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!
