Bikini Contest Prep

by admin on Wed, 03/16/2016 - 4:36pm | 0 comments

I've talked to so many women that have considered entering a bikini competition, but they weren't sure of what Bikini Contest Prep consists of, so I thought I would write a little bit about it here, to answer the questions people have beforehand. I learned so much through the process of doing the actual competitions that I did, and with each one I became much better prepared... read more

Working to achieve a goal

by admin on Wed, 03/16/2016 - 4:36pm | 0 comments

One thing that I've noticed with striving to reach a goal, is that not only do you get closer to the goal that you've been focusing on, but the positive steps and changes that you make to get closer to that goal tend to also move you closer to all of the other goals in your life. I signed up for the WBFF World Championships in August because I very much needed a goal, and I've been am... read more

I love cake, but I also love fitting into the ski outfit I wore when I was in high school (and it seems like you can't have both:) so I'm always looking for a way to create something delicious, healthy and easy! Here's my recipe for a Carrot Cake Smoothie. It has protein, fruits, veggies, healthy fats and carbs.....everything that you could want. In a vitamix blender: 1 ... read more

My Journey to the WBFF World Championships in Vegas

by admin on Wed, 03/16/2016 - 4:36pm | 0 comments

It's true that you can't make a visible change without making some major changes in your daily habits. I haven't competed in a few years, and this year I needed a clear goal because there is something amazing that always seems to happen when I am working on one main goal, and that is that I quickly get much closer to all of my goals. After a few weeks of mulling it over, and thinking... read more

What I took away from my WBFF Bikini Competition Prep

by admin on Wed, 03/16/2016 - 4:36pm | 0 comments

Last weekend something happened that I have dreamed about for quite a while…I competed in the bikini division at the WBFF and won my class, which also had the added benefit of the fact that I was also awarded my WBFF pro card, which means that I will now compete in a new category with other WBFF pros. My favorite part of signing up for a fitness competition is actually the training, a... read more

Six Pack Abs

There's something about a lean, defined midsection. It's a bit of a rarity to see these days, and it isn't something that you can buy. You, and only you do the work to create a six pack, and it shows a certain level of motivation and dedication that most people may not be willing to commit to. I’ve heard people talk about celebrities and say how easy it must be for them becaus... read more

These carrot banana paleo muffins are amazing. No refined sugar or white flour, and they taste.....perfect. So simple to make, and a great snack or breakfast. I like to make an entire batch, and freeze half so that I can have them the next week. If you wanted to make them into cupcakes you could frost them with coconut icing...... the recipe can be found here: read more

No more frizzy hair at the gym!

Years ago, I remember hearing Oprah talk about her hair, and what a process it is to style it. Because it took so long, she said that she thought more carefully about swimming, or exercise, simply because she doesn’t have time to start the entire process again. Oprah I totally get it! My hair is super long, and while it may not be curly….it’s very wavy and takes a long time t... read more
The Bristol Lounge makes it very easy to eat out in a healthy way. I've always found them to be very accommodating in regards to special preparation of food, or combinations of things which are not on the menu. I have a few favorite things I order there, which are amazing and won’t derail your fitness progress: • Order the burger in a lettuce wrap instead of the bun, and ask f... read more
Remember that it only has to be one time. So many times in my life I slipped up on my plan, and the guilt from that one slip was enough to send me on a binge for two days. In a perfect world we would all be able to resist every treat that was put before us, and we would plan ahead for every single meal thus staying on plan 100 percent of the time. In my world it’s all about damage contro... read more
