Everyone knows how life can be. Life is so effing stressful it can make you want to rip your hair out. Besides the normal small town immature drama, I have had a competition drop in my lap at the last minute.
The competition will be at the Street Machine Nationals in DuQuoin, Illinois this Sunday at 2 pm. $250 for first with crown, sash, & trophy. $150 for second with a trophy. $100 for 3rd & a trophy. National magazine coverage at this event, & I have viewed the website linked above in blue, & the event looks badass! If anything it will be fun!
I blurred last year’s winners faces seeing as I don’t have their permission to post this. Everyone knows I’ve been on a cycle of gaining. I feel in no way prepared! I have decided to cut carbs till Sunday night, & that makes me grumpy! I’m sure my husband & daughter would love to elaborate on this issue. So we won’t ask….
I’ve suddenly been thrusted into a bikini competition I was in no way prepared for. We know how bad I am with OCD and my perfectionism, & it can be both a flaw as well as a strength. Now I’m stressing. I’m working on posing, and I realize it isn’t a NPC event. I figure it’s practice for me.
I find myself faced with anxiety with a moral decision I’ve made about this contest. I will NOT shake my rump or sexually promote anything. I will be posing and keeping myself classy. In Texas I did participate with friends of mine at several local nonregulated bikini contests that also paid cash. They did a dance section. I’m not hating on anyone who does this kind of contest, but I do have a 9 year old daughter looking up to me as an athlete not a sexual object. I will not show her sexual moves are ok just to win. A true athlete, who has fans of a young age, needs to have a certain line they will not cross. I’m treating this as I would a NPC regulated bikini class competition event. Pictured below in a Texas contest, wear you shook your ass…..
It is a scored event, so this eases the anxiety. I still though, in the back of my mind think there’s going to be that one girl who tries to be sexy. Then the judges buy that crap, & she will win. Bummer right?! In the end, if I lose at least I know I did it with class, poise, beauty, & a bangin body!
Look at the above pic, I had to Google pretzel suits….. lame I know! LOL
I will be leaning out, hydrating & then dehydrating, fasting, cardio, & small weight training 3 times a day all week till saturday. Saturday I get my airbrush tan at Sunsplash Tanning located in Kennett, Missouri.
Until then I’ll keep you posted! Thank you for your continued support!
