CONGRATULATIONS TO MISS EMILEE on her first ever bikini competition. I really don’t quite know where to start this story.
This is quite a journey and while the end results are that Emilee made it to the stage looking absolutely amazing, took some very well deserved placings against around 25 girls that day and never finishing lower then 5th, there is much more to this.
Emilee started prep 22 weeks out and at weeks 20 she was hospitalised due to a burst appendix, she had surgery and it took 4 more weeks to get her back to full strength and training. So from 16 weeks out we were back on track and Emilee made some incredible progress. 5 weeks out Emilee was in hospital again due to a cyst that took her out for 2 more weeks.
Emilee bounced back and wanted to keep going and was cleared by the doctors to do so. We had to be very careful and adhear to the doctors advice so I had to scrap most of the plans from here and just make sure we didn’t upset Emilee’s body.
It turns out there is an unknown condition that the doctors are trying to figure out for Emilee and it’s not related to competing it is something else.
I’ve also been told that the plans I had in place definitely helped to ensure Emilee’s condition did not get worse as she wanted to finish this journey.
So regardless of placing, this girl is the true champion for still achieving her goals and overcoming so many road blocks where many would have walked away and given up, I am super proud of her legendary journey 🏆
