I have to start off by saying I had one of the most rewarding weekends of my life. I set a goal for myself in December to compete this year in my first NPC Bikini competition and this weekend – I lived out that goal.
After 4 months of intense training – I entered the NPC Grand Prix Natural in Rockford, IL. There were over 200 competitors in several divisions, bodybuilding, figure, and bikini just to name a few.
60 girls entered bikini (30 in short class – up to 5’4, 30 in tall class – 5’4 and up) and 5 girls placed in each division. While I didn’t place, I learned so much about myself along the way, how unbreakable my drive is, how great it feels to be committed to my healthy lifestyle, and I also met some awesome new people.
I am absolutely going to be competing again this Fall and I’ll post more soon about bikini competing, my workouts, etc. for any of those who are interested.
Here are a few pictures from the weekend and thanks again for all of my friends and family who have supported me over the last 4 months!
