Little update for you guys 8 weeks post show/8 weeks reversing out.
I’ve been following my prep plan in reverse and changing up the phase of my program based on how my body responds.
I’m still training hard and eating very well. I eat all my prep meals because I legit love them but sometimes I’ll replace something with a protein bar or something else that fits within the macros I have calculated from my plan.
I am currently sitting at 130.7lbs (I’m 5’4”) which is 9-11 pounds up from stage weight (I didn’t have a scale the day of show). My goal is not to put on a ton of muscle mass or make a ton of gains (AT THIS TIME). My goal right now is to stay conditioned while adding some lean mass so I can bring a TIGHTER package to the stage in February. I don’t feel like I’ve gained a crazy amount of fat and I feel really good about myself.
My body image is healthy, my relationship with food is healthy, and I am healthy. The inner work I did between first show and this one was CRUCIAL and all the healing I did and mindset work I’ve done to start building more than just a body (as I teach my clients and membership site members) has made all the difference.
I know everything I’m doing is calculated and purposeful and I trust myself and the process. I will begin my competition prep in late November because I want my coach to give me support through birthdays and holidays as I told him I want more freedom during these times and that’s also why I’m staying more conditioned NOW (yes, coaches have coaches!)
I haven’t taken any time off the gym as I don’t feel I need it. There have been days where I have felt like I might but I push through and I always think that it might be a bad idea to push myself as hard as I have been but then I do it and my body is reaching NEW normals. Plus, if I wanna be better everyday I have to focus on breaking limits I’ve set for myself in my mind. And I am reminded of my pro card dreams so I have to walk the line between too much and just right.
My new normal for training is what used to be REALLY REALLY hard for me. Granted, it’s still super challenging and sometimes I wanna just collapse or cry, BUT I am just stronger and better with it now.
I’ve been pretty consistently drinking my gallon of water a day sometimes I go way over and some days I go under.
I am enjoying food with freedom and feel great. In all honesty, my body feels like a big bruise when I eat in excess or too much off my plan (maybe inflammation, not sure?).
Anyways, I will be reviewing my blood work on Monday to see what’s goin on with my lady stuff but I’m hoping it’s nothing too serious.
What are you focused on now?
