Day 2

Day #2 in the record book. Today I just did some cardio, 45mins LISS. Diet is on point of course. I dont know what it is.. perhaps its I'm competition mode but I don't even so much as WANT to deviate from my diet.

I watched the Food Network, Paula Deen even... I wasn't intrigued. I'm pumping water like its my job, eating as close to the earth as possible, ok well not "as possible" since I could easily rule out protein powder, coffee mate, BCAA's and other supplements but meh.. lol. I chose not to. I should say.. " I am eating as close to the earth as I am going to" lol. I did have a horrible headache earlier, now its just faint after taking some Motrin. Im not sure what thats all about. Too much caffeine perhaps? I want to mimick today, tomorrow and see what happens.

By my calculations, I was in deficit yesterday by 866 calories. I am happy with that. I'd like to have it closer to 1000 but that wouldn't give me any room to move and I suspect I will be dropping calories by at least 6wks. Week 7 or 8 at the most. Those are going to be the weeks where strong changes happen week 7-12. I am so stoked. Oh yeah. So I weighed myself this morning and in the last 24 hours I dropped 7lbs of water! Wow. Im shocked. I never drop that much water weight at once.. ok well no.. thats not a fair statement because back when I was weighing myself I never would have let myself eat the things I ate to hold that much water anyway. Most drop I've ever seen overnight has been 3-4lbs. Then I might drop 1-2 more lbs within the week, so I am really curious as to what is water and what is fat. I'm hoping for a **** ton of water! haha. Not likely but hey! A girl can dream right ;) That's about all for this day! I can't wait to get my prize pack! Its like late christmas!

Day 1

****ght so its day #1. I woke up this morning, stepped on the scale and almost fell the fuk out. I know at least 1/2 the weight is water weight as I look 6 months pregnant right now lol. There are various reasons as to why. The main reason is because I am seriously sensitive to carbs and when I eat a diet predominately of starchy carbs I swell really badly.

Today has been pretty good though, of course #1 of a cut always is :D. I went to the gym and then stopped at the store to get a paper to take the pictures the contest entry. When I saw the pictures it was funny in one sense because I know I am holding water but my head looks too small for my body so I had to laugh at myself. The hard part is posting them for the 'world' to see because they are so damn horrible! However, I did win contestant of the week which motivated me quiet alot because now my fat is plastered indefinitely on bb.com so now I have to win this contest to show people what I am capable of.

I am not concerned with the fat that I put on during this 'bulk'..which looks more like a fulk in pictures but I know how my muscles feel and I am not jiggling when I walk I just got thick as hell. I know to an extent what I am capable of and I am very motivated to make it happen. I cannot wait to see what I look like in March. My countdown says I have 84 days left in my transformation which, if I play my cards right and do all I am planning to do that leaves a possible 24lbs of fat to lose. Which is perfect :)

I won't start talking about calories, macros, ect ect until after the first 2 weeks. I have an excel spreadsheet set up and I need to first see how I am trending and how I stablize after all this water drops off.. as of right now I am relying very heavily on my body bugg to guide me through the calories based off the weight I am currently holding which I will only change if there are more than 3-5lb swings on the scales. This is highly likely in the 1st 2 weeks for me because of water and dwindling glyocogen levels.

Happy New year!

Its been a few days since my last post but thats because I have been 'doing the holidays'. Not too much to report though.

Diet starts tomorrow. I'm excited to start this cut because I am really excited about all the 'pretty's' I've built in this short amount of time. I am so much stronger and thicker than I was but Im still very firm. Ive put on quiet a bit more fat than I am comfortable with but whatever. Watch how fast it comes off! But don't be jealous! haha.

Tomorrow I have to take pictures for my entry into the contest and I need to weigh myself so that I can accurately gauge the calories I can handle. Anxiety is pretty high right now because of all that since I have avoided the scale, pictures or even looking in the mirror for too long because I hold so much water and due to the food my belly is usually swollen. I know that had I not gone about it this way though this bulk would have never happened but in the same respect I think it got a little bit out of hand because of it also. Psychology is a bitch. So anyway... lets get it on. Time to shred this up and show you all what I have! :)

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone. I've had a pretty decent day. I woke up this morning, watched my little girl open presents and then we started playing Just Dance 2 which is so much  fun :)  We went and at our favorite Indian restaurant which makes me super happy because its cheaper than buying all the groceries to cook, requires no preparation, no clean up and no leftovers lingering around for days!  

Santa brought me Zumba for Wii, a waffle iron (so stoked), and a toe ring. Which I thought was super cute because my daughter picked it out for me. I mostly played Just Dance all day today with Aubrey. I loved that for many reasons. I get to spend time with her and do something active.

I know this is going to sound crazy but Im actually going to incorportate the Wii into my cardio because its so convienent, fun and its something I can do with my daughter.

Today I am so super swollen.. its unreal how much water I am holding from the crappy way I have eatten in the last 2 days. Oh well right? Holiday season is OVER and now I just have to get through NYE which is no big deal because thats just a holiday surrounded by drinking, not FOOD. My stocking did not get filled this year because past this date I plan on getting my mind right to diet hard for the next 12 weeks at least. I do plan on hitting the indian restaurant once more before Jan 3rd but thats about it. The anxiety about posting my pictures after this bulk is high. Im used to posting pictures of me trimming down not fluffing up. My size 5 jeans are TIGHT and barely button lol.. thank god I saved my 7's. I keep telling myself that Im *not* fat though nothing could FEEL further from the truth. Anyways.. woe is me right? Moving on haha.

Furthermore I am keeping my training the same as listed in previous blogs but my diet is going to change. Im taking it back to Intermittent Fasting because these 5 meals 2-300 cals is making me CRAZY. I would rather eat be satisfied, get hungry eat again, go to bed. Instead of eat... then be hungry on a 24 hour basis. I find that I obsess more over when Im going to get to eat again than I do with IF because its just easier that way. So my day will most likely look like so...

515am -    awaken - black coffee - OxyPro

630-730 - fasted PT

10am        BCAA's

1130         Train w. BCAA's/OxyPro

100pm      Meal #1

500pm      Snack

700pm      Meal #2

900pm      Pre-Bed Snack 

 

Worked really well for me on my last cut. So thats the avenue im going to take, with meals the same as before just eating more at once instead of spliting it up :)

Anyway.. I will be more active in this blog once the cut actually kicks off. Im excited and nervous! Nervous because I will be so upset if I've not made some gains!

Hmm..

I have a regular blog I post to on a daily basis so I will start bringing it over here too. I am entering the 2011 Body Transformation Contest and I needed to find a way to being active on my bodyspace? So perhaps this will help :) Not sure if the two are one in the same or what as I have never logged stats or anything here before. To be continued..
