A BODYBUILDER'S DIARY: SHOW WEEK
by Kristyn Lia
One week to go!!!
The last week of prep is odd. You are probably getting photo shoots and hair extensions, nails and tan. Trying to beautify.. but somehow trying to train... and not ruin the hair, nails and tan.
My hair extensions are EPIC to dry.. so I'm trying to wash them as little as possible. But being in the gym everyday certainly makes this hard.. and OH MY GOD washing them the day before comp without wetting the tan.. then drying them is way too hectic for me!
I never spent more then 5 to 10 mins on my hair and face before.... argghh!!!
It's worth it though. Photos and videos last a life time... and in a week I can go back to being a scruff and ditch the glam.
The countdown is on.. 1 week. All the training, dieting, hunger, sleepless nights, the emotion, exhaustion, exhilaration, extensive beauty routines all come down to about 15 minutes onstage with just me, my thoughts, my routine and my body.
15 minutes.. that are yours forever.
