Wow, has it really been over 3 months since I posted here? Life gets BUSY! So this is also just a very quick update.
I didn't place at my competition on 9/11, but that's okay. I got up there and I DID IT! I was very happy to just follow through with it and am proud of myself for doing it.
I ended up doing another competition on Oct 4th I think it was - basically it was 3 weeks after the Sept comp. I did get to walk away with a trophy from that one! But even if I hadn't I still would have enjoyed the whole process. I loved it. I had a great time with the other girls who were competing. It didn't even feel like we were going up against each other- at least to me it didn't. I was going up against myself.
This year I'm looking at 3 comps - june, july & oct. I'm sure I can bring an even better body to the stage this year. As long as I don't win LOL. I don't want to have to keep moving up the competition chain. I like the idea of just doing these local comps to keep me in shape. Not interested in traveling all over trying to go pro.
So that's where I'm at. I'm currently about 10 pounds above my competition weight - that was the fault of the holidays LOL. By the end of Jan I hope to be just around 5 pounds over. More if I can add some muscle to this stubborn body. I'd like to not have my ribs stick out so much. For my Oct comp I came in a pound heavier and I felt I looked more healthy. So I'm looking to gain a little so that when I lean out I don't have to go so low.
Here's a pic from the Oct show, standing next to my trophy :)
