Happy February! I hope all of you are sticking to those goals you set forth for yourselves at the beginning of the year. If not, it’s never too late to jump back on the wagon!! This week, I want to share with all of you my experience of training for my first fitness show. “Fitness Show?”, you ask….Yes! A fitness show is pretty much a body-building/physique competition. The competition includes men and women of all ages. I decided to blog about this because I wanted to show all of you that even though you are a busy mom, who may also work, and be over the age of 35 (like me), you too can achieve great things in your body if you set your mind to it!!!
Last summer, I was looking for something to challenge me physically. I was getting bored at the gym doing the same thing….I needed a goal, a challenge. My friend at the gym encouraged me to train with her, so I began training 14 weeks out from my first show (October 30, 2010). I met with a trainer who set up my menu plan, and got me started on my first 4 weeks of workouts. Before I began, I made sure I had the support of my family (because without them on board, it would have been way more difficult!!) I told myself that I can do anything in 14 weeks!! So my journey began…..
