Peak week and time for the BIG day! Competition day!

 

If we just go back a few weeks before competition day, I was on a special diet consisting mainly of seafood. Luckily, I love seafood so I had no problem being on this diet. During this time frame my house, car and company cafeteria all smelled of seafood which I am not so sure everyone around me liked that much J

 

Currently I am on a 1300 calories diet which means that I am very tired, hungry and I have no energy what so ever. I suffer from constant mood swings which is difficult as I don’t always want to talk to people around me. This is really strange to me as I am usually a very outgoing and positive person full of energy. I have to admit that this is very challenging for me BUT you have to love every step of this fitness process.

 

What is this fitness process? This process is physically a tough challenge as you constantly have to be on top of your game. You have to think about what is best for the upcoming competition. The best part about this process is the last week before competition day as you here will see the results of all your hard work on your body. This is what’s it’s all about. Competition day.

 

When we have to get weighed in for competition day, we get divided into groups that classify when we have to go on stage. I am pleased that I got in the group that I had hoped for: bikini fitness seniors: 169cm. This takes place 1-2 days before competition day.

 

I will have to admit that I am terrified to get on stage BUT this was a completely different experience. I loved every minute of it. It was so unbelievable, I completely regained my self confidence. This meant the world to me. I DID it. I challenged myself to the maximum.

 

I am so proud of myself and I get very emotional when I see photos of me on stage. My main goal with all this was to get over my anxiety and enjoy this wonderful experience. On top of all this I got in the final.

 

I am so proud of getting into the final and of my overall 6th place. My fitness level was a little too low and my body fat (13.5%) was a little too high. All in all, I am very happy about my body and fitness level. I never felt that I lost myself in this very challenging journey.

 

Right now, I am considering if I should participate in the Danish Championship on 8th September

this year. I have mixed feelings about participating as I am financially on a tight budget and I don’t want to get the same result or lower. I want to aim for a better result than current my 6th place.

 

I have learned that competitions are fun but also very challenging on your social life. My family and friends miss me and I miss them too. I know that I have not always been there for them during the past 6-8 months and I want to make up for the now.

 

This I will do. I will make it up for my loved ones BUT I just need 15 more weeks to complete my next assignment: Danish Championship in September. I have to this. This is my dream. Getting on that stage again is so rewarding for me.
