Three weeks to C-day. That's "cookie" day for those of you who didn't know. And when I say "day" I really mean night because the show gets over late.
I'm excited! I'm excited both for the show and the after party (dinner). I have worked so so so hard and I am seeing insane results. Of course there is always room for improvement, but that's what March is for (the next show-- if I do it).
For the next two weeks I'll be doing phone training with Jerry. That's basically where I have Tom take a picture of me posing and send it to Jerry and he tells me what I need to do to be ready. Right now I'm trying to build my glutes so I work them twice a week.
I'm still on two-a-day cardio. I do 35 minutes of intervals in the morning and 45 minutes in HR zone later in the day.
I'm also still on high/low carb days. I like different things about both menus. My favorite "treat" is Smart Balance butter. At first I couldn't eat the stuff without gagging unless it was on food (how normal people eat it). Now I just eat plain-ole SB butter. It's kind of like eating Lindt chocolate balls. You know, the texture, not the taste. But it does taste good.
I really need a cookie.
I have my suit! I'll do a post about it later this week. It's turquoise.
Oh, and I started tanning in the tanning bed. The first day I only did it for 8 minutes and didn't really get much so the next day I did 12 minutes. Totally burned my entire front torso. Ouch! I'm so getting skin cancer. Crap! But don't worry, the next day I tanned with a shirt over my front torso to get my back. Now my butt is a little pink and the cancer will be balanced.
We just moved to Idaho and I had to get a new gym. I found one a few miles from my house. It's open 24/7 and has tanning beds. Plus it's kind of a great deal for Idaho -- $20/month for gym and tanning plus $30/month for babysitting for both of my kids. Wooh! The bad news is that I have zero cell phone reception there so no chatting during cardio.
Training while moving was awful. I didn't exercise for a few days and my eating was off. I didn't progress during that time but I got right back on and things are looking good for the show.
Well, I just wanted to give you a quick update. And I want to invite you to the competition! It's Saturday, October 12 at 6 PM. Mark it on your calendars. It will be in Salt Lake City. I'll give you more deets soon. But for real, come.
