Oookeyyy. So things have been good in this neck of the woods. I had fallen off the path a little bit last week, but I’m happy to say that I’m definitely back in it 100% now to the point where my whole outlook on just about everything has changed. There is this unbelieveable focus that I know I’ve NEVER had before. I can’t explain it but I see my body as this well tuned machine. I train in a way that makes me feel superhuman, I eat to nourish and replenish my body. My thoughts about my diet and training are not about cutting myself down or losing weight. Instead it’s about molding and carving an amazing specimen, an elite physique that so few get the privilege to attain. Taking on the thought of positive change is such an empowering thing, a mindset that puts you on a whole nother level. For me, at the end of the day it’s not about the other women who I may stand on stage next to. It’s not about the competition because my competition is ME, and me at my best is great quality. It’s about when the moment comes that I step on stage, will I have given my all. Will I have done my best. Will I have taken every step to feed and nourish my body, mind, and spirit in a way that allows me to CONFIDENTLY AND PROUDLY stand on display for the world to see, and pick apart. Will I have the audicity to do so with a smile and challenge onlookers to find my flaws…. At the end of the day, that’s what it’s about, and I absolutely LOVE that challenge.

Today’s workout for me was amazing. I’m on a training cycle where I’m doing double training sessions 2x/week (Mon/Tues). The AM workout is nothing but metabolic circuits. High volume, crazy intensity, heart pounding, make you vomit training. This is my form of “cardio” – fuck a bunch of a cardio machine. For me this is where it’s at. I hit the following circuit:

Timed Sets: 45 secs work, 15 rest – 4 rounds – 2 to 3 mins rest btw actual full circuits.

Oly Bar Shoulder Press
Frontal Chops w/ Lunge & Rotation
Oly Bar Full Body Twist
Mountain Climber
Walk Outs to Toes

The game is to beat your reps for each round. Weight is on the moderate side, not too light/too heavy, move w/ speed and power but keep form.

Finished of w/ 10 mins of Cardio on the Stepmill for shits and giggles.

Entire workout, just about under an hour.

PM workout… Heavy Chest and Tri’s.

After this week, I will have a deloading week to allow my body a little break, then back to the business the following. I’m doing 2wks on, 1wk off, with this programming sequence for now. My training days are 4 days w/ 3 days off to rest. 

So far things are looking good. I took another pic for my progress for this training cycle because I couldn’t believe the pics I saw earlier and how much I’ve already started noticing change. But even under the same conditions (lighting and time of day) as the first photo, the change is still evident.

Staying par for the course.
