The road to competition.. Taking the sign

Wednesday, October 01, 2014      0 comments

I have been talking to my coach a fair bit lately, and last week when I e-mailed him progress pictures, he kindly asked if I would be ok doing a November show instead of the October 25th date I was aiming for. This was because, although I have i... Read more

Strong for a girl

Tuesday, September 23, 2014      1 comments

Last week, when I was doing my leg workout, I had this phrase said to me. "You're really strong for a girl." Bear in mind, at this particular point in time, I had just finished doing my 5th set of squats at 285lbs. Is that worthy of a compliment... Read more

Hey Sparkland! As some of you may already know, I have been training for my first figure competition for some time now. It is now down to the nitty gritty - my contest is in less than 12 weeks, and I need your help. I have devoted many hour... Read more

The road to competition.. Life update and body stats

Thursday, June 12, 2014      1 comments

..that I have decided to go down a path I had only toyed with before. My new Sparkpage design brings in targets, as I have now honed in on exactly what is going to happen. I've thought about competing before, thinking it'd be fun to do once... Read more

Meltdown warning!

Tuesday, July 09, 2013      6 comments

I just can't do it anymore. I can't continue on the way I am, pretending that nothing's wrong. This is not going to be a happy blog. This is not going to be focused on my weight loss. This is literally the culmination of every horrible thought t... Read more

What an AWESOME weekend

Sunday, March 24, 2013      4 comments

Holy craaaaap, this weekend was amazing. I was actually attending a course this weekend. That may not seem like a very interesting thing to be doing to most people, but I liked it for a multitude of reasons. I love to learn things, anything... Read more

Don't blog in forever, then two blogs in one day. Madness I say! But it had to be done. I was supposed to be at a course today, but they cancelled it due to the snow storm we're experiencing. The course happened to be at my own gym, so I fi... Read more

Behind the scenes

Friday, February 08, 2013      3 comments

I just realized that I haven't actually written a blog here since I started my new job, and that seems like an awfully silly thing for me to have done. Granted, I do tend to spend somewhere between 10 and 12 hours at the gym now because of it, b... Read more

The Devil's Cupcakes (*WARNING*: Lots of trigger foods, all at once)

Friday, December 14, 2012      6 comments

Kind of delayed, seeing as how I made them last week, but I hadn't gotten around to getting the pictures off my camera. Now that I have, I present to you the incredibly evil, incredibly delicious cupcakes I made for Derek's birthday. Althou... Read more

I have not blogged in aaaaaages. Sheesh. What's been going on, what's been going on..... Well, I handed in my resignation at the bakery last week, so Sunday is officially my last day there. I'm really excited to be stepping into a new ... Read more

It's been a while since I was happy enough to break out my wiggle butt dance, but today called for it. As if I needed any further indication that it's the right idea for me to become a trainer... I registered for the certification cour... Read more

Things! Things and stuff!

Holy crap, there is a lot going on in my life right now. And for once, it's pretty much all good! First of all, I'm officially going down the personal trainer route. I know, I know. It's cliche. Lose weight, get healthy, become a trainer. B... Read more

Madness marathon!

I did it, I did it, I did ALL OF IT! Now, I did something I shouldn't have done to give me the opportunity to do it, but I don't feel the least bit bad. I called in injured to work (I told my manager I had badly pulled my shoulder at t... Read more
