OK, so I lied...
Well not really lied, but more like changed my mind. When I started this whole journey of getting my pre-baby body back I set goals for myself. First was the KB competition, then was my photo shoot and finally, my two bikini comps. My intentions were to do the two bikini comps and then move on. I honestly didn't think I would like it. I am not one for wanting attention on me, especially in a bikini. But after my second competition, the Europa Games, last week...I really want to do another one!
So what made me change my mind? For one, I was so much more prepared for this one. Even though it was only 4 weeks after my first comp, I felt so much more prepared and confident. I knew what to expect (although every comp is different) and I looked the best I ever have! Also, for my first comp I placed last, 16th out of 16 women. This one....13th out of 16 women. Not a huge jump, but for me this felt awesome! I took this week to really think about what I wanted to do. What my next goals were going to be. Remember, for me it all leads right back to goals and having an end date. I HAVE to have an end date or I get bored and I will fail.
While I was contemplating my new goals I looked back at some of my pics from the Europa.
Here is me and my partner in crime Kristy...
Here is me on stage...workin' it ;)
So now what??
Well I have decided that I am going to do another comp in September. This is going to give me enough time to work on areas I feel need to be improved. But that is not the only goal I have. I want to place in the top 10 for my next comp. I am not a competitive person, but something has awoken that part of me and I'm running with it! I'm still not looking to get my Pro Card, as cool as that would be, just want to possibly make it more than a hobby.
