4 Weeks to Competition: 5 Things to Get Done!

Is it FUriday already?!

Sure is my FUriends ;)

Seriously...

I can't believe how fast my fitness competition prep has gone by now that I'm approaching the last 3 weeks (as of tomorrow) before stepping foot on both the Serious About Fitness and Physique Canada stage!

Although I must admit...

Running a 1/2 marathon (you can check out my recap here in case you missed it!)...


And...

My birthday (I love my bday!)...


May have had a little something something to do with the past 7 days going by so fast!

Honestly...

It's been an amazing week!

Did I mention I got some goodies in the mail too?

Check out...
My new #fitlfuential sweat activated tank top!
Love it!
I wore it the day it arrived! :)
#FUFACE

Moving forward...

After a great weekend filled with celebrations and goal achieved...

It was right back to the playing field for me!

The only real change being that...

Running would no longer be found in my routine until post-competition! (This was the plan all along! Although I didn't lose any muscle while training for and doing the half, we just want to take out anything that may compromise maintaining my muscle mass from now until the show! Let's just say, we've been ubber careFUl throughout this whole process by keeping a close eye on my measurements and weight! Now, we can take out that worry and continue on! Don't worry, I'll get back to running by Halloween! lol)

In terms of my workouts...

They've been great!

SuperFit trained me on my Birthday!
I had a great Birthday Back Workout!

My legs are a wee bit sore from the race, but not enough to complain about them! (I mean, I did do a spin class after running 21K  (not the same day lol) so, they can't be that bad!)

That being said...

I'll give props to Swiss Natural's Microlactin for helping in my post-run recovery! (I've been taking Microlactin once a day since trying it out and I've been loving the my results!)

I'll also give credit to my new pillow (thanks SuperFit!) and the rest day I took in getting myself re-energized! (I'm not the Energizer Bunny, so I can't keep going and going and going lol I need to step back and rest in order to give my body the break it needs!)

Beats my $3 pillow lol

In terms of my pre-comp diet...

Both SuperFit and I have been really happy with how my body is reacting to it! (It took a little while for things to shift into gear **as we had expected**, but, we got there! lol WoO HOo!)

Plus...

I feel good too!

And not because I decided to wear heels one day! ;)

Although I won't deny, just like anybody else...

I do have my days! (We're all human! I just have to remember to breathe, take a deep breath and take everything one day, one hour, one minute and one second at a time!)

If there's one thing (well many things) I'm reminded of during this competition prep it's this...

Patience.

Patience with myself and my body.

Honestly, I don't think I would have appreciated my progress as much if...

It hadn't taken me the time to get me to where I am today.

I've really been able to reflect on a lot of things during this preparation to the stage!
Every moment and every day is an opportunity to learn and grow both inside and out.

Moving into the last 3 weeks....

I'm excited to see what the last few weeks will bring!

I know I'll definitely need to start getting my competition stuff together, like...

1. Getting my hair did;
2. Getting my nails done (Thanks Oli for the gift certificate!);
3. ReFUeling on some makeup and tanning product;
4. Packing up my competition suitcase (we all bring a little suitcase with everything we need for that day); and (not limited to)
5. Getting a massage (I'm in need of another!) to loosen up body (and my brain lol).

But most importantly...

Going in for another bikini fitting at Day Dreams Fitness Wear!

I can't wait to see what Joan has in store for me!

Yeee!!! (So FUreakin' exciting!!!)

With all of that said and done...

Have a fabulous weekend ya'll!
