So I'm for real when I say "I'm back". Last go back in October was a failed attempt at faking it till I make it. I wasn't truly inspired to write again, and frankly, didn't feel like I had the time. Well, guess what, I'll never have enough time. That's like saying, "we're waiting to have enough money to have kids." or "I messed up today, I'll start my diet tomorrow, promise."
Speaking of diets...like how I did that?...my contest prep is not only in full swing, but I'm only 5 measly weeks away from my first comp of the season!!! Eeek!!!!! The Phil Heath Classic is being held in Houston at the Bayou Music Center on March 15. My coach, Jeff Dwelle, is the same awesome dude I used last time. This time his words were, "we'll keep you fuller longer". That sounded really nice. I think that longer period is up, though. *cue stomach grumble* I'm not complaining. Really, I promise. I eat all dang day. I just also burn crazy calories all dang day because of all the dang muscle I put on. Dang!
You know what else? I'm seeing abs. I've NEVER seen abs on myself. By abs, I mean a tiny two back and some obliques. I'll take it. As I sit here and drink my delish Green Mountain Caramel Sweet Cream kcup black, yes black, I'm **omg, I just clicked the X on my browser as I closed out other tabs and I about died...thankfully, I didn't have to go back and write this masterpiece that will be maybe enjoyed by three people.** where was I? oh yes, black coffee. I'm AH-MAZED at the fact that in a mere 15 weeks, I've changed my body, yet again...and in my opinion, even better than my last go. Perfect eating and crazy lifting can do that, I guess.
Since I can only "pin" yummy foods, I've had to shift my focus to other favorite things. My list for January is as follows:
*Seagram's Sparkling Seltzer Water in Black Raspberry "mixed" with a to-go packet of Raspberry Lemonade Crystal Light. Oh yum. I'm not a fan of diet drinks or artificial sugar, but will have one of these when my sugar cravings are making me NUTSO.
*Stride Gum - Sour Patch Kids flavors. I've only found this gum at the Super Target in Plano, but apparently you can buy it in bulk on Amazon. It's awesomesauce. Enough said.
*YSL Volutpte Sheer Candy in #4. It's scary pink, but is a super smooth gloss that gives the perfect pink pout. I'm a gloss junkie and typically bounce around, but this one has been my go-to since being gifted it for my birthday in December. Thanks Jess!! You can see it here: YSL Volupte Sheer Candy I have the "Succulent Pomegranate". Aren't the tubes glam??
I'm super excited not only for my show in March, but the following weekend is the Nordstrom Beauty Trend Show!! It's such a fun event and put on beautifully. I for one look forward to waking up at 6am on a Saturday for that!
Follow me on Instagram @yogtricia and Facebook! I'll be posting every week with my updates as the comp gets closer and closer along with my fave finds!! Have a great weekend!!
