The Results Are In...

4TH PLACE!!!

WOW!!!

After Friday's terrible show day I was shocked to make it to the Top 5... BUT I prevailed.

With your words of encouragement I rocked the stage this morning. My energy was through the roof and I actually had a lot of fun.

I am really happy with my placement, but it just goes to show you the amount of variety there is between competitions. I am tighter than I was at my first competition in September, and I placed one spot lower.

Thank you all for your support.It was wonderful knowing you were all behind during each step and turn and flex.

BUT I am happily retiring my competition suits, and taking a few days off.

Enjoy the photos below:

9. The post-show chicken penne I noshed on.... YEAH CARBS!!!!!

Congrats, Tosca, I hope you enjoyed it. I enjoy checking in on your blogs weekly. Keep up the good work, and just for the record, I think you should've got the first place. Congrats to the girl that did though.

Love you and I only wish to look half as good.

Congrats congrats congrats!!!!!! You are super woman!!!

On a side note, I saw that you were doing a clean eating for men that is due out in the Spring...have you given any thought to something like 'eat clean for pregnancy'? Just a random thought.

Congrats again on your success!!!! And..enjoy your down time!
