It’s been almost a month since I last blogged. I have been busy working my butt off! Here’s a recap of what I’ve done since we’ve talked :]
I had a few rough weeks (Week 4th and 3rd out from show) where I was having a hard time mentally handlingmy contest prep. It took a lot of conversations with my friend Monolina and sleeping to get over it and push myself to the next level. I’m the lightest weight I have been in 5 years, and I’m a size 6 again, almost a 4. The last time I was a size 6 I weight 25 pounds lighter than I do now. My body composition is so different than it was before and I have a lot more muscle. I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished and what I have proven to myself that I can do. There’s a few shows this spring and since I’m 15 pounds away from my weight goal, I think I’m going to work over the winter to shed more fat, and then start training for a second competition.
I’m officially 4 days away, and while I knew in the beginning I wouldn’t be the smallest woman on stage, I’ve learned that my size doesn’t completely matter. This has been a journey about myself and trying new things. While the competition part is about my body, this is an experience not many can have. I’m 91 pounds down in 34 months and I couldn’t be happier.
