Got a #timehop notification this morning from the #kumiteclassic in 2012!
TIME FOR A QUICK RANT.
Crazy is smack dab in the middle of my two comps 6 years later! 😳 I actually remember my legs shaking on stage.
This photo is a really good reminder that this sport is subjective. In this comp, I wore a $60 #victoriassecret#bikini and got my #makeup done at the #chanel counter in the mall and some random girl from a booth at the expo teased my hair so that it wasn’t so flat (the feedback I had from the night before was that my hair was flat!) @stasilongo_sonshinefitness made prep fun with #periodizationtraining and had me doing barely any cardio, eating 150g carbs a day (literally made the most of this and was even eating #skittles during #peakweek) and I honestly wondered why everyone didn’t do this sport. It seemed so easy. I must have took for granted my 10 years of gymnastics.
Anyways, I got 3rd place! 💪🏾🥉 Fast forward 5.5 years to Dec 2017 where I hadn’t had a regular exercise program or done much healthy eating. I needed a goal. That’s when I decided to compete.
Since Jan 2017 I have been WORKING MY BUTT OFF - literally - my bum is heaps leaner. ☺️🍑 I came in 4th place. 💪🏾 Despite placing lower this time around, I am 10000x more proud of myself for competing and placing where I did. My goal the whole prep was just to compete, but the last couple weeks my goal was Top 5. I achieved it and it feels so much better than 3rd Place did 6 years ago.
Silky is such a model❤️🐴
So I haven’t posted in forever because I have been at a show and I’m terrible at this😂😂😂 However, Silky was an absolute beast!!! Our last show of last year we got a 48.7 in Dressage. Today, we got a 38.6!! So so proud of baby Silky and how far we have come as a team!! Can’t wait to see what this year has in store! Good or bad 🤷♀️ I did the BN level Combined Test and her SJ round was amazing, with no time or jump penalties! And then to finish it off we did a Novice Jumper round just for fun and just managed to miss the rain😅 She was a spicy pony in the novice and felt great! Super excited and spicy 🌶No jump or time penalties in that either so I couldn’t be more happy with her! We ended up getting 4th and taking home a ribbon 🙌😁 She is so good to me and saved me a few times in Novice when she was just like “mom let me ruuunnn plzzzz you won’t regret it, you’re not letting me ruunnn whhhhyyyy?” 😂😂 She has a new thing- Speed, Scope, Silky 😆😜 Next up...... Lucinda Green Clinic🙌🙌😁😁
QOTD: Haha this is more like a fact, but if you think about it, the brain named itself 🧠😱🤷♀️
AOTD: Credit to @double_ellie_ and her live videos where she said this and honestly it is kinda mind boggling 😂😂
Ensimmäinen päivä, 2 ottelua, 2 voittoa. Riittääkö vastustajien taso? Vai ratsastaako FMT voitosta voittoon ja jääkö unelmana ollut 4th place jälleen haaveeksi?
Valmentaja Leven kommentoi päivän tapahtumia hyvin vähäsanaisesti ja kiteytti kaiken tiiviisti yhteen lauseeseen: ”Never attack in anger.”
