Every once in a while, I'll catch myself getting a little too caught up in the world of bodybuilding; obsessing over macros, grips, avoiding social food situations on a cut, avoiding social activities that will burn too many calories on a bulk, etc. It is those times when I bust out the "10 things I am besides a bodybuilder" list! It gives me a healthy dose of perspective and honestly, helps me to train and eat BETTER. Here's my list, please share yours :)

I am a bodybuilder AND..
1. An aspiring alternative healer.
2. A proud and active member of the UUA
3. A Disney movie addict.
4. A childcare provider.
5. A singer.
6. A women's rights advocate.
7. A dedicated Starbucks customer.

9. A die-hard Packer fan.
10. A good friend and neighbor :)
