Cut her food down to something else. I would look on smartpak to see if they have a food that can make your horse fit. Work your horse and don't give them a lot of side food
I'd agree with Lorraine! Two weeks is not enough time if she's extremely unfit, especially for speed showing! It's quite unfair to expect her to do this and could lead to her straining or injuring herself!
2 weeks is not long enough to get her fit. I'd cancel and start to get her fit now and book in for another later.
Try to trot her over poles and do lots of circles and if you have hills do some hill work and after 3-4 days start to jump gymnastics and then add jumps as she starts to get back to jumping
hill work to build up butt muscle and working in deep footing (probably not always the best option) helped to build muscle very quickly in my tb gelding!
Uhhhh, maybe some lunging!

Gallop her around the arena?
