  1. I'm on the hunt for a green/blue suit with underwire, these are my fav. designs: http://www.vandellacostumes.com/product_info.php?cPath=23_24&products_id=1046 http://www.vandellacostumes.com/product_info.php?cPath=23_24&products_id=1055 http://www.vandellacostumes.com/product_info.php?cPath=23_24&products_id=1094 http://www.vandellacostumes.com/product_info.php?cPath=23_24&products_id=1097 http://www.vandellacostumes.com/product_info.php?cPath=23_24&products_id=1108 **http://www.vandellacostumes.com/product_info.php?cPath=23_24&products_id=1171 (this is the one I'm leaning towards) I had another posing session yesterday, went fairly well and think I have my ears on the music I'm going to use. Rest day today and this week starts more cardio and reducing my sugar intake to next to nothing =( no more bananas, carrots, raisins..... at least I can still have strawberries and oatmeal! yummy!!
  2. Tofu scramble is my favorite way, here's my favorite recipe: http://www.theppk.com/recipes/dbrecipes/index.php?RecipeID=110 I usually use spinach instead of mushrooms. I've also turned this into a quiche my blending it and putting it into a pie crust and baking it.
  3. I started posing classes last night. Holy freaking crap it's tough! goals: -increase hip and low back flexibility to help with my side and front pose. I have trouble sticking my rear out the right way. I plan on focusing on stretching more, taking yoga classes and getting a few massages. -practice turns and walking in heels. -pick out my music good news is I did fairly well with the back pose. My coach suggested I get a different suit, I'm looking into a royal blue one with underwire (I think this will make me feel more comfortable on stage) I may need to start cutting some of the sugars I am eating ( fruits and carrots mostly) and up my cardio sessions. I'll be getting pictures and video soon from my sessions and will post them when I get them.
  4. Starting posing classes tonight and have a group session this weekend. This is my posing coach: http://www.stacywig.com/
  5. You forgot one, ME! Vegetarian Resource Group VegAction
  6. My husband and I will be there
  7. Welcome!!! I'm also in Baltimore!
  8. I friend showed me these sites the other day and I thought I'd share them with you all. The first one is of a raw vegan who just competed in her first bikini show... http://www.loveveggiesandyoga.com/ the second one she showed to me because of some protein "grenades" that the site creator made for her bodybuilding husband that my friend thought I might be interested in trying to make: http://kristensraw.blogspot.com/2010/02/raw-vegan-protein-grenades-help-keep-my.html
  9. The lighting sucks and so does my posing (I'll be taking a few classes with a local pro soon), but wanted to show everyone the suit I bought. I'm still searching for shoes. http://i49.tinypic.com/sxfxba.jpg http://i49.tinypic.com/xmvo1l.jpg http://i47.tinypic.com/2gtyp8y.jpg
  10. for me drinking LOTS and LOTS of water and taking a 30 min soak in some epsom salts helps

  15. Thanks!! I noticed I was eating mostly processed crap so I wanted to cut that out, plus all the gluten was making me bloated looking.
  16. haha!, that's what he loves about me... I'll have you know those are Victoria's secret granny panies!
  17. looking good Johan! and I want that steamer!! here's one I took at the gym today: http://i41.tinypic.com/28tc6eb.jpg trying to show some of the vascularity in my arm, but it didn't come out too well
  18. Viva, I sure hope so =) these are some recent photos: http://i39.tinypic.com/2hehhza.jpg http://i44.tinypic.com/24xdq45.jpg http://i43.tinypic.com/24xf4no.jpg I wish my biceps would develop better, but It has only been 3 weeks of seriously working my upper body- so in due time I guess.
  19. apparently she's from Baltimore..I need to find her!! lol
  20. I actually have had the same problem for years (along feeling of needing to take a deep breath and not being able to and heart palpitations), I had a guy ask me why I was yawning when I was doing cardio once. When I was worried about it I searched all over the internet and came across something called chronic Hyperventilation syndrome, I don't know much about it and won't pretend that I do (there are some scholarly articles out there to read if you google them but I've not taken the time to read them). But knowing something like this exists made me feel less crazy and worried for my health.
  21. Welcome to the forum, I saw you're P90x photos, great progress!! you look fantastic! When I worked with a trainer he wasn't so sure it was possible without meat, but when I was doing more work than his male clients and showing more progress, he changed his mind.
  22. For hamstrings you could try these : http://www.youtube.com/user/ChrisZFit#p/u/22/114JFJJzoEc I know all too well how much ankle injuries suck!! stick with it, you'll be back at it soon
  23. I've been using mitchum (seems to be working), honestly I can't use the natural ones (except for the crystal which didn't seem to work for me when it got really warm). I have sensitive armpits and when I use the natural ones it tears my skin off (literally), turns all red and burns like crazy!! I have a friend who this also happens to. I wonder what is in (or not in them) that causes this...
