At one week out, carbohydrate depletion, sodium loading, and increasing water intake can all begin.It's hard drinking 2 gallons of water a day (especially DISTILLED! BLEGHHH) but it is necessary to decrease in Anti-Diuretic Hormones. i start to reduce water intake on Wednesday and i have to cut it out Fri & Saturday ( sip as needed).I have to lose that water weight! 8-10lbs is expected...damn! My diet also changes (NO CARBS, until competition day) & my workouts will be less intense. This should be interesting people! I'm almost there! Here's my schedule for the week.
1. intense leg workout (my last chance to blast fat before the show) 100 leg curls reps......=| BURNNNNNN
2. circuit training (100 reps, tri's, shoulders, back etc!!!ahhhh) + 2hrs cardio (lstairmaster @ level 9, then light side shuffles on treadmill..wed&thurs)
3. Water intake reduces from 2 gallons to just a few sips through Saturday.
4. Sodium & sweetners are cut on Wednesday ( OMG. NO GUM??? THATS HOW I KEEP SANE!) i need to lose that water weight! shucks.
5. Competition day -- granola to snack on & only sips of water.
6. Eat more fish this week (tilapia, cod, orange roughy)
I have tons to do this week! I'm glad its a 3 day weekend! jewelry shopping, competition tanning, nails, pedicure, massage?..... =P

I've been perfecting my "model walk" or "model turns"..and its not a walk in the park either! I'm not sure what the judges want until the meeting on Friday (4th , day before the competition). It involves a lot of mind to muscle work...i have to engage all muscle groups. I practice these poses a few times a week...a lot of time in the mirror! I took a picture to give you an idea of a "model walk"...lol . I have to EXUDE confidence on stage...a lil sass & attitude (judges love that). I just hope i don't get a charlie horse! I've always had problems with leg cramping...ugh its soooo painful! hopefully these potassium pills will help by next Saturday! I just hope i don't go blank on stage! focus focus focus. I don't have time to be nervous! FACK

Hey friends! I haven't updated in a while............why? because i've been busy kicking ass at the gym! ha. (worky blocked "blogger sites" so i can't update during the day anymore =( It's hard to find time nowadays ya know? I work 8 hours a day & work out for almost 3 hours = 11 hours....then i crash & burn once i get home. I've created a fun collage with a months worth of pictures. iM REALLLY sick of taking pictures of myself...lol but it's all for my progress folder and this blog. i have to keep record of everything i do...it helps when i have those "why the fuck did i sign up for this" moments. I have my BAD days...where i just bury my face into a pillow and scream. hahahah I'm so whiny! It gets really crazy sometimes....but for some reason I'm feeling amazing lately. I'm in love with the stairmaster! and cardio isn't THAT bad. I have a flat tummy now and that is very very strange since I've always had a belly on me. I'm at 21% body fat.....ok back to work. peace~!
