Alright, I’ve finally found the courage to announce the latest goal I’ve been working SO hard for. I’ve decided to do my first competition!
I was going to keep this a secret but I decided to share it with the amazing people who take the time to visit this blog.
It’s out there now. I guess it’s official and I’m held accountable…ahhh!!!!
This is actually goal number 15 my 101 in 1001 list and is listed as “TOP SECRET”. I knew I wanted to do a competition but didn’t know if I’d actually tell people about it or not. Well…now you know some top secret information 😉
I haven’t announced this goal of mine yet, because to be honest, I have been so scared that I will back out last minute. I really hope I don’t have an anxiety attack or something and cancel last minute. I’ve worked so hard for this already that I can’t quit now!!!
Am I scared? Yes, I’m TERRIFIED. I’ve said many times before, “If your goals don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough!”
I’m not posting about it a lot right now because this journey is something I’m doing for myself right now. I’m not doing it for anyone other than myself at this point. I’m also not doing it to win a trophy. I don’t even care if I get last place, as long as I get up there and know that I tried my best, I’ll be ecstatic. I want to do it to prove to myself that I can step out of my comfort zone and have the mental and physical toughness it takes to train for a competition. I’ve never trained for something like this and have never challenged my body in this way.
My competition is in 38 days from today. 38 more days of STRICT training and a CLEAN diet.
I’ve been on my bikini competition diet and training with Cathy Savage Fitness for about a month now and it’s TOUGH. By the end of all this, I will have been strict on my diet and training for about 10 weeks.
I have been keeping a separate journal with my competition notes and progress pictures. There is a LOT that goes into competing!!! I’m debating on posting my journal when I am done with my competition….maybe…but not for sure. If I feel like it was a good experience and that others can learn from reading my journal, maybe I’ll post it. Right now, though, this competition is my main focus and I apologize if my posts aren’t as long or as often. I promise I’ll post more often when my training is over!
Competing is also VERY expensive so if you feel like you want to help support my goal, you can help me here!
I won’t be posting a ton of detail about my competition until it’s over, but you can hear me talk about it a bit more on my Facebook Page so follow me there!
Have a great week!!!
