Today marks 60 days away from my first NPC Bikini Competition... training to put it all on the line and compete on that big stage. In the past at the gym I would doubt myself and have negative thoughts about my progress. I know I have made progress and added muscle mass but my problem was looking at the goal and expecting to results immediately. I will not be perfect tomorrow or ready for my goal tomorrow but I must continue to work hard and have to give it my all if I want to reach my goal at all. This week at the gym I pushed hard. I worked for it all. I kept in mind when lifting what my goal is but instead of expecting to see the results immediately; I looked for progress, ANY progress! This is what helps me stay focused and strive for my goal. I have the support of my fiancé, Farrel, both at the gym and in life. He helps me lift and push myself each time we are at the gym. I keep our nutrition on track and help to keep him excited about food as well. I have plans and hopes to train better and get stronger in the next few months. I have much work to be done for competing in the summer and excelling in the competition. In order to do that, I must train, eat right, prepare both physically and mentally. I need to be 110% confident that I have it my all and just leave it all on the floor. To go out there and give it my best is all I can ask for. No matter if I place or not it will give me a starting point and something to strive to beat at the next competition. This time I have a plan of action and nothing can stop me now. Working towards my goals and dreams no matter how many hours we work out here! I will accomplish my dreams! Wish me luck and throw out any tips or advice you have for a future NPC bikini competitor. They are all appreciated!
