It’s pretty normal for fitness athletes to feel rather down after the long hard preparation to get stage ready. I am no exception. All year I have had the goal to compete. I knew I had a show in April and straight afterwards I was prepping for November. And while its so great not to be training so hard, and better still Im not dieting it takes some readjustment to ease back into off season normality. I am eating far less protein as I dont need as much. My fave treat right now is brown toast with peanut butter and honey. Good for energy. I admit to feeling down some days. Its cold and dark here in London and the days are getting shorter in terms of daylight. With no immediate goals on the horizon, a good thing actually….Its been a case of putting one foot in front of the other and getting on with it. My two young sons keep me on track and highly functioning. They deserve a happy Mommy and now that the rigors of competetion are over at least for now Im enjoying getting ready for Xmas . Jamie my 8 year old was singing me some of the Christmas carols he’s rehearsing for the school concert. Rob and I are really looking forward to it. Life is so much about finding balance. Its all too easy to get caught up in the destination and neglect the journey. So fitties, I hope this year had been good to you and that 2014 brings you peace. xoxo

Hey Fabulous Fitties !
Gaining and maintaining a competition ready fitness model body along with the right diet requires some weights, bodyweights, cardio, abs, back, leg.. essentially full body training ! No muscle is left untouched really and here is a peek into the exercises I do as I am preparing for the WBFF show .
For my abs, the ‘Roman Chair’ and ‘Rowing Machine’ are some of my go-to moves . While my legs are made for ‘Lunges’ and ‘Leg Presses’ all day everyday, you can never go wrong with those !

To get into great condition I diet from around 8 weeks before my show date. I restrict my carbs and eat very clean. I eat fruit in moderation, have the occasional cup of tea with milk, but all junk food is out until the show is over.
Just something I’ve noticed…I shop a bit more often. Not sure if its the exciting changes taking place in my mind and body that spur me on to dash round Primark or the fact that when shopping for all things girly, there’s no time to think about food ! Probably a bit of both. This is also a fun time because I’m shopping for things that will photograph well in the shoots I have coming up in the next few weeks.Photos are very important. The stage moments are over in a flash, but photos are my lasting record of the months of hard training and dieting.
It Works if You Work it so Work it ….You’re Worth it !!! xxxxx
