Aussie Titles

Why not???

I figure 4mths of dieting and hard work for 10mins on stage... Ill be in Melbourne whats 2 more weeks of dieting huh??? A struggle i tell ya hehe!

6 More sleeps till i step on stage and yet again feels a lil surreal, wont be anyone there i know other then Mick but this time its for the experience , still working hard to get in tip top condition but its been a struggle as i never contemplated placing in my first comp so the plans for dieting were not considered to go past my photoshoot we did for fun on Thursday!
I plan to continue competing in years to come but you never know what the opposition will bring i may never place again so im taking this as an opportunity to compete at National level! Cool Huh!

So here goes 6 more sleeps people and maybe this time ill look more like i know what im doing hehe!

Congrats to everyone who competed yesterday at the ANBs on the Goldcoast, Special shout out to my girl STEPH 3rd place baby we are a team hehe.... Ali for 1st place... And Krisitin what a champ 2 comps in 2 weeks you were killing it up there confident and having fun babe!

Keep up the awesome work everyone xoxo

And then it was over....

Omg what an experience and a half to say the least.

One day in my life i'm never going to forget, to achieve a goal i set out when i was a wee tacker and come home with a placing OMG!

So lets start from the beginning.....

Peak Week:
What a head game that was for me i tell you! Going from LOW carbs 2 weeks out and to be smashed with loads of carbs i honestly had no belief that id come in looking hard or lean at all. Mick (my bf) was who did my diet the whole way thru decided to try something a lil different to the "typical" peak week that majority of ppl tend to follow..."Trust me" were his words, thats all i could do. Tuesday was my HIGH carb day and i tappered my carbs back down towards show day, my god peak week was full of energy and great workouts but the headgames still continued right through, was nice to have the support from the Lovely Steph, And blogger friends, fellow competitors Kristin and Tiarna!

Registration day:
Reality started to kick in still feeling like i was in no shape to step on stage with my two coats of contest color we made our way to Geebung to register and then back to motel to put on more coats, relax and prepare for the following day! Headed to the stores for some final purchases of things we needed food, makeup, oh and a treat for afterwards ... Kit Kat Caramel mmm! A phone call from my mum informed me she could not make it was rather upsetting she had been called into work and there was nothing she could do to get out of it, made me feel like smashing my treat there and then!! Later in the evening Mick and i went for a stroll to get out in the fresh air and had a bit of a chat, this was the first time we really spoke bout placings etc this wasn't something i considered making it to the stage was my whole focus! This was were i decided if i was happy with my outcome on the day this would decide whether or not i partake in ANB the week later! Not thinking id sleep i did and it was quite a satisfying night sleep too!

Show day:
Was up at 5am so ready for a shower, and sick of covering toilet seat in tp so i wouldnt get tan all over it but still managed too some how hehe! Morning started with Lamb and Sweet Potato mmm what a change from the good ol egg whites! Did some posing practise with Mick and started applying Tan Master to him first ( I must say out of the whole experience the tanning was the worst bit). On to my second meal a carbless bar mmm rockyroad flavoured why is it when you try make it last you get caught in the moment and gorge hehe! Then my turn for Tan master! The most scary bit getting ready for me was make up and hair i would have liked to have payed someone to do it due to my lack of experience but all in all was quite surprised with the creation i did MYSELF hehe!
Still all sticky from Tan was time to head to the show! Got lots of supportive msgs and phone calls through out the morning and day it was amazing!
Met up with some friends and got to meet some of the blogger girls and ppl i have met via facebook! Intermission rolled round quick and it was time for tan touch ups for Mick and for him to get ready to take stage and shine! Im so proud of him he placed 3rd in Intermediate man its hard for him being tall but he did an awesome job of making himself standout! YAY MICKEY!
An hour till it was my turn, the figure novice tall were b4 me and this was when i really started to freak out... NOT LONG NOW AHHH! I had Mick and my friend Jodie touching up my tan while the lovely Jo was adjusting my Bikini ( felt nice to be fussed over) Also had Jodies Partner there cracking jokes while stuffing his face with Pizza , bustard hehe!
"5mins" they called out OMG Panic mode this is it, no turning back now, i could not believe what i was about to do! Slowly moving to back stage ( freaking out bout heels) i stood in line with the other 11 girls all i wanted to do was cry instead made small talk with the girls either side of me! Looking around i felt we all were a similar build but naturally felt screwed hehe! Time to walk the stairs hehe (practiced this at home) The lights were so bright, and i could not make out a single face in the crowd, but i could here my name being called out! Then the shakes started omg it was horrible, slowed my breathing down and visualised it was no different to being on stage about to teach a class this helped calm me down! Posing hurts like a bitch im still sore! And the rest pretty much a blur hehe even having my name called out for 3rd place all i remember was throwing my hand up and doing some stupid queen wave hahaha!


After all the "thank you's" and hugs and kisses from my amazing family friends and was time to hoe into the food mmm lots consumed it would make you sick to know how much and what lol!

I still dont think it has fully sinked in what happened that day but its now 2 days later and im still on a massive high from it! Not continuing on with ANB but will be there to support Steph, Ali and Kristin. Go team bloggers Go! But i have tickets to Melbourne as Mick was hopping to qualify for the Australians now that we both have im contemplating competing in this i think most ppl will be more focused on the Olympia see how i go this week back on the dieting, training and cardio!

Thanks everyone for the lovely comments and words of encouragement along the way...

Bring on 2010 more muscle... more maturity... MORE COMPS WOOHOO! I've got the bug!

2 more sleeps!

Wow the last 4 months for me have flown by despite how i was told they would drag i really wish i had a n extra 4 weeks or so cos i still don't feel fully ready for what i'm about to do on Sunday... But i'm guessing no matter how prepared you think you are you will never be fully satisfied always striving for a better you etc!

Wow the mixed feelings/emotions going through my head at the moment are spinning me out a lil! Wondering if ill pull this off?, will i look the shittest, what can i bring to the stage that others don't have?, am i looking shit at the moment, hmmm 2 days time and first show done and dusted! Don't get me wrong i'm fully excited bout this journey but its natural to be wondering the unknown!

I got my bikini yesterday and it was like xmas hehe i love it so much and quite suprised that i dont mind how i look in it either hehe but cant wait to see the final result of tan, hair make up oh im going to so look like a lady hehe ( very not like me shorts thongs and singlet all the way hehe)

I want to thank all the bloggers for your support and encouragement along the way its been amazing and i cant wait to meet a lot of you over the next few weekends and over the years to come!

Its time to shine baby .... MOJO ALL THE WAY!

It still seems very surreal that in one week time i will be steppin (or tripping in those heels) on stage and accomplishing a goal i set when i was like 12 yrs old! YAY!!!

This journey has seen a new beginning and hopefully a lot of goodbyes to bad habits, i have discovered so much more about who i am and how i work over the past 20 weeks or so and not for one minute (hmm sometimes a split second) do i regret ever making the decision to follow this through, it has taken a lil while to except that being my first comp and all im not going to look as ripped as id ideally like to, i wont have as thick muscle as i dreamt of but you know what im 24 yrs old i have plenty of yrs ahead for this so called "muscle maturity" to occur, so yes at this stage i do see myself competing again ( even though there a moments through the day i do have to remind myself why the hell im doing this again hehe).

The past few weeks i have been wanting to blog more but to be honest finding the time has been really hard not to mention having to think about what to say has been harder hehe i've never experienced the feelings of being so lethargic, unmotivated, tired, emotional, hungry, irritable, oh and my tolerance level to the human race my god im so sorry if ive snapped at any of you i didn't mean to honest hehe, and these feelings can happen all in a matter of 5 mins hehe!

Another thing that has come up is relationships with friends and family... You really find out who is there for you and who is not! My family have been great backing me all the way and they will be there on the day no doubt the loudest shouting out to me.... My friends hmmm well they either get it or they don't but also i have made some awesome new friends along the way that have inspired me and i have been told i have inspired back these are the people who really count and make it all worth while : ) love you guys you know who you are.... And one last mention in regards to relationships is MICK i could not have done this with out him, he has helped me through every single lil phase of comp prep and the poor bugger has copped the full brunt of my intense mood swings ( i promise ill make it up to you when its all over) he will also be competing next weekend in intermediate (GOOD LUCK BABY xx)

One week guys..... Let's get the party started hey !!!!! ITS NOT ABOUT WINNING I WANNA HAVE A DAMN GOOD TIME can't wait to meet some of you, best wishes for peak week guys see you all looking glamourous on SUNDAY 20th SEPT WOOO HOOOOO!

2 and a half weeks... 2 AND A HALF WEEKS!

WOW time is really ticking by fast i can't believe it i so don't feel ready enough but hey i guess its my first time and i have nothing to compare ready to! All i know is some days i feel super hard and others i feel bloated and watery! But all in all a change has happened from all this hard work of dieting and exercise ( you would bloody wanna hope so hehe) and i'm proud of myself to be able to stay strong and achieve this goal even though there have been plenty of times i have wanted to throw in the towel LOL ( haven't we all!)

Last week was a shocker doesn't the saying go bad things come in three??? Well i got really sick last Thursday, woke up on Friday with a swollen cheek due to an inflamed gum/tooth and Saturday my car broke down right next to a fish and chip shop after a lovely day of spending some money on myself and going way too long with out food, this was a true tester no matter what was going through my head i stayed strong and got through this lil emotional outburst and was very pleased with myself : )
Only thing i've had to deal with this week is ttom which has been a lil draining due to almost no carbs and running out of iron tablets!
This week ends focusing on a lil me time today i get a massage, tomorrow my hair done and i cant wait till sunday i get my kini off Jo so excited but so nervous that its not going to fit and ill be hanging out everywhere hehe!

Its funny i thought this journey of comp prep would drag, yes somedays do but the weeks fly by i wish they would actually slow down a lil!
How is everyone else feeling you all ready?
Cant wait to meet a lot of you girls!

Eat well, train hard and most of all enjoy the ride girls cos were on the home stretch YAY!
