Change of plans....

I'm not a very spontaneous person.  In fact, I am quite the opposite.  I like routines.  I like plans.  I do not like things getting in the way of said routines, or plans.  A couple of weeks ago I decided that I needed to get my body fat tested.  I have in the past had it checked at the gym using the pinch method when I was prepping for shows and in high school (years ago, we won't get into exactly how many year ago this was) I had it done a more effective way and I believe it was on the pretty low end back then for a female (in the 18-20 % range).  Anyway my friend and co worker Janetha has been trying to convince me to go to the University and get the Bodpod test done for a while now.  I have been terrified of this.  I don't weigh myself regularly.  I don't really like knowing my numbers.  It scares me but I do know that I have lost a bit of weight over the last few months and though it might be a good reference point so I went.  I was pretty surprised.  Pleasantly surprised actually.  I am glad I went and glad to have an idea as to where my body is right now.  Time to buckle down!

Now... I was planning on competing March 30th here in Utah, but as time is ticking (or not ticking) I am feeling like I am just ready... I started looking into some other shows and have decided that I am going to do a show in 4 weeks :)  March 9th! NPC Musclecontest 2013 here I come.  This has come up for a few different reasons.  One reason (not gonna lie) is because I'm freezing my butt off here (literally).  I am craving warmth, and something familiar, and honestly... I really miss California.  Plus its my favorite competition.  Its my favorite because it was my very first competition EVER back in 2009, and then it was one year later in 2010 that I came back and took the over all win for Figure and got my sword.  And if those aren't good enough reasons for you... I'm just ready you guys.  I'm leaning out faster than expected, and I am ready to kill it.  I have my suit (which is gorgeous!), I have my new heels, I have all the tanner I need.  The only thing missing is a plane ticket, someone to paint me and someone to stop me!

So.. what the heck am I waiting for???  California... here I come!

4 weeks out!  Whoop!

I'm still competing March 30th here in Utah too... I want all the stage time I can get this year in preparation for USA's (in hopes that I can get the nerves to go this year).
