I’ve picked two shows, but I need to get the exact dates for them. The first one I below is in June, and the second will be in August. I’m still wiffle waffling between whether to compete in bikini or figure. I’ve made a lot more progress over the last 14 weeks than I had noticed.
Then I did back and biceps yesterday… I’ve been in the gym 12 of the last 14 days. Today is a rest day.
I’m starting to get back up above body weight on some of my exercises finally. I pulled a 140lb dead lift for 4 reps for the first time too.
We just finished up at dollywood, and my mom came and drove, so I have some time to kill since I’m not driving. I don’t remember the last thing I wrote about, so as of Sunday I am down 7 pounds from week 6. I hadn’t show any loss in a few weeks so while 7lbs in one week is a lot, it had been building for awhile. I’m pretty certain most of it came off of my butt. Nothing I can do about that but work harder to build muscle there, or at least maintain what is there.
C and I went to a haunted house this weekend, I had never been to one before and we had a lot of fun.
I think he is planning on starting a 6 week shred some time soon? I don’t think he has any desire to compete just wants to lose the last few pounds he’s been hanging on to. I think he looks great how he is but I would never tell anyone not to strive to better themself. Should be interesting. We generally already work out together once or twice a week.
Anyways here is my current progress pictures
The grey and grey is week 6&7
This weeks back pictures
Nothing super major. Swapped my main preworkout (platinum pre) for amino energy and saving the platinum pre for days I train after work or when I’m totally exhausted. I’m also going to try some silk amino acids post work out and have added in a small amount of creatine. I am expecting to see a small gain of water weight from that, but am interested to see what other gains come with it.
After 3-4 weeks of showing no loss, I had 4lbs drop off in 2 days. Despite the lack of loss, I have leaned out a lot. Except my shoulders where over the last 6 weeks I have put on 3 inches around. So not complaining about that I have been lifting my butt off. I’m down almost 5 inches at the most narrow part of my waist. I’ve taken an inch off my hips, and more than I want to admit has come off my chest.
Anyways picture time!
week 1 and week 6^
From today’s workout (I have a cold and pushed through and it sucked but I’m glad I did it.
Today I discovered I have new muscles showing! Eek! So excited and proud!
My triceps and shoulders are starting to pop out! I can’t wait for my next hard push in August!
