Bikini Competition Training 5 Days In

October 3, 2013

Hi All! PLEASE NOTE: This was written a few weeks ago when I was 5 days into training! It’s now been about 3.5 weeks! Old post but still valid info!

 

I’ve been MIA for a while. On and off with a few recipes here and there, haphazardly.

I have so many recipes to share with you, awesome recipes might I add, but I’m busy. BUSY. I have a full time job, a full time life, and little time for much extra time on the computer. You know how it goes. You’re busy. I’m busy.

BUT, today I’m holding myself accountable with all of you watching. You’re my accountability buddies, folks. Keep me honest!

I just signed up to achieve a dream of mine….

To compete in a Figure or Bikini Competition.

None of these women is me, but soon, will be!

Or, slightly adjusted wording, TRAIN like I’m competing.

Yes, I’m slightly freaking out.

I’ve wanted to have the body of one of those competitors and with years of lifting weights, trying CrossFit, being a trainer (even!), I still don’t have that body. Not that I’m complaining too much but still! After TONS of work, I’d love the results I’ve been trying for.

So, I signed up.

I started on Monday, September 9th, 2013.

Before and after photos (in a BIKINI… uggg) were taken.

First 7 day nutritional plan was given.

CRAZY leg workout was done.

It’s now Friday. My legs are STILL killing me.

So, what’s all this rambling have to do with you?

Well, if you care at all, I’m going to be blogging my way through 12 weeks of a body transformation, with my moods, meals, hurts, gains, sweats, and all of extras.

If you don’t care about the fitness side, I will be posting some delicious past recipes that I’ve completely neglected to share. Mostly because you deserve them. Mostly because they are crazy good. And mostly because I can’t eat ANY of them for a while…

Today marks day 5 of protein, veggies, and…. water. That’s literally it.

I can officially say… I HATE CHICKEN.

Stay tuned for a recipe!

*Have you ever signed up, tried out, or pushed harder than ever for YOUR dream? What was it and what roadblocks did you encounter??

*Have you ever done a figure or bikini competition?! Advice, thoughts, info on how to not HATE eating pounds of chicken?

Every woman needs to love her own body, and every woman should own a swimsuit that makes her look and feel sexy, beautiful, confident and sophisticated. At Kate Swim, that’s exactly what you get.

Did you ever post competition recipes (I hate chicken too). Also I would like to know more on your workout routine.

Thanks! You SHOULD compete! I really never thought I could even begin training because I never thought my body would turn into one of those that are on the stage! But within the last 3 weeks I’ve seen so much change, I’m optimistic!

Hi Lori! I haven’t done a figure or bikini competition but know a coworker is doing one soon. She is the blogger behind “Better With Veggies.” So head on over to her page and connect with her. She has been working out twice a day pretty much for months. I would love to just look good in a bikini, let alone a competition. That’s what I am hoping to accomplish with my Whole30 this month.

Anyways, best of luck to you!!!

Thank you Ann!! I’ll go check out your friend’s blog! I appreciate you connecting us!!

And good luck with the Whole30 challenge! You’ll definitely see results and hopefully just feel amazing! Let me know if you need anything! Motivation, recipes, help, or just a chat!
