As usual, Monday’s are my off day from training, did Qi Gong, and Low Intensity Steady State (LISS) cardio this am, refilled my herbal formulas and have food prepped for the week.
I will be offering a handful of proprietary and custom herbal formulas on the new store, and am currently using one of both, which in my opinion is why I have been able to drop a few stubborn readings.
I’m going to continue on the same program for another week and then really focus on dropping my caliper readings a low as possible but my supra iliac reading did make it two 5.5 yesterday which is low for me. I don’t think it’s been that low in 10 years the bad news is it’s going to have to go lower if I want to reach my goal.
A day off from training also allowed me some time to work on the some of the show details like travel, hotel room and the fashion aspects. I did some shopping this weekend and still have some items to pull together but it’s great to live in a city like Chicago with so many options.
Mallory, one of my teammates on the Journey to the Stage is also going through the fashion process at the moment, a more daunting task for the women I’m sure but I like the pieces she has pulled together so far.
I had a chat with Shaun Stafford today who knows a thing or two about prepping for WBFF shows, he is getting ready for the big London show in two weeks and had some helpful comments for a stage newbie like me. One of the biggest draws to the WBFF as a league is the fashion component and the marketability – so we might as well put as much preparation and planning into the fashion as we do the nutrition and training – we shall see how it turns out. Again thank you for all the support and kind words.
