Feb 2nd - 17th progress
Today I had my checkin and I was 1 lb heavier than I expected despite being diligent with my food/water/gym/sleep this past week. I didn’t feel bummed or anything about it because I can honestly say I gave my best effort everyday. I was also able to put some comparison photos of the last 15 days together and it’s amazing to see the progress that has been occurring right under my nose!
My coach @caseysamsel_bikini was supportive during my checkin and ended up giving me a +40g carb refeed today 🤗
I figured I’d share for the rest of the bikini ladies in prep just to highlight that sometimes your body doesn’t behave the way you expect it to. And imo beating yourself up about it or dwelling in negativity isn’t worth it! We all know what negative stress and thoughts do to the body and mind!! Also, I want to show that although I have a positive attitude towards prep, it’s not all 100% going my way perfectly every second of the day. I just CHOOSE to be positive with my actions and thoughts towards prep because at the end of the day it’s my choice to put myself through this and no one is forcing me to do it.
Also, for the curious, there is a 1lb difference between the first photo and the last photo!
And disclaimer, I am competing in an aesthetic sport with very different goals and standards compared to the average human body. If you are not competing, please do not use this as a reflection of yourself or where you think you should be. If you are competing, keep in mind, each body is different and my 1lb is different than your 1lb!!! Happy prep! Cheers to a strong and focused week ahead!
