I Miss Blogging: The Anti-Saga

Wow. I have not blogged in probably a year and a bit. I remember the days I would blog WEEKLY (and sometimes even multiple times a week!) Which leads me to wonder what content I was posting, lol. Quick recap of my life over the past ~year: I’ve been busy. Last time I blogged I…

Do You Even Bikini Prep/I Suck At Blogging: 8 WEEKS OUT

….I have left you like a jar of peanut butter with half a tablespoon left in the bottom that is too little to scoop out with a spoon (anything less than 6 tablespoons is just pointless to consume!) I’m sorry, my lovely followers. I have been insanely busy at work (Excuse #1), attempting a social…

3 Month Countdown: UFE Showdown

So I have an app on my phone that counts down to my competition (as I mentioned in my last post) and today it alerted me that it’s… 3 MONTHS UNTIL UFE SHOWDOWN. Holy hell, right? Most people would start their “cut” at the 12-weeks-out mark but my sexy coaches gave me a 14-week bikini…

Do You Even Bikini Prep?

This is going to be a new thing, I know it. #DYEBP I haven’t written a post in forever. (I FEEL LIKE I KEEP WRITING THIS SENTENCE.) I’m sorry – I get super busy with work, training, Cellucor demos, my ghost writing on the My Virtual Mission blog, SLEEPING, and trying not to be too much of…

#GlutesForTheBrutes: A Playlist

You want a sneak peek into the little buds screaming sweet nothings into my ears? Yeeaaaaah, you do. Here is a retrospective view into my musical tastes over the past year: April 2013 was my My Lots of Cardio, No Carbs Playlist (Can I laugh at people who do this now, or…? Nah.) February 2013 was A…

Ambition & My First Real Off-Season: #2014MyYear

Hello? Is this thing on? I haven’t written on this baby in over two weeks! And I can’t remember the last fitness-related post I wrote. (I’ve been a crazy whirlwhind of things and updates, so I guess this will be a hefty post.) And lucky for you, I don’t really have any new material to rant…

Yesterday I was one of a select group of lucky fitness-loving ladies to be invited to Inside Fitness Magazine‘s Women’s Training Guide Launch Party (available December 16!) at the exquisite Battle Arts Academy. It was an amazing afternoon of sweating and getting our butts kicked by the best fitness experts in the biz (totally made me…

An Open Letter to Girls Who Want to Rock a Bikini & Spray Tan

I know there are open letters oversaturating the interwebz right now ranging from Thought Catalog’s encyclopaedia to ones from Sinead O’Connor addressing sweet Miley. This letter is an important one. This is an open letter to all the girls who want to compete in a bikini competition. This is an open letter to all of the…

One #Blessed Blonde: UFE North American Championships 2013

Okay so I may or may not be hopped up on my first Starbucks in a week – take a guess! – but I am feeling #highonlife! If you’ve been creeping following my Instagram/Facebook feeds this weekend, you’ll know that I competed in the Elite Bikini and Fitness Model categories at the UFE North American Championships…

On Love & Loss: IDFA World Championships 2013

This past weekend, I competed in my second competition of this triple competition blitz I am going through right now: the IDFA World Championships & Pro Universe. Since I had placed top 5 at my very first competition – IDFA Novice Classic, four score and 100 years ago –  I was qualified to compete in…

My First Bash: UFE Halloween Mayhem 2013

What. A. Weekend. I honestly wanted to write a post yesterday but I was crazy overwhelmed with work and coming down from my competition high – I think they call it pure, unadulterated happiness? – so I finally have calmed down enough to post about the weekend’s shenanigans! UFE Halloween Mayhem was a freakin’ blast….

A Fitness Competitor’s To Do List: Extended Edition

  Soooo on Sunday evening, I posted a super brief “to do” list on my Facebook page giving a sneak peek into the tasks/errands/shit I have to do to prep in the final week before show day. In case you were curious (or, if you’re not, whatever – you’re creeping my blog, so you obviously care), I’ll be…
