Figured I would see what all the fuss was about as I was needing a pick me up! I’ve been seeing these blended americanos with only sugar free French vanilla added (no cream or milk even though it looks like it) being posted around social media by fitness gurus like @mishkadawn and @mshelllll so I added a little twist by having them put in some cinnamon before blending and muah! πŸ˜šπŸ‘Œ Muy bien! Delicioso! Can hate on a guy for getting a “girly drink” in some peoples opinions but I don’t really care when it’s something that tastes that good being low calorie! πŸ˜πŸ‘ #fitness #igfitness #fat2fit #fatloss #expert #npc #natural #starbucks #americano #happy #smile #positive #life #recovery #postsurgery #livelifetothefullest #coffee (at Starbucks)

What’s up #fitfam I am 5 days post-surgery right now and am feeling better, but definitely feeling the almost full week of not doing anything and am going about crazy already! I am craving a workout badly! I went for a slight walk last night because I needed some fresh air. Also not near as lean or as full as before but doing well overall! Hopefully getting my drain tubes out tomorrow too! #fitness #bodybuilding #natural #npc #igfitness #ig_transformations #inspiration #fat2fit #fatloss #expert #fatlossjourney #motivation #dedication #determination (at The Bluestem)

Adversity allows you to showcase your greatest qualities of patience, persistence, positivity, and creativity. One can overcome adversity in a magnitude of ways, but the most important thing is that you understand ANY adversity CAN be overcome by you as long as you truly believe in yourself and fully put your mind to the tasks at hand! You can do anything you want in life with the right mindset and determination no matter what life throws your way! #happy #health #healthcoach #fitfam #fitness #fat2fit #fatloss #expert #dedication #determination #inspiration #ig_transformations #igfitness #positive #smile #motivation #npc #physique #bodybuilding #neversettle #1stphorm #legionofboom #1stphorm4life #goals #success  (at Holiday Inn Express Omaha West-90th Street)

Thanks for the constant love and worry from everyone! Surgery went well, took only 1 hour 20 min but recovery took 2 hours due to my lack of sleep the past week! So I’ve been sleeping a lot today and my throat is a little sore from the breathing tube so sorry to those who called or wanted to talk on the phone. I will be more open to talking tomorrow. Pain isn’t terrible right now with my pain meds either and I still have an appetite! At a little the first 4 hours and had a lot more the next 4 hours. Had to stay an extra day for a follow up tomorrow morning as well so I’ll just be chilling watching some TV and sleeping all day haha. Possibly may be able to get my drain tubes out earlier than later as well which would be great! Still have to do the daily blood thinner shots though for the first 8 days. Lots of precautions down here at surgical images in Omaha, NE, but overall impressed with how things went! Will find out in probably a couple weeks whether I may need a follow up for some reconstruction surgery so I’ll try to keep y’all posted!

Ended up bringing my mom for her first time to the Cheesecake Factory last night for what you could say was my “last meal” haha. It was phenomenal! Here we go for surgery now! #fitfam #fitness #healthcoach #health #positive #happy #smile #surgery

What’s up #fitfam! Been driving since 1am for the last 7 hours and finally home! So just updating everyone for those that don’t know I’m having surgery tomorrow morning in Omaha, NE for gynocomastia which came about during my adolescence and worsened with my weight gain/loss so I’m finally going to get it taken care of because it’s the last major obstacle in my way for me reaching my dreams and goals. Sucks in a way because I’m feeling amazing right now in my workouts and my progress at an all time high; but this surgery will put me out of the gym for almost a month. However, I’m not too worried because I know I have a great support system with my friends and family, plus my fellow teammates of #FokkenStrongTraining and my coach/mentor/friend @brandanfokken helping guide me through the process of getting back to where I am now in no time at all! As I said yesterday, life will always throw obstacles your way. It’s your decision on how to deal with them and to overcome them or not. As for me, you know damn well I won’t let a little surgery get me down! πŸ’ͺπŸ˜‰πŸ‘ #health #fitness #fat2fit #fatloss #expert #shieldsofstrength #healthcoach #happy #smile #positive #love #dedication #motivation #inspiration #surgery #igfitness #npc #physique #bodybuilding (at Rock Rapids, Iowa)

When I’m working out, I’m not just “moving iron” so to say. I’m also lifting the weight of obstacles life throws my way off of me. Working out has way more benefits than just the physical aspects of it. If I didn’t work out, I would not be near the positive charismatic person I am today! There have been plenty of times where I had my will and temper tested (especially being a bartender on the side of my fitness work) where I didn’t lose my temper because I have the amazing stress reliever of being physically active usually in some way on a day basis! It just a makes you feel so much better each day you do it, people! It definitely isn’t easy when you first start or on days where you are extremely busy or tired; but it is always worth it in the end! Life will always throw obstacles at you, it’s your choice on how to overcome them. Some drink, some gamble, some bike, some do yoga, some smoke, and some take it out in the gym. It’s your life so you can pick your potion. I’m just here to say I’m happy with the potion I picked! πŸ˜‰πŸ‘Œ #happy #text2pic #bodybuilding #npc #fitness #fitfam #life #overcomeobstacles #inspiration #dedication #smile #motivation #fat2fit #fatloss #expert #health #healthcoach #trainer #workout #igfitness #life #positive  (at Spearfish, S.D)
