10 Days Out to My First Bikini Competition

I'm officially into Peak Week for my first bikini competition.  I know I'm crazy.

So who am I? I'm a 40 year old, wife, and mother of 2 (IT is 10 and ET is 7). I started taking kickboxing 2 years ago when we moved back to Virginia from short stay in South Carolina. About a year ago, I started teaching a few kickboxing classes and really loved it.  But I'm a person who needs to work towards something.  Enter a high school classmate, who started preparing for this type of competition and the seed was planted.

I spent about a year deciding if this was something I really wanted to do.  I wasn't your high school cheerleader, one of the popular kids, or even someone considered "cute".  I was a red headed, rule follower, who can't dance.

This competition is for me.  It is to prove to myself that I can do something totally out of my wheelhouse.  So here I am 10 days out with faint ab lines.  I'm ready to take on those other women who are out to prove something to themselves also.

It is my new found love of lifting that started this blog.  Enter Living, Loving, Lifting!  I can't wait to see where the next 10 days will take me!



  • I love your description of yourself in high school! Best of luck to you!!

  • That is super inspirational! I wish you all the best in meeting your fitness challenges!
