The Smell of Progress Is In The Air!

I will admit that it's hard for me to acknowledge the amount of progress I have made since I started this journey in January of 2010. I see myself in the mirror every day and truthfully, to me, I look the same as I always have. Tom is constantly telling me that I have made some really great progress over the past year and to embrace it and be proud of it. I'm hard-headed & don't listen very well :)

Anyway, this morning I started to look at my progress pictures from my past preps and BAM! There it was! The realization that I have done some serious work on my physique and I had the pictures to prove it! I'd like to share with you the following pictures. Each was taken 7 weeks out from competition date.

As you can see, more has changed than my hairstyle :) My body has changed a lot and I know that there's no way I could have done it without my Coach aka Da Monstah and my trainer/hubs/partner-in-crime Tom.

Seven more weeks....I'm psyched to see what happens during that amount of time....LET'S GET IT!!!

  9. WOW, you really leaned out. It seems like it's easy for you to put on muscle, your body responds well. Fantastic! I agree with your hubby. I do the same thing though, I see the same old chubster when I look in the mirror. My hubby always says he wishes I could see myself through his eyes. It's hard to say you are proud of yoursel sometimes. But I have to say, you absolutely should be!!
