If you are wondering, I did not place in the top 5. In fact, I didn't place very well at all. I would be lying to say that it was not dissappointing to me but as one of my close teammates pointed out "that's not why we do this though, Jenn" - and it's true at this point in my journey. I have a lot to learn about presenting on stage before I can expect to reach a top spot and for now, my focus is on learning about myself and taking my physique to a place it's never been before.
That leads me to where I stand right now. I am a bikini competitor and I intend to stay in this class because I feel it's where my physique most fits in, however, I think even in bikini, I would do better with more muscle. So I am in the first week of a building phase. Read: eat food and lift heavy. Sounds awesome right? It is, it's actually my ideal situation.
But lifting heavy is making me super tired so I am off to bed so these muscles can grow!
