Weekly check in with coach Jerry today! After a week of drop sets I'm down from 10.8% to 10.5% body fat! Not exactly sure about my weight because I forgot to step on the scale until after my breakfast and workout. Those drop sets are brutal, but they're paying off!

I've had a really great training week, and have been able to push hard. I've also been very strict with my food intake and have followed my meal plans exactly. Short term I'm looking forward to another hard push week next week and long term I'm looking forward to being able to add lean muscle mass over the next months!

Ultrarunning is hard. Really really hard. But competition prep took hard to a whole new level for me. It's not just the training. I love lifting weights. That's the easy part. The diet adds a whole new level. After finishing a long run I would come home and eat like there was no tomorrow! Now, it's egg whites and chicken and rice all day long. Of course, I eat other things too like healthy fats and vegetables but there's no wiggle room. No bowls of cereal or cake on your birthday (yeah, that was bad timing). Bodybuilding is a 24-7 sport. It gets really difficult. Plus, 70 minutes of intervals on a stairmill while completely carb depleted is a new level of pain and suffering.
Despite all that I still want more. I guess I'm just a glutton for punishment. But, just like ultrarunning, along with the pain is the most amazing sense of accomplishment! I built that! I did that! I ran 50 MILES! I competed in a figure competition! And took home a trophy! Yeah, I can't wait to do it again!
Now, for the fun part. Here is my six month transformation!
