In honor of #humpday and exactly 1 year ago today when this picture was taken. Only 3 days out from ABBA Northerns. Curious the package we are bringing this year when this freaking water comes off. @ajkphotography1
Randomness and prep feels...
Last night I decided I was quitting prep. At 4 weeks out I was sitting at 6lbs heavier than I was last year, things didn't feel like they were coming together the same, I'm softer and to be honest, I've been training only 2 body parts for most of the past 6 months because I came in too muscular last year so we needed to bring my size down. That alone has messed with my brain and caused me to think I'm under training and not progressing how I am supposed to because I feel like I'm only doing half of what I should.
Last night I cried on the phone to my always supportive bf who is single handedly responsible for keeping me sane. He reminds me that it's of course going to be different this time because we are going for a different look. Progress is not going to be the same and he believes in me. I went to bed with these thoughts and knew he was right and sometimes you need someone else to believe in you when you cant. to this morning and I woke up in a wayyyy better mood, felt positive, stepped on the scale and was down 3lbs. I know it's not huge numbers and a lot can be attributed to water weight, time of month, hormones etc but I was consistently not dropping weight each week. This was that breakthrough/ woosh I needed to know to keep going. At this point I have no clue what kind of package I'm going to bring. My prep has been anything but consistent. I gained 11bs at one point during this prep which is def not what you want. It's been a struggle but I feel like I see the finish line and I want to see it through. Consistency is everything in this sport and having the right people to keep you mentally in check when you are doubting yourself is a necessity. @88cory88 you're everything and thank you for your support
Has my @$$ handed to me yesterday by @kendramcgowan_ who did a KCE Treatment on me. Holy hell do I feel like I've been hit by a truck.
BUT! Immediately after...my posture was better, my lats actually made an appearance, my back pose was looser, the strength I had in my arm workout was ah-mazing, and my shoulders were poppin!
Definitely detoxing today and can feel it (headache from hell)
She doesn't go easy on you but it's totally worth it. #nopainnogain or in this case #gains lol
