This is my LAST week of contest prep before the big day! I am SO excited!! I feel like I am ready...at least as ready as I'm gonna be at this point. Obviously, there is still room for improvement. There always is! I feel good about my routine, my posing, and my physique( except for that pesky glute area.)
Mon - Thurs. this week, I'll be doing a little less cardio, very light training, and a few more practices. Thurs. and Fri. I'll be drying out and staying thirsty. This part, I really hate. I will park my butt in the sauna for a little while on both days and practice posing in there to help squeeze out the water. I will be getting a pedicure at some point this week too. Fri. night is tanning and check-ins and eating...yay!!
Saturday is going to begin VERY early. I'll be up by 5:30am to get my make-up on and pack some food before my awesome hair guy comes over at 6:30am to do my do;) I have to be there to get one more coat of tan by 8am, meeting at 8:45am, and on stage at 10am!! I can't wait!!! I feel more ready than I have ever felt before any competition! It's a great feeling!
So, what am I looking forward to eating when the show is over? It's weird, usually I am craving pizza and sweets. Right now, all I really want is frozen yogurt and sushi...not together of course;) Then, I want to go to Pappasito's when my kiddos and I get to Houston! Other than that, I'm totally fine with what I'm eating now.
I am HOPING, and my toes are crossed, to re-qualify so I can go to Jr. USA's in May. My plan is to get right back on track with training, cardio, and diet when I return from Houston. Hmmm....scratch that. I'll get back on track with diet when my kids' spring break is over. I want to enjoy lots of stuff with them. They look forward to that when I'm competing. Anything for THEM, right? *wink, wink*
