Week 1 is in the books!!

I survived week 1 of prep....whew!! It was touch & go for a second!! It always takes me a few days to get back into it but the week went pretty smoothly. I only had dreams about Sonoran hot dogs and Popeye's biscuits twice :)

Yesterday, I really wanted a candy bar and was sitting at my desk contemplating if I should go to the gas station and get one. My phone beeped and I saw that I had a facebook message from Chelsea. She shared with me a motivational quote she had seen on someone's blog. The quote said, "Go ahead and have a cheat. The other competitors will thank you." Isn't that so true?!?! I only hurt myself and give my competition the advantage when I eat something I shouldn't. I'm definitely going to repeat this to myself anytime I want a cookie instead of a chicken breast!

As far as food goes, there's nothing exciting to report. My protein & veggies meals were very BORING but I did discover Frank's Red Hot Wing Sauce (Buffalo) this week and fell in love!! And guess what?? My mom sent me a text the other night and asked what I wanted from Costco and I replied, "FRANK'S!!". Looks like Frank's & I will have a close relationship this prep :)

So, here's a pic from this morning. It was frickin' cold (acccording to AZ standards) and I had just crawled out of bed...can't you see the excitement on my The plan is to lean out (of course) while also bringing down some of my muscularity (boo! hiss!!). It's too soon to tell but I'm hoping I have a kick ass package to present on April 16!!!

I have a carbup today and tomorrow...bring on the sweet potatoes with cajun seasoning...woo hoo!!

How was your week?


  1. Wow, you look fanstastic! why are you bringing down muscle? I agree, the first week is always the hardest. Awesome job resisting the candy bar!!

  2. Way to go on making it through your first week! This week was also my first week (even though I said ALL of December I was on competition diet! ha!).

    I love the the quote your friend sent you about cheating! I am definitely going to repeat that to myself too!

  3. holy moley girl! looking GREAT...and you are still 15 weeks out?
    you will have no problem accomplishing your goals!!!!
    oh,and LOVE that quote you were sent,i will post that on my TM and on my nutrition journal so i have to see it everyday!

  4. OMG you look incredible! My very first comp is on April 23rd and I don't look near as amazing as you do. Woo! I better take that advice you got and watch my cheats! :)

  5. @Lisa - Thank you so much! The consensus is that I'm a bit too muscular for figure so I'm going to bring it down a bit for the April show & see how I place.
    @karatenurse - Woo hoo for prep! LOL!! What show are you doing and when?
    Keelie - Thanks, lady! How's your prep going?
    @Melissa - Thank you for your encouragement! It means a lot to me especially coming from someone like yourself!
    @Elle - Don't we all love!! Hang in there and I can't wait to hear how your prep is going!

  6. I LOVE that quote! I really wish you didn't have to bring anything down. You look AMAZING! I wish I had your genetics and be able to build muscle as good as you have. Your abs and legs are looking fantastic! Do you think that in Cali are rewarding gals with more size? That's the show you're doing in April right?

    Keep up the good work!
