So I left my previous blog completely unattended and now all my content is gone. Starting from scratch again. No biggie. I need to make an effort on blogging more often! But from last April to this April, so much has happened! I competed in my first ever amateur bikini competition and placed 3rd in my class!! That was a very rewarding moment! I worked my butt off during my 7 months of prep, dieting, exercising, waking up at 5 am to do my cardio! It was definitely an amazing journey. I was disciplined and I carried all my food with me everywhere I went. It wasn’t easy when there were parties. I would watch everyone eat all this yummy food that I was not allowed BUT i had my end goal in mind so over time I got used to it. I have never been that fit in my life. I mean I saw abs for the first time! I took progress photos so that I can see how far I’ve come along but it was a mandatory request from my coach as well. It really helped though. Some days I would feel like nothing has changed but comparing the photos from the week before I could see so much has changed! I couldn’t have done it without my coach. She was with me every step of the way.
Over the course of my 7 month prep I lost 20 lbs! I was about 104 lbs on stage! The last 2 weeks of prep was brutal! I was running on barely any carbs, I was drinking about 2-8 liters of water everyday and my brain was just foggy and I couldn’t think straight. I was cranky and emotionally unstable. This was 10 times worst then when I am on PMS mode! My poor bf had to take all that shit! After the competition I didn’t know what to do with myself any more. I felt like I wasn’t striving for a goal any more so I lost motivation. I missed portioning all my meals and taking it with me everyday. I missed working out twice a day. I missed striving for that goal. I tried to get back into the same routine but I just couldn’t. Something was missing….it was the hype and everything about competing and of course a stage date was missing so I knew that there was nothing I was working towards. I am glad to announce that I will be competing again next year in 2017 so stay tuned for my entire prep this time!
My goal for my next prep is to beat this physique and come in a little more tighter! BC’s 2017 here I come!
