Hey y'all!  I'm actually writing this post while sitting on the beach!

So far this is the only upside I've found to my kids being gone.  I can sit back, relax, do some blogging, read a magazine, and work on some stuff for clients.  I don't have to watch anyone while I'm here, I don't have to worry about a kid drowning, and I don't have to entertain anyone.

Progress Picture

Due to the fact that the close up photos show a much more definition my coach has agreed to let me do close up progress photos from now on.  

Honestly on vacation my diet was followed perfectly.  How many people can say that??!!??  The only days that I messed up were our traveling days and I didn't cheat or overeat on those days I actually didn't eat ENOUGH.
Tuesday {my birthday} was the start of my new plan.  Did I cheat?  A little.  {Note:  Protein powder canNOT be used as a substitute for sugar in meringue.  The whole thing goes flat.}  The rest of the week has been spot on.

Tuesday through today's workouts were incredible.  I have been pushing myself, hitting every workout super hard and making myself proud.  I'm 11 weeks away from my first competition and if I keep going like this I know I'll place!

For this week's link up with Jen at the favorite of the week is, place to workout.  Honestly it depends on what I'm working on.  If it's weight training I much prefer to be in the gym.  For cardio?  Outside most definitely.  I used to pride myself on the fact that I didn't need a gym to workout.  But, since I started lifting weights I knew that I had to get into the gym.
