We had to eat sooo much food. It was kinda overwhelming, but i got it all in and held it down.
9:00AM - Show is starting. Backstage scarfing down some snack foods and doing a few strength moves while I wait for my coach to take me through my circuits.
My mind is swirling what is my best side chest? what is my best triceps side? Are my quads popping enough? where are my abdominals I know i have them? have my arms pumped up enough? they were sooo big a week ago!
Number 2 to the stage!
Not nervous. Still just anxious and excited. Just got touched up, oiled up, and pumped up, nothing else I can do now but show it off!
Phew! That was absolutely exhilirating. The lights were soooo bright. I could kind of see the audience but mostly can see the face of the judges. I was smiling so big I could feel my face twitching! I couldn't help it, it was just sooo exciting. Then I got to meet with the professional photographer for individual photos I hope these came out really good.
Not much going on during this time. My family goes to grab lunch and fiance goes to run some errands. I get left in the hotel by myself to eat my preshow meal and snacks. Tried to nap but my head is just swirling and I am soooo thirsty, I only get about 30minutes of sleep, the rest of the time is spent just relaxing trying to calm my mind. I go through my routine about 10 times just to get it cemented in my head.
Check-In for evening show at Brenau University. This is the big show, we find out who won what and I get to go through my routine in the evening show. I will be the 2nd person to go on stage.
It all just seemed to go by sooo fast...but...I did it...I competed in my 1st Bodybuilding competition, and I won, 1st place!
TIME TO EAT!
1st post show meal, 2slices of mellow mushroom pizza. 1 slice grilled chicken and 1 slice spinach, and a glass of wine. OMG it tasted soooooooo good.
Food then sleep and a lot more water.
I am exhausted by nights end but what an amaaaazing weekend.
All the dieting, all the hours in the gym, it was all completely worth it!
I will definately do it again. Back in April! I do have a marathon to get through in November ;-)
