HEY YO!!!!!!!

So, here's an update for ya:
Diet is lax (that's short for relaxed). I'm not being super strict, I'm 'trying' not to go overboard. we all know how uncomfortable it can be when you over do it. I must say, I'm enjoying a few things that I did cut out for contest prep: Sugar-Free White Chocolate SAUCE *not the syrup, the SAUCE, it's thicker* This stuff is BOMB tasty and makes my americano complete. Also, I've been enjoying air popped popcorn with a lil yogurt butter, my husbands favorite. YUMMMY.

Training is great. I'm doing all of my training in schwetty's because my work schedule is crazy crazy busy and that's the only way I'll get it done. Lifting and doing cardio here and there. Again, pretty relaxed, doing hardcore when I feel like it, and taking it easy when I feel like it :)

We head to Kansas to visit my AMAZING family this coming Thursday. I am soooooo pumped I can hardly stand it! :)

Ohhh, on a side note (I haven't blogged about it yet because I'm still seeing how it pans out, what all the details are & whatnot........)
I've been added to the
Tight Curves Team
. :) :) :) I'm not on the site quite yet, but I'll be on there with a little blurb about myself. The most enticing thing about being added to their team is that there's potential for competition sponsorship. (competing is NOT a cheap hobby!) So, that's pretty awesome, and to be part of a forum for healthy women, I'm all about that! :) I like when my tips & tricks can help others!!! I'll keep you posted as I figure out more details!

Alright, I'm off to makes some healthy Nachos Neuvos (think applebee's style, but healthy) :)

What a week! I can't believe just last Saturday I was on stage for my 2nd fitness competition! :) Kinda surreal! :)
It's funny how as a competitor we all know that being stage ready isn't realistic in a normal, everyday life. That being said, I wasn't neccesarily LEAN enough, so where I was at on stage, is something I can realistically live with. Being cut-up/super defined/slightly dehydrated: NOT HEALTHY. The physique I strive for: Athletic/femenine/nice curves: VERY HEALTHY. So that's where I'm at. I'd like to maintain. Of course if I maintain right now, it would make the next show that much easier, and the possibility of coming in as lean as I need - much easier! :)

I have to say the week after competition can do a number on your mentality of the hard work you just put in for X-amount of weeks. I've heard it compared to Cinderella the night of your ball.....it all disappeared at midnight......interesting comparision. A sad one, but sometimes true!
I'm really, really trying to work hard on training and healthy food intake to prevent this from being my 'destiny'. I like where I'm at, and dang it, it's in my power to keep it that way.

Alright, enough babbling! I'm soooooooo excited for my trip home. My in-laws & sis-in-law are coming along, it's gonna be quite the trip!

I'll try and keep this updated more frequently, but it'll likely only be a few times a week!
