  1. Haha, and at the time, I didn't think I was that lean! Yep agree, always at some point during the week before, I looked better, but did differ too between start of and later in the week. Hey ho!
  2. Ahh no way, so sorry to hear this! Hope everything goes ok. Health is more important than any show, focus on getting yourself right again. I know it's scary when docs talk about tests etc and what they are testing for but try not to panic too much (know its easier said than done) but least they're acting on it straight away and if you've had similar problems in the past, chances are that the extreme stress and pressure your bodies been under through prep has maybe triggered it off but maybe worse this time due to prep being alien to your body. Hope so anyway. Never nice to be faced with health issues, I've just this week got the all clear for a few health issues that cropped up a few weeks ago, scary at the time but least the ball's rolling now and they're dealing with it asap. Anyway, going forward, least you now know what prep entails, and can use the info from this prep to help you in the future with stuff like length (were you happy with how long/progress etc) and just generally what you go through mentally etc, so you can plan next time with this knowledge. Take care anyway and get well soon!
  3. Thank you, yep all good, feels ace not to be constantly stressed! Yeah, can't wait! First holiday in two years so much needed! Ahh thank you! Hopefully it lasts for a bit!
  4. Liquid Sun Rayz is a great tan and they do a home product Also Jan Tana is good. Always worth doing a trial run though before so you know the tan suits you, tans can develop/look different on different skin types.
  5. This pic is the pic I took just as I was about to start training, 7 years ago Fast forward 7 years..... And this was my first competition 6 years ago And these are from comps in May this year
  6. I can't see a post bit from others posts I'm thinking you've had some very shitty stuff going on. So sorry to hear that and I hope you and your family are all ok. Big hugs and take care. X
  7. Hey, hope all going well, not long now?! Have you got any issues with gluten? Do you have oats, and if so, do you find yourself more bloated afterwards? Maybe worth trying gluten free oats as my friend had a similar issue. Also, have you ever tried peppermint oil capsules/tea? Also can help with bloating, maybe worth trying too. Think there's a pepeerminy green tea which is good, and if you get a fridge jug, put a few bags in and leave to chill it's also a nice refreshing change from just normal water.
  8. Been a busy few weeks, catching up on life which feels great, eating, chilling, going out, new job and training hard. New jobs been a big focus, been there 3 weeks and love it, was scary moving on but I was so stressed, needed to move and I've got lucky, new jobs ace. Feel like a different person, de-stressed, loving training heavy again, and got a holiday booked too in 5 weeks, party holiday with the girls so need to get rid of a bit of chub now. Trainings going well, been doing a heavy program, lots of upper, for the last month, not sure what the next step is but all good! Bit of cardio too but just going to step it up a little til the holiday. Main overall focus is to gain size over the next few months so not going go diet drastically, just a little bit to feel a bit more comfortable getting in a bikini again!
  9. Most people will go through feeling like this during prep, even the strongest minded person will, it's normal, it's a complete head mess at times but head down and crack on. You'll get crap days where you wanna curl up into a ball and think sod it, then the next day or literally a few hours later, you'll be fine, motivated and although tired, you'll just be thinking about getting on that stage and you push past the feeling of crap and soldier on! As already said, each week will get tougher from now on, you're getting to the hard point now, but with it comes looking the best you probably ever have, and stepping on stage which is an amazing experience, even more so by getting through prep. It's definitely worth it, just take one day at a time, and soon the excitement kicks in, then that sort of gets you through the last stage of prep.
  10. They say you go to a dark place during prep, I was there a lot, haha, literally for a lot of the last 12 weeks, I just didn't want to talk to anyone, do anything, and I pretty much hated life, but all worth it Thank you
  11. Thank you, I am doing, feels good but can't help feeling a little lazy, haha
  12. Haha, too true! Like death, haha! Seriously, it was tough going, mentally and physically. First comp I came in pretty lean, and didn't really drop weight after that, just tightened up more so being at that lean point for 9 weeks, it was horrific at times, but worth it and I did it, so it was an achievement in itself! Yeah that's my thinking, more time to grow, plus having a year off dieting, when I start prep, things should move well as my body's had a decent break. I had a week of total rest but I'm the same, find it hard to rest, plus started a new job today so holidays are out at the moment. But it's nice just to be more relaxed and have a social life again, so I do feel rested now. Ahh thank you will be trying my best as always!
  13. Haha, yeah maybe not proper boy boobs, but still got serious chest envy True but we'd end up at opposite sides of the rooms if we went bust to bust Ahh good stuff, sounds like a good plan. No it'll come round fast, couldn't believe how quickly this year came round tbh, and we're now half way through it! Yeah looking in really good condition and definitely helps with prep having less to come off. Will it be Nabba again? Yep, 23 weeks, but 5 shows over a 9 week period was killer! Looking back, not sure how I survived! Haha, full and curvy, but feel huge after being so lean. I'm not sure yet for next year, got some thinking to do. I need to add some size, so at the minute, thinking about a full year out, then starting prep this time next year for Oct shows. Really want to qualify for the PCA finals again, it was an awesome final, but that's in October next year, so would maybe do qualifiers around Sept/Oct next year, then could do Nabba UK and England shows too, and maybe leave the April/May season, sacrifice it to have another 6 months off season, want to do some damage next year but I'll just have to see nearer the time.
  14. Haha, reckon about EEEEE - the E being for Epic I was chuffed my off season boobs are back, now I feel like I've got boy boobs again after seeing that pic! Good good, glad all is good. Any competition plans yet? Yeah all good thanks, rested and recharged after prep, and fat Needed it though, I was wrecked afterwards, brutal and long prep but was happy with this season, just need to grow now for next year! Thank you!
  15. Thank you!
