Before we get all saucy, let me say that this post is not for anyone under 18 years of age.
***So any little munchkins, stop reading here***
This will be my first bikini competition on October 10th (just 3 days away!) and there are some things that have come up along the way that no one really told me about. I don’t know if we should call them secrets, but generally, everyone seems to tip-toe around the subject.
You might have pooping issues.
Gross. I realize. But it’s the truth. When you eat a diet that is high fiber/low fiber or high in protein and high in fat, sometimes things can get a little backed up; especially during peak week when water is cut back. So don’t freak out if you can’t go! You can take a stool softener (do NOT take a laxative) and try to just deal. It’s normal!
You probably won’t have
much any sex.
My poor husband has been so patient but I feel terrible. It’s true though. I’m either soooooo tired or there just aren’t enough hours in the day by the time I get all my workouts in, work, take care of Quinn, shower (3x), food prep and whatever else needs to be done. Some women/men may even notice they have low libido during training or as competition gets closer which can be normal, too. Three more days and then it’s date night! #winkwink #DevilFaceEmoji
Plan on bearing it all.
I realized that my pre-competition spray tan would need to really cover everything since the bikini is so small, but I wasn’t really aware that I wouldn’t get myown spray closet. You will probably be in a robe and some other girls might see you naked (including your spray professional) during the process. Just so ya know!
I know these things seem super petty and probably insignificant, but it’s just a few things that have come up along the way that no one really told me about. I guess the moral of the story here is: get comfortable being uncomfortable!
Kidding. But not really.
We gotta learn to just enjoy the ride!
Wish me luck!
