Where did the time go? I have a feeling that this next week will either fly by, or draaaaaag. This week has gone fast, so I'm guessing next week will too. Today, I took a little time to pack a few necessities in my contest bag. Dark chocolate M&Ms, pretzel M&Ms, peanut butter...mmm..., and some powdered donuts. I think my eyes are going to be WAY bigger than my stomach, but I know I will definitely love a little nibble of everything.
It's getting down to the wire, all I can do is keep posing, keep training, and keep eating--do what my coach says and all will be ok! Everyone has been so supportive, I didn't expect the reactions I've gotten. I don't really know what I expected. My family and friends have been really awesome. It seems that someone always texts, emils, or FBs me right when I need it. Shane has even put together a little invite for a post-show dinner, it was so sweet. Apparently, he wants as many people as possible to witness my pig-out. Ha! Bring it!
As my diet has gotten more strict, I haven't wanted to cheat more. It's when I look at how much time I have left until the show that makes me want food. I'm looking forward to a break from being so strict. I think I'll want to compete again, but I will want a mini-break. I have been thinking about how much our society revolves around food. Dinners out, movies with popcorn, Saturday afternoon icecream, hotdogs at the ballgame. All things I kind of miss. When I really think about it though, 3 or 4 months isn't much. It will all be worth it when I step on that stage. :)
Even though I had a power nap today, I am exhausted. I'll be getting up early to get my workout in tomorrow. Upper body circuit day, my FAVE! Goodnight!
