Road to the 2011 Figure Olympia: Diary of A Pro Figure Competitor
Ok so I am stepping on stage in 24 days and am a little scared!!!! This
summer has been so up and down with travel, work, and balancing
everything else at home, that it is just now setting in -- I am an
Olympian! And I am so excited :-)
Amanda's Adventure To Her First Pro Show: 4 Days!!!
Only 4 more days until I make my pro debut at the Europa in Dallas Tx, so excited and ready for it to be here! The last couple weeks have been Crazy for me and a bit challenging. A couple weeks ago I sprained my left elbow and the doctor told me I wouldn't be able to lift, or straighten my elbow for at least a week, if I wanted it to heal properly. But of course, knowing me and my stubbornness, Im in the gym the next day doing walking lunges with a 30 pound chain around my neck!! But Hey! I didn't lift or straighten it! It stayed in a sling right where he told me to keep it.
Road to the 2011 Figure Olympia
The countdown to the Olympia is on! Just 5 weeks and two days until I fly into Vegas for the 'big dance' and I couldn't be more excited :-) After having spent a wonderful week in Montreal with friends, I am back home and training like a mad woman! Two a day cardios, 5 days of weights a week, posing, dieting and a full time job are all eating up all my spare time.

Sleep is the most important aspect to your everyday life. If you are not getting enough, even the smallest of tasks become over whelming and your sanity slowly but surely becomes some what compromised.
