This Saturday I attended a workshop in Watertown, Ma:
I almost didn’t attend, but am so glad that I did. I really have no idea what I am getting myself into here with all this competition stuff and this was the perfect opportunity to get my feet wet without actually stepping on stage nearly naked.
I learned quite a bit about what being a figure competitor entales. See the woman on the right? That’s Gen Strobo, a top figure competitor who has numerous titles under her bikini bottom. I, being the cool kid, asked for a picture with Gen, mistakenly calling her Nicole. Why? I have no idea. I was like a nervous little school girl. She gladly posed with me and as you can see is perfection.
I left the workshop feeling inspired, a little more confident knowing what was expected of me, and full of ideas. Do I join Team Bombshell and have a network of support or continue to try and do this on my own? Do I sew my own suit or save money and buy a suit that is designed for figure competing but sells for a minimum of $250? Am I going to want breast implants if I continue on this road? How do I perfect my stage presence? Lol. First I need to create a stage presence and stop being so nervous. It’s all about confidence!
I was starving afterwards so I whipped up this delicious salad:
