Eye of the Tiger

I am now 3 weeks from the competition and each week seems to deal out new crazy challenges. I am really trying to enjoy it and stay tough, but honestly it’s a challenge to just behave as a normal human being these days. My workouts have advanced to lifting 5x/week and cardio 3x/week- not so difficult for normal Jessica, but quite brutal for carb-deprived Jessica. Last week I experienced my first freak out- seriously, it was bad. I don’t know what happened, but I went from stage exhaustion to stage anger. I am trying to forewarn people now. So if I haven’t told you, here it is- I cannot be held responsible for my actions in the next 20 days. They will range from extreme stupidity to total range. And they will be like this damn NC weather- totally unpredictable.

Alright, so enough negativity, time for some happy thoughts. First off, I booked a photo shoot for April 18 (2 days after the competition before I get all fat and sassy). Also, I have been compiling a list of the foods I will be enjoying after the show. Here are just a few:

1. Peanut Butter (quite possibly the entire jar(s))
2. Peanut M&M’s
3. Pizza (lots of cheese and meat- especially, especially BACON)
4. Bacon- the real kind, none of that turkey bacon or soy shit
5. Mexican food from the whole-in-the-wall place in Cary where they don’t speak any English
5. Cheeseburger (with Bacon!!!!!!!!!!)
6. REAL pancake with REAL syrup and REAL butter
7. Chocolate donut holes
8. Cookies- I don’t discriminate, chocolate chip, raisin, oreos, peanut butter….I love them all
9. Cereal- again I accept any and all kinds
10. Macaroni and cheese with bacon- never had but it sounds really amazing right now

I’ll stop there before I go into a food porn binge. Anyways, so yea…..expect to see me gorging myself for a few days after this is over. Until then, I am going to appreciate my new-found abs in the smallest bikini ever (according to LA- my figure suit is currently being blinged up)

  1. I know this post is a year old, but I found it because I am currently feeling your pain. I am 1 1/2 weeks away from my first NPC Bikini Competition. I’ve already MapQuested the nearest ice cream shop to my hotel!
