October is going to be an awesome month! It will be a very busy/stressful month, but I am setting the bar high nonetheless. The only way to achieve my dreams is to make goals and smash them
Goal One: Celebrate Josh and my birthdays This is more of a requirement ha ha ha The past couple of years I have been dieting when our birthdays have come along. I hardly indulged. This year they will be free days. No worries, just enjoy our time.
Goal Two: Pack up the house. Yes, we are moving again ha ha ha. Josh has had several meetings with several markets within his company. Everywhere from Wisconsin, Alabama, Chicago, Kentucky, etc We think we know where we are headed, although it has not officially been confirmed. Josh brought home boxes and said start packing, so Zoe and I have done just that! Zoe has made sure to sign all the boxes with her stuff in them ha ha, we wouldn’t want her stuff to get misplaced We are excited for the next adventure!!!!
Goal Three: To face the fluff. What I mean by this, is I still go back and forth with gaining weight. Not so much the scale per say, but the fluff hanging over my pants, tighter sports bras, tighter everything…. Somedays it doesn’t bother me at all, other days it’s really hard for me. part of it is the fact that it is so stinkin’ hot here. We had a stint of fall weather, then right back in to the upper 80’s lower 90’s. Those fall/winter clothes keep me more covered, therefore less self conscious ha ha ha Definitely a mental battle I am still fighting. I have felt better the past couple of weeks. I just need to keep my focus on my ultimate goals! Josh has been awesome with helping boost my self esteem. He thinks part of my issue is I tend to compare with what I see on social networks. I think he might be right ha ha ha. I never see many women who are “bulking”. They all seem to go into hiding and never post pics. I completely understand why. I have a hard time posting them myself, but I want to stay true to my journey and let everyone see the process I am going through. Gah the mind games ha ha ha
Goal Four: With the moving process, I have a tendency to slack on Zoe’s lesson time. Last move I did pretty good with keeping up on it and I plan on keeping her focused this time around as well. She has already made her goal list for the month and actually had it started last week ha ha ha. Gotta love an over-achiever
Goal Five: I want to hit a PR on at least exercise each day. It is important to me to grow this off season and to do so, I need to lift heavy. I still plan on leaving my ego at the door, because keeping proper form is also important. I just know to really maximize my gains, I need to be pushing myself to the limits. Basically if I get to my last set and I am lifting 3 or more. I will add a set to push out at least one at a heaver weight.
Goal Six: Continue to keep main focus on Back and Delts. Again, those are the sweet spots in figure and my weakest points. I have seen better gains this past month. I have made my back and my delt training much harder and longer with a good burnout session at the end of each which I feel has made a huge difference. I spend most of my week in pain and with ice packs on random parts of my body, but I am growing
My Motivation ;-)
Goal Seven: Posing, posing, posing practice. My physique is not the only thing to work on this off season. I need to perfect my posing. In prep, I thought I had it down. I thought I knew what to expect. Even though I know it was more difficult that it looked, I had no clue really how HARD it is on stage. Holding the poses is important. They had us holding for what seemed like forever and I wasn’t ready, or conditioned for that. I also forgot to move my hair on back pose. I am so use to it being up, that it completely slipped my mind. I didn’t realize till I saw the photos later. My stage presence is as important as my physique
October marks the one year mark before I hit the stage again. I am starting it strong and plan on keeping the momentum up!!! Hope you all have set the bar high and are ready to make October YOUR definitive month!
