I've decided

not to compete in September.

I've been thinking and my butt will just not be ready by September. I need time to eat and build muscle back there. I've been dieting since January. We all know, I can't put on size if I'm dieting. I hate not to compete but it's not worth spending all the time and money to get my butt kicked by young 20 year olds:) I'm still doing cardio and training Hard and HEAVY, extra HEAVY in my butt/legs. It's actually like I'm on vacation because I've been dieting every summer for the last 4 years. I started last summer 1 week after Rozalee was born. I really don't know what it's like to enjoy and eat during the summer. Sorry, if I let anyone down but I just need more BUTT MUSCLE.
I know we are having a crappy summer in Indiana, hope you are having a nicer one wherever you live. Actually 1 year ago today, we were bringing Rozalee home for the first time.
Izabella had her T-ball awards last week:) We also surprised my Grandma w/ a visit from her daughter, who she hasn't seen in awhile. She lives in Maryland. That WAS SO neat to see the look on my grandma's face when Mary Rose walked up to her apartment door. I thought I would share a few pics.
I have some great pics from the show last weekend. We all had a blast. It was actually the first show where I got to see what really goes on backstage. It's alot of hard work but well worth it. Lishia and I got to celebrate at the After Party for a job well done.
Well till next week-e-mail me if you need anything or want to come train w/ me. I did get to torture a Phat Camper this week, she wanted to train legs and BOY did she train legs:) She did great but didn't like my porch by the time she was done.

So much has happened in the past year, wow!

Good decision on the competing. It's tough to make those decisions sometimes. Enjoy your summer, build some glutes :) and I know you'll bring it 100% when you step on stage!

I totally understand what you mean. I was going to do a show on Sept 26th but I will be on vacation aug 5~15 and don't want to kill myself when I get's not worth it. There will always be other shows.

Any news on the Phat Camp 2010 schedule? I'm looking for some west coast (or at least west of Texas) locations. I know the PHX is usually in Jan...
