My first fitness show! Pics, Pics, Pics!

Wednesday, November 02, 2011

I did it! I competed in my first fitness show! The journey itself was amazing and enlightening and challenging and the show itself was so much fun! I can't wait until the next one. This one was small, there was only one other girl in my class, so I placed 2nd. But hey, I got a trophy!

The training and nutrition for the show is very intense, but I need a strict plan to keep me in line, so it worked for me. I had to track all my food everyday and my workouts were almost always pushed to the limit. But it works! I cannot believe the results I got!

So now, what you have all been waiting!

Here I am at the beginning of all this, until now!

August 2010, 170 lbs and 35% body fat to Oct 29th, 2011, 129 lbs, 17 % body fat

On stage!

With my trophy!

Holy crap! I actually have abs!

So that is what I have been up to! And that is why I haven't been around much. Also, I have tried to blog a few times and Spark always crashes and I lose it all, so I eventually gave up and stopped trying to post. So I have been writing this one in Word and transferring it over. And I'm glad I did! Spark crashed on me twice while writing this, so I consider it an accomplishment that you are even seeing these pictures at all!

Enjoy! And hopefully I can get more info up soon about my show, but for now I think this is good!

I'm curious, what's your plan after this? I think I'd feel kind of lost.
