My rest day was well spent. My body definitely needed it! I still feel a little tired this morning, but pumped as ever to hit the gym!!! I was sent some Pre-workout to try from HPN (High Performance Nutrition) called Pure Powder. I am pretty stoked to try it out. The nutrition facts look to be super clean and It is said to give incredible focus and pump!!!
No better day to try it than today, because it is leg day. I need the extra umph and focus while building my little stems into some nice tree trunks! I LOVE leg day!!!
Like I said the other day, I have been talking with a few others who are already competing and I took their advice and tweaked my diet just a little and I am already seeing a difference. I basically just up’ed my calories and carbs early in the day, so they stay low in the evenings. I have always been in the habit of having dinner be my largest meal, so I am still getting use to the idea of not having a big dinner as well as not eating at night. I know I eat at night out of boredom, because that is the only time I am just sitting around doing nothing. I now just guzzle water lol.
I have been keeping our dinners pretty simple just a small amount of carbs and some chicken. No more, no less.
I have also been researching posing coaches, trying to find out where, when, and what competitions are being held, what the rules and regulations are, etc. It is all very overwhelming for a newbie. I think I am going to go to a few local competitions and figure out where I stand. Regardless, I WILL be competing and I WILL place!
Due to lack of funds, I think I will compete in the beginning of 2014. So, with that being said I have more than enough time to save money, learn more about the industry, train and build myself up better than ever! If there are smaller competitions in the Fall/Winter I might start there, it all depends on our financial situation.
One way or another things will work out! My other ambition for this year is to run a muddy obstacle race! Pretty stoked about that one too!!!
What are you working out today? What part of your diet do you think needs tweaking? What are your ambitions for this year??? Hope you all have a fabulously fit day!!!!!
