How I Got Started

Bodybuilding is something I have been passionate about for more than nine years. I trained regularly and enjoyed seeing the changes in my body. Competing as a bodybuilder was something other people did, not I. Then I met my coach in August 2006. He was going to change all that.

One day, January 29th 2007, he challenged me, "Join me in a 12 week pre-contest diet." "You're on," my answer was immediate. This way I would get to experience what it would be like to be a bodybuilder without having to compete ... PERFECT ... or so I thought.

He set me up with a training and nutrition program. I started off with a weight of 123 pounds on a 5-foot-2 frame and my body fat was 21.1%. I sent him my food log every 2 weeks and he changed the program accordingly. One short month later I had dropped down to 115 pounds and my body fat was now 19.7%.

Something he said to me in mid-March helped me realize that he saw true potential. With great trepidation I took my decision to my coach. I was going to be a BODYBUILDER! With great expertise he crafted and tweaked programs to suit me.

The changes were happening rapidly. 112 pounds by late March and 17.3% body fat. By April 9th we were down to 16.1% body fat. Friday, June 8th, weighing in at a mere 100 pounds and at 10% body fat we had achieved our goal. I was ready for the bodybuilding stage the next day in Edmonton.

With his wonderful support and guidance in training, nutrition and everything else related to bodybuilding, I was able to step on stage and make a dream come true. What an unbelievable experience!

A Poem From My BodyBlog

    In The Master's Hands

      In his mind's eye he saw it well,
      The vision to create, the story to tell.
      With his skillful hands he gently molded,
      A figure so strong, he'd soon behold it.
      He toiled patiently for days and weeks,
      The image would shortly have reached its peak.
      He encouraged and coaxed and shaped the clay,
      With perseverance, he'd have his way.
      It finally happened, the statue emerged,
      With pride in his heart, the Master surged.
      The woman he created for all to see,
      That woman, you know, that Woman is ME.
