We’ll I did it! I got up onstage in a bikini just shy of my son Elias’ first birthday.
So .. is this the end of the road? No way! This is just a pit stop on my journey to a “better” woman, mother and athlete.
After all my story didn’t have a fairy tale ending, I didn’t place in the masters division of the Auckland Champs so this can not be the end of the road. At first I was upset, but after all the messages of support I have received, I realise how many people I have touched with my story and how I have inspired other Mums to go out and achieve all the things they want, but have been too “scared” to try. So for that I am proud.
I’m also determined .. determined to be bigger and better at my next outing .. I really don’t like loosing so this has given me yet another reason to get my butt into the gym and work not only harder, but smarter … so keep your eyes open .. because as Arnold said .. I will be back!
On the home front .. I’m going to take some time to put together all the programs that I have put on the back burner while I have been concentrating on getting ready for my first competition, so keep an eye out for those, because they are going to rock! (And hopefully give you a butt as hard as one) 😉
Till next time xox
