Wow… 12 weeks has just about come to an end! It has been a great journey (aside from the cranky times).
Tomorrow is the big competition… The Excallibur, I am pumped and excited with a ton of nervousness. The great thing about the experience is learning my body. I was using the excuse of my genetics before for not getting the ultimate body. Now I have learned how to work my body to get the results I have always wanted.
This was by no means easy… who wants to give up ALL SUGAR ALL ALCOHOL ALL BREAD… but I made it though. The workouts were intense and it was great to see the transformations each week.
Ok… so thats what I got out of it but what is the day before looking like for me?
Well, it really started last night… I started painting with ProTan. I ended up rushing to Lowe’s to get a paint brush… thats a great tip for anyone going through this… those black spongy paint brushes are the way to go!
After Two Layers Of Competition Tanning
To the left is a picture of myself from just two layers on my face… my trainer wants me to get up to 6! No one will recognize me.
Also yesterday: I started carbing up with 100g of carbs (I was so excited about oatmeal). Because you want to keep carbs from depleting I had to get up at 3am this morning for a small bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon. At around lunch time, I cut out sodium (this is a lot harder than it sounds). And I went to the tanning bed for the LAST time.
Moving on to today…
I started off with 500 mg of potassium, eating oatmeal for breakfast and going ahead and filling up a jug of water (this is all I can drink from now till around 5 pm).
I did another layer of tanner (gross), did my lovely nails… I was so mad that one broke this week so I had to do fakes… got new eye makeup (what a great excuse)… and cleaned my house (can’t break normal schedule).
For lunch I did chicken and oatmeal, and a snack of corn cake with salt-free almond butter spread over it.
Of course I have been practicing my posing but at this point if I don’t have it down who knows if I will!
At 5 pm the hard stuff starts… I start dehydrating to really get those muscles defined and the skin thin. My last drink will be coffee which I am actually excited about. I love a good cup of joe!
Then its more painting tonight and tomorrow the big day!
