Figure Fanatic update: 2016 IEQ Natural Nationals

Barbara Molyneaux IFBB ProFigure Fanatic update: “Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even.” – Muhammad Ali

Wow, wow, wow… where to start? This post is long overdue but after a full week of running around like a chicken with my head cut off, I can finally reflect on what I could only describe as an experience of a lifetime. This post will be solely for all of those that played a role, big or small, in this fleeting moment as my dream came together. First and foremost, I thank Joan MacDonald of @daydreamsfitnesswear as this woman has supported me as a sponsor but more importantly as a friend from the very, very beginning. Your friendship is one of the most important in my life. Second shout out goes to @roblagana for being everything he is. He was my supporter, my psychiatrist, my chef, my motivation and rock but to name a few and couldn’t have asked for anyone better to be my side through this epic experience. Next is to Carolyn Shields for being my workout partner, my recipe finder, my food taster, my cardio sidekick, my sounding board. Again, I couldn’t ask for a better friend and love ya like a sister. To my coach @freakmaker1 for not only being my guide through this prep but for being a true coach that heard me at every turn. I find this not only a rare trait and but an invaluable one as well. His wife Christina has also been a huge support off and on over the last year although I truly don’t think she realizes how big a role she played. Kind and understanding to the core, these two were crucial to my success. To Jimmy Xidous for taking me on as an ambassador to represent supplements that are honestly the top of the line in my books. His clean products were also key factors in nursing my body back to health. And finally to the rest of you, clients, friends, followers, supporters, fans, whatever the role, I felt your love and can’t be more thankful for your kind words of encouragement. I knew who believed in me and who didn’t. I knew and felt every intention and in closing, thanks! More to follow tomorrow…. Hugs and blessings xx
