After seeing the results I got from the first bikini challenge I knew I would do the next one. I loved the process of seeing how my body changed week to week. Being over 40 with 3 kids and starting a new business I could easily use that as an excuse to gain weight (which I did for a while!) I lost 22 lbs with the first bikini challenge so my goal this time was to increase my workouts, lift a little heavier and go into the competition more defined.
Again I was amazed with the results! About 2 weeks before the competition I decided to enter the “real” competition. I worked so hard I figured I should at least try it once. I stepped on stage with the fitness asylum on Nov. 8th and also as a competitor in masters bikini and open bikini. After placing in both classes I decided to enter another competition the next weekend! I’ve got to say I was nervous when I saw the competition but again placed in masters and open. I guess you could say I was hooked!
I love sharing the experience with all the other girls in the bikini challenge and seeing how proud and happy they are on competition day when they are getting ready to step on stage in their bikinis with their hair and makeup done! What fun! For some it will be a once in a lifetime event but for others it will be the start of something new!
My next competition I will be 48 years old but age is just a number! People have asked me if its hard. Anything worth having is not easy but I wouldn’t call it hard. Once you put your mind to it and decide to push yourself harder than you ever have you will be amazed at the results. If you are even thinking about doing the bikini challenge I would say to just do it and give it your all. It’s 12 weeks that could change your life!
