Some notes/thoughts of the previous prep week - I need to get more organized with my posing practice and ab work. Those are two things that are very easy for me to neglect and that I need to incorporate more now that I am 8 weeks out. So, this upcoming week, it will be a goal of mine to make those 2 things a regular part of my plan. I am feeling great as far as the training, cardio, and diet all go. I really really enjoy my workouts and like pushing hard on the weights. Well, as hard as I can with dieting since my strength is already dropping a little on various things (especially legs!). My cardio isn't killing me either since I am doing things I enjoy, like spin. And I am enjoying my spin even more now. I have recently switched to a closer gym that does not have near as good spin classes as my old gym which was bumming me out because I NEED the hard core spin cardio during prep more than ever. So, my old gym was very nice after I spoke to them and they are allowing me to be a "member" until mid November so I can still go there the few times a week I want to spin. Yippee!!!!  

Last, but certainly not least, I heard from my suit designer that she is hoping to send out my suit by Wednesday of next week. I cannot wait to see it! Too bad I won't have it in time for my 8 weeks out progress pictures coming to a post near you tomorrow 😉
