Easter Sunday started my 12 week countdown to the Adela Garcia Classic. For those of you rational people out there who have no idea what a female bodybuilding show prep is like, allow me to share.
Cardio increases big time. Diet gets VERY strict. Six meals a day, mostly egg whites and like 1/3 of a cup of brown rice. No salt. No artificial sweeteners. No protein pudding. No alcohol.
If you break any of these rules you will end up on your trainer’s s*** list. He/she will glare at you as if to say, “Go to Hell. Go directly to Hell. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200.”
Knowing that a) my 12 week countdown was approaching and b) my five-year-old likes to nark me out to my trainer I handed both items effectively thus:
Lisa: “I would like to eat a chocolate bunny tomorrow before my 12 week diet down. R u ok with this? I want it in writing in case my kid asks for it.
Mel: “Bahaaa!! Absolutely 🙂 enjoy!
I was then instructed to take my progress pics immediately upon waking and email them to her (along with my weight) and enjoy the bunny thereafter.
Wow! I got a note from the teacher that says I can eat a chocolate bunny!!!!!
Morning starts and ends. Ushered with the husband for Easter service for Austin Stone. (15,000+ people attended! Texans love them some Jesus!) Did not take the progress pictures. Did eat two egg-potato-cheese tacos served to all church volunteers.
Afternoon starts and ends. I text Mel that I will be taking a nap and will send pics later. I’m sure sleep will magically burn several thousand calories, giving me abs of steel for my photo shoot.
One should not allow photos of oneself to be taken in a posing bikini after eating crap all day.
I sent the pictures.
Lisa: Ok, so about my weight…
Confessed the gory details. Acknowledged my off season pics were better than those pathetic pics from this
morning afternoon evening. Hu-mil-i-ty: 12 Week Progress Pics.
Mel: Oh well – gets ya motivated!
Evil chocolate bunnies.
Do you ever go a little crazy with the food right before you know you’re about to start a diet?
