Being in the right mindset has always proven to be the best way to set up for success. I set my goal on being ready for Figure again in September for the IFPA Pro Global Cup in Suwanee, GA very close by!
In the meantime I continued to train and even test out my new plan for diet and exercises by entering a regional show in the bikini category. Mostly I wanted to know what the judges would think of me in bikini as opposed to figure. Hoping that knowledge would make an easier choice of class for future competitions. I was nervous about trying something new and unsure I'd be comfortable in the bikini class. As it turned out on July 28th at the Excelsior Classic I learned that I am a worthy bikini competitor when I took first place. I was surprised by how much fun it was to do the bikini presentation and by how well I looked and was received! The judges said my confidence and presentation was what put me ahead. The judges told me I was in great condition for bikini and that I could easily compete and place high in either figure or bikini given my shape and personality! Wow, I was on top of the world.

Now, a little more than 3 weeks away from my next show I am focused on following the plan my coach has designed for me. Placement in the top half of my class will qualify me for the Yorton Cup which I missed out on at my last pro show. Mission ripped & ready for stage in full effect!! On a personal note, I am now working full time at Vitamin World where I am an assistant manager where I get to help customers find supplements to help them get and stay healthy. I am also still teaching classes 3-5 times per week. It takes some serious scheduling and preparation but I am giving it my all. As always your support is appreciated and I invite you to come out and watch me in action, click the following link for show information.
Each time I prepare for a contest I feel an amazing sense of clarity around my choices in life. I feel so thankful to be taking care of myself, to be putting my health and family before all else. I have chosen to do work that allows me to take care of my health and fund my needs. I am glad to make the choices that bring me the most happiness and no longer willing to be controlled by the excuses I used to make, no time, not enough money and so on.
