Been crazy busy since coming back from the World Championships….
I didn’t place in either of my categories as the girls I must say were very exceptional and amongst 40 girls in the Bikini Medium alone I was probably “run of the mill”, even with all of my heavy training and diet. Seriously everyone brought their A-game and it was awesome to learn and watch. Now I know what I need to do to be competitive next June at Fitness Universe.
I knew that I wasn’t on top of my game coming into the show as I was juggling a couple of other priorities at the same time so I set my goals out to be 1) make new USA friends 2) network with supps/mags/etc and 3) understand the standard in the North American MuscleMania/Fitness Universe federation.
Mission accomplished! 🙂
Location: Viva Las Vegas! The Golden Nugget

Flexing it up with Morris Mendez, great to meet him at the show, very personable and has that movie star quality to him.
