Had Fun In Dallas

Before I begin I want to share something with you. I'm not going to mention names but there is someone out there who is not too happy with me and is bashing my name, not alone threatening me telling me that "they will see to it that I will never place top 5 in any show I do because of the connections or power they have in the NPC level. I've been doing my homework. Anyways, If you even knew what rude comments where said towards me. Well I wanted to post this and warn other fbbs that bodybuilding can have its sour apples. I think it is unprofessional how this person approached me and then verbally attacked me. I saved all the text I got from this person just in case. No worries my friend, your not hurting me any. I actually laughed about it. LOL. People who truly know me know what I am about. You'll see my friend. I have already talked to a few high end people on this matter as the comment is a threat. Again it was stupid and unprofessional the way this was handled. All your doing for me is giving me motivation and more fire to push forward and not look back.

Moving onward

Wow did I have a blast in Dallas. I wanted to do something out of the ordinary and I rented a car and Drove to Dallas for Nationals. I know I'm nuts. LOL. It was a long ride about 17 hours. It was well worth the trip.

I stayed at the host hotel " the Fairmont" and had a wonderful time. I finally got to meet a close friend of mine who has been there for me through thick and thin.

here is my take on Nationals.

Do u really you really wanna know my thoughts on Nationals . LOL I'll be sweet Little girl I am. ha ha. I will say I was very amazed on the way the judges how the judges went on the judging. It was all over the place.

The lightweights I didn't understand that call at all. Middles I was happy as I love Tina Chandler and always have admired her package. The light heavies well this was up in the air. Kristy looked great of course was harder and very well conditioned. You know I was cheering for Elena as she has been a pro or a while now and she would be a great force on the pro sage. But getting back to the judging I think the majority of the group was softer and i always thought they judge based on he majority of the group. Regardless all of the ladies looked sensational and put on a great presentation.

Now the heavies is where i got thrown off. Michelle Neil was sliced and diced, dry to the bone. She brought her A game. Kris Murrell was Massive, conditioned, and beautiful. Julia Stamper was also like Michelle Neil and had insane conditioning. Now I think her body fat was 3 % and she also gained more size since USAs. Talk about impressive. She should have placed higher. IMO Its Nationals and again we never know what they are looking for on that day.

Now there where some ladies up there that I had to question on "how in the world did they get qualified and Had they even heard of a clean balanced diet not alone cardio?". I know it may sound mean but when you are on that stage, you are competing among the best in the nation. On top of that you are representing the rest of us fbb athletes. Again not trying to sound mean but it is the biggest show on the national level, and i think some of those girls could have represented themselves better. Well thats my 2 cents.

Hanging out with "BIG" Kris Murrell and Dan Ray at the NPC All South

Hanging out with "BIG" Kris Murrell and Dan Ray at the NPC All South

I went to St. Augustine to talk to Tim Gardner as well as cheer some Team BodyTech athletes and a few other special people like Chris Eaddy who got me my win at the 03 Excalibur in CA, and my very good friend Ellen Woodley.

After the prejudging I met Dan Ray finally as we had talked alot via the Internet. Dan was very laid back and way cool. Then he introduced me to the 'Big" Kris Murrell who reminded me of a Barbie Doll with muscles. I have always admired Kris as she is big, symmetrical and pretty and that makes a bold statement in FBB. It was a real treat to be spending the day with these two. I didn't have much to do after the show and she invited me to hang with her and Dan. It was very sweet of her to offer me that as i was a complete stranger. Kris was very hospitable and made e feel right at home. She offered to take me and Dan to get something to eat, she even offered me her chicken and sirloin steak. LOL! As I know some that don't share ha ha

I had a real blast as we all talk about competitions, competitors, how she got started, etc. Dan was really funny and had some pretty interesting stories lol. He was telling about some of his MANY photo shoots for MD, and unique characters that he has met at some of the contest. ha ha. He is such a big time sport guy too lol. We plan to do a shoot next week in my off season state ...lol. Well I have to mention that Kris has this cute toy Chihuahua named China. I swear she must have weighed less than 2 pounds ha ha. She is the perfect watch dog lol. China is so smart and boy she has a bark on her. ha ha. I would like to get a toy dog but I am afraid my Bulldog could hurt her/him. She can be so rough.

Lastly I want to mention that Kris Murrell is very passionate and hardcore in bodybuilding and its people like her and many others that put a positive impact on the sport. AS yes she has a terrific package but what really makes her shine even more is her personality and attitude. I'm sorry but I just couldn't get over how massive she is. ha ha. She is going to amaze alot of people.

I will be in Dallas....

I am very excited attending Nationals in Dallas. I am sure I may get hounded with the typical "why I am not onstage" lol, and then then some make take some snap shots of course. :) hey I am here for fun and there is nothing better than being in a room full of muscle. haha

I may not be competing in Nationals, but I am still going to support my friends. Elena Seiple is one to watch in the light heavies. As we all know with the awesome line-up and also Steve Wennerstrom getting a recognition award. You can find out more here http://forums.musculardevelopment.com/showthread.php?t=12888 . Also I am supporting my other friends like Al who competed in the light heavies and came in 2nd. He was on the money and I really think Nationals is his for the taking. He has great genetics. Also There is his training partner Galina who won her lightweight class at the USAs. She has a complete package and definitely a favorite. In the heavyweights Michelle Neil is certainly bringing it. I like Kris Murell as she has a nice shape and great look plus her posing is off the charts. Another person who will definitely be tough to beat is Julia Stamper as she always has FLAWLESS conditioning. I am sure she will be a threat!
