Felicia Romero joined us in Las Vegas for our cover tries only two days out from the big competition. We got the scoop on how she prepares for the event of the year...
What did you eat for breakfast two days out from the competition:
Today I ate 4 oz tilapia, 1/4 cup oats and 1 tbsp almond butter. I know it sounds yummy (haha!) but I don’t mix it all together!
For the day of the show I will eat a 4 oz piece of steak, 1/4 cup dry oats and 1 tbsp almond butter.
How do you prepare mentally for your events?
To prepare for the show I do a lot of visualization. I imagine myself on stage. I also listen to music that’s going to help me through my cardio – Kanye West’s “Stronger” for example!
Strangest thing you’ve seen backstage?
Strangest thing I’ve seen is girls taking shots of vodka before going up on stage. Wow I’m not a drinker and if I did that I would be stumbling on the stage, LOL!
Most embarrassing moment on stage?
Most embarrassing moment on stage is when I won my pro card at the NPC USA’s. I had a huge piece of hair sticking up from too much hairspray and it’s in all the pictures!
My proudest moment was placing top 5 at the Arnold two years in a row.
What are you goals going into the 2010 Olympia this year?
My goal is to be as confident as I can and I know that I gave my 110% going in. The rest is out of my hands!!!
