OOOH Now I am getting EXCITED!
OK Friends...I know I am all over the place! That is the ADHD in me that I personally think I manage pretty well juggling a million balls and two fun, loving and CRAZY kids! I know that when I am focused I may only blog about one subject over and over again...Sorry - I am just wired that way and this week, spring break is all about prepping for this NPC show! The picture above was taken this afternoon after posing with LD and Jen and getting a final hour of cardio in with them! THANKS GALS! YOU BOTH ROCK!
LD competes as well and I am sure hoping she rocks out and gets her Pro Card! She is ready!
Am I ready? I again am not sure the jiggle in the butt is going completely away but I will have to say that I have not seen my abs or legs looking this lean since track days in High School! So...Yes...I am excited. I will be there and be there proud of what I have accomplished for myself and my family! McKenzie has been my biggest supporter and is as excited as I am!
So, if you are curious what I am eating...FISH and ASPARAGUS ALL DAY LONG! NO seasons, no salt, no diet drinks, no fun stuff AT ALL! NO splenda, no crystal light, no no no no NOTHING!
Oh but it is only a few more days! I am excited and I can't wait to see Lynn compete! Yes, this is the 1st time that I have competed and so far the good has outway the bad when it comes to doing this together...The hardest part is getting our kids fed...Poor things are living off McDonalds and Pizza which they do not mind at all! It is just so hard to cook and not lick the spoons this week. We make chocolate chip cookies after school almost everyday for them and that has had to stop last week because the temptation is just there! We have been great and not cheated...Or at least I have not! The one thing I fell in love that JEN said NO to was sugar free RED BULL...this week like I said above I get nothing but H2O and almost 2 gallons of it until Friday!
So, all that great stuff being said I have to tell you that I really appreciate everyone's support. There are people out there that drive us to do better and be more than we are! There are also those lifelong friends that honesty was the driving force in pushing me harder to do this...My dad for one loves me unconditionally but will tell me when my 5'1" frame is looking on the heavier side...I also have a dear friend that I have worked with since I was 22 and I ran into him and his most awesome wife whom I love and adore in January...He told me that if I was going to be on stage in April in a bikini that he would not believe it! He kindly did not recognize me that day because I was in that upper 140's thicker frame that I WILL NEVER BE AGAIN!
Speaking of that day...He never hurt my feelings, he only inspired me! I will hug his neck and thank him for it and hope that I inspire him and his wife to live a life of fitness as well!
I have to also tell you...If you see me...DO NOT say...You are too little, you have lost weight too fast! I have been a steady 2 lbs per week, some weeks more, some NONE...I have not had drugs or products other than RED BULL to boost me or trim me! I am natural, I am real and I do not want to hear from anyone saying anything negative...and honestly, I am NOT too little...I have plenty more weight (at least 15 lbs that really could be shed) -
I am sure those that follow my facebook know that I visit my family farm to check in on my grandparents as much as I can. My grandfather is in his final months of life and that alone is a blog for another day...Anyway, the caretaker that is there fussed at me about my new little size and keeps trying to make me eat dumplings, cobbler and many other things they have on hand 24/7 on the farm! Another friend of the family, Shirley Dixon told me...Liz, you keep doing this! Your almost 40 and honey when you hit that age it all goes down south from there if you don;t make it stay up! She said she lost a lot of weight once and everyone criticized her and she gained it all back! So SHIRLEY DIXON THANK YOU! I LOVE YOU!
I have a few new pics of Lynn I will post in a seperate Blog...I promise an updated bikini pic of me tomorrow...(eeeek - I am not use to being so OUT there with all this skin but I have to get use it!)
Chow for now! I must go get my beauty sleep!
