A few things:
-If anyone is competing at the NPC USA’s in Vegas and needs a roomie, I found a hotel (LV Hilton) right next to the host hotel, and it’s pretty cheap if I can find a few roomies. I have one I think, but looking to add 1 or 2 more! E-mail me if you’re interested: firstname.lastname@example.org
-Just wanted to update a little bit more in detail. I started my diet about 17 weeks out. I had a lot to lose and needed the extra time. I’m now sitting at 9.5 weeks out and I feel like I’m right where I need to be. I’m losing inches every week and my clothes are getting loose.(My “fat ” jeans are falling off. Good thing 🙂 haha)
-Training is going well. It always does because I love it 🙂 Got a great glute/ham workout today from a friend/trainer who decided to put me through a little workout this morning.
-Cardio is at two-a days now, but it’s nothing crazy. I was used to doing close to 2 hours a day, so this isn’t bad at all.
Overall this has been a really great prep. I have about 5 weeks until my photo shoot, and I need to stay right on track to make sure I’m ready for that. I’m not worried about it, though.
-Stressing me out: Booking hotels, driving arrangements, suit, tanning, hair, POSING, sponsorships, etc. Those are the things I’m really worried about because I need to do them, but it’s expensive and time consuming. I’m working on getting my hotel and driving arrangements down this week. Posing will start at 8 weeks out (next Friday) and then I just need to get my tanning and hair squared away. I am fine with doing my own makeup, but I have a long ass mane and I need a professional to tame that beast 🙂
Anyways, just wanted to give a little more of an in depth look into the prep. I am really excited and time is flying. I have a lot to look forward to in the coming weeks and before I know it, it will be peak week. Hope I’m ready!!!! 🙂
