    Your suit is beautiful!! Posing looks great and you are leaning out so nicely.

    Funny about the call from your coach. Kind of like being a kid again and thinking you're in trouble!

    2/23/13....legs

    4 WEEKS OUT




    …WEIGHT…

    139.8#



    …CARDIO…

    AM Cardio: 3 mile run @ 10:08/mile pace.

    A weird morning for cardio. I’ve been cycling my ECA stack 2 days on/2 off and on those off days I’ve been taking either Oxy Elite Pro or Synedrex. I must say that Synedrex is the bomb diggity for energy! Both OEP and Synedrex have DMAA (which is getting a lot of rap again here lately) but I do not know how much is in each. Anywho, knowing how Synedrex makes me feel I knew it may be a bad idea to take before this run. And I believe I was right. I guess the “fear” of DMAA got to my head because I’m not certain if it was because it was cold (only 50 degrees for us wimpy Texas folk) or the fact that I didn’t really want to run that morning, but toward the end of the run I felt weird and nauseous and had almost a chill in my clavicle bones…..but I’m still alive.

    PM Cardio: 25 min treadmill, 8% incline, 3 MPH

    Did not want to do cardio after legs, at all. Got on the treadmill thinking it’ll get better as I get going…NOPE. After 5 minutes I wanted to stop, then I told myself “do at least 10 minutes as a stretch/cool down to get the blood flowing to my legs”. After hitting the 10 minute mark I still wanted to quit but then my mindset changed from “I don’t want to do this” to “I’ll be damned if I’ll let skimping on one little cardio session keep me from winning”…so on I trotted. Ugh!



    …LEGS…

    Squat
    2x8 @ 135#
    2x8 @ 165#
    2x6 @ 185#
    2x4 @ 195#
    2x2 @ 205#
    2x10 @ 135# close stance
    Where was being able to squat this heavy during my bulk! I definitely left some skin on that oly bar. The back of my neck is raw!

    Single Leg, Leg Press
    10 @ 70#
    2x10 @ 90#



    Calf Press on Leg Press
    15 @ 90#
    Threw in one set…I don’t ever work calves anymore.

    Leg Extension
    8 @ 140#
    3x8 @ 150#

    Hyperextension (glute/hammie)
    3x10 @ 45#

    Leg Curl on 35 CM Ball
    4x8 reps

    Single Leg RDL
    8 @ 27.5# DBs
    Only did one set…back getting tight ☹



    …DIET…

    1553 calories 32F / 125C / 170P
    *Calories includes supplements

    Calories and carbs a bit off as I finished off the last of my red potatoes (about 1 oz more than planned) since the diet was changing this week.

    This was me today!!! I did legs then I had my sprints and steady state after....ugh so did not what to do it! But i've learned that it takes me 10 minutes to warm up my legs on the treadmill, so once I get past that initial "stretching out" phase, im golden.

    Just think, the girl next to you on stage is doing one more rep, she is going an extra 10 minutes during cardio! that always gets me going again.

    …MISCELLANEOUS…

    The goal is to have my ready by the end of this week! We will begin “flattening” me out next week preparing for some supercompensation I suppose.

    I will be participating in a mock competition on the 10th. The judges for the show should be there so this is my chance to start getting my name out there. I thought that speaking to judges or having them assess you before a show was a no-no…but I guess not if it’s a paid “workshop” type environment. Maybe it is because it is available and open to anyone…. So I would imagine that my coach will take pictures so I’ll likely have a non-spray tanned sneak peak in the near future.

    That's a great opportunity! I would totally take advantage of that, plus you look AWESOME so it will give the judges a reason to look for you on stage.

    Keep up the good work, your progress pictures are so freakin' motivating!

    That is exactly our intention. To have them be like "yeah, I remember her from the workshop last weekend"...anything to bring me more attention is better.

    Right now I'm trying to find something (maybe a hair accessory) that will help me stand out a bit more and add some flair/personality to my getup . Like I love how Dana Lynn wears a cutesy little white flower that goes so well with her personality and short hair...

    I didnt know that you could wear hair accessories! What do your earrings look like? I am going to figure out and practice what my to do with my hair this weekend. I am thinking just straight because if I try to do anything extravagant (wavy flowing curls) they will look great when I practice and then like sh*t the day of theshow! haha so just to keep it simple, I may just go with the straight look.

    What are you going to do with your hair, maybe try to play that up to get attention??

    Unfortunately, my ears are gauged so I'm limited on earrings...I just stick with my faux 2G studs.

    Hair...straight with slight waves at the tips. Hopefully my hair dresser doesn't lip it all off next week. I'm trying to save money and they wanted $150 for hair AND $150 for makeup! Fawk that! We talked the makeup girl into $100 for me and my coach's GF will help me with my hair if needed. All the small details you don't necessarily consider when deciding to compete....FML.

    My makeup was $150 too! ugh that's why I'm doing my own hair. AND, this is worth mentioning, the spray tan will be $145... next show its only $50 and i'm going to attempt to do my own makeup.

    I think you should definitely try a small flower, maybe a lily? Or what about a bling-y hair clip on one side?

    I wish . Although, Lee has been hyping this show up for quite a while now...so you never know. I had my BF *try* to take pictures last year and they came out crappy (the camera is only as good as the operator right? which is why i never have any good pictures of myself ) so I'll just have him videotape the darn thing and I can steal still frames from that.

    Got a “I’m proud of you champ” talk last night during our workout last night . We were in the middle of deadlifts and I was completely tuckered out before our workout even began (low fat is far worse than low carb for me) and the talk started with “don’t hurt yourself, focus, get it done” yada, yada, yada…then progressed to the attaboy[girl]. I thought I was going to get a “harden the fuk up” speech but what I got was how great it has been to train me…I don’t bitch, I train like a beast, and always give it my all…champ potential. You betcha!

    Also, the guys that my BF and I met at the Flying Saucer before the Rush concert a few months back (obviously before prep began) workout at the same gym and they were telling us how cool it is to see my changes happening weekly basis And the best is yet to come

    3/2/13....legs

    2 WEEKS OUT

    This is yesterday’s (Saturday 3/2/13) quick update.

    I felt like poo yesterday. Met up with coach at 5 PM to take a look at me and pose a bit. I had no energy to suck my tummy in and do all my 1/4 turn and model poses about 6 times over. I swear I got winded just trying to flex my lats...not to mention that It got warm and I was sweating my non-existent ballz off.

    Ended up getting terribly sick last night so maybe that had something to do with how I felt during the workout. Although, maybe it was something I ate after said sh!tty workout...but that chicken wasn't that old....meh...anyway....




    …WEIGHT…

    138#

    I dropped down to 134.6# this morning. I’m hoping that was mostly glycogen and water loss (and fat loss too of course) because we were targeting right around 135# for stage. I suppose once I carb up in another week I’ll gain some of that back. Still taking bets on final weight




    …CARDIO…

    AM Cardio: 30 minutes of walking the dogs. It was too pretty outside, and I slept in very late so there was no way I was driving 5 minutes to the gym to get on a treadmill and stare out the window at a gorgeous sky and then drive 5 more minutes back home…skip the middle man…hit the pavement and hurry home to eat!

    PM Cardio: 30 minutes treadmill @ 8% incline, 3 MPH




    …CRAPTASTIC LEGS…

    Front Squats
    2x8 @ 95#
    2x8 @ 115#
    No more back squats so I can “stay pretty”. And he thought I was joking when I said I left skin on the oly bar last time I did heavy back squats.

    Leg Press
    10 @ 90# ← single leg
    3x15 @ 90# ← both legs
    First leg workout at the “new gym” and I suppose the sled here weighs a bit more than at my other gym.

    Superset:
    Single Leg, Leg Extension
    3x8 @ 50#

    Leg Extension
    3x8 @ 130#


    Lying Leg Curl
    2x8 @ 30# ← single leg, no rest between sets
    2x6 @ 40# ← single leg, no rest between sets
    6 @ 50# ← single leg
    8 @ 90# ← both legs together



    …DIET…

    1288 calories 24F / 71C / 182P
    *Calories includes supplements



    …BODY MEDIA DATA…

    Not going to wear the body media during the day anymore…just at night to monitor sleep.

    Sleep: 10:11 hours

    Week 3 summary

    WEEK 3 SUMMARY











    …WEIGHT…

    Ended the week at 138# for a loss of 1.8#. Based on my Body Media and food logs I expected a loss of 1.2# so right on the money.

    A drop down to 134.6# this morning means I technically lost 5.2# for the week. I am targeting 135# on stage so hopefully the carb loading will bring me back up.

    Although, I must say I am farking getting tight as hell which I didn’t think would happen this prep because of how we were approaching it. But I will say, 2 to 3 weeks of “hardcore” dieting beats the hell out of the 6 weeks of moderate to hard dieting (like I did last time around). The first 6 weeks didn’t even feel like I was on a diet but just limiting my food choices….

    …MISCELLANEOUS…

    Feeling much better, energy/attitude wise. I think the chicken I grilled the other night (and ate Saturday night) isn’t good. The BF had some last night and he had the same issues that I had. I would’ve thought that it was the 2.5 ounces of leftover chicken from a week ago that I had in conjunction with the “new” stuff…but apparently it is the “new” stuff that is bad. Unless I purchased it expired, I’m not sure what is going on. It is a pre-marinated product so maybe there was some contamination at the packaging plant? Eh, just goes to show further….prepare your own damned food so you know what you are getting.
