Happy Holidays ya'll! Well had an amazing time in Vegas a few weeks ago, I great time meeting people, doing photo shoots hanging out with my Savage sisters (and now a few brothers lol) and of course competing! Placing didn't go quite as well as I hoped however according to scores I did make top 10 in bikini though, my sportswear which was a ballerina just killed it for me. It just so happened to be the year of the tutus apparently lol! But wow, what some stiff competition everyone was on point looking fantastic and the show was huge! My class, short class obviously lol, was actually the largest with 45 ladies with the other classes pretty packed out as well! I really can't complain at all with this being my first national Fitness America show and I definitely know I've really gotta step up my sportswear next year!
As for off season this year, well there ain't one! lol. From Thanksgiving to New Year I do ease up a bit and enjoy the holidays. I just focus on making sure I still get in protein at every meal, keep with small portions, and try to avoid the REALLY bad stuff at holiday parties like high calorie mixed drinks and butter and sugar loaded foods. I also try to stick with my clean eating other than 2 cheat meals a week (but if it goes to 3 for holiday parties I'm not sweating it, life is just too short) Another big benefit for me is my Isagenix shakes every morning they really help me say no as my cravings are almost eliminated and I'm full and satisfied from the right nutritional balance in them! Aside from nutrition I have backed down on my cardio, just really focused on making my workouts count and using the extra carbs to train even harder! Don't forget guys have fun and enjoy this holiday season but how you end this year determines how you begin next year!!! :o)
Quote of the day:
"Hoodie is up, Headphones on playing some Sick Techno jam... Prepare your self Iron, cause here I am....I'm not here to Socialize, I'm here for Battle..it will be me at War when you hear all the 45s rattle...I'm here to Train, not just dress up and pretend...you will know I dont play when you see the bar bend...I pray for the Lord to make me Strong and Great...as I do rep after rep with a Bone Crushing weight....some say I'm conceited cause I'm not walking around talking and running for gym Mayor... But I'm here to do Battle, so I do not care...when the self inflicted Pain is over, and my daily War ends... That is the time when I'll talk to my friends" ~Adam Weidel
