“Now, that was hard,” she said of the high-heel exercise. “But I knew the judges would look very closely at posture and muscles and smiling...when I did that for like 45 minutes on stage I couldn’t believe it. It was really hard.”

Often, her precise food measurements would take a long time and he would finish a meal before she even started.

As for a second bodybuilding competition, Baron said there are no definite plans. She missed eating meals with her husband when she was training. Now, that’s her focus.
