Back to Reality

After putting life on somewhat of a "hold" while I prepared for the show, I can't say that I'm too surprised that life after the show has been nothing short of chaos. Work, family, homelife, etc has just been completely unorganized these last 10 days.

I haven't worked out or tracked what I eat since the competition, I also haven't planned for meals or really thought much about a daily schedule/routine. We're in the last few days of summer and I'm just trying to decompress before the school year begins. I've already put back on 4lbs, but my clothing is still very very big on me and I'm not seeing any changes in my appearance. I believe that the 4lbs is water. I'd like to put on a few more lbs for my maintenance weight.

My daughter starts school next week and both my husband and I are planning on getting on track on September 1st. Back to working out, meal planning, HIIT training and carb cycling (for Marty, not me) We're going to hit it hard!

My goal for the next 3 months is to move heavy weights! I'm going to really focus on putting on muscle mass. During the 3 months prior to my competition, I was able to put on 2 lbs of muscle even while leaning out, so I'm excited to see how much muscle I can do without trying to lose weight at the same time.

I'll continue to post my workouts and nutrition plans...Blythe will continue to monitor my nutrition online and we'll really focus on maintaining weight and adding muscle mass.


  1. I'm on the same workout track as you right now babe, taking it easy, enjoying these last few days of summer before I hit it hard at the gym again :-) We can build more mass together, just in spirit LOL!

  2. Amie! I would LOVE that! Please share your workouts and we can help push each other! Blythe moved to FL this week and I'm going to be completely LOST without a trainer!
