Well guys, yesterday honestly feels so surreal. The day is done, the day I prepped 16 long weeks for was more than I expected, I didn't place for all those who are asking but in a huge class of nearly 20 ladies I'm not disappointed at all.
This rant is going to be pretty long, cause I'm feeling all the post show feels and emotions right now. There we so many times along the way I questioned myself for doing this. Getting up at 5am to do cardio, watching my family eat Easter treats and dinner without me; but after yesterday I know it was the right choice for me, I LOVED it, the stage, the ladies, the atmosphere, how absolutely supportive every single person was. It was like a weird family being with and meeting all those ladies. I felt so at home, with ladies (and gents) pulling Tupperware containers out of there bags and eating cold chicken and veggies and no one even giving a second look, haha.
If you know me, I am competitive, I like to win, to be the best at everything, which was part of why I decided to compete to begin with, to get that extra little competitive edge into something I already loved doing, cause with no longer having hockey in my life something just felt missing. And I am happy to say I found what it is. That being said you're probably like "but Emily, you didn't win". No, and honestly I'm not the least bit disappointed, going into my first show my main goal was just to look like I belonged there, and I definitely succeeded in that. I feel so accomplished just knowing that I did something at a level so few people will ever be able to do or even understand. Now that I know what to expect I have so much motivation and drive to absolutely kill it, and step on the stage in 2 weeks at #idfalooking even better! 😘
Thank you to @npaasport for an amazing 1st show experience and @impactnutritionandfitness for the guidance along the way and not putting up with any of my nonsense. #teamimpact #npaa
