I'm back!!!

Not blogging since June.......well, that's a new record! I really need to get better at this!! Sorry, sorry, sorry!! 
Here we are in November, getting ready for the Holidays surrounded by yummy foods, holiday stress, family, and friends, and here I am setting new goals of competing this April! I took a lot of time off to just live life as a "normal" person, way too much time off, and I found that I am most happy when I am on a strict routine of workouts and diets. Its a lifestyle and I am learning its what really works for me and brings balance to my life!
Here's the plan, Fitness Universe Tour in April at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut, and Fitness Universe in Miami in June. I will only be competing in Bikini for April but may also do Figure again in June if I have put on enough muscle by then! The best part about these new goals, my best friend Desiree has decided to join me on this journey!! I am over the moon with excitement to share this journey with her! She just became a new Mommy to the most adorable little man Gavin! She is an amazing, friend and I am so blessed to have her by my side! We have been through the ups and downs of life together.... high school, our husbands military deployments, weddings, and now children together! Here's to one more wild ride together!! 

I started the morning off with a Banana Isagenix Shake! It's quick, easy, delicious and one of the best things you can put into your body! I am back to eating six meals a day, and eating every three hours, so convenience is a must! 
I am fueled up for now, and I am off to play with two very cute kids!! I have dinner plans with my friend Shawna tonight, and a really fun weekend planned consisting of coffee dates, quality time with the husband, and a Girls day including lunch  Melting Pot with my little princess, Grammy and Auntie for a Fairytale Fondue Party!!
