I’m 8 weeks out today….and feeling pretty good about where I am at. Yes, there is still progress to be made, things to gradually tighten up in the diet, etc. but overall I am happy with this prep so far. I will admit that I haven’t made a TON of change over the past few weeks due to a few things that were out of my control. For those of you who don’t know – one week I was very sick and had to focus on regaining my health, then the next week my daughter was in the HOSPITAL for 4 days where I had no gym access or complete prep food (and Im not about to leave my 10 month old baby to worry about competition stuff of course), and then we had friends from out of town and I refused to be super anal with them here. My goals for this competition are simply to grace that stage and learn in the process. Yes, I want to do my best, but I will not sacrifice my health or happiness in the process and do not expect to be the best up there this first time around. So, with that in mind, I am a’liking what I see considering the past few weeks. 8 weeks is still a good amount of time, I don’t feel like I’m behind really, and I plan to bring things 100% from here on out. Let’s do this!
Note: 12 Weeks Out shots are to the left and 8 Weeks Out shots are to the right. I decided to start doing my pictures outside in natural light because inside the light always screws things up. Please excuse the lack of tan and how it washes me out! LOL Of course any comments, advice, etc is always always welcome 🙂
