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…

S.O.S.! Last Day of Carbs!

AIR HORN. AIR SIREN. WEOOOOOOOO. I have one more carb meal of the day until…. DUHN. DUHN. DUHN.  CARB DEPLETION. 8 glorious [sic] days of zero carbs and only eggs, tilapia and chicken breast. With my oils as “sauce”. #blessed This is my third time doing a carb deplete before a show and dare I…

Dating Diary Of A Fitness Competitor

…Okay, so it won’t be a diary, but I guess I could share a few…anecdotes. So I’m essentially 10 months into this fitness adventure and I have learned that dating as a (committed? Insane? Dedicated?) fitness competitor is different than when I was a “normal” person. Yeah you still have your jerks, players, boring guys,…

I’m-5-Weeks-Out-From-IDFA-Holy-Sh^t

I know I’ve always been talking about my UFE debut these past few posts, but I can’t forget that my main show is coming up too: IDFA World Championships and Pro Universe. I met up with Colleen last weekend and ordered my custom Crystal suit and I. COULD. NOT. BE. MORE. EXCITED. I pick it up…

SIX WEEKS OUT: UFE Halloween Mayhem

I was bullied into writing a new post by Casey and Justin – SO HERE IT IS. I also figured I should keep with tradition and write a pre-competition post. Blah-zay-blah, I’m six weeks out from my next competition and let’s just say I am feeling fan-freaking-tastic. I have some pretty sick, two-weeks-out type of…

Fitness Star World Championships 2013

It’s 5:30AM at the Cosmopolitan Hotel and the sun hasn’t begun to peek over the buildings, but it’s time to get our dehydrated booties up. Daniella and I have been waking up every hour on the hour, worrying about streaking our fresh spray tan. It’s show day, baby! Hair, tan, make-up –  the final steps which…

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…

Fitness Star World Championships: 4 Weeks Out!

Hello sweet peaches! It’s been two weeks since my last post – I don’t want you guys to get bored of my journey since I’ll be posting about my next ones as well! This dial in has been way easier than my last one – what are no carb days? Easy as pie, baby cakes!…

Six Weeks Out: Fitness Star World Championships 2013

Did you guys miss me or what? I’ve been too busy to blog – gasp – and frankly, not feeling too inspired to do so! So as my super creative blog title says, I am now a little under six weeks out from the Fitness Star World Championships. This time around, training has been different…
