To Do, Or Not To Do

I’m so excited!!  After grappling over vibrant fabric samples with cool textures, trying to figure out which color will look best against my tanned brown skin on stage, I finally decided.

I did it!!  There is NO turning back.

I ordered my suit for May’s competition!

Climbing out of bed daily with knotted up muscles and over indulging in poultry seven days a week at times has made training feel surreal, but putting a deposit on my suit has snapped me right out of my dream.  It’s the real deal.

With seven weeks out, the intensity is rising.

On Saturday I attended a local ANBF Bodybuilding competition, which was helpful.  I know how my body should look, feel, and flow on the stage.  The images are permanently stamped in my mind.

Taking on this challenge was the right move for me. You know, life is just too darn short to sit around slighting yourself.  I can’t do this… because.. blah…blah…blah…

I chose to do.  What about you?

Sweet dreams!

Prepping For My New Challenge

Meet Stan!

Life is precious and it is short.  The thought of aging and having to sit and ponder over the  What ifs  in my life just doesn’t sit well with me.

Meet my new best friend, Stan.  I’m embarking on a new personal and physical challenge that will require me to rely heavily on him.

I am terrified, but cannot resist this challenge. My heart races and goose bumps cover my body every time I think about it, but I refuse to run away or hide.  My mind and my heart screams, “Go for it!”  So I am.  Stayed tuned!

Enjoy this beautiful fall day!


Saturday’s Challenge

 

Instead of posting my WOD, I am mentally preparing for a personal challenge tomorrow….

Walking this!!  Walking this is a challenge because I have a fear of heights.

The Ocean City bridge is over 2 miles (one way).

Ocean City, NJ Bridge

After this post, I promised myself that I will not look at this picture again until I have crossed the bridge tomorrow morning.

I am drawing inspiration from the wonderful quotes that I found on Pinterest.
