After some interesting exchanges with Josh via my on-line training journal, its been decided that my diet will get stricter this week. I think it'll be very much a comp prep diet and I have just under 24 weeks to go. This is both exciting and scary and I'm feeling lots of different emotions around this.

I worry about sticking to a strict diet for that long. How will I handle social occassions, missing some of the foods I love and other's reactions/expectations? I dont even think my WH realises what the next 24 weeks will be like. I suspect he wont handle it well.

But I'm also excited by the prospect of finally seeing some noticeable improvements. Yes I know I have to put the effort in and put it in consistently day after day, week after week to achieve this but I'm working on my mindset being in totally the right place to enable me to stop stuffing around and ACHIEVE.

The time has really come to say good-bye to the "Sin Now - Pray Later" party girl and just get on with it.

Hey Magda,

I think the key to success is having a very strong image of yourself achieving success - a burning reason WHY you are doing this, then it makes the achievement much easier. You don't need to reinvent the wheel, just be nice and consistent.

I think you are doing well starting 24 weeks out.I'm 14 weeks out and still find that a long time.But as you know keep at it and it will all become habit.Keep training hard and heavy,eat right and drink lots of water.(Its as easy as that) Right???Sounds easy.Its all a mind a game.Believe me.Keep at it.It will be worth it.
