Why I Got Started
dot

In May of 2007 we had our second beautiful, healthy baby boy. Unfortunately, as a souvenir, I was left with less than a beautiful physique. I desperately needed a to get back into shape and regain some muscle I lost during pregnancy.

So I decided I would train for my first NPC Figure Competition and I wanted to do the first figure/bodybuilding show of the year. March 2008 was the Vancouver USA Naturals Figure & Bodybuilding Competition, so that was my goal!

How I Did It

I began cleaning up my diet and trying to keep track of my meals throughout November. December 6th was day one of my diet for the competition.

Dieting for the show wasn't easy (especially through the holidays) but I knew what my goal was and nothing was going to stand in my way. I had a great support system through friends and family.

Diet

My diet changed a bit the last 3 weeks…but basically it consisted of 7 meals per day:

Don't forget at least one gallon of water everyday. My carb days were cycled in every 4 days. On the carb days I added oatmeal with splenda and cinnamon or white rice. Couldn't wait for the oatmeal.

I had a cheat day on Valentines Day in which I ate everything I could get my hands on, especially all the holiday cookies and fudge I froze. Restaurants were Sonic, Tony Roma's and Pizza Hut!

My training days circulated every 3 days. I did 3 days of lifting then 1 day of cardio, 3 days of lifting then 1 day of cardio. The cardio days were also my "oh so happy" carb days.

On the cardio days I did 40 minutes of Interval Training in the morning, early morning before my first meal!

Suggestions For Others

If you are a new mom or a mother who is still trying to get the baby fat off from 6 years ago, you can do it! Many people told me "it's so much harder to get the weight off with your second child," it's only as hard as you make it!
