A weekend of ups & downs

What a weekend!!!! Saturday was just a day of morning training, housework, wandering the waterfront, generally mucking round at home with a dash of sunbathing...

Sunday was INBA Queensland Titles day!!!!

Wow it was great to watch!!!

I took exactly 333 photos... of which all were absolutely no good!!! I didn't use the anti shake thingy on the camera, mostly because I didn't know about the anti shake thingy on the camera till it was too late...

But the smell of the tanning goo, the noise of the crowd, the muscles, oil and tiny itty bitty posing suits..... ahhhhhh just fabulous to look at .... and that was just the boys LOL

Tristan from ASN won the Intermediate class - Awesome result for a great guy!

Then I got to yell for Tiarna, Michaela, Tara, Kirstin... Hope you all heard me and Hubby!!! I loved it!!!! You all looked great up there and damn it you are all amazing to have even stepped on that damn stage and smiled!!!!!

I tried on the track suit top for the Olympia Australian Team.... The sizing is a bit weird but I can't wait to get mine now!!!

I had all my fingers and toes crossed that I would win the PT training scholarship that was given away on Sunday, but not this time.... rats...

Then it was time to head home and I fell apart!! I sooooo want to do the Olympia, we soooooo can not afford for me to do the Olympia..... No matter how we juggle the numbers it is a real stretch of the finances, but after once again toooooing and froooooing the whole of the 3 hours home and most of last night, I am still doing the Olympia and I have just spent tonight writing out sponsorship requests hoping to get enough help to scratch together an entry... Guess what will be in my grateful log tonight!!!!

I have had a new profile of me put on another website... check this out... Random Feats Of Strength... They asked me to go on it after the May comps and I have finally sent them the last of the photos... I was hoping to send em some new ones but had to go with the May comp photos in the end, hopefully I will be able to send through some October Comp ones soon...

Trained Chest and did my cardio this morning and by the end of it I was so tired I was crying, sniveled my way through breakfast. Got to work and managed to get through the day without becoming a blithering idiot, had a wonderful offer of help with the sponsorship letters from one of the bosses so I felt so much better by the time I got home.

Jumped straight into the old green bikini and practiced posing for an hour then went and trained abs... ok so after an hour of posing training abs was a mean and nasty thing to do to myself but what the hey only 26 days till showtime even if I have to walk there and back LOL

Well better go and organise the morning stuff....
