Go Time!

This isn't my first time dieting, so I know what to expect. I know to expect certain changes in my body and my mood. What I didn't expect was to feel the changes so soon.

As I sit here, I feel like I have zero energy. Every limb on my body feels like it weighs 100 lbs. I'm tired, but not necessarily sleepy. You know that groggy, heavy feeling you get after waking up from a long nap? That's how I've felt all day. I literally just want to lie in bed and not do anything at all. I know I'm not my usual perky, energetic self, but I can't seem to find the energy to do anything about it. This is the end of the 5th week of my diet, and usually at this point, I feel ok. Normal. Right now, I feel like I'm only a couple weeks out from the show. Perhaps this is a good thing, as it means I'm probably ahead of schedule.

It's been over a week since I've had any carbs, and I'm really craving the Lindt white chocolate truffles that are sitting next to my computer. I've saved up a couple other treats for my carb day tomorrow, and I'm really having a tough time keeping my hands off them. My last carb day was last Thursday, Christmas Eve. Tomorrow we're planning on sushi and maybe another carb meal too. My mouth is watering for some sugar and sweets!

We took progress pics this morning. I'm definitely making some progress, which is motivating! I've dropped about 6-7 lbs so far, and I can feel my body tightening up all over.


I'm still too embarrassed to post my back pics. My back is definitely leaning out, but my lower body as yet to catch up.

I just bought a couple bottles of Endorush today so I can function during the day. I just drank some a little while ago, and have a bit of energy (meaning I feel like I can actually get up and walk around as opposed to just lying listlessly in bed). Gotta love contest prep!

Oh, and I've received the official invitation to compete in the Arnold!!! So now it's definitely GO TIME!!
