What a production. I'm pretty much in awe of how smoothly pre-judging went! Fitness routines went first, I was the third (of three) to preform. It went pretty well! 2 hours later we had finished both the one & two-piece judging and I was on my way back to Seattle to rest. I took about an hour long nap, and then I was bored, so I put my two piece back on and had Gene take pix. So, here they are. I'll take a LOT more tonight now that I know how everything goes, and will post them tomorrow! Since there are only three girls in my category, I get 1st, 2nd, or 3rd........ :)
It's really a bummer more girls don't try fitness!!!!!!!!!!! IT's soooo fun!
LOVE TO ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ohhhh my gosh. I am pooped. I've put in a full day and am ready to relax the rest of the evening. I got Jan Tana spray tanned at 1 & 5. Went shopping in between. Checked in after. Doesn't sound like a lot, but I'm soooooooo drained right now!!
Here's a pix after my first tanning. You can tell how white my face is and how dark my chest is. Well, I am even darker now! CRAZY! I'll update you after pre-judging since I'll come back and relax before the finals!
Much love to all. Thank you for following me in this "get buff" pursuit! I love keeping you updated & involved and thank you for your supportive words and encouragement!
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a FUN Pursuit!!!!!!!!!!! :-)

I'm going to post my before pictures to give you an idea of my progress. I say progress, and not "end result" because this absolutely is a work in progress and quite possibly always will be. I'm having sooooo much fun doing my own training, figuring out what works, what doesn't, true "trial & error" in the flesh, so to speak! :) So, here's the pix when I had this brilliant idea after watching Ms. Fitness USA in January, that, "hey, I could do that............."

And thus the journey began, well, not until May 6th. I'm not perfect. I've dealt with a chronic ankle injury that took me out of training two different times, I went on vacations, I indulged during weekends at the Lake, my inner thighs still touch, I have extra jiggle that won't budge off my triceps, and I'm still boxy through the waist, BUT MAN AM I HAVING FUN!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
