Puppies turned 8 weeks yesterday,   they are so cute and bucky and sweet.


Stuck in Tampa

Hi everyone,  well we were suppose to be in a plane on the way home right now,  but no go.  Plane was delayed, then there was no connecting flight for us, so airline has us put up in hotel in Tampa till tomorrow afternoon when we will try and fly home again.   When we do get home I will post a blog about my whole experience at my first pro show.   Till then.

Well my feet are now wet at the pro level!

It has been a wirlwind the last few days,  I think I was more nervous then I thought I was about stepping on the pro stage for thefirst time, didn’t sleep but a few hours since we had left California.   It was a learning experience, I was a bit disappointed at getting last call out thought I might be in the 3rd, but I also knew it was a long shoot for me and really tried to not have any expectations, but hey I am competitive and like do do well.  

I was very happy with the package I brought, just forgot some very important presentations things that I need to fix.  To say I was in awe and overwelmed trying to remember all the things you need to remember would be an understatement lol.   All in all it was a good learning experience and I plan on going and doing the Hartford(Europa) show at the end of july.  

Oh and it was nice to have good reviews   from both dave palumbo on rxmuscle and Shawn Ray at MD- the critques they both do during play by play. Other then ShawnRay saying my tan looked orange lol but he always says that about me(I don’t see it) both said good things. 

Well it is early sunday , have a few photo shoots today then off for some fun at an amusement park at Orlando tomorrow with the family. 

Thanks to all who txted me yesterday with not but positive words of support.

Two days and counting

We made it to Tampa yesterday, long travel day but went smooth, no hiccups and we didn’t loose any luggage.   Crazy how much we have but we do have the whole family with us. 
I am so happy with my conditioning this year and not having to make a certain weight I was able to get super lean but didn’t loose my back and delts this year.  Of course they could still be bigger lol but I feel and Shawn feels they are best they have looked to date.
This is a big show which is great for the sport of female bodybuilding, 25 female bb, we out number every other group.  Great line up of women and I am really trying to just enjoy and not get caught up in placings.  As my best friend Lisa said to me today “enjoy the experience, know that I have worked my ass off and I deserve to shine”. With friends like Lisa and husbands like my Shawn and my girls I am so blessed.

I will keep you all posted. Claire

Oops I can’t forget all my friends from the gym who are rooting for me and all that have shown me support on facebook, on forumson txt. Thanks all


4 weeks till Tampa Pro-Active Release Technique

Boy time is actually just flying by.   4 weeks till show time.   my husband(my trainer) and I are very happy with my prep this year, things are going very nicely.    I want to thank Monte Spicer of Kinetic Chain Sport, LLC,  His Active Release Technique Massages have helped keep me injury free and I also feel  they have helped improve my physique.  In the past I have never done any type of massage,  now I highly recommend them to any athlete, epecially if you are competitive.   Monte is the man. 

Have a great day everyone.

Puppies are here

Our little girl Riley did great today and had her 3 puppies.  1st born at 12:30(looks like she will be a silvery grey color), 2nd born at 2:15(right now looks brindle color) 3rd born at 2:45(looks like she will be tri color like her dad). We think they are al 3 girls.   They are so cute.


Contest Prep

Contest prep is always fun,challenging, tricky,exciting and comes with the big question will my body respond as well as it did last year or maybe it will respond better.

I find it an adventure every year, seeing the changes in my body week to week.  I am less then 6 weeks from my pro debut(Pro Bodybuilding Weekly-Tim Gardners show in Tampa Florida).   Prep is going very well my body is respondng nicely,  I am using my husbands help for this show and we are actually getting along great with prep, I am listening and not giving him to hard a time. Unfortually I couldn’t work with Hany Rambod this time just too many money n job challenges this year for us.   I miss Hany n Farinez.  But Shawn my husband aka trainer man lol is doing an awesome job with me.

I have prepped a few people in the past but really want to expand on that, (build up my business, contest prep, posing, basic nutrition, off season, etc).   I will be working on that.  You can find some information on my training page.
