Progress update from today’s coach meeting. Even though I ate a bit more food this week, I am still loosing weight and my body fat percentage is now down at 9,7 percent. This means that my coach will (again) add more food to my diet plan, which is perfectly fine with me.
After the meeting, I went to buy jewellery for the competition. This is what I found. I wouldn’t wear the bracelets in my every day life, but for the competition I need a lot of ‘bling’ to attract attenton.
It was crazy busy at work today, and I was so hungry when I got off this afternoon. I am sooo happy I had prepared my dinner, otherwise it’s too easy to get tempted to eat something unhealthy.
Tomorrow I am going to meet up with my team to workout, practice posing, and have fun. I am really looking forward to it!
I haven’t been drinking since New Years Eve. This surprises people when I tell them, and they ask me why. I am training to be in the best possible shape for the bikini fitness competition in September and I don’t drink because I want to do my best to achieve my dream.
It always takes time for people to accept changes, especially when I used to drink. After telling my friends that I am following my dream to become a fitness athlete, they were relatively fast at accepting my decision and have been cool with it from the beginning. Now my friends know why and don’t ask me anymore. Now it’s just ‘normal’. They are very understanding and don’t care if I drink cola or vodka, as long as I dance and sing along with them.
The past five months I haven’t had the same desire to go out in the weekends as I had last year when I was still drinking. I don’t know if it’s because I am not drinking now, if I just don’t see the purpose of going out every weekend anymore, or if I am just really focused on this fitness journey. Mostly, I just go to the pre-parties and then straight home, when people are going into town. I am glad I don’t feel like drinking and going out all the time because then it would suck not to be able to. I am lucky the people around me accept my choices and support me.
