And this is why I am not a math teacher ;)

Good Morning!

I was going through my old blog posts and reviewing my progress throughout this prep and I realized I actually lost way more that I calculated in the last post. For all of you that know me, I have terrible math skills, and it prob doesn't help I was carb depleted. Please forgive me :)

In 14.5 weeks I lost 20 lbs and a total of 8.5 inches (measurements taken weekly from: chest, hips, waist, biceps, quads, calves).

Measurements: (Jan 1st compared to 2.5 weeks out)
Chest (33.5 inches vs 32 inches)
Waist ( 27 inches vs 25 inches)
Hips (34 inches vs 32 inches)
Quads (23 inches vs 21 inches)
Biceps (11.5 inches vs 11 inches)
Calves (15 inches vs 14.5 inches)

Almost forgot 1.5 inches in there that I lost. That is a huge difference and it took a lot of hard work and dedication to get there. I know this time around, after my round of shows, I am not going to put on a lot of extra weight. I want to maintain looking 3-4 weeks out year around so my contest prep is not such a bitch next time around :) I also have some pending opportunities that may start this summer in which I need to keep closer to contest shape anyway. Keep your fingers crossed for the good things to come my way :)

I cannot believe two weeks from today I am going to be probably getting my hair done right now by the best hair dresser ever, Jessica Richie :)), and my mind will be racing about the day. What an exciting feeling to know that I am so close once again. The feeling that I get on stage is too great for words. I love it because it is something I worked hard for, and no one can take it away from me. No one.  I am excited to  reunite with old friends and make some new ones too!

 I am so proud of everyone, and just remember, if you are stepping foot on stage in 14 days, everyone is a winner that day. You are a winner for doing something that 99% of the population isn't doing. Everyone has a different story....everyone has different accomplishments. We can all be proud of where we are, and what we have done. Don't worry about who is in your class, or how others progress may differ from yours. We all have strengths and we all have weaknesses. Capitalize on your strengths, smile, and be proud for being you. There is only one you <3 

In the words of my good friend, and a.m. cardio ass kicker, Docta Ryce ::DO YOUR BEST...FORGET THE REST::
Thank you to everyone who has been supporting me. It means more than you will ever know!! I hope to see a lot of you at the show!! Pre-judging begins at noon, and the Night Show at at 6pm. Come make some noise!!!!!!!!!!!!

Make it count!
