Trying on bathers can be daunting for anyone no matter what your size or shape.
It came the day today when I went to pick a swimsuit for the upcoming NABBA competition.
Now for those who haven’t seen a fitness competition or pictures of one, let me explain it to you. They are not like normal bathers! I walked in to look at pictures so I could have a pair made but then the owner pulled out a few pre-made ones so I tried them on.
They were tiny, a two piece (which is mandatory), Brazilian cut at the back and sit high above the hips. If you jump onto bodybuilding.com or Google fitness competitions you will see what I am talking about.
Although I have a good figure from training and eating well, as a woman we tend to judge and criticise our bodies at one time or another and this was the day for me! Yes even trainers have those days! I took a few deep breaths, a few turns in front of the mirror, relaxed and turned it into a positive. I now knew what I had to improve to reach my goal of entering the competition.
I walked away with a training plan in mind for the next few weeks and I ordered a red two piece with silver sparkles. Now for the shoes!
