In training for my first NPC Figure Competition!

So I’m officially benching myself from the competition on October. I have made little to no improvements on my physique in the last 6 weeks, and have basically been fluctuating over the same BF% mark. 

It has been an incredibly frustrating and trying experience to continue to fight with absolutely no results. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still going to continue working hard and compete eventually, but I need to give my body some time to heal and give myself a mental break. 

My trainer has adjusted my diet 3 times since I started this journey, and nothing seems to be working. I actually feel like I’ve gained weight in the last week. She wants me to get a food sensitivity lab done to see if I might be having a problem with anything I’m eating, and I’m also going to talk to my chiropractor’s wife about a “detox” of sorts. I have to fill out this really comprehensive list of symptoms and things to send back before my appointment next week. I might also need to get my hormones checked to see if there’s anything wrong there, because that could cause me to hold on to weight. 

Basically in the next couple weeks I’m having a lot of appointments to check myself out holistically and get to the root of my problem(s). My trainer is also prescribing yoga to me (haha) because she thinks it will help with my stress. 

We’ll see what happens. Praying for some results!

Act my age?
What the fuck is that, “act my age”?
What do I care how old I am?
The Ocean is old as fuck.
It will still drown your ass with vigor.

Too many women waste their lives grieving because they do not have something other people tell them they should want. Whether you are happy or not depends to some degree upon outward circumstances, but mostly it depends how you choose to look at things yourself, whether you measure what you have or what you have not.
