Show Time!

It's Show Day!! This past week has flown by in a flurry of work projects and deadlines, beauty appointments, final workouts, and packing preparation. Now it's the morning of the show. I'm laying in a tan-stained sheet on the bed, realizing I forgot to sew the strap of my suit. I'm thinking a safety pin may have to suffice.

I feel ready. This is a huge show - 350 competitors! All the big names come to it because the promoter is the head honcho of the organization. It's THE place to be this weekend.

We drove up to Pittsburgh yesterday morning. I took a short nap before going to check in at the venue. Check-in was so well-organized! I was in and out in less than 5 minutes! I love well-run shows!

I got spray tanned at 6 pm, then spent the next few hours shivering while the tan dried. It was to "freeze" on the body, so heat makes it melt and cold air sets it. Miserable thing for someone who's cold all the time anyway, especially with low body fat. Once I was sure the tan wouldn't streak, I laid down on my tanning sheet (the one I bring with me to every show) and watched TV. It was so relaxing to know that all the hard work was done.

This is my favorite part of prep.

Since Figure is one of the last divisions at pre-judging, and THE last division at the evening show, it's going to be a very long day. I can't wait!


  1. So excited for you! Have a fun day! Show 'em how it's done!

  2. YES!!! Go get it! Have the best day ever kicking butt!!

  3. All the hard part is done, now time to have fun! Time to shine! :)
