Well yesterday I watched my first ever comp... and it was fantastic!! I got to finally meet Rae, Jadey, Bella, Splice and Andrea! Rae looked absolutely stunning and gorgeous up on that stage, so graceful and totally at ease with sooooo many other girls! It was such a big field!! (I think there were 14 competitors). We all made as much noise as we could to cheer her on! Well done Rae - I think you were amazing, and such an inspiration!
It was quite a long show, I only stayed up until intermission at 4pm, and the show started at 10.30am. So I didn't get to see any of the NABBA stuff (all the WFF classes were on first), but unfortunately I had things to do (like do all my cooking of lunches for the week, put a roast chicken on, do some ironing of work clothes... the usualy Sunday stuff).
It was so cool to meet the girls. I felt a bit strange saying to my BF that I was off to this comp and meeting "some friends from the internet" - sounds a bit shady you know! But I was so happy to meet such a great group of like-minded women, and all such lovely people too! :)
The downside to going to the comp was the fact that I didn't drink all my water, and my meals were all out of whack. Never mind, it was so inspiring to see all those buff bodies up on stage - at the gym this morning I couldn't stop thinking about how fit everyone looked, and how hard I needed to work lol!
I'm going to catch up with Rae and Jadey tomorrow before Rae catches her plane... lucky I've got a great boss!
My plans to NOT have a free meal didn't eventuate... my free meal consisted of cheese and crackers, and 3 glasses of white wine (eeeek). I normally drink red wine, but I went with white this time for a change. It gave me the worst headache, and of course all that cheese wasnt a good idea either. Actually felt really gross and horrible afterwards. Will I ever learn?
Next Sunday I'm off to Melbourne for two weeks for work (well I'm coming home for the long weekend in the middle) so my schedule will be all out of kilter, again! At least I get to stay at a hotel that has a gym, but eating on plan can be a bit of a challenge. I have to take lots of food with me, otherwise I tend to make unwise choices. Not sure how I'm going to cope with the cold weather, I'm definetely going to take my scarf and beanie!
Ok well I've rambled on enough I guess. I'm still on such a buzz from yesterday! Have a great week everyone!
