Confessions of a Pro Fitness Competitor

Sep 9, 2019 | Featured, Fitness, Isagenix, Nutrition, Personal - development

I do fitness competitions because I have a hard time staying accountable to myself. 

Now that I’m FORTY 😱, I can compete with 40+ year olds, instead of the young gals who don’t have kids 😂

This process involves overhauling my lazy lifestyle. This sport certainly is not for those who are just “interested.”

I increase my cardio from zero x/week to 6x/week. 
I increase my weight training from 2x/ week to 5x/week.
I carb cycle. 🚲 
I meal prep. 👩🏻‍🍳
I eat at least 5 meals a day. 😲
I check in with my coach regularly. 
I drink a gallon of water 💧 a day. 
I fit in 3 hrs of posing 👠 a week. 
I have weekly therapeutic massages 💆 and chiropractic adjustments when the schedule allows.


  • Complete Essentials with IsaG 
  • Eshot 💫
  • Ionix 🚀 
  • Shakes: All of them at various times. 
  • Greens 
  • Immune booster 💊
  • Isamune spray 🚿
  • AMPED Nitro and NOx preworkout ⛽️

My 5 week RESULTS: 
⬇️ body fat by 5+% 💃
⬇️ 4lbs on the scale
⬇️ 10 lbs body fat 🔥
⬇️ 38 millimeters total from 9 body points

⬆️ 5lbs+ lean muscle 💪

I’ve also found I ACTUALLY enjoy RUNNING OUTSIDE 😱😱😱😱 

Yes, some may say this sport is crazy. But so is being disgusted with myself and driving myself insane doing the same thing and getting the same old result. 

I may have been further along if I didn’t cheat so much🍕 or go on vacations, but hey, progress is progress ☺️ and each time I compete, I get a little closer to my overall goal: to make healthy living a habit naturally.

4 Days out from show

Falling From a High

“Mommy, did you cry when I was born?” Where did that question come from?  Is it because I cry at most of our family meetings?  Should I tell him the truth? Why wouldn’t I tell him the truth?  “No.  I didn’t cry when you were born.  (Feeling guilty...

My Journey – April 2012

My journey...April 2012 I was disgusted with myself. My son was almost 2. I was tired, sick, carb-overloaded. I did a detox and became vegetarian. June 2014 my daughter was 1.5 yrs old and there I was again, unhappy with my body. Dreading...

Tonight I breathe in peace

Great discussion tonight after a long day in clinic, on the road, open house, and delayed bedtimes. I know I'm not the only one rudely awakened to the adjustment of going back to school, being more adjustment than expected. What a shock to the...

4 years ago today

July 31, 2018 4 years ago today, I made a seemingly small decision that would change me in ways I couldn’t even fathom at the time.  2014, I was still uncomfortable in my own skin, covering myself up at the beach.  After maternity leave, my husband...

Constant comparison

Constant comparison. Negative self talk. Thinking everyone else had it together while I was falling apart. Being my worst critic. Focusing on lack. Giving up on myself, my health, my happiness, my dreams since what I was doing wasn’t working....

Being Top 5
