My name is Lisa King and i'm a 31 Year old bikini model/personal trainer who will be to represent Australia this year at the INBA world natural body building olympia in San Diego on Nov 6-9 2014.
Although i am pleased that at over 30 years of age I will be stepping on stage to represent, my country and state, what i am most proud of is representing the women in the community that have suffered tradgedy and who have come back strong.
I would like to share my story with you as:
I might be trying out for my world title for bikini momma and yes I will always be a mother but my daughter Piper passed away 11 days after birth on the 15-12-2011.
This has been the single moment that has defined me, any parent reading this right now will have shivers as you couldn't imagine what it would feel like to bear a child and for her to die in your arms and i have seen ALOT of dark days and nights that have turned into days and i thought i were never going to end. Thankfully I have had support including SIDS and some amazing friends but fitness is what has helped rebuild me the most.
I had no control over the event that lead to my daughters passing but all i can do and have been doing is rebuild. At first I didn't feel i had the right to go into this category as so many days I dont feel like a mum but the more I kept at it I wanted it for me for her and as I can't show her the love and attentiveness a mother longs to give I can try do something positive in her memory and show women and people that something horrible can turn into something incredible.
This is my chance to show woman and families worldwide that whilst the pain will always be there, however the pain can help to you refocus and be used to inspire others.
So far i have entered the INBA Victorian titles and won the title for Miss Bikini Momma 2014 and come second in Bikini model over 30's.
At Australian titles and placed 5th in the Bikini Mommas and 8th in the over Bikini models 30's.
I will be entering two divisions in worlds and am so excited to see how far i can go, and to show other mum's and women over 30, that whilst life is hard, your fitness and health can help you be successful in life.
I am starting this fund raiser to help cover some expenses associated with comepting overseas.
These expenses will be flights, accommodation, transportation and costs associated.
Get behind me so that we can show the world, Australia women over 30, are acheieveing fitness and greatness.
