let them eat cake! …just not yet.

The lights go down.  The bikini comes off.  The contest prep is over.

You’ve done it.

You have earned your post competition meal.

Many people have asked me what I decided to eat after months of meal prep and my final week of tilapia and asparagus.  I wanted a burger.  And sweet potato fries.  And a cocktail.  And a milkshake.  And luckily, I heard all about PARK BURGER in RiNo.

Before I start salivating over my meal, let me take a minute and tell you about the service.  THIS PLACE BLEW MY MIND!  And as someone who works in the restaurant business, that statement doesn’t come easily to me.  I called ahead to make sure that they had everything I was looking for.  The host was thrilled that I wanted to celebrate there and assured me that they would accommodate our large party.  And then, later that night, she actually hugged me when I walked in the door and congratulated me on the show.  When people choose to celebrate your victories with you, even as a stranger, it makes the world a bit brighter.  Just sayin…

Okay…but there BURGERS!  I mean…and their milkshakes!  And don’t get me started on their sweet potato fries.  This praise will have to be cut short, because I literally DO NOT HAVE WORDS!


We are now approaching a week since my show, and while everyone else is thinking that, “Now you can EAT!” “Back to real life!” “Let’s grab a drink!”, I’m starting to panic.  This time is crucial for my metabolism and I’m struggling to get back on track and transition into my normal diet.  Preparation is key and I finally was able to make some time and prep my meals.  It’s only been a few days, but I can see the changes happening to my body RAPIDLY from being off track.  Healthy and smart choices are always necessary.  NO EXCUSES.

I’m not psycho.  And I know that it’s nearly impossible to maintain a show figure year round, but I can’t stress how important it is to stay focused when you set a goal.  Even after you finish it.  Set another one.  And then another.  #alwaysevolving

Thanks for listening.  Any and all of your tips for staying motivated are welcome!  Everyone needs someone, and maybe your words of encouragement will make a difference for someone!

It’s been a minute.  Life has been crazy!  But when is it not?

The WBFF Denver is tomorrow!

This has been a tough prep.  Between travel, new relationships gained, friendships lost, and $400 worth of prepared food being ruined during a hotel stay…I’m looking forward to all this hard work paying off tomorrow!  It doesn’t feel real, but it’s certainly happening anyway!



Competing with #teamfitchick this year has been a life changing experience for me.  The friendships that have been created are some that I hope will last a lifetime.  Training for a show is isolating, so I would highly recommend competing with a team for your first show, or any show for that matter.  It’s your support system.  And it’s worth is for the group text feed that occurs during peak week alone.


Near and far, I’ve got an amazing support system.  So, special thanks to all my family and friends.

I couldn’t do this without you.
