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!!
