WOW!!! This is it....

It's been a whirlwind. I can't believe we are already at the end of the road.

Day 2 and FINALS have arrived.

To keep you occupied in the meantime I have a little photo review of the happenings here in the BIG LV: 1. My last workout before the event. 2. The crew 3. Getting tanned/painted... thanks Fra! 4. Yet another bowl of oatmeal 5. Photo shoot by the pool 6. A pic of ALL the competitors by the pool 7. Pumping up back stage 8. My "athletic" suit 9. My bikini

My energy is getting low. As much as I've trained and prepped and on and on I am getting tired. Carbs are the greatest things and I can't wait to have them back in my life.

Let's give it one more push through today...

I'd like to hear a communal WOOOHOOOOO!

The Very Tanned and Tired,

You are such an amazing woman and inspiration to all. While I enjoy all your photos I think the one with all the competitors by the pool is the most powerful. This photos to me proves/shows that their are people who are fit and look great and its not just the people on the magazine covers that look that way. It brings a sense of reality to me especially when I am surrounded by mostly overweight/obese people including myself. It lets me know that this can be done, and its real. I can't wait for the day when I can put on a bikini and stand proud with the rest of the fit people instead of holding my head down in the overweight category. Congrats to you for all your success. I enjoy your blog so much...

You are such a huge inspiration to me. When the times get cold and foggy (as it does quite often in St. John's) and I get down. I come to your blog and am instantly inspired!

Can't wait to watch the competition :) You've worked hard, and I'll be rooting for you.
