Wow! Here I go again..planning and focusing my goals to take it to the stage once again.
I have to say that I’m super nervous, a bit uncertain and above all else…freaking excited about it!!! 🙂
I have decided to go this on my own. The first time I competed, I went all out with an awesome trainer and learned so much about the sport and how to walk the walk…literally. I now know I can do this on my own…I will plan out my meals, I will do my workouts (using the Body Beast program to prove this thing works), take my supplements and get my rest.
Week 1 has passed and I’m happy to say that although it wasn’t all “perfect”; I know the workouts are making a difference already and I am making the tweaks in my nutrition that will help me get the best results withoutoverdoing it or underdoing it.
The first time I walked the stage, I came out with 2nd place trophy overall. I was happy but wanted to know “why not first?” (competitive much?? LOL) I sent the judges a message and their reply was that my shoulders were a bit too “big” and that my tan wasn’t even enough.
Well, obviously I didn’t have control over the tan…but I do know that I won’t be hiring the same company to do it again. duh
The shoulders comment made me a bit irritated as I am really proud of that area but I took it and appreciated the feedback so that I can make the changes to my training in this phase.
I will be sharing with you (my dear readers) all of my foods. I will be sharing with you my struggles, when I fall on my face (as it’s going to happen in life) and of course, how I get back up and keep going.
That is life. There are no excuses that are good enough to give up on what we want most. There are going to be failures for sure. That is a given. But the difference between those who succeed and those who don’t; are the successful ones get back up time after time after time. Not accepting defeat is a win, always!
So tomorrow is chest and tris. Making out my meal plans today and will chart and share how I do.
Still feeling a bit nervous but glad to have the accountability of YOU! 😉
