Bikini Show Prep Update #7

Posted on March 14, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

So last Thursday I had a momentary freakout.  I was so frustrated with not being allowed to eat what I want, when I want.  I was having major sweet cravings.  I was tired and I was frustrated with how my body felt.  It was TOM.

Well I got through Thursday by just going to bed and Friday wasn’t my best day either, but I had a long conversation with someone I know who has competed and he helped me a lot.

We talked a lot about how my body looks now in comparison to how it looked 6 weeks ago.  We talked about how important it is to follow my nutrition plan because that’s going to be 99% of where my tightening up will come from.  And he helped me realize that food is simply fuel.  I know it is, but sometimes I just need to have someone else tell me so I can reiterate it for myself.

I am now no longer allowed to eat banana in the morning at breakfast and I’m only allowed fruit in my breakfast, mid-am and pre-workout snack, 1/4 cup each serving.

I want strawberry cake with icing like you would not believe.

And my workout changed for the month.  Friday when I was at the gym I had a trainer come help me kick it up a notch.  Even though I am a trainer, it helps to have someone there to push you to your limit.  Turns out, my shoulders protrude really far forward.  This I know, due to years of sitting behind a desk, but when I was doing my tricep cable pulldowns he held my shoulders back in place where they were supposed to be and to my dismay I had to take the weight down from 30 lbs to 15 lbs!!!!  It’s reasons like this that is it good to have someone else there to notice the things you won’t.

This happened Friday and as of Monday afternoon, my triceps are still sore!!!!!!

I also ordered my shoes this week.  Sunday I am going to a posing class so I have to learn to walk in these bad boys…

But I’m mostly excited to meet other Savage girls who are competing.  I love following a lot of other girls on Facebook who are competing.  Seeing their statuses about how much they want to eat a whole cake too helps me realize I’m not the only one here.  And then seeing all the pros update their statuses with the most gorgeous photos of themselves helps too when I am having a moment or weakness.  But then again it’s hard to see that too because I can’t help but compare myself to them and then feel crappy about myself.

But now I’m going to tell you exactly why I feel awesome about myself…

I have not had an alcoholic beverage in 2 weeks.

If you have ever gone without drinking for an extended period of time, you know the feeling I have right now.  If you haven’t gone more than a few days without drinking, I highly recommend it.  I feel smarter.  I know that’s weird, but I really feel like my shit is together.  I feel very clear-headed.. I feel like I can’t think faster.  It’s weird.  I also feel thinner.  Alcohol makes you feel so dumpy and low-energy and fat and bloated.  It has a lot of bad effects anyway, like it makes you retain water, dehydrated, turns to sugar in your bod, makes food turn to fat and eats muscle.  I haven’t touched it since Florida and I still don’t want it.  I even went to a bar Sunday while my friends drank and I had ice water and I was fine.

Speaking of which, I have to brag for a second.. I ran a 5k in 25:00 yesterday 🙂  That’s a time I can be happy with.

So without further ado.. here are my progress pics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And yes I changed to a different bikini, but this isn’t my show bikini.  I just switched to one that is more similar to what the show ones are like.  I feel like it’s more honest and I can get a better idea of how I’ll look on the big day.  I don’t know if there’s a huge difference between last week and this week but I can tell you I feel a heck of a lot better.

And I’m psyched because I booked my make up artist and hair stylist!!!!!!  Her name is Bre Welch and she’s pretty much the shit.  She’s a really good friend of mine and she has such an amazing resume, and I know will give me the exact look I’m going for.  More than anything it means so much to me to be able to have one of my best friends back stage with me as I prepare for the stage. ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!

 

PS. If you haven’t downloaded ‘Till The World Ends by Britney, I HIGHLY suggest it.  It really gets me going!!!!!!
