Again, Day 2 Sucks

Anytime I commit to, well, anything really, Day 2 is always the hardest for me. I know everyone has heard me say this. But yesterday was rough. My head just gets this anxiety feeling. Handsome even ate a piece of pumpkin pie in front of me! But somehow I battled through.

Day 2:
Workout: Supersets:
-Barbell Row: 3@ 70x12, 1@ 80x8
Chest Pushup: 3@ 10 (I know, I know... My chest is super weak and I've never quite pushed it. BUT! I did all 10 with perfect form and NOT on my knees! This is an improvement for me!
-Barbell Curl: 3@ 30x12, 1@ 35x2
Shoulder Press: 2@ 17.5x12, 1@ 17.5x9, 1@ 20x6
-Lat Pull down: 3@ 80x12, 1@ 90x6
Prone Hammer Curl: 2@ 12.5x12, 2@ 10x12
I wanted to do the assisted dip/pullup machine but peeps kept hogging it. So I gave up on that idea this time. Next time I think I'll try to put it first on my superset list, as I want to be able to put full energy into it.

700: 1/2 c oatmeal, 2 egg whites, coffee
1000: 2 c lettuce, 3 oz tuna, 1 tbsp olive oil
1300: 3 oz chicken, 1 c brown rice
1700: 1 scp whey isolate, rice cake
1830: 1 c steamed cabbage, 1 tbsp olive oil, 5 oz salmon
2000: Protein crepe w/1 tbsp pb
Total: 1548 calories, 154g protein, 89g carbs, 63g fat. 208 oz water.

Not brave enough to post a back pic at this point. :)

Now, this is really hard. I got my new suit in the mail last night. And I put it on. Its tiny, as to be expected. But oh God, I can really see my fat pockets and all the work I have to do in the next 12 weeks. Honestly, I don't even feel like I look like a candidate for figure at this point. But in my heart, I know the muscle is there and I know the fat will shred off. And really, we are our own worst critic.... Right?

And don't make fun! Yes, my suit is lop-sided. lol I was playing with padding, as the more I train, the more my boobs don't exist. But the suit is gorgeous! Its velvety and the embossing on it is totally sparkley! Adding rhinestones is going to be fun on this one!
Also, this makes me anxious for posing on Sunday... I obviously don't have the posing down. :)
PS- In the future I will be able to post these the day of... Right now we don't have Internet in our country home.
