So, what's next? If you know me, my motto is always "on to the next thing"......I can't help it, my mind is always going......and the next thing is competing in fitness!!! I am so excited that it keeps me awake at night thinking about it. The great thing about this sport is that the journey is the exciting part and the part I'm in love with......picking out the glittery suits, accessorizing like crazy, strutting around in the heels, and of course, KILLING it in the gym! Stepping on stage is just an excuse to get to do all of those fun things! Added to my "to do" list for next year's show prep as a fitness competitor now includes: picking out music to be mixed, learning a routine, getting the strength moves perfected, finding a fabulous costumes, and conquering the splits! Holy smokes, I LOVE IT ALL!
I've found that as I get older and more comfortable in my own skin that working out just to look good becomes less and less important. What I've loved seeing instead is an increase in my strength, symmetry, flexibility and most importantly, self confidence. I feel that working toward my fitness goal is just the tweak I need to stay motivated and focused on improving. Plus, with all of that training, the tight body will come naturally!
I will do my best to keep you posted on my journey. No doubt, I have my work cut out for me, but another thing I've gained through this sport is that I'm so much less afraid to fail. When I started out, I wouldn't even admit to anyone that I was competing or training for fear that they'd find out how terribly I did at my show. People's reaction was quite the opposite---very few people cared how I placed, they were just totally impressed that I'd ever be that dedicated to something, much less get on stage in a bikini and heels! By announcing my goals and aspirations, it holds me accountable to seeing them through. So, you've heard it here: I WILL be a fitness competitor one day soon!:)
