It was a great feeling and propelled me into the fitness industry to share my passion with clients. Changing their lives as fitness changed mine. … Continue reading

Today is the day! 2012 NGA North American Pro/Am in Schenectady, NY. I have been dieting and prepping for this day for so long that it felt like it would never actually come.  Like it was a dream that would never come to fruition and that I would always just be “in preparation” of.

Travel Time

Sorry I missed my Final Countdown Day 1 post yesterday… it was quite a busy day getting things in order. Yesterday was the icing on the cake for me.  My spirit is revitalized and I feel amazing. I stuck to my meal plan during the day, got in a few “Last Chance” workouts as they … Continue reading

So I’m not entirely sure why… And I am terribly disappointed in myself… Buit that didn’t stop it from happening.

Not every day can be your best day…

Today I fell flat… and I’m not just referring to when I slipped on ice outside my house this morning.  I can honestly say that this was my most pathetic workout performance over the last 5 1/2 weeks. It’s not because my trainer didn’t work me hard.  It’s not because I didn’t want it.  Not … Continue reading
