Oh wow! I just found this thread! haha...Thanks for the compliments everyone, they definitely are appreciated! Prep is definitely ahead of schedule, according to Mike, but it's good because it means I still get to keep my cheat meal in! But man, by the time I get to Saturday, I am just famished and ready to EAT. I'm at about 135 lbs as of today....already down 11 lbs since December 1 (peak of my off-season)! Thank you for your support everyone. It means so much :)

OMG, I sliced open my hand last night cutting open a Spaghetti Squash!! I was using a HUGE machete kitchen knife. I went to the ER and got 5 stitches, now I'm in a splint. No way it's keeping me outta the gym though...I just killed an intense interval program on the step mill and I'm working around this temporary injury. Damn Spaghetti Squash!! LOL

Hey Ali! Yes that is 11 per week. 6 days I have post-workout sessions and 5 days I also have evening sessions.

Hey girl, I am sorry for your hand, bummer.... I hope you are well. Jim and I are doing great and I am feeling good and training hard to do well for the 09 season, I hope. I will start out the yr. with Jr. USA, I am truly excited. I hope you have a blast with your first pro show. How exciting, I will be watching. Keep me posted. I won't be at the Arnold this yr. unfortunatly I have to work a client's wedding and won't make it up north. Next yr. hopefully. Have a great weekend and I am excited for you to work with Species. Dave P is a brilliant man. Jenn Toth is with them too, she is so sweet, I do believe she is doing the Europa show too. I will be rooting for both of you two. Take care girl, Mo

Thanks, Brandie!! It's just annoying trying to grasp things and modify certain exercises to machines, when the SLOWEST people in the gym are on all the machines LOL I'm just impatient when it comes to that. So Ali, to answer your question, that is how I am lifting!! There are always ways, I just have to train a little differently over the next week, but not much. When is your next show, Ali?

How is your training and diet process going, Brandie?? I'm excited to be competing at a show with you! It's been awhile!

Thank you Krissy! It was fun getting to chat over appletinis :) Seriously, it's such a treat taking one in with me to the gym everyday, haha....only 3 weeks left! Did you say you might be coming out all this way for it? Let me know if so!

How is the hand Cat? Hope you feel better.

OMG Cat I'm so sorry about your hand! I had no idea! I hope you're feeling better!! =(

I've been meaning to respond to the well wishes! My hand is doing much better, thank you. It's healed up well...still a nice scar, but it's diminishing :) I need some steel kitchen gloves with all the vegetable chopping I'm always doing. That's it, I should invent steel kitchen gloves and make an infomercial targeted toward the fitness community; I just know they would be a HUGE success :)

Everything though, every ounce of hard work (as you know) is so worth it!!

You should see what she looks like in person right now! I trained with her and Jason today, and my jaw nearly hit the floor when I saw her. Cat looks UNBELIEVABLE! And here I had to pose next to her...ahhhh!!!!! I don't know if I've ever seen someone train so hard though. She deserves every bit of success she's achieved in this sport. Cat, SOOO PROUD OF YOU! You're gonna blow em away babe!

I'm so glad you were able to come up and train/pose, Jenna! I know I've got blinders on in the gym (esp now!), but it's great having friends create that supportive, energetic gym environment while you train. That's what we love about our gym, is the understanding and respect everyone has for people in our sport. Anyone coming in the for the show should train at it (Gold's Gym Dr. Phillips on Sand Lake Rd) - you won't be disappointed! You look great, Jenna, you've come a long ways in a year! Keep focused and be confident in yourelf :) Thank you so much for your sweet words once again!!

Your texts always come at the perfect time, Lori! Looks like May might work afterall and then yes! C.F. and Bob Evans (Mel will vouche for B.E.) it is!


Cat, you look AMAZING!!! I can't wait to see you blow everyone away in your pro debut!!! Best of luck and keep your head in it because you really have taken an already amazing physique to the next level!

Tiani, I have to tell you how much your words mean to me : "you really have taken an already amazing physique to the next level!" This has been the goal ever since I stepped off stage at Jr. Nat's last year. Sometimes it can be difficult to stay such a focused course when you have so long and so far to go, but I see now how everyday of the past 10 months mattered in making the changes I wanted to make. Thank you for the incredible compliments and I wish you MUCH success this year in your fitness endeavors :)

hey girl!

almost time! GOOD LUCK!!! and we have the camp set up in PA for mike.. you and J should come! :)
Awesome! When will it be?

You look amazing girlie! Go rock it!

Ditto, girl!! Home stretch, let's get ready for a fun and exciting weekend in the VERY near future!
