A Day @ Coeur D'Alene

Had a fabulous time at the lake. Lots of people out there today. Gotta take advantage of the few weekends we have left!!! No wakeboarding this time.....I'm too scaried to get hurt AND it was super choppy.
I did very well today. One day down, 54 to go! It was tough being around any junk food and resisting, but, alas, I DID RESIST!!! Cookies, chips, candy, you name it................Seriously, I'm pretty happy I stayed on the program!

*****I HAVE A CHOREOGRAPHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!******************
I really thought I'd be able to put a routine together myself.....but that didn't work, so I am working with Lishia Dean ( I sent her my music and will get the routine via DVD as soon as she can finish it!!!!!!!!!!
What a relief!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tomorrow is Back & of course, more cardio!

I TOOK PROGRESS PIX...............

and then I indulged in Dairy Queen.............. :S
But I feel great. I think it's easy to "mentally" beat yourself up when you cheat, but I think it's a necessary evil. It gives me reason to work hard this next 8 weeks. I expect my new diet as early as tomorrow, as late as MAYBE tuesday. Until then I'm sticking to what I have, and "up"ing if it wasn't intense already! =)
I am confident I'm in good/great shape.........BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not in STAGE SHAPE. I WILL be in 8 weeks, though. It's clicked that I'm doing this and I'm doing it FULL-FORCE. Why can't I bust my ass just like the Pro's?
My motto for the next 56 DAYS::::::::::

**********"PREPARE LIKE A PRO"********** WHY NOT?!?!?!?!?!

Tomorrow I take pix for my 8 week out diet. I'm sooo excited to really buckle down and hit it hard this next 2 months. Yesterday was Turbokick & a combined Chest/back workout. Today was AM cardio, class this evening & LEGS!!!!!
Friday is shoulders & more cardio. Lots and lots of cardio & diet right ON!!!!!!!! OH MY GOODNESS! I got my one piece suit this week and should get my 2 piece next week! Yeah, talk about motivation. It fits, it's just seriously SNUGGGG................. =)
I'm trying to post EVERYDAY, even if it's short. Posting really helps me see my progress, obviously, and it's fun to look back a few weeks & see what worked, and what didn't.
ALL IS WELL!!!!!!!!!!! TO FELLOW COMPETITIORS: KEEP TRAINING HARD, & PREPARE TO ROCK THAT STAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
