Hey Sharon! Beni's pink outfit is Brazilian fitness wear, Gahuer to be exactg ( i know cause i have it lol).... check out www.fitnessetc.com for cute brazilian fitness stuff!!!:awesome:

hello glad u like the outfit I have so many different ones from that brand.. that gear will make any mama look hotter you'll scorch in those outfits...I like them so much that I plan on sellin them in the near future... I have been talkin to the owner of company and well there is a lot of red tape with customs and shipping but it is cheaper to get it from manufacture than a wholeseller...any way their Spanish is different from here so you can just imagine that convo(lol) but we will see what happens, only thing with that particular gear is that it is one size fits all and if I have a difficult time with tops fittin well hows it gonna sell with one who is a little more endowed top wise in my case it's not the boobs but back width damm their tight but looks fa-bu.

I think it all depends on what your eating?

I once went a week only eating eggs and tuna. The last day of the week I could only manage to eat a 1000 calories. I wasn't hungry at all and had to force myself to eat.

Women especially have a very hard time with carbs.

:) Hi D thanks for the kind words, were you @ the AC? I Met Athena, great gal and super nice I enjoyed her company very much, wish I coulda met U 2. Anyways I weighed myself after the athlete's meeting just to see where I was at. The scale said 116 this was Thursday before prejudging so after carbing up maybe a few pounds heavier but I never really dried out kept peeing about 8 ounces every hour to hour and a half:p but at my pro debut in Dallas I weighed in at 105, so I really really tried this time to eat...eat and eat and lift as heavy as I could then I had a minor set back when I dislocated my left elbow at the nine week mark and ended up havIN a small tear in the left bicep that did not let me lift for almost 6 weeks but then from there I tried to make up for lost time from not working upper body so I had to put it into high gear and still be cautious not to re injury myself... Oh well thats how life goes you never know what to expect from one day to the other. Many thanks for the kind words I'm gonna go to sleep didn't get in till after 11 pm last night from my trip and have only slept a total of 5 hours these last few days and I am dragging right now, I need to stop trying to do too many things.

Hey all thanks for the encouragement and as to the question about downsizing....I really feel I need too but my boys and hubby seem to think otherwise. They think I'm not big nor am I really small and should just concentrate on maintaining but I dont know. As of now I am just playing it by ear and doing what I feel I need to do for the moment...if that makes any sense:p anyways here is another vid from same workout. I have some more i have not loaded up do to sheer laziness and the fact that I HAVE a lot of wifely duties I must attend to first and being at the computer adding uploading is not one of them:rofl:.

Hey Beni...gosh, is that what folks think of my photography? I'd guess to say that HerBiceps publishes the least amount of that kind of material in the industry. Occasionally, circumstances demand shooting in a hotel suite and we've done thousands of shoots over the years with all sorts of competitors so I can't say a girl has never bent over for a photograph...I think your experience shooting with Jeff is absolutely typical for a HerBiceps shoot.

Hey Beni...gosh, is that what folks think of my photography? I'd guess to say that HerBiceps publishes the least amount of that kind of material in the industry. Occasionally, circumstances demand shooting in a hotel suite and we've done thousands of shoots over the years with all sorts of competitors so I can't say a girl has never bent over for a photograph...I think your experience shooting with Jeff is absolutely typical for a HerBiceps shoot.
