As you guys all know, I was training for a OCB Bikini competition. It took place this past Saturday June 27th 2015.
My training had been the reasoning behind the lack of activity on here. But I am here to give you the story of the weekend and how my competition went!
Thursday: 2 days out from Competition, I went to work, and afterwards got a spray tan. This was my base color for the show. Being dark on stage helps you show up with all the lights so that the judges can see your muscles and body.
Friday: 1 day out from the show!
I woke up, ate my breakfast, and went grocery shopping! Whoohoo! I got to pick up snack for the competition as well as some goodies to have after it was done! Sadly, my goodies for after the show consisted mainly of fruit.
I then did my own nails with some that I bought at walmart!
Later that afternoon I did a posing practice to make sure I felt confident in my T-walk routine! And then in the evening, My trainer came over and did the first few layers of my Jan Tana coloring, which went over the spray tan and made me dark! I ate dinner and went to bed early that night!
Saturday! Competition Day! I woke up and ate breakfast which consisted of sweet potato, oats, and black cofffee
I woke up early in order to have another layer of Jan Tana put on, as well as my makeup!
This was the base layer, makes me look really funny!
My trainer and I headed over to the competition ground around 8am to reserve a spot for the day and to check in! We also touched up my makeup, my Jan Tana color, and put on the suit!
I felt great! But now we had to wait until I was about to go on stage. So we did some light exercises to keep the blood flowing and muscles pumped!
Finally it was time to go on stage for Prejudging!
Later in the evening it was time for the T-walk! I rocked mine! (aside from slipping at one point) But first we had to do touch ups to the tan
And then I went out to Eat for Mexican!
And when I finally made it home, I had beautiful flowers waiting for me from my sister and brother-in-law
Overall it was an amazing experience! I had a blast! I met amazing women!
I was a little disheartened that I did not place, but at the same time was so very happy for all those other girls! They worked just as hard (maybe even harder) than I did and definitely deserved it! But I made sure to talk to the judges afterwards to get feedback!
Now I am 9 weeks away from doing another competition! I will be training extra hard for this one! And I will be super excited to know I now know some of the girls I will be seeing and will be able to hang out the whole day with them again!!
