RANT: I have been competing since 1999, learning from experience and through the advice and guidance of those that helped form the new sport of Figure, a sport formed after Fitness (Fitness without the routine). I loved it so much that I wanted to share my experience and get others involved in it. I decided to start a posing clinic, an idea I got from Nancy Georges (now an IFBB pro with years of experience that shadow mine) as she hosts Stage Might Posing Clinics in the LA area. Lately, so many people have been hosting their own posing clinics with minimal experience, especially on a national level. Please pick your posing coach wisely. I have 50 shows under my belt in fitness, bikini, model, and figure in 5 different organizations.
My workout journal is on ebay! Every workout is written down, incuding 5 figure competition preps! Part of proceeds will go to the Humane society!
Part of proceeds go to the Humane Society!!
Do everything I did last year! Journal includes daily entries of my training (cardio and weights), includes prep leading to 5 FIGURE COMPETITIONS!
This video brought so many emotions to surface....its inspirational, emotional, happy but sad, and something that will make you want to hug your kids. Read the words first, and have some tissue handy....I had tears streaming down my face.

I have been missing on BodySpace all summer. Its been busy! Now that I'm getting back to normal and my motivation to train my hardest is back up there, I did something stupid.....
I took my daughter to her gymnastics "open gym" where you just come in and play. Well, she tells her friends that her mom can do backhandsprings....."so 'em, Mom!" So mom does her stuff and then some. I was having fun acting like I was 9 years old....back hip circles on the bars, playing on the rings (which is very hard on the shoulders). I get into the car and realize I hurt myself. My MRI is scheduled for today
Hoping its just a minor thing because my 12 week prep for my next show starts on Monday I don't have a good feeling because shoulder hurts while doing simple little things.....I can't even push the grocery cart, how am I supposed to train? Hopefully a little (ok, big) shot will have me good as new, but if it is torn, I can do worse damage by continuing to push through it.
Well, after the last two NGA pro shows, I've decided to leave it behind. I am giving up pro status and moving on to NPC amateur division. There are several reasons for this switch, but mainly by listening to people in the "industry" talk about my last 2 shows is what made my decision final. Actually one of the local judges (a gal whom I've competed against in the past) told me that I need to find a new organization or do bikini. She said I just dont fit in anymore. I've had national-level npc judges tell me I have a figure body, not a bikini body and that what she said was rediculous. She is a promoter of NGA and she's telling me to find a new organization? Some promoter! I was going to take a group of the gals and guys I train to her show later this year, but now I am strongly recommending they choose another show (there is another local show just 2 weeks prior this fall!) Is that wrong? But I can't support someone that doesn't support her own affiliation....
Anyway, this has motivated me like crazy! I have been training harder than ever and eating like a champ! Here is a pic of the last show....I'll let you decide if I "fit in" or not......I'm in the center, purple suit.
