How It All Started

For years I've been subscribing to Oxygen Magazine- I've always loved working out and have been interesting by physique competitions, but never did I think I'd ever be one of those competitors. Last winter I started working out with a trainer that is an athlete in the Fitness Division, who ultimately introduced me to the realization that I could be one of those tanned and toned women if that is what I wanted to do. She made me realize that competing wasn't as daunting as I had made it in my mind. Of course there was a lot of work to be done, dedication and sacrifice- but we were taking baby steps.

My first was a small local NPC show where I competed in the Bikini Division. I am grateful for making my debut in a comfortable sized event and for all of the support I felt on the day of the show from all of the fabulous girls I train with and of course my rockstar trainer. I can't believe that day was over six weeks ago...... not to mention twenty pounds ago! Which brings me to today- the first day of the second time around.

I invite you to follow my journey to get back into dieting/training for my second NPC Bikini Competition- stay tuned...
