Today on Thanksgiving, I have to share this link to this beautiful song because it sums up how I feel about my life as there have been times when I wasn't so happy to be alive. I'm sure everyone has had those times, but now I think about what I've been able to experience in the last 4 months with the competition and losing 2 family members this year. My inspiration for doing my first competition was my dear friend Cassandra who went to heaven on October 12th 2008. She was so young and full of life and I feel foolish for those times I didn't want to be here as I know she would give anything to be here again with her beautiful children...today I am very thankful for mine and my family and friends' health. :)

Wow what a weekend! Attended the 2009 NPC nationals competition in Hollywood, FL this past weekend and placed 1st in my division in the fitness bikini category...what a great experience! It was non-stop go-go-go. The weather was gorgeous and the water was so warm. Palm tress everywhere and the pristine beaches made me homesick for San Diego...I squeezed in 3 photo shoots and workouts as well all in between tanning, make-up & hair for pre-judging and finals. It was a crazy but fun weekend and I got to meet some beautiful people and I don't mean just on the outside. Aziel gets the award for manager/trainer of the year! In spite of being sick he kept my A.D.D. bootie on schedule and on locations early! Thank you baby! All of our hard work has paid off as I earned my pro-card Saturday night and I now am officially an IFBB pro! pinch me!
