I took Erin with me. There were 7 of us total. The other ladies, including Stephanie, are all doing the Mohegan Sun Fitness America show at the end of April; 5 weeks out & carb rotating.
We did a warm-up & a functional like you see in the videos--crazy Savage Camp stuff. The room was really small (Wendy's group ex room is CAVERNOUS by comparison) & had poor ventilation. I'm used to stuffy gyms but Erin is used to working out at home & not pushing as hard as she did yesterday. About 30 minutes in she felt like she was going to throw-up so she had to leave the room.
We chatted about our meal plans. Hey, Wendy, no one complained! Lol We're all eating the same stuff. We talked about how our skin reacts to different fats...Udos. Not good. A couple of us have had bad skin reactions.
The ladies were disappionted when I said I'm only a "lifesyle" girl; "Oh you are so close to the right weight." They were really encouraging & talked about all of the support they get as they prepare.
I came away with a few realizations...
a) I will go back. Probably only once a month but I will go back.
b) I want to compete. I think I'm ready.
c) I want to compete. I'm ready. I can do it.
d) I am going to compete this summer. I need to find a show.
