It is feeling a little more like reality now. Competitors spend all these weeks training and dieting (and avoiding some social activities) to spend 2.5 minutes on the stage. It is the craziest thing! For those 2.5 minutes, I will be displaying all my hard work…tanned, oiled up, and smiling. I cannot wait to get up there. I sent off my entry fee and form and I ordered my tanner yesterday. I have to get this stuff out of the way before I get really carb deprived. Those last 2 weeks leading up to the show will be a challenge and I plan to do as little thinking as possible!
I just started working each week with my posing coach 2 weeks ago and practicing almost daily on my own. Ya really gotta get a handle on the strippa heels. I will not stumble because of lack of practice. I am prancing around the gym in my heels and short shorts almost everyday to make sure that I have these poses and this walk down. People really don’t know how challenging it can be to flex, hold a pose, and still keep a natural, unstrained smile…it takes some serious practice. Don’t yall worry though, I GOT THIS!!
