Midpoint Check-In!!

I'm freaking out about how the show is thisclose to being here! The week is really flying by!!!!

On Saturday night, Tom & I wrote out a schedule for this week with what show stuff needed to be done on what particular day. Yesterday's schedule included a morning cardio session, full body workout, shaving, packing my show bag, and an evening cardio session. I was able to get everything done except the packing of my show bag....cross your fingers that it gets done tonight! If not, it will definitely need to happen tomorrow.

Yesterday's workout was a great one despite feeling really weak! Tommy always puts together the best workouts for me - I'm really lucky to be able to have him "throw something together" for me when needed!
And while I didn't lift as heavy as I would have liked, I still got a pretty awesome pump as you can see from the picture below. Holla if you like biceps & vascularity :)

I checked in with The Boss this morning to make sure that the changes that need to be taking place are actually happening. Laugh at me if you want to but I don't feel like I'm tightening up quite as much as I should...there's still a couple of days for the prep gods to transform my physique so keep your fingers!

The Boss emailed and said that everything is progressing nicely but I need make sure that I'm not flexing too tightly in my front pose when I hit the stage on Saturday. If you've been paying attention, A LOT of the girls that are getting top placings at shows do not have what might be considered "striated" legs. So I'm not going to flex as hard in my front pose so that I don't get marked down.

I have one more workout and one more cardio session today and then REST for the remainder of the week. Tanner application starts tonight....Tom's excited about - not so!!!

Enjoy your hump day!!!


  1. You are looking Ah-MA-ZING... Seriously girl, good luck!!!!

  2. HOLLA! And I can see why he likes it, he gets to touch that hot bod that you've worked so hard for! ;)
    I can also see why you'd say you don't feel as tight, but I bet once you're glazed like a Krispy Kreme Donut (mmm, btw) you'll be ready to step on stage! :) Kill it girrrrrl!
    PS-Haven't you been in prep for like... this whole year?? Haha!

  3. My biceps cry every time they see your biceps. Best of luck, mama. You look amazing as always!!!!

  4. holla! You are making me shy about my biceps :-p I didn't realize that girls who were placing didn't have striated quads....hmmmm. Good to know :)

  5. I agree with your coach about the legs - the other thing to remember is there are different judges for different shows. It's all about who's there on what day, and what they think is best. Either way you look PHENOMENAL and you will rock that stage. T

  6. You are amazing! Rock the stage this weekend and ENJOY it! I am so very jealous of those biceps!!

  7. You look fantastic and oh-so-ready! I'm excited for you!

  8. You look awesome T! It hasn't hit me yet that I'll be on stage in TWO days! Maybe because I don't know what's coming? lol!

    Anyway, I think my legs look better when I flex them so that's what I'm going to do regardless of what the judges say... like JR said, it all depends on what the judges are looking for that day so I'll just bring the best of me. I do not like soft legs on anybody so we'll see how it goes. I may see you tomorrow at check in!

  9. you look incredible! wow! you are ready! :)
