Like a lot of people, I saw so many impressive transformations with the Bikini Challenge, that I had been intrigued by it for some time. But I always said that I could never do that! I did several challenges with The Fitness Asylum and still found myself tempted by Bikini. After a lot of debating with myself, I finally made the leap and signed up. I questioned my decision every day leading up to the Kick-off. But after that first day, I jumped in and was determined to complete this challenge as best as I possibly could! This challenge was one of the hardest things that I have ever done. You have to be motivated every single day. I was always encouraged by the team and the support of the group and my coach Ellen. Yes there were times that I thought about giving up or that I would go on stage the next time, but these are all feelings that I worked through until show day.
I will never forget how I felt on the day of the show. It was such a mix of emotions that I have never had before! I was terrified to get on that stage, but it was such a feeling of accomplishment afterwards!! For a change, the day was about me. My husband and many of my friends made the time to be there and they all were so very proud of me! Everyone was saying all day how beautiful I looked and I believed them. It was such a great feeling and so much fun taking pictures with them and my teammates!
So, if you’ve been thinking about doing Bikini and feeling that temptation like I was, I would say to do it!! You won’t regret it and you will never be more proud of yourself than when you complete this challenge!!
