It’s Been a Minute….

This will make you laugh. I was bored the other night and made this…haha

HA! Anyways… Wow, that’s the longest I’ve gone without posting since I started this blog.

I needed a break, and I can’t say that I’m 100% back yet, but maybe…


Going amazingly right now. I am LOVING my workouts and seeing better results than EVER!! I’m lifting heavy and really can tell a huge difference in my physique.


I feel better than ever. I am eating a liberal contest diet. Meaning, I’m actually eating carbs every single day (in my first 2-3 meals) and I haven’t felt this good in a long time. My weight has been holding steady the past few weeks, as my body got used to having carbs again since I wasn’t really having much in preparing for the USA’s.(more on that below.) My clothes are getting looser though, and my mind is in such a great place.


If you didn’t know already, I’m NOT competing in the USA’s this weekend. I made the decision that I am going to do this the right way. The right way is different for everyone, but MY right way is slowly leaning out. None of this no-carb crapola for me. My body does better with high protein, moderate carbs and moderate fat. My activity level is high enough to support that and it is the way i started this whole thing. I got too wrapped up in “having” to do the show, that I started to do what I’ve always said not to do: eat too little. My body wasn’t responding as well and I knew I needed to get into a long-term mindset.

Future Plans

As of right now I’m not sure. I’d like to compete in a national bikini show this year, but part of me is really turned off by the sport and the judging/posing. I am really considering doing figure. At this point, I’m not finalizing anything because I really just am having a good time working out hard, leaning out and not having a timeline…….


It’s becoming a lifestyle. The workouts have always been, but the eating too. It doesn’t feel like a chore anymore these days and it’s what I want to do.

Basically, I’m loving life right now, getting back into music again, training for the fun of it, getting amazing results, and enjoying every moment. I do plan on competing before the year ends, but I’m seeing where this road takes me.


Don’t worry guys, I didn’t eat any french fries. I just like saying “frites”.

Now that we have established that I’m a weirdo, I will get on with this post.

Today has been pretty good overall. My mood has gone up and down, but that’s another story which I will get into in another post.

Got a good chest and tricep workout in this morning and finished it off with some HIIT on the treadmill. I did 5 minutes at 6.0mph then 1 min. on 1 min. off for 10 minutes (6.5-8.5mph) and then went back to 6.5mph and gradually went up every minute by a .5mph until I got to 8.5mph. That brought me to 20 minutes and I cooled down for 5 more. Hard and quick, just the way I like it.(TWSS)

I came home afterwards and ate, dilly dallyed, showered and eventually made it to work. Got what needed to be done out of the way, headed to the bank to finish up some fun accounting bolog-na and then dropped off some D-Bax tickets to papa georgio.(his name is Gregg but when my sibs and I were little we would call him George because we seemed to get a quicker response…that or saying “dad, your secretary called” always triggered an immediate “what?!” from him hehe), and finally headed home.

I was exhausted and had a date with the couch and also VH1 Classic. NEW FAVE CHANNEL. Yesterday it was Woodstock and The Wall…today I watched a show called Classic Albums-one about Nirvana, and the other about U2. I love it because they are in the studio with the rough tracks messing around with them, talking about them, etc. (I am going to school to learn audio engineering so I totally dig that kind of thing!) And now, The Beatles: Hard Day’s Night is on!! I highly reccomend this channel if your a music buff like me 🙂

Going to a movie tonight with my besttty. I miss her we have been friends since we were in 3rd grade and still talk daily. Since we’ve started college we don’t see eachother often, but she is still my numba 1!(besides my seester)

Food-ing went well today again. If I have to bitch and moan my way through these next 10 weeks I will, but hopefully that’s not the case 🙂 So far spirits are still high!
