Candy Canary's Off To Thailand - Help Her Out!

Pastor -- yep -- Pastor Candy Canary's off to Thailand for mission work. She announced this on GeneX's Forum. Her message is below, and the link to her site is the title of this post.

Hello everyone-

I am writing you to ask for your monetary support. I am traveling to Asia for 30 days.

I will be partnering up with two separate missionary teams. One is ran by Joyce Moore, founder of the Abba House, www.abbahousefoundation.com , a non-profit organization catered to helping women and children who have been sold into the sex slave trade. With Joyce, I will be visiting women’s prisons, participating in some street evangelism, and traveling to areas that are saturated by the sex slave trade. I will be apart of a team who shares the love of Jesus Christ to the young children and women who are forced into this horrible world of prostitution. Many, if not all, have given up hope of escaping their imprisonment…for they know not of a place to escape too.

And the other missionary I will work with is Ron Morse. He is a missionary who is the founder of a ministry school in Thailand. He also has several schools in which he runs…all teaching the love and salvation of Jesus Christ. With Ron, I will be visiting several orphanages sharing the love and hope of Jesus Christ. I will also be visiting his schools and offering suggestions as to how he can better them for the kids.

Our mission: to encourage those who need encouragement, be a friend to those who need a friend, hug to those who are lonely, and share the powerful, saving message of Jesus Christ to all!

Please help me in our journey…we need money to buy Bibles, tracks, booklets, and supplies.

Please use the Pay Pal link on my ministry website, Sowing Seeds for Christ, www.sowingseedsforChrist.org , a non-profit organization, to make your donation. All donations will go toward my Asia trip.

Any amount will help!!!! I need the donations NLT Oct 10. (I depart Oct 25.) Oh, and please pray for me…I am traveling alone!

Thank You, Pastor Candy Canary

Kristy Hawkins - Latest Body Condition

Kristy Hawkins -- looking like the Superwoman she is -- shows us her shape and amazing arms and legs in this photo. In her blog, she reports:

So I took progress pics this morning to send to Ed and Betty. I think I made major improvements the last 2 weeks and my weight is down to 155 lbs--definitely within striking distance of the LHW class. I also got the comment that I look like a really buff Jodi Foster which means even my head is shrinking!

I guess I'll have to watch the DVD of Spike Lee's "Inside Man" to check out Jodi. Maybe Kristy will be in the sequel?

Introducing Sarah Pawlicki!!!

Sarah started her career last year, just 13 months after giving birth to her daughter Faith. Don't we all looked this good after popping out a little one!

More on Sarah, from Sarah and GeneX Online Magazine:

Hi, my name is Sarah Pawlicki. My goal was always to come back from pregnancy and prove that I could get my body back and I did! I won my first Figure competition, taking not only first, but overall as well!

This year I made the leap to Nationals competiing in the NY Team Universe and the USA's in Vegas. I did well for my first year compeating nationally! I know what I have to do for next year and am actively pursuing success in the spring of next year!

I also run an online training sight, buildyourownbody.com and have invented a new piece of equipment. The Spider ball is about to become the new face of fitness! The patent is pending and we can't wait to get it out to the world! Thanks for your attention.

Sarah Pawlicki

Best of luck to Sarah and her "Spider Ball"!!!

Kaylie Perry: The Petite Powerhouse

GeneX Online Magazine just posted a great new feature on the 5'1", 123 lb. Kaylie Perry.

The 33 yr-old middleweight made her national-level debut at the 2005 Nationals, nothing special, I know. Until you hear that just 16 weeks before the competition she weighed in at 173 lbs. Yup, a 50 lb. difference.

Here's the story.

By Hans - Photos By James Cook

Kaylie Perry was one of the most impressive new faces at the 2005 Nationals in Atlanta. At 5-foot-1 and 123 pounds, the 33 year-old from New Hampshire was one of the thickest-looking competitors in the middleweights. Making her national-level debut, she placed 8th in the middleweights and could have placed higher if she had been a little leaner in her lower body.

The way she looked onstage – and even the fact she made the middleweight class - was even more amazing to those that had seen her at the start of her 16-week contest prep, when she weighed 173 pounds.

Losing 50 pounds in 16 weeks, while holding on to her muscle, was a challenge for Kaylie to say the least.

“I was having crazy dreams about not making weight and being in the audience asking spectators for help and, being in the crowd when I should have been on stage,” she says. “I was listless, frustrated, you name it. I was feeling sick - and sick of the process. I prayed, ‘Just let me make it to Nationals.’”

But being up onstage at Nationals fulfilled a dream Kaylie had had ever since she was a kid, although she never really believed it would become a reality.

“It was exhilarating!” she says. “I never thought ever I would be competing at national level nor did I know what it involved to get there. To be among the top competitors in the sport was stunning. It wasn’t until I reviewed contest photos that I truly believed that I deserved to be there.”

Now that she has her first national-level show under her belt, she can’t wait to do another.

“Of course, top 5 would have been better, but I am very happy with the recognition and feedback I have received,” she says. “I had an awesome time. The next step is managing the off-season weight!”

Kaylie Perry, who is of French and Puerto Rican heritage, was born and raised in Laconia, N.H. In high school, she was “semi-athletic, with a muscular build” but says she was “average” at sports. However, even then she had a dream of what she could look like.

“I always had an appreciation for muscle on women,” she says. “I always thought I had the right genetics and a great body structure for bodybuilding, and I hoped that someday I could commit seriously to the sport and eventually compete.”

When Kaylie was 17, her older brother Aaron, who at the time was preparing for his first bodybuilding competition, introduced her to weight training. Kaylie began going with him to the gym and training her lower body using a Cory Everson routine she had seen in Muscle & Fitness. However, she was a chronic dieter most of her young adult life and always felt she was overweight.

“I was never happy with the way I looked and constantly struggled with low self-esteem,” she says.

For the next few years, Kaylie continued to train, but inconsistently. In 1998, Kaylie began training in a powerlifting gym, where she began to develop a base of muscle. But it was only in 2002, as she hit 30, that she finally decided to go for it.

She had moved to Florida and was living alone, away from family and friends, which she says gave her the solitude she needed to focus on her goal of developing a competitive physique.

“I needed to improve my image as well as self-esteem and overall take on a more positive outlook and attitude,” she says.

Soon after joining a gym in Florida, Kaylie met Amanda Dunbar, then an up-and-coming national-level bodybuilder and now a pro, who encouraged her to compete. That gave Kaylie the impetus she needed.

After a year, Kaylie moved back to New Hampshire a different, more focused person. She did her first show, the 2004 New Hampshire State, where she was the only female bodybuilder and automatically won. Later that year she went to New York to compete in the Tournament of Champions, and won the heavyweight and overall.

Next up was the Eastern USA, where she took first place and overall, qualifying her for Nationals. Kaylie says that show was the highlight of her career so far.

“It was there I experienced my first real victory,” she says. “The two shows prior to the Eastern, even though I won them they were so small I never considered them to be much of a challenge.”

At the Eastern, she also met Colette Nelson, who has since become a close friend and a key part of Kaylie’s prep team. It was Colette who helped Kaylie through her diet for Nationals, particularly when she hit a plateau.

“Colette stayed with me daily by phone to keep my head in the game,” Kaylie says.

Kaylie’s plan for 2006 is to compete at the NPC New England in May and re-qualify for Nationals in Miami. In the meantime she is working on developing her hamstrings and refining her quads while keeping her off-season weight under control.

“My maximum weight should be 155-160,” she says. “Dieting for my next show will not be nearly as tough if I keep it there.”

Colette Nelson, who will be working with Kaylie again this year, has no doubts about her potential. “She is going to be a top five middleweight finisher at this year’s Nationals,” she says.
