Oh S*%t

Here we go.
I'm 3 days into prep for a show in April.
Part of me is super excited.
Part of me is scared poopless, again.

I have been working with a coach since last March.
Let's put it this way, at the moment, I'm still eating so much food that I really do feel as though I am going to puke every night.
I guess that's good.
We had been increasing my intake over this past year, eliminating my junk, but I had my treats.
The only difference is that now I get no treats.
In all honesty, I'm looking forward to when we begin to cut back some.
Wait, did I just say that?

As I mentioned previously, I'm changing categories.
I'm going to give Physique a go.
This should be very, very interesting.
April makes two years since I last stepped on stage.
I have been working through that time, though only really rigorously this past year.
Still, it should be interesting to see the changes in those two years.
 At the same time, I know that I have TONS to go to have any real chance in the category.

I also really love my coach.  She is beautiful, inside and out.
Truly, you would not believe the stuff she does for her girls/guys that has absolutely nothing to do with the gym.  She helps and changes people's lives and goes out of her way to help the people that she knows.  THAT is truly inspiring.
Yeah, you probably know who she is.
Yes, she competed in the Physique at Olympia.
With that said, she's takes no bull either.
She expects you to do your plan and will call you on your b.s.

I will tell you this.
It has nothing to do with training or competing.
I still question my sanity of it though.
Every morning, I wake up and notice more and more wrinkles.
Under the eyes are becoming more and more crepe paper like.
Lines are getting deeper.
I'm slathering on the creams.
I never thought that I would ever consider getting stuff "done."
However, as 41 creeps up on me, I'm starting to think more and more about just that.
Yes, I'm getting more vain as I get older and have not quite accepted the appearance of aging just yet.
That's something to work on.

As a side note:
I would like to change the name of my blog and some other parts.
Suggestions, ideas?

OOOH! So exciting! I think the gals who do physique are gorgeous! Ins't it funny how we both love and dread leaning out? Conscious and subconscious fighting the inevitable: change. YAY for me though! I get to live vicariously through you!

I actually DON'T know your coach!? DLB? Sarah Hurrle?

You guessed it Lacey!
It's Sara Hurrle. Incredible woman, inside and out and kicks my ass, hardcore.

Umm....totally jealous that you're working with Sara and I'm giddy with the idea of you doing physique!
