I'm amazed at how fast this month is going by. The month is almost over, and I am hoping to be ready for the contest on October 30th. I still need to make some significant improvements in my body composition, mostly around the buttocks and hamstring area. That area is definitely the weakest.
Today is another difficult day emotionally. I am still eating and working out as usual, but I won't kid you, it's hard. I love the fact that I have been able to stay focused and keep my diet clean, but at times it's just so frustrating. I'd just like to have a bag of popcorn at the movies or a Golden Spoon Frozen yogurt.
Keeping the goal in the front of my mind helps tremendously. My temptations are lessened and my will power strengthens both from focusing on what I want and doing what I "need" to do and not giving too much power to what I "want."
As of yesterday, since that is the last time I weighted myself, I am now 116 lbs. I got over the hurdle of the plateau I had at 118 lbs. I felt like I was there forever. Now at 116 lbs. My next goal is 110 lbs. I realize that muscle weighs more than fat, so my goal may be unrealistic. Paul talked about measuring my thighs instead. I just may do that.
Hang in there too if you are in the same boat.
