A long time coming…

I must apologize for my more than brief hiatus. Let’s catch up a little. I’m still living in New York and have not so surprisingly found myself jumping back into the fitness profession. The last few months I have acted as a Membership Consultant for a prominent fitness club, but February has me diving head … Continue reading

Putting Things in Perspective

My Figure coach the great Terry Stokes shared a post yesterday about one of his national competitors that just had a show this past weekend titled “Shut up… Become a Champion”. What a wake up call! It definitely made me realize a few things. I attacked this process with a different mindset the first time … Continue reading

“Cranky When Hungry”

I don’t know about other competitors, but I should definitely come with the disclaimer “Cranky when hungry”… The hardest part of training for a show is not making it to the gym. That’s the easy part. That’s the part we are all slightly addicted to. What can make or break a competitor (in my opinion) … Continue reading

So I admit I indulged in a few sweets Saturday at my friends birthday party. I didn’t have much and definitely no where near how much I would eat when I used to cheat on my diet… But nevertheless my scale is moving in the wrong direction.

Show Time in Toronto

Feeling a little nostalgic… This weekend was all about the 2012 IDFA International Championship near Toronto Canada. No, I wasn’t competing. But I will say that being there made me wish I was! I took the trip to support some of my fellow Stokes girls and help my friend Andrea calm her nerves and make … Continue reading

Competition Recap – Saturday aka C-Day

Here is a crazy thought… Exactly one month ago I was super tan standing on a stage in front of a few hundred people in an extremely expensive suit that had less material then my beach ware! Saturday aka C-Day aka 2012 NGA North American Pro/AM 🙂 After my grotesque binging the night before I … Continue reading

For those of you who followed my Twitter and Facebook page you were able to go through some of my competition day experience with me through the … Continue reading
