3 Weeks Out and Counting….

Well, leave it up to me to basically sabotage my prep. Over the last couple weeks my body fat percentage was.not.budging. Frustrating, right? Luckily, my coach and I were able to figure it out now versus after my show. Earlier in my prep when I had a higher caloric intake, I was eating about 5-6 small meals a day because it was just easier that way and I knew all body building preppers ate that way. Then, like a dumby, once my caloric intake got smaller I started only eating three meals a day plus my post workout shakes. My body was going to long without eating so my metabolism started to freeze up and hold onto the food I was eating (because I am obviously in a caloric deficit). WHY DID I DO THAT?! I have always known that 5-6 daily meals is normal for prepping for a show but I ignored that for some reason that I just can’t pinpoint.

After wallowing in the sorrow of my stupidity for a short bit I decided that I am not going to let this get me down any longer. I have been working my butt off day in and day out for months and I am not going to let a little learning experience ruin that. Because that is exactly what this is, a learning experience. This is my first show, I ain’t no expert and I am sure I will mess up again somewhere else down the road. I am already proud of the amount of dedication and determination I have put into this.

So, here I sit, three weeks out from my show. I am already feeling the excitement and adrenaline which I think will make these next few weeks fly by. I have a fridge full of prepped food, I have my reminders in my phone to eat every 2.5 hours and I have my workouts all scheduled out for the week. Bring.it.on. As grueling as this experience has been so far, I wouldn’t change it for the world. I am growing as an individual, enhancing my knowledge in the fitness industry and proving to myself that if I set my mind on something, I will succeed as long as I stay committed.

I don’t have a Kiss recipe for you today but I wanted to share these margaritas with you. I haven’t tried them yet because of my prep but sometime after my show I am thinking of having a little girls night with these on the menu!

Make sure and follow me on snap chat (kissbybrooke) where I share more of my daily eats and my raw, real life!
