I just got back from the Women's Strength Extravaganza! It was great meeting all of y our-- thanks for your support! I had a wonderful time. I must say the highlight of the night was seeing Heather Darling bench press 500#. She is amazing.

I was very proud of my friend Malea Jensen who won her Heavy Weight class. She worked veyr hard for that show and was very happy with her win. She will be preparing for the 2003 USA's in Vegas.

Unfortunatley -- I was in a lot of pain yesterday. I pulled a muscle in my lower back deadlifting last weekend. I just can't believe how bad I feel right now. It took me about 3 hours to get out of bed. I tried to ride the bike at the gym -- it was pure torture. I just can't believe my luck. I am going to have to take it easy this week. I really don't have much of a choice. I am just going to push the cardio and do what I can.

I am going to get a deep tissue massage tomorrow night. I just can't wait. I am looking forward to it.

I will let you know how it goes.
