Next stop – British Finals!

Just a quick update after yesterday’s BNBF Midlands qualifier (in case anyone reading this hasn’t already heard from me via FB, Twitter, instagram etcetcetc πŸ˜‰ )

I placed 2nd in our class of five, and got my invitation to the BNBF British Finals in September! Mission accomplished! Phew and hooray πŸ˜€

I was pleased with the improvements I’d made since the competition two weeks ago when I failed to place and didn’t qualify, and I got some great feedback from judges and spectators.

I now have six weeks to train and diet for the British, where I plan on bringing in my very best condition (so far!) Together with coach Vicky and her plans and guidance, I feel I’m on track to be in my best shape.

I’ll get the official photos in due course but for now here are some to be getting on with:

Look, Ma! I’m in the middle of the call-out! (I was then moved along one, but, still πŸ˜‰ )

Top three (3rd, 1st, 2nd – me)

I was selected for a random drug test (the BNBF is a natural bodybuilding federation)

    Congrats!! What do you think was the difference in your appearance between the 2 shows? Obviously these things are super subjective – did you think you were judged to harshly at your first show, or was there quite a significant difference between the two? Very excited for you, would be interested in knowing your thoughts! Congrats again πŸ™‚

      Thanks Rachel! Feedback from Centrals was that I needed to be leaner – so I came in leaner (as much difference as you can make in two weeks anyway) and it seems it was significant enough.

      Now leaner still for Finals πŸ˜‰

      Cheers!
