Peak Week

This whole not sleeping thing is really getting on my nerves.

I am exhausted.

You would think that I would crash the second my head hits the pillow after fifteen gym sessions in one day.

Instead, I toss.... and I turn... and I pose.... and I walk.... and I pose (all in my head of course, not in my bed.... yet).

It. Is. Ridiculous.

Yet, put me on a couch around 2 pm and I am out like a light.

Insomnia... one more week and you better disappear!

The worst part is... when I FINALLY do fall asleep around 1 or later I am up, WIDE awake at 6 am. WTH is wrong with me? This was AFTER taking melatonin to eventually fall asleep and I was awoken with a headache. Just kill me now!

On a happier note, tomorrow begins peak week. This is THE only part (aside from getting on stage) that I actually look forward to in prep. This is the week where everything that you have worked your hiney off for... shows. The week where dramatic, yes very dramatic things happen to your body. You wake up with a perfect 6 pack, your skin looks tight and firm, its the most amazing thing EVER!

Yay for peak week!


  1. heres to a happy,stress free peak week!

  2. Aww well not long to go! I've heard the insomnia is crazy during contest prep, so I'm not looking forward to that. Enjoy peak week and make sure you take lots of photos!

  3. Best of luck on your show and journey!!! How exciting for you to be doing this!

  4. Yay for peak week indeed! Go get it. :D

  5. Congrats on making it to peak week! Maybe you are not sleeping because you are over training. A classic symptom is insomnia. I got this in college and right when I stopped working out so intense and so much I was able to sleep like a baby! Plus not to mention you are probably really excited! I bet you sleep like a baby Saturday if not Sunday night! Only days away!!!!!

  6. Wow, I can't believe you're in peak week already! Crazy! I'm SO excited for you. Here's to a great peak week and sleep!
