FreeMotion Figure- Natalie’s Journey to the Stage (Seven weeks until GAME TIME!)

Over the last few weeks I have been traveling like a crazy lady for work. Travels to Salt Lake, Boston and Germany definitely required more self-discipline and preparation, but it was not impossible to stay on my diet and exercise routine. Here are a few things I did to stay on track…

I normally only drink one protein shake a day, but with travel it was a quick, easy way to get in my required protein. It saved me on the plane rides!

EGGS! These two cartons represent my breakfast for 6 days and it only cost $4! Who said eating healthy has to be expensive? It was easy to have eggs each morning no matter where I was. My current breakfast consists of 1 whole egg and 5 egg whites! I can add the veggies I love.

Yes, I was the crazy lady at the restaurants with the food scale and the measuring cup. Crazy or dedicated…that’s up for debate, but ultimately I am committed to results and ready to do what is required!!

Here is a video I recorded while in Germany after a LONG workday at the FIBO trade show!

Travel offered me MANY, MANY reasons not to eat on plan or complete all my workouts, but instead I chose to frequent the little hotel gym every morning and every night. WHY, because I want results!

Next week I have an appointment to try on competition suits. I am planning to narrow it down to a couple and then have you all choose the one I wear for the show. Look for that post this week!

Honestly, every week is getting progressively more and more difficult. This is by far one of the hardest things I have ever done in my life both physically and mentally. I have gained a whole new level of respect for the capabilities of my body and for my discipline. Currently I am lifting 5 days a week, fasted cardio 6 days a week for 50 minutes AND steady state cardio at 150 beats per minute for 50 minutes 6 days a week. Yes that means most days I am washing 3 sets of sweaty gym clothes!

Going STRONG and the countdown is ON!!!
