Why I Got Started
dot

During my college years, I decided that the way I was eating and living wasn't going to cut it for the rest of my life. I started going to the gym religiously in 2007 and met amazing people that have been competing for years.

They helped inspire me and gave me enough confidence and motivation that pushed me through the hours of throwing weights and hours of cardio to compete in my first figure show in April 2008. I didn't place that year - bummer.

I wasn't about to give up that rush though, so I pushed through another year and competed again in April 2009 and placed 3rd in Wisconsin-Fox Cities! I was so pumped! Watching my body transform is what feeds my energy.

The diet is probably my least favorite part, but I would eat cardboard if I had to! I feel so healthy and powerful. Here is a great quote that I did think about that got my butt out of bed in the morning: "Pain is temporary ... quitting lasts forever" by good ol' Lance Armstrong.

How I Did It

I would wake up at 4 a.m. and drive to the gym to get a couple hours of cardio in before I went into work. I'd go back home, eat, shower and arrive at work at 8 a.m. I lift weights during my lunch break and would finish my cardio after work at 5 p.m. Yes, I lived in the gym.

I am grateful to have such a supportive boyfriend who was there for me and put up with my shenanigans during show prep! I couldn't have done it with out Eric and Tracy Mason who helped me diet and were my lifting partners. As for Grad School, I'd fit that into my evenings and weekends, seeing that my classes are online through my University.

Knowing that I'd be on stage having people judge my body is great incentive to do that extra time on the cardio equipment! I kept a food journal and wrote down every last almond that I ate and kept totals of calories, fats, carbs, and protein along with my weight.

I also keep a workout log that keeps track of all the exercises I do along with amount of cardio. I was extremely busy working full time, grad school, boyfriend and preparing for the show. My life was extremely scheduled - but I like schedule, so I was okay with that.

Diet

This is my content-prep diet plan:

I drink around 1.5 gallons of water each day (usually with Crystal Lite). I also have coffee every morning, green tea, and an occasional diet pop.

I got one cheat meal a week. I usually went for puppy chow (aka: muddy buddies)! I really support the one cheat meal a week because it is a light at the end of a long tunnel.

When you know that in a few days you can fill yourself up with whatever you want, it keeps you going and giving it your all. Not only that, it positively messes with your metabolism when it is used to eating so clean and with restricted calories.

We have all been newbies and walked into a gym wide eyed looking at some contraption that looks like a Medieval torture device. Walk in with confidence, ask your questions, and pat yourself on the back - after all, you are there, so give it 100%!
