Total Transformation

Sunday, November 03, 2013

So, last month I entered our gym's Transformation Challenge competition. 30 day fitness challenge culminating in our little body building contest at the end.

Last night was the contest, and guess who won???

Yeah, it would be cruel if it wasn't me. I'm not that cruel. 1st out of 4 women.

To illustrate the full journey of my physical transformation, from starting with a trainer to lose weight all the way to last night, a picture!

During the last week (and actually starting last year), I've had various people either believe I'm a competitive bodybuilder, or tell me I should be. Over the past few days, the people I know who actually compete were telling me I should enter a physique competition.

It's sooo outside my usual life - onstage, showing off, fancy hair and makeup and clothes, fake tans, no one trying to beat me up, no one to beat up.

Oh, and stage fright. I do have that. I have clearly no problem with showing off my body, but I do have a problem with anxiety about what I should be doing onstage, how I'm moving, every mistake, etc.

It was a fun experience though, and the fact that I won actually makes it the FIRST THING I HAVE EVER WON!

Yes, my first legitimate win in my entire life. And it's in something I never imagined I'd do.

If only it were a fight. Ah well, back to my goals.

    Xin, I am curious how much you think you spent total on your fitness since you started. I think if you added that, and the time spent to your infographic, (i.e. considering when you got up in the morning to work out twice a day, etc) it'd be a much more honest picture of what went into your transformation. You have sacrificed greatly and the picture alone doesn't reflect that.

    Congratulations! You have a very natural, comfortable look like you've been competing and winning for some time.

    Oh, and Bill said he'd step up and let you beat him up.

    I assume you dropped the circuit training/cardio bullsh1t and picked up some weights?
