Channeling My Inner Champion

What up?? What up?? :)

I hope you had an enjoyable weekend! I did!! The Princess and I spent Saturday in our jammies watching movies like The Rocketeer and Space Chimps. On Sunday, Tom went target shooting with his parents so it's was Girls' Day Out! The Princess and I went to breakfast and then took a drive to La Encantada. MAC was our destination and there was money to be spent! I'm a MAC whore and I'm not afraid to admit it! I had an appointment with an artist to figure out my "face" for my next show. The artist I worked with was INCREDIBLE! It's always fun learning about applying makeup, not only for show day but every day! I'll do a post later in the week about the look I'm going to do and the MAC products I will be using. But let me just say that any look that incorporates a product with the name "Fetish" is fine by me :)

Check-in on Saturday went well for one reason.....The Boss was out of town and couldn't respond to my email & pictures! I told myself that silence equals The Boss thinking "you look so incredible that no changes are necessary!" Hey, a girl can dream can't she?? :)

Here's what I looked like on Saturday - a little bloated from TOM but I can definitely see changes from the week before.

There are diet changes and my am cardio has been increased (this makes me hateful of those know who you are...that don't have to do any cardio...that's some bullsh! But guess who gets to see the inside of a gym more than once a week?!?!? That's right....ME!!!!!!!!!! I'm so excited and I'm sure Tom will have some awesome workouts for me to do!

I want to send a HHHUUUGGGEEE "Congratulations" to Kellie of Mother Fitness. She competed this past weekend in the INBA America's Natural Bodybuilding show in Tempe, AZ. Kellie won not only first place in Figure Open but Overall as well!!!

I would like to end this post with the video below. This speech is beyond powerful. The portion of the speech that resonated with me is:

Defeat, retreat those are not in my words
I do not understand those definitions
I do not understand when things go wrong
I do not understand mistakes but I do understand this
I understand victory and I understand never surrendering
No matter how bad things go
My Heart and my mind will carry my body when my limbs are too weak

Now picture me yelling, "I am a champion!" - that's the theme for this week - let's get it!!!
