OK count down has started… 9 weeks left until the competition date.
So the April date didn’t materialize, the competition will be held on Jun 16 (about 9 weeks away).
If there’s one think I’d like to share with folks: tell as many people about your goal as you can, it’ll help you stick to it when it gets tough. Honestly, if I hadn’t told so many people I was doing this, I would of quit & had a glass of wine!
For me, the process has it’s up and down. I love the training, the diet is OK — i feel energized most of the time but look forward to the day when I can have a cappuccino and a muffin.
It’s hard work preparing for this & more difficult than I expected it to be.
I had reached a plateau with fat loss and broke it with a rapid fat loss diet & increasing the intensity of my training. I’m at about 13% body fat, my weight fluctuates quite a bit but hangs around 117 lbs. I’ve had the competition suit on twice in as many weeks. Every time I put it on, I’m terrified by 1) how much work I still have to do and 2) the fact that I present myself on stage in this thing….. & how much I’d like a frikin’ muffin!
