3 more days until my competition!!!

Well it's been awhile since I've blogged, but I've been working pretty hard lately and haven't had much time. In three days I'll be in the Fitness New Mexico pageant in the model and bikini division. Let's just say I'm excited, anxious, nervous, hungry, tired and ready for a break! I've been training for 8 weeks and have lost 14 pounds so far. I have three more days of fine tuning and may go down a few more pounds. It's been an interesting and tough adventure thus far, but I'm glad I did it!!! I'll keep you posted on the event and let you know how it goes...:)

Wow, the number spot this year went to "House's" Olivia Wilde! She beat out the beautiful Megan Fox, who landed the number 2 spot. How did this happen? No idea. Well, looks like not all men think with just their lower extremities, because let's get real ladies, Olivia is beautiful, but not the least bit sexy!

Hydroxycut Recall!

I know this story is somewhat old, but I felt the need to feature it on my blog. As some of you know I will be in a fitness competition at the end of this month. Although I have used Hydroxycut in the past, I don't use it anymore. A lot of trainers and nutritionists I've spoke to do not endorse the use or need for energy pills or fat burners. For this reason, now I understand. This is what I found out...

One of the most popular dietary supplement brands used for weight loss, Hydroxycut, has had products linked to liver damage, and as a result, a recall is in full swing.

The Food and Drug Administration has reported 23 instances of serious liver injury that have been linked to the Hydroxycut line. In addition to use for weight loss, the Hydroxycut brand products are often used to boost energy. The FDA reports that last year, there were more than 9 million units of Hydroxycut products sold.

"The FDA urges consumers to discontinue use of Hydroxycut products in order to avoid any undue risks. Adverse events are rare, but exist. Consumers should consult a physician or other health care professional if they experience symptoms possibly associated with these products," said Dr. Linda Katz, interim chief medical officer of the FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.

The following items are being voluntarily recalled by Health Sciences Inc. of Oakville, Ontario, and Health Sciences USA Inc. of Blasdell, New York:

  • Hydroxycut Regular Rapid Release Caplets
  • Hydroxycut Caffeine-Free Rapid Release Caplets
  • Hydroxycut Hardcore Liquid Caplets
  • Hydroxycut Max Liquid Caplets
  • Hydroxycut Regular Drink Packets
  • Hydroxycut Caffeine-Free Drink Packets
  • Hydroxycut Hardcore Drink Packets (Ignition Stix)
  • Hydroxycut Max Drink Packets
  • Hydroxycut Liquid Shots
  • Hydroxycut Hardcore RTDs (Ready-to-Drink)
  • Hydroxycut Max Aqua Shed, Hydroxycut 24
  • Hydroxycut Carb Control
  • Hydroxycut Natural

I'm sure there's more of this to come with other supplements geared towards fat burning and super energizing.

Miss California to be Dethroned?

Things are not looking good for Carrie Prejean. The current Miss California may soon be losing her crown! Her contract with the Miss USA pageant prohibits her from being photographed “in a state of partial or total nudity.” A few years ago, the former Miss Nevada was stripped of her crown after provocative pictures of her with other girls surfaced. According to Perez Hilton, who's been covering this story extensively, "there are other - much more naked - photos of Prejean said to be hitting the Internets very soon, and pageant insiders exclusively tell us that the Miss California and Miss USA organizers are currently debating whether or not to dethrone Carrie.

Stay tuned!

Most Beautiful People!

Christina Applegate took the coveted cover of People Magazine's Most Beautiful People...and in her right, at the age of 37 she's more stunning than ever! Other celebs to make the list include veterans Halle Berry and Angelina J; Christina Aguilera, JLO, Zac Efron, and newcomer Freda Pinto. The only thing I didn't like about the issue is the ever boring, "let's not wear makeup section." Yes, they look horrid without it, and this Fab issue is all about fantasy, not reality...Put the makeup back on (90210) cast!!!
