Flyin High!

Woooooohoooooo! There will be a longer post, with more details and pics, but here's a quick update before I fall face first into bed :-)

I took 4th in BOTH my classes! Figure Novice and Figure Junior Masters (35+). There were 9 competitors in my novice group, and I can't remember how many in Jr Masters. I came home with Hardware!!!! Two trophies!!!

My family and friends were loud and awesome :-) When they brought us out for the presentations at the end, the MC called me a 'crowd favorite'. How freakin cool is that???

There's so much to share, and I will :-)  but for now...
My first treat was a Tammie Coe cookie and a Godiva truffle, then WATER!!! LOL!  After the evening show, we headed to Mimi's (open late, haha), and I had a bbq bacon cheeseburger and fries. YUM. Oh, and lemon poppyseed bread :-)    Back home, I've showered, started on a glass of wine and another Tammie Coe cookie, and I'm ready for bed, then Mexico tomorrow. Here are a couple pics until I have time to post more...

  3. I started reading your blog about a week before you decided to compete, and I've been reading faithfully since then. I have never known anyone personally who has lost a lot of weight and kept it off. I myself have about 50 lbs. to lose. Reading about your ups and downs, what you eat each day, how you plan and prepare, has made a big difference in my life. Now I have someone to look up to who has already done it, and I know now that I can do it too!
    You are amazing, Chelle!!!Have a wonderful time in Mexico! You surely deserve it!

  30. OK.... I know you've avoided posting it, but I'm curious to know what was your weight on competition day and how tall are you?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hi Lori! Lol! Yes, but only because each body is unique, and carries muscle & fat & water differently. I came in at 111.6 on show day and I'm 5'2". For my next show, I hope to come in a few pounds heavier (more muscle). :-)
