Coming back to climb

Those who work out and have incredibly defined muscles, I’m wondering if they’ve ever been fitness models. Naturally I’m a lean person but it takes me a while to get any sort of definition. When I climbed 5x a week for two years I didn’t even have super defined arms. I did love my stomach though at that time.

I’m being a little vain here today and reminiscing about old photos. Check out this one of me flexing, in my parents basement no less, ha ha!

Psst, that purple tank top cost me fifty cents from Old Navy when they were having a sick sale. lol.

The reason why I bring this up was because on my Facebook page there is a local (meaning 1 hour away) climbing gym wants a figure model or probably a handful of them to volunteer to be on their website. I suppose they’re in the process of updating it with some new images. If only I kept up with climbing I’d totally volunteer. Maybe. I kinda like having my photo taken, hah! It’s not like it’s a bikini contest or bikini models or anything. I always wore long pants and a tank when I climbed.

See? fitness models right tharr. I was on the front page of the local newspaper climbing this route! Too bad I can’t show you the photo. I don’t know where it is. But I had a crazy-face. Maybe I’ll hunt it down.

Either way, I’m super excited for the end of this summer since a climbing gym is opening up minutes from our apartment and I will be able to jump back into it all and start bouldering, climbing and getting stronger again. That, paired up with CrossFit, Soccer and Running I’ll be a machine! Boom!I’m hoping that I can actually get back into it, as much as I was doing it before I moved to Ontario. My strength won’t be there, of course – but really it doesn’t take that long to get back into the swing of things, it’s literally like riding a bike.

Is there any sort of thing that you miss doing from your “younger years”?
