It has been a while since i have blogged- i think the main reason is i needed a break from the insanity. I have been training hard- (while trying to heal my pulled hamstring and micr0-fractures in my heels from my grueling training leading up to the last comp.) and i have been eating clean, most of the time. I have not been following the diet- just making good choices.

The last comp was a true learning expeirience. I went into it needing to lose too much weight in the last 6 weeks and had to kill myself to get there. I came in at 141 which was the lowest weight i have ever competed at- but i didnt look my best. the show before i was 149 and looked better- why? because i had fuller muscles and was tighter. i lost a lot of muscle in the last 2 weeks -= especially the last week. by the day after comp i looked full and muscular again.

my goal this time is to lean out slower- 1-2 lbs a week loss for the next 10 weeks= and have a shorter dry out - and be able to do it with out 3 hours a day of cardio. My body cant handle that much stress and i dont have the time that i do in the summer to dedicate myself to that much cardio. This time i have to be SMARTER - and stick to my foof 100% , 100% of the time for 10 weeks- i am very capable of doing it- especially when i put my mind to it- it is a personal challenge to me.

I have also discovered more foods that set off gal bladder attacks- which makes eating clean even more important. nuts, chocolate, fat and coffee put me in pain- so (other than coffee- cant give that one up yet) it is time to not eat those foods.

I am dedicated to doing this comp with my husband - it will be a beautiful culmination to our journey up to this point. We are competing in couples on November 14th= doing a tango/ bodybuilding routine. We are going to take first place!! period.

SMARTER, faster, leaner, harder , and more focused will get me there!!!
