In celebrating my 14 days away from the 'big day'...
|I am well aware I have long monkey arms lol|
|Ooh Ooh Ah Ah! |
Okay, I'll stop now ;)
There was loads to do on what would turn out to be one of the most memorable of days in my countdown towards my competition!
After celebrating Canada Day in the most Sweetest of FUshions (visually for me at least)...
Click here to see the July 1 FUstivities!
|The CuPcaKe Lounge|
|Tuna and Veggies :)|
I'd be FUeled with many FUn errands to run!
FUrst I went shopping...
|SuperFit surprised me with a controlled shopping spree...|
To buy clothes that actually FIT !
He gave me some Mooola (so I went out and spent it lol)
I've been struggling to find bottoms that don't fall off.
While I shopped...
SuperFit went biking...
Once I got back from my FUn filled spree...
It was time to go pick up my Posing Suit and Theme Wear from Joan MacDonald at Daydreams FitnessWear...
|007 joined in on the FUn!|
She too would be picking her
BAMMED out Suit!
Please take note of her grimace lol
|Making some FUnal touches :)|
|Excited about my *CaNdY* Liscious Posing Suit :)|
Joan creates each suit specific to each individual she works with!
Everything is truly custom made to FIT each competitor!
Needless to say...
She is outstanding at what she does and there is no questioning as to why she is the best there is!
|Thank you Joan! :)|
After we picked up our blinged out suits...
We ordered some FUries for the car ride home!
More like we got ourselves a Venti Ice Passion Tea while...
SuperFit picked up his Wheel from The Cyclery.
A Kamikaze bird FUlew into his wheel while riding...
resulting in the breakage of his spokes.
Once everything was said and done...
It was time for me to carb load!
It was time for me to carb load!
|Protein Pancakes: 4 Egg Whites, Oatmeal, Water|
A FU slices of Allegro Cheese and Basil Purée (10 cals)
BeFUre getting ready for...
My very FUrst Fitness FUTOshoot!
I didn't know what to bring so...
I brought everything!
As we both unpacked our things...
The FUtographer began to set up his equipment while I:
- Put on my first outfit;
- Pumped Up (with a FU exercises); and
- Posed for SuperFit.
|Striking a pose while everything was being put together!|
|It was the FUrst time I applied the Competition Tanning Cream...|
It took 15 minutes!
|Posing for SuperFit before we got started.|
As soon as the FUtographer was ready to shoot...
The camera didn't stop flashing!
Here are some of my FUvorites...
It FITS me better seeing I have a much larger head..
(We measured our head sizes using measuring tape lol)
|As Singer/Song Writer Adèle would say... |
|FUcosing. Not Sleeping.|
|Having a FU'in blast!|
Midway through our shoot...
FFA Competitor and friend: Nookie...
Joined in for a FU shots herself :)
|My FUvorite! :)|
Her Husband Matt and Son Mavee also had their turn...
We had a FUbulous time shooting!!!
It was such a rewarding experience FU me!
At times during my competition prep...
I went through Highs and Lows and...
Worried that perhaps I wasn't ready for the stage.
The FUtoshoot left me feeling:
1. Proud (for all the hard work I put in over the past 17 months);
2. Confident in my preparedness; and
3. Happy with my overall achievements.
That in itself...
Made me feel like a winner :)
I can't believe how much my body has changed over the past 1 1/2 years!
Not for one second...
Would I ever think of going back to my unhealthy lifestyle.
|Never putting any thought into |
what I was eating.
I want to continue eating right...
In both my Journeys of...
1. Re-discovering my physical side (and developing healthy eating habits); as well as
2. Preparing for a Competition.
There is no way I could ever revert back to the past, because....
I feel better than ever!
In the months leading up to where I am now...
I've developed a passion for Health and Fitness and...
I'm not about to stop...when I've only just begun :)
**Special Thanks to Chris Kiez for giving me the opportunity to get in FUront of the camera! I had a great time! This experience is deFUnitely one I will cherish for a lifetime!**
