Xmas is coming!

Hey there! Well it's been waaaay too long! Sorry I haven't posted in forever, I was just being lazy!

Ok so here's what I have been up to:

I finished up the year with Nationals in Miami and I placed 12th out of 26. I was pretty happy with my placing because it was a tough competition. I ended up putting on some extra muscle in between USA's and Nats so I was stoked about that. I had a blast and met a lot of wonderful women! All of the girls looked fantastic. It was a great show! My friend Lori Steele turned pro which was exciting to watch. And after 4 years away from the stage Nicole Berg turned pro in the lhw class. And she is a doll! Super sweet and super beautiful! She really earned that pro card! Congrats to Kris Murrell and Lisette Acevedo the hw and mw who also turned pro. Those two looked incredible as well and deserving.

After the show, we went to club Mansion and it was wild! So much fun! Great music and tons of hot people!

Here are a couple pics from 2 shoots I did.

I also did an online contest with Andrea Giacomi and Deanna Harvick. The three of us were featured on James Cook's first Webcam Physique Extravaganza. We had a stinkin blast and thanks to the viewers I won! I was honored and very flattered!
So here is a link to check it out:
So after the show I was able to return to a normal life again! And normal food! Thanksgiving was a week later and it was a totally different experience this year! I ate my little heart out! And I was able to spend time with my family. So, right now I am just working and training and it's great. I am lifting heavy again and enjoying it more and more.
As for next year, well i will do a local Indiana show because I have to requalify for national level and then I will do USA's again. So just working on a few things and hopefully make improvements for next year!
So sorry it's been a while but i will make it a priority to keep this updated. And my webmaster will be updating my members section with photos and videos so keep checking in! Thanks!
And a huge thanks to my trainer Pete Kwiatkowski for putting up with me for a year and keeping me motivated! And thank you to Jodi Sturdevant who stoned my gorgeous suit this year! Thanks so much!!

7 more weeks to go!

Mondays at school are always rough. The kids are extra wild because they just got over the weekend and it's hard for them to adjust to the changes of starting school each week. But we managed and it's just one day closer to teh weekend!

Yayy it is getting closer and closer to the big show! So ready to be done dieting. I have been dieting basically since January. Yuck! But it's been good.

My little bro came to town this weekend to visit. We got to hang a bit. He's such a great person. He is so funny and sarcastic without even intentionally trying to be. It's so funny! He has such a positive outlook on life, it's contagious! I hate that he lives out in L.A. but hopefully I'll be able to go visit him soon!

So since I've been single I have been living it up! Going out with my girlfriends each weekend! Just havin girl time! Went to a gay bar this past weekend and had a blast! They played my fav kind of music: trance/house music and we danced all night. Caught a drag queen show while we were there and just had so much fun! Sunday I went to the Indianapolis Colts game with my girl Jess and her man. We had awesome seats and the Colts smeared the Seahawks. It was great! The stadium is new and it was just gorgeous! So it was a great weekend! Just not long enough :(

My trainer got us tickets to see DJ Kaskade at Club Mansion in Miami! He's spinning on Saturday night right after my show! My girlfriends who are coming with me are gonna be in for a treat! And so will I! So here is a sneak peak of where I'm at 7 weeks out.

Yeah only the backside ;) Holler! Til next time!

8 weeks!!

It's 8 weeks til Nationals! I am getting super excited about it! It's a lot easier this time around because I dont' have as much weight to lose since I just came off a diet. I'm about 147 right now which is good. Just have to bring it in tighter!

Here are a couple pics from a shoot I did with Maryann Glascock for FemFlex.

And here are a few from a shoot I did with Mike Yurkovic. You might recognize the girl in the last shot it's my good friend Aleesha Young!

Until next time! I'll have some more updates of my contest prep!

My new tat!

Here's my new bday tattoo from my girlfriends! It means "strength". I love it!

Sunday, August 23, 2009


Well I have officially decided to do Nationals in November! It's 13 weeks away! I am very excited and very motivated! I am more motivated than I was for USA's! I thought about doing it about 2 weeks ago and my trainer encouraged me to do so. He sent me my nutrition and it was ON! So I have about 2 more weeks of a mini-offseason to try to put some size on my quads. I've been doing this mini-offseason thing for 2 weeks already so I hope it has done some good. I weigh about 151 right now so I am stoked about that. Just ready to get back on stage again! And it's in Miami!!!! So I'll post updates and pics! 13 more weeks!

6th place!!

Hey hey! Just got back from Vegas and a great show! I had a blast! I met some amazing women. Lisa Boushard, Kris Clark, Chris Sabo, Amanda Folstad, Diana Tinnelle, Tracy Bodner, and I could go on and on! It was a blast! These are women I have admired for a while and to get to talk to them let alone be on stage with them was incredible!

So, this year I moved up a weight class to the lightheavies. I was worried about being too small but that was definitely not a problem. I weighed in at 137!! That's 12 lbs heavier than last year when I was a middle. And I was definitely harder and tighter this time around so that is a huge accomplishment for me. I took 6th place which was awesome! I got first call outs but they took 6 of us out so I didn't make top 5 which was my goal. But making first call outs was huge! And looking at pictures I am super happy with how I looked.

My little brother came over from LA to see me and hang out for the night. And one my clients I train, bless her heart, drove from vacationing in Arizona to see me on stage at the night show. I was so flattered that I meant that much to her to come see me! She's so sweet!

Aleesha and I got to spend a lot of time together which was much needed and just really nice. Did some shoots together which was cool. And my trainer Pete put up with not one but 2 dieting, cranky girls for an entire 2 weeks! He is a saint. He cooked all of our food which was so nice cuz I was not feeling too great the last week. He really rocked out my diet this year and I have never looked better and I was even bigger. He definitely knows what he's talking about! So a big huge THANK YOU to Pete for getting me into shape this year!
Other than that just getting ready to go back to work!! Gotta love summers off! I love this sport and it will always be a part of me in some way. My goal for this offseason is to just add some size to my legs and eat clean and consistent. Next year I will probably go back to Vegas for USA's cuz Vegas is a great place to end a diet!! Here are some pics from the show. One of Aleesha and me, my trainer Pete and Aleesha, and a couple from MD of me on stage. I should have some new photo shoot pics in my members area soon so keep an eye out for those! Until next time!!

2 weeks and 3 days!!

Two weeks til Vegas!!! So so excited! Feeling good but super tired now. But I expect that at this point. I am weighing about 144 now which is right on track. I am definitely bigger and look harder than last year so really that's all I care about. Should be able to drop a couple more these last few weeks. Next week I will be in Utah with my trainer Pete and my girl Aleesha so it will be nice to feel like death with them! Especially since Aleesha will be competing too so it'll be fun to spend time together. Here are some pics I took yesterday. I'll post something with some pics as soon as I get back! Wish me luck!

5 weeks to go!

Well, I sure do love dieting what can I say?!! Ummm not really! This past weekend I had sushi and you would've thought it was going to my last meal. I was craving it and since I am allowed to have it on my high carb days I took advantage of it!
I got to see my 3 month old neice, Sage. She is beautiful and healthy and happy! I just adore her.
I am so excited for Vegas! And bonus: a week before the show I am going to stay with my trainer Pete and his girlfriend Aleesha who is also competing. So she and I get to suffer through our last week together! I'm just pumped to hang with them for a week. Then it's off to Vegas for USA's!! I feel great about how I'm looking right now. Still weighing around 150 but I'm not gonna sweat it too much. Doing my two a days of cardio so that should help. But this is the biggest and hardest I have ever been so no complaints from me! Pete has really done a great job with my nutrition so I have to give him all the credit. And Aleesha has endured all my whining and moaning about everything! Well, so has everybody I guess! But I am motivated and my eyes are set on the prize! And then some eating afterward!

Until next time I will leave you with a pic of me at 5 weeks! Don't mind the bloated belly!! Later!

So this past weekend my boyfriend and I went to the new casino that's here in Indy. It was awesome! Everything is electronic because we have laws that won't allow actual person dealers I guess?!! I dont' know why! ANwyay, the casino was really nice. We got dressed up and went and played a few slots. We had a blast!

7 more weeks!!!!!

8.5 weeks to go!

Hey there! It's been a while! I am on summer break right now and loving it!

I am 8.5 weeks out from USA's! I am super stoked to get this diet over with cuz I am ready to eat! It's getting hard going to cookouts and graduation parties when I can't eat!! But I've been strong and haven't given in!

I weigh about 152lbs right now and my calories are still pretty high. I feel good. Not really hungry which is grrrrreat! Here is a pic of me out by my parent's pool.

Well I am off to do some cardio!

Here is one of my fav pics from last year's shoot with Mike Yurkovic.

Long long time....

Sorry it's been so long since I last posted :(. I have definitely been slackin. Well, I am getting ready for the USA's which is in Vegas baby! Holler! So excited! This is going to be a great year I can feel it! My trainer Pete is not allowing me to do too much cardio right now which I like! I am 14.5 weeks out I think!

I have been so busy with work, my night class for my masters, and training that I barely get enough sleep. I also moved into a new apartment with my boyfriend and we are so happy there! It's an awesome super spacious apartment. We love it! Other than that I am just trying to stay on track and get my workouts in. This year I might be moving up a weight class so that takes a lot of pressure of the making weight for the middles. But the diet is great and I haven't lost any strength so I am feeling super positive! It's a little stressful now with having bills, but we are making it work! I will take some progress pics and post them each week.

I shoudl also have some new videos from Jr. Nats last year I did with Annie Rivieccio from Muscle Angels that will be posted soon so stay tuned! Thanks for all the support! Later!

Arnold 2009!

Hey hey! Well things are good here just super busy as usual. I have been dieting for about 8 weeks now get ready for the USA's. The plan is to take off some initial weight then try to put on some more muscle without much fat and then hit a 16 week contest diet. We will see!

Next weekend is the Arnold Classic. I am super pumped about it this year because I am working a booth for my good friend Kate Stewart. We will be there all weekend representing her clothing line Fisico Moda. So if you go to the Arnold Expo make sure you stop by my booth! Other than that I am just tryin to get in shape and be better than last year. I am very happy with the progress I've made so far especially since I haven't been able to do much cardio since I get sick every other week! I've learned that being a first year teacher exposes you to so many more germs than you ever thought possible! But my job is so rewarding and it's so worth it!

Well, until next time! I will keep my blog updated more regularly as I start my serious contest prep. So stay tuned! Thanks for all the love and support!!

Hey hey hey! Well it's been a long minute! Sorry for neglecting my journal :(. So, I have been super busy, working every day and training a couple people. I love my job working with students with special needs. It is the most rewarding and fun job I have ever had! I also just started back to school to work on my masters degree in special ed so I will be able to teach special ed and/or P.E. and health! I am very excited!

I went to Atlanta this past November for Nationals. It was a freakin blast! I think I got about 8 hours of sleep the entire weekend. I just stayed out each night partying with my friends! I got to hang with my girl Aleesha Young and her boyfriend and I also got to hang with some other bb friends which was super fun. My friend and fellow bb Shannon stayed with us in our condo so that was awesome! I know I kept her up a lot with all my loudness but I know she didn't mind! I did one photo shoot with a good photographer friend of mine Doug Smith who is a doll. He did a great job with the shots!

As far as bb is concerned and competing I just started an 8 week precontest diet, diet. I have been getting into contest prep mode these past 2 weeks and I am super excited about competing this year. I am doing USA's and possibly North Americans. But definitely USA's. I think the show is about 26 weeks away. So I have plenty of time but I am just trying to drop an initial 20lbs that way I can save some muscle and not have to drop a ton of weight at once. My calories are still pretty high and my cardio isn't too insane so I am feeling good! I am training at a different gym right now which has helped get me re-motivated. Sometimes I just need a change of pace in order to get myself recharged!

I hope to put some more videos up soon. I promise to get some interesting and fun stuff for all my members! I will keep everyone posted through my contest prep. I know it's exciting to watch the changes we bb's make with our diets and training.

Until next time!!
