Here we go...

Hey Everyone-

I have decided to start a blog instead of my message board. I receive so many emails, and my time to very limited on the computer so this way I can give you an insight into what I am training/preparing for in terms of shows.

I still take the time to answer my emails. It does take sometime to get back to everyone back I do get to them.

Here are a few shots of myself, getting back into shape post pregnancy.

I did lose a lot of muscle during my pregnancy as 4 months into the pregnancy I had some pain while working out and was so tired all the time that I basically stopped going to the gym. I did continue to walk, but not very often.

I was just coming off a show when I got pregnant. I started around 120lbs, and by the end of it I was 170lbs. That is right...50lbs I had gained. Ice cream is good for heartburn, no so much for your butt.

I am training for the upcoming FAP Nationals in Hollywood on November 17th to the 20th. I am really excited to be back into the swing of training and dieting. I have missed it.

Hay Allison :-).

I know you're going to be awesome in your contest, you always do display the heart and the courage of a true champion, which is why you are one.

Only you can truly know what you are feeling right now, with prep, and with looking after the young'n, but I know you'll be doing a fantastic job of both, and you will get back to where you want to be soon, I have no doubts about that.

Then again, I've never doubted you for a single moment, such are your outstanding athletic abilities.

It's a shame the board has gone, but change happens in this world, pretty much all the time, and so we embrace this new chapter in your life, and I want to be one of the first, in wishing you well with your new documnenting of your progress, and life.

You've always been a great inspiration, and that will never change.

GOOD LUCK, and may yours and your families tommorrows, be wonderful.

I will always be proud to support you, like I've done for about the past 4 years.

Best wishes Allison.
