Ok deep down this is what I wanted all along but I was really doubting myself and the fear of failure was holding me back from just plunging in. The reality is that I'm not starting from a good position. I dont have the luxury of a "muscle building phase" followed by a "diet down phase". I have to work on reducing my body fat NOW albeit slowly and steadily so that I dont have to diet to starvation and cardio til I drop as comp day draws closer.
Can I do it?? Only time and my efforts will tell. But I'm going to give it my best shot. One day at a time. One step at a time. And starting NOW!! Lia your brutally honest comment on my last post was JUST what I needed and I truly thank you for slapping me out of my head-in-the-sand mindset. You know the one where its all like "yeah I'll do it tomorrow". Well tomorrow comes and then another day and another and all that time slips by when I could have (should have) been prepping already. Well I started TODAY!!
I have my weight training program that I put together and now I just need to schedule my cardio. Clean my food up and ditch the treats and most importantly BE CONSISTENT. I'm also going to focus more on using NLP to achieve my goals and keep me focussed and moving forward. Plus I will blog my highs and lows and achievements and disappointments as this is the only place I can communicate regularly about comp stuff.
Despits the headcold lurgie still having a hold on me, I'm feeling good about my decision and the next 6 months.
Cheers all Magda
