Here we are just a little under 6 weeks out from my show. One thing that is consistent in my life is having to deal with a lot of unexpected issues while dieting and training. It doesn't make it easier but this year I have managed to pull it together better than the last 2 years when things where not as stable in my life. My meals are prepared way ahead of time, and I make sure I follow everything the way it was outlined for me. Not sure if I mentioned it in my last blog but the last time I felt this drive and motivation to get on stage was back in 2005. Sure I competed plenty of times in between 05 and last year but I wasn't taking it as serious as I should. I would honestly clean up my diet between 8-6 weeks out!

In previous years, including 2005, cheat meals were pretty much a part of my norm. Not this year! Fakhri doesn't quite believe in cheat meals and when he does agree to one you gotta believe your hard work made it worthy for him to even agree to one! My cheat meals in the past consisted of burger and fries (lots of them) and this year I get to have sushi. That's right, no more burgers and fries for me so believe me, when I am done with this, I am going straight for a burger and fries. Oh, and chocolate (I stocked up on some Easter sale goodies). In any case, I do feel healthy and my body has adjusted very nicely to the changes. I have also gained a whole new appreciation for sushi that I never had before and I am happy to say that I will include this as part of my dinner outings more often now.

It will be exciting to see what changes my body will make these last few weeks and how I will end up looking on stage.
Keep an eye out for a couple of interviews and a training video in the works.As always thank you for your support and for reading my blog!
