take her to my Gym, which might I add the one of the workers is still amazed at her strength on a Dead Lift, she was trying to correct my form......I need lots of practice in that area and have to learn to check my ego at the door until I can get it right! She had to leave from the Gym because she is going to do some great volunteer work.....again I can not stress enough of what a kind, beautiful person she is inside and out and if you have not signed up to be apart of VisionQuester 111
you are truly missing out on great information, the girl could totally write a book if she wanted too! And the thing about her is she just keeps things real, you have high days in this sport and you have low days! Just a real person with a Pro Card spreading all her knowledge of the sport!

Anyways I just wanted to express my true appreciation for having a wonderful chance to meet some amazing women......and to Kim who drove an hour over to Abby's Gym reach for the Stars and I wish you the best of luck in your competition!

Ending this post I almost want to cry because I feel like people come into your life at the correct time! And for me for what I have been going through in the last couple of months I just feel like this was just the thing I needed for my PMA to come back! If you are around Positive, strong people it is contagious

Love, peace and muscle,


P.S. Cynthia I totally just swiped that picture from your sight, I hope that is OK!

See this picture above......I am so excited to say I will have the great honor of working out with IFBB Pro Cynthia Herndon and Abby next week! Little nervous that she will absolutely kick my booty in the gym but I will do my best to keep up at her pace! I'm really stoked about this opportunity not only is she a personal trainer (she has her certification) anyhoo she has an incredible eye for what area's to focus on and also an incredible person. One of the best Pro's around in my book!

On another note I have been back in the Gym and have found it to be my meditation seems to free my mind from racing thoughts. I'm currently reading a book by Lucinda Bassett, the Title of the book is Panic to Power.......I swear from the first chapter I could relate back to my own childhood just by her own stories. I think I've lived with anxiety my entire life but in the book it teaches you how to change the way your thinking and put a stop to worry, guilt, racing thoughts. highly recommend this book to anyone.

Below I will write a poem from one of the first chapters:

Fear is conquered by action.
When we challenge our fears, we defeat them.
When we grapple with our difficulties,
They lose their hold upon us.
When we dare to face the
Things which scare us,
We open the door to freedom.

Peace and love,
