April 9 – This Saturday will be 8 weeks’ out from the competition. This has been a rough week, one where I’ve felt really tired and worn out. Not fun. I haven’t been practicing my posing much this week *yikes*! Before this week, I had been doing about 15-20 minutes most days and have been improving.
The next 8 weeks will be rough, exhausting, nerve wracking and fun all at the same time. This week, I’ve been adding back in some more carbs and calories and loving it! Can’t wait until I can reverse diet back to where I was months ago. I love my food! Got to enjoy the small pleasures now because diet cuts and increased workouts are coming. Most likely accompanied by exhaustion and crankiness…. As of yesterday, I’ve confirmed my next posing session (April 22nd), reserved my figure suit, have my show application ready to mail on Saturday and my hair/makeup appointment booked for competition morning. Shit’s gettin’ real! It’s still one of those things that’s coming “one day, down the road” but it’s getting more real the closer I get. I’m still super nervous, excited and determined. I have to be. In 8 weeks, it’s me and the stage.
