George!

I think George likes me.
I'm even beginning to see a little "V" peeking out down there.
I couldn't be happier.
You'd think that I received some awesome present, but no, just my ab obsession. =)
YaY!

I love you George, but don't tell S.
Although, I think he's onto me between my boyfriend Gym and now, you.
Now, if booty could get on board with our plans!

Denied or Rather Delayed

I have been professing that this year would be season of the slut wear.
I had been planning to hit our adult/stripper store all week.
Today, it is cold & rainy boo.
So  I had to dress warm to go.
This is what happens when you're trying to try on stretchy dresses with tights, knee socks & combat boots.


Actually not bad, lol.
I wound up with two dresses and a slew of other items.
It also turned out that they gave me a free pair of shoes with every $50 spent.
Yeah, I wound up with 3 New pairs of stripper shoes.
And I'm part of there rewards program & got another $15 off.
Can you say, "eff yes!"

So, now I'm back home with fresh French Pressed coffee. 
Sweet, sweet coffee.

I've also found my next mission.
I will do this.

Ab Obsession, & other Funny Shite

Have I mentioned that I began paper journaling again, besides starting the photo album?
You know, so that when I'm old and senile the folks taking care of me will know that I was once a bad ass bitch?
In the course of this, I've remembered some funny stuff.  I'm going to share some of those with you towards the end, & sprinkled through posts..
 I think that I'm coming to have an unhealthy obsession with George, my abs.  I really do talk to him, pet him & admire him. I think S may even think I'm going slightly nuts because I'm constantly lifting up my shirt around the house and rubbing them & going "Can you see them?"  I'm definitely a dork.
Last night at team workout, I got to meet Creative Galina. You know her & her Dumbbell Couture jewelry? I saw her post on Facebook and that she was at Armbrust. I commented, "Hey, I'm headed there now." She said to hurry it up, lol. I met her in the locker room, not knowing she was coming back later to talk to us. :) I now have another girl crush and her booty is fine! ~booty envy~


I'm probably going to be condemned to hell for this one. Then, I remember that my staunch Catholic mother even smirked. Of course that was after her giving me the first & middle name spoken in that admonishing 'I taught you better' tone.
The Mormons are pretty adamant here when stalking out prey. They came religiously daily to our door. Every day, I tried as politely as possible to deter them.  There's only so much that a southern genteel lady can endure though.  I actually prepared for their coming the next day. I dressed all white trash, wife beater, grabbed a bottle  of god knows what & cranked up the tunes.  When they rang the bell that day, I answered and made their day when I told them, "So, we've discussed it and we've decided that we're interested, but we have one question." Their little eyes lit up and they nodded, you know in that go on manner? With as straight of a face as I could manage I asked, " Yeah so we want to know when we get the 2nd wife?" And they have never been seen at our house again. And that is your laugh of the day.

Live, Laugh, be a Goofball

How I TRY to live life.
"Life's riches can't always be measured in dollar signs. Sometimes we've got to measure wealth in smiles. I spend a majority of my days laughing & smiling no matter what is going on. I have a temper and often get angry but fifteen minutes after whatever made me angry is gone I'm smiling again." - Ripp from Scott Hildreth's UNSTOPPABLE

Who would have thought that such great advice would come from such a dirty, dirty book?
I will just mention this quickly, bare knuckle boxer, hard-ass, funny, huge (in more ways than one), tattooed.....
this bitch power walked to buy it.

I have been spending far too much time at night reading on the Kindle.
It's evil, I tell you.
So many books waiting in the que.
I swear time flies and look up and it's 1 or 1:30am.
Ugggh.
I do it to myself because I'm up no later than 5:30 am to start the day.

But! There are so many muscled, tattooed, hot book boyfriends to plow through!
~snort~

I mentioned that I named my abs, George.
I have thought about it and would like to add the goal of getting "Girl Gutters" to the list of Operation "Fine Ass Booty."
Damn, if I'm going to continue to do this, I want to do it right!
I have priorities, screw my floppy, deflated boobs, I want a "DAMN" fine ass and abs that are equivalent to guys' cum gutters!

Then, I'll be running around in as little clothing as legally possible.
Don't know, S may actually like that, lol.

In the meantime, I'm going to make myself laugh. A. Ton.
That should help with the abs too, shouldn't it?

Look!

They're still there!
I mean, you can sort of see them even with the tan fading.
Now, I want to be tan ALL  the time.
Although, not like the "tanning mom" chick, that's not the look that I'm going for.
I said I would keep recording them until I couldn't see them any more.
Now, I just want to keep them and love them and rub them and squeeze them and name them "George."


Now, I want the girl version of cum gutters.
Another goal besides the ass of gold?

Let's chat about bOObs

I used to be so adamant about not wanting any plastic surgery done.
However, have you seen "There's Something About Mary?"
Do you remember the scene where her old, leathery, suntanning neighbor is in the window and they show her deflated and floppy boobs?

Yeah, that's what I feel like right now.
Little deflated bagels sitting on my chest.
I'm waiting to see if they ever inflate again.
I have contemplated popping them out and asking opinions of folks.
I mean, pretty much everyone back stage saw them during tanning touch up in the morning, haha.

S is so nice because he swears they're fine.
Hahaha, so sweet

The thing is I've always wanted smaller boobs.
Just not these puppies, lol.

If the fat from my rear could funnel its way up there, I'd surely be appreciative.
I just want them perkier.
I suppose that's a little too much to ask with the low body fat AND age.
Bummer.

So, now I'll be thinking about boobs.
I can now go bra-less or wear a bandeau bra, which I could not do before.
If I lift up my arms, they still look good, lol.
Think I can walk around with my arms up?
Shoved up in a bra they look good....

Tell me ladies who have bought some luscious tata's, what are your feelings?
Love 'em?  Would you do it again?

I guess I can console myself with this?

Man Crush Monday

Really, I wanted to say "Man Meat" "Man Candy Monday."
Is that so wrong?
It is the day after Easter, and I didn't partake of anything of the candy variety.
So, this is my sugar replacement, haha.

Do you remember the episode of "Friends" where they discussed their top 5 celebrity "freebie" list?
Or am I showing my age here?
In case you're not familiar, the list contained 5 people you were allowed a free pass with and it wouldn't be counted as cheating.
Fun, right?
Yeah, I have lists.
In actuality, I know if I ever really met any of these folks and said, "Hey  so you're on my freebie list. Hubs says it's cool if I take you back and do really wicked, dirty, dirty things to you that you could  probably never even imagine," that they'd laugh in my face. Hence, the fun of the list and being able to openly lust, ogle, drool, admire these men. 
That's my story, and I'm sticking to it. 

One more quick funny. You know those things on guys that make smart girls stupid?
Some call it the Adonis Belt.
A friend of mine told me one better.  He is also someone that has a great appreciation for the male form.
When he told me what he calls them, I really did spit and choke on my coffee.
He told me they are called.....
CUM GUTTERS!!!!
What?!
See, all of  my friends have dirty, filthy minds.

Now, on with the man candy!!!!

If you haven't seen this man, well, you're welcome!
This is Alex Minsky.
He's a former Marine,  now Fitness model, and underwear model. I've even seen him on the cover of a few steamy novels recently.
This guy definitely puts me in the dreaded cougar territory because I think he's around 25.
But that's ok because I'm just admiring the pretty :)

Schmoop and then some pimping out of one of my favorite authors!

Here's a little funny for you.
Every morning when I wake up, one of the first things I do is go to the mirror and check and see if my abs are still there, hahaha.
They are!!!
I am seriously considering getting some self tan because I'm fading and they disappear in the light, booo.

So, here's my schmoop.
As homesick as I get and get on my kicks of going, "I don't like living here in Colorado", I do.
I am super grateful
I know that back home in New Orleans, I would have never had the opportunities that I have been given here.
Let's face it.
Health and fitness are not a priority there.
I also can not believe the people that I am surrounded by and have interactions with here.
I mean, who would have thought that I would see these athletes that I have admired on a pretty regular basis, face to face?!
How crazy is that?

I thought I would touch on something Coach said to me.
I mentioned a few posts ago that I realized that I have more self-discipline than I previous believed that I could ever have.
She said, "Discipline is Freedom."
Profound.
It's been running through my brain on constant repeat, and I realize how true it is.

Gosh, I love these people.

One last thing, I was trying to capture the abs.
That didn't happen so well, but I did notice that I have BABY SHOULDERS!
Hip, hip, hooray!!



Quick fun fact:
I used to enjoy writing, smut.
I used to write erotic short stories.
At one point, the girls that I worked with would ask me to write stories for them.  I would make them into the characters based on what they told me and who/how they wanted their love interests to be.
It was silly and fun.

There's a little insight into my obvious love of that genre.

I've mentioned Lena Black before and her novel A Dominant Man.
She is a wonderful lady.
We've had a few interactions/chats online, and I grow to love her and admire her more.  Her heroine, Gabrielle Hyde, just strikes such a chord with me personally because we have so many experiences and quirks that are alike.
I love that Lena has Facebook pages for her characters Elle (Gabrielle) and Damian Hunt.  They interact online and it's like fun little vignettes throughout the day.
This book is steamy, and just traps you!
Oh!  And Lena gave me a sneak peek at the first chapter of the sequel.
My lips are sealed, but I'm so giddy for the next book to come out!

Hunt and Elle's obsession, lust, and love will entwine them together...But, will it be enough to survive the ghosts of their pasts when they make themselves present?

♥♥ 5.0 out of 5 stars ♥♥ By Books and Beyond Fifty Shades
Lena Black hits it out of the park with her debut novel, A Dominant Man." "I found myself wanting to be best friends with Gabrielle and falling in love with Damian from page one. With a change from most usual romance novels, I found it refreshing that Gabrielle was a strong, sassy, and take charge kind of gal. Damian finds himself blindsided by this powerhouse of a woman who argues and fights back with him, while Gabrielle finds herself feeling innocent and vulnerable in the presence of the enigmatic Damian Hunt. The lust, action, suspense, and even love in this story was so thrilling that I could not put it down!"

Five Fun Facts and Pimping Out Authors that I'm having Font Love For

So, I'm back from the gym, not quite ready to get to my contract work, and have fresh French Pressed, hot, black coffee.

To step away from fitness for a moment, let's have some fun!
I'm going to chat with "Five Fun Facts About Me."

Then, I'm going to share and pimp out authors that I currently love.
There are two that have amazing books and are so open to fans and their questions.  Today, I will introduce you to one (Lucian Bane) in this post.
Then, maybe later today or tomorrow, the other. 
(Lena Black.  I've mentioned her before and want to go more in depth about my love for her.  She is amaze-ballz)

  1. I used to be a writer for the now defunct nolamusic.com.  Yep, they used to send me out to venues to interview bands, review their concerts, etc.  It was a fun gig.  Toward the end, I was even editing and proofreading the other writers' work.  ~gasp~ I even got a small payment!  Really, it wasn't too shabby for a gig like that back then.
  2. I still currently host a podcast.  We are not as consistent as they should be.  Most were done in a state of utter inebriation.  Hmmm, maybe that's why they are so sporadic, hahaha?  (You know the past year has been super limited on the libations for me.  And you competing ladies know how it is in prep or close to prep, nada)

3. I spent a ton of time in the goth/fetish scene back home.  Went to a few fetish balls, observed some things, talked... Hey, Gene Simmons even showed up at one we were at.  Funny.
I used to even know a professional Dominatrix, meaning she was paid for her services and was even in a few mainstream adult fetish films.  I found her very intriguing and interesting.  She even had a "dungeon/playroom."  She had a medical background so many of her clients wanted special things done to them which included lots of needles. I'll leave your imagination run.  She wound up moving her and her dungeon to California.  She was also a burlesque performer back home.  She also did shibari. (I know another lovely lady here who does shibari and kinbaku and does demonstrations - she's also a burlesque performer.) 
Needless to say, I've read "50 Shades of Gray."  Eh.  
(I happen to have another fun fact that happened recently, with a "DOM" contacting me out of the blue,.... say what?  But that's for another day.)

4. Which leads me to 4.  For the newer folks who haven't read for very long, I also was a burlesque performer here in Colorado since 2007.  I guess that I've retired since the beginning of 2013.  Fitness sort of took over.  I enjoyed it though, thoroughly.  

For the record, I was also a new recruit at the same time for roller derby.  However, the bruises and fishnet burn did not exactly make for a pretty burlesque performer.  Since I was being paid handsomely to perform, I ditched scrimmages and became a referee instead for the roller derby league.



5. This is something new.  Yesterday, I was contacted by a local group to see if I would be interested in being in a local horror, zombie film and if I would be comfortable with dialogue.  Interesting, no?  I'm currently finding out information.  This may or may not pan out to be something that happens.  All the same, it was neat being asked.


Author Love

Now, on to some juicy stuffs.  I got back into reading hardcore this past prep.  Stair-monster time was part of the time.  Gotta love a kindle with a big screen and only having to swipe a finger as your panting away. Then, being exhausted every night, I would read in bed until I passed out. 

I have recently become acquainted with Lucian Bane and his works - DOM 


This is a little blurb from Amazon's author's page:
I'm an Ineffable Dom. That just means, do yourself a favor and please don't try to describe me or fit me into your categories. Complicated Dom, Intricate Dom, Confounding Dom work too.

Here's the interesting part.  Lucian is a real Dom.  He offers advice to real men and women about any of their questions.  He has been doing Q&A's online, as well.  He's funny, witty, and loves interacting with fans. If this isn't enough to love him, there's the books!  The writing! ~hot~

Currently, there are three books out in the series with more to come.  I have the first two, and last night, I was lucky enough to wind DOM WARS Round 3 from Naughty Lit for Chics

What are these books about, you ask?  Lucian Bane!  

Tired of the way Doms are portrayed or thought to be like, he is a "real" Dom.  Though he has quit and left the lifestyle, circumstances push him to audition for a new reality series looking for just that and called, of course, "DOM Wars."  He meets Tara at the audition, naive to all things BDSM but needs the money (one million dollars!) that the winner will receive from the show.  I'll leave you at that to pique your interest.  

In Round 2, Lucian and Tara have made it to, well Round 2 of DOM WARS!  The challenges become harder for both the show and them.  The characters evolve more here.  You get to know them in more depth, and I grew to like Tara more.  She rubbed me the wrong way in the first one, a little bit.  Plus, you have the other "cast" to learn more about too.

And hey, the story is just hot.  I love the male point of view for a story like this.  It gives it a different edge from many of the other stories out there, most of which have become quite mundane and predictable.

I'm giddy with anticipation to dig into Round 3, now that I've received it.  I also know that I will be utterly heart broken when he finally finishes writing the books. 
Go, give this series a read!  And show them some love on the Book of Faces!

Picture Palooza Part 2

Did I mention that while watching some of the prejudging, I sat, of course, with Sara AND Alina Poppa?
Sweet, right?

Today, I met with Sara for the after comp plans of food, exercise, weaning off and back on, you know.
We discussed future stuff.
Basically, I knew this.
If I compete again, it won't be until the end of next year.
This body has a TON of work.
However, I competed this time 5lbs heavier and with a lower body fat percentage than last time.

We're going to try keeping me leaner in the off season, but still build, just slowly.  My size and age don't help matters.
It's a little disappointing, but I knew it.
It's only logical.
Plus, I knew the minute that I saw all of the other competitors.
I'm not naive, but I wanted to give it a go. =)
Plus, I just want to become a sexy beast no matter what.

So, on to the silly!

 I wanted raw oysters!
I was so sleepy.

Picture Palooza Part One

I decided to post some pics first. There's still some greAt ones that Sara's fiance took and sent me too that I want to post too!  It was a great fun day, if long, lol. Had to have makeup done at 3:30 am.  My only complaint this past week? Thirst... it seemed all of physique ladies ha  that same one.  We all just wanted water, water after the night show.

So, I got trophies. However, I was last, lol.  They're we're only 3 of us in Master's 40+. I got 3rd. There were 5 in my height class in the Open. I got 5th. It's all good though. I loved it. I knew going in that I still have so much to do and a ton to grow. I will say that all of the women in Physique were ripped and awesome looking - not me, lol.  They were also ! ok nice & encouraging that I didn't even feel bad or overly embarrassed to be standing among them. Yay!

And this time I actually had abs too!

I saw Phil Heath & Branch Warren wandering about.

Sara's fiance, Barry, brought us Voodoo doughnuts for afterwards. Oh my goodness! My belly hurt after but it was delicious!!







 
My fellow physique gal & teammate & friend T-Bone!
Funny, I have 2 girlfriends nicknamed that!!
