Contest Shots and Solid Results

So the score cards came out and I most definitely placed 6th. That's really cool! I had some 5's in there too which gave me hope that some of the judges realized I had the potential to be in the Top 5. :) I pretty much ate my face off the past week down at my boyfriend's family's house and gained several, 6 or 7. Haha. But that's okay. I'm at a normal weight now--135-136 pounds and I'm back at around 1750 cal for the next 12 days. I leave for Vancouver, Canada with my Dads that day and I know that I won't be able to keep a solid diet while on vacation. I'm hoping to get back down to around 132/133 pounds and stay there, so I'm (OH MY GOSH) going to do a bit of cardio this week. I've attached some professional shots from the show. Enjoy!

Results Post #1

Let's get the point: I got first call-outs! But I placed 6th out of 12. The Top 5 had competed before, and they all had more muscle than I did coming in. I also had a natural chest/no padding. Whatever! They still had WAY better bodies than much more hard work. I can only aspire to put in that much time and effort. They called out the first 5 and then asked me to join the line up for the first round of comparisons. I was just amazed that I got to be out there in first call outs with those amazingly shredded ladies. I'm really really proud of the progress I made and the fact that I got top half my very first show ever! I brought the best package I could have possibly brought and though those last couple days with no water, minimal food choices, and no sodium were pretty much KILLING me, I was so overjoyed that I did as well as I did (all I wanted was to not place last!). I will update more once I get my professional shots / score sheets. Enjoy this for now.
