MOTIVATION – A Hardbody Takes Work

If you want a HARDBODY you’re going to have to work. It won’t be easy but it will be worth it. It’s starts with believing  you CAN and knowing you WILL. You CAN do it. You Will do it. Visualize it. Today is the perfect day to set new goals. Remember this poem by Walter Wintle, “Whether you think you can or you can’t you’re probably right”.

hard work

If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you don’t,
If you like to win, but you think you can’t
It is almost certain you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are
You’ve got to think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins

– Walter D. Wintle

She currently cheers for the Atlanta Hawks and is prepping for her first trip to the Arnold Sports Festival where she will be a contender in the Bikini Internationals

This photo has become one of the more popular photos on as I receive emails on a weekly basis asking who it is. Mainly because people have taken the photo and put their own words over it, which is fine and dandy but they crop off the watermark/copyright. Not so dandy. Any whoo, now you can PIN this image and let everyone know who she is. You can see Juliana compete in Columbus and stay updated with her via facebook.
