A full write-up with pics is coming… But I have the BNBF Final in just 6 days, so lots to do!
But I wanted to check in and let you all know…
Yesterday’s NPA South East was my second bodybuilding competition and, in a class of five, I won first place and got Best Presentation. I was genuinely shocked and surprised to win. I don’t think it has sunk in yet. It means so much to have been placed first by the judges in a class with four other competitors who all brought a great standard to the stage, had worked hard to get there and who continued to work hard as we posed and did our routines.
I was hoping just to place top three (I had a lot of family in the crowd and wanted to make it worth their while and thank them!) I could only dream of winning. So this result… has blown me away.
I will post a longer write-up when it’s sunk in and when I have some photos and videos for you.
And one of my trophies which I took last night when we got home. (As an aside, I’ve always wanted a cup – I said, if I got one, I’d eat my breakfast out of it. It will be a while yet before oats are back on my breakfast menu but you can sure that photo is coming!)
Thank you all so much for watching, reading and supporting.
