Hey Hey Everyone!!! I know I disappeared but so many things have been going in the past 6-9 months I feel like I have completely lost myself in order to finish what I needed to finish. In the process of graduating school, finding a job, finding a second job, breaking up with and getting back together with the boyfriend, I have gained a little bit more than I have wanted to and stopped training except for sporadically . So, now this is my new beginning, still working two jobs, kind of depressed because i feel i look awful and need to get out of this rutt. I have my old workout routine and diet that I got from Jenny Lynn that I am going to start doing again but if anyone has suggestions or ideas on how to really lean out I totally open to suggestions. I really have missed having people support me and help me through this, so I look forward to being back. HI!!!!!
Hey!!! I am working right now, the job I hate, at a sports modeling agency and then serving at a bar I worked at 2 years ago. I love serving, you make great money, I am on my feet all day and I talk all day. I am actually going to be going down in about 1-2 months to be with Darren, which makes staying at the yucky job that much harder LOL How are you???? And can I say nice abs!!! I can work out with you to get abs like that
Heheheh I know, I am horrible I am going to take today off, I am just really tired and my allergies have really been hurting lately. I sent my pics and profile off to Beverly Nutrition to get a diet and plan, hoping to maybe compete in October. How are you NT???
Ok here is the diet that Beverly gave me for the next 4 weeks. I think it looks doable. I am working with Julie Lohre there and I think I am going to have her help me with my works becasue she has legs I would kill for

Ok So I started my meal plan today, after eating not so good food last night. Went out ot dinner with some friends and had a few drinks also, we all graduated two weeks ago and a bunch of us are going to be moving and so we wanted to get together.
So today I have a choice between doing cardio and training. Luckily I did back and biceps earlier this week so I will do cardio on lunch and train tomorrow on lunch. I really feel I am ready to make this change and get back into a healthy lifestyle. Plus I am going to Cali next friday so I am going to really work my buns off. Need to look extra hot.
Meal 1- 3 egg whites, 3oz turkey, 4 strawberries
Meal - 2 scoops Nectar protein
30 minutes cardio
Meal 3- 5 oz chicken, 1 cucumber, 1tbsp flax oil
Meal 4- Protein shake
Meal 5- 6oz ground turkey and cucumber

Thanks. Yeah she has legs I would die for. I also just hired her to help me with the workouts and cardio. I can do the workouts to workout, but in regards to contst prep, that is a whole new realm for me.
Ok so last night was the best concert I have ever been too!!!! If anyone can go see Kenny Chesney and Gretchen Wilson, GOOOOOO
It was so amazing, they played for over 3 hours, almost 4. I was on my feet dancing all night!
Made work at the restaurant this morning super painful. Ok off to fold laundry and I do my first carb up tonight. Oh and just doing normal workouts, will start workouts from Julie on Monday and will post everything.
I did the Jenny workout plan, but I just didn't have time for the workouts she planned and do the cardio, plus I have found that the low carb with carb ups works really well for me. Beverly International is a great place, they do all their own supps and work on a nutrition plan to go with the supps and can prioritize which supps are a necessity and what are not. They are very smart people with quality products.
Ok so yesterday I did shoulders and 30 minutes of cardio and did my carb up. That was so much food! I got up and did cardio this morning on an empty tummy before working from 10-4. Was another slow day at work, but i think i made enough to pay to get my hair befoer I leave for Cali for the 4th!!
Ok so did legs yesterday and did interval cardio in the AM, am super sore today! It hurts to sit and thank goodness the carb up is scheduled for today because I am freaking starving and am a space cadet right now. Oh and was put off my cardio for today until tomorrow to help bring down water from carb up tonight. So tomorrow will be back and triceps.
Here is the workout with weights from yesterday.
Triple Super set:
Smith Squats wide legged with toes out (all wight is not including the weight of the bar): 16x50lbs, 12x70, 8x90, 8x90, 16x50
Weighted walking lunges: 8x15, 8x15, 8x20/15, 8x20/15 (legs got really wobbly and had crappy form so lowered the weight)
Straight Leg Deadlift (with Bar @ 45lbs): 12x20, 10x30, 8x30, 16x20 (was rought had to rest at 9 forarms went numb)
Leg Extension: 8x50, 9x60, 10x60, 11x60 (should have gone higher to start but wasn't sure how the legs would feel after the triple set)
Laying Leg Curls (don't like these my knees feel weird with too much weight): 8x40, 9x40/30, 10x30, 11x30
