Almost 1 week out

Not sure where to start. I had a very busy weekend. Saturday was my birthday plus it was the day Steph and Ali competed at the ANB for the first time and I was lucky to be there to see them for pre judging.
They both looked fabulous and did so very well, they both have a bright competitive future ahead of them :-)

Sunday was full on for me as I had my client Eleanor competing in novice at the WNBF. I felt like mother hen to her lol. She ended coming 2nd so you can imagine how happy her and I both were considering she had come to me approx 12 weeks ago having never done any weight training before and asked me to prep her! She lost about 8kgs and managed to build enough muscles. Her condition on the day was really good and I even got many compliments on the way her tan came up. She put in so much work and I am extremely proud of her.

As you know Jon Davie was away so I haven't had a chance to see him since Tuesday last week and don't get to see him until Monday so that's two weeks! I feel a little freaked out at the moment as I don't know if i'm on track and won't know until Monday my final week.
Being so close to the show any competitor would know how hard it is to judge for yourself. One minute you think your right on the money, the next minute you feel very uncertain. I really need to keep it together until Monday.

I fly out to Sydney on Saturday morning, the show is on Sunday. The competition will be huge and very competitive, I can only do my best and hope that my condition is spot on at the right time, I have been having issues with holding lots of water over the last few weeks, I think it's improving now but again not sure of much right now as my judgement seems very clouded.

Work is still demanding and busy and life is stressful. I can't wait until this is all over as I really need to focus on my daily life. I must make a note to myself as a reminder not to do two seasons in one year. Prepping most of the year is way too much especially in my line of work. I will just compete at the end of the year. Boy I can't wait to rest up :-) Even if (big if) I was to place at the WNBF Asia-Pacific's I won't go the the World's in New York, I just can't get away now :-( and to prep for another 4 weeks is not very enticing right now either.

I will be at the Olympia promoting International Protein so I can't wait to catch up with many of you who will be attending and competing.
