Man, time is seriously creepin’ up on me! I’m 16 weeks out, starting my diet, and absolutely needing help in the posing department!
I just wrote the check for my NPC Card. $120! Can you believe that?! It expires by the end of the year too, holy crap. I was talking to Derek about it last night and was tossing around the idea of competing in MORE competitions to get my money’s worth out of this NPC Card. Of course we got on the topic of money and how we would afford it and that threw me into a whirlwind of stress. Mind you, we were talking about it IN bed right before shut-eye, as you can imagine I didn’t get very much sleep.
Last night I kept tossing and turning, stressin’ and sweatin’, dreaming about money, dieting, and back poses. Obsessed much? I asked my husband yesterday to wake me up and make sure I’m out of bed this morning at 4am when he gets up so I could go to the gym. I used the excuse that I didn’t get any sleep and reluctantly he stopped persisting. Of course I’m feeling guilty now for a variety of reasons:
A) He really REALLY hates waking me up when I ask him to and I proceed to fight him off in the morning
B) I didn’t go to the gym, I’m 16 weeks out, and making a poor excuse like that just SHOWS that maybe I should only be doing one competition anyways, I’m not dedicated enough to get my ass out of bed on zero sleep and get shit done
……. *Le siiiiighhhh*
Well screw that, the rest of the week is gonna be AWESOME! Derek and I have a session scheduled for this Saturday, he’s going to show me some new material, and teach me how to set up the TRX so I can use it at home or at the gym. He has also been EXTREMELY supportive of the dieting phase, even though it’s just beginning. He’s eating healthy with me too and not shoving pasta in my face…. yet 😉
I have a photo shoot planned with a good friend of mine who I’ve worked with for years on February 22nd. Motivation to get lean! He is an AMAZING photographer, you should definitely check out his site and portfolio: TheAfterHourPhoto.com. His name is Amir Zahed and he actually shot my wedding 2 years ago. He’s a super creative, hilarious, and artistic guy.
The beginning of March marks my 8 weeks out point, so that’s when I will begin doing my two-a-days. Wondering how that one’s gonna work out. I will be working out 6 days a week, twice a day, taking the 7th day as an ‘active rest day’, so doing hot yoga to stretch out the tight muscles and detox the body.
Getting really nervous! Time is FLYING! I’m no longer itching for the day to come sooner, realizing how much work needs to be done, and how I need to get my head in the game to dominate this! I would LOVE to compete in more than one competition this year, but in order to do so, I need to give at least 110% starting NOW!
On that note, I need help with a new workout playlist. If anyone has suggestions, please, please, PLEASE leave a comment with some of your favorite heart pumping tunes! Need some of that motivation to get me going in the AM. I’m doing this comp with zero supplements, zero pre-workout, and zero fat burners, so I need all the help I can get!
Thanks a million! XOXO…..
