I added my city Krasnodar ,Russia because this is really where I was born and I was there only till 3 years old , then my parents move to Moldova, as before it was Russia there was no confusion. But after 1992 every damn city became independent and create their own government LOL… so now when I see Russian sites where I already shining from their pages :D proud !!! VERY!!!

jr0Notice to all the girls that start and become among the first three in competition. There are people who are in charge of trying to conquer them in a cowardly way and without respect for other preparers, promising preparations and dreams that obviously all want to achieve, reach to the most high in the world of fitness, photography, competitions in the United States, Stands, sponsors, reports etc. Beware all what you paint pink because they may not be as nice as described.

Lisette Valdes: Miami Heat

SONY DSC“I stay lean all year long because I diet and maintain my training the same. I only change the intensity depending on my competition status. Off season, I diet as I would for a show with the exception that I do not boil my chicken twice in distilled water before I eat it (just once in regular water off season) or occasionally I may not eat boiled but instaed baked chicken,” she says.

“Off season I may allow myself to enjoy cashew nuts, maybe some great salad dressing on my salads that may contain deadly amounts of everything, but salad dressing is a gift to have!”

Jamie Hope Pollack: Competing Over 40

Jamie Hope Pollack - NPC- National Level Masters Bikini Competitor I decided to join a gym and hire a personal trainer as a 40th birthday present to myself. I buy myself a birthday present every year and as it was my 40th I wanted it to be something special and meaningful. I had clothing, shoes, bags, sunglasses and jewelry. I wanted something that would be for me. I thought about it and came to the realization that I had been living a pretty sedentary life for many years. I drove to work, sat in my office, drove home, and sat on the couch in front of the TV after work. I had not done anything physical in quite some time.
