Wow! Back to my usual day to day life, but with a 3rd placing Bikini Class British Final under my belt. I am absolutely chuffed to bits with my achievement! 🙂
Friday I headed up to Nottingham and made myself at home in the Hilton, which was lovely. A little bit different from my usual weekend away, with best part of the evening spent strutting around in heels practicing posing, tanning up and all other girlie essential things that needed doing before hopping on stage. My food was all prepared, and a few cheats thrown in for Sunday!
Nottingham was a sea of tanned people, mostly a tasteful shade of Orange shall we say! It was a bag of mixed emotions, mostly excitement.. with a side portion of anxiety lol Which is to be expected before stepping on stage in front of hundreds of people!
Saturday went really well and I was pleased to be through to the final 10 Bikini girls for the Sunday! So after watching some of the show, Saturday night was spent relaxing in good company. No partying like most people who were up there! Early night for me, watching TV in bed! It was bliss though and I had an undisturbed full 8 hours sleep, which rarely happens!
So I was like a bottle of pop Sunday morning, up getting ready for the second and final round!
I was over the moon to be placed 3rd in my first British Final in what was apparently a very hard class to judge, with Bikini being in it’s first year in the UK, it wasn’t an easy job for the judges, and every girl looked different but good in her own way I thought! Well done and congratulations to all the other girls in the class, they all looked amazing!
Thank you to people who supported me, it’s so nice to hear your name being screeched from the crowd, quite a surreal experience really, as I’m sure anyone who has competed will agree with me. When all eyes are on you and you’re being marked on what you’ve achieved in the gym over the past few months or even years, it’s a strange situation, but a good one at that! Top buzz!
I’m sure next year will have even more Bikini competitors as it will grow more and more popular because it is such an all round healthy sought after look for women. Thank you for all your help and encouragement Nathan, Helen and Rhod.
And the excitement doesn’t finish there! I have been invited down to Panthers Gym tomorrow where I will be involved in a photo shoot with Kev Horton! Which I’m sure will be amazing! So although I had a cheat (Krispy Kremes) after the show.. I haven’t gone overboard because I need to look good for the shoot!
Thanks again for all your support, feel very privileged to be part of Team Gaspari UK.
Lots of love
