Figure comps are very much like a Wedding in terms of everything you do in preparation for just 1 day. Worth it? Months training and dieting, planing outfit, going to fittings, rehersal, being tired and grumpy, stressed, spending lots of money, planning the day (the last week really) down to the final details, hair, make-up, food... the list goes on and on...
WORTH IT? HECK YEAH! And I get to do it with my Partner, so for me it really is like planing a wedding in some ways.
I'm pretty keen to stone my own suit this year. Last year I purchased a 'Hot Fix' tool so I could apply extra stones to my pink suit - on the straps and around the back. It was time consuming, but very satisfing adding that extra touch. This year I plan on it being like my craft project (keep my hands busy when dieting and not to taxing on the brain). I won't to ensure that no-one else has a suit like mine, they may have the fabric or the style but I'm going to stone it so much that it looks like a Pro-show suit! As I'm not competing until November I plan on buying the stones as I go, so it won't dent the bank account in such a way that I freak out as much when I realise how much I spent on making my suit sparkly. - Yet another likeness to a Wedding: Expensive Bikini that I will probably only wear once.
I don't really want to say what colour my suit is (But perhaps you can guess?) Don't know why I'm playing coy, I will no doubt post more progress pictures of the Bikini than myself!
But I'm hoping it will look something like this:
I'm pretty bad with Protein Bars at the moment, which won't help me look like Jenny Lynn even if my suit does!
Carbless bars (esp. banana) http://www.horleys.com/ViewProduct.aspx?id=27
EAS Control Bars (Cream pie or Choc Brownie) http://www.allstarhealth.com/f/eas-advantedge_carb_control_bar.htm
These have been my favourite, just because they are easy to get hold of as they are stocked at my local super market. I MUST STOP EATING THEM!
Today I did not follow my normal eating plan - I have dried fruit, protein bar(s) - oh well better out of the system before the comp diet eh?Train hard y'all
