January 2011, I was 180lbs. It was time to not be a chubby bunny anymore. I started bro dieting and doing lots of cardio and machines at the gym. February 2011, I met Eric (ErickStevens) and a few months later he started training me and taught me about IIFYM, thank god. I began squatting, benching, and deadlifting, using barely the bar for all of these. I reached a low weight of 127lbs in August of 2011 and was planning to do a show and compete in bikini. I made a last minute decision, for many reasons, not to do that show. Instead I wanted to get stronger and actually build some muscle. I set my goal to do figure in 2013. I Got my PT certification and started teaching girls that it is okay to lift! I've spent the last year and 4 months lifting as heavy as I can and trying to put on as much muscle as my body will allow. I competed in 2 PL meets and had so much fun doing them, Eric and I opened our own gym called Sarasota Barbell and we got married! It's been an amazing year and I can't wait to see what next year brings.
I am so fortunate to have Eric and so excited that Alberto Nunez will be leading me to the top! Currently, Eric is doing my training program because I find that I get a little ADD when I do my own. I am maintaining my weight between 139-142lbs and eating 40-60g fat, 100-130g carbs, and 160-200g protein. I feel better and stronger than ever!
I start prep January 3rd, first show I am looking at doing is May 25. Ready to do the damn thang!
