24 Days Out

2011April 032

Having a hard time getting this post started this morning. I feel drained and bloated and just want a chocolate chip cookie (or 10), you know what that means! Boo!  We’ll see what this month’s “T.O.M.” is like.  I’m supposed to start this weekend and of course I am planning to get some photos taken at the last WBFF workshop.  They are having a different photographer come by for the minishoots so we have the opportunity to meet him and get more experience with getting our pictures taken!  I need all the help I can get.  I am so awkward with posing. Hope the bloat goes down before then!

Diana and I are working on my walk and posing before every workout now.   It’s a workout in itself!

I need to make a list of all the things I need or want to do before the show so I can feel organized and be able cross things off.  I really want to get some nice pictures taken, like a real photo shoot with wardrobe changes and the whole deal, but my body is still a work in progress.  I think I will book something for the day before or after the show.  Not sure which would be better.  Any recommendations?

I also need a massage, another facial, another waxing, tanning, mani, pedi, and a hair cut.  I still have 3 weeks, but I need to get appointments made because I know it’s going to go fast!

Oh, yeah, and I still need a suit!  I am trying several on today that a couple girls have left for me at Hitch Fit.  Keep your fingers crossed that one of them look good!

Yesterday, was a tired day.  I just felt like I was walking through mud all day.  Part of it was hormones and part of it was low carbs.  Justin played golf and I literally planted myself in our recliner with my laptop and didn’t move for like 3 hours!  I just felt so tired.


  • Morning Cardio: 60 minutes on the elliptical
  • Weights: Biceps and Triceps (home)
  • Round 2 Cardio: Cardio Class at the karate school

I really had to drag myself to the karate school.  I whined to asked Justin what he thought I should do, because I really did not want to go but if I didn’t go to the class, I was headed straight to my bed.  He said to go because it’s not going to get any easier. I just have to push through these hard days!  He was so right and I felt so much better when I got home!


Meal #1: Grapefruit and Egg Whites (Some of the grapefruit slices get gobbled up before the picture can be taken!  They are so freakin’ good!)

Like I said before, I was super tired which usually goes hand in hand with being super snacky!  I ate way too many almonds. Darn it! Those almonds are my enemy right now! I also snacked on whole pickles (like two at time!).  Per Justin’s request, I am trying to limit the amount of artificial sweetener I am eating.  (I don’t think I need to explain why!)  So, I tried to not chew very much gum or eat any Walden Farms condiments yesterday. The gum was hard!  Today is a high carb day! Yay! 


  1. Keep trucking girl! You're doing great! And ADORABLE pics, I love the caption of the second one!!

  2. Great job! Way to work through it. You are almost there. SO close! One hour at a time :-) We are all cheering for you!

  3. You've got this... I know how tiring it gets towards the end. When the goal is so close and you have worked your hiney off to get there. Trust me, push, push, push... you will feel better. When you don't want to go, MAKE yourself! You will do amazing. Your back is looking sick girl! Keep up the hard work, it is paying off!

  4. OH I hate that time of the month. I hated it that much more during prep because you can't indulge like your body and mind are trying to force you to. I am SO hungry during pms and just want to eat everything in sight. Good for you for staying strong. Just know, those cookies will be there for you in 3 weeks =)

  5. Thank you all so much for the words of encouragement. I am in tears with appreciation (and hormones). I genuinely feel your support and love in every word! Thank you so much!

    Now off for Round 2 cardio!

  6. Great progress pics! I tried out Spa Tuscano last weekend for a sports massage. Definitely helped loosen me up! Keep up the great work!
