All the training...
112 days of prep= ~8,960 min of cardio
~13,440 min of weightlifting ~672 meals
~125 gallons of water
~1,120 min of posing practice
Consistency. Hard work. Discipline.
Peak week was fantastic...
I loved it all, the meal prep, the hard work, the rest, the tanning, and most all the workouts!
I got to shoot with my fav photographer this week, wanting to capture all the hard work and turning 41 of course :) Did a run through with Chasity Hair by Design on Hair & Makeup as well.
Day of Check-In at the OCB Battle on the Beach
Overall energy levels stayed good when Thursday hit it was the last cardio session and workouts were over, now time to rest!

And I even had time to capture another sunset from our dock.

Placing 3rd in Master's and 4th Overall Novice Open
What an amazing experience and really glad I chose to do OCB for my 1st show, I honestly loved every minute of it and sad to see it all come to an end.
Judges critiques to come in leaner next time and add more sass to my stage presence.
Now into reverse dieting and start working towards my first full season starting June 2019 :)

Thanks for following along... I will still be updating you weekly to show my transition. I have found the sport I have been searching for since my tennis career ended due to Rheumatoid Arthritis 20 years ago. I'm excited to share this journey with you, just remember it's never too late to chase a dream!
