What a difference a day makes. Yesterday was a mental f$@k for me. It was the first time I stepped on the scale in over 2 weeks and I was not pleased to see how much weight I put on. My goal was no more than 10-15lbs and I was at 18lbs up. So, needless to say, I was not happy. But today...today I used that weight to motivate and push myself. I hit two new PRs (160lb Bench Press for 5 reps and 65lbs DBs Incline Presses for 6 reps). My strength is coming back full force and it reminded me to embrace my offseason and to stop stressing on the number on the scale and JUST LIFT!! Bigger and harder in 2019..that’s the goal!! #gains #competitor #npc #wpd #offseason #newpr #chestday #smile #lifeisgood #teamtitanfit
Not gonna lie..some days I really miss being lean. But then, I see the buffer, fluffier version and am reminded that I kind of like this version too. I’ve been off track for a couple of weeks due to nothing other than life. I splurged on birthday desserts. I enjoyed lunch and dinner dates with the hubby. I didn’t meal prep one meal in the last two weeks. I even put on a little more weight than I wanted. And you know what?? I did it all without any guilt. That may not be a big deal to most, but that’s huge for me. I have struggled so many times post competition to have a healthy relationship with food. I usually go WAY off the rails and then feel guilty as hell and hate the way I look and feel. But, I needed the mental and physical break from being on a structured diet. I needed to relax and just enjoy a PB&J or a bowl of ice cream if I wanted. It was a nice breather to get me refocused and a much needed reset. Now.. I’m ready to reel it in and continue to crush the last two months of this offseason. I have goals and I will reach each one of them with the help of my swolemate @jasonrdeutsch and my coach @chrisford_ifbbpro . Ready..set...GAINS!! #gains #gainsville #offseasson #competitor #npc #wpd #womensphysique #fitforties #fitmama #teamtitanfit at NAS North Island Fitness and Sports Complex
Man, I love the off season!! Yeah, my abs are gone, but my butt is back, muscles are full, and strong as an ox. Crushing every workout and leaving nothing left in the tank each time I leave that gym. #goals #offseason #competitor #teamtitanfit #npc #wpd #gains at Old Gym
We can dress up pretty well when we have to. Can’t believe we’re in a retirement course for this Sailor. Really looking forward to the next chapter when he trades the uniform for the suit. #navywife #navylife #retirementplanning #nextchapter #navy #lovemyhusband at Coronado Navy Base
Can I get an Amen?! 😂 #truth #preworkout #thatsucks #youknowithappens #alwaysonlegday
I recently had a fellow competitor approach me at the gym and say, “As quickly as it comes off, it comes back on, Huh?”
When I replied, “heck yeah. But I’m loving every bit of it,” she looked at me like I was crazy. Yeah..the old me would have been offended by her comment and I probably would have reverted back to unhealthy habits I had years ago in an attempt to stay lean. But not now.
Now, I understand the importance of the “fluff” and embrace it. I know that I am better, mentally and physically, than I’ve ever been at this point. I’m 6 weeks post-show and still only up 10lbs when in past years I was 20lbs up. I’m lifting weight that I haven’t been able to lift in years and hitting new PRs with every workout. Most of all, I FEEL healthy and I am truly happy with where I’m at.
People, even some competitors , do not truly understand this sport. They don’t understand that it is unhealthy to maintain the leanness we have when we’re competing. They don’t realize the true importance of an offseason or Improvement Phase and the effects of a great offseason on the next season. They don’t understand that we need to eat to grow and yes, but on a little weight, but we are OK with that. And, lastly, there are some of us that as much as we love the look we have during comp season, some of us love the offseason look even more. That’s when you know you’ve truly grown, not only physically, but mentally, in this sport. #flexfriday #loveyourbody #offseason #gains #fitforties #goals #nomoregivingafuck #ownit #workforit #embracethefluff #competitor #npc #wpd #womensphysique #timetogrow #teamtitanfit at 24 Hour Fitness - Bonita, CA
Damn straight!! Own it, Ladies!! #fitforties #44isthenew24 #stayfit #nomoregivingafuck #lifeisamazing #ownit
Well, if this is 44, I’ll take it!! The only thing that bothers me about turning 44 today is that I realized that, as of next year, I’ll be in the highest age category for Nationals. I never thought when I was 24 (pictured ▶️) that I would still be competing. I do remember looking at the Masters women in complete admiration because age never defined them and now, I am one of them. I am grateful that I am still healthy enough to train as hard, actually HARDER, and still transform my physique. Yes, each year gets harder thanks to injuries and a much slower metabolism, but it just means that I have to push that much harder. Every year that passes I tell myself that this will be my last year competing, but then I realize that you’ll have to put me in a wheelchair before I give this up. All I can say to all the young whipper-snappers, don’t worry about getting older. IT JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER!! 😀 #birthdaygirl #44feelsgood #ageisjustanumber #strongerthanyesterday #wpd #bodybuilding #mastersphysique #npc #musclecontest #teamtitanfit #gainsville #ilovethislife #competitorforlife
First offseason check in complete (5.5 weeks post-show). Now is the hardest part for me. Prep is easy compared to trying to maintain a “striking distance” weight in the offseason. I have always struggled to keep my weight down because, put simply, I LOVE food, especially sweets. But then that leads to a 20 to 30 to 35lb weight gain in the offseason. Some call it “bulking”, but, let’s be real, it’s really called “getting fat”. Thankfully, I’m in a different place this time. 5.5 weeks since my last show and only up 10lbs and I’ve been on 2 trips and indulged when I wanted over the last month. I had a disappointing season this year and I know I wasn’t at my best. So, there’s a fire in me like I’ve never had before. I’m determined to be leaner next year and I can only do that if I stay within 10-15lbs from show weight and since I know I probably needed to lose 5-8 more lbs in that last show, it’s really only a 10lb weight gain.
I originally planned to compete in Oct/November, but my schedule over the next couple of months does not support and, in all honesty, this girl needs a little break and time to finally enjoy date nights with the hubby and night outs with friends. Plus, I have to rebuild this physique and condition the hell out of it to get where I need to be.
So, here we go!! Fingers crossed for an injury-free season and restraint from overindulgence. Keeping the eye in the prize and ready to bring a better package to the stage next Spring.

How do you know it’s a successful workout? When your light gray tank becomes a dark gray tank. 😜 #legday #slayed #offseasongains #goals #crushedit #competitor #workforit #determination #gains #teamtitanfit at Old Gym
The perfect way to segway into the start of another prep...a quick trip that included nothing but beach time, good eating, amazing margaritas, and pure quality time. Rosarita Beach exceeded our expectations. Fully decompressed and relaxed and ready to kill this prep. It’s go time, Baby!! #relaxed #greatvacation #readytogo #emptynesters #lifeisgood #rosaritabeach #airbnb #10weeksout at Rosarito, Mexico
While I’m watching all of the adorable back-to-school pics on my feed, I can’t help but reflect on how much I miss those days and miss my babies. HOWEVER... let me tell you.... Empty Nesting is AWESOME!!!
Going off the grid for the next few days as we head to Mexico for a quick getaway, just because we can 😀 No phone, no internet, no news, no gym time, just solid quality time enjoying quality time as a couple..LIFE IS GOOD!! #emptynesters #quickgetaway #travel #lifeisgood #marriedlifeisthebestlife #offthegrid #detox #adventure
4 weeks post-comp and loving it!! Usually, I’ve fluffed up 15-20lbs by now and today, holding steady at 9lbs and that’s AFTER an 8 day road trip. What’s different this time? My relationship with food, my intensity with my workouts, and my insane focus to just get better. Minus my obsession with rice cakes and Peanut Butter, I’ve really learned to fight my impulses to indulge. I’m not over indulging like I used to because I realize that that sets me back a few days per each indulgence. When I train, I leave EVERYTHING at the gym each and every day. My cardio level is SICK right now and I’m not wasting that. My drive and focus is on ONE thing, getting back on stage leaner and more conditioned than I’ve ever been. With that being said, I have one more week to splurge when needed and then it’s GAME TIME!! #12weeksout #competitor #postcompetition #musclecontest #teamtitanfit #wpd #readysetgo #focused #motivatedaf #letsdothis #determination at 24 Hour Fitness - Bonita, CA
When you have a husband that sits through, yet another, bodybuilding show when he’d rather watch another episode of Suits, he’s a KEEPER!! #lovemyman #datenight #emptynesters #25yearsstrong #hedratherbesomewhereelse #hesakeeper
8 days, 5 states. Had a great time with my daughter, grabbed a quick visit with the in-laws, and spent a couple days with our closest friends. I got to indulge a little, enjoyed quality time with loved ones, and didn’t even miss a single workout. I even detoured to Naval Station Great Lakes to get my shoulder and cardio session before heading to the airport. Don’t ever let travel be an excuse to get you off track from your goals. Now, ready to get home to my love and start focusing hard on the next goals. There’s no stopping me, baby!! #noexcuses #cominghome #roadtripadventures #familytime #friends #travelfitness #teamtitanfit #goals #musclecontest #fitmom at Chicago O'Hare International Airport

I think I may have added Nashville to top 3 favorite cities in the US. Happy that I got to explore the sights and sounds of this pretty cool town with my girl. Hope to come back with my favorite traveling partner, @jasonrdeutsch in the future. #countrymusic #nashville #travelingfamily #explore #roadtripadventures #greatcity at Nashville, Tennessee
