I want to start off by saying I feel super accomplished for having made it to the stage and finishing what I set out to do. Yesterday was a lot of fun, as well as exhausting. The girls were all sooooo nice and funny and it was an all around good time backstage. Everyone is so supportive of each other and it’s great. I felt happy with how I looked and the progress I made and for being up there, even if I was super nervous the 1st round and literally shaking in my heels. I’m perfectly happy with the results. Now onto that…I got 4th place…..out of 4 girls…..
I’m not gonna lie. When my name was the first called out I was bummed and had a moment of griping when first getting to Peter and my family offstage. But I quickly recovered and remembered how strong and wonderful I felt earlier in the day and not because I thought I was going to win (I didn’t) or anything like that. But because I felt like I did a good job, I was having fun, and I had made it. So I’ve decided to take that – the good – away from the show and be happy for it all and move on to the next part of my life. So onto a normal, balanced way of living again. Basically, on with LIFE.
Okay, moving on – treats!! I actually haven’t even been in the mood for much of anything! Last night, I had one icing cookie, a handful of candy corn, and a few pieces of Halloween candy and was done. We went to dinner at Steak and Shake with my family bec they were all starving from the FOREVER long show…I got a burger and choked it down and didn’t really eat any fries and no shake either.
Today – all I’ve had is a couple of cookies and a few more pieces of candy (nothing much at all) and had a Subway 6 inch. NO IHOP like planned. NO COLDSTONE like I wanted. Heck, I’m not even super thrilled for going to The Cheesecake Factory (my favorite favorite favorite restaurant) tonight. I’m excited to hang out with my friends but I’m not excited about the food at all. So strange. I’m seriously ready to get back in the gym lightly and just to normal tomorrow. I will probably still take tomorrow easy and off though to rest because I know I need it.
Now for some pictures….
