So it’s been a week since my first fitness model comp. I allowed myself a week to eat whatever I liked without guilt. To be honest, I can’t believe I used to eat all this sugary, sweet, rich foods. Oh my gosh!!
I haven’t eaten crap all week. I’ve had salads and chicken for lunch, relatively normal breakfasts and dinners… it’s just all the extra stuff that’s been the bad stuff – chocolate, iced vovo biscuits, subway white-choc macadamia cookies, TV snacks, custard, ice cream… you name it! ;)
At the start of the week I had all intentions of returning to crossfit 5 days a week, but on Tuesday I started to feel yuk with a cold – and by Wednesday I had a full blown sore throat, runny nose. I stayed home from work on Wednesday and Thursday to rest. Oh boy did I need to rest, I slept in and relaxed on the couch all day.
I’ve put on approx 3kg since competition day. Given that I was dehydrated as hell on the day, most of it will be fluid. But I know my body has needed this rest. I don’t feel guilty about what I’ve eaten at all.
I’ve now had two weeks off (bar two workouts) of all exercise and am keen to get back into crossfit, and surprisingly back into running (even though it’s starting to get humid out there!)
I’ll be touching base with my coach, Marnie to evaluate how I went and look at my next steps between now and April/May when I want to compete again in a couple of fitness model comps. I’m keen to work out a plan for both exercise and an eating plan. I want to build muscles, build my shoulders, define my abs, and lean out my legs a lot more and work out my booty.
I’ll defintely be checking back in here once I have my plan.
