Once Upon A UFE Workshop

So there were these two blonde girls. One was short and one was tall. They were like, “Yo, let’s go to this UFE Workshop, because I hear you can learn a ton of cool stuff there!” So these two girls went and these two girls DID learn a ton! I had heard good things about…

10 Days Out: A Cake-Less, Booze-Less Birthday

TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY. So it only seemed appropriate that I write a post. It is also 10 (well, nine and a half now) days out from Fitness Star World Championships. And it is my second (out of seven) days of carb depletion. Now this is my second competition, so the end is not as…

Post-Competition Blues

You read all of these blogs talking about people and their journeys into bodybuilding and healthy living and those are fantastic!

But once the competition is over, the blog posts stop completely or they change gears to…

The Most Surreal Experience

If You’re A Gym Person

The Hurricane That Is My Life

It’s been 11 days since I’ve posted my last blog post. Miss me? That is how crazy my life has been. And it’s not slowing down anytime soon! Updates:  I’m four weeks out from my competition (my coach says it’s three. I think she’s not counting my days of zombiedom during the last week before…

No Carb Day: Dazed and Unenthused

It’s cold. It’s dark. It is: THE DAY THERE WAS NO CARBS. I’ve always had low carb days during the week. But I’ve never had a zero carb day until the past few weeks. Now that I’ve started dialing in, I have a few no carb days a week. But Sunday is probably the worst…

Week 1.5: My Legs Are On Fire

Hey hey hey! Updates on the fitness model training front: Eating and food prepping and eating and food prepping and eating and food prepping LOTS OF EGGS AND OATS. SWEET HOLY KIMYE, IT’S A LOT OF EGGS AND OATS. I met with my coach on Saturday at my gym, so she could do a quick…

My Journey: The Beginning

Hello, TGIF! So I think I mentioned something like grabbing life by the balls or horns or something and said I wanted to try a fitness competition. UFE HALLOWEEN MAYHEM 2013, baby! I did some research and I am seriously getting the ball rolling on this one. I haven’t officially registered yet for the competition,…
