Serious distractions... A BUSY WEEK.

Outside of the gym, I've got a few things going on, including 3 teaching jobs, applications/ auditions for MFA programs, a few volunteer gigs, planning my (rapidly) upcoming wedding and a dancing, acting and writing career. The last one has been the real kicker lately, as this week has been dress/tech/load-in week for my upcoming one-woman show, A WOMAN IN PROGRESS at La MaMa E.T.C's Club. Rehearsals have been grueling, but with the love and support of my colleagues and friends at Mind the Art Entertainment, it's been an enjoyable process. It has, however, been seriously damaging to my training schedule/ diet for the past 2 weeks. In a major, major way. I leave in the morning before the gym opens, and I return home after it's closed, and by that point, I'm inclined to simply crawl into bed and savor the precious few hours before I have to be back at the theatre. 

I was planning on competing in bikini on March 26th, which puts me at 9.5 weeks out. There's another show on April 9th which puts me 11.5 weeks out, but it's the Saturday before I get married.... 

What would you do?

Don't stress yourself out! Only you know yourself, if your wedding is good and planned then I'd do it. BUT if not and you're still stressing about the wedding... I'd skip it.
But again, only you know what you can handle. :)

I would say do what you feel you are ready to do. If all that you are doing is going to keep you from working out and dieting right, then I'd say put it off. Just prioritize. There were always be competitions that you can do, so if it needs to wait, it needs to wait, you know? And with a wedding coming up too, man you have a lot on your plate. If I were you, I'd look for competitions after your wedding. That way you're not putting so much pressure on yourself and you can enjoy your wedding day and eat and drink as you'd like! Just my two cents =)

I agree with the two posters above me. I think if it were me, I would choose the one in 9.5 weeks and then enjoy the time leading up to your wedding. That only happens once!

I would want to focus on my wedding, at least for that weekend. Wow! You are so busy, good luck with your show.

You can always consider shows that are after your wedding!
