Stage shots from the Toronto Pro & 2nd call outs for me.....4 shows in a 4 week period!! My body was so depleted for this show.
Few things I did differently on peak week which definitely affected my look.
1. I don't usually take diuretics but decide to take it for this show only because i was trying to come in as conditioned as possible and then soften up with some heathy fats and carbs didn't happen.
2. I also cut my water which I didn't do for the last 3 shows.
My feedback in NY was that I needed to come in a little bit tighter so i decided to do fasted cardio on peak week 3rd wrong decision. I never ever have done fasted cardio and it wasn't the right time to start trying things out. 😂😂 although I wasn't happy with how I looked I now know what not to do. I coach myself and it's hard not to have a 2nd eye to give you some critique in the process. If you look great going into peak week then we really shouldn't change anything. #lessonlearned #keepingitreal But guess what beautiful people I never loose, I either win or I learn. This was a lesson for me. Next stop #olympia2017 #littleflat but those #Glutes still popping 😂 photo credit @npcnewsonlineofficialpage

Graffiti Alley in the Fashion District has some of the coolest art I have ever seen. #beingatourist #tourist #toronto #canada #queenstreetwest

"He had a way of making her look at things differently. A way of making her close her eyes and see with her heart" Happy 37th Birthday to my love, my husband, my ride or die, my best friend! Love you more with each passing day!! The way he looks at me is "pure love" #10yearsstrong #hbd🎂 #love #mylove

"Crazy maybe, but she's far from simple and nothing but special" 😉#killit #killingitdaily #mymanscap A little #posingpractice before I head to Toronto.

You want to isolate those glutes??!! I'm always trying new ways to target this 🍑 and I keep my booty guessing what's next and my glute muscle speaks for itself. This exercise was performed on the leg extension machine. Amazing pump!! Give it a try. #gluteexercises #glutesworkout #videoexercises #exercisevideo #workouts #videoworkout #growthatbooty #4daysout #stillgrindinghard

Caution Long Post ahead 😂😂 22 Shows since I turned Pro in July of 2014. My Pro debut was in Aug 2014 where I placed 14th. My coach at the time thought it was best I compete in the masters division at the Pro Level (little did she know) that my determination was huge and my goal was to make it in the open division despite my age. I knew in my heart I had the physique to battle it out with all the beautiful young Professional Bikini Athletes in the open division (which for those that don't know the details of the sport "OPEN" means all ages, all heights)
I've gotten 3 first places which have allowed me to participate in The Olympia in Vegas in 2015, 2016 and I was the 1st athlete to qualify for 2017. So it will be my 3rd year in a row competing with the best of the best. After my pro debut I've placed top 5 in 17 of those 22 show. So yes I'm a little spoiled 😂😂 Now, drum roll please.... lol with all that being said I placed 8th last night at the NY Pro. Disappointed?! Yes!! Of course specially after placing 4th out of 30 girls in Pittsburgh just 2 weeks ago and then placing 2nd in Florida.
There was 37 beautiful athletes at this show and the 2nd biggest show I've done. But I'm more than happy with the physique I brought to the stage and I wouldn't change a thing. Hey you win some, you loose some. Like I said in my previous post my attitude and effort is all I'm in control of.
I had planned on one more show this season which is "The Toronto Super Show" next weekend. I've been wanting to explore and visit this City. Staying a couple of extra days to celebrate my husbands bday. We are going with a group of friends!! So I'm extra excited for this one! Taking some time off this summer before it gets serious again and it's time to prep for the Olympia 2017.
I want to thank my Sponsors @divinenutrition @lou_denofrio @buffbikinis and all those that have been part of my journey. Thank you for believing in me and encouraging me day in and day out. Pics @npcnewsonlineofficialpage @aroundthenpc_jm

It's the friends we meet along the way that helps us appreciate the journey. The best kind of friendships are fierce friendships where you aggressively believe in each other, encourage each other, and think the other deserves the world.
We have known each other now for over 3 years and even at the amateur level we have competed against each other and although it took a while for us to be this close I know I have a friend here for life.
So genuinely happy for all your accomplishments. @michellesylviafit

Next Stop, The N.Y Pro. Fun fact I was born in Queens, NY and although my soul is Colombian, I love N.Y and I try to visit several times a year. So excited to have my family and friends come support me next weekend! If you're in N.Y or in N.J area please come and supprt all the #ifbb pros competing, it's always an amazing show. @bevsgym #nypro
