FIGURING OUT THE FIFTIES.... SO THIS IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT.......

The BEST present EVER....

This afternoon the count of Bribie (and very close neighbourhoods) women who would have or will be competing in Figure or Bikini Model in 2010 rose to SEVEN!

Now you have to remember that the total permanent resident population of this little island is approximately 18,0000. Also to be noted is the fact that in the last Australian Government Survey, Bribie Island had the oldest average population of the whole of Australian with a mean average age of 65....
From that population seven women (so far) with ages that range from 21 to 50 will be competing in the 2010 bodybuilding competitions...
I think that is a pretty damn awesome number and also every one of them is seeing Kelli Johnson, again something that I think is pretty damn awesome and goes to show that Kelli definitely knows her stuff and is a fabulous person to deal with.
On top of all that five of us all train at Bribie Physically Fit which is one very small and unsophisticated gym with a very limited number of cardio machines, free weights or weight training machines...
Which goes to show that you don't need a gym with a quizillion cardio machines, 27 leg press machines and two saunas to get into shape!

I also like to think that I had a teeny tiny bit to do with all these fabulous women taking the step into competition... after all if a Nana can go from this.....to this...

with the help of Kelli and Bribies Physically fit gym... anyone can!
To me the fact that I may have had something to do with these women choosing such an amazing lifestyle is worth more than any amount of money or stuff you could buy. This is the one thing that makes it worth all the sweat, and sometimes tears (although Hubby doesn't cry as much as he used LOL!!)
I can't wait to share the stage and the back stage areas with all these women!!! I am counting sleeps till I can see Julie on stage at the INBA Brisbane Titles and the ANB Asia-Pacific, I am so excited for her!!!!!
I know she that at the moment with the dieting and the constant cardio she will kill me for even thinking about it, but I hope she will be competing against me in October even though she is just a young 40 year old, hmmm maybe I should work on the IFBB to bring in a Grandmasters age group so I don't have to compete against all these perky young things LOL

But wait.....
SEVEN!!!!!!
Oh My God, there will be seven carb depleted females rampaging around on Bribie in September!!! Hell it will stop being the oldest population base and become the meanest, nastiest population LOL It will probably also become the most dangerous place for anyone to carry a slice of banana bread in Australia...
I can see the headlines now.....
Man attacked while buying Banana Bread
An elderly man was today attacked for a loaf of banana bread he purchased from a Supermarket on Bribie Island. Police are currently seeking seven over tanned, but incredibly muscular taught and toned woman who were seen fleeing the scene in hooker heels and crystal laden bikinis. The public are advised not to approach these woman under any circumstances. Police have admitted to setting large cage type traps baited with McDonalds Banana Bread and Fruit Toast to try and lure these women from their normal habitat of gymnasiums and treadmills......
