Just a little over 2 weeks until my first competition! Seems like yesterday that we were saying 17 WEEKS and now it is right on top of me!

Today is starting my second week of the Intermittent Fasting days.  I just wanted to share a little about that.  Before the fasting, I was just at a stand still.  This past week, I lost 3.4 lbs. AND the best part of it all?? My body fat has decreased 2% in 2 weeks!!  That is A LOT in 2 weeks.  I am now 22% body fat and I am hoping to be in the teens for my competition.  That is one of my personal goals for myself when I started this journey to the stage.

I am loving the Intermittent Fasting actually.  It makes me feel leaner than ever and it really isn't THAT big of a task.  And it is only 2 days a week....and I can do anything a couple days a week right?!

In my mind, I am planning out what I want after the competition since we can have anything we want that night and until noon on Sunday.  I get so giddy when I think about "normal" food. haha.  A few of the things I will have FOR SURE is a honeybun, donuts, trail mix (GOSH I crave this sooooooo bad), peanut butter, those cheesecake bites from Sam's club and ice cream. So, as you can see, I LOVE me some junk! haha.  AND after not having it for 5 months, I think it is well deserved! I am sure some of my organic friends (M.C. for one) is shaking her head right about now.

I am so nervous but yet excited.  I guess everyone that does this has the memory of their very first show and we all have to get through it BUT I will be glad when I have this one under my belt.  Please continue to pray for me and my daughter to stay healthy and injury free! Pray for us to be calm and not compare ourselves to others and remember how far we have come after 60 lbs lost.  Sometimes it is so easy to lose site of our journey and what a big deal this really is!

Thanks for following along!!
