19 days until the stage!

WOW BLOG WORLD, it is only NINETEEN DAYS until I step on the stage in a bikini. WHOA!

I cannot beleive that it is almost here. I know I say that every time but I just can't get over how fast the time has gone by.

I am doing pretty well for the most part. Every time I put in my bikini and I look in the mirrror my initial reaction is AMAZEMENT! Then I start really looking and I am like, oh this darn skin or those darn stretch marks or I still have fat pooching here or there. Then I have to re group and remind myself of where I started just 25 weeks ago and then where I was way before that at over 200 pounds and then I am thankful and proud of where I am now and how my body looks. From where I was I have TRULY TRANSOFORMED my body AND my mind. I feel GREAT!

I am trying to slowly mark things off my competition to do list. Not to mention that I will be traveling for 2 weeks post competition with my family. I am not stressing over that though. There is a Wal-Mart where we are going and I can buy anything we need when we get there. Just worrying about the competition first and foremost.

I have my suit
I have my shoes
I have ordered my tanning stuff and it should be here this week
I got my nails done (not something you have to do but I wanted to)
Got a pedicure and I will get nails and toes re-done right before I leave
I need to get my fake eyelashes at Wal-greens
I need to get my rolly suit case down from the attic to take everything that I need the day of the competition b/c you don't want to carry a bag on your shoulder and mess up your tan
Make up - one of my trainers is doing my make up Saturday morning and she has that so I am covered there
Jewelry - borrowing jewelry from one of my trainers in Nashville
Hair cut (trim) this Friday for the girls and I. YAY! Love a fresh hair cut.
Teeth - totally not on the list but it just so happens that I am getting my teeth cleaned on June 3rd about a week before I leave so my teeth will be nice and purty!
Tanning - still tanning as of now but will cut that out in about 2 weeks (1 week prior to the show)
Entry to comp - mailed entry last week for the competition and I will get another card that I need when I get there.
Hotel - booked and ready to go

FOOD!!! - The most important part. My trainer will be sending my last weeks meal plan in the near future so I can start planning for that. As soon as I step off the stage and the moment is right I am eating a shiny and crisp fuji apple with smuckers natural peanut butter on it. That is something that I ate on a daily basis for several years and I MISS IT BIG TIME!! Can't wait to sink my teeth into that. Plus some raw carrrots. I am taking those with me too. Oh the CRUNCH of an apple and carrots and my heavenly peanut butter!!!

That sums up the major parts of what I have gotten done or need to get done. Only 18 1/2 more days left to make this happen and only 16 days until I leave town. Oh I am getting SO EXCITED!

It has been really great to follow your journey online (even though I work at UA also - we "met" on the WW Diamonds board waaaaaaaay back). I am so impressed and, I feel silly saying it, proud of you. Wonderful job and we all want to see pics!!
