Operation Pro

I'm swamped with projects at work, so I don't have time for a long post. Just wanted to give you a quick update that Operation Pro has officially begun!

Operation Pro is my focus for the next 31 weeks. It's a clean diet, intense workouts, and a focused mentality. I have to admit, my focus has wavered quite a bit since my last show. I've debated competing in Bikini, then decided to stick with Figure. Then I incorporated plyos into my workout ... and discovered that they don't work for my body. Then I wanted to drop some weight to maintain at a lower weight, and then I decided not to.

Enough wavering back and forth! Thank you for sticking with me on my off-season roller coaster ride! Now I'm asking for your support for the next 31 weeks while I train for my title match: Team Universe.

If I want that pro card, I need to focus on it. As IFBB Pro Candice Houston said in an interview earlier this year,
"If you were a Pro, how would you train? How would you eat?"

I need to train like a Pro and eat like a Pro.

And most of all, I need to THINK like a Pro. I need to believe in myself ... to believe that I CAN earn my Pro card.

It's Go Time! Let's do this thing!


  1. Goooo Kari!

    Here's my official "Hello!" I'm coming out of "hiding" HAHA!

    I've read many of your posts the past month as I completed contest prep for my first Bikini competition. I love your "real" approach to diet and prep and how inspiring you are to stay the course! Good luck this prep! I have no doubt you will go Pro! :) I'll be following along as I plan to compete my heart out in Bikini *and* Fitness this next year before Hubby and I try for babies! I just gotta get it out of my system before my belly expands HAHA! ;)
