It’s official (yet again)
Luckily I checked the NABBA website this morning because entries close this Saturday.
After a quick text “discussion” with Miss Jo I completed the forms, burned my music onto a cd and arranged for delivery. So I’m now officially a NABBA competitor.
The decision as to what class I would do hinged on when the weigh in was being held. I would have had to hold off carbing up to keep my weight down to get into a class with a height to weight ratio limit. When I saw the weigh in was at the athlete briefing the morning of the show it was pretty obvious that I would be entering into the physique class.
It’s not too much of a stretch I usually do the physique category. The Christchurch show was the first time I’ve ever tried Figure. I have never competed in the NABBA federation before though, so I have some things to learn (like posing in both directions and doing a lat spread) .. but I’ve got two and a half weeks so I guess I’ll just have to practise, practise and then practise some more. At least I get to keep my feet flat on the ground! One less thing to worry about 😉
I saw Miss Jo for training last night, the first thing she did was pull up my top to check I still had some semblance of abdominals. She was pleased with what she saw so I didn’t have to do any measurements (thank goodness, they always depress me).
attacked trained my legs, there were a few moments where I prayed to God and there were other moments where I swore and even times when I thought tears would burst forth, but it was good .. NO it was a GREAT session, just what I needed to shake off any post show cobwebs.
The plan is to drop a few more kilos in the lead up to the next show so my diet has changed. When I told James last night he gave me his “Oh shit, I better tip toe around her” look but he smiled and said .. “If that’s what it takes” (all the while thinking, I’m glad I’m not a bodybuilder) 😉
Today is day one of the new plan .. wish me luck.
Till next time
What kind of diet changes? This is so exciting!! What kind of suit do you have to wear?
It’s no carbs except for breakfast, so not that exciting really 😉 and the suit is pretty much the same as the figure girls, but less bling 🙂 Im thinking I will wear my blue one in the morning and a purple blinged up one for the night show.
