I’ve been part of the FitnesAsylum for a little over a year. I love the boot camps and nutrition program. Last November I was nominated Sexy Bitch. I was surprised and excited about this! As Bonnie made the announcement, she said she had heard I was thinking about bikini. She was right. I was asking lots of questions. I wanted to see if I was up for the challenge. I just didn’t know if I could be dedicated enough to follow through, but I was interested to see if I could do it!

Bonnie gave me the push I needed , and soon after I signed up. The kickoff was nerve racking. So much info! I questioned my desicion.

In the begging the diet wasn’t hard. We had a long prep time that incorporated some cheat meals. I was afraid to cheat so I stuck with it. Temptation was always there, but I kept my eye on the goal!

As the weeks past, our workouts and cardio increased. Some days it was hard to motivate. Some workouts were subpar, but I pushed through. The online support, and support of the other competitors kept me focused.

As the date neared, the emotions were intense. I felt nervous, anxious, and excited. My body changed rapidly. I started seeing muscle definition I never thought possible. Bonnie always said, “trust the process.” Sometimes, the nurse in me tried to overthink, but I kept with the program.

Finally, stage day was here!!!! The night before, I feel like I didn’t sleep a wink. I was overjoyed with excitement. I’ve never felt more beautiful and strong in my life. This was something I never thought I could do. I feel so accomplished. I look back at my photos and smile. I did it!

I’ve gained some wonderful friendships. I am truly blessed to have shared this experience with some of the most amazing women I know. Whether you’re in your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s or 60’s, you can do this. I can’t wait for fall! Thank to Bonnie for being an amazing coach!
