|A teensy bit of progress after 5 weeks of working out, baby bicep peeking through :)|
So, I’m pretty sure I just set my competition date and I’m SO SCARED!
I was at the Y, where I workout, and took a class with a handful of my younger siblings (whom I am always trying to impress) it was a total muscle conditioning class. I have been going once a week (well, for two weeks now) I like going to learn new workouts to target different body parts. For instance, I learned a great workout that targets the triceps, which I have been having a hard time with.
I was the only new member and the instructor seemed to know everyone else by name, so I thought I would wait around after the class to introduce myself.
We got to talking, I mentioned my weight loss (to which he didn’t seem impressed at all) and turns out he is a judge for the competition I have been training for!
I was meant to take that class, weird how things workout.
We talked about diet, he told me a few mistakes I have been making, for instance I have completely cut out red meat, but apparently I need to eat one something ounce steak a week because it gives you creatine naturally. Ok then.
He looked at my calves, we talked about loose belly skin, he informed me I should get a personal trainer for a bit and then switch over to a coach.
His daughter competes in the same category as I want to (bikini), but on an international level. He told me she could teach me posing when she comes down to visit him. Posing is a big deal for the competition.
Anyway, all in all, I’m really so happy I talked to him! I’m excited for the future!
He told me I wouldn’t be able to compete in the June 16th show but I have to go and watch the competition so I can see what it entails. Which I will definitely do.But this was the most valuable thing he said… He told me I could easily compete in the November 3rd show.
I was like, November 3rd… of this year?!
I think I asked him at least 3 times if he meant November 3rd 2012. Are you kidding me? That is only 6 months away! How could I possibly look like those women in only 6 months?!
He assured me I could, 100%.
Oh my Gosh it’s become so real.
I was aiming for November 2-3 years from now. 1 and a half years from now if I was feeling adventurous. But never did I think 6 months from now, ever.
But it’s been set! I have a date to aim for! I have to take it up a notch I guess.
Imagine, less than 11 months ago I could have never dreamed of doing this, I was a sad girl who couldn’t run on the treadmill for fear of spraining her ankles, again. I would eat McDonalds as a midnight snack, or an entire box of Ah Caramel, mmmm Ah Caramel... Wait... FOCUS!
Thanks to the Dukan Diet I have come so far.
I’ll keep you updated on my progress, as usual!
