All Night Cram Session?

When I was in high school I avoided my Algebra homework like the plague.  I wouldn’t do any of the assignments until they were due, which was the day of the unit test.  The night before almost every single test you could find me up until 3 or 4 am trying to graph numbers and letters and find what the true meaning of ‘X’ really is.

I put it off because I hated it and I knew I could get by with the help of a few all night cram sessions.

I graduated with a C- average in math.

Suddenly my competition is around the corner, in 5 sleeps to be exact, and I think an all night Algebra-esque event may be called for…

I have tons of things organized and ready to go:

Ummm….I am missing a check….

Half the battle is won by posing.  You could have the best physique on stage, but if you don’t know how to make it obvious to the judges all the hard work is not going to pay off.  I have definitely been practicing, but I just can’t seem to get the hang of it.  Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that I grew up reading books.  Flaring your lats and flexing all your muscles at once doesn’t come naturally to a girl who spent all her recesses in the library to avoid having to play soccer and kickball.

Starting tomorrow it is posing practice all of the time…or as much time as I can get in without scaring other people.  If you see me in the grocery store line up buying egg whites and vegetables with my butt stuck out, lats flared, and a grimace on my face that is supposed to pass as a smile, don’t be afraid – just give me some feedback!

Its game time and I am NOT going to settle for a C- for my first show.

  1. The posing might show off the muscles but it sure looks awkward and unnatural.

  2. I wish you the best of luck. I am a natural bodybuilder from South Africa, and I hope you stay drug-free. I am 45 years old and still improving!

  3. Maybe you could stay inside all day tomorrow – less of a chance of freaking people out. You could practise infront of the mirror, infront of the mailboxes, infront of your husband, infront of the fridge, on the balcony. The list goes on and on…you can do it!
