Bikinis and other stuff

Posted: June 29, 2011 in Uncategorized

Halfway through the week and I have all but shaken off the dreaded germs. Just have the last snuffly part of it but physically am feeling fine.

I am at one of those stages with training where I am loving my time on the weights floor, well more than usual anyway. I am feeling pretty strong lately and have been really pushing myself on the gym floor. Cardio also isn’t too bad *at the moment* – I am not having to do hours of it per day right now and on my weights days it means I can walk home from work and that’s it – DONE. 

I have been really good on the food front – but smells are starting to get to me now for the first time in ages. Not everything but every now and again I will catch a waft of something like hot Maccas chips (French Fries for any of my American buddies) and it’s all I can seem to smell. I don’t even love hot chips!! It’s one of those things that I will pick at if they are sitting there or come on the side of a big fat juicy steak/burger/rack of ribs, but never actually go out of my way to order. Oh well I guess it just means the diet is kicking in.

I am trying to decide on bikini colours – I have already told the fabulous Jo that I need a ‘kini as she is about to close orders…so deposit will be happening today…eek! That’s when I know it’s real!! lol…Back to topic. At this stage I have it down to a marine blue colour (the shiny foil-looking lycra) or red (also shiny foil-looking lycra) or hot pink (ALSO shiny foil looking lycra) but so undecided. I had a gorgeous new bikini made by her last year (see pic), which I wore to the IFBB QLD titles but not the following week to the Nationals. I know they cost a lot BUT I don’t like wearing the same bikini 2 weeks running – not for vanity purposes but because I have done it once before and I found it hard to tell the difference in my photos!! If I do 2 comps, I don’t want to look identical at them!! SO – the plan this year, is new bikini for the QLD titles, and will wear the gorgeous suit Jo made last year to the Nationals. Everybody happy 🙂

Hmmm…there isn’t much else to tell at the moment, life has been pretty mundane…so on that note…ciao for now!

  1. If all the pictures in your gallery are of you (I’d have to look past the hairstyles to tell!) I would say go with red or pink. You seem to favor blues/greens and it might be a fun change to go in an opposite direction.

      They sure are 🙂 I am one of those people who likes to change my hair. A lot 😉
      Funnily enough I have actually had a red and a pink bikini before (just haven’t put the pics on my gallery page – should get onto that!!) but the red was more of a dull red (not shiny) and the pink was more of a lolly pink than “hot” pink… In saying that, I do think the shiny red is winning in my mind at the moment 🙂

    Vic, you know for some reason hot pink is jumping out at me – your Nats kini is gorgeous and I think the pink would provide a good contrast!

    • PrincessVic says:

      Hot pink you reckon?? I have always admired the hot pink on stage…so torn!!
      But yep I think you are right – need to steer away from too similar to the Nats ‘kini 🙂

  3. Steph says:

    I vote red!! I think it would suit you and your blonde hair 🙂 I love the blue but think its been overdone a bit. tough choice isn’t it! xox

    • PrincessVic says:

      Yep – it is so hard Steph!! Such a big decision. But you are right, so many do the different shades of blue, and even aqua I am finding at the moment. In saying that at the Asia Pacs there was also a lot of pink so maybe red is the way to go…?
      Bloody decisions!!

    I was tossing up between Blue and Pink and went HOT pink hehe i think red would look really nice on you Vic. Glad you are feeling better chickadee xo P.S thanks again for your kind words on my blog the other day xo

  5. KerryW says:

    Yeah…HOT PINK for sure! 😉

    • PrincessVic says:

      Lol…every time I read a new comment I get more torn!!!
      Think I am gonna have to flip a coin, but it’s definitely down to being between red and hot pink 🙂

  6. Sandra says:

    For what it’s worth – RED!!!
