HELLO from the BEACH!

I am having a WONDERFUL time with my family on the beach. I had planned to give you a big report while I was on vacation but I am just going to do it when I return so that I can focus on my family vacation for now.

I did post that new picture at the top of my blog this was me at the hotel between the pre-judging and the night show. I realize it is a BIG picture. I will have to mess with the size when I get back to my home computer instead of this slower laptop I am on.
FYI - On the morning of the competition after water/sodium deplete I weighed in at a very small 124.8!!! I could not believe it. To be at that for just a day was very cool. As of this past Friday, June 18th I weighed in just to see what I was at and I was at 132.4. Which I was very pleased with. Obviously, I knew I would not stay in the 120's and I am completely fine with that. Just trying to enjoy my vacation for now with a few treats but not go overboard. If I can stay under 140 through my vacation then try to settle in around 135 I think that is what I am hoping to do. Time will tell though. I have exercised 6 out of the 8 days that I have been on vacation though and I am SO PROUD of that. Frankly, I am in such the habit of exercising 5-7 days a week and I feel so much better when I do and I do not want to get out of the habit. I have been sleeping in until 6:45 and working out from 7-8 and can enjoy the rest of my day with my family while still getting my "me time" that my body and mind love.

Here are a few other pics too:

Here I am before my first layer of tan. The tan was WICKED DARK!! It was just so crazy how dark it was. I liked it though b/c it was so out of the norm.

I am getting my make up done Saturday morning around 5:30 AM by Corinne.

This is me and my dear friend, Joni, that did the bikini comp with me. She is with Phit-N-Phat also. This was at the competitors meeting before the pre-judging started on Saturday morning at 9.

Backstage before the pre-judging.
