Bikini Comp Prep Jan-Feb
A month into training and I am LOVING it. So super happy to have found ‘my thing’ and I would say lifting definitely is! I might almost go as far as saying I’m alright at it!
Positives about this month –
I am getting stronger
I am feeling so motivated
I have gained a KG of muscle
I have lost a KG of fat
Smaller body measurements
I have spoken to a lot of people about comps, have bought a lot of books, watched a lot of you tube videos and may have even found a posing coach
Have found a wonderful young talented lady to take on the challenge of making my bikini
I have taken the plunge and decided on my categories. I have entered Bikini over 35’s & Ultimate Masters over 35’s. Ask me later what the difference is ha ha
Negatives about this month –
Sore, calloused hands
Am hungry ALL the time
Grumpy (nah, only joking that is every month)]
What has been so interesting is that I am gaining weight and losing inches and body fat! And actually, I am glad to be gaining weight as it proves my theory right once again – you shouldn’t look at those numbers underneath your feet, they mean very little in telling you what you are actually made up of. What if I was to tell you that I am on the overweight border of BMI too!
I have been weighing myself every morning as well as have body stat testing done. The morning scales can fluctuate by up to a couple of kilos in 24 hours, that is 4-5lbs. Another indication of the scales not really giving us a true representation.
I was nervous to start weighing myself again. I used to have a very unhealthy attitude to the numbers beneath my feet and found it to be some kind of competition with myself to see how small I could get (those who have read ‘Surrounded by Idiots – I am a RED). I have to say this unhealthy attitude has changed and I feel nothing but positivity about the way I am heading.
