It’s been a little bit since my last post but I wanted to share with you guys and update on #TheBikiniandI. It seems as though so much has changed in such a short amount of time. It’s officially been 17 days since I started my prep and I am still 15 weeks out from my show date. It’s A LOT! My good friend is about 17 days out from her show date and I am so excited for her! She is half the reason I decided to commit to do this show on my own. I had previously thought about a show but never did I think i could do it. But, it’s like anything “if you put your mind to it, you will see rewards”.
The first week of prep was hard. I didn’t really know my quantities and I wasn’t prepping everything in tupperware the night of. I have since learned that to make my life SO much easier, I take the time to measure things out individually and prepare them as I meal prep. It makes for a less chaotic work week.
Currently, my life seems a bit overwhelming. I eat about 7 meals a day, sometimes i don’t know where I will fit the next meal. In addition to those 7 meals, I am to drink a gallon of water a day. I find myself using the restroom every 30 minutes, I can’t imagine what it’s like when you’re pregnant! All kidding aside, I am fueling my body in order to put the muscle that my coach has planned for me.
I had my first body-check in today and overall coach was happy with my progress. It’s hard for me to see a significant difference in my photos but I do feel stronger, leaner and my skin is glowing. The plan is to continue what I am doing for another ten days until I have another check-in. I am really hoping for a cheat meal but it’s unlikely that it is coming my way anytime soon. I can’t say I look forward to my meals, they are rather bland and quite boring. I am eating 4oz of ground turkey about 3 times a day, every day. That’s just an example.
I’ve also recently signed up for my first posing class, which I am rather scared about. Have you seen the girls posing? I haven’t figured it out yet. TBD. I will let you know how it goes. More of the fun stuff, I am picking out my bikini color this week. I will share more of that on my stories.
As far as my mentality, I feel good. The weekends seems to be the hardest because my regimen is less strict. I had some MAJOR sugar withdrawals this weekend and often find myself to be very forgetful. If you’re wondering what I had for my sweets cravings, a piece of pineapple.
