Weight: 136.2 lbs, 24.3% body fat - no idea what's going on here. Ate a nice high-fat breakfast & drank a shit ton of coffee, trying to flush things through before the meet. I definitely want to give a go at the whole water manipulation thing sometime, if only to better understand how it all works.
Sleep: 7.5 hours in bed, slept straight through, woke naturally, no complaints!
Meet: ZOMG this was SO MUCH FUN. Hit my main goals, logged bench & deadlift PRs, and did I mention SO MUCH FUN? Icing on the cake for Joy & I to see what our training accomplished.
Incredibly inspiring seeing what the super strong women could do; it made me very excited to imagine where I can get some day! I only trained for this deal for 10 weeks. What happens in 10 months? 10 years? WORLD DOMINATION, that's what happens!
Bonus: being weak as a kitten, I squatted first, which made me the star of a video of the first ever competitive lift at NSS!
Afterward, Joy & Heidi & I celebrated with breakfast at Traveler's Inn (breakfast is the easiest dairy- & grain-free meal out), which was excellent, as I've never hung out with Heidi before, and Joy & I literally have never socialized outside work or a gym. 'Twas lovely.
Then, since my husband has been working his ass off just like me & we haven't seen each other, I made him join me with the lifting crew at the Fire Station, where the special was ribs (and they were perfection) and the company was pretty hilarious. Hoping the high-weight lifting stories inspired the hubster to get his ass going on the program I wrote him.
Up until today, most of 2012 sucked hairy pig ass. But today made up for all of it. Best day in AGES!!
Quote of the day:
Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal: my strength lies solely in my tenacity.
(Ed note: but I still wore my Wonder Woman underpants, for an extra dose of strength!)
