After getting my American Degree at National Convention this year, I thought my time in FFA was all but over. I hung up my jacket, retired my suspenders to the highest shelf in my closet, and unpacked my tie for the last time. As I reflected on my amazing 5 years in the organization, I remembered countless genuine life long friends and some pretty belly hurting laughs. I keep two pretty big reminders of how God blessed me through FFA with me at home everyday, and they both live right upstairs. When I finished unpacking my bag, I started feeling a hole in my heart, like I would never feel those awesome feelings again.
That’s where I was wrong. I may have retired my FFA jacket, but I didn’t retire the lessons it brought me. I may have gotten my last degree, but I sure as heck didn’t make my last friend. Presenting at our FIRE Conference this week was a humbling reminder of that.
As a State Officer, I felt like a superhero in my Official Dress. I thought that blue corduroy could stop a bullet. With the confidence it gave me, it probably could have. The blue jacket was a unifying force for me. I could dare to be different and bold, because the blue jacket always seemed to pull us together. This weekend was one of the first times I’ve had to step up big outside of my jacket. Let me tell you, it’s not gone. Our blue jackets don’t define us, empower us, or bring us together; the people inside them do.
The students at FIRE this week stepped up in big ways. I’m so freakin proud of the growth they exhibited and felt. They started their life changing journey to find the power of leadership and the blessings of blue corduroy. They made goals, made friends, and made changes to the way they approach things in life. I’m so thankful my Heavenly Father allowed me to be there to watch.
Wyoming FFA, thanks for the crazy amazing ride, but it’s not over yet.

When you move into a new space it can take months (or over a year in our case) to get organized 🙀
Getting nested in our home has taken us time, but we’ve enjoyed every step of the process. Tackling different spaces at different times.
This morning we tackled the basement and hung up my latest art piece (Sarasota Sunset) and our funky book 📚 shelf that WE built from scratch - swipe to see.
Our basement is now known as the zen den/book nook and we can’t wait to cozy up in there in the fall/winter and get all #Hygge ❤️
Or we can start this weekend🤗

Last night I reluctantly, reflectively and graciously hung up my costumes- to my final Chamber Show, and the last time I performed in Strasser... remembering four short years ago my first performance at Brockport, being nervous about the show and the years to come in that exact spot in the dressing room. I’m so overwhelmed with how wild and crazy these years have been- literal blood, sweat and tears through and through. I’m grateful for the community I have, we carry each other through the darkest times and brightest times with a level of compassion and selflessness that is truly honorable. Please know I mean it with every ounce of me when I say- I’m so happy to be dancing with you. ❤️

Went happily to bed at 9pm and woke up to moving into a new home. The last year has been, well, at least not boring. I can gladly say that life never gets old whether you like it or not. Today we are moving into a house that is meant to be our home for the next at least 12 months. In the last year I lived in over 11 houses, not including hotels, hostels, tents and vans. I just hung up my first piece of decoration. It was worth all its $2.50 glory. The next chapter is about resting, nourishing and, finally, hopefully, having found the time and space to heal. #tropiclikeitshot #paradisewhereveryouare #happynewyearnewhome

Drop me an emoji if you know exactly what I mean 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Truth be told: I did it all for a pedi 😵😵😵⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yup. A - P E D I 💅⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What if I told you that my successful influencer gig began as a way this stay at home mama to just go get a PEDI without feeling guilty?!⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sounds a bit selfish and maybe a bit silly but I gave up those silly selfish “treats” for myself when we made the decision to become a single family income.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hung up my CPA license for late nights with sleepless babes and long days with 2 under 2 ✌️✌️✌️⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Happily so mind you, but I began to long for something M O R E! ⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I had no desire to “build” a team of rocking GIRLbosses 👯‍♀️👯‍♀️👯‍♀️ but gosh the idea of a pedi on these tired feet was FREEING!!!⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And then I got curious...to see if maybe I could cover the cost of my monthly superfoods AND enough for a pedicure #SAHMprobs⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And then I got really curious...and started to talk to my friends and family about my own transformation and how I could help them too...⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And as a sat with a limitless potential opportunity RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY FACE...⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I ran with it F A S T and have NEVER LOOKED BACK! ⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That ONE decision I made 4.5 years ago has left the most profound mark on my life, LIFESTYLE and our F U T U R E and I’d be a jerk if I didn’t share what I DO with YOU!⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just enjoy following me? THANK YOU! Your support means so much to me 🤸‍♀️⠀

Looooove being a challenger? ⠀

Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for helping my dreams COME TRUE 💗💗💗⠀

For the last 4 years I have been giving private softball lessons, hosting clinics, and coaching at the Lovett School here in Atlanta. In those 4 years I have found my goals and my dreams but most importantly, I have found myself. .
.
For those of you that know me, you know I love softball. But I didn’t really know what this game meant to me until recently. Yes, recently- almost 5 years after I hung up my cleats and turned in my beautiful Carolina Blue jersey. I didn’t really understand how this game had molded me until I had to reflect on my mission as a coach. During that reflection I realized there were times that I took the game for granted. Times where I was selfish and narrow minded, focused on my personal successes all the while missing the bigger picture.
.
I was a confident player and that carried me far. But I also played carelessly and fearfully. And that HELD ME BACK!.
.
Do I have regrets? Yes.
Does that change my perception of my career? A little.
Am I still proud of my career and what I accomplished? Yes.
I now wake up daily knowing that I can’t change the approach I had when I was wearing Tarheels across my chest, BUT I can take this revelation and LIGHT A FIRE in every young athlete I work with.
.
A fire that is ignited by the 3 core values I coach by and live by:
CONFIDENCE: In your mindset. In the way you walk. The way you smile. The way you talk to yourself and others.
FREEDOM: Free of all fears, free of all doubt. Freedom to unleash your soul and energy.
INTEGRITY: Choosing courage over comfort. Choosing what is right over what is fun, fast, or easy.
I work daily to live and coach by these 3 words. And yes my goals are to coach softball, to spread softball, to take girls to the next level in this sport and to show them that this game is a platform for their lives.. but MY DREAM.. MY DREAM is to use confidence, freedom and integrity in mentoring young girls to BECOME the WOMEN they are MEANT TO BE.

SWEET LUCY’S LOVE LOUNGE BACK STORY: I want to THANK DON B WELCH for this incredible opportunity. THIS CAST, the singers and the music...what a FUN, THOUGHT PROVOKING and ENTERTAINING piece of theater.....that ALMOST didn’t happen for me. There are NO SUCH thing as coincidences in the KINGDOM of God. INITIALLY, I planned my comedy roast and benefit for the same NIGHT, APRIL 14th. The initial venue I wanted wasn’t available on that night, so I moved it to Sunday,APRIL 15.....well....that venue FELL THROUGH and we’ve since moved it to JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT’s FINANCE PARK. LONG STORY SHORT....here comes DON B WELCH with the offer to play THOMAS ANDERSON IN “Sweet Lucy’s Love Lounge”.....Don sends me the offer via FACEBOOK MESSENGER. I TURNED IT DOWN. NOT because I didn’t want to do it, but because of my event the next day. Well, a few days later, I look on my NEWS FEED and see MY PICTURE included in the CAST ANNOUNCEMENT for SWEET LUCY’S LOVE LOUNGE.....so I call Don....he apparently misread my message....we talked, he described the play and the role....it sounded FUN....but, because of the COMEDY ROAST...I declined and hung up. My wife LATONYA was standing within ear shot (she always is) with that “wife look”. She said, “I think you should do this play. I GOT THE EVENT COVERED”. I quickly picked up the phone, dialed DON WELCH BACK....before he could replace me in this vast town of TALENTED ACTORS and thank God....he hadn’t cast it yet. If the VENUE I DIDNT USE had been available on the 14th, I wouldn’t have changed the date to be available to do this play. (The venue we ended up at WAS AVAILABLE on SATURDAY). Get it? MORAL OF THE STORY. SEE THIS PLAY. ITS A WONDERFUL PIECE....FUNNY. THOUGHTFUL. VERY VERY ENTERTAINING. MY MOMMA WILL BE IN THE HOUSE.....I’m supposed to BE IN IT.....GOD IS GOOD. See you ALL this weekend. What a wonderful BIRTHDAY GIFT. #TheWeekendOfCarl #NoSlowdownAt60 #SweetLucysLoveLounge #GetYourTicketsToday #WilshireEbellTheater

I appreciate you all for tuning into my Chitter stream of consciousness. For those new to my journey, I am a board certified osteopathic doctor with undergraduate degrees in biology, psychology, human anatomy and physiology.🔬
〰️〰️〰️
However, medical jargon is the farthest thing you’ll find on my page. You’re more likely to find vegan inspiration, spiritual scribbles, plant based recipes, and insights into my self healing journey.🌱
〰️〰️〰️
I resigned from the system and hung up my white coat, surrendering my path as an internal medicine physician. It’s impossible to explain in a few lines what led me to the most difficult decision of my life; one day, I intend to write a book about it. If you’re interested to know more, scrolling through my feed will lead you to posts where I’ve gone deeper into it, along with posts about my battle with severe mental health, and how I holistically healed years of depression, anxiety, mania, & PTSD.✏️
〰️〰️〰️
I’m gearing up for an Instagram detox, which I’ll be starting on Monday. It will be a minimum of one week, and I’m so excited to know 50+ of you guys are gonna be joining in; whether it’s for one day, a few days, or the whole way!!! That’s incredible!!! I’m inspired to see so many conscious energies feeling an attraction to spending more time with the Self.
I would love to read your reflections pre or post detox! Please use hashtag #ChitterDetox, so I can read about your experiences when I’m back. ❤️
〰️〰️〰️
Social media no doubt has its value, but it can also serve to be an obsessive distraction, where we are✨over consuming the greatness of others, while neglecting our own potential for greatness.✨
If you feel your social media usage is out of balance, if you’re spending too much time scrolling, comparing, judging, exposing yourself to triggers that are continuing to fuel your addictive cycles; I encourage you to join me on my IG detox.
Give yourself the chance to experience a few days without that ‘illusion.’ Open yourself up to what you might feel and learn, when you further align, with the Self.
〰️Chiti, D.O. 〰️
✨Tag someone who could use a break from social media.🌹

On this self care Sunday just remember that what you see on Insta isn’t always reality. Meaning that people post the highlights and the good times, never the mundane and the not so fun times.

Hope your day is fabulous whatever you may be doing today !

This quote popped up on my phone exactly when I needed it today!! -

Yes I am making a comeback to the Pro stage but let me tell you, this has been a struggle!!! I love being “back in the game” mentally and physically. I love Pushing my limits, building my confidence, renewing my inner drive and determination. I love harder work and the harder it gets the more focused and driven I feel. -
-
However, there has been a battle this time around with my body not responding the same. In some ways I expected that. I started competing when I was 22years old, after 11years of competing I hung up my heels and thought I was done. Now after a 6 year break I figure it’s time to get back in the game, but this 39year old body is fighting me😬
-
-
My Coach, Kim Oddo, and I are learning my new body response and making changes. So my drive is that I continually hold on to hope that at any given day or week, I’m going to have an amazing drop in weight/bodyfat. -
-
I don’t like to share the struggles of contest prep because I am, in general a positive mindset person. However, I do feel like there are many people out there, including many of my clients, that experience the rough days/weeks. My message to you is to stay strong, if your body response is stuck for too long, then trouble shoot and explore ways to trick your body. Don’t do this alone, use an experienced and educated Coach such as my Coach, and an incredible support group. My husband has always been by my side cheering me on and giving me the right mindset. My sister, Shelly is my sounding board and patient/consistent workout partner. -
-
To me this quote holds true. The feeling of making a comeback and proving to yourself that you still have the drive, is way better than the temporary setbacks we encounter along the way.

This is an update to my previous...
Before I move on I want to clear the Air on some things.
1. I am the provider of the house 100%
2. The problem she has with me is that I sometimes raise my voice when making my points (which i accept and work on), and that I am not as caring as i should be. But Ever since she mentioned about the Kitchen helping, I have been doing that, I even wash our clothes in the Washing machine and dry them outside by myself. She doesn't clean the house, as I employed someone to do that.
Back to the Update...Now I left the house since Monday till now, she called on Tuesday only once i didn't pick, same on Wednesday i answered the phone and she was asking why I left the house that i should please come back, that whatever I want her to adjust she will adjust, that she's missing me ( However with the way she said all that i knew it was not her personal resolve, so i didn't say anything). On Thursday she called again i picked and this time her tone changed o, she started attacking me saying all sots of things that I am heartless to have left her alone in the house, saying i had other plans, and that it was getting out of hand, i should come back. I told her i'm okay where i am, at least i am not in her face, making her insult me anyhow. She said she doesn't know where i am, but i told her i am at my friend house which she knows the place, that she can come and confirm herself but she said no o she cant go to anybody's house. So after I hung up my Brother called me asking why i haven't gone back home, i told him he shouldn't worry i have it under control and I will return eventually, that was when he told me he was the one that told her to call me that Wednesday and beg me by all means (Not her personal decision). he even says he didn't like the way she was talking. That same night she kept sending me text messages saying she is not phased by my action and accusing me of all sorts of things as to the reason i left, and that she will contact her people to know the process to take. Well...Unfortunately she didn't not come to look for me, if I'll put it like that, she didn't maintain her initial "remorseful facade"

My girlfriend called me early this am and wants me to find her a house ASAP to purchase. (Urgent for her) I haven’t hung up my license because I’m not an “active” agent. To be honest, I got my license for fun and don’t have any time to work at finding clients being that my shoes are first and ALWAYS PRIORITY. My brand keeps me VERY busy, but because i am very connected, i figured why not have my license in case a friend needs something or a referral comes in. ☺️If i am too busy to take a job, then ill refer it out and still make referral money. 😁 #IUseMy24Hours

Over the weekend, I finally hung up my son’s framed artwork, together with an original Disney animation art piece I got when I worked with them on a project a zillion of years ago when I was at frogdesign. They are now proudly displayed in the play room.
.

My son went through a serious artist phase when he was 4-5 years old. He would spend several days perfecting one piece, and he had created a train series by redrawing the same subject, trains, over and over. It was beautiful and I was amazed by his creation. Unfortunately I haven’t seen him create like that as he grow older. As Picasso once said, every child is an artist, the problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. I hope he can somehow find that again in him, or I will forever cherish what he has created ❤️
.
Anyone want to license such amazing artwork for a wall art collection? Contact me I am his agent 😂@oopsydaisyart ? 😉😍❤️

Your shoes were 5-6” and dancers rarely wore taller. Double-layered panties and tank tops were the uniform and we rarely wore knee pads. Times have changed and diversified beyond my imagination!

I've been blessed with the opportunity to continue playing football overseas. My next stop is Belgrade, Serbia. People don't always understand why I keep going back, mainly because I'm not making millions. Here's why..
I'm from Ft. Lauderdale, FL, a place where most people don't leave. I went to college in Colorado, not knowing where it was or what states were surrounding. I didn't get a chance to play in the NFL, but I got a chance to go to Europe. Most people save up for months or years to go to Europe for a couple weeks. For the past 6 years, I've been able to travel to different countries and cities all over Europe. Places like Germany, Denmark, Sweden, France, Poland, Holland, and Spain. I've worked, lived, and immersed myself foreign culture and experiences that have enriched my life beyond anything I could have imagined. I've helped (or tried to)grow the game of football through training and coaching. I've seen kids I've coached go to high school and college to live out their dreams, even when other people doubted them.
The point is, is that it's ok to do something different and spontaneous. It's ok to take chances. I could have went and played for a college in Florida. And when I didn't make it to the NFL, I could have hung up my cleats. I decided to follow a dream and take a chance. That decision to go to Hamburg in 2012 was the best decision of my life. Traveling throughout Europe, living for free, getting paid all while playing football?!?! I think I'm straight. #euroballer #dontconform

One of the reasons why I enjoy speaking on tour is because of the opportunity I have to share stories of pursuing and achieving goals, like I did at the San Jose Fit Expo over the weekend. I talked about how I had no business being there, on stage as a featured speaker at the mainstream fitness expo. I was a skinny long distance runner, and only weighed 120 pounds when I became vegan as a teenager back in 1995. I had no business being in the sport of bodybuilding, but I was determined to get bigger and stronger to show myself and others that I could build muscle with a vegan lifestyle. It was the late '90s, the internet was still new, and I hung up my running shoes and traded them in for a pursuit of weight lifting. I was 20 years old in this before photo at 157 pounds, and by age 23 I weighed 193 pounds. By age 25, as I was in this photo, I was winning my first bodybuilding competition (though I came in 2nd on the day of this particular photo). One of the reasons why I was able to pursue and achieve my goal of getting bigger and stronger and showing that you could build muscle on a plant-based diet, when there were very few others doing it, was because I had a passion for my pursuit, and I connected the dots ahead of time. I figured out how I needed to train, how I needed to eat, and the level of consistency and dedication it required in order to make a significant change. I went on to have a 10-year competitive vegan bodybuilding career, and have since written three best-selling books about the vegan fitness lifestyle that I have now been living for 23 years. Sharing stories of overcoming obstacles, believing myself, and working hard to make a difference in the lives of others through my plant-based athlete success is something that still compels me to get up on stage and speak to audiences around the world. I'll be turning 39 on my next birthday, and I keep on keeping on, setting new goals and pursuing new passions. I've been following a compassionate vegan lifestyle since I was a teenager, and ultimately grew from 120 pounds to 210 pounds. Sharing my stories has helped others believe in themselves and learn that they can dream and achieve. 🙏

This is my opinion and you may disagree but that's fine:
Competing is NOT a lifestyle. It's not a necessity. It is a privilege.
Off season on the other hand is more of a lifestyle. But this term has been 'twisted ' in such a way that it comes with a negative connotation.

So what does off season really mean to me? It's just any other day that I'm not prepping for a contest. Lol.
It's a way of life. And how a person lives their 'off season' differs.
Some use this term as a phase where they just eat whatever they want and gain a lot of fat and some muscles. And that's not wrong. It's their prerogative.
I prefer to maintain a certain physique in my off season. I don't need to have a single digit body fat ( even though I wish I could maintain that. Haha). But we all know that to be in contest prep all year round is not realistic.
I need to have my monthly period ( cos let's face it, this goes away when you're in contest prep from extremely low body fat). I want the strength to lift heavier and improve on body parts that are lacking.
With that said, I have not hung up my competition bikini yet. I am taking the year off competing BUT mark my words, I'm still working my ass off at the gym.
I want to make sure that the next time I step on stage, I have the goods to back me up. I don't just want to be good. I want to be mind blowing phenomenal.

The only running medals I have are participation medals. 😊 I’m not a great runner, or even a good runner. But being able to run again after being so overweight was a huge part of feeling athletic again. I remember running my first full mile, my first 5k unbroken. And in true-to-me fashion, I cried after each. I finished two half marathons. I’ve done lots of 5k’s. When I was overweight I remember seeing runners and wishing so badly that I could just lace up my shoes and take off running for miles. It held so much symbolism for me, the ability to just run. I had one knee surgery three years ago. But even with doctors orders to not run, I continued to run/walk several 5k’s. But my second knee surgery is looming this week. And it’s time for me to heed doctor’s orders and stop running. It’s hard to accept. I know that my weight took its toll on my knees. Torn cartilage, no cartilage, torn meniscus, arthritis, bone spurs... they’re a mess. So, I have hung up my running shoes. It makes me sad. I’ve been doing mostly air assault and rowing intervals for a couple of months already. I’ll have to find other ways to challenge myself. I really don’t want knee replacement, so I’ll be babying these knees from now on. Cheers to all if you who pound the pavement! I’ll be cheering for you from the sidelines! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

I never used to leave the house without a camera in my purse, and I’d often go for long walks by myself snapping photos around whatever city I called home. Taking a photo was like capturing a fleeting moment, & that ability to freeze time catered to my creativity while keeping me humbled. Those were the days of flip phones & iPod shuffles. But then iPhones came out, & with it came Instagram. At first I remember being like “wow this is amazing, so many people are just like me!” but before long, that mindset shifted to “wow, so many people are just like me?!” Suddenly everyone was a photographer. Everyone shared their experiences, lives, & escapes. Social media can bring you together in a sea of similarities, but sometimes it’s easy to feel drowned within the waves. Feeling like I was “just another person who takes photos”, I hung up my camera. The longer I saw it collect dust on my shelf, the more intimidating it looked. I wasn’t a real photographer. I wasn’t like those perfect people on Instagram.
⚡️
Maybe it’s the fact I work at an arts school, or maybe it’s the dawn of a new season, but recently I picked up my camera again. I had no idea what to take. I felt lost. I felt doubtful. I felt dull. But suddenly I began to see the world through the lens again. I began to recognize those moments that were flashing by me, and I stopped to capture them. They were always there, I just had to look through the lens again. With every snap of the shutter, I could feel the creative wires in my mind spark to life again. So please remember, if you write, you’re a writer. If you paint, you’re a painter. If you play music, you’re a musician. If you take photographs, you’re a photographer. Follow your dreams & what makes you happy, because the world needs doers & dreamers & movers & shakers, and you can’t spark any flames by simply collecting dust.
