6 freak'n days!!!!

Sorry I did post earlier but I've been pretty focused. I can't believe it's 6 days until my competition! I'm so pumped, nervous, excited and ready all at the same time! This week is the crazy week to get everything together. I need to get my painting/tanning going, nails, hair and last minute things done and together. Hoping I can figure out how to make nice waves in my hair instead of curls. Goodness it's difficult! I've almost shaved it off again lol. I know I'll work something out with though. Just need some practice lol. I can do amazing curls though!

I hope everyone is having an amazing Easter weekend! It's so gorgeous out. I love Spring! Last night was the celebration with the fam and it was difficult! Desserts and loads of food I can't have. But this is my choice and I fought through the temptation. I ate the food out of my Tupperware containers and braved the inquiries of why I don't eat what everyone else it. Answering the questions actually helped keep me on track and I'm so glad and grateful everyone was so understanding and supportive. I'm a lucky girl!

This past week I received all my suits for the competition and I'm so relieved lol. I needed to have my pink figure suit altered and it was blinged out. My sportswear was blinged just a bit more and my bikini suit is just amazing! Practicing yesterday with my Manchester Mamas helped sooo much! LeeAnne gave us a kick booty workout. Literally! And all the extra help with posing from Tracy and the other girls rocked. Love you ladies!

I realized yesterday that no matter how I place I have had the opportunity on this journey to meet the most amazing ladies ever. I'm so lucky and grateful to have all these women in my life and the friendships I've made are worth more than anything. I learn more and more each show I compete in. Also my coach, Janelle Nicolo, knows what she's doing and has me looking even better than last year! Love this woman! LOL!

Well, this week is it. Send some positive thoughts my way for Saturday the 30th. You can watch live on ESPN 3 or online, which will be streaming live, here at http://www.musclemania.com/ .

Thanks everyone for keeping up! Lots of Love!

2 1/2 weeks!

Hi everyone!

I'm now 17 days away from show time! I am so pumped and can't wait! It's getting a little tougher but it's so worth it. I've been lucky enough to have not felt the effects of depleting until this week. It's been amazing! My coach, Janelle Nicolo, is amazing and totally knows exactly what she's doing. I still of course have little panics that I won't be ready but then I just remember to keep the faith and know that she has everything under control. The Cathy Savage Fitness plan is amazing and I totally recommend it to anyone interested in competing. I normally get my friends hooked on it lol!

I had promised a photo in my sportswear outfit but unfortunately it's being blinged a little more so it's postponed. Sorry! I did however get to go over my sportswear walk, bikini walk and got my figure posing down as well I think I can. Practicing everyday and getting strange looks at the gym when I bust out a front pose in between sets. LOL!

This past weekend I had the honor of traveling down to Connecticut with 2 amazing chicks! LeeAnne and Nicole were totally my support system this weekend. I really needed to stick to my nutrition and workout plans and these 2 ladies made sure it happened! We headed down to Stamford on Friday night and hit up Lindsay Messina's Diva Workshop on Saturday morning. What a great time! I got to meet lots of new Savage Girls and reconnect with some I already knew. Loved it! Some of the ladies are competing this weekend and I know those ladies are gonna rock it! Good luck girls!

Sunday we had a great workout at the hotel and then headed home. We were looking for someplace to get lunch but ended up on a bit of an adventure. LOL! Eventually we found a great little diner that had veggie burgers! Yay!

So this week I'm hoping my Passion Fruit Design bikini comes in. I'm so excited to see it! And wear it! And show it off : ) It's going to look amazing! I did however find that I got a package from the kick a@# company MetroMint water. It was samples of their amazing water, a bag and 2 shirts. Awesome! I'm totally a pusher for these guys and you should totally try some of their water.

Who's looking forward to this weekend? This girl is! I'll be hanging out with LeeAnne and her hubby John. We're going to be seeing Larry the Cable guy after some dinner on Saturday night. Also posing and workouts with my Manch Sunday Session ladies. And...... I'll be sending out gift packs to my homies who were nice enough to purchase gifts off my wishlist. Speaking of wishlist guess who's birthday is next week????? ME! Tuesday is my birthday but I won't be celebrating until April 30th after my competition.

If anyone is interested in seeing my competition it'll be streaming live online and on ESPN 3. The show will be at Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut if anyone would like to come. I love the support. : )

Ok, that's it for me. Blog ya next week! Hugs!

Fitness Tip---- When on the stairmill at the gym try taking wider steps for 5 min intervals. So wide you almost hit the sides of the machine. It feels awkward at first but totally works different muscles.

3 and 1/2 weeks!!!

Hey world!

So I'm about 3 1/2 weeks away from competition and I'm pumped! I received my sportswear outfit 2 days ago and practiced some posing in it. I love it! I was going to put up a pic in it but if I'm going to keep going in order everyone has to wait until next week. LOL. Sorry! I am adding a couple more stones to it this week. I'm soooo excited! And I have my sportswear walk all worked out. My theme is the Terminator! Yes I love Arnold and I'm totally hooked on those movies. LOL! I even have a toy gun I get to bring out onstage!

This past week I got my new workouts for the month from Cathy Savage Fitness. They are awesome! I absolutely love them! My goodness! They are killing me and I'm making sure to leave it all in the gym. I almost have to crawl out of there lol.

Last Sunday was my first Sunday back at Session in 2 weeks. It felt amazing! It's the best way to start the week. Getting my butt handed to me by Coach Lauren, the support of my Savage Sisters and the chance to prance around in Cinderella shoes and a sparkly bikini. Who could ask for anything more????!!!!! These ladies are totally my motivation and I'm the luckiest girl ever to have their support. It's what gets me through those days when I just wanna half-ass it. Love you ladies!

This weekend I'm headed to CT/NY with my girls LeeAnne and Nicole. I can not wait! We are going to be hitting up Diva Workshop with some of our Savage Sisters and getting our sweat on. Last time Lindsay Messina trained us at Camp Savage I had trouble walking for like 2 days! This should be amazing and I'm not gonna lie I might be a little scared. LOL. Can't wait to see you girls!

Well, time for me to enjoy the rest of my day. Lucky me I already finished my cardio and workout. This week we'll end it with a recipe for you guys. Lots of people ask me about cooking with tofu so here's one of my favorite breakfast items. : )


Tofu Scramble

5.6 oz tofu

1/2 c chopped broccoli

1/4 c chopped onions

1/4 c chopped mushrooms

1/4 c chopped peppers

1/4 c chopped celery

1/2 TBSN coconut oil

Curry Powder

Chilli Powder

Garlic Powder

Onion Powder

I usually warm up my skillet and add the 1/2 TBSN coconut oil and add everything in. I cook it for about 15 mins and then add all my spices and cook for about another 5 mins. I love it!

For my starches with this usually I go with old fashion oats, 1/4 c strawberries and 1/2 TBSN coconut oil.

Hope you enjoy it!
