Coming out of the mouth of anyone I view is as an amazing compliment...but coming from the new trainer at my gym, it made me downright beam with pride. All I want for myself is to be seen as a fit, athlete. My body will never be skinny and I'm ok with that! I'm Caribbean...I need a booty to shake ;-) Needless to say, that was the best compliment I could have received. I'm even more proud of my 2% decrease in body fat over the past few months, especially considering I didn't have access to a weight room for 1 month. I was so afraid that I'd be at the same body fat or have gained some back without access to my beloved weights, but I lost 2% and I couldn't be happier. Now I'm 4.2% away from my goal body fat percentage. The scary part is that I'm 126 pounds of muscle. That's just crazy to me!
In preparation for my trip to the DR, I'm really cracking down on my nutrition. I posted a picture on my desktop for motivation throughout the workday. It's always the at home part that's hardest for me. Well, last night I passed the test with flying colors. I was starving by dinner time because I had to run to the grocery store, but I stuck with my portions (and carb allowance) and ate slowly. I was still hungry after I finished eating, but I just let the food sink in there and after about 15 more minutes I was ok. Even as I started to get hungry before bed, I just lie there watching LOST and drinking water...trying to ignore my stomach. For further motivation, I hung my bikini up right next to my bedroom door. That way it's the first thing I see when I wake up and the last thing I see before I go to bed. I'm going to look so hot for my trip. I wonder how you say 'Lean Vixen' in Spanish. haha.
