Sorry for the delay in my post. We started our vacation a day early and we have not had internet. I am in the parking lot of a McD's at the moment posting this.
I don't have pics to share at the moment. I will though hopefully later this week when I download them and come back to McD's.
Just wanted to tell you that the competition was AWESOME!! It was an amazing life experience that I am so thankful that I did.
I have a new respect for those competitors. I obviously got a taste of what it is like to dedicate yourself to such a goal but it is a completely other thing to get out there on that stage with confidence. I was SCARED TO DEATH!! I had no idea I would be that scared and honestly I am glad I didn't realize it until I was already on the stage. My heart was about to beat out of my chest and my legs were totally shaking from the anxiety. I think I managed to smile and my friends said they couldn't tell I was that nervous. I think they were just being kind though.
I have a lot more to share about it but just wanted to start with that. I will have to go in more detail after my vacation which lasts a while longer so it will be another week and half or so before I share more. I have SO MANY people to thank also. I did not accomplish this goal alone that is for sure.
A major plus was that there were 5 people in the bikini short class that I was in so all 5 of us got trophys so I walked away with a 5th place trophy to always remember the moment and my accomplishment.
ok, that is it for now I could type for hours sharing everything but my family is ready to leave the McD's parking lot.
Thanks again for all of the well wishes. Can't wait to share the pics with you of my experience.
