3 National Bikini Competitions

3 National Bikini Competitions

Seriously… it has been MONTHS since I’ve been on here. You know, life just takes over and what once was a fun little hobby becomes something you have to find time for and time is not something I have a lot of these days. BUT… SO much has happened since APRIL. I still can’t believe that was my last post. APRIL? How!?! I don’t even know where to start. I’ll try to keep it short. Three (yes 3) National competitions. First one was Junior Nationals in Chicago June 13-14

I ended up not placing, but had a fantastic time and gained some great National stage experience. I felt great though I knew what changes I needed to make for the next one… so I started working my butt off for USA’s July 25-26 in Las Vegas

I ended up placing 15th, only the top 15 actually place in National competitions… so I BARELY placed! BUT… I placed ;) Again, I had some final tweaking to do and one more show on my brain. I was turning 35 on August 26th, 4 days before North Americans in Pittsburgh where I qualified to compete in the Open and Masters for TWO chances at a Pro card. Why not! Let’s go… So finally my 3rd competition of the summer was August 30th, North American Championships in Pittsburgh

First class I came out in was the Open class. I was shocked when I was in the first call outs. And even more shocked when I was placed right near the middle. I knew I was 1st or 2nd place. Next class was Masters… where again I was surprised to get called out in the first call outs and placed in the middle once again. I ended up taking 2nd place in BOTH classes just missing my PRO card GAH! I was SO close. TOO close. :) but I had the best time. Met the most amazing people, was invited to do a fun interview with bodymorphpros.com; which you can view on youtube (I’ll try to post it later) and cannot wait for the next National show NPC National Bodybuilding Championships in Miami on November 21-22. Pro card I am coming for you!!!!

I have a few @fitmarkbags but one of my favorites is the Envoy Backpack 🎒! I ordered this for one of my more recent competitions because I thought it would be a great way to carry on my items and I loved the little "lunch box" idea. Well guess what? I STILL love my lunch box and I use it every day for work! 😁 It's been perfect for taking my lunch, a ready to drink protein shake, snack and my Rockstar ⭐️ even fits! Throw an ice pack in there and you're good to go! Right now through #Olympia weekend @fitmarkbags is having a special for 20% off 👍 but you can use my code KH15 and get 15% off anytime you want! 😘 #whatsinyourbag #nicebag #fitmarkbags #mealprep #mealpreplife #preparetosucceed #prep #ifbb #ifbbproleague #pro #ifbbpro #bodybuilding #gotgoals #success #neverquit #lovetolift #TeamHeugly #competitor #dreambig

Here I sit at just shy of two weeks out for my next show, the IFBB Arkansas Pro. I wanted to see how I looked at two weeks out from my last show (July 1st) the IFBB Patriots Pro vs. now. Feedback was to, of course... tone down my obliques 😔 and to continue building my upper glutes, but that the roundness was coming along and that my glutes were pretty on point for Vegas 🙌🏻 I have worked very hard trying to balance out where I can and stay mentally strong. I'm striving for a balanced physique, not perfection. The fact that I truly love the sport and I've maintained consistency with my training and my diet for several years without a lot of fluctuation has helped me to continually progress. I'm not perfect, far from it. But I am happy, I don't feel deprived, or like I am doing something that is unnatural FOR ME. Thanks to my coach @shaneheugly I have been able to make this fit into my life not made my life fit into THIS. #balance I'm blessed with an amazing man @tohenich . ❤️ I can't say that enough. He is someone that comes around once in a lifetime! Is it hard? 😩 Yes of course it is. So are a lot of things. But anything worth it does not come easy does it? #idoitforme

#FlashBackFriday to the 2014 & 2015 IFBB North American Championships in conjunction with the IFBB Pittsburgh Pro Masters Championship 👏🏻 In 2014 I competed as an amateur trying to earn my Pro status. I had just turned 35 the weekend before and my number just happened to be 826 🙌🏻 (my birthdate 😊) I was PUMPED!! #signs AND... I received first callouts in both the open class D and my masters class! 😃 This was following 2 National shows of 16th placings 😬 🤞Well, I ended up taking 2nd place in BOTH classes that night. No Pro card but I felt amazing and so proud for how far I had come! 2015, I finally got to step on that same stage as an IFBB Pro, where I placed 3rd! 🎊 #dreamscometrue earning my Pro status at Junior Nationals in Chicago in 2015 was a great accomplishment but it did not come easy for me! Good luck competitors, friends, and teammates next week! ⭐️ Enjoy the process, enjoy the experience. 💕 Make memories! ❤️ No matter what you have already won!

Stage Sass.... 😩🙄... as an "older" woman it is not always easy for me to do... 😂. Sometimes I get uncomfortable watching people overly sassy on stage. 🙈 I am very much an introvert and that lady 👆 is my alter ego! Yesterday I was lucky enough to meet up with my own posing coach IFBB Pro @theugly so we could really polish and fine tune the changes I made to my routine this season.... well we did just that and added in a couple things that I just LOVE!!!! ❤️ Classy Sassy! Yes... that is what I consider my posing ☺️ I literally cannot wait to do this! #5weeksout #proleague #TeamHeugly #posingcoach #humpday #classysassy #glutes #ifbb #ifbbpro #proleague #ifbbproleague #ifbbbikini #stagesass #stagepresence #keepitclassy #momswholift #momswithmuscle #bodybuilding #muscular #utahfit #utahfitfam #utahfitness #liftlikeagirl #fitfam #fitlife
