I have been MIA for awhile. I did do the Muslcemania and was very disappointed in the outcome. I am waiting to get pics back so ya'll can critique. All in all I personally was quite happy with my physique that day ( of course there is always room to be bigger and leaner ). Unfortunately I am not one of the judges, (cuz I would have made me first place hahahahaaha) OK JOKE< but I was in pretty good condition that day. Nothing I can do about the outcome again though so...
Since I never give up and I love a challenge, I am switching over to the OPA and doing a show Nov.2/02. We'll see how things go.
I am going to be much more faithful with my logging, cuz ya'll know how good I am at that. hehe. I have time now for this stuff since I'm retired.
So, I worked out all last week with my wonderful training partner. Then I took all this week off to get my CNS back on track. I found a wonderful trainer in TO who is going to check out all my stats and tell me what's what. We'll take it from there and see what happens.
So hey kids, I missed you all. Kuso? PB? and all the wonderful girlz on here.
Except right now I have to get over my drinking binge. LMFAO what's new. This will last until the end of August. That gives me 2 more months until my next comp.
I will start logging on Monday. Bye kids. Take care.
Me and my friend are very drunk right now and she just fell off her chair so I am almost peeing my pants laughing at her. She is apparently efferevescent right now whatever that is supposed to mean. LOL.
OMG w8. LOL my friend says I look scared about something haha. OK, now I definitely have to get some better pics up.
Bye the way, my SH#1 only placed 5th. I was quite surprised. I personally thought he looked extra yummi onstage, but maybe the judges don't look at him the same way I do.
OK , OK, enough. SH#1 is still just a " (special) friend". There are far too many fish in the Ontario Lakes to settle...

Okay yeah...the first one in Ontario to do a Figure division Let me know how it goes...I've competed w/ them once..my first time....very professional, always on time..I think you'll notice a big difference from what you're used to No dicking around in that organization!
P.S....I could take your pic down if you want, I should have asked your permission first :o
Now I'm having troubles with my mouse. Agghhhhh! Keyboard and mouse are less then a year old!
Anyways, I'm back at the gym tomorrow, or today considering it's 3:50am. Don't even ask why I'm up (has something to do with those gosh darn tasty brews ).
It was another kinda good weekend. No complaints except I'm really hooked on this one guy - for the last 3 months now- OK I'll admit it I'm infatuated like crazy. Even told SH#1 about him. Gotta be honest right?
Well I was looking at some of my pics again from Musclemania and am - to be honest- bitter as hell again about my non placing. I can't wait to do the OPA show and see what their judging is like. In a way it's good cuz it sure adds fuel to my fire to keep getting better!!!
I haven't gone to the gym yet, hang on, gotta save my huggie bear from the top bunk bed...
OK he doesn't want to be saved he's just playing games with me. He's starting to say words like NO LOL, and ta dah, and uh oh, and mom. It's so darn cute I just wuv him to pieces.
Hang on, gotta crack a beer tee hee...I know, I know I said I'd stop, but it's August and I well you see it's like this...
My best friend of 20 years just moved down here (6weeks ago) to ON to live with me all the way from AB. The first time I got drunk at 15 it was with her LMAO. So you see, we have a long history of growing up and partying. Now that she's here, and I hadn't seen her in 2 years we have a lot of catching up to do. She's actually in Niagara Falls today checking out places. I thinks were gonna make the move and live out there for awhile. And I mean all of us LOL. Her, her boyfriend, her 2 kids, me and my 4 kids, 2 dogs, 4 cats and 2 gerbils. LOL. Stressfull you ask? NOOOOO, OK, well a little, but mostly it's been great.
Niagara Falls is beautiful country. I've been working in the Falls 2-3x a week for the past few months anyways so it would save the commute. The only problem is getting my 14yr old daughter to bend. She's quite upset with another move and I don't blame her.
OK back to the gym part. I will be getting my butt in there sometime tonight, and go tanning. It's back to some serious hardcore workouts. I am also going to be going back on the creatine next week for 5 weeks and dedicating myself to doing cardio. For the Musclemania I'd only squeezed in about 4-5 cardio sessions in a 2 months time period. Regardless of bodyfat levels, I want to keep my heart health up mostly.
My diet today has consisted of beer, water, and a pork chop. I realize that this is not the best diet LMFAO, but at least I'm getting some calories and nutrients in right? Help me here folks, I'm all about justifying my actions.
Since I've been semi retired, I've been averaging about 8hrs of sleep a night for the past month and I love it!!!
My diet's been pretty good all this time since the comp. I did do a little post comp. bloat and put on about 8-10 lbs, but have dropped around 4lb now. I'm sitting at around 125lb right now. Not too bad.
My goal is to keep my weight where it's at, but increase the lean mass and drop the bodyfat. I'm aiming to compete in the middleweight class at 118-120lb ripped. If I can put on 3-4lb of muscle in the next 12 weeks I'll be right where I want.
So that's my story so far for today kids! Gotta finish scubbing the fort down and cook up some grub for all the wee ones.
Other than the pork chop, beer and water I had another pork chop before my workout.
After my workout I had a:
HUGE salad of romaine,iceburg, radichio and a few other items which constituted 13cals. Whoooooo! But I added 250gm of 1% cottage cheese totalling 220cals, plus 2tbsp of this awesome dressing called "Creamy Poppy Seed" which came out to 120cals. I love that dressing. And since I usually only make my own, I am on a mission to mimic the poppy seed dressing. Oh yes, it will be done! Then I can feel justified to eating it!
After that throughout tonight I have nibbled on BEER, 5 strawberries, 5grapes, 8salt and vinegar chips and I think that's it. I've been pretty good...well OK except for exsessive amounts of Beer.
Next week my diet will be on track. Right now I'm concentrating on drinking properly and responsibly he he he he he, and eating well, but exessivelly.
Hey there girl!!!!!!!!!!! Great to hear that your back with us again!!! Man, did you put in a formal request to get the judges eyes checked?!! Man what a role model you've turned out to be!! Body-for-life certainly gave you the body!!!!! Man, you look stunning!!!!
Semi-retired ...... is that what you call it?!!! Never lose that beer diet you seem to have down so well.......as my old grandfather used to say..."Theres a steak and three veg in every glass" So your still getting all the requirements needed......right......just helping you justify!!!!!
Keep up all the good work.....hope the kids are fine and the animals!!!! Must away and see to my littles rug rat.....she thinks she can cook now.......you should see the kitchen!!!!
Smile at your enemies, it'll drive them crazy.........'cos that twinkle in your eye means your up to something!!!!
LOL Esmeralda. I love feeling justified!!! Especially while I'm sitting here at 3:30am and still drinking.
I went to the gym again today, surprise surprise!
Did back and abs. BTW my pecs and biceps are quite tender today. Hopefully my back and abs will feel the same way tomorrow. I can only hope that by Sunday every muscle group will be stiff, sore, and hurt.
Oh and sleep. Well I was probably in bed for 9-10hrs, but not sleeping. It was that 'can't sleep cuz too much booze' thing.

I gotta see if I can remember everything I ate today.
When I got up I had about 200gm 1%cottage cheese and a banana. I love fruit. It's so nice to eat it again, but that's gonna stop around mid September.
Hmmm I also ate some strawberries and rasberries today. 2bites of homemade spaghetti w/meat sauce. Oh a couple of yucky tasting blueberries. Pooey. Ick. They were sour and nasty. Hmmmm BEER of course. Oh yea baby! About 20oz. of beef throughout the day. I think I had another banana. I really didn't keep track today. Oops. But it a good eating day. No bad stuff. Ah a huge salad again w/ that yummi Creamy Poppy Seed dressing. You guys gotta try it. It's by Kraft. They also have a yummi rasberry vinagrette one too. I gotsta figure out a more healthy way of copying those dressings using Omega Essential oil blend and other good stuffs.
OMgosh kids. Today I had a hangover too! I never get hangovers and today I was afraid to get out of bed. I felt like such crap!!! But I got my butt outta bed and started cleaning the house and stuff and by about 7:00pm tonight finally felt better. Then I went to the gym. I really think that drinking more today helped take the edge off that nasty hangover. Ya think?!
Hmmm don't know why I had one though. It's a rare occasion, but it didn't stop me. Oh no, I fought back with a vengeance and poured more alcohol down me throat.
Tomorrow I'm going to train shoulders and triceps. I realize this is totally off topic from my last paragraph
I watched some SCTV last night (yes I'm that old haha) and didn't know how much I'd really missed Ed Grimly I must say. LMFAO. OH I must say...
