10yrdream, not many people know about the Galaxy, probably because it's only held in a few places. I've tried to compete in fitness competitions locally and about a week before I would cave in and break my diet. There's a Galaxy competition coming up in Plano, Texas in April I am going to. I'm still thinking if I should wing it and test it out or not. But I'm not sure if you have to qualify for this one or not. Most you have to.
I've been following your journal since you started it. You need to get those pics up girl so we can tell you what your weakness is before your comp...if you have any that is!

then drop to knees and tweak out a few more till I couldn't lift my body again.

I was going to go to the track and do some sprints this evening, but my hamstrings are still sore from yesterday. It's starting to snow but I may still go and just jog a few laps.
I had another great time at the jailhouse doing Ju-Jitsu yesterday. We worked on chokes and neck cranks. We've been studying Bas Rutten's books and videos. He's a bada$$. I just participate because it's good for a woman to know this stuff. They do it because they get in those barbaric cage fights.

Tomorrow is a rest day and couldn't come at a better time.

Being strong is like being a lady, if you have to continually tell people you are, you really aren't.
