Yesterday was absolutely lovely! I took a full rest day, which I really needed. I pushed really hard in the gym this past week and have been very sore. I like the sore, because as we all know no pain means no gain
I am going into the 10th week of my cut. I am not gonna lie this has been harder than I thought, but I am officially down 10lbs! 10lbs is a lot! I am pretty proud of this accomplishment! I have been hovering at just over 150lbs for quite a while.
My goal is to get to at least 135 by the time I start my bulk again. (In a perfect world 125 lol) This cut has been my most successful. I am blessed and thankful to have met so many people in the bodybuilding industry, whom have all helped me with my diet! I finally have my macros and portions down! When people say that your diet is 80% of your results, they aren’t lying!!!
My nutrition has been the hardest part of my journey! We all go through what I call a denial phase where we have that “I know everything about the world” mentality. Humbling myself and truly listening to those who have already made the changes and seen results, is what has made the difference for me! I am now leaning out without losing a ton of muscle. I feel strong and healthy!
I had originally planned on starting my bulk the second to last week of February, but with the move happening around that time, I do not need the extra stress. Yes, eating can stress me lol Bulking requires a lot of calories and with everything that will be going on, I thought it might be best to continue my cut for a couple of weeks longer so we can get settled into the next house. Plus moving that much food doesn’t seem logical lol
When I start my bulk, I will be consuming around 3000 calories. When Josh starts his, he will be more than double mine!!! This means we are gonna have to have a ton of food!!! As excited as I am to see how much fat I can lose, I am equally excited to start bulking again! I have learned so much in the past 2 months and want to apply what I learned to my bulk too!!! This will be the year for HUGE results!
I did a leg check in yesterday. I have said in past posts, that I hate my legs. Mainly because they have never had much definition. They have always been a body part that I have had a hard time developing.
This is one month’s progress. I feel I am finally adding some mass, which is stellar considering this was done during my cut! I can’t wait to start bulking again to see what kind of mass I can add now!
It’s like I said before, there is a learning curve to everything and once you start to get around the hardest part and you start seeing results, it is the most rewarding experience! Soon I will need to find a posing coach and get ready for my first competition! I can’t wait to scratch that off my Daisy list!
If you missed my post yesterday, The program I have been working SO hard to get done is finally going!!!! Vitacost has been so awesome to help me out with this!!!!! If you know a service man or woman that you would like to nominate and send a care package to, please reach out to me and I will add them to the list! We want to honor these individuals for being the backbone of our great country! This month’s service man is Ben Brokaw! I have the honor of knowing him personally and I Thank him and his family for all the sacrifices he has made!
