Two weeks out

Bad lighting for pictures-

Sunday, October 29, 2006


~sitting here watching my posing videos from upper body, I swear I have not a complaint, I can kill them all with my back,really nice horseshoes, great bicep peaks, striated chest,....HOWEVER I am just plain ol' frustrated when I watch my legs...What does a girl have to do to get the definition to come in?!!! Woe the F#*! is me -
My hamstrings aren't so bad, but my quadriceps, I swear they do this on purpose.

One day of replenishing - I had IHOP harvest grain pancakes and porkchops yesterday - with scrambled egg whites. My favorite meal in the entire world!!! The only thing that could have made it better would have been if I had three more pancakes on my plate. Back on the diet today - I was at 150 this morning. I gained two pounds this week.

I got my hair extensions this morning....they are ok, I wanted to have long hair for years on end, but had to put up with hair stylist after hair stylist who thought I should be Shirley Temple reincarnated. My friend Lisa Scott and her daughter Tashia put them in. Lisa is beautiful and a very talented singer, and she also made the great bikini and dress in the pictures posted a few days ago.
I can't get this blogger to uplaod the pictures from yesterday, so those will have to wait.

Oh My - I see I am being "revealed"...
Hello, World!
Yes, I'll be at the Nationals, a heavyweight, albeit one of the smaller big girls...I will be there at my best!
Now I'll reveal a little secret that will make other competitors truly hate me - I don't do any "cardio" - typically, year round I walk two or three times per week, about two miles a stretch. A couple of weeks ago I upped the walking to five days a week, three or four miles a stretch, and it proved to be detrimental to me - it stressed and smoothed my quads out considerably, so now I have to cut back again. :)

2 and a half weeks to Miami

....I think I am I supposed to be excited about the upcoming competition? ?? Sorry, I haven't quite hit that stride yet.
I have set up a photoshoot with Annie Rivvieccio while I am in Miami - THAT excites me!!! I had a shoot with the awesome and ever so loveable Clyde Carr this past Sunday - he is very talented, and a great friend. The pictures here are by Clyde- we went to Cape Henlopen State Park, and you just can't get much prettier scenery anywhere. Iwould not call myself a "good" model, but we did get a ton of beautiful shots.

My weight is hovering around 148. The diet is kicking my butt here and there - last Friday I almost passed out at the gym due to lack of sugars...Strength is down a little - energy gets sapped VERY quicly. My quads are still my frustration.

Last week my total was 1040, raw - of course!-weighed in at 147.25... :( :( :( :( - 'nuff said about that!

Less than five weeks to the Nationals..what in the world am I doing?!!!
Anyhoo- Tom Nine, highly renowned woman's physique photographer actually drove up here from VA Beach to shoot ME yesterday...Spent 5 hours with him on Cape Henlopen Beach, Lewes Beach and then to Gold's Gym...flexing all day in a majorly dehydrated lean state is HARD! I really do feel more physically exhausted today and beat up than the day after any of my powerlifting meets...then I pulled out my lower right lat today and can barely move without spewing out some choice expleted deletives... I'm laying back on the ol' heating pad right now, this SUX!!! I must be doing something right, though - Tom suggested we get together in Miami!
I am HONORED...I felt kind of goofy, as I always do, flexing and posing - it's the part I least like about this "sport" called bodybuilding. I just like to train and lift heavy weights, and yes I like looking really good and in shape.

First State Power Frenzy

OK, I did fall apart -it all came apart at the last minute, but you know what? It's fine - I helped produce a powerlifting meet, where so many good people were able to realize the fruition of there cumulative efforts, I gave people the opportunity to feel satisfied, and to be proud of themselves, and to get excited and to help others do the same...yes I'm fine...
