Recap

Recap

Hey! So I guess its that time… show recap! I’ve become pretty familiar with the whole peak week and have a pretty good comfortable routine. However Wednesday (show week) I read on the NPC Utah Facebook page that if you had won an Overall the prior year you were not eligible to compete in Utah until 2015. Uhhh….. WHAT?!? The show was in THREE days.

I have been prepping for months for a show that I am no longer eligible for? And when the crap did this rule happen? I was FURIOUS. So… I started searching for this “rule” and could not find anything on any website anywhere that said anything about a rule of any sort. I contacted my Chairman and he said that I could not compete in the Open class until 2015 because I won Overall in August of 2013, but I could compete in the Natural class and if I had any questions I could contact the NPC head office. Well… I did have questions. I wanted to understand why I wasn’t eligible. I’ve been competing for years and have never heard anything like this before. My chairman mentioned something about “trophy stacking”. They allow you to “crossover” into up to 3 classes if your a first time competitor. Novice, Natural, and open… and if your a first time competitor AND 35 you can do even MORE crossovers. SO… if you ask me that is trophy stacking. I compete locally maybe 2 shows a year. I compete in ONE class only. OPEN. If I happen to win an overall, YAY for me. BUT the chances of that are not likely. Most often there are girls who get up to 5 trophies in ONE show. It takes me an entire year or longer to get that amount of trophies. Trophy stacking??? Hmmm…

Vent over. Long story short (ened), I contacted to NPC head office. They told me this rule doesn’t exist. Jim Manion called my chairman, I competed in the Open class. And I took 2nd in the biggest show in Utah as of yet. My class had 20 girls. Here are a few pictures from the competition that my friend got for me :) Next competition will be Nationals. I realize that I have to put on a little more size for that show. I need to do some work, but I am SO ready for it. Oh and I have an amazing suit, which is also made by Bonnie Barber at Platinum Designs. She has done all of my recent suits. She is absolutely amazing in every way to work with. If you’re looking for someone to work with, I highly recommend her. You can find her on Facebook.

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
