I’ve been experiencing some pretty intense headaches and I didn’t know why..and then it hit me. This is how I’ve been reading.

Since I haven’t been wearing contacts, I also have neglected to remember my glasses. I’ve been working so much on the blog and keeping my head in books… no wonder my head hurts!

I remembered my glasses today, and I’m posted at Starbucks responding to your emails and writing your nutrition plans. One reader from Australia shared that she goes for early evening runs and returns home SOAKED because of the humidity. I feel bad for complaining about our dry heat here in Arizona, even if it is 102 degrees… :-0

I wanted to also let you all know that over the next couple days, ciaraLE.com will be switching platforms. This doesn’t really change anything on your end, but it does mean there may be a few things in “limbo” during the switch ! Also, there may be a few posts/photos/details that may get lost in the move (but we’re hoping for the best!) .  Thank you for being patient should there be any glitches! I started this baby from the ground up last August, but am in no way a computer genius! I asked my Daddy if he’d be able to help me to get this switch and I’m confident we’ll be able to do it as close as seamless as possible.

I’ve gotten a few more holds for items in the shop. If you’d like to put any item on hold, please email me as soon as possible so I can determine the ‘first come first dressed’.

Those members of PUSH who are starting their first week of their new eating plan and work out plan, YOU ARE GOING TO DO INSANE! I am so proud of you, and I think I can speak for the rest of the readers when I say that we are all rooting for you. If you’d be willing, please send in any progress, tips, trials, etc that you would not mind me posting for the rest of ciarale readers. We all spur each other on and without that, we would all be pretty lonely and unmotivated.

-For good measure-

here’s a photo of me trying to look pensive:

I AM MOVING TODAY!!!!!

For the first time since I’ve moved out of my parents house 4 years back, I am actually upgrading in BOTH environment and human connection. My excitement is encompassed by relief.

There is truly a season for everything. Even though my past year has been tainted with lies, hate, and overall deception- the past month has set the stage for this next season. Such beautiful people, incredible opportunities, a peace in life- I don’t deserve any of it…but I am grateful for it all the same and will be taking it with all the responsibility and strength it entails.

I want to make you guys proud.

After these next couple weeks of healing my body, resting, (who am I kidding) EATING, I will be hitting the training even harder(smarter)!

I am very happy that 3 ciarale.com readers have joined PUSH and I will be working on their personalized fitness plans and nutrition requirements. All three of them happen to be over seas, I’m thinking an “in person” check up will need to be arranged! hahaha (what? I need a vacation!!! :D)

Last thing, be sure to smile today. BIG.

 

 

 

 

 

ciaraLE.com and the NPC July Arizona Open

Here it is! The lengthy photo journey of my first taste of Bikini at the local show. You may want to scroll to the right, the pictures are quite large!

4:00 am : wake up and attempt to make my face match my body. Very exhausted already at this point!




11:00 am: My height class (Class A) walks out on stage! There were 17 girls total in my class.

















After the morning show, we had some time to go eat some lunch. On the way out we snapped a few with the always lovely Felicia Romero! I ate a panini and muffin for the first time in a long time and my belly got kinda poofy for the night show!! 😮 (all judging takes place in the morning show).


6:00 pm The night show! A few of the mobile uploads from behind the stage as well!






9:00 pm : After the results were posted backstage. Didn’t place, but got to give hugs to the devoted beautiful girls who did. It was so wonderful to be around other motivated people who live a life with accepted challenges and follow through! I couldn’t even waste any time to be sad, (most of all I just wanted my burrito 😉 ) but I felt SUCH satisfaction in knowing that I did my absolute best no matter what the judges’ decisions.

me with the handsome Scott Pasmore!

Troy Alves has seen me grow since I was in high school. So nice to still have him around!

And now…
what we (me) have all been waiting for…..


Uhm…I meant fried ice cream.

I don’t think friend ice cream exists…yet.(stroke of genius)

the food already started shocking my system after the chips and salsa. haha, ps. that’s dad’s hand.














I WAS IN SO MUCH PAIN even my neck was cramping up! It was like all of me was locking up under the shock! IT HURT SO GOOD! haha

LMFAO!!!

busybee.

so busy today but wanted to stop for a few moments to say hi and give a hug…*hug*

I hope you all are having an amazing start of the weekend, and that it carries through all the way into next week!
