Please forgive me for not posting more. I have things to post and just haven’t taken the time to do it, but I have been thinking a LOT about posting about mindset, dieting and healthy liftestyle versus skinniness 🙂
I definitely see changes! Hallelujah! I am very pleased with my waist and the way all of my skinny clothes are falling off of me. BUT I am scared to death that I will be fat on stage. I have decreased from 20.4% Body Fat to around 15.5% (by my calculations based on lean muscle mass and all from the dunk tank and my current weight). I am sticking with the plan. I am seeing changes. BUT I ONLY HAVE 4 WEEKS LEFT….AHHHHHHH!!!!!
I am also wrestling mentally with what weight I will be able to maintain. Can I maintain this? 4 weeks out? Can I maintain what I was a month a go or two weeks ago? Time will tell. Healthy eating is a journey I’m on and we’ll see what happens post-contest.
My post-contest plan for now – eat out dinner after the show, church on Sunday morning, eat out breakfast after the show (I have planned what I want to eat) and then by lunch on Sunday, back to planned eating. I’ll work on loosening up my meals but I’ll start there. I’ve been eating on a plan of some sort since January 2009 so I don’t know any other way right now. That’s habit for me now. I have been doing extensive research on pregnancy and fertility diets though and learning about healthy eating in general. Let’s hope I can practice the “healthy” eating concepts that I’ve learned about!
As always, thank you for your support! My friends and family are the best!!!
