This pretty much sums up how I've been feeling all week. Yes that means Im burning fat and the scale will be moving but do you think that takes away the fact that my stomach is BURNING with hunger pains?
Ok so Im being a little dramatic but if you've competed before or even attempted to compete you know my pain.... the pain in my stomach.
sad face, sad face, sad face....
5 more weeks friends.....

After the Cookies and Cream shake I decided it was time for me to try to make a batch of the famous Kale Chips that everyone raves about. Yea just not my thing... They just tasted like burnt veggies.. I don't know. Maybe I didn't do it right. We have another whole bag of them so Ill practice over the weekend.
Tomorrow morning marks 7 weeks out so you know what that means..... Progress pics! In my new SUIT! Exciting stuff ;-)
See yall in the AM!

Wow.. I have been completely neglecting you guys for the past few weeks... My time management skills or rather blog management skills are something to be desired, lol. While I had a quick min I thought I would update you guys on contest prep and life in general. Ill keep it short and as sweet as possible.
Saturday marked 8 weeks out from the Palmetto Cup and 9 from Jr. USA. My body is just responding so well to my diet and training that I really havent been killing myself like last year. I did start 23 weeks out and boy am I glad I did because the slower you can take it the better off you are. I haven't had to be a cardio bunny either. Really I would say the past two weeks I've stepped it up from 30-45 mins every few days to 45-60 mins almost everyday. I just have a little bit of body fat that im holding around my belly button, thighs and on my back but other than that I'm solid! I never would have thought I would be this pleased with my progress so far out from my show. Alot can happen in 8 weeks my friends. We have the BEST coach and I'm blessed to have the most supportive husband. Those two have truly made life alot easier for me. Granted im doing the work but they push me 110%.
I failed to take pictures on Saturday. I dont know what I was thinking.... Oh I know, that I would do it Sunday and then didnt, lol. Sa la vie.
This Saturday for sure though. Oh and I got my brand new blinging suit to show off as well. Ill tell you guys all about it on Saturday, where I got it from and all. Your gonna LOVE IT!!!
Well im off to do meal plans and workouts for some clients!!! And if you have emailed me recently I promise im working on yours as well ;-)
Have a fit Monday!!

Good Afternoon All! Wow what a week this has been already. Yesterday was EXTREMELY crazy. We had so much going on that I didn't even have a chance to post a Motivational Monday! So I hope you found some kind of motivation via the web, friends, family or whatever to help get your week started.
Yesterday was my first day of work. WHATTT did I say work? Why yes, I did. You are now following an official Gold's Gym Personal Trainer! HA! It happened so fast. As some of you that follow me may know that I have been very interested in getting into personal training but just haven't had the right opportunity yet. So last week when we were at the gym my awesome, very forward husband just brought the topic up to one of the staff at our gym, we had a meeting Friday and BOOM. Monday was my first day and it was great. I met everyone, got 3 clients and started learning the ropes. I can tell this is going to be a great fit for me because both Joshua and I can train clients (he will be doing this on a part time basis seeing as how he plays a huge role in his job now and that will take most of his attention), we take on as many clients as we can handle, we come up with our own training as we see fit for each client and really have great open communication with the Personal Training director. He's a really nice, easy going guy that just expects us to do our very best to give clients a great experience and help them meet their goals. Tomorrow is my first client and I'm just so excited to get going!
As far as mine and Joshua's training, this is the last week of our current routine. We have followed our current plan for about 6 weeks now so it time to change up the exercises but still following the FST-7 program. I love this program and again just have seen so much change in my body since starting it. The next 6 weeks however I definitely need to put a little more emphasis on my glutes and shoulders. Just rounding both out more and bring definition to my shoulders.
Ill keep you guys posted on how the training is going both with Joshua and I and now my new JOB!!!
