One girl's journey into the world of Figure competition

Throw a Wrench In It


So I was one week out… Then I was three days out…  Then all of a sudden, I was 2.5 weeks out.

Not cool.

The Hurricane that took the East Coast by surprise caused chaos in NYC and caused my show, which was on November 3, to be pushed out to November 18.  I understood.  This change was all with good reason (no power, no public transportation, massive flooding), but this threw me for a loop.

Disappointment abounded.  I was really looking forward to some pizza and some cake on the 3rd (my birthday) and I am admittedly tired of dieting.

After having prepped and prepped and felt like there was no end in sight, I was finally coming up to the finish line and pushing through.  Then, on Wednesday night, I got an email from my coach telling me the bad news.

So here I am, now 2.5 weeks out.  I’m going to kick it back up again, re-set.  I’ll be in a better state of mind this time to do the salt and water depletion that I have to do.  I will get there – just a little more to go.

There will only be a more positive outcome because of it.

  2. Wow, I can’t imagine! I’m a week out, and like you, I am tired of dieting. Hang in there! It will be worth it.

      I have not been craving a thing and suddenly, the cravings have begun…I think I had really anticipated having a delicious meal tomorrow and convinced myself I just had a few more days to go. Now, the cravings are heinous!!!
