I hadn't been too nervous in the past weeks but now with only 3 weeks to go my heart races every time I imagine myself getting up on stage in less than a month's time, yikes!  Can't believe how these past weeks have gone so fast but I think I need more time as I'm not sure I'm going to be ready. I don't feel as lean as I should be and my body is taking its own sweet time to get down to my target of 51kg.

Today I'm 53kg and 11.58% bodyfat. I guess I haven't done too badly considering at the start of the year where I was 60kg and 23%. But hey in the real world I'd be super happy with 53kg but this is bodybuilding we're talking about so we just got to go that extra mile to get that extra definition.

I'm throwing everything at it in an effort to drop weight.  I'm having more lower carb days and increasing protein, cutting down portion size but squeezing in another snack - so basically same calories consumed. Still doing plenty of cardio. And I can say categorically that I'm being honest with my diet and eating super clean, and haven't even had a sniff of a protein bar, chocolate or a trim flat white.  3 weeks can be a long time in bodybuilding and lots of things can change with slight changes in diet so I'll just make some changes and see what happens.


At the beginning of this journey, I wanted to do the precontest dieting and training as healthily as I can and so far, despite my stubborn body, I'm feeling great and healthy.  I have done this without too many pills and potions, but sticking to the basic supplements.  I can't handle too many additives in my body so have used thermos sparingly throughout my preparation as I function better that way without too much ‘hype'. 

Needless to say, but I will, I'm absolutely 100% natural and free of any enhanced substances.  Hey if I was on anything, I'd be super dooper lean by now!!  I have no problem with people using as its their body, but just be honest about it.

But no matter how much I want (and need) to lose the weight, I won't ‘go to the dark side' for the short term loss as I know the weight will come back double fast.  I want to compete knowing that I've done everything I could as honestly as I can to achieve what I did with what I have. Just look at how many people who've been on stuff and a couple weeks later blow up like a balloon.  Not nice.  At least I know if my weight goes off slow, it'll come back slow - or stay off for good - here's hoping!

Speaking of substances, of the tanning kind.  I tested the Kabakoff contest colour this week to make sure I wasn't going to go puffy or breakout in a rash - being the sensitive girl that I am.  I put on a couple of coats and left it on for a few days and I didn't get a reaction from it so I'll be using it in Samoa. 

Check out my video to see how you put it on! Its really easy and much easier than the Dream Tan spray system.  The Kabakoff is much runnier so you can paint a lot faster, and dries a lot faster too.

    This week I'm picking up my super bootiful bikini from Ali Gascoine who's weaved her magic into them. Hopefully the judges will be so bamboozled by the bikini they won't notice my flaws! oh well worth a try eh. 

Oh well better go and try to get another gram or 2 of bodyfat this week.

Enjoy the vids!
