My name is Kerryne, I started competing in 2009 in the Figure division. It lit a fire in me I never knew I had. I have a passion for fitness, and something about being on stage, stepping out of my comfort zone, that adrenaline rush really just did something to me. I did very well, placing in the top 5, and eventually getting that 1st place and Overall sword.

Bikini First Place

I went on the the National stage (USA’s) in July of 2011 where I realized that in order to really become competitive with Figure I would have to put on a lot more size and in all honesty I was not willing to do that. So it was then that I had to make a choice. Do I continue on with Figure, gain more size (A LOT more size), be done competing all together…. or do I make the switch to Bikini?

"I missed not having to be ME for just one day."

I took some time off from competing, we moved from California to Utah and I finally made my decision. I MISSED the stage. I missed not having to be ME for just one day. Not having to be “mom” or “wife” for that few minutes. To feel like I was accomplishing something FOR ME. To get to walk out on that stage, all insecurities aside, confident, which was something that I haven’t always been. I absolutely love pushing myself. I love that feeling of knowing that I DID THIS. No one did this for me. I created this body. I put the work in, even though I work a full time job. I raise 2 kids, sometimes by myself since my husband does A TON of traveling. I DID THIS.

There is something so powerful in knowing that you can accomplish the things that you make time for, and that even with all of the things you have going on… you can still make time for the things you love. It isn’t selfish to take care of yourself. It isn’t selfish to love yourself. In fact, I feel like I am a better mother, a better wife BECAUSE I am doing something that gives me passion. I love this sport! Obviously I have goals to acheive my Pro card, just like everyone else that steps on that stage. I hope to accomplish that one day. Until then, I hope you follow me on this Journey of mine and if you have any questions feel free to ask away!

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

Quick Update

Hey!!!

Just popping in with a quick update and some official pictures from the photographers from the NPC Utah Complete Nutrition Championships on March 22! Pictures were taken by Chris Nicoll and Lyman Winn of Carbon Imagery. They did an awesome job! I’m looking forward to doing a real photo shoot with them in May.

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.

Peak Week

March 22 is quickly coming… And I am SO excited! This is Utah’s biggest show yet. The competition will be fierce. I’m bringing the best package I can. Hopefully it’s enough to wow these judges, and qualify for another year of Nationals! Here are a few progress pics that I have taken over the last couple of weeks.

3 Weeks Out

I never go into a show feeling like I’ve got it in the bag! I think there’s always that feeling of “I should have”, “I could have”, or “I wish I would have”…. But you know what? I’m giving it my all, I always put my whole heart into every show. I love competing SO much that every part of me goes into it. My entire soul is on that stage, on display for the everyone to see. Talk about being vulnerable. I don’t think it gets more vulnerable than that! Here are a couple of progress photos the first one I was 4 weeks out and the second 3 weeks out…

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
