Description: Despite my 3 day gym week my diet remained on track. Had to prioritize my plate and study a few mornings instead of lifting this past week. But I am ready to get back in the on and continue to push past more personal records! I am also sharing my favorite fall treat - roasted pumpkin seeds!
Description: So this is my first weekday morning that I have not gone to the gym in a LONG time...as you will see I am bored. :P SO I decided to share with you my food prep for each day.

Description: Oh man...the time has come, the start of the season of wonderful delicious feasts among love ones. With the Holidays fast approaching, you may be questioning whether or not you'll be able to maintain your healthy habits. I have found that with focus and my rules of thumb I am able to breeze through the Holidays without putting an ounce of weight on and perhaps even lose a few lbs in the meantime as I continue to prep for my spring shows!
Description: I don't just train to look good in the mirror... I don't train to simply attract attention....BUT... I DO train because it is in the gym, where I feel myself, I feel alive. It is the only place where an entire life, month, day can be compressed into an hour of sweat, where millions of emotions can be felt like hope, satisfaction, disappointment, fear, triumph, doubt...all in one session. I train because during a workout I feel like there is nowhere else I want to be. By going to the gym every morning I get the chance to wake up filled with desire and enthusiasm to face the day ahead of me! Lifting gives me the opportunity to start each day with a new challenge, a way to exhibit my abilities, my ambition and determination....

Description: Suit time on a very cold friday night in MN... ironic! At Perfect Fit Gear. - While on stage we do not have any props, just YOU, so making sure that your suit fits your body appropriately is important, you are the star on stage. - The geometry, pattern, and color of the suit has the power to make your body look leaner, meaner and bigger. Just like your poses, you must design the suit around YOU and what YOU want to show off! I love this part of contest prep!
Description: Learning from last year's suit: how it fit, held up, sparkled etc has influenced my design for this year. This year I am going local, getting sized periodically as I lean down, rhinestones pre-applied with the perfect coverage to accentuate my physique on stage!

Description: Just a little shoulder reCAP from my past week....I have always been very careful with my shoulder training. Especially with heavy weight flying over my head.... I try not to go too heavy too fast, I know poor form with shoulders have a greater tendency for injury. Developing your shoulders are keep to a strong and bigger upper half. With my large legs this is critical for portions on stage! :)

Description: Sticky Finger Granola -- aka too good to be true Homemade Gluten Free! Sometimes I just need to re-fuel with a few generous spoonful's of granola. I've never really found a store-bought granola that I'm entirely in love with, so I usually make my own Homemade Granola. The fun part of granola is its versatile and creative tweaks you can do for each batch. My favorite is below! Enjoy! Top 5 ways to get sticky with your granola! 1. Right out of your SINGLE SERVING bag! It's a delicious, healthy snack. 2. Create your own parfaits with Greek Yogurt. 3. Use it as a topping on a baked apple. Mmmm! 4. Put some pizzazz in your salad by adding granola to it. 5. It may seem odd but add it to your egg whites for a great pre-workout!

Description: Friday Fit Tip! Summer is a busy time for most; with all of the BBQ's, weddings, bonfire, dinners, shopping, celebrations, and altered schedules, it's difficult to remember all of the tasks that are routine in our lives. That's no reason to forget to practice good oral hygiene; lifting isn't my only dedication to my wellness; so is my dental health. Make the tooth fairy proud! http://www.dental.net/dental-nutrition/f oods-good-for-teeth/ http://www.rd.com/slideshows/10-tips-for -healthy-whiter-teeth/#slideshow=slide7
Description: Week 1 report! As you can imagine, even a relatively simple change, such as changing your diet, if it is totally new, can seem daunting at first. It involves some dynamic restructuring mentally, emotional and more importantly physically. This type of change can be felt whether you are starting contest prep, get fit, or loose fat programs; all will require consistent effort, determination and will power to break free of self-reinforcing patterns, and the body's natural resistance to change. This is how I felt this week; little taxing and challenging to my mind and physical body.
Description: Key ingredients in my awesome 'Muscle Juice' ---- Next week I'll go in detail on how adding a dash of Drive and topping it off with Focus just blows things up!
Description: I have learned the importance of Rest, Relax, Recover and RELOADing! Our bodies need rest and recovery to make GAINS and progress. Proper recovery is vital to our physical and emotional wellness, and becomes especially crucial if we are engaging in an intense exercise regimen. So today, do something relaxing for your body and MIND. Allow yourself to reload so that you can reap the true benefits of your hard work that occurred the week prior and to prepare yourself for the week ahead.
Description: Fit Tip - Quality over Quantity! Focus on the quality of the contraction and less about how much. Trust me your muscles will thank you! ;) Check out some of these bicep exercises: http://www.bodybuilding.com/exercises/fi nder/lookup/filter/muscle/id/15/muscle/b iceps
Description: Yet another weekly update! :) What I've been doing and where I am headed! Stronger and leaner each and everyday! This Little Lady is going BIG this show!!
Description: Sometimes we find ourselves in a funk, especially when we're trying to juggle, fitness, diet, work and life. Sometimes we need reminders that cause us to think differently and reevaluate what where we are and where we are headed. Whether it's how to incorporate new workouts/routines, new clever ways to handle work and life initiatives, or simply being aware that you just need to chill out. These funky moments cause us to re-focus, re-group and get us back on track! Time to kick the funk and take on the next 6 weeks like no other! Balance is KEY!
Description: Herbs and spices not only make food taste better, they often have pump you up healthy properties. Its about that time in my competition prep that food variety is decreased and I rely a lot on herbs. SO examples are: Basil has been found to relieve indigestion. Rosemary is believed to stimulate circulation and ease pain by increasing blood supply where applied. It also aids fat digestion and is good for aching joints and rheumatic pains. Garlic is an excellent source of minerals and vitamins that are essential for optimum health. Cinnamon reduces LDL cholesterol levels. Lastly cayenne pepper supplies vital nutrients to the heart, raises the body temperature, improves blood circulation by thinning the blood, removes toxins from the blood and rebuilds blood cells.
Description: The magnitude of your success strives solely from you, your use of TIME and is governed by the choices you make; your Desire, your Determination, your Dedication and your Discipline....with a dash of Positivity!
Description: It's time to ride up and get on with the rodeo show!!! Got the boots packed and the carbs filling my belly!! I AM READY! Feeling lots of mixed emotions but the most prevalent is my thrill and excitement to be back on stage soon! :)
Description: Here's my Dallas Europa and my 1 week post competition experience ....man what a HUGE mind game that you absolutely have to be prepared for. Sometimes I think it's harder than preppin! You are faced with the same temptations but you lack that distant goal in the horizon; everything was structured and laid out where as post competition it's like you are FREE!. You can't go back to eating the amount of food you were before competing or the variation. You have to avoid binge eating, and keep your structure to keep your sanity!! Post show I feel bloated and again a mind game wondering how much of this is fat that I have put on. I refuse to get on the scale. Slowly my energy is back up and I am able to focus on other things. My ultimate goal right now is to find balance between being happy and healthy yet being happy with my physique as I transition into my VERY productive 'off season'.
Description: When coming out of a show its critical to start slowly adding different foods and back in. This little lady didn't fair so well, lots of water retention and tummy bloat. Feeling little worn out but motivation is still high! Changing things up from here, details to come!
