In BODYBUILDING! :awesome:

After much thought and going back and forth on whether I wanted to still pursue Figure at the national level. I have finally made my decision.

I'm very excited about this! Tracy's conditioning is OFF THE HOOK, and she belongs in BB where she can give it her all with her contest prep and represent the little girls well! :bowdown:

Thanks Sioux and Lori. I'm excited about this switch. I pondered over this idea for quite a few months, weighing all my options. I even made a mental list of pros and cons for both figure and bodybuilding as I slowly made my decision. It was a heavy burden on my shoulders which is so silly, I know.

I do owe alot to my husband Cameron. Without him, I would not be here today. I could not go forth without his blessings so I thank him for everything.

Okay, I'll tell him to get his buttocks over. He just got sick tonight. He was well one minute and the next, he was/is sick like a dawg. Stomach flu, both ways. YUCK! I feel so bad for him! I can count on 1 hand how many times in the last 10 years, he has been sick enough to not go into work. Tonight is one of them. :(

I'm 5' 2". I'm a shorty. :waving:

I read somewhere that the average height for an American adult male is 5' 10", so I guess that qualifies me as a shorty too at 5' 9"! :D :p

I am sooo looking forward to seeing not in the teapot ( my name for Figure girls) position....lol

I wish I could convince one of my clients to come to our side. She has the potential to be a very good bber.

What made you decide to finally switch?

Thanks Athena!

:spit: @ teapot. That is a cute terminology. :rolf:

There are so many reason that made me finally decide to switch.

After I was told that I was too hard, too dry, too vascular when I competed at the USA's last year in figure and also to stop lifting weights.....I had to decide what I was going to do.

Hubby and I sat down and talked about what I was going to do this year. We finally decided that I was going to try figure one more time in '08. Bring a whole new package on stage and see what happens. But I had to change up my training...lighter weight, more reps etc... and I was just not happy at all. I went on for several months with my fire not burning too bright. :(

Then I sat hubby down and told him how I felt. We discussed it more and I started leaning more on one side than the other and just that alone, made me feel re-newed! It was pretty cool! I started up DC again and trained super heavy like how I LOVE too....and then I knew in my heart what I needed to do.

And so, here I am today.

My big logistical wish for the USA's is that Jan Tana book a room in the correct Embassy Suites (the host hotel) this time. Last year they were at the wrong one. In fact our team is personally holding an extra room for them just in case!!

Hey Stephen. To my knowledge, JanTana had tried to book their room, but it was already full which is the reason for being at the other Embassy Suites (this was told to a client of ours who had app't set up with JT...she actually then canceled with them and went with Mary at Protan). But that mighty kind of you to hold that extra room for them.
