Sore? Check. But guess what I’m NOT this week? FREAKED OUT! I AM NOT FREAKED OUT ANYMORE!!!
I fully anticipate butterflies and jitters and all that jazz in the next few weeks. But at some point over the past week I came to the realization that over the course of this training, I have given this process my all. I have trained my little heart out – gone hard with cardio and lifted as heavy as my body would allow. With the exception of that one rugula I ate when I wasn’t supposed to a few weeks back and licking the spoon now and again, I’ve followed my coach’s instructions to the letter in terms of my nutrition. I’m practicing my walk and my posing every day. I’m doing what I’ve been instructed to do in terms of skin prep so my tan goes on evenly. I have a checklist of items that I need to have for the show. All of my beauty appointments are booked.
By the time the show rolls around, I will be able to say quite confidently that there is nothing else I could have done to be better prepared for this show.
Once that thought hit me, it was like a weight had been lifted. When you prepare as much as you can, and you can HONESTLY say there’s nothing else you could have done, then the only option you have left is to have fun and enjoy things!
I started picking up items for the show this past week and I’m getting so excited. It’s not horrifying anymore. I know that when I get on that stage, I am going to belong up there. And with the confidence I’ve gained in realizing my preparation and training have been on point, I know I’m gonna be the sassiest, most confident lady to walk in front of the judges that day.
