My First Figure Competition Pics

Monday, April 23, 2012

So, I completed my first figure competition last weekend. I was soooooo nervous! I was ok until I hit the stage, then I felt like I was shaking, but apparently it wasn't as bad as I thought. My friends were in the front row behind the judges and they couldn't see me shaking. After watching the video I'm pretty pleased with myself. I looked pretty poised in the line up and my T walk went relatively well. I was so nervous that I couldn't remember if I actually did everything I was supposed to do...but I did. :) I didn't place in the top 5 like I had hoped, but that's ok. I learned a lot. I'm still waiting on the judges notes, but I know areas I want to improve. I need to lean out my thighs some more. I want to build my shoulders, hamstrings, and calves and create better symmetry across my body both left to right and top to bottom. Despite these improvements I want to make I am happy with the way I looked on stage. I wasn't self-conscious at all, which is a HUGE accomplishment for me. I'm pretty comfortable in my own skin normally, but I would have never had the guts to get up in front of a crowd and be judged on my body before.
Here are some pics:

So, now that this competition is over I am trying to decide when I should compete again. I would really like to this year, but I need to evaluate my financial situation because competing is an expensive hobby. I also need to evaluate my time because it is a commitment. I was back in the gym today, and I am pretty much back to clean eating. I did take the weekend off from both. I'm happy to be getting back to my routine.
