2 Competitions, 2 Suits, 1 Goal Accomplished ~Priceless

I know all of you have been wanting to know how my day went for the competition.  So far you know I have had some Tanning Issues, Followed by a great brunch. But what happened show day?

Well First I couldn’t sleep. Work up with thumb prints all over my chest because I was not told to sleep with socks on my hands! I looked a bit diseased but was able to get it touched up before I headed out on to the stage.

And of course, That's me, eating my rice cake smeared with PB and Jelly. Can I tell you it was the most wonderful thing I had ever eaten. I mean I haven't touched PB or Jam in a long time and the two together, well. HEAVEN! I am having a craving for them right now.


Once I had some energy, it was time to get into suit number one for SAF. I honestly felt good in the morning. I felt my body looked good and I was ready to rock it. This is a photo of me back stage just practicing my stage presence.  I have to say though, I am not sure if SAF is for me. While I was hitting poses, I felt perhapsit was too "flirty" for me and I not about the physique but about throwing your booty around. And I can't say that that's my style.


IDFA however was more my style. I trully enjoyed just getting out there, hitting your front, side, back poses. I felt that it represented more the physique (particularly in the Figure category). However, one thing that took me by surprise was Aunt Flo. Yup she made an appearance so by the night show, I felt bloated, heavy and just tired. Word of advice, don't compete in two shoes in one day. I just was exhausted and depleted!

Although I didn't place (I have a feeling I came in last because I am still carrying a lot of fat comparatively to other women who competed) its ok. I feel I won in my books. Getting up on stage, doing something out of my comfort zone and letting a select few judge me on my body, well…I think I rocked it regardless!

Have you done something out of your comfort zone lately?

  2. wow! amazing--people judging me on my body is probably my worst fear ever! you rock! 

    this weekend, i am selling my vintage at a fair. this is a little out of my comfort zone...selling behind the computer is so much easier. no one is analyzing and judging your goods right in front of you! my shop is my baby so this is scary! but not as scary as being  judged in a swim suit!

    PS: The red bikini top could totally be adapted into a Wonder Woman costume!

  23. You look AMAZING! I mean what a body!!! And I'm glad the tan evened itself out- I've woken up with strange marks too but it all sorts itself out in the end.  I am so proud of you- you did something not many people could do and you went for it.  Now go ahead and eat some Nutella!

  24. Daaaayuuum, girl.  I had no idea that you had such a bangin' body.  Who cares if you didn't win?  You accomplished something huge in your life!  Besides, you could always  beat up the winners with those guns you have.

  28. I absolutely have not done anything nearly this far out of my comfort zone lately. It doesn't matter how you placed, you put so much of yourself into this competition and achieved so many of your personal goals, you absolutely have won. Congratulations. What are your plans now? Will you be continuing with figure competitions, or crossing this experience off your bucket list?
    xox,
