I have been neglecting my blog. I've been thinking too much, questioning things too much, a lot of things have been going on in my wacky wacky brain. I will spare you all the nitty gritty details, but I'm pulling out of the March show and am going to focus on the off-season. This is what I need to do.
I did not drop enough fat. Simply put. Some things just aren't meant to be. Pre-existing plans, my budget, and my unwillingness to travel to compete makes a slightly later show date impossible. I would be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed, but it is what it is. Bummer.
I'm going to try to concentrate on the silver lining: The first fall show is smaller, closer, and more convenient. There are also shows soon after that are within less than 3 hour driving distance. More importantly, I did get lean enough to see what body parts are really lagging behind. Now I can spend more time working on those. I can do some damage in 3 months worth of building. :-)
Peace, Love, and Chicken Grease.
