MY FIRST FITNESS COMPETITION MONTH 2 PROGRESS

Sunday, March 18, 2012

Hey Sparkfriends!

Busy, busy times!! I got my exam results back last week and I passed my fitness theory exam which means I am a BCPRA Certified Fitness Leader :) - I can now register for my specialty module which is weight-training, that starts up in May.

My competition is fast approaching!! Only two weeks left to train! I am feeling pretty confident about all my events, and proud to say I can flip a 280lb tire unassisted 6 times!
I am getting stronger everyday :)

I lost 2 lbs and 1.5% body fat at the last weigh-in...Not thrilled about losing weight as I am trying to build muscle, my trainer says I have to eat more calories if I am going to continue doing the cardio - I think I will just cut back slightly on the cardio and add a bit more calories, if I add an extra 500 cals a day like she suggests I will be eating 2700 cals a day!! I can't eat that much.

Well that's about it for now, hope you all are finding these last few days of Winter to be happy ones!!

Take care!!!

Below is a recent pic, I am happy with my progress so far!!

    I'm 4'9, 95 lbs and I was eating 2500 calories to build muscle while doing no cardio. You Can eat that much, you just have to get used to it. Having shakes or liquid meals helps get it down. Your abs look awesome!
