Don't worry. You can cover anything with a good spray tan.

Hey girl! you are doing great :)

many girls I know lose their cycle in the months close to comp due to low BF and stress on the body.

Tan covers a lot as stated above, so it's all good.

Where did you get your suit, and what s the color? I have three but am getting another this year, so shopping around!

Thanks guys! I'm still a bit worried about the poison ivy, but I'm trying not to worry about it. I just hope it doesn't spread any more or get any worse ( not to be gross but covering up blisters may be a bit hard).

The suit it my pictures I got at fitnesspro.com it's a periwinkle color. but it' not the one I'm wearing at the comp. I ordered another from vandellacostumes.com and it will be a darkish purple (but I'm freaking out a bit since I haven't received it yet and the comp is next Saturday)

Hey, I checked out that fitnesspro.com site. Great site! Their suits looked great. Did you have a good experience ordering from them? What did you think of the quality, fit, etc?

ordering from them was easy. the quality is alright and the fit is ok- you get what you pay for. I wanted a cheap suit since it is my first comp so I expected it to not be amazing.

So it's that time already, the final week!!
I don't know if it's normal but I must have the figure blues. I've been knocking my physique and I know I shouldn't. I just have little motivation to keep going. I just keep telling myself, "I've come a long way and have already won because I am in better shape than I was and will only continue to improve". Still tough though. plus my energy levels are pretty low.

anyhow, I've changed my song to Chemical Brothers Galvanize instead and am still waiting for my competition suit to arrive!! freaking out a bit! (at least I have my practice suit as a fall back).

Polygraph on Friday and have my tanning that day as well. I think I'll get my nails done that day as well (I plan on NOT getting fake nails- even though others do them I can't stand them and it would be a waste of my money).

In the meantime- gym and posing practice (need to get the posing perfect)!

still have some poison ivy- but the big spots just look like some weird birth mark at least.

I feel your pain! All I can say is that what makes us successful as competitors is that we keep going even when we don't feel like it and even when we feel that our results are not there. Patience and perserverance is what wins it. And you look great! Be proud! I only know this because I will be competing for the 21st time this month. What you are feeling is very normal. By the way, show day is a blast. Hang in there.

Galvanize is going to be awesome!

I wanna tell you to not be nervous but, a little bit of pre-competition nerves is good! You're going to have so much fun... You've worked so hard and done so much and come so far... it's true. You have already won.

Thanks everyone! I'm not too nervous right now, I know that will change come Friday though. I'm really just looking forward to meeting other figure girls who can somewhat relate to what I've gone through (minus the crazy amount of chicken they have consumed I'm sure).

I've been debating about the nail thing- I've been trying hard to grow mine out so I didn't have to get them done. What do you guys think? I know presentation is a good portion of my score, will the nails make a huge difference?

I don't know a thing about figure competing.. But I think, that it's better to show what you got with the kind of nails you prefer, than to glue something onto your hands you don't really want to have. Looking good is very much linked to confidence, I believe. So if you feel the most confident with the natural length of your nails I'd say go for it..

My call is do the nails. Figure comps are usually pretty glitzy with suit, nails, and lots of bling.

Hey you!

I won't be able to make it to your show after all but really hope to catch one in the future, maybe we'll be on stage on the same day at the same show sometime later on down the road.

I wish you the very best in your competition! Cheering for you from Wisconsin knowing you will kick butt! You're looking great! Can't wait to hear about the results!

Go get em!

Robert

Good luck! Have fun! And most of all remember that you have already won. (and don't forget to tell everyone that you do it vegan)
