Hit the Reset Button!!!!!

Today marks 12 weeks until my next show and I have done absolutely NADA in terms of preparation. Wait...scratch that....I've done one back workout...2 cardio sessions....registered for the show...purchased tickets for the show....yep...that's it. Not much "prepping" going on, right?

Here's the deal - for some reason I can't get my shit stuff together. I have a tendency of going hard or not going at all. The freedom to eat what makes me smile has been almost too tough for me to give up. My mind keeps telling me, "Just say no to ground turkey and yes to the carne asada tacos!" Racing to the gym during my lunch hour to knock out a cardio session or work out has dropped off my priority list. It's almost like my motivation has shriveled up & died!!

I know what needs to be done. It's simple really. I need to hit the reset button. Let me explain. Have you ever been making copies and about half way through the job you realize that you need double-sided copies and the copies coming out of the machine are single-sided? What do you do? You hit the reset button and you start over.

So, that's what I'm doing. I'm hitting the reset button and I'm starting this prep over.


  1. looks like you have your motivation back! i'm like that too ... either i go hard or not at all ... but i think you are 99% better at going hard than i am, haha. 12 more weeks!! :)

  2. hang in there!!!
    git it git it,got it got it,
    and let it roll!!!!

  3. I love this post. I can relate to it and I have not even competed ;o) You said carne asada and I almost lost it. Can we just have a pig out party in November? Food and adult juice?

  5. You'll get there lady! You've done so many shows this year I'm surprised you are able to hit that reset button but I have faith that you're going to find your way quick! Loves!!

  6. Yea you have to be prepped-out! I totally get it. Sheesh I did one and feel this way. I know you'll jump back into it!
