To start off, all I have to say is. “What a heck of a week, I’m glad this madness is over and time for more fun!”  During this past week I was sick, but now I am feeling much better.

I only took one morning off training and did another product review. This time it was the Bas Rutten O2 Trainer vs. the Elevation Training Mask.  Check out the video review below.  All I have to say is nothing can simulate the mask, it’s amazing and I love mine!

Proud to say, Training Mask is my newest sponsor.  I work very hard and I am grateful my skills, attitude, and marketing are getting me recognized by reputable companies.

Do you want to simulate high elevations, raise your VO2 levels to the max and have the best cardio available?  Get the Elevation Training Mask!  There is NO room to “cheat” in the mask (if adjusted properly).  A little something my coach always says. “You are only cheating your opponent”.  And who wants to do that?

I have NEVER gassed out in a fight and I don’t ever plan on it… Both mental and physical conditioning is necessary to achieve the level of being “well rounded”.  Learning to keep your composure has got to be a hard task, and I am thankful it comes pretty naturally to me.  I’m a fairly mellow person, despite having a hard time sitting still.

Our MMA program is slowly growing.  It was great to have some new people in class this week, a couple were familiar faces too!!  I want to thank all of our students for their hard work, it will pay off!  Great results are never instant.

Wednesday was Mark’s 13th B-day.  He totally rocks!  I do have to say, we are truly blessed and proud to call him our young man.  He is an honor roll student, with almost straight A’s.  Mark also plays basketball for his school and practice is four mornings a week, which start at 6:45am (drop off 6:30am)

And his first game was Saturday!  Would have loved to be there; but, I flew back to Oregon to pick up our little lady Brooklyn.  Jason will be rooting Mark and his team on with the camera, recording it for me.

We were able to muster up a bed, thanks Jen!  Twin bedding and some accessories compliments of Kat, you also rock!

Here is the latest on my fight February 11th in Everett, Wash.  IT’S OFF!!!  You can thank Riad Youssef of Fight Night Entertainment.  Come to find out, (via the Washington State Athletic Commission) he will NOT be having any pro’s on the Feb. 11th card. No matter how much money or lawyers he claims to have.  The reason is that he had past “issues” with pros in his shows (usually means $).

We had numerous friends and people in the sport dually warn us.  Being the nice people we are, we were giving him the benefit of the doubt.  That will never happen again… And thanks to those who contacted us when you heard I was fighting for this promotion.

To say the least, this Riad dude has known for two weeks (per the commission) that my fight, along with two other pro female bouts were NOT going to be happening Feb. 11th; yet still didn’t let us know!! My coach was the one who initially found out.

So for the past two weeks I have been advertising his promotion/show on my website, Twitter, Facebook, here on, and interviews.  All to get there after training, making weight, advertising/putting people in the stands, (that is my hometown area too, PNW) all for a fight that wasn’t going to happen, and he knew it!!

On top of the fact we confirmed an ammy fighter for a title fight (free fight for Riad) on the card, he was getting two fights for one, he refused to fly us.  It would have only been three tickets, since we have the same coach…Ryan, our ammy fighter and friend, isn’t just my teammate, but one of our students.

He wants to turn pro eventually, so fighting out of Montana is very important for his career.  That’s why I agreed we would drive through half of Montana, all of Idaho, and half of Washington during the worst part of the winter months out here, to save Riad a few bucks.  Feel free to let him know how you feel about his unethical practices ~

I want to let my fans know that there are other promotions in Washington State, and I will be looking into fighting on one of their cards in the future.  Thanks for all of your support!  I also want to thank Sally, for accepting this fight with me, and we will definitely have to set this up again!!

When one door closes, another opens — I’m hoping to get some BIG news out soon…

All of that and it wasn’t even the weekend yet.

So, for Saturday we were up early.  I flew back to Oregon to pick up Brooklyn, my step daughter.  Five-thirty a.m. I was at the airport and flying all day.  Luckily every flight went smoothly and was on time.

Mark had his first basketball game, they won 40-27!!  Great job guys!  Brookie and I landed in Billings about 6:30-ish, so glad to be home.  The guys were right outside with the suburban and out on the frozen sidewalk, happy to see us!  Lots of hugs, we loaded up and drove home.

We had some food, showers and then headed over to Ferg’s so the kiddo’s could play, and we watched the fights (well, most of them). Sunday we went to the store and chilled around the house.  Nice day, oh and it started snowing…

Thanks to all of my family, friends, and fans for your continued support.  Thanks to my coach/hubbs, our students, for putting in work at the gym.  Thanks to Jack Bratcher and the whole crew at ProMMANow for all of your continued love and support.

Last, and certainly NOT least….My sponsors ~ Polanti Watches ~ Training Mask ~ ~ Super Body Care ~ Damage Control Mouthguards ~ A.C.E.S.
