Two weeks after show.
I’ve been looking at the pic the day after my show and now. My lack of real exercise and about 70% clean eating.

It was artistic, professional and I wanted to do a shoot so badly. As most may know, a...
18 days left.
Alright, I’ve been staring at this screen trying to figure out what to write about, well, myself. Ever since I got my new nutrition plan and even a little bit before that, little carbs. I’ve attempted stay away from dairy, sugars and anything extra…however it’s been a bust at times. Last week had been pretty emotional as my brain and body is trying to adapt to the...
4 weeks, 5 days.
Nutrition is LOCKED DOWN. That feels good to say! I wake up every morning feeling leaner. As you know, you dehydrate while you sleep, so you always wake up a bit thirsty and not so bloated. That’s when I see the biggest differences from my constant cardio. My legs have leaned out impressively and my upper body is looking really fine. My biggest concentration is tigthening up my glutes! ...
5.5 weeks out!
Excellence! Was measured on Tuesday at 129lbs, 15.49% body fat. It was a relief and somewhat humbling. I’ve been getting back into the groove of things after a two week stint in military school and then two weeks of recovering from that! Two weeks of essentially uncontrolled eating, coming home, and getting back on my nutrition plan was probably the hardest thing I’ve done this...
:) 6 weeks out, well almost.
Really tightened up my routine this week, work-out wise. Felt really good to step on the scale and for it to say 126lbs! Shedding the pounds I gained while in military school and really working on cutting with my diet. Had a good day in the gym yesterday. Work out consisted of an 8:00 mile. The 12x3 15lb: shoulder press, bicep curl, tricep extension and double arm rows. Then I did...
As April is literally right around the corner, I am soon coming to the realization….I am 13 months away from my deployment to Afghanistan. Reality is setting in, I have less than 12 months to make myself known. To put my name out there in the fitness world. For 2011, I have to wrap up this year with smart choices and smart competitions. I’ve made a choice to participate in at least three...
7 weeks out
Good morning, Monday! Yes I am feeling chipper, and no, I am not feigning it. It’s a good way to start my next seven weeks. Over my lull, had a great weekend and am VERY excited about my transformation. It’s time to get serious, not that I haven’t been serious. The lackadaisical days are over. At this point in my prep, it’s all about me. ME, ME, ME, ME, ME. And boy do I have plans for me....
Boyfriend is leaving, hooray!
Okay, okay. I shouldn’t be so excited, but I am. He’s leaving for 18 days. That means no distractions! I have to admit, I love being around my man, but it makes me lazy! I’d rather snuggle on the couch and watch movies than doing anything constructive. So, almost 7 weeks out, and I need the motivation/dedication/discipline. He’s leaving at the perfect time! Yesterday...
Stress comes in all sorts of forms. For me, my stress almost always derives from my finances or drama. I’ll get this crazy anxiety to the point where I’m shaking. I hate disappointing people and I hate worrying about money. My first inclination to relieve stress was to eat something sugary or drink a beer. I won’t lie, I love beer and I love chocolate. Two things I’m basically not allowed to...
8 weeks out
First off, a little about me. I’m 22-years-old with a lot of aspirations. I’ve been in the National Guard for 3 years and I hold the job as Public Affairs Broadcast Specialist. I’ve held, what I like to call “office bitch”, job here and there since I was 18. I’ve wet my feet a few times in college but haven’t jumped in full fledge. I’ve always loved public relations but tend to hold myself...

Kettle-bell Class Week 1
I have a love/hate relationship with the kettle-bell. I love it, because it burns….I hate it because of the muscle failure. With this class tonight - I felt like dying and puking. There are moments in my life that I wish I hadn’t been so lazy. This was definitely one of them. To be out of shape, is excruciating….physically and emotionally. In a lot of ways, you are what you...

Miles to go until at Mack’s = 530 energy drinks thus far = 3 Bottles of water = 4 miles driven since Maryland = 1651 days until home = 4 getting a call from unit when they need help with video editing = priceless.

Taking " " for granted.
That tiny space. That fills a hole. That fills the gap. Whatever it is, we, as humanity see it…take it for granted. Bam. I said it. TAKEN FOR GRANTED. An axiomatic truth. As simple as “I think therefore I am”. SELF EVIDENCE. What is that space to you? Life, love, relationships? Friendships? MONEY? Comfort, shelter, health, food??? OH YES….all of this is taken...

All these social networks that “bring” people together seem to take away the important parts of friendships. Instead of being worried about your own life, we are all worried to pieces about everyone’s “thoughts” and ideas. Their status’, relationships, photos, blogs, posts, links, videos etc. It takes away the realism. The feelings and companionship of a...
