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…

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: 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…

A Good Kind of Addiction

So I met with my coach last night at her new training studio, Sweatshop Union. It is gorgeous and awesome – I love it! The owner and founder, Brian, holds ass-kicking classes, including some glute-busting kickboxing classes that I have to check out. (And fitness babe, Justine Munro trains there too sometimes. She is the…

Post-Competition Blues

You read all of these blogs talking about people and their journeys into bodybuilding and healthy living and those are fantastic! You get motivated and inspired and it’s a lovely sense of community in the bodybuilding and competition world. But once the competition is over, the blog posts stop completely or they change gears to…

The Most Surreal Experience

Let me warn you, this will be a long blog post. So stop reading now if you don’t feel like creeping on my life any further. (But, I mean, you’ve made it this far anyways, so you might as well.) If you’ve been reading my blog posts for the past four months, you’ll know that…

Team Bunny!

Hello everyone! Yesterday was my competition and guess what? I place third place in my division (Novice Fitness Model – Short). I AM THE HAPPIEST GIRL IN THE WHOLE WORLD. I’ll post about my competition when I’m less wiped out – waking up for work was kind of a challenge this morning after being off…

2 More Sleeps

Sorry I’ve been MIA – crazy past few days! I’ve been off work since Tuesday and it’s been a nice vacation – I’d prefer the beach, but hey. On Wednesday, I did my upper body circuit at the gym with my 60 minutes of morning cardio, followed by my last minute grocery shopping and meal…

Everyone Loves a Quickie

…don’t you? Quick update! I get two more days of carbs! Hurray! All of you fitness competitors out there truly understand and know the joy that comes from this underappreciated blessing of the sweet potato and the oat. Why do I get two more days of carbs? Well, dearest plum of a reader, my coach…

Dialing In: 2 Weeks!

THIS IS IT. My competition is three weeks away. I cannot even believe it. It seems like my six week mark was just yesterday! Some updates: Booked my hair coloring appointment for the Thursday before. (These roots ain’t stage cute!) Booked my two spray tan sessions at Gold Tan for Thursday and Friday. (I am so…

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…
