I am back and settled from my move home as well as Montreal. I am also hormonal and snacking on homemade popcorn with garlic and salt…don’t judge.  You may be wondering how my second competition, UFE Chaos (Montreal) went.  Well…I won 1st place in the Women’s Open division for Figure!  Hard to believe, but just goes to show you that when you put in the work your body will change.  It was most definitely hard work but work that I truly enjoy. I can’t imagine my life without my workouts.
Due to my placement, I am now a UFE Elite Athlete and will enter into competition again on November 9 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada  for the UFE North American Championships where I will try to earn my Pro card.  My goal is to earn my Pro card and also get some action in a magazine.  I also want to become a sponsored athlete to help pay for all of this or at least get some free supplements! 🙂

Pre-contest dinner.  Not quite sure if this fits into the plan or not but I am still experimenting.  Seemed to do no harm.

Lunges.  You have to do lunges.  The progress and development of my backside is all due to lunges.  Can't wait to see what it looks like in another month.  Lunges and Patience.

Thomas Gold at New City Gas.  Too bad I was pretty tired at this point.  From now on I think I just want to go back to the hotel, drink water, tea, and take a bath.  After a shower.  The rinse off of tanning products is pretty scary.

My love.  This man is my soul mate.  No matter what, he is always there to support me.  I was nervous about how he'd respond to me competing but more so the training and he has been by my side the whole time encouraging me and telling me sweet nothings.  Rock solid baby, rock solid.

I am feeling a little overwhelmed at the moment with people coming at me looking for training, a new weekend job, and my own training.  I need to prioritize things and keep 3 things in top running:  love, fitness, and money(work).  Nick and I are moving to CO in the fall and saving is a priority.  This competitions have not been cheap!  I plan on setting up a donation website to help pay my way to Ontario.  I feel bad, as though I have let my blog slip and I want to get back into it.  That being said, please be patient while I figure out the direction I would like to head in.  I hope you are all well, staying active, and eating great delicious fresh foods!  It’s spring time and the best time to revise
