San Fran!

This is a pic of a huge mural that was painted on a wall in San Fran.

So last week I was in San Francisco visiting my good friend Gene! We had a blast! The city is pretty amazing. He showed me everything. It was really fun! We ate at teh In N Out Burger joint which was probably my fav place to eat. And some other restaurants that were really really good. I got a tattoo while I was out there too! It hurt pretty badly but my friend sat by me and kept me preoccupied so that helped.

Here's a pic of the new tat. And yes that is my right foot

So I've decided to take some more classes to get my special ed license. I love where I'm working which is a school for students with special needs. So, I am excited about pursuing that. Other than that I'm just training hard and tryin to get bigger!

And there is some new stuff in the members section so check it out!

Last night my friends and I celebrated our friend Brooke's 21st bday. Took her to dinner and then to Jillian's for arcade games and bowling. It was a really fun night for her! I didn't get home until about 5:30 in the a.m. So, I am a little tired!! But it was a fun night.

I have one more week substituting and hopefully I'll be able to stay on as a full-time teacher. I have also decided to go back to school to take a few more courses to get my special ed license since I have enoyed working with these kids so much. So, more school!

One more week til I get to see one of my favorite people in the whole world! I am so excited! I'm sure we will get into some trouble out there!
And there's some new stuff in the member's section from one of my shows last year where I won the middleweights. So until next time!

Sad sad weekend

So over the weekend, my good dear friend was in a horrible accident. He and a friend went boating and ended up flipping the boat. He told me that they were going pretty fast and hit a wake, lost control and flipped the boat, landing nose down in the water. The driver, whom I really didn't know, died unfortunately. It's just a really sad situation and I know my friend is really really upset about it. He's like a big brother to me so to see this happen to him really breaks my heart. But that's what's new here. Sorry to be so depressing. There should be some better news next time.

Happy Labor Day!

Well today is Labor Day so hope everyone gets to enjoy a day off. Went out to dinner with the fam to celebrate my brother and sister n law's 2nd anniversary. The place we ate at was this old-school Italian spot. So so good! Everyone there was super nice and it was just really good food. Then family birthday party on Sunday which was great. So, I ate a lot of cake this weekend and I laid out all weekend so now I am fried like a biscuit! It's fine though!

New offseason diet plan which so far I really like. My good friend Pete put it together for me and I know it will definitely give me the gains I want. He is wanting to get into contest prep so he is my diet guru!

Wednesday is my 27th birthday so all day I will eat and do WHATEVER the heck I want! I am never too old for that! Other than that, not much else is new!

New stuff in the members section so check it out. My webmaster has been continually putting a lot of stuff on there so it should be updated a lot.

Ok smell ya later!
P.S. Check out how hot my family is (above)!

Hey! Well, last night was my friend Tabitha's 30th birthday. She wanted to go to Jillian's which is a restaurant/bar/arcade/bowling alley type situation. It is a really fun place and we all got in touch with our inner-child there! We played games all night and just had a great time!

Here is a pic of the birthday girl, myself, and our friend Becky.

I have been hittin the gym intermittently and having great workouts. I am going to San Francisco at the end of September to see a very dear friend and one of my favorite people so I am pumped about that! He was kind enough to fly me out there! He's so good to me! I am very excited to see him! And my 27th birthday is in 2 weeks!!

And be sure to check out the updates to the members section! My first video is up! And this is my favorite picture of all! Our booties were too big to fit in the pic!!!! Ok well maybe it was mine that was too big! Holler!

Update to the members section

So, today I trained chest and it went well. I sort of felt like I pulled a pec muscle but I know I didn't. I just got some weird pain near my sternum but it's a muscle pain and nothing like I normally have. Oh well I guess! And I have definitely done something to my back cuz it hurts to bend over to the right to pick things up! I am such a wimp!

I volunteer in the nursery at my church so tonight they are putting on a dinner celebration for all the volunteers. So, I am stoked about it because I know the food will be good and they are raffling off prizes! And I will get to see some good friends!

Check out my members section because it has been updated with some new pics and I am sharing stories from Vegas. And trust me, the stories are great!

Enjoyin the summer!

Hey everyone! Well, I am enjoying my offseason and the summer. I had originally planned on doing USA's which is next weekend but I had to pull out of it because I was just miserable with my training and diet. I hated working out and I was just really really burnt out. So, in my best interest I decided to not do the show. I am still going to Vegas though and I will be at the show for sure. So, I promise to have some great pics for yas!

Now I get to enjoy my summer and boy have I been! I just started my boot camp this week and have been kickin the ladies' booties! They love it! It's rough getting up at 4 a.m. but it's so worth it. Other than training hard and eating I am just having more fun being able to hang out with my friends and family more often. I don't have the stress of having to practically live at the gym! Oh and the website is coming along! My webmaster is fantastic! I know he's gonna rock it out for me! Well, I will post after I get back from Vegas!

2nd Place Middleweights!!

So I just got back from Chicago where I competed at Jr. Nationals. I placed 2nd in middleweights and was so very very happy about it! I am really excited and had such a wonderful time. I met some really amazing women and just had a blast. Everyone was so nice and helpful and it was just a great show. Now I get to enjoy some fun foods but on Wednesday it's back to business to get ready for Indiana State and USA's!! Other than that I am just enjoying my second place finish! Here are a few pics from the weekend:

2008 Indianapolis Championships/My Graduation!

Hey there! Well it's gettin down to the last week and a half before Jr. Nationals. I feel like crap but I'm supposed to now! This past weekend a good friend of mine competed in the Indianapolis Figure Championships and placed 3rd in her class!!!! So stinkin proud of her! She looked awesome! Another of my friends placed 2nd in her class, another placed 3rd in hers, and one of my guy friends won his weight class! So all in all it was a successful weekend and I am so proud of all hte hard work these competitors put into their prep.

On Sunday my parents had a graduation party for me. It took all my willpower all day to avoid the humongous cake that was sitting out! They saved and froze a HUGE chunk of the cake for me so I will take advantage of that after all my shows are done! I am doing 3 shows this summer so it's a long long time of dieting but it's so worth it! Can't wait til Chicago!! Here are a couple pics from this past weekend including a pic of my cake I couldn't go near!

4 weeks out!

So here I am 4 weeks out from Jr. Nationals! I weight about 137 so I feel confident about making middleweights. My diet just changed which is rough but it is worth it. I am getting ready to celebrate my graduation from college with a party at my house! A pool party! I told my parents to pick the cake-whatever is their favorite cuz Lord knows I can't have any of it!

Today my friend Becky and I made shirts for our friend Jessica who is our coach. Jessica Wright is an IFBB figure pro and the hardest working individual I know. She has helped me through my training these past 16 weeks and has guided me through it all. So our shirts say "Wright Stuff!" Becky is 2 weeks out from the Indianapolis Figure Championships. She's lookin awesome!

I am getting really excited for my show and I know I will look even better than last year! Above is a quick shot from a shoot I did last year after winning Collegiate Nationals (2007).

New website

Hey there! This is my very first journal/blog for my new website! So excited about this! My webmaster is a genius and has been so good to me! He is working so hard right now to create a uniquely awesome website that will fit me to a "T"! My site is basically going to showcase my bodybuilding career with pictures, training videos, and updates on what I am doing.

Right now I am getting ready for Jr. Nationals. I am 5 weeks out as of today! I weigh just under 140 and I feel like I look better than I ever have which is exciting. Unfortunately, I do have a sinus infection that I have been fighting all week so hopefully by next Monday I will be back in full force. I will have plenty of time to get fully prepared so I am not too worried. Then after Jr. Nats will be USA's in Vegas! So this is a very exciting summer for me and I can't wait to share it with everyone!

Oh and I just recently graduated (a week ago actually)! After 8 years in school I finished with a degree in physical education and health. Totally suits me! ready to be able to celebrate that with my family and friends. But that will have to wait! I did get to have a cheat meal to celebrate it though. But other than that, I am just training and trying to get over this sinus thing. Hope you enjoy this first blog of mine and please check back for more updates and I will post progress pics too!
