First off, I HAVE to give props to my girl Cynthia. She is competing in Las Vegas at the USA's and looks amazing!! She has truly come full circle in her growth as a figure competitor and I am so proud of her. Check out pics of her at Muscular Development's website:
We will know her results tonight but I am crossing my fingers for a top 5 finish for her! She looks amazing and is in the most competitive class at the USAs! I will post pics of her tomorrow!
As for me and my reality check, I got on the scale today, checked my body fat and took my measurements.
127lbs (not as high as I thought it would be)
22% body fat
hips at 38 inches - the highest they have ever been which I think is a direct result of contest dieting and rebounding. I have never put so much weight on one area like I am now....my hips, butt and love handles are unlike they have ever been.
Went to the mall this am to try on swimsuits and THAT WAS DUMB. ;)
I had to give myself a reality check to see how far I need to go. It is like the game of golf, if you cheat or keep fake scores, you will never know if you are improving so I had to set the benchmark.
And I know right now work is my main priority - I have my account leadership assessment on Wednseday this week - think of it like the Junior USA's for an account service supervisor at an ad agency! :) I hope to make you guys just as proud as Cynthia is making all of us. I will tell you all about it but basically in 1.5 hours I have to convince our senior leadership team that I am leadership material.
I did legs today for 45 minutes, did a few sets of curls and flyes, did sprints and then an hour later ran 5 miles with the hubby. So the goal is to get in another kick ass workout tomorrow through Wednesday and then I am in KC for research on Thursday and Friday which I will TRY to workout but can't make any promises. :) Will focus on my eats.
I have to focus on this one day at a time right now. One meal at a time, one workout at a time. That is the only way I can achieve my goal.
Have a great weekend everyone!!!!
