21 Days & COUNTING!!!!!!!!!!

So I clicked on "2007" (under Blog Archive, right under all the pix on the right side) which shows EVERY post I've done since May 5th. It's amazing. I've really had some High & low points (what journey doesn't...) but there's been a couple things I haven't even remembered. I'm really happy I decided to keep this blog, and I intend on using if for a LONG time! Thank you to everyone who has written a comment, and thanks, also to those who are just keeping tabs on me! I really do appreciate it! :-)
Well, as the title shows........ I'm TWENTY ONE DAYS OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe it. I was easily in the 100's when I first started "123 days to go..." Gosh, it's finally coming. My goal for the next 21 days is to stay consistent with the nutrition and keep pumping out the cardio. Surprisingly, I'm not sick of ANY aspect of contest prep. I actually love it. It's my hobby and it keeps me busy.
I'm off to the gym to lift & do some cardio and then I'll head back at 5:30 for bootcamp.
MUCH LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAPPY FRIDAY

Active Rest

My parents are training for a 1/2 (my mom) and Full (my dad) Marathon in October. (HOW COOL IS THAT???) They have days in their training regiment that allows for REST days. My dad tells me that rest means REST, no ifs, ands or buts.
Well, that doesn't work in my case. I can't NOT do anything. I have to at least do something active everyday. Today my muscles rested but I did a little cardio. My new nutrition is awesome and I'd like to think I'm still leaning up. No, I know I am. I'm really happy with how my back is coming along. I feel so strong, it rocks. Tomorrow is leg work and........YA YA YA, I'm FINALLY teaching again this week!! I teach TurboKick tomorrow and my core central class thursday. I'm so exciting to be back, I know my ankle is still healing, but it's doing great. I'll make sure and brace it and ice it after.
Also, I'm planning on practicing my routine this week...........HOLLLLAAAHHHH!!!
