Prepare to be overwhelmed with a ton of catch-up posts. So in case anyone is wondering what on earth I've been doing the last month and a half that's turned me into a ghost, here you go! And if you weren't wondering, here you go anyway!
Went on a 500 mile motorcycle adventure through the mountains and up into northern West Virginia for my buddy's bachelor weekend! The most beautiful weekend adventure in the motorcycle in a long time.

Had an incredible #sundayfunday with my wonderful fiancée. @tnwilliams12 decided she wanted to spoil me today so as a total surprise to me we slept in, did donuts for breakfast, went on a run through the woods, played frisbee for almost 2 hours, pet all the puppies in the park, picked pumpkins, and then finished the day off with test drives at the local Harley Davidson dealership. I chose the Street Glide, she picked the Fat Bob. I like the Glide the best! But not as much as I love my girl!

So I've been quiet about it for a while cause I'm still kinda steaming at myself for not doing everything in my power to be ready for the #jaycutlerclassic2017 but on a positive note I learned a TON about my body and how to be better prepared for next time around, and if all I can take away is more knowledge than it was all worth it to me.
As for my fiancée @tnwilliams12 I could not be more proud! She absolutely crushed the competition and took first place in her class. She is the epitome of dedication and hard work and it shows. Looking forward to the next time around!

Beautiful days like today make me want to get back outside! I was gonna say something about having a good work life balance, finding something you love outside of work, pursue it, etc, but I don't know how to be motivational right now so basically just go have fun!

These hot days make me miss the crystal clear water and sugar white sand! Can we just go back to the Bahamas @tnwilliams12 ?! We can stay as long as you want!

Crushing a nice ab day today, working on my body saws forwards and laterally, only to realize that my lats are super weak and I couldn't extend worth a darn. Thankfully I had @_pheaa for me to laugh with as she made it look super difficult!

Had to hit a flashback Friday to one of the best days of my life. I loved you with all my heart then, and even more with every day that's passed. Can't wait to go back and tie the knot @tnwilliams12

As crazy as the week has been I'm definitely missing the peace of the Caribbean! It's been freaking hot enough here though, all I need is these beautiful waters to jump into with my #swolemate

Last morning on the island with @tnwilliams12 waving goodbye to the beautiful Caribbean ocean. Don't worry, we'll be back before we know it!

I love being back in the house with my fiancée, I missed my truck, I missed my motorcycle more, and I'm very glad to be home. But if someone gave me a free plane ticket I'd be gone again tomorrow. Take me back to the island! -prepare to be overwhelmed with drone footage posts btw-

My #wcw goes out to this beautiful woman with whom I got to spend an entire amazing week in paradise! Translation : this incredible woman braved spending a full 7 days literally trapped on a small island with me, in the middle of nowhere, and with no way to escape my craziness.
My vacation, my everyday, and my entire life wouldn't be complete without you my love. Thank you for always being by my side no matter what @tnwilliams12

The highlight of the weekend was hands down my buddy's wedding, but having an excuse to get out on the sand with the new Taco was definitely second. Last one I swear, but it was so my fun I couldn't help but share! Also it's #tacotuesday !!!!! #tacoma #nittotires #nittoterragrapplers #Nittos #toyota #toyotafamily #toyotatuesday #trdpro #4x4 #tacomatrdpro #beachdrive #offroad #stance #sandybeach #4x4

Got to take the Taco out on the beach for a sandy Saturday joyride! I've had a few 4wd vehicles but I've never had the opportunity to put one through the sand and it was a total blast. Totally worth the drive to get out there! Those #Nittos chewed the beach up for sure too. I might have liked my FJ but I'm quickly falling in love with this Tacoma

Got to put these bad boys to some good use yesterday! First time I've ever been able to take a truck to the beach and drive around, and the Nittos tore that sand up

Just wanted to show what consistency, hard work, and most importantly having an amazing coach can do for you. Through very stressful times where workouts have been nearly nonexistent, when Taco Bell called my name every night, and work took what seemed like all my time. My fiancées and my coach has been there for all of it to keep me on track and keep me working hard! Thank you so much @amandafitchick and @official_team_legacy for making me stick to my guns.
The pic on the left is when you met me in April of last year, and the pic on the right is today. Same shirt, same stupid grin, but 1 year, and 30lbs difference. You took me from 190 up to a mean 220!! Looking forward to what you can help me bring to the stage this summer!! #gainz #amazingcoach #swolders #gunshow #biceps #physique #pecpoppin #pecsfordays #igotgains #220lbs #summerbod #leanandmean

I missed #wcw so I'm gonna hit y'all with a #tbt, back to when @tnwilliams12 was slinging lead downrange!! Look at that brass flying! Next mod is to lighten her trigger some so she can stay more accurate with each pull. Keep on shooting my badass baby!! 😍

Been trying to work on my complexes more and trying to cycle a heavier and heavier barbell comfortably. Playing with 225 for 10 sets of a deadlift, power clean, squat clean complex, this is the last one

I gotta say this was the first time playing with one of these and it was AWESOME! Every bit as difficult as it's made out to look, but tons of fun. Also I don't think my biceps have felt so pumped ever before. Added into the routine IMMEDIATELY.
@tnwilliams12 and @amandafitchick I can't wait to see you try and scramble up this thing!

This grody day is definitely making me miss some sun and fun at the range! This was a nice slomo from sighting in the #300blackout with the supersonic rounds. Trying to get better at recoil management, pulling with the correct part of the trigger finger, holding the grip correctly, and some other stuff I don't even remember. Who says an old dog can't learn new tricks?
Been watching too much of @lucastrexarms and @amandakries on here lately, and I definitely need to step up my game.

Wanted to wish a truly happy Valentine's Day to the strongest woman I know! She is strong, sweet, talented, passionate, and I have no idea why but she is crazy about me and puts up with all my stupidity. I wouldn't be where I am now without her love and support.

This past weekend was the 2 year anniversary of me and the most incredible woman in the world meeting! It marked the best day of my life, when this incredible, beautiful, strong woman walked into my life and asked me for my phone number and changed my entire world. Her smile, her laughter, and the love she gives me every day is the most amazing thing I have ever experienced and I couldn't possibly be happier. At least that's what I thought. But every day since the day I met her marks the new best day of my life. From the day I met her, to the day she said yes, to today, every day has been that much richer with her in my life. She gives me so much love, and I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with her!! Thank you for being mine @tnwilliams12 !! #engaged #swolemates #loveofmylife #fiancèe #bestdayever #twowonderfulyears #soontobelaffoon

Sometimes a boys just gotta have fun. Doing donuts in the snow. For like, literally an hour. Wishing I had my baby with me, but then again @tnwilliams12 doesn't really understand why this is so much fun. Haha she'd probably just get sick.

Finally breaking some PRs on my most aggravating lift, hitting 435 for some touch and go deadlifts! #hookgrip holding up strong for me, who needs to feel their thumbs anyway? Probably not the smartest to #tng but oh well, 8 sets of 3 reps weren't going to pick themselves up.
