16 weeks out!

Today was an emotional roller coaster to say the least.
I am 16 weeks out and had to do my weekly check in with Joe...

Overall, I am feeling REALLY fantastic! My training has been great, I feel strong and my body is performing well. I have hit all my cardio sessions down to the last second and my diet has been 100% on point to the teeniest macro. In looking at myself, I think I am coming along well..I am feeling tighter and I am starting to see my waist come in and my face is leaning out well. Now, I got on the scale to weigh in as I am to do each week and that was like a punch to the fuckin weight went UP from last week :( I was up to 128.8lbs this week, that makes a 1lb increase. As much as I KNOW that the scale is just a tool, it is not the be all end all...It still did a total mind fuck on me.

I sent Joe a panicked email and as usual, he talked me off the cliff. He gave me words of encouragement and got my head refocused...that is a great coach! I am also fortunate to have a great support system around me. It takes certain type of people to deal with my craziness and I am fortunate that I have a boyfriend who let me rant, understands and talked me back to earth. I sent him a pic to get his perspective (no, not for public posting!) and he gave me a trainer/athlete perspective which was helpful and got my head back in the right frame of mind and away from the scale.

Today was also my first posing class of the season!!!! I haven't strapped on the heels and werked it in well over a year and ya know what...I really missed it, I felt great to get back in the swing of things. It was awesome to catch up with friends that I haven't seen in a while (holla @ Joy and Katie!) and meet some new faces who will be taking on their own journey. After my near nervous breakdown this morning, it was the perfect day to start posing and let Joe take a good look at me in person..Pics can only tell part of the story. Overall, he gave me some great feedback...he is pleased with the changes I've made to my physique and he feels that I am in a good place for 16wks out, no time to get complacent as there is still much work to be done but the moral of the story is "Nic, RELAX!" Due to the changes in my physique, I'm going to be working on making some tweaks to my posing and presentation as stay tuned for that ;-)

So, now after a busy week I am spending the night just relaxing, resting my body and awaiting my Sunday date with the squat rack....just 16 weeks to bring it all together!
