Well I am finally back home from the Costa Rican jungle where I was filming the show “I’m a celebrity, get me outta here!” 30 days of living in the jungle and eating mostly rice and beans sure made me appreciate my home sweet home! I had a great time and made tons of good friends..and was really happy that I got to show people who I really am! I definitely underestimated how hard it was really going to be, by day 3 I found myself looking around camp going “wow, this is gonna be much harder than I thought!” I used my inner strength to get me through and realized I am much more fierce than I ever thought. Quitting was NEVER an option. I want to live by the 2 little words “NO REGRETS” everyday of my life. I hope that I can be a positive influence in many people’s lives by demonstrating that you can do anything if you put your heart and soul into it and don’t give up! I had a few day’s when I was miserable and homesick but without those bad days I would not have walked away from this experience a changed person and appreciated it so much. Nothing is ever easy in life and how boring would it be if it always was?
I came in 2nd place behind Lou Diamond Philips and it was ridiculously close. Only less than 1/10th of 1% of the votes separated us and I later heard they had to do a recount because I was in the lead the previous day. Lou definitely deserves the crown, he’s a great guy and a hard worker…I am elated to have made it to the very last day and owe all of you that voted a big huge THANKYOU!!!! I have the best fans and friends in the world!!
I am very excited about the opportunites coming my way and will of course keep you all posted……working on the first in a series of workout videos already and am so excited because this is something I have ALWAYS wanted to do! I love working out and have so many great tips and tricks to share!
Thankyou God for my friends new and old..and for giving me such a beautiful life changing experience.
