I knew from talking to other girls who have competed that after the show you do feel a bit "rudderless" so I planned in advance to keep working with my coach for another month to transition me to maintenance. Luckily, I also really want to compete again, so I have some improvements to make and then I will be prepping for stage again for April! I find that I really need that specific goal, so I will always give myself something to work towards. 1971 days ago
Haha, I'm exaggerating a bit, it's not just chicken and broccoli, but mostly! I will be 4 weeks out on Saturday! So excited!!!
Sorry I never really got around to posting that blog about my food intake. I plugged in a couple of typical days and they range from about 1500-1800 a day. It's probably closer to the lower end now that I'm eating fewer carbs. 2005 days ago
Hey girl! The program is structured in progressive weights. So, we're starting various exercises at about 60% max weight, with three sets of 12 reps. If you feel like 10 lbs would be enough for you at 60% you could start there-- they may be too heavy for some exercises, and too light for others. If you're looking to increase your weights set, you could slowly add a new set of DBs to your collection as you need heavier weights in the program! I know a lot of people are working through this challenge from home, and modifying exercises to suit their lives.

Hey! Sorry I haven't gotten back to your questions yet of how many cals my day works out to. I plan to go back and enter in a few of my days to get that info, but I haven't done it yet. I will post a blog when I do! 2066 days ago
