I waited a little over a week to write a roundup post about Nicole's competition. I wanted to provide not only details on the event but what happened afterwards .
As most of you saw on social media the competition was great. Nicole ended up winning 1st in her age division and 3rd in overall. Not too shabby for her first competition :) I couldn't have been more proud of her hard work and commitment and it was so nice to see all of the support she received from everyone. I have to say our Flywheel Family is definitely there for you when you need them!!
After Nicole received her trophies, ate her lemon bars and drank some wine, among other things, the "postpartum" depression hit. It sounds strange that anyone would feel that way especially after a successful show but it happens to most competitors. Instead of being able to relax and chow down, you feel lost without the structure and focus. Now don't get me wrong with time you get back to feeling normal but it is an often unexpected part of the process.
After a few "what do I eat today " texts from Nicole. I realized she was hooked.. It took all of one day for her to decide she wants to go at it again. Not only her but Kate Lahl and Belle Piansay will be training with me for upcoming competitions. Sooo....here we go again! The more the merrier stay tuned.
