Every day I hear from amazing women all over the world who write in to me asking for advice about getting into the best shape of their life. And over the years I've noticed a pattern with these emails, the very same pattern that had me stuck in the thought process that I would never be able to lose weight.

I want to hear from you! What do YOU do to stay on your diet and exercise plan when you travel? Do you have any special tricks/tips to eat clean? With love, Kristin

Welcome - From the Editor > tattoo

Dollie Mulholland

I too am heavily tattooed, being a tattoo artist, its been in my life a good while lol. I will be doing my first bikini competition in October and I was worried at first too, but then I did a ton of research! More and more competitors are tattooed. Although, Ive seen some wear coverup makeup. I may do the makeup for this, but only on my arms, because it seems as though you can see far more definition in the muscles when they aren't covered in ink. :/

Exercise > glutes

Hi Sue! You cannot target fat loss for one specific area of your body. So if you're tightening up, which mean you're just losing fat, then keep doing what you're doing. If you're like most women the fat on the booty and thighs is the last to come off. :) With love, Kristin

Exercise > glutes

I am trying to compete in my second bikini comp. The judges told me to tighten up the glutes. That' is what I am trying to do in order to try again in December. I need my rear to shrink. I have a nice shape and it appears to be tightening up but I need to burn some fat off the rear in order to get it tighter. Can anyone order advice or suggestions? Thanks Sue

Competition Tips > competing with cellulite

Dollie Mulholland

So I am 11 weeks out from my first bikini competition. I have no coach, but Im working hard. I believe Im doing well, but am still dealing with cellulite. I have ALMOST COMPLETELY minimized leg dimples with weight lifting and I am so happy with that! But being 35, a mother,eating basically junk my entire life and well, good ole genetics, I have 2-3 dimples on my booty :( Im crossing my fingers that the stage lights, the tan and the next 11 weeks I can try and make them appear even smaller. I know glutes are a huge part! and Im totally self conscience. Has anyone had trouble with this issue? Or seen any other competitors with these little flaws do ok?

Competition Tips > To get a coach or do it alone?

Kristin Shaffer

Looks like he doesn't have the application posted yet since the show is so far out. But typically "novice" means you haven't placed in the top 3 in your class in any other show. "Open" means anyone can compete no matter how you've placed in the past. Once he has the application posted for that show he will clarify that. I hope that helps. With love, Kristin
