8 days out!
Today I’m 8 weeks out from stepping on the stage for the first time! I’m almost ready! I still have to do a few things but those are just the normal things to do right before the show. Like finishing packing, getting the nails done, today I get my haircut, and I still have a few little things to buy.
Yesterday was my last day in the gym and I did Legs & Shoulders. I was amazed that I’m still pretty strong and the weights did not go down! Next week will be a totally different way of training since Erik will be providing that for me. Paul (my Tall, Dark & Handsome Fiancee) has been my trainer for the entire contest prep and he has done an amazing job ensuring I don’t lose muscle while dieting. However, since Erik will be overseeing the diet part for peek week, he’ll be providing the workouts as well since they go hand in hand.
Yesterday I went to Yogurtology after working out ( I drank my protein shake on the way there) and since it was my refeed day, I had TWELVE ounces of yogurt! OMG! It was amazing! I went online and looked at their carbs content and made sure I got the flavors I wanted that met the requirements for my refeed. Since they weigh it for you, there is no problem knowing exactly how much you’re eating. I can kick myself in the butt for not thinking of having this before!!!!!!!!!
The only instructions I got so far for peek week is to start consuming 10 liters of water a day!!!! I started water loading today (Erik never has his clients cut water… not even on the day of the show) so you bet I’ll never be thirsty lol! Since I’m doing two shows back to back I’m developing a very close relationship with my new BFF… isn’t she beautiful?
Have an awesome weekend everyone!
