Blinded by the bling...

So here I sit blogging while my Bling Man Extraordinaire calmly places each stone one by one on the bottom of my bikini....

He always makes me wear it when he starts so the stones are placed according to how the suit fits me..... This is the one reason why he does sometimes think this could be a great job... If he ever did this for other women they would have to stand perfectly still and read a book while he stuck stones on their bum...

Once he is happy with the start of the pattern I am casts aside and he then works away on it without me.... I have no say in the patterns or even the colour of the stones. I actually had the cheek to make a suggestion today which was greeted with a frown, a head shake, and then an instruction to turn slowly.. obviously my suggestion wasn't even worth a comment LOL

Trained legs and abs yesterday then went to DFO for a quick look... came back with two little numbers for wearing out at night.... I still get a huge buzz when I try on size 10 dresses and they fit!!! Actually I still get a buzz from being able to try on anything and have it fit nicely. Well now I have to little grey numbers and I will have to wait for after the comp to wear them LOL..

Got caught out without a meal and ended up just waiting till we got home, which was a 6 hour break without food!!! By the time we got home the dogs were lucky I didn't eat them... still when I looked at what was available out and about it was safer to wait!!!! Never again though, I will always make sure I have my cooler bag and food with me from now on... I only felt better when I saw Dan Carter playing rugby and that just took my mind off everything... yum!!! Oh and of course winning the Bledisloe cup cheered me up... YAY!

Did a bit of housework then laid in the sun most of today, wandered the waterfront for a takeaway coffee - well green tea actually, then back home so BME cold begin his blinging...

And now its time to go and prepare the food for tomorrow.... Changing m training program tomorrow for the 8 week countdown to the comp... So I am looking forward to CHEST tomorrow.. bring it on... or should that be Bling it on.. LOL

i can just imagine BME, concentrating and planning as he creates his artwork for you. i watched a discovery channel show last night on figure comp in USA. most mentioned the diet and that they carry chicken breasts in their purses. they cant leave home without food. its amazing how much proper fuel the body needs when you dial in muscle and metabolism. bravo witchazel, you are kick ass incredible.

its beautiful weather here too. sunday AM currently, thinking we'll go find a dead tree and enjoy the sun..you'll be with us in spirit :) xoxo!!
