Date Set For My Competition? (Picture)

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 digress.

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!

    1. I really have no idea, it just seemed that way to me. Normally people go bonkers when I mention I have lost 110 lbs and he did not. Didn't react negatively, just didn't fully acknowledge it or seem impressed.
