9 weeks in and I am already seeing results :) I am working VERY hard and I have a great coach to write my programs. Rather than just running through the stages of periodization; I am staying in my hypertrophy phase until we see the results we want!

Every girl that does a Figure Competition is going to have a different program. It is all about works for her :) It's all about trial and error...lucky me.
Currently I am not on any sort of strict diet. I had a meeting with Bonnie LeFrak (more on that later) and she said I am as lean as ever so just KEEP EATING and NOT DOING CARDIO. I just need to try to put "good" mass on. I am trying to eat every 3 hrs a good carbohydrate and a protein, and trying to get in 2 BIONIC EDGE WHEY PROTEIN SHAKES per day.
As most of you know it has been quite a few crazy weeks, and to be honest my diet hasn't been at its best. Honestly I haven't cooked in the past month...lots of salads with chicken BBBBBOOOOOORRRRRIIIIIINNNNNGGGGGG
That will all change after this weekend, when I have a little more time to get myself together.
Many people have asked if this training has made my life more difficult, and I am happy to say NO!!! Exactly the opposite :) It has given me something to focus on through some tough times. It has been a challenge that I love to attack full on, for MYSELF! I am just a short ways in and I have already learned SO MUCH
