I just competed in the IFBB Ft. Lauderdale Cup on October 8th & finished 8th - looked my best EVER! I also did 3 photo shoots a couple days before the show, can't wait to share those pics with you all!

So I decided to actually film a video of me in my posing suit so you can see my great conditioning and all of my full round muscles! :) I have been posting several new videos to my website of my contest ready body this month. You can preview the contents HERE. Or view all of the videos HERE...and check out the pics from the show weekend below.

I also posted LOTS of pics to my
FACEBOOK page, so check those out too! My next and last show of 2011 is the Kentucky Muscle, November 5th! I will also be in attendance at the NPC Nationals in Miami, FL November 18th & 19th.

In a New City & Establishing a New Routine!

Check out more pics of me in my temporary new city by clicking the link below!


For the past few weeks, I have been adjusting to living in a new city, and with that comes adjusting to a new routine. I have been fortunate to have experienced living in a few different parts of the country over the past 3 years. I love a new environment, different people, different pace of life, different scenery; it's really allowed me to grow both professionally and personally in such great ways. Very soon I will be moving one more time (always prompted by professional/job-related reasons) and staying put for a much longer time, so I am enjoying this adventure of multi-city living while I can! :) The hardest part for me about moving somewhere new is finding my routine. Anyone who is passionate about health and fitness and truly dedicated 365 days of the year to their fitness goals will tell you that routine is key to staying on track! I have to have my exact time of day that I schedule my workouts, when I prep and pack my food, which gym I am going to on which days (since I sometimes have at least a couple memberships), what's my split, etc. My routine becomes even more important working from home with online clients in order to stay on task and remain productive. Generally it takes me about a week or two after moving to find a daily routine that I am comfortable and satisfied with, and for me, finding this is extremely important in order to eliminate/minimize my own stress levels! Yes, I come across as easy-going and laid back but I can be pretty high strung behind the scenes. Sure it's good to be flexible too, but I can assure that you that any successful personal will tell you that a daily routine and structure is key to their success. I would encourage anyone who is struggling with meeting their goals - whether they be fitness, professional, or personal/emotional related - to take a look at their daily routine. Is there a routine? Do you fall off of the routine completely on weekends? Where are you lacking discipline? I think we all can say we are more productive when we have our daily set schedule. Here is what a typical weekday looks like for me:

6am: Wake up, take fat burners, get dressed and drive to gym

6:30am: Am cardio

7:45am: eat breakfast

8am: take dogs out for am walk

8:30am: answer emails, be active on social networking sites, study for CSCS

10:30am: eat meal #2

10:45am: write and update online training programs, study for CSCS

1:30pm: eat meal #3

2:00pm: walk to grocery store or anywhere else I have errands (I live in a downtown area, so I walk almost everywhere).

3:00pm: write for different blogs and online fitness magazines, edit video for my website and youtube, update my personal website. (Mondays and Fridays I will also do laundry here & other house cleaning chores)

4:00pm: eat meal #4; cook any food for next day needing to be cooked

5:00pm: feed and walk dogs

5:30pm: more email; social networking; drink an energy drink, coffee or take another fat burner

6:30pm: eat meal #5

7pm: drive to gym and workout! Weights and sometimes pm cardio

8:45pm: shower, watch TV, make to-do list for following day

9:30pm: eat last meal, drink some decaf coffee

10:00-10:30pm: Bed!


Am cardio and all meals and meal times remain the same. I workout earlier though, usually after meal 2 or 3 and I have a cheat meal Saturday night - yay! The rest of the day I shop, relax and do other errands, more email.

I Moved!! And how about more Bikini Sling Shot Action?

Training is going great this week. I added in a "Plyo" day last week which absolutely tore my hamstrings and glutes up!! ...in a good way of course :) I also added in more fish to my diet this last week which isn't a bad thing for me since I do love both Tilapia and Orange Roughy. My cardio is staying a little higher, but my calories are also a little higher than normal; I have a few more added fats in my diet as well as fibrous vegetables at 5 of my 6 meals. Last year I think I only had one meal where I ate a serving of veggies during prep!

I actually just posted all of the intricate details of both my workouts and nutrition & supplement program in the Members Section of my website.

I also posted a new gallery - "Ocean Sling" today!! Preview Pic above. View the entire 23 image gallery HERE

And lastly, I did move back to the South East - hurray! So happy to be back where it feels like home. You can read about my move from So Cal here: http://www.vitrixmodelteam.com/team-blog/cat-has-moved.html

Cardio and Pedi's

Today was a cardio day - double sessions on my favorites - the PreCore 100iT and treadmill. I woke up with my legs absolutely anihilated from training them the day before...SO sore. It took getting through my first 3 meals before they didn't feel sore anymore. But, I was a cardio queen today and KILLED it! Also thanks to my favorite burner - Lipo-6 Hers Black Ultra Concentrate, I had amazing energy for the whole day.

To treat my legs and feet for all of their hard work, I got a pedicure! This wasn't just any pedicure, this was an amazing pedicure. The massage was one of the longest and best I've ever had. It felt amazing on my sore shins and calves. Now my tiny lil toes are all dolled up with "Fiji Paradise" polish color and they feel amazing all soft and smooth and relaxed from their massage :)
