I’m going to post random things you may not know about me:
Everyone knows how life can be. Life is so effing stressful it can make you want to rip your hair out. Besides the normal small town immature drama, I have had a competition drop in my lap at the last minute.
The competition will be at the Street Machine Nationals in DuQuoin, Illinois this Sunday at 2 pm. $250 for first with crown, sash, & trophy. $150 for second with a trophy. $100 for 3rd & a trophy. National magazine coverage at this event, & I have viewed the website linked above in blue, & the event looks badass! If anything it will be fun!
I blurred last year’s winners faces seeing as I don’t have their permission to post this. Everyone knows I’ve been on a cycle of gaining. I feel in no way prepared! I have decided to cut carbs till Sunday night, & that makes me grumpy! I’m sure my husband & daughter would love to elaborate on this issue. So we won’t ask….
I’ve suddenly been thrusted into a bikini competition I was in no way prepared for. We know how bad I am with OCD and my perfectionism, & it can be both a flaw as well as a strength. Now I’m stressing. I’m working on posing, and I realize it isn’t a NPC event. I figure it’s practice for me.
I find myself faced with anxiety with a moral decision I’ve made about this contest. I will NOT shake my rump or sexually promote anything. I will be posing and keeping myself classy. In Texas I did participate with friends of mine at several local nonregulated bikini contests that also paid cash. They did a dance section. I’m not hating on anyone who does this kind of contest, but I do have a 9 year old daughter looking up to me as an athlete not a sexual object. I will not show her sexual moves are ok just to win. A true athlete, who has fans of a young age, needs to have a certain line they will not cross. I’m treating this as I would a NPC regulated bikini class competition event. Pictured below in a Texas contest, wear you shook your ass…..
It is a scored event, so this eases the anxiety. I still though, in the back of my mind think there’s going to be that one girl who tries to be sexy. Then the judges buy that crap, & she will win. Bummer right?! In the end, if I lose at least I know I did it with class, poise, beauty, & a bangin body!
Look at the above pic, I had to Google pretzel suits….. lame I know! LOL
I will be leaning out, hydrating & then dehydrating, fasting, cardio, & small weight training 3 times a day all week till saturday. Saturday I get my airbrush tan at Sunsplash Tanning located in Kennett, Missouri.
Until then I’ll keep you posted! Thank you for your continued support!
I first found Lecheek Nutrition when a good friend and IFBB Pro Haley was sponsored by them. I began to ask her for her opinion on what I should take to lose more weight because I had hit a plateau. Haley suggested OXY ECA BLK. So I used her code and bought myself a full bottle. I want you to note I have bought this religiously for years. I recognize I’m not talking about AmpiLean, but stay with me.
With this product this is the loss of weight:
As you can clearly tell it worked! Since I had lost so much weight I noticed my legs were bird like & my ass was legit nonexistent. So began the great weight gain journey. I quit ordering OXY ECA BLK for over a year because I was no longer in need of that kind of supplement. Imagine my surprise when I could not find it! It was the best supplement I had come across by far! It got me to really focus and push myself!
I began the search for the replacement for my OXY ECA BLK. After long hours of searching I found that OXY ECA BLK lives! Lecheek Nutrition simply changed the name to AmpiLean Black.
I gave you all the above information to let my readers know that I’ve been using Lecheek Nutrition’s products for over five years, and a tad bit of history behind the name and what it was called before AmpiLean.
Now for my review! As you can clearly tell this is going to be one hell of a review because I simply love it. I would say after purchasing 6 bottles from the Lecheek Nutrition I would know what I’m talking about. Since the formula for the black and the ampilean is exact same for the most part the review will be the exact same for both.
This supplement is for serious users only! This pre-workout pill is like Hydroxycut on major steroids. So if you’re a beginner buying this product I suggest you take only a half day at a time to see your tolerance. At the maximum dose you would need to put in 3 hours in the gym or run a complete 5K and put your all into it. If you think you’re going to take this supplement & do a small workout & then veg on the couch you’re in for a rude awakening. This product will give you the jitters and the shakes if you do not work out. If you do work out hardcore it is the best workout for focus, endurance, and maximum effort. I’ve used this supplement in softball games, running 5k’s, running mud runs, and hardcore gym training sessions. It has been one of the key successes in my athletic career.
This is a stimulant as well as a thermogenic. It will have a crash to it in the end. You may feel cold when you crash because that’s the thermogenic wearing off. It will speed up your heart rate so if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure I suggest you go to the doctor first before beginning this supplement. I even went to the doctor and had my blood pressure and heart rate checked before beginning the supplement just to be safe.
In conclusion if you’re a serious athlete and you hit a plateau this is a supplement for you. I have used a supplement for over 5 years and I would not write this kind of review over it if I did not have personal experience from it. Now that I’m down to prep season again I will be making the order for a new bottle of AmpiLean Black. In my opinion one of the best supplements on the market!
I had never heard of EFX SPORTS before in my entire life. I first came across them on a Facebook post. It was one of those contests that you always see entering by liking the page, commenting, and sharing in hopes to actually win something. I have won stuff on Facebook, like from Tropical Glamour Boutique in Kennett, Missouri. So when I got my package in the mail I was rather surprised! Let me show you what they actually sent me!
Yea! I know right! That’s a ton of shit! That tiny bottle in the center of the picture, that’s going to be the topic of this whole blog post!
This is a picture from their website. As you can clearly see they offer a package joint rehab support kit. It comes with joint support tabs along with the topical analgesic. I take Osteo Bi-Flex constantly, so I’m hoping at some point to be able to try their joint support and see if it works better than Osteo Bi-Flex. What I did get in my freebie pack from their online contest, was the topical analgesic that is also offered in their pack on their website. Plus, as you clearly see in the picture it’s on sale and cheaper than buying Osteo Bi-Flex.
I took a few pictures of their website to show what they say about this joint support kit. The pictures are below.
If you buy, tell the Brittany Luppy sent you and they will hook you up. *NOT A SPONSOR* If you want to to thir site now here it is, jyst click this link:
Now for my review. I’m going to rave on EFX Sports prices on this one. I have religiously used Voltaren gel which is prescription for over 4 years. It’s a topical NSAID. You cannot over use that product just like you couldn’t overuse ibuprofen or Tylenol. Since receiving this product for free through the mail, my husband and I both have use this product religiously. We have used it so much that I’m almost out and I’m not happy about it. Hey, EFX I’m about out if you want to send me some more hook me up!
My husband and I have both agreed that this product is better than Voltaren gel. I did not do the test just on myself but both my husband and myself did this experiment. He too has joint problems so I thought what a better way to see if the product really works is to let a second person have an opinion on the product. His opinion is exactly like mine.
I will be buying more of this product along with their pills in their kit. If the lotion works that well, then I want to see what the rest of the kit does also.
The only thing different I can find in this product that makes it different than any other topical cream I’ve used is this….. somehow in this cream they have put a patented pH controled matrix containing kre-alkaline which is buffered creatine monohydrate bonded to Ester fat fatty acids!
Below are the pictures of my product. Give it a try!
Who doesn’t love peanut butter fudge? I know I do! Sometimes the old protein shake can get real old real quick. I’m always searching for new ways to spice up my protein shake so it never becomes just normal. This post is dedicated to my favorite fudge ever; the great and amazing peanut butter fudge! The best part about this protein shake, no blender needed. I use my blender bottles.
The blender bottles I use usually have a whisk in the bottom of them, pictured below. This wisk, I have found, is the very best in the de-clumping procedure of protein mixes. Who enjoys clumps of protein in your mouth when you’re drinking it? I sure as heck don’t!
I recently switch protein powders. I never really thought of how much I was paying in retrospect to the flavor of the powder. Until recently, the only protein powder Walmart carried was Six Star Vanilla whey protein. I live in a small rural town of only 1,700 people. So if Walmart only carried one protein powder at the time that was my only option. I want you to know that the 6 star Vanilla whey protein powder was very drinkable and I have no complaints. Recently, Walmart started carrying MusclePharm’s vanilla whey and casein protein powder. This was right up my alley seeing I was about to buy casein protein by itself. I popped for the 5 extra dollars and got the vanilla whey & casein protein powder by MusclePharm. I am so happy I did! I simply cannot believe the difference in the taste of the vanilla protein powder. I don’t think I’ll be going back to 6 star unless I’m extremely broke!
In this recipe you do not have to use my brands. I am just showing you what I use.
In your blender bottle put 2 scoops of MusclePharm’s vanilla whey protein (SOLD AT WALMART)
3 Tbs of Plain PB2 (SOLD AT WALMART)
2 Tbs of glutamine powder (SOLD AT WALMART)
In the past I’ve added chia seeds to this shake. You never know they are there! Now shake shake shake-shake shake shake, shake your shaker, shake your shaker! And your booty!
Enjoy! This is my morning or evening sweet crave cheat!

Start by updating on my mama. She’s still having dizzy spells. Cause unknown. Ask for continued thoughts please?
I have not posted a personal diary post lately. Figured on rest day what a better day to do so! I only took a rest day due to extreme muscle spasms in my right lat.
As you all know me taking a rest day is hard. I did foam rolling twice today, & when I’m done posting I’m going for the final roll!
Tonight’s post is simply an update on my progress & a thank you to a new sponsor.
Thank you to Inception Labs for believing in me. They are not supplements, but they are a great company & I’m proud & honored to be a part of their team.
These are my 4 week progress photos, after my first pic being from the very beginning!
That’s all for this diary post. Thank you for the continued support of fans & fit fam! Hoping to compete again first of next year if not this fall.
I just need the cash flow to get the suit & extra expenses. Wish the workout Gods would drop someone at my doorstep like they did Inception! God works in mysterious ways!
HOLD strong! Battle Tested
I know these pictures are just horrible of me, but sometimes you just need to see a real person in their nonmakeup wearing state. Plus, the point of the pictures are my delts anyways!
Who doesn’t love the great and amazing delt day? Shoulder day is my favorite day, & some weeks I have to keep myself from doing delts every day. How funny would I look with nothing but huge shoulders?
I get the question from both males and females. The question is, what is my favorite shoulder day workout? So! here is my favorite deltoid workout!
♤EACH SET GETS WEIGHT RAISED
♤FIRST SET SHOULD HAVE 12-15 MAX REPS, & LAST SET WITH WEIGHT RAISED TILL FAILURE
DUMBBELL LATERAL RAISE + DUMBBELL FRONT RAISE (INSTEAD OF DOING A SET OF EACH BACK TO BACK, I DO EACH REP BACK YO BACK MOVEMENTS. MORE OF A COMPOUND MOVEMENT)
DUMBBELL ARNOLD PRESS
DUMBBELL BENT OVER REAR DELT + PLATE CAR DRIVERS
SEATED DUMBBELL PRESS
BARBELL PUSH PRESS + PUSH PRESS BEHIND NECK (ANOTHER SUPERSET DONE LIKE THE FIRST EXERCISE. MOVEMENTS BACK TO BACK.)
CABLE REAR DELT FLY
The weight you start out with should burn at 15. If you wanted to do 20 -25 reps on the first set, that’s perfectly fine. Burner sets are a great way to get those muscle fibers in action for better hytrophy.
I think there’s nothing sexier on a man or woman than nice shoulders. It’s my first look when I see someone, what kind of shape are their shoulders in!
When you Google the word superset this is what comes up:
So by terms of the gym, supersets are when two exercises are performed in a row without stopping. There’s no rule saying you have to rush from one exercise to the other. Supersets are not done for time. At first, some find endurance to be an issue, but the more you work at it the better your endurance will get.
There are two options when it comes to supersets. You can do supersets working the same muscle, or you can do supersets by working two different muscle groups.
Some examples of supersets working the same muscles are:
Rear Delts + Lateral Raises
Goblet Squats + Sumo Squats
Deadlifts + Suspended Hamstring Pullins
Crunches + Situps
Some examples of supersets working two different muscles are:
Hammer Curls + Weighted Tricep Dips
Deadlifts + Squats
Bicycle Crunches + Situps
Lateral Raises + Renegade Rows
The best thing about working two different muscle groups with supersets is in between each set the muscle will get a short break.
Supersets are some of my favorite workouts to do. I find that I get the most results out of a good couple of different superset exercises. Some workouts I concentrate on a single muscle group. There are some workouts that I will do two muscle groups in a super set. I try to vary them in my workouts, & I seem to get the most results that way.
Some of my favorite supersets are lateral raises combined with front raises, any squat combined with any lunge, & and when doing core I always do the same muscle group. My favorite two muscle groups to work in a superset is shoulders and back. Every superset will consist of anywhere between 4 to 8 sets. The reps on each set can vary between 10 to 15. When I’m pulling 8 sets, my reps can be only between 2 and 5 reps in a set at the end. It’s always wise to rest 2 minutes between each set. Your muscles need time to reset.
As we head down the road with one headlight, somehow we got turned around. Please, let’s not forget we are flatlanders not hillbillies. We head the wrong way going back to where we just came from. It was very dark outside because there’s no lights in the hills & woods. We had 1 headlight trying to navigate these winding hill infested roads.
My husband looked down to his phone to pull up yahoo maps, & swerved across the double yellow lines in a small town we were passing through. Of course, here comes the lights and sirens. The officer pulls us over asking for all our identification. As we hand him all the id’s; he then pulls my husband out of the car for a sobriety check. A sobriety check was to be suspected seeing as he crossed a double yellow. After passing the follow the light game, the stand & count game, & 2 breathalyzers later he was deemed completely sober. My husband then preceeds to ask the officer how to get back to the bootheel of Missouri. He let’s us know we were heading the wrong way, & tells us which way to go. So again the four of us push onward to our journey home with 1 headlight on a Chevy Malibu.
Somewhere along the way, I fell asleep in the car unbuckled. I never can sleep in the car for fear of a wreck while I am asleep. I will also confess a small part of that is a biproduct of me being so controlling about making sure I’m awake to yell at the driver if I get my butt hole puckered.
