This is IT!!!!

It's here!!!! I'm frantically working trying to get all the last loose ends tied up, my To-Do list is a monster with a whip, lol, but I'm gonna get it all done. It's been such an amazing journey, and I'm so very grateful to all of you who've traveled the road with me. 26 weeks, and my show is tomorrow. I am a different person than the one who started out on this path. When the show is over, I'll do a more in depth post and share more, but today I just wanted to quickly thank you all. The messages, posts, emails... you've no idea how much they've meant to me!

Tab came over last night and we put together my show day bag, planned out (and practiced) my makeup (she's amazing with those fake lashes!), and today includes:
Last cardio! Grocery shopping, odds & ends shopping for showday, Posing & pictures, laundry, Godiva (gotta buy those post-show treats - I already picked up the Tammie Coe cookies!), Tanning, TONS of email/work related stuff, packing, charging various electronics, then this evening Tab's coming by to watch Pumping Iron with us :-)  Awesome!!

I'm excited, I'm lean, I'm hungry, I'm hairless (lol!), and I'm about to be tanned to Oompa-Loompah levels. Wooohoo!!

I have to say it again. Sorry.

Wooooohoooooo!!!!!!!!
