Down to just 5 little weeks til I take the stage :o)
I had my check-in yesterday with Joe and overall it was a pretty uneventful week. There was a slight drop in the scale, but at this point the dramatic drops are behind me and every small ounce will make a difference. I'm holding steady at 113lbs even and just for kicks, I took my waist measurement and it's a teeny tiny 23.5 inches! Since I'm still making progress, there are no changes in the course of action as of now...My next check in will be mid-week so, until then...rolling along.
I spent some quality time with my sister, my love..Rosie, this weekend. We had a good girls day in the gym and put in a solid posing session. I'm definitely not conditioned for posing, so at this point forward, I plan on putting work in DAILY to make my posing and transitions flawless.
As usual, time with my girl allows me to get outside of my own head for a bit. I am having some mixed emotions as far as my physique is concerned. As I get leaner, I am seeing all the areas that I would like to bring up...Seeing where my symmetry needs work, areas that need size etc..I am feeling VERY little and I don't like it!..SHOCKING! I know that I have to keep things in perspective..and goal is to bring MY best and honestly, I am in the BEST shape of MY life...better than any time I've ever stepped on the stage and I still have 5 weeks to go. As much as I know the best is still yet to come and it's easy to pick at my flaws, I do need stop to give myself a little credit for how far I've come. Yes, if my off season was optimal then I would have made much more progress but the reality is...life isn't perfect. I had to miss time in the gym, work around injuries, my diet/supplementation were 'off" more often than not and I had to deal with life's obstacles as they came at me. I can say that I am PROUD of the woman that I am presenting...She is a work in progress and while I'm FAR from the finish line, I'm another step closer.
