We're focused on my progress and also starting to plan Bella's birthday party which will be the day after my competition. She wants to have a Scooby Doo themed party this year and decided she would like marble cake, that came up this morning :) I'm excited to start finding items for the Scooby Doo themed bash and continue on my journey!
I was so, so happy this morning when I stepped on the scale, I lost two pounds down to 142! Looks like the small change in my nutrition plan helped, we'll be staying on the same plan for now and we will do my body fat again this next weekend to see, hopefully, how much I've lost.
Saturday I had a great workout and had so much fun working on my posing with David. It was just the two of us this time around, lots of laughs, especially over my "bouncy" walk because the floors in the fitness room have a bit of bounce to them :) I think I have my t-walk poses picked out, I love my first one, nice and sassy, easy transition and I'm feeling so good about it! David LOVED it, loves my walk, I'm feeling confident and am looking forward to perfecting it over the next eight weeks. We worked on the mandatory poses, my quarter turns are pretty, I only held the poses for 30 seconds each time and we'll work on holding them longer next session. Amazing how tiring holding a pose can be, but focusing on flexing EVERYTHING yet looking relaxed AND smiling, it's pretty difficult!
Sunday Kyle, Bella and I went on a nice hike for just over an hour then I played three hours of sand volleyball. I ended up subbing for a team at 7pm, I was pretty damn tired after all that volleyball but it was fun as usual :)
Surprisingly I was ready to go this morning, one of my rare workouts with Kyle there. He really pushed me today, as I was doing the plate hold at the end of my workout I could see a vein in my right bicep! Funny what excites us now, progress, progress! He added a plate to my tricep dips, got a nice picture out of it too, I see definition :)
The first workout log is from Saturday and the second one is from this morning. Last night my doubles partner Chris mentioned that he can tell quite a difference in my arms and shoulders, Mindy commented on the line on my chest, someone we played against in 6's said I had awesome, shapely legs. It was quite the night of compliments that built me up and helped me see that I am in fact making great progress, feeling so good today!
