I got selected!

I've been selected by Muscle & Fitness HERS to attend "BIKINI CAMP" in Las Vegas with the IFBB Pro's of the industry! This is my FAVORITE fitness magazine! OMG.

The creme de la creme will be there! like Amanda on May/June cover 2010 on the left. Judges, top nutritionists & trainers....this is the opportunity of a  lifetime! I'd learn so much...& could you imagine the networking?? Whoaa. I just have to scrounge up some money to fly! I've never been to Sin City....

I HAVE to go...just got to. I'll find a way.. i always do. <3

Work It

Hey Guys! I'm a little slow on the bloggin' thang. I've been trying to catch up with people's questions on Facebook. I get a lot of mail nowadays...and it's totally cool. I love to help people out with their weight loss goals. If i can inspire, motivate anyone out there to push themselves than I know I'm doing something that is amazing. It's always easy peasy to say , "ok yeah i'll eat better & workout etc etc...what's your diet plan? how much cardio?" but when it comes down to eat YOU HAVE to work for it. There's no substitution for hard i right? I created a page on Facebook for my close friends ...who want to get bikini ready with me ;) You can join too! I update w/ muscle building recipes, workout routines, pictures, rants, etc ..but mostly i try to find things to get people going & succeed!. I'm exhausted as i type this but you never know there is probably someone waiting for a new post =P  Goodnight! <3

Like this page!  Get Bikini Ready with Cristina

p.s. so i took a lil R&R after the competition! that's next!

I can't even begin how to describe it all...I did it in 5 months. I worked so hard and i sacrificed a lot of important things in my life. I was in the gym 6 days a week for 2-3 hrs and stuck to a really strict diet. I set out what i planned to do ; I competed in a bikini competition and I can't believe I got up on stage in a bikini in front of hundreds of people. I have to admit.. it felt AMAZING!  Being on stage was the most exhilarating feeling ever! Backstage was so much fun , i got to meet a lot of ladies & we were all on the same miserable diets! haha...all we wanted was our CHEAT MEAL & WATER! HAHA . These competitors work so hard on their training (for years) and are so disciplined. It was really inspiring to watch. I'm totally hooked and I'm going to start training for the Europa Super Show(August) next week. I need to make major improvements this time around (the glutes need special attention). I couldn't have done it without my trainer Breean of course...she pushed me and really took care of me through out this process.  I love her to death~ I get a whole week off from the gym, yummy foods and a well deserved R&R, who knows where I'll be ;)
