My name is Cassie and I need help preparing for my first bikini competition in June! I just had my second child 2 1/2 months ago but I was lucky enough to lose all my baby weight(25 lbs) by 2 weeks after he was born and didn't get a single stretch mark. Im 5'4 and When I got pregnant I was 145 when I had him I was 170 and now at 2 1/2 months post partum I'm at 135 so I'm very happy with my progress but I've decided it's finally time to do the one thing I've always dreamed of doing and that's entering a competition! The only problem is I'm completely confused on where to start! I'm currently working out 5-6 days a week, both cardio and weight training(splitting up body parts when I lift) but I feel like I'm not doing enough in the training dept. my stomach is 95% flat and my main trouble spots are my triceps and lower abs! Are there any tips you can give me I would greatly appreciate it!!!!!

Glad to hear so many are in the same boat. I just decided to do my first show in April. Here is what I know so far, I have hired a trainer who does my meal plans and workout plans (you can get one online if you are well motivated). Posing coach, regulation bikini's depending upon if you are figure/fitness/bikini. Heels, those stripper clear plastic ones. Bikini Bite. If you are entering a particular show, mine is NPC, you have to by the membership from them and all the entry fees for your show. Good luck to you guys! Making the decision and commitment are definately one of the hardest parts!

Step 1: Get pumped and set your mind towards your goal.
Step 2: Buy a scale to measure food with if you don't have one already.
Step 3: Make an Myfitnesspal.com account and track your calories.
Step 4: Find maintenance Caloric intake and Macro nutrients to match "Carb, protein and fats."
Step 5: Drop calories to find a 'SUITABLE' weight loss per week
Step 6: Add LISS, MISS, and HIIT cardio to your weekly training regimen.
Step 7: Have a great time busting your ass off for one day on the stage.
Enjoy and relish the process
