Long road ahead!

This Saturday will mark 12 weeks until my first competition!! I am celebrating by doing 6 - 45 minute cardio sessions a week! That is on top of my Tony workouts! So I will be getting up at 4:55 a.m. every morning UGH! Why am I doing this? Because I believe in myself, I know I can do this. I will get up on that stage and be the best me I can be.

I had a love/hate workout yesterday. Love shoulders, hate biceps but it rocked! I have veins on my shoulders and in my abs YIPPEE!! Today was killer ab day my fave!

Custom Smiley

My arms look pretty good in my work bathroom mirror that I may actually take my camera to work and take a pic!! Trying to remind myself why I am doing 45 min extra cardio a day.

Just for fun tonight I shaved my arms!! No more gorilla arms!

I did it I did it!

I made it all day without eating any of the the no bake cookies that were on the desk next to me!! MMMM.......The chocolatey, peanut buttery and oatmeal treasures were calling my name but I didn't answer!

118.4 this morning!

Rave Girl

Also, Tony loves the suit I have chosen! He also told me to keep him posted on the hair. Haircut
I didn't tell him i'm getting it chopped I just said i'm trying to let it grow out. Maybe i'll mail the hair to him LOL!

Slow and Steady.....Right?

Here are some pictures. I wouldn't quite call them progress pictures but they should be. I can see changes or new things happening to my body so I guess I should be happy. My weight this morning was 119.2! At least I didn't gain anything. I am going to weigh tomorrow too because after breakfast I think I dropped the 10 lbs i've been holding all week.
Toilet Reading

My head looks really small? Maybe my shoulders are getting wider!

I don't believe i'll ever be happy with this shot.

I need some serious posing practice. The pooch is getting smaller though I think?

Getting better?
Hope everyone has a great weekend. It's raining here blah.
I wonder how Martha's doing right now!!!

Words from my psychic husband

You're getting ready to start because you are being a "punk ass biatch" LOL!

I can't wait to get my hair cut off, it always feels so much better.

I did take a ride on the bike with Mikey Harley Couple Only two miles to my mom's and that is really all I can handle. Those crotch rockets are so uncomfortable. Plus I felt like a bobble head with my helmet on.

Worked my back tonight which is always a pleasure. Tonight is movie night!! It use to be pizza and movie night but you know how that goes. No Pain No Gain

So I have this vision of my hair at contest time. It would be to the middle of my back and I would put it in rollers, wear the sides up and it would be red and stand out. Well, things have changed and I can't take it anymore!!! I am getting it chopped next Friday, before the Tool concert YIPPEE!

I'm going to give this to my beautician. Every picture I give her to cut it like, she does the exact style perfectly. Of course, that is the last time it looks that good but oh well.

I have to weigh in on Saturday. I haven't done anything silly like no carb etc....that he usually has me do so we'll see?

Happy B-day Angela!! Yes, I celebrated with her by enjoying 9 peanut M&M's Damn DamnEnjoy your ice cream cake tonight!!!

Well look at was in my spot in the garage.

My hubby decided he wanted another bike. He okayed it by saying I have Tony every month so he can have a bike payment every month??? Tony isn't a money waster and he knows that. If he only knew what I wasted my $$$ on. Happy That is what is great about our marriage my $$$ is mine and his is his. We never argue over it!! It's awesome.
Plus I know he doesn't have a payment since he paid in cash. Shock
We talked the other day how we must just really like being together because we don't have kids or anything holding us down. I don't mean that every marriage is together because of kids, that didn't come out right. I'm just trying to say that we really love each other.
Enough mushy crap. Today I had a great shoulder workout and I increased the weights on my lateral side raises and my overhead press YIPPEE! Oh, and I love doing shrugs by the way. I got up early this morning and did a 20 walk at 10% incline, just enough to break a little sweat. Yesterday I did legs and once again increased all my weights!! Watch out this girl is going to be buff! Until Tony has me doing double cardio and eating no carbs Hmm
Oh yeah, and Thursday is Angela's b-day and i'm going to eat 5 peanut M&M's to celebrate!!

Suit update!

It's on order! Amy from http://www.posingwear.com/ was so nice! I would recommend her to anyone who lives around Indiana or Ohio! Heck anywhere! I ordered a suit from her website although she will duplicate any suit or design you like. My suit will look like this only in turquoise:

I've been looking at pics of shows around here and a lot of girls have the non strapped sides so I though I would go for it. The best part is last week when I took my hip measurement it was a 37 and this weekend when she measured me it was a 36!!! YIPPEE! If you look closely you can see there are cameo's in the suit. This is what sold me. It reminds me of my grandma. They are black though so she is going to look for cream colored ones. If she can't find them she will replace them with crystals. If I need anything or something isn't right she says to come on over and she will do whatever it takes. She also asked what cup size I would like to be? C or B, I chose B because I just look odd with anything bigger.
Mike and I had a nice road trip to Cincy and we took Boomer too:) Oh yeah the best part about this is the suit cost $153.50!! My jaw dropped when she told me the price. I feel like I am ripping her off. She competed in 2003 and said that the suit prices are outrageous. There is no reason a suit should cost over $200. Of course unless you are a pro and the whole thing is stoned. I know I shouldn't count my chickens before they hatch about the quality but she had a couple hanging up that she is working on and they were gorgeous!! I should get the suit in 3-4 weeks and she told me DO NOT freak out when you try it on. The bottoms WILL be snug. She said I will be surprised at how much I lose in the last 3 weeks.

My Little Girl

I miss this stage. I also miss the shoes she chewed up back then.

Vacation Day

Ahhhh.....Vacation Days. So far I have eaten my breakfast, watched Fight Girls and am now watching Starter's Wife. I love Tivo.

I plan on heading out to the mall and buying some new running shoes. Of course i'm going to Ryka's because they are the only shoes that don't make my feet fall asleep. I may look around JcPenney's too just to see what else I can waste my money on. So far this week i've bought, 42 pkg of Met-rx, extreme chocolate and strawberry Optimum Nutrition powder, toffee stevia, and instone pudding. I think I'm addicted to online shopping!!

Tomorrow I head over to Cincy to get measured for my suit. I feel a lot less anxious knowing someone with experience will be measuring me. She is also making my suit too. This other girl Jodi who will be doing my show and we've gotten to know each other just purchased hers from there too. She bought it Monday and Amy is sent it out yesterday! It wasn't stoned but that is a pretty good turn around I think. I'll find out more info tomorrow I guess.

For the rest of the day i'll just be checking the clock for the next feeding time, doing my shoulder workout, and laying around. Maybe i'll read the book I started a month ago. It is called The Ideal Husband by Dean Koontz.

I was up later than usual last night and had some air popped popcorn. This blog is like my confessional too:)

Hi Angela! Miss ya Computer

Following the trend

Well I do live in Indiana you know!!

Today I had a great back and tricep workout. I am seeing new ab muscles and it's wonderful! I think my husband is jeaulous even though he has a six pack and can still eat real food! I'm still waiting on my shoulder cuts. Disappointed 3

Tomorrow is up early for extra cardio! Hips seem to be getting a bit smaller but I still need a lot off of that area. Plus those getting smaller is making my saddle bags look larger???

I just downed my MRP and now I feel sick. It tastes so good! I only look forward to eating breakfast and my shake other than that I could skip everything else at this point. Work has been full of catering places this week! Donatos, donuts, cookies, and Quiznos. Not one bite has made it into my mouth nor will it!!! I did however have 5 peanut m&m's on Monday. Sorry but I won't lie to you Apology 2

Fun weekend!

So this weekend I had to "please" my husband somehow but not in that way. (I know how your minds think) He was going to go to the lake this weekend but decided to stay home since I wouldn't go. Instead on Saturday we went shopping which was his idea I wasn't trying to torture him. We watched some movies and it was so beautiful outside too. I was watching my mom's dog all weekend which is no big deal since she is a little Pomeranian and that was another excuse not to go get on the boat.

Whenever we go we never take Boomer and I told him i'd go if we took her. He said okay we'll bring her! Plan failed I didn't think he would say that. We were worried about taking her because if she is somewhere and bored she whines a lot and it's annoying to us. Long story short we went on Sunday had a great time and Boomer made a friend Wiggam. Apparently she doesn't like to swim though, other than that she had a great time on the boat.

This is my upper left thigh after Mike threw Boomer in the water.
My right quad looks just as bad.

I felt so sorry for her her eyes were so big and she was huffin and puffin. Wiggam was in the water and loving it so we figured since she was part black lab she would like it once she was in. WRONG. She must be more border collie in that aspect!

Angus burgers, buns, cheese, potato salad, Doritos, beer, smirnoffs, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, baked beans, and one tuna kabob was on the table for dinner. You can guess which one was mine:( I was a good girl.

So I had a nice weekend and am glad I went and my marriage may last a little longer hee hee!

Back pics!

This was after Tony's ab workout! 620 various crunches!!!

I have a weird sort of muscle growing underneath my boob?
I know it's sad that little oops covers what I have up!!

Eating was great today. I resisted the cake everybody else was eating all day! Go Me!

Wednesday, June 6, 2007

Did I mention?

I love my MP3 player!! Just when I thought I was running out of steam along came Slipknot, Seven Dust and Muscles of Mayhem to pep me up!

Workouts are going great and I think I may actually have some shoulder cuts within the next month!! WooHoo!
Body Builder

Diet is dead on also! Now that Tony restricted all snacks! Snacks meaning 100 cal popcorn, nuts, and sugar-free popsicles. I will miss the nuts:( I'm glad he told me to only go off of what the meal plans say now! I really like my new meals too. They are not that different just a lot more protein shakes. One time I even get 1.5 scoops! Yes

Determined Now!

I just got finished with a massive cardio session. Last nights show was really inspiring. The show wasn't that big and for an NPC show which is the "almighty" wasn't ran very well. Other than that most of the girls and guys looked fantabulous! LOL! I hate that word.

The overall figure winner was disappointing to me though because she just looked like a swimsuit model to me. She was extra cute but she wasn't that muscular. Here a few pics of the show.

My workouts have been terrific and my eating has been spot on except for some dry roasted peanuts thrown in here and there. Could be worse though. This will be the beginning of week 16!! I am seeing new things on my body everyday and it's getting exciting. I was checking out my shoulders today but it's to early to post the I have shoulder muscles pic:) Especially if you look at Stacey or Amyella's.
