Good morning Bloomers,
It feels so good to be back! So much change has happened over the last three months, it’s like, where do I begin?! For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you know I haven’t completely been away. I still do my morning workouts and share my newest routines on Instagram story and some highlights\ updates on Bloom. Fitness is a big part of my life and any tips I can give to my followers brings me joy! While we are on the subject of fitness I wanted to share supplements (vitamins, pre-workout and metabolism formula) that I use religiously that helped me lean out after bulking up to gain more curves.
I started my health and fitness journey almost 3 years ago in August and It was one of the best journeys I have ever embarked on. It hasn’t been the easiest change, but I couldn’t imagine it not being my lifestyle today. Fueling my body with the best vitamins, nutrients, and exercise has really maximized my life overall and helped increase my energy level; my anxiety has significantly reduced; I sleep more soundly; my confidence has increased; and overall, my strength and endurance are at peak levels. I’m in the best shape of my life! I can talk about the health benefits all day, but I’ll save all of that for another post.
Let me start off by saying that I was completely clueless when I started my fitness journey. Yes, your girl didn’t have the slightest clue about what to do! Aside from running track in high school, I had no knowledge when it came down to lifting weights or proper nutrition. Luckily for me, I was fortunate enough to have access to a personal trainer/chef, that helped mold my thought process/thinking in the beginning. Trey gave me nutritional tips and taught me the importance of understanding what’s really in my food by breaking down all the information provided on the nutrition labels. I was able to start breaking down my macros and understand what fuel my body needed to push through that difficult last rep. Believe me, I would have been lost without him initially guiding me and it would have certainly taken me longer to get on track with everything. I don’t have a problem committing or staying consistent, but it can be extremely overwhelming when trying to learn something new without any assistance; with that said, that is one of the reasons why I started Bloom. I want to continue sharing beneficial information that I have learned that has helped me significantly and that can help support Bloom followers physically and mentally.
With that being said, I wanted to address the question that I get asked often. “What type of supplements do you take”? Let me first say, I’m not a dietitian, nurse or doctor, I’m simply here on Bloom sharing what has worked for me and to give you insight. Take what you like and leave what you don’t.
I tried Tru Supplements 1 year ago at LA Fit Expo and really didn’t start using it on a consistent basis up until 4 months ago. I starting noticing that after 8 months of bulking, Tru Supplements helped me lean out and achieve my desired results and helped me maintain more powerful workouts. I absolutely love this brand because there’s no soy, no artificial flavors, no heavy metals, wheat free, gluten free, non-GMO. It’s 100% plant based and there are no toxic ingredients.

Alongside with proper nutrition and exercise, this is the secret weapon to maintain a leaner and meaner physique without crash diets, over-exercising, or crazy gimmicks. This means that if you have a solid workout regimen and nutrition plan in place, you WILL LOSE FAT FASTER than ever before. I gained 12 pounds during my bulk, I managed to lose 7% of fat and get back down to 15% body fat. If you would like me to do a blog post on my bulk journey let me know.
Getting in amazing workouts on a consistent basis can be the make or break to your success in reaching your goals. Somedays I just don’t feel as good as others, but Tru energy helps me get the most out of every workout without having to hurt my body with fake stimulants and an overload of artificial sweeteners and colors.
I take multi-vitamins every day because it fills in the gap when I’m not getting all my micronutrients in my meals daily. Tru vitamins bridge the gap between our food intake and many essential nutrients that optimize our bodies systems of metabolism, immunity, recovery and even joint health.
