One of my mantras this year is "Do less with more focus." That little sentence is EVERYTHING to me, and something I believe God has been wanting me to do for a long time. I am only 1 person, and I cannot give myself 100% to 19839357485094 different things. I feel like a lot of … Continue reading Thursday Thoughts
Hey lovelies! A short blog post just to share a few of my current favorite things! List below with links to check them out! ❤ The Seaweed Bath Co. Citrus Vanilla body wash Purchased from Target.

Can you get by without it? Sure you could-- but it does make baking more conducive to your macronutrient goals (future blog posts coming as I experiment with different recipes!), gives you the opportunity to make smoothies that are high in protein (who doesn't love smoothies?), and above all- IT'S FAST AND CONVENIENT.

I knew I wanted to do a post that helped people the most I possibly could, and as much as I love sharing my competition … Continue reading Where do I start with my nutrition?
Helllooo there and happy Tuesday! I wanted to post this video on my Instagram but it was too long 😦 It's just a little "get to know Elyse" video. Look for more videos and posts on my blog in the coming months about life stuff... how I stay motivated, nutrition and workout methods that I've … Continue reading A little About Elyse
I finished out my last show of the season with the best I've brought to the stage yet. I honestly could not have brought a better package this year... it was my leanest and best presentation to date. I've improved ever single time I've stepped on stage since my first competition in April of 2015. … Continue reading Mid Atlantic Classic 2016
This photo displays months of dieting and it IS an extreme-- being this lean is not maintainable and it took me about 3 months of a caloric deficit to get there.
