Legs & Arms Workout


It’s officially spring, but I am still in denial. I know I’m in the minority, but I’m not done with my snowboarding and snowshoeing adventures quite yet. The slopes here in Colorado are still open for another month, so I plan to squeeze every last drop out of winter. And remind myself that Spring really […]

Upper Body Focus Workout (Chest, Back, and Shoulders)


How is your “Spring Forward” adjustment going? I feel like it always takes me at least a week to adjust to the time change. I don’t miss the morning daylight and I really appreciate the extra daylight after work, but for some reason it’s just harder to get out of bed. That lost hour is […]

Who am I kidding, I love any excuse to celebrate. My celebrations actually started last week with festivities at work. Since it […]

How to Choose Your First Bikini Competition


As you know by now, I’m currently training for my second bikini (physique) competition. Going into my first show last year, I didn’t know much about what to expect and I learned a lot as I was going through the process. Since I’ve gotten a lot of questions about competitions recently, I thought it might […]

Can Comparison Be Good?


We’re halfway through the week, but it feels like the start of the week for me. I’ve been finding this awful respiratory infection that has completely knocked me out since Sunday. I am very rarely sick (typically once per year), so being out of work for 2 days straight is unheard of for me! As […]

My Bikini Competition Transformation


I’m about two and a half weeks removed from my first bikini competition and it seems like so long ago. Between my business trip to San Francisco and Thanksgiving in Atlanta, I’ve been all over the country since the show! That extra time has given me plenty of time to reflect and I’m ready to […]
