Training: Day 1

 I have finally committed to doing another NPC Bikini Fitness show! I had so much fun competing in March that I knew I wanted to do another show but I had a very busy summer. I ate clean and went to the gym but not as strict as when I am training for a show. Now that things are settling down (kind of) I decided to start training. I am 13 weeks out from an NPC Bikini Fitness show that I would like to do in November. If I place top 2 in the show I can get my pro card! Getting my pro card would be AMAZING!! I know many girls who look absolutely amazing who have competed in a number of shows and still haven't gotten theirs so I know I have my work cut out for me by making this one of my goals. Aim for the stars right? 


 I am actually going to train myself for now. I have a meal plan that my old trainer made for me and I am pretty confident with my work outs so I think I can do it! Let me tell you though it requires SO much more self motivation when you are training yourself. No one is checking up to make sure you are on top of your nutrition or making sure you are going to the gym everyday, just you. And if you miss a day you are the only one who knows. Therefore you have to have a lot of self motivation and really want it or else it isn't going to happen. Well, I REALLY want it and I am going to do it!  


Today was day one of my training. I woke up to Laikynn crying. Usually I can wake up and get ready before she wakes up which is great because I feel like it is easier to get ready when the kids are sleeping. So I went in got her ready for the day then Ty woke up so I got him ready for the day. Went in and made both of them breakfast then I ran back to my room to get ready to go to work. After I was ready I had about 5 minutes till I had to leave, usually I would just grab something quick on the way out the door but today I committed to actually making a good breakfast. So instead I made 6 egg whites, a bowl of oats and a protein shake. I was proud of myself for making a good choice but just because I made one good choice didn't make the rest of them any easier. At dinner my husband busted out a Mountain Dew. Yep, one of my biggest temptations! And although I REALLY wanted it. I got a big glass of water instead. 

Then gym time came around. I got home late from work today, about 5:30. Usually I am home MUCH sooner than that. I was tired and had no desire to go to the gym. Laikynn had had a long day too from waking up early and was pretty grumpy. I thought of every excuse I could think of to not go to the gym but then I decided to just go! I did feel good about my decision to go to the gym but at the same time the first 2 weeks of being back to the gym are brutal! I hate when I go and realize how much strengthen I lost since my last show. And not only that but after only a few work outs I am already sore!! Ohhhh.. the joys of the first two weeks. I am pumped though to overcome the first weeks and get back on track to my fitness goals. So get ready for some awesome workouts and clean recipes.. and some journal like post about my process of getting fit! :)

    Puppies learn very fast with proper training. The primary few days at home are very important for puppies and the examples you set now will last a life span. Following these basic techniques as soon as you bring your puppy home will make sure a positive housetraining experience for you and your puppy:-

    * Ensure you give your dog lots of consideration and attention when he’s doing the right and good thing. Praise him plentifully when he’s been a good boy.

    * There is nothing intrinsically incorrect with telling your dog “no,” it’s just that it doesn’t give him sufficient information. Instead of “no,” instruct him what you want him to do.

    * Give your puppy recurrent admission to his toilet area for preventing soiling inside house. Reward the puppy for do so - give a special treat.

    * Nourish your puppy with 2 – 3 meals per day. Leave food out for 15-20 minutes then take away the leftover food. Never leave food out for puppy to eat at will. This helps you find out when she’ll have to go potty. www.dog-buy.com

  13. I used to take tons of pills and found my stomach wanting to reject them. The size of those pills and amount make it a deal breaker for me. Now I take a shake in the morning.
