Yesterday I had a SUPER LONG 6 hr photoshoot. I am pooped!!!!! But I had to do it for 2 reasons. #1. It’s not easy to be “this lean” aka competition ready lean all the time so gotta capture it while it’s good. And #2. I am taking pics for FITNESS Mag! They need a few shots of me doing my fitness thang for their July/August issue featuring all sorts of bloggers. I have to rep what “healthy living blogger” means. I think I was able to portray that in the pic below!

(By the way, these are just iPhone pictures – I took pics of my photographer’s screen so it’s not the best quality but you get the idea!) Anyway, I looooove how the concept of this shot played out. It’s pretty much the story of my life.

So obvi I also needed an Oxygen shot!!!! DUH. Hahhahahaha.

And a bikini model shot! DURRRR. I got the earrings and bikini from Forever 21 on Friday. I love love love peacock right now. Can you tell that my earrings are actually peacock too?

I had to get tanned the day before. My palms are orange from using self tanner but you can’t see that thank goodness!!! My mom did my hair. It’s just teasing, no extensions. And I did my own makeup! This will save a TON of $ come Saturday for the bikini comp. I am happy we had a test drive.

There are TONS more pics. I will post when they are sent to me so you can browse thru the gallery. Oh, I should make a gallery page!!!! Good idea.

I am sooooo super duper excited about competing on May 5th!!!! I haven’t been this lean with this much muscle, well, EVER. So I am so pumped!!!!! The whole experience has been extremely rewarding and I feel like I won already!

Later today I will have the Brokenhearted Ab Challenge up for you to try! It’s gonna be fun I promise :)

OK tired. Much love and ttyl,


  • Hi Cassey!
    I’ve always wanted to meet you, and when I saw you and bubzbeauty on a photo doing Pilates together, I was inspired.

    Thanks for helping me a lot!

  • You recognize therefore considerably on the subject of this matter, made me personally consider it from a lot of various angles. Its like men and women aren’t interested until it’s something to do with Lady gaga! Your individual stuffs nice. At all times take care of it up!

  • Hi Cassey!
    I love, love, love your videos. You are my favorite fitness instructor by far. Since I do you youtube video series together with my vegan diet I feel fabulous. You look great!

  • You should wear the peacock bathing suit to the competition, it’s such an interesting (and pretty, duh) bathing suit! That first shot of you is so pretty, I like your hair to the side.
    Congrats on the Fitness feature, I’ll definitely be picking it up! :)
