  • FREE.  FREEDOMMMMM!!!! SUFFERING IS OPTIONAL!!! BE FREE! So many things going through my head today. Remember this, BE FREE. Forgive and be free. Love and be free. Decide and be FREE!! So many things happen to all of us and we decide what it means. So much of my pain is self inflicted because I beat myself up about nearly EVERYTHING that's not perfect (or shall I say how I want it to be) in my life. Let's practice assigning positive meanings to the things that we are struggling with. You didnt get that job? Good. It wasn't for you. Or maybe you weren't ready. You didn't get that account? Good. Maybe you couldn't have handled it. Let's be thankful for where we are. And not only thankful for what we have, but also thankful for what we dont have that may unbeknownst to us might CRUSH us. Let's CRUSH what's going on in our heads and bring it into SUBMISSION and say, "THIS WILL MAKE ME STRONGER" , "THIS WILL IMPROVE MY CHARACTER", "THIS WILL MAKE ME MORE COMPASSIONATE AND/OR HUMBLE", "THIS IS MY PROVING GROUND AND THE PATH TO MY DREAM, MY DESTINY". #battlecry #breakout LET'S GO BABY, LET'S GO!!! ✊🏽

  • Introducing our sponsors. Breakout Bar is generously giving all campers Breakout Bites for healthy eating on-the-go. Each package contains two bites made with real ingredients you can pronounce like organic oats, whey protein isolate, raw honey, cacao, sunflower butter, sea salt and cinnamon. They are not GF-certified but are gluten-friendly. We love the sea salt-coconut and chocolate chip cookie dough. Both of which will be included in campers’ welcome kits. Thank you @breakoutbar and @thatonegirlsteph10 for supporting Bodd Camp. 👊 #boddcamp #breakoutbar

  • LIVE. Just talking to myself here. Because while i'm saying this outwardly to the world, i'm saying it to myself because life has been ROUGH y'all for quite some time. But you know, I believe every word i'm saying. And it's through BELIEF and consistent ACTION from iterative learning that we CONQUER. We have to know that we were created for more. We have to consistently remind ourselves that there's a promise ahead. And never forget that the present circumstances are meant to prepare us for a permanent opulent future. It's the darkest right before the breaking of light. We will reap if we faint not!!! So keep pushing, keep believing, and keep LIVING!!! LIVE FREE! BREAKOUT #encourage #encourageyoself

  • Today is a day of remembrance. A day of reflection. 🇺🇸
18 years ago today we lost 3,000 people, injured over 6,000, and caused over $10 million in property damages. Additionally, many people died in the months to come from 9/11 related cancers or respiratory diseases. 
Tomorrow is not promised. We must continue to live each day like it’s our last. Want More. Do More. Be More. Every day! 👊🏼

  • BODY. 💪🏽 "What the mind conceives the body can achieve." - Unknown (by me) -

We are all creators. What are you creating? What are you dreaming of doing, making, having?  Whatever THAT THING IS it often times comes at a cost, some pain, or struggle. But the results can be mo'betta 😉 than you originally imagined. - 
But FIRST, it starts with what you're mind conceives. Here's a little workout from my mind that has helped me achieve some of the results I wanted for my back strength, and endurance.

Pullups x 10 Reps
Reverse Grip Shrugs x 10 Reps
Neutral Grip Pull Ups x 10 Reps
Machine Row x 10 Reps ...Do FOUR ROUNDS and with less than 30 seconds of rest between sets. Rest for 60-90 seconds between rounds. If you try it, let me know how you like it. 👊🏽💪🏽

  • MIND:  It takes time. It takes discipline. And it takes longer than you think. I'm not a millionaire/billionaire with this amazing story of so many lives i've impacted and wisdom to impart on how you TOO can do what i've done (YET). But I am in that struggle and I'm in THAT fight. And while I haven't "arrived" at any notable place that should make you pay attention to me, I am clear that I want to help people live better lives by encouraging them to eat better, think better, and be active. #breakout (Nourish the mind, body, and soul.) I want to be a reminder to myself and all of what we ALL are capable of accomplishing. And while I havent achieved some of my larger goals/dreams, I have accomplished others BECAUSE I STARTED. I AM IN PURSUIT. And I encourage you all to get started!!! And no matter how hard that pursuit gets, let us persevere and OVERCOME. And we will overcome if we dont quit. If you would like to know more about our biggest struggles making the best snacks on the planet @breakoutbar comment below. Or if you'd like to share some of your biggest challenges, comment...let's share. BREAKOUT solutions!!! #bettertoday #businessbuilder #entrepreneur

  • Some of us worked out the clues, some of us fluked the shit, one fulla was trying to unlock a ‘key’ hole with a chess piece, one was feeling around on walls for who knows what, the confusion of the riddles, leaving behind valuable clues in other rooms to progress further, some just stood there & didn’t know what was going on, on hands & knees crawling around in the dark expecting to get stabbed or killed somehow like in certain movies...But we escaped!😂🤙🏾#breakoutbar #escaperoom #alittlecreepy #siblings #brothers #love #groupactivity #goodtimes #goodvibes #hilarious

  • To live with the regret of pain is the worst pain in life by far. The pain of failure hurts no matter what walk of life you’re in whether it’s work,family, relationships, or any personal goal you could achieve. This throwback Thursday picture goes back to October of 2018 at Memphis Muscle. I didn’t place like I wanted too at this show. No fault of my own or really anyone else, unbelievable competition showed up and that is where the chips landed that day. The pain of failure that day sucked. However it motivated me to comeback and go for the Win next time I take the stage. If I would not have done Memphis Muscle I would be living with the greatest pain ever and that would be regret. Take advantage of time you can’t get it back and live life with no regret. #naturalbodybuilding #throwbackthursday #IPE #NGA #MemphisMuscle #Hunterbodies #Goals #comebacktrail #fitfam #breakoutfitnessstl #breakoutbar #1stopsupplements

  • Did you know we make our own chocolate? 🤔

We use cacao to create our delicious dark chocolate! 🥰

Here are just SOME benefits of cacao:
◾️Cacao is one of the richest sources of polyphenols. It’s especially abundant in flavanols, which have potent antioxidants and anti-inflammatory effects. ◾️Flavanols can cross the blood-brain barrier and are involved in the biochemical pathways that produce neurons and important molecules for the better function of your brain.
◾️The positive effects on mood may be due to cocoa’s flavanols, the conversion of tryptophan to the natural mood stabilizer serotonin. 
Now that you’re convinced chocolate made from cacao is a must in your diet .... let’s get stocked up on BREAKOUT 🤪

  • *Day Two- Christmas Island*

Wake up. Coffee. Breakfast. Guides. Trucks. Same start, the only difference on this day was we would not be driving the truck to the marine. This day we were heading into the “backcountry.” During our first evening on the island, Head Guide Bita let us know that our group had two days reserved for the backcountry during our time on the island. This means one of two things… you head to the Preserve for the day or head to the Korean Wreck. Instead of taking the boats on these days, we were looking at spending roughly two hours in the back of a truck, on a wooden seat, navigating the bumpy roads of Kiritimati. 
After splitting with the full group, @Chrisclogston, @forrest.baney, @action.johnson and @papa_hamburglar and I rode together in the back of the truck, struggling to hear the Bluetooth music as we cruised down the road. On the way there, we stopped at picked up the Gatekeeper for the Preserve. The Preserve is essentially the Christmas Island version of a National Park. We had to pay an extra $10 per person to access this area. 
I split off with Chris and Forrest once we arrived to the Preserve. Today, they were after the elusive Giant Trevally. We walked the shoreline for HOURS. There was a bit of miscommunication between the guide and I. I had brought my camera pack and my @pelican case in the truck and gathered that we would be fishing near the truck. This was NOT the case… I ended up humping around my case and my pack for over 12 miles of walking. Not a huge deal. Just not ideal! 
Chris and Forrest had a few GT come out of the depths onto a shallow flat. You can see @chrisclogston dodging the fish as they TURBO charged their feet in one of the images. This was the one true shot at GTs on the flats that I was able to witness. We later connected with Ryan and Jeff at the Huff Dam. Jeff was able to hook into a large GT that ended up bending his hook. This was the bit of action I was able to catch this day. 
Fishing on this day, not the best. Not the worst. But hey, its fishing.

  • 🇰🇮 Kiritimati or Christmas Island🇰🇮⁣
⁣
⁣
For the past 5 years, I have worked with @flyandfieldoutfitters in one aspect or the other. @cookcranebow presented me with the opportunity to head down to Christmas Island and learn the ways of hosting a trip and capture some photos of the adventure. Our trip was through @flywatertravel and we began our planning in June of 2018. The week that was secured was March 11th-March 29th 2019. A nice way to break up the winter and get to the tropics. I reached out to 3 of my fishing buddies who I knew had the itch to fish for species and was up for the adventure.⁣
⁣
⁣
Reluctantly, @action.johnson @chrisclogston and @forrest.baney committed right off the bat. I was also excited to have @papa_hamburglar , a brilliant scientist whom I had fished with before, join us! He also happens to be Ryans uncle. ⁣
After months of planning, departure day drew closer and the anticipation was itching at all of us.  The preparation took a few weeks. Organizing gear, sorting camera gear, tying flies (for some, not me), rigging reels, purchasing adequate flats boots, snacks, arranging antibiotics, etc. Fortunately, @flywatertravel provides thorough details and instruction for a successful trip to this remote, sub-third world destination.⁣
⁣
⁣
We left Redmond, Oregon around 3 am to begin our trek to the Island. As the crow flies, it is 3,654 miles from Bend. There is only one flight per week in and out of Christmas Island. Each Tuesday, or Wednesday if you are on Christmas Island. Our travels took us to Honolulu for a quick evening, then we were off. ⁣
⁣
⁣
These images are from our journey to Christmas Island and from our first evening. The sunset the first night was unreal and I was able to catch a few local boys body surfing, our first taste of the island cuisine, and the guys rigging their 8, 10, and 12 weight rods. ⁣
⁣
Stay tuned for the following days on Christmas Island and the fish we crossed paths with... #christmasisland #kiritimati #flywatertravel #flyandfieldoutfitters #stiomountain #buffusa #umpquafeathermerchants #fullingmill #redingtongear #echoyflyfishing #lairdssuperfood #breakoutbar #strikeforceenergy

If you recall, the day before we had been blown off the flats because of an incoming front that was delivering buckets of water.  This morning started a bit the same, stronger winds than other days, cooler flats, and a semi-fierce looking front that quickly approached. Much like the afternoon before, we did have a bit of rain delay after being blown off again. 
Once the front passed over, the clouds dispersed a bit, and we were able to get back to sight fishing. Scott Lewis decided to devote his morning to chasing Triggers. Chasing is a key word here! We came across 25-30 BEAUTIFUL trigger on one flat. It was quite incredible, all of different colors and sub-species, some that looked to be pushing 10 pounds or so. Scott was given one or two shots at feeding triggers; alas, the triggers swam freely. 
After shuffling across the flat, we reconvened for a pb+j with water adequately mixed with @lairdsuperfood coconut Hydrate and hit the surf side of the island, with the anticipation of connecting with trevally or two. Scott Cook stuck a nice bonefish in the shallows then minutes later; Spicy Scott stuck beautiful bluefin trevally! They also stuck a few other species that lingered around.

The best part about this day for me was bobbing around the surf with my @aquatech_imagingsolutions housing.  Swimming has always been something I enjoyed, but swimming with my camera??! Next level fun!!! Also, I was able to learn many things about shooting in my housing this day. 
After returning to the lodge, we rested up, cracked beersm, and swapped daily fishing stories. @chrisclogston and I snuck down the beach for a few minutes so he could get a little taste of surf fishing! 
With 4 out of 6 fishing days completed, folks began to hone in their angling goals for the remainder of the week...
