123 days out!

125 and 124 days out passed with a whole lotta feeling crappy, laying in bed, not working out and cheating!! I did a whole lot of talking about how I am doing a figure competition in April and how to get there I am eating clean and working out every day and blah, blah, blah...all the while drinking glass after glass of wine and eating cookies. Ha! Today is a new day and the first day of a new week! My yoga teacher always tells us to set the intention to be good to yourself and make the right choices. Last week I set a lot of intentions that I knew I wasn't really going to do. Instead I layed in bed, ate cookies, drank wine, and popped Ibuprofen. Not this week. Maybe I should have started my blog today!! Last week is going to happen again. It happens every month. So it just shows me that I have to be way ahead of the game so that when "last week" happens in April I have some room to let it happen and not get stressed out!

So, let's try this blog again. I am 123 days out from a figure competition. I can do this.....(exhale)

Today I will get in 40 minutes of cardio, eat clean, and lift weights. My cardio is going to be the Insanity DVD. Weights will be full body, very little rest....I want to keep my heart rate up the whole time. I need to burn some calories this week....3500 calories per pound, right? I better get busy!


  1. your sister (i think) told me about your blog and the concept is awesome! i'm really impressed with your changes. keep up that positive attitude - most people cannot do what you've already done, so i'm 100% sure you can rock that competition!

  2. A figure competition is on my fitness bucket list. I can't wait to follow along with your challenges and successes!
