The story continues....

When last we saw our heroine, she was preparing madly for her upcoming comp....but hmm ...not much mention lately of training and progress-type stuff.....

That would be because I've been BLOODY busy, OK? And just a teensy bit freaked-out and overwhelmed (yes, AGAIN), thanks to impending house completion, the thought of moving, a bit of a sudden rush of extra work, general too-much-stuff-to-do-ness, and on top of all that, THE FREAKING AGENT WANTING TO TURN UP AND INSPECT THE BLOODY PREMISES NEXT FRIDAY AND WHO'S HAD TIME TO DO HOUSEWORK??? Inspection? On a weekday? With one week's notice? I don't think so, Buster!

In spite of the fact that I shall be ringing said agent tomorrow and telling them that next Friday doesn't suit, so sorry, you'll just have to make it some other, uh - how about December? ...I thought it prudent to make a head start on the necessary chores by cleaning the bathrooms today. Ugh. I also did my cardio workout, some posing practice, completed a client program that I ran out of time for yesterday, cooked myself 3 healthy and yummy meals so far, and got 3 loads of washing out of the way.

Now I just have to do the folding and ironing, try to get my head around my routine, cook a couple of kilos of chicken breasts, clean up after dinner (which Bike Boy will be cooking), organise my training gear and food for tomorrow, and then I can relax. For approximately 10 minutes, by which time it will be bedtime.


As for training, that's been a mixed bag over the last week. My weights workouts have been extra-good, but cardio was just uninspiring. Until today - I kicked arse with my Spinervals workout this morning. Maybe the rest day yesterday helped. Or adjusting my carb/fat balance. Whatever the reason, I'm happy to have my cardio groove back.

Progress-wise, things have been slow on the weight loss front. There was a bit of a whoosh last week, but I've been sitting at around the same weight, give or take 200g, for the past 4 days. I'm just keeping nutrition tight and my fingers crossed. Sometimes I think I see improvements in the mirror, other times, nope - nothing. *sigh*

Consequently, I'm having lots of typical figure competitor's OMG I'll never be ready on time! moments lately. I'm trying to counter those with alternating calm assurance and a bit of screeching at my Inner Fat Girl to just shut the f*** UP!!

Not sure it's working..... can I get a little help from the scale deity, thanks?

You're awesome Kek. Really. I don't know how you do it all. I reckon I'd need a month to do what you do in a week.

I think I've given up on the scale myself...trying to just leave it to the mirror and how my arse fits into that tiny little outfit Jo made me-LOL!
Keep up the good work KEK....I agree with Deb...don't know how you do it all! The closer I get to my own comp the more amazed I am at women who have jobs and kids to deal with while getting ready for the comp-simply amazing!

Oh, YOU'RE having a fat girl freakout?? spare a thought for your poor sponsor that hasn't even been doing any contest dieting and still has to mix and mingle with cute, taut girls in bikinis. I'm, gonna feel like a blob (yes, it is all about me.. actually).
