Week 1. Contest Prep 2016.
1 week down, 24 to go to the bikini division at the Minnesota Mayhem in Duluth, MN.
Week 1 is week 1, no biggy. Just getting settled in. Motivation is high of course. No cravings but, I did find myself to be a bit crabbier this week, although, I think that had to do with the fact that I got like NO sleep and I was trying to paint this big ol room of ours including the trim + take care of kids + the husby was out of town + we now have an extra dog in the hizzy that can’t go up and down stairs (as my Mom can’t have that doggy anymore) but what ev! Anyhoo, this crabbiness inspired a post I put on Monday titled: You Know You Are In Contest Prep When…. so check that out for a little insight to what we voluntarily put ourselves through… don’t ask.
I am currently 5’6″, 145 lb week average and around 23-24% body I believe. My last dexa scan read 24% BF and I know I haven’t leaned out a ton since then so that’s that. (see more on that: Build Phase 2016 and The #1 Tool in Body Fat Testing).
On a totally fabulous note, I made $65 on my amazon affiliate links after a year and a half! Finally!!! After a year and some months of having my blog up, those darn amazon ads on my side bars have paid off. How do they work you ask. Well, when you, my fabulous readers, click on the amazon ads, or any of the other ads for that matter like bulk supplements or vitacost, I get a kickback AND it doesn’t cost you any extra… SO, click away peeps and buy your stuff. 😀
And of course, I have taken a stupid amount of selfies… I mean, it is kinda ridiculous. And I am not even super lean yet!!!
What does my diet look like you ask? Okay, I’ll tell you…
