CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES!!!

In honor of the successful weekend at the 2012 SC STATE BODYBUILDING CHAMPIONSHIPS, Hollywood & I continued our Celebration over a FABULOUS dinner at Larkin’s On The River in Downtown Greenville, SC.

CRAZY GOOD COMPETITION!!!

The ONLY Expectation I had headin down to COLA was GOOD FUN TIMES with GREAT TEAMMATES…but WOW!!! it ended up Delivering SO MUCH  MORE!! ;o)

First of all, my parents ended up being able to attend the ENTIRE event!! (Initially they were only going to be able to attend the evening portion) I was SO THRILLED to have them there to experience the whole competition and to meet more of my Amazing Dream Team Family of Teammates!!

Second of all, the fact that I was going into this competition even TIGHTER than Jr USAs two weeks earlier was an excellent feeling!

Third – the Pre-Competition Fuel supplied by Pawley’s Front Porch….Cool Burger Joint that’s been featured on one of my Favorite Food Network shows – Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives!! HUGE THANKS to Hollywood’s MAN for findin the place!!

Finally……the OVERALL OUTCOME was FANTASTIC!!!!!

THE RESULTS….

Ashleigh “Hollywood” Allison scored 1st Place to win her Bikini Class & went on win the OVERALL….Crowned the NEW 2012 SC STATE CHAMPION!!!

Laura “French Fry” Foster also scored 1st Place to win her Figure Class & she too went on to win the OVERALL…Crowned the NEW 2012 SC STATE CHAMPION!!!

Shauna “Smilin'” Robinson got 2nd Call Outs and Graced the stage with her beautiful smile and physique! ;o)

After having performed our individual evening routines, I stood next to my competition on the diagonal filled with excitement and anticipation as the Judges announced the 1st Place winner of the 2012 SC STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS Women’s Lightweight Bodybuilding Class – AMY SUTTER!!!!

Words aren’t enough to express the SHEER JOY of that moment!!

Winning my Class secured my spot in the POSE DOWN against the 1st Place Heavyweight Class Winner!

I tried to play things up by tryin to “Crowd” her out and did my best to show the Judges how BADLY I wanted to win the Overall to score that Championship Ring!! The Judges deliberated for a pretty long time, but she was a good 25+ pounds heavier than me and ended up being Crowned the NEW 2012 SC STATE OVERALL Women’s Bodybuilding CHAMPION.

CONGRATULATIONS N’Keigh Miles on a GREAT WIN!! ;o)

The MAIN THANG…

I took pride in having won my class and having the opportunity to GO For the Overall Win!

But again, my main goal was achieved…presenting a Better, Stronger, Leaner Physique on Stage!! ;o)

FEEDBACK…PAYBACK….ON THE RIGHT TRACK!!

Better than any kind of Bling or Hardware I could’ve scored at this competition was the feedback the SC State Chairman and a couple other judges shared with my Coach / Trainer.  Voluntarily, and in separate conversations with my  Coach / Trainer they commented on the vast improvements I have made since having begun competing in June of 2010. Plus, one of the Judges caught me backstage and told me that my evening routine was the BEST of the night!! :O)

Those comments are AWESOME to hear, let me know I’m on the Right Track, and are the Dividends Paid Back – making ALL the HARDWORK SO WORTHWHILE!!!

Now I just got to keep KEEPIN’ ON!!

I don’t want to Lose My Gains, Nor Gain back My Losses ;o)  Crazy Bodybuilder Speak there! ;o)
