Wow.... I had an incredible Christmas, and I really hope you all did too! This year was my first year "hosting" Christmas dinner, I have to say it WAS a lot of work and I would love to do it all again but I have decided to go away on a trip instead and only spoil the kids next year!!! Don't you think Christmas IS just for the kids anyways?? I DO! Hehehe well... Guess I'll just have to see what the rest of my family thinks of this. Lol hopefully I'll be able to recruit everyone and we will still be able to spend the holidays together. :)
On another note: I had an amazing trip to Vegas for a friends wedding on new years I think it was a great idea to go on a vacation before my contest prep, by the end of the trip I couldn't wait to start "on-season". I made some great new friends in LV, and I feel very blessed to have them in my life. Amazing supporters!!

Well I'm shaping up for the Max Muscle contest and making an appearance the Arnold Classic. I'll be helping out @ the Whey Gourmet booth for that weekend, so make sure you pop by and say hi to me. I'll be a few weeks out from the max muscle show then too.
Everyone always asks what my diet consists of so here is a sample of what my diet looks like right now:
Meal 1- protein shake & 1 scoop Whey Gourmet, 1/2 cup of berries & fibre
Meal 2- 1/2 banana, 1 tbsp of almond butter
Meal 3-mixed green Salad, balsamic dressing, 4oz chicken or turke
Meal4-1 grape fruit & 1 Whey Gourmet Bar
Meal5- asparagus, 4oz fish
Meal 6- post training---chicken, brocolie, 2 pieces of pineapple, 1/2 cup brown rice
Meal7- Protein Brownie with fibre
I'm doing a full 12 week prep, I usually only do 6-8 weeks but decided to do 12 this time and come in a little tighter! I've been taking
Pharmashred every morning before my cardio sessions on an empty stomach and then I have Xtravol while I train weights in the evenings. I'm still continuing my same training style but I've added heavy weights.
I have to make a huge shout out to my clients they are all so unbelievably motivating and seeing them reach their goals, set new ones and continue to succeed and see changes is what training is all about!! Keep up the hard work ladies it's a new year and you've already made a new new you!!!
