I am so excited to share with you my sentiments & proud accomplishment of competing in my first bikini international and taking home the 4th place spot! All my fellow competitors looked beautiful and brought their best package to the stage… I would like to congratulate all the figure, fitness and bikini girls.
My prep for this show, was NOT easy… as I competed in 7 shows in 2012, with only 2 months off to mentally and physically get ready for the Arnold. I believe everyone was sick with the flu, me included. That definitely dampened my diet and exercise regiment. By February 2013, I was able to regain my strength and motivation back to rock the stage. Becoming conditioned on time was my hardest challenge, besides FOOD!
The greatest lesson I learned this past year, competing as a pro is… Rest is as important as putting in the work to reach my goals.
I want to thank HardBodyNews.com for letting me share my journey to the Bikini International and thanks to all of YOU for reading!
Until next time, train hard and Rock ON!
