Comp Day

Gosh, where do I start?????

First thing I have to make mention of is the WNBF. They are a fantastic federation that really look after "every" competitor and they made us all feel so welcome.
Every single competitor was drug tested, even the sports models!! This makes it a truely Natural and fair federation.
We were all made to pose exactly the same way, again this make for fair judging. It wasn't easy but you just do it as best you can.
Danny Chau and his team did a great job on the first Australian Comp. Well done!

I arrived for rego and was told I was in Figure open short division. I almost said "what the?". I said that I was 166cms tall and I needed to be placed in the tall division as the cut off point is generally 165cms.
Sonia was lovely and agreed, so the changes were made. :-)

So that now meant 5 girls in my class.

The day was long and I only have one issue and that was my hair grrr. It gets dreamtan through it and it's gross. Plus I stuffed up my routine toward the end but just smiled it off and kept going lol. It really isn't that bigger issue at the end of the day.

So what was the result??

Im so pleased to announce that I came first. I still can't believe it. But I have to say my condition yesterday was fantasic and my inprovements over the last six months were unbelivable.

We filed on stage and I and I got the sever shakes again grrr, so hard to pose when shaking like that. I was right at the end of the line.
We did our sysmetry and poses and I shook the entire time.
We were then moved around a little and I was placed in the centre (I think). I then noticed I had stopped shaking. I this was my moment to try my hardest to look confident and strike good poses. It was going a lot better now.

I think I pulled through it well, I was just sooo happy with my condition yesterday and that was the best thing ever. I had to be better than last comp and I achieved it.

I spoked to Lia last night and this is what poured out from me. I told her that it was so hard to discribe how I was feeling, I couldn't put it into words.
I used to go to bed most nights fantasising and dreaming about that very moment, like any competitor does. It's a dream to aspire too. Then to have it actuall happen is another thing. I didn't "expect" to win yesterday.

Tracey was sooooo stunning on stage. She had a big line up and she stood out. Her bikini and hair were goregous and she had the whole package, just wait til you see the pictures.

Congrats to Alicia for placing third. You have improved so much and deserved it. I didn't get to see the routine :-(, I was pumping up backstage. You must be proud, im proud of you.

I almost forgot lol. I had to stay back for the overalls. I didn't win but in Josh's opinion I came second lol. It was fun regardless to experience this division.

I was the last to leave, getting home at 9.30pm. I washed my bikini and had a shower, cleaned off the dreamtan and without dinner hit the sack at 10.30pm. I needed to get up this morning for a lower body workout and a cardio session.

Im hoping I covering most of it.

Di, you are soooo gorgeous and you will be amazing next sunday on stage. Your looking incredible.

Talk soon,
Deb xxxx

You don't know how happy you just made me with that comment.
Tracey you made my day.
You liked sensational on stage and I have learnt some grooming techniques from you. I will be wearing my hair up on Sunday (hopefully lol).
I can't wait to see the pictures!!
