Competing in SC STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS – Right Call!

Posted in Uncategorized on May 31, 2012 by chisel247

Decisions….Decisions….

So, at the beginning of the year I had one competition in mind – NPC 2012 Jr USAs.

A couple months out from the Jr USAs my Coaches suggested that I consider competing in the 2012 SC STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS as well.

I decided that was a pretty good idea, especially since there was only two weeks between each event. I’d already be lean and ready to go, so why not?! ;o)

Pleasant Surprise!!!

So…Jr USAs came, celebrated at the evening event with some treats backstage (a layered treat that one of my teammate’s mom made – chocolate chip cookie, oreo, brownie – WOW!!) and immediately after the competition, continued the celebration over a steak dinner and nice sweet treat from Kaminsky’s. ;o)

The next day, Sunday May 20th, hung out in downtown Charleston with Hollywood and her man and enjoyed another “FREE” meal at Grill 225’s AMAZING rooftop; Kobe Beef Burger, Waffle Fries and a Bloody Mary…MMM…MMM GOOD!!!

And on the way outta town we did a Kickin’ Chicken “Drive By” for a Hollywood introduction to their Pepper Jack Cheese stuffed pretzel…another “WOW!”

Back in Greenville that evening I allowed myself one last sweet treat after leftovers from steak dinner….a lil Ben & Jerry’s  / Starbucks ice cream ;o)

ON TASK!!

Come Monday morning, all Carbed up and Ripped, Roarin’ & Ready-to-go….Cleaned my act up and got back ON TASK!!

One week to HIT IT HARD in the gym and then Prep accordingly the week leading into the SC STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS.

My Coach adjusted my Fuel Plan that first week, upping the calories by adding more carbs in the mix and my weight went back up from Jr USA weigh-ins of 115lbs to 122lbs (Note: after the weekend ChuckTown Celebration I weighed in at 123…so actually lost one pound that 1st week after).

Right Call!!!

The “Mini-Celebration Time” and Fuel Plan / Training the 1st week following Jr USAs proved to be a favorable mix and my body responded VERY positively!!

I became tighter and leaner than when on stage at Jr USAs!!!

The Monday of Prep Week leading into SC STATE I weighed in at 120lbs and as of today, the Thursday before I’m down to 115.25!! ;o)

The best part though is that I’m tighter, yet fuller!!

I am totally PSYCHED, STOKED, PUMPED etc… to hit the stage again come Saturday!!! Whoo Hoo!!

Let’s DO THIS!!! DREAM TEAM!!!

Once again, it will be a sheer priviledge to be competing in the same event with fellow Dream Team Teammates!!

Ashleigh “Hollywood” Allison – Bikini, Laura Foster – Figure, and Shauna Robinson – Figure. ;o)

Can’t wait for another FUNFILLED weekend girls!!!!

Look out COLA here we come!!

Art, Science, Sheer Wizardry!!

I can’t end this post without a HUGE shout out to my Coaches…

First, to the Coach in charge of my “Fuel Plan”….my new nickname for him – THE WIZARD!!….Crazy how tweaks here and there can cause the body to respond…it is definitely a Science resulting in Physique Sculpture!!

Second, to the Coach who trains with me and also helps to keep me “fokused”!

Love ya both TONZ!!! ;o)

NPC 2012 Jr USA Hardware

The COOL Momento

In my excitement to share the Super FUN time at the NPC 2012 Jr USA competition, it slipped my mine to tell how I placed.

I took 5th place, was hoping for 3rd or 4th, but still need to work on bringin out the definition in my lower half.

While bringing home “Hardware” is always nice, it’s definitely NOT the main source of satisfaction….at least not for me.

Sword Number Two in my Trophy Collection

I’m in it for “The Process”. Don’t get me wrong….I’ve definitely got a competitive streak, but in this sport you never know what types of physique you’ll be standing with on stage. So the only thing in my control is how I go through “The Process”.

I determine if I follow the Fuel Plan, train hard every session in the gym, execute the cardio and get enough rest. All of which allows my physique to become stronger, tighter and more defined.

MENTAL strengthening is another huge benefit to putting all aspects of “The Process” into action.

As long as I continue to improve and bring a better physique to the stage each competition I can claim personal victory!

The best news of all is that this is the one sport that you can continue to make vast improvements as you age!!

Mature Muscle Baby!! So…goin against the norm….TIME is on MY SIDE!! ;o)

Behind the Scenes…

This Season, besides competing at the Jr USAs, State and possibly Nationals, I have a SUPER opportunity to work behind the scenes of several other Bodybuilding Events as an Expeditor!!

What an HONOR to help the competing athletes shine on stage!! Not to mention a great way to meet more folks in this AWESOME Sport!!

Many THANKS!! To my Training Partnah, Friend and IFBB PRO Marie Ann Newman (AKA “MO”) for giving me this SUPER FUN opportunity!!!

Thus far I’ve expedited in both Carolinas –  the Stewart Fitness Charlotte Cup and Glenn Herring Enterprises Palmetto Cup!

 

The Bodybuilding Team that I am affiliated with, Jim & Mo’s DREAM TEAM, had several of our teammates competing in both of these events….for some it was their FIRST competition!!  So COOL to watch them transform their physiques and then showcase their accomplishments on stage!!

Check’em out on Face Book or any of the show websites for their results!! Trisha Constantine (1st Competition, Palmetto Cup), Maritza Muehleisen (1st 2 Competitions, Charlotte Cup & Palmetto Cup), Laura Foster (1st Competition, Palmetto Cup), Marissa Alkire – Palmetto Cup, Shauna Robinson -Palmetto Cup.

WOW! Contest Prep went FAST!!!

I can’t believe that competition time is almost here….2 Days away, in fact!! SO EXCITED to hit that Charleston, SC stage again!!

Check out 2 weeks vs week 14….CRAZY – Right???!!! (Note: primary goal of these pics was to capture physique changes…hat is quite the fashion statement with my evenin wear suit – huh??!! ;o) )

Look Out ChuckTown – Here Comes the Dream Team!!

This year I will have the sheer pleasure of sharing the stage with 3 other Dream Team teammates!

All of us have worked incredibly hard in preparation of this event and I can’t wait to ENJOY the MOMENT with them!!

Join me in cheerin’ on Figure Competitor – Jenny Hansen, and Bikini Competitors – Ashleigh “Hollywood” Allison and Marissa Alkire!! Whoop!! Whoop!!

(Note: NPC Junior USA Flyer is same info for 2012 as it was for 2011….was unable to find 2012 version.)

THANKS NERDS!!! ;o)

A HUGE THANK YOU!!!!! to my Trainers / Friends Jim & Mo for ALL of the encouragement, the Fuel Plan, the posing practice / tweaks and trainin’ with me this season!!!

I couldn’t have accomplished this transformation without ALL of your HELP and SUPPORT.

Y’all ROCK!!!
