I get asked a lot of questions. By a lot of people. Mostly about diet, exercise, supplements... etc. Lately I have been asked a question that has ME thinking, scary right? For those of you who don't really "know" me, I am Mormon. No I do not have horns, and I am and will always be my husbands ONLY wife. Now that thats out of the way... I have been asked not once but at least 3 times by 3 different people over the last couple of months what my church thinks of me doing these competitions. Good question. In my mind I have to say that for the most part I feel VERY accepted by almost everyone that shares my religion. My family is VERY supportive and my husband and my kids are my biggest fans. That is all that matters to me.
I don't do these competitions so that I can get on stage in an itsy bitsy bikini hoping to get attention or to be immodest. I am not up there trying to look sexy, or trying to sell anything to anyone. It is a sport to me. It is about being fit, working hard and having goals. In my real life, the more clothes I can have on the better. I don't even like going to the beach unless I can cover up. I am sure that there are those who may judge me, they may even look down on me because they don't understand what I do, how hard it is, the time, effort and money that goes into doing these competitions but that is okay, that is the way it is with anything. This is my passion, my hobby, my sport, my escape. This is who I am.
