So, I haven’t blogged in over 3 months. Why you ask?
I’ve been training hard towards my dream of becoming a pro-figure athlete…
It all started when I decided to get in the best shape of my life November 2010.
And the only way I could think of to achieve this goal was to challenge myself and do a figure competition. It was tough sticking to the competition diet through the holidays and my birthday but I did it. My first show was April 9, 2011 and with my husband out in the audience whistling his head off, I walked away with 3 trophies!

1. Gluteus Maximus (aka glutes)- these are the largest of the 3 muscles in your buttocks and acts as a cushion while sitting down. Unfortunately, for many of us, our jobs have us sitting more than in motion. We end up losing a lot of the “roundness” because our glutes are being flattened out.

Want to get in a challenging workout but short on time?
Try this t-shirt drenching 15 minute circuit I came up with today…
How to do the workout:
Set your timer for 2:1 = 2 minutes of cardio followed by 1 minute of abs
There are 5 circuits each 3 minutes (2:1) = 15 minutes. Do all 5 circuits back to back without a break.
