It has been a good couple of weekends ... even though my Bucs lost out on our first wild card playoff game - ugh!!! We so had it too! Whatever I can't even talk about it because it irritates me. Well hey at least we made it that far.
Well as for some new exciting things happening, full of surprises. I'm making a DVD and I'm totally stoked. Actually two of them. I'm a super heroine in them, but I can't tell you much more about the movies cuz then I'll give it away. But there is definitely a need for scripted movies with good stories that have action heroes that are fems who can really kick butt!!
Training is going very well and I am dieting for the upcoming season already, very specifically though right now to look how I need to. As you all know I had several injuries this past year and I had injured my back again in December and was out a little bit. But I'm back again, and even though it hurt in December I was still lifting the whole time, make sure you check out my training log in my back stage area on FigureRX.com. I keep tabs on my workouts, poundages, and a bunch of interesting things.
This past weekend was a great one, I got to connect with some close friends :) and my trainer took some pics for my website and you can see a couple samples up here. So be sure to check back for the rest and see the new Dani. Also I will be updating the site soon, and have new material for everyone to enjoy, so come to my site and support me as I get ready for the new competition season. If anyone has any suggestions or anything feel free to e-mail me and make sure you come by the new web cam and set up an appointment with me via e-mail. Your times will be guaranteed once I confirm them and its through FigureRX cam ... it's awesome set up an appointment through me today.
I hope everyone's new year is great and filled with happiness ... stay in shape and in tune to your body, and live everything full of life this year!!

Team FigureRX is going really well, we have an incredible group of athletes on the team and I am helping to design our clothing so we will be *really* noticeable at the NPC national events next year!! We will probably be expanding the team early next year and we will be launching new areas of the web site over the holidays. I had my first journalism gig while in Palm Beach, interviewing all the pro athletes, and expect to be doing it again at the Kentucky Muscle Pro in a few weeks. Wow, we will get to see Elaine Goodlad on stage in Kentucky!! Make sure you check out the video of me interviewing the girls after finals in PB. I'm happy for everyone who placed well, I think all the competitors looked great, and the fitness routines were awesome. I give props to Hollie, after falling off the stage, and getting back up, she looked calm and poised and her routine was nailed to the "T." I loved Julie Lohre's routine and I really wish she had placed first but Palmer's routine was enjoyable and flawless as well.
As for figure, I knew Gina had it in the bag, she looked perfect, and not too much. I really think Paola looked her best ever! And she is the sweetest girl I know, good work girl! I can't wait to be on stage next to you again one day! You're the best! I'm so glad that you qualified for the Olympia like I knew that you would. I also want to give Heather Green a shout out because she held her own and really deserved a better placing in my eyes, she looked beautiful. Tivisay you are beautiful and what a debut, and Natalie and Claire great to meet you and what great packages you bring to the stage. Michelle we will be pulling hard for you in Sacramento. And Brandie, so great to see a fellow Tampa girl as emcee you looked stunning and you did a wonderful job. The top five girls all looked incredible, and so did the other figure athletes. I'm glad I was there to see it all.
My training is going well, and so is my dieting, and I'm glad to be ahead of the game for next year, no last minute prep, and will be back on stage in May looking better than ever.
To all my friends and fans, I am very happy and positive about what I will have going in the near future. My baby girl Layla says woof woof to everyone she has been a really good girl like always. I want to thank my Dad and my family for really being there for me over the past couple of months, I could not have come through everything that I have without your help and now things are better than ever!! Also my whole entire team especially Jamie and Allison and Stephen (pic below) for being patient with me as I battled my injury during the last half of this season, thanks for having faith and so much patience. There will be a new webcam launch on my site along with the chat area at FigureRX so be sure to check me out in both places. My fantasy football team has only one loss (hee hee) but this is a tough week with LaDanian not playing so root for my QB McNabb, my TB Bucs Joey Galloway and the new running back who replaced Cadillac and also the Patriots defense!! Yay! It was sad to see our home town USF Bulls lose but the run for the national championship was fun while it lasted.
Keep enjoying the weekend, go sign up for FigureRX and my web site so you can chat with me at both places and post in my back stage area!!
Love and hugs,

It has been a rough past couple of months, and I'm sure everyone has been wondering where I have been. It's tough to be missing the North Americans this weekend, it sucks I really love that show, but I tore my MCL recently. Good luck to all the girls who competed, especially my sisters in D-class, everyone looked great and obviously worked very hard.
I am in good spirits and I am dieting and training harder than ever now so I can get my butt back in top level gear. Plus I always feel better when I diet along with my hard training during the off-season. I don't expect to compete again until May 2008 but I am not really taking an off-season since this past year I wasn't 150%. :) However, with all the troubles that I have endured I have learned a lot and I'm very thankful for the people close to me who stood by my side and had my back. And thank you so much to my fans for your generous e-mails and love and support.
I have posted a few photos of me today with my little sister and brother, at my Dad's house, and my sponsors are putting a few new beach photos up on the FigureRX web site. If you haven't been to FigureRX.com please check it out, it is developing into what we hope will be the biggest figure and fitness portal on the web and they just completed some slam dunk coverage of the North Americans. You can also talk to me there on my personal backstage forum, just click on my name in the navigational bar on the left.
I will be starting web cam again next week (thanks James for leaving me up as the feature performer) so I hope to see all my friends and fans on there.
God bless and love always,

I am less than two weeks from my next show in Chicago!! The prep has been going well I'm focused in spite of a few distractions at home ... nothing that I can't overcome though. I have several huge shoots scheduled in Chicago including my first joint shoots with some of the other athletes of FigureRX.com. I can't wait for the show I am very excited!

I have wonderful people supporting me and I have a lot of people that I'm thankful for. First my family for loving me and caring so much about me. My trainer and sponsor/friend who have both helped me sooo incredibly much and stuck through my side through thick and thin. I am so blessed by God and I thank him everyday for surrounding me with such wonderful people and I pray that in this coming show I can make everyone proud especially my team.
There are a few things to bring up .... I had my first webcam at Figurecams.com last week and it was a big success, thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hello! And for all the diet and training questions that surprised me! I will be doing more webcams soon, both at Figurecams and FTVideo, with a couple of sessions next week so be sure to check my web site for the schedule and sign up, come and see me and talk to me! I'd love to see all my fans and talk, it's so much fun :).
And if you haven't seen it already, here is a little video that we put together showing me at the Junior USA's, both on stage and behind the scenes. It's a small sampler of several videos now available in my VIP area.

Things have been hectic since I returned from the Junior USA's super late on Monday night but I hope to update all of you soon. My puppers Layla got sick at the kennel while I was away, as she usually does because she misses me!! Things are almost back to normal after a little bit of a break, I spent a lot of time with family, but soon it will be back to intense preparation for Junior Nationals. I am going to come in with my signature hardness and conditioning in Chicago so get ready!! I have attached a photo from the Junior USA's so you can see my new one piece and my look at the show, it's blurry my trainer is excited to see me on stage and his hand shakes hee hee. I want to thank my trainer Nejim for his guidance for this show, he is truly the one who got me ready to step on stage at Juniors!! There are more professional pictures to come later and I welcome all of your comments by e-mail or on my VIP forum.
There will be a very special video update coming soon to my web site VIP area, behind the scenes at my last contest, I know you will enjoy it. If you haven't yet you can see some preview videos on YouTube just search for my name.
I appreciate all the people who e-mailed me after seeing my Bodybuilding.com profile last week, the response was tremendous and I will write back to as many of you as possible soon. You too Jessica Rabbit!! :) Bodybuilding.com has also selected me to be featured in the wallpaper section of their site so look for that soon.
The most important thing to say is that my web cam debut is finally scheduled for 9pm eastern time on Thursday, May 10th so if you want details please go to FigureCams.com and sign up (e-mail me if you have questions). I am very excited about the opportunity to chat with my fans worldwide who can't attend any of my shows or appearances!!

I had a crazy adventure last night, even though it scared me to death and it's a dog owner's worst nightmare. Well my Boxer she has a prissy mind of her own and she decided to jet out my front door and be a little sneaky girl and run over a mile away into the woods. I was crying, it was rainy and muddy and not to mention about midnight! So my roommate/trainer and I were searching for about an hour until we see a dog running happily down the road like she's clueless. It was a great feeling to see her even though she was a mess and covered in mud and dirt from the woods. Ugh what a disaster! But I'm so happy that my baby girl is at home next to my bed all snuggled up, and time for her to go to sleep. She did get a whittle pow pow though because she knows better!
Well, that's the adventure I had today, and it took a lot out of me especially cuz I am dieting ....
I hope to hear from all of you as the contest date gets closer! I answer my fan mail personally anytime that I can so please feel free to jot a line, ask a question, or just to say hola! Thank you for everyone's love and continued support and I hope to see some of you soon .... maybe at a show like the Arnold, or at the Ironman in Pasadena this upcoming weekend. Here are some recent workout photos from 2-3 weeks ago, I'm much tighter now so keep checking my Arnold prep journal for progress pics!!
Take care, love and prayers,

Hello everyone I hope you all enjoyed your New Year's celebrations and are on your way to following your New Year's resolutions. I hope that everyone's holidays brought you what you wanted! I had a lot of fun vacationing in Ohio with my fiancé's family, but since I've been home it has really been crunch time and doing two-a-days for cardio and that's on top of my weight training of course, but it's great. I'm sooo excited!!
I wanted to let everyone know how thankful I am for all of your love and support, and make sure you check my website often because I'm adding web cam soon and constantly adding new photos and video clips. Thank you to all my fans for your letters of encouragement and I'm grateful to have such loyal fans. So make sure you stay tuned, here are some pictures from recent updates on my site and with friends from over the holidays, and one extra that shows my silly personality on tanning day!! I hope everyone enjoys.

Happy Holidays Everyone! Just a quick note to let you know that a new profile on me has been featured at the French Canadian mega-bodybuilding and fitness portal Vinkomorf Magazine(see my links on the right). Quebec has some great fans and if everything goes as planned I hope to compete at the IFBB Montreal Pro Figure in September 2007!
Thanks to all of the new VIP Members to my site since we launched a few days ago, there is a lot more to come in the next few days including some really incredible vintage gym shots taken by Brian Moss of SheMuscle.com (sample posted). You can see the upcoming features on my VIP "Updates" page.

I have also recently been accepted to compete at the first ever Arnold Amateur Figure competition in Columbus on Friday, March 2nd. So start making your travel plans now and remember to get there earlier than usual, because figure will be fully completed that Friday (the link to the show is on my "News" page). A lot of great competitors will be there in figure tall but I am up to the challenge and it's going to be a great preview for the 2006 competition season!!
Finally, my VIP area is up and running so sign up and check out all my great photos and video clips and say hello and make requests at my new forum message board. I have attached a little photo preview of one of my recent updates. My personal training pages are up now too at DaniFitness.com. If you have any ideas or just want to say hello hit me by e-mail as usual at Dani@DanielleRouleau.com.
It's moving week down in Tampa before the holidays so wish me luck and I hope everyone has a great week, thank you for all your support!!

Ok everyone I feel it is my duty to warn you about birthday cakes purchased from large known coffee chains .... with the initials DD, ahem. Just *NOT* a good idea in general, I was sick for a few days, probably due to the eggs in the cake. Even my puppers got sick, and of course since you can't hide cake from me I found it the night before and ate some before I was supposed too hee hee!! So I got an extra day of food poisoning. But I'm feeling better now, and as usual I didn't miss a day of training I never do, and the improvements in the off season are progressing nicely.
I've also been answering a lot of interview questions for magazines so be sure to look for me in the major mags soon, of course you can track that on the news page of my web site as well. Some of the interview questions are pretty out there, like the one about three people in history who I would like to sit down and have dinner with. That's hard enough, but then it asks what I would want on the menu! Then you have to think about whether it's on season or off season, what time of day, carbing up or depleting, you know how it goes. But I am answering them all the best that I can and hopefully all my fans will see the results soon! Talk to you later!

Hi everyone, I am still on a high from my weekend birthday celebration, my fiancé took me to Flemings for dinner and Bern's for dessert. I have attached some birthday pictures, I hope that you enjoy!!
Things are really moving along with the web site now, a lot of design work was done last week and this weekend, and we'll soon be launching the a lot of new pages and the VIP members area too. I think all my fans will be pleased, and also I would like everyone to e-mail me at Dani@DanielleRouleau.com with requests or ideas of things you would like to see on my site. Yes that's you, the one reading this, even if it's like Dani can you do a pic or video clip of you doing squats or any exercise of your choice. Also send me any questions that you have regarding what you wanna see and I'll make a shout out to that great fan who does so ... I love all my dedicated fans that stay with me through this awesome journey!! :)
Along with the web site updates, training packages will be available soon and we'll also be running specials on 8x10 photos so look out for those coming up too in the next few days!! And the first photo set in the members area will be a great photo shoot I did a day after the North American Championships, I know that you will love them ... and check out my new free gallery from my latest show at http://www.daniellerouleau.com/06northamericans.htm and send comments I'll talk to you all soon!!!

Yesterday I got totally blasted by my trainer/fiancé in the gym, we trained so awesome that we were both aching from the pump we had in our shoulders. It was amazing. I went and got my nails and toes done yesterday too, and then I went shopping.
I have several pics that I've been trying to transfer to the computer but there's mega construction being done at my apartment building and the computers and TVs have been a hassle lately as well as getting woke up by people hammering and sawing and banging the loudest noises ever that wake me up toooo early and I need my beauty sleep. So until I get the new photos up here are a few from the Olympia Expo (click on them for larger versions). K I will write more over the weekend,

Whew I'm hurting today my quads are sore to the touch from the training we did on Monday, Nejim and I did extreme growing exercises and it is great being this sore. He he the next two days I'm going to need crutches! Today we worked chest and I benched 135 that's pretty good, I'm still taking things carefully but I will go heavier in the weeks to come. I have some pics of what's happening here in Tampa, will get those up soon .... I can't wait my birthday is this weekend yay!!! The big deuce deuce. For right now here's a preview photo from my Reg Bradford shoot, hope ya enjoy!!
Thursday, October 05, 2006
I've attached a couple of photos from the show in Cleveland, please write at Dani@DanielleRouleau.com and let me know what you think! I came in for the show at my lightest competition weight in a while, at 129 lbs. I'm a little heavier now hee hee, doing cardio only five times per week instead of twice per day seven days a week during contest prep. John Napliotis of WPW took some great shots of me in peak condition the day after the North Americans which I look forward to seeing, and I had a great shoot with Reg Bradford in South Jersey a few days later. Last weekend I spent three days in Las Vegas for the Olympia where I had a blast and I am about to head to the huge Club Industry Conference in Chicago for a few days as well. Whew!! But after that I'll be taking a few days off for my birthday, yay! I'll be 22 years old on October 14th.
Thankfully the off season allows for time to ramp up my online training and to add a lot to my web site, which I'll be doing along with my sponsors. We also have a lot of decisions to make for next year's season, as far as strategy, including whether or not to compete in the brand new Arnold amateur figure show. I'll definitely be in Charleston for the Junior USA's in the spring, planning to improve upon this years 3rd place finish (*two* points out of 2nd) so make your plans to come support me as soon as the date is announced!! I hope everyone will look forward to seeing some of the latest pics I did with some great photographers, come back and see!! Talk to you soon,

Here's another photo from the Laguna Beach shoot, I hope that you like it. As always click on the pics to see a larger version. On Sunday in Orange County I had photo shoots for several magazines, so look for me in the next few months .... one of my shoots was with Steve Wennerstrom (pictured) at World Gym. Finally I have included a shot of me with my friends at the IDS booth in Columbus (Jason's Nutrition Forum) earlier this month!
Hope everyone is doing well and I'll talk to you more soon!! :)
