Dear Boys and Girls,
I could selflessly write about how it's Day 1 of the New Year and how I'm here to help you with your New Year Resolutions. Well, it is true. I am here to help you. That doesn't change because it's June 1st or January 1st.
Right now though, I have a goal in mind and only 16 days (counting today) to achieve it. On January 16th, I will be taking my end of the year pictures for the Million Dollar Body Contest. My goal? To be one of the 8 finalists.
Trust me, I'm not crazy enough to think that in 16 days I can go from flabby to holy-cow-she's-fit. You can't take a crash course to fitness. I know that, and learned that many times over before my Beachbody journey. Ever since I won the Quarterly in September 2009, I have trained and eaten with the goal of being a finalist in mind. I will achieve 10-12% bodyfat by the end of the month. It's not a far stretch, I'm almossssst there! In September I said goodbye to alcohol (yes, completely!), dairy, sauces on my food, and most dry carbs with the exception of sweet potatoes, oatmeal, and brownrice cakes (100% brown rice). I have stuck to my eating plan religiously while making some minor adjustments, and have brought it twice a day (cardio and resistance) six days a week. I am truly amazed at how I look and feel. By eating this clean and being this focused, I have seen my body go to a whole other level.
With only fifteen days left to go before picture time, this Barbie is treating herself like a competitive bodybuilder getting ready for a show. Bye-bye my once a week cheat meal, at least for the next couple of weeks. Eating 100% clean, getting enough sleep, drinking enough water, and am/pm workouts will make all difference. I'm ready to achieve elite fitness and get my best body ever.
My friends keep asking me, "Are you going to keep this up after the contest?" While I will reincorporate my once a week cheat meal after January, I like training with intensity and eating super duper clean. My best body is yet to come, I can feel it.
I just had my Shakeology. In about an hour, I'm ready to hit cardio.
The day is young. Let the countdown begin. DAY 1, here we go! I think we'll both be amazed with what is possible.
