9 Weeks out....

Well I am 9 weeks out and have decided to give myself the day off, before I really kick it into high gear. I am tired and my body is telling me so. Actually it is my feet and shins! LOL!!!!

No it is really just that sometimes you need a break and I need one right now. I probably should wait till next week since I am having lasik and probably wont want to do anything then either.....but today is the day and I will push through next week.

Other than that I have been spot on diet and training, however the weight is not moving...I look leaner, but the scale isnt saying I am! O-well life goes on and the show is still over 2 months away! I have time!

I guess for now that is enough......I never have much to say...not sure why I started a blog life is busy, but dull.!

Its Official.........12 Weeks out Today!!!!!!

Well it is time to get cracking!!! Today I am officially 12 weeks out or should I say 3 months out (kind of scares me with the smaller number!), from my first comp of the year! I am feeling really confident! This morning I weighed in at 136.5 and 12.8% BF. I can for sure get down to my goal of 4-5% by May. I have scrubbed the house and all the bad trigger foods are gone. I kept my peanut butter, for those days that I just cant stand it anymore, but it is the good kind.....Naturally more with Flax oil. I love this stuff it is soooooo yummy 169 calories, 10 g of protein, 8 g of carbs, but 4 of them are fiber! So for 1 Tbsp it is 85 cals, 5 g protein, and 4 (or 2 if you subtract the fiber) g of carbs. Not a bad cheat if you have to ease a craving!

Today for me is cardio only. 1/2 hour on the treadmill and another 1/2 hour on the stepper. It will go by quick....then I need to focus on my posing routine. I have had two songs mixed. The first is Decode by Paramore and the second is Supergirl by Saving Jane. I am not sure which I am going to use just yet. I am required to do a 90 second posing routine now so I really need to work on this. 60 seconds seemed like forever now I have to fill another 30 seconds with poses!!! I am sure I will figure it out!

Well breakfast is down the hatch, I guess I better get moving and head to the gym.....cardio don't get done on its own!!!

Injured today! :0(

Well today I was all hyped up and excited because I got my computer back! Been without it now for 3 days and I now realize that I am addicted to my computer and my online community of friends!

My day had a turn for the worse! I was doing my chest workout finished doing decline flys, worked my way over to the smith machine did all 5 sets of flat bench presses and even hit a personal record of 120lbs for six, and then I set up for incline presses, had 70lbs on the bar, lifted it up had no problem for three reps, then number four, and whamoo!!! A massive pain, not sure if it was a tear, a stretch, a bone going in the wrong direction or what but I couldn't move for about 5 minutes. I couldn't even lift my head up! It took everything I had to not ball my eyes out right there in the gym! I managed to get up get changed, and call my chiropractor who got me in as soon as he could. 2:30 came and he advised me that I had torn a ligament on my C7 (whatever exactly that meant), all I know is that he made it sound that the C7 was not a very good place to have out of whack! So I was adjusted and told to ice it for 15 minutes every hour. And to come back on Saturday. I was also told that if it hurts or pulls at all to stop what I am doing and ice it. So I am currently de-railed! It is a good thing I am still over 14 weeks out!

Called Tony to let him know about it too, and he said he was posting a leg workout for me tomorrow so I can rest it, and let the muscles recover!

Okay enough sob is bed time! Till we meet again........

Jan 8, has been a really off day!

Not sure why but today has been really off. I have been having really bad headaches and a stiff neck. I only started to feel this way after I returned home from Vegas for a new years mini vacation. I am sure it is just that I am overly tired, but it has really thrown off my day. I am not one to complain, but I hate missing a workout or a meal......crazy I know but it is the honest to god truth!

I am just over 20 weeks out from my first Pro level competition and I am really starting to freak out about it. I know I will be ready, but the idea of actually flying and spending all that money to get to an event is making me focus more on being 100% and coming in, in the best shape I possibly can!

I have added some muscle I know that, and because of the mass, I have added some weight......I know in Bodybuilding adding weight can be good, but it scares me, that it isnt the good solid quality muscle under that fat that I am hoping it to be!

I am probably over analyzing everything but that is part of being a perfectionist....I want perfection! That is why I am so "anal" about my diet and exercise plan. I have to be 100% all the time or I feel I have failed. I do not want to fail...........

I would love to have you all check out this link that Tony sent! Thanks!
