It’s been a while, I know… I’ve been busy getting shredded. As many of you know, on June 1 I started training for a bodybuilding competition. This Saturday is when I compete in the Bikini Division at the Pacific USA XIX Bodybuilding Championships!
As of today…
- I haven’t had a beer in 71 days
- I stopped drinking alcohol entirely 31 days ago
- I’ve eaten oatmeal and eggs every morning since June 1
- I have worked out at least 6 days a week, without fail
- I have not had a single cookie, chip, or candy in over 2 months
I could go on, but you get the point. Meeting this goal has taken a lot of sacrifice. Needless to say, my social life has kinda’ taken a hit. I didn’t realize how often my friends and I eat and drink until I stopped eating out… and drinking. But so many of my friends – you know who you are – have been such a tremendous support when I felt discouraged, or when I was carb deprived and cranky, or when I didn’t want to practice my posing, or when I realized I was so broke it hurts (bikini competitions are very expensive). But watching my body, and my mind, change makes it all worth it. My trainers, Spencer & Greg Aiken with TrueFitness, coached me through this whole process and they have been an invaluable resource (and I highly recommend their bootcamp classes). After all, with their help, this is what I was able to do:
Since I’ve been spending more time in the gym and GNC, that is now where I get hit on. I almost forget what it’s like to have a half-drunk frat guy stumble up to me and offer to buy me a drink. Now I get the cute guy behind the supplement counter give me free samples, or the trainer at the gym complement my hard work. It’s definitely been a couple of months since I’ve been on a date but it is nice to know that there are other, healthier, avenues to meet men.
Calling all eligible bachelors, I need an excuse to throw on some heels and a too-tight dress. Please fill out the following very serious Boyfriend Application and mail to me for review:
