Wonderful day




Hello everyone!! I have such a fabulous time yesterday! I didn't even have time to think about how hungry and dried out I was :) It seemed like after prejudging everyone went out to eat and got hamburgers etc....not me. I ate my chicken and asparagus and sipped my water. It worked too because I wasn't all bloated for the night show!

There were 9 girls total. 4 shorties and 5 talls. I got 2nd in the shorties and 2nd in the open class. I felt awesome all day long! My pooch was gone and my fat wasn't hanging over the sides of my suit which made me very happy. The T-walk was so much fun and my song was The Whistle Song and everyone loved it. Keisha who I knew would win if you've followed my blog ended up winning the whole Ms. Indiana Naturals title so that is who I got beat by and that makes me happy :) She has also been training for 13 years vs. my 9 months. I can't imagine where Tony will have me in 3 years when I can start competing in the masters division!!! So since Keisha can't win next year i'll do that one again so I can take the novice title :)

I was debating on another on Nov 17th but my husband said No you need a break :) My workouts from Tony the next couple of days are 35 mins walks. aaaahhhhh....I'm not going to know what to do!!!! This will be my last day for crap food though. I made Mike throw the rest of the M&M's away so I wouldn't eat them(sorry Stacey). This morning I made PB&J french toast mmmmmm........Now mom and I are going for frappiccino's! I'll get the small one though :) Tomorrow starts my "cleaner" eating program though. I know the fatties at work are bringing me in goodies so i'll try some in moderation. I just have to look at the rolls on their backs and remember why I don't eat like them. I didn't get to 107lbs. by eating donuts and bagels everyday.

That reminds me. Keisha ate at the ribfest a couple weekends ago and felt guilty and did an hour of cardio. I told her oh that's nice I've eaten nothing but chicken and asparagus for the past 2 months and do two hours of cardio plus everyday. Then at lunch she went and ate McDonald's!!!! Good thing she is super sweet or I would really hate her LOL!!!
