4 weeks until the Mets - My progress so far...

Have you ever heard the phrase "Third time's a charm?" Well, I hope this year...my third year competing...is going to be the year.

I've been dieting and training since the week of Christmas...Yes, THAT LONG. This is the first year I had a plan that started 16 weeks out...the last 2 years I kinda just "wing-ed it." Ehhh, it was ok for that time...but winging it isn't going to get me to where I want to be...so I now have a team of people helping me prepare for the season.

If you wanna run with the big dogs...you gotta train like the big dogs...and seek out the best of the best to help you...and that's exactly what I did. It doesn't make this process any easier...in terms of eating and working out...but it does help to have a plan made exactly for me and a support team comprised of people who have all been there...and know what it takes.

So, I was doing good...but not good enough...the mental part got to me...and I fell behind...ate more than I was supposed to...missed parts of the workouts...which I was told happens to just about everyone in this sport at one time or another...and after the last set of pictures I had to send to my trainer, I begged for help. I was ashamed of my set backs...but there was no one to blame but myself. I needed to get up, dust myself off, accept what happened, then forget about it and move on. That brings me to today.

I'm not going to dwell or recap the last 12 weeks...I'm looking forward and charging ahead. My goal? To make sure everyone in the Industry KNOWS MY NAME. Sure, a ProCard would be great...and I will work my ass off to get there...but for now...just know...I'm an up-and-comer, and I'm going to BRING IT. Remember it: JENN NASH.

My Musical inspiration today: 4 Minutes by Justin Timberlake & Madonna.
When you have an hour of cardio to do and you see 56 minutes on the time counter...put this song on...it helps you get to the end!

Accountability - That's what this blog is going to be. I hope you enjoy reading about my journey...as much as I enjoy going through it!

Until the next time....
