One girl's journey into the world of Figure competition

Happy Birthday To Me

So instead of celebrating my birthday on stage and then celebrating my birthday with a delicious and much awaited post-competition meal, I will continue on the straight and narrow path to competition (see previous post).


I took some serious inspiration from Abs of Steel (a fantastic and well-writtem blog if you haven’t yet subscribed) and woke up “early” this Saturday morning and was at the gym by 9AM.  I kicked out a great workout:

Squats (6 sets)
Deadlifts (4 sets)
Plyo jumps super-setted with leg press (4 sets)
Glute bridge super-setted with one legged lunges (4 sets)
Leg extensions (4 sets)
Leg curls (4 sets)

All followed by a 45 minute spin class – very sweaty.  

Back to the apartment for 6 egg whites, 140gm tilapia, 125 gm greenbeans (by that time it was 12:30PM and I had only eaten 1/2 a scoop of whey protein + supplements).  

Onward we go today, tomorrow and the next 2 weeks, until the job is done.

Happy birthday to me!

  2. Happy Birthday Girl! It really sucks that your competition was pushed back but kudos for making the best of it. 2 more weeks to ensure you’re in the best possible shape you can be!!!

  3. Hope you had a great Birthday, anyway! Just think – you’ve got more time to tighten up the areas you want to tighten up (if you need to). I think you look great so far! Post more progress pics! You keep me encouraged – THANK YOU!
