12 Weeks Out and NOT Freaking Out

Okay, I really just wanted a title that rhymes. ;) I am actually VERY excited about this week. I've missed my diet being clean (I don't enjoy feeling bloated or lazy, I'm athletic by nature) and definitely miss the warm feeling in my legs. Is that weird?! I love how warm my legs get after a good leg day or hard cardio, feeling the blood pump through is the best feeling ever.

I'm looking at this contest prep as my chance to prove to myself what I'm worth. And for some motivation, I've pulled some quotes together that will probably hold me together over the next 12 weeks:
  • “A man who conquers himself is greater than one who conquers a thousand men in battle” – Buddha
  • “Champions aren’t made in gyms, Champions are made from something they have deep inside them; A desire, A dream, A vision.” – Muhammad Ali
  • “Courage is doing what you’re afraid to do. There is no courage unless you’re scared.” -Unknown
These quotes feel good as I continue even just today. I am a champion because I conquer myself. I have courage because I am scared. And I have the desire, the dream, and the vision.

Week 12 Schedule:
M- Lower Body (High carb day)
T- Upper Body (Med Carb day)
W- Yoga (Low carb day)
Th- Lower Body (High carb day)
F-Upper Body (Med carb day)
Sat- Rest (Low carb day)

This weeks goals:
1- 1570-1625 calories per day, luckily I don't even have to think about my diet. Just eat. Thanks Nikki! :) w/2 cheat meals this week (But I plan on very clean cheats, like protein pancakes with sugar free syrup, etc)
2- Practice posing 3x
3- Buy my bikini bite & spray deodorant & more rhinestones for my suit
4-Stick to my pre-planned workouts- I really want something to feel proud of!

My diet coach will be so proud of me:
I prepped all of my lunches for the week and labeled all the dates. :)

I'm off to the gym to be a champion!
