Training and Photo Shoot

Well, I can’t take a break. It’s honestly just too hard for me! I did take Sunday off, so technically Saturday and Sunday were totally off, but I was back at it Monday. I ate like shit Sunday and Monday and am definitely glad to be back to healthy eats today. I felt so sick to my stomach after two days of eating crap-ola! Yesterday i ran 5 miles and then did glutes/hams but didn’t go balls to the wall. I am trying to take it somewhat easy this week, although its hard when I feel like a bloated mess! Today I did back and shoulders together–a combo i’ve never done before–and I really liked it! I felt like my lats were screaming and i liked the supersets with the shoulder exercises. Finished off the workout with an hour of incline walking.
As for my photo shoot. Well, some of the pictures turned out great, and others I looked like a bloat boat. Here’s why: Saturday night after the competition, i indulged in some chocolate and cereal. I knew it wasn’t the best idea because of the photo shoot, but needed it man!!! Lol. Then Sunday morning came and my tan was still streaky from the Jantana. I called Joel(photographer) and told him that I didn’t think it was going to work out because of my tanning issues. I then proceeded to eat, eat, eat! I got a phone call back from Joel saying he already had rented some lenses and such and that I should just do it anyways and he can photo shop the tanning lines. I told him I’d scrub-a-dub dub and try to get more of it off. Soooo…..i feel like my stomach is way bloaty in most of the pics. Ahhh well…live and learn I guess right? Here are a few…the only one i actually LOVE is the one of me laying down…the others are just okay, but there will be more shoots. It is amazing how you can look so lean one day and then bloat up the next. It’s almost comical that your body is able to do that!

Also, if you are involved with any company or promotional organization that is looking for fitness models, I am trying to book some shoots so please send me an e-mail at

    I love the night time ones!! Your hard work has payed off, and your body has become a work of art. Absolutely beautiful!!

    You should look at getting a Model Mayhem page, I have a friend who models… it is a great place to make connections with photographers, and others in the industry.

    I totally don't see a bloated tummy but wow, you look great! I can't imagine how sick you feel eating that food after you had been so clean for so long!

    Hey, I've been meaning to ask, how's your brother?

    Alright fitness barbie but the crap lol!

    Kidding of course. You may have FELT bloated but you definitely don't look it. Like you said, just back to the clean eats and after a couple of days "carb body" will be long gone!

    I also think it's really smart of you to take the gym a little slow for a while. You don't want to end up injured or worse end up hating it!

    WOW! amazing pics! do try and get you a portfolio on there-its free!
    also,i so hear ya about the post show bloats! keep drinking the water down and try to clean it up some-BUT believe it or not your body needs that little binge weekend,just dont make it a binge WEEK,and all will be good-also try to get back started on the HIIT by monday of next week,try to kick things up a noth in the gym,starting NEXT WEEK-still get in cardio and weights this week but not as fierce-your body still needs rest,but i know we think alike so "active rest" for you!lol! with a next show so soon,you have to get back on the wagon NOW with nutrition..the bloats will be gone by weeks end if you just up your water and stick to complex carbs instead of junk…
    anyways,sorry for the book-
    i know i said this a hundred times,but i am so proud of you,and i know your 2nd show will be more fun for you than the last one!!!
    happy training!
