All of my ex-husband's daughters were in the same place today (my house) so I snapped some photos. The 6 yr old is hard to catch LOL
The announcement about the winner is May 4th.
The contest has been majorly discouraging for me. I haven't lost weight. I have gotten stronger, I have gotten more flexible, I have gotten sick (I just got over the worst flu I can ever remember having), I have made new goals.
There is a really good chance that I am not going to win. However, I will finish. I will continue training, because I found a love of power lifting during this contest. I love the feeling of being able to lift a heavier barbell almost every other time I go to the gym (I was up to lifting 3 sets of 8 reps of 155# before I got sick). My balance has improved, my mood for the most part has been better (even with work throwing some major stressors at me the last couple of months). There are a lot of positives that have come out of this contest. Just not all the ones that everyone expected, so it is hard not to let their disappointment get me down.
However. I will press on.
Sorry I haven't been giving better updates. I am having a hard time looking at the positive some days. . .
