I let it go a little, more over the last couple weeks - interesting how its not as bad if you don't diet but still hit the gym, but let the gym go, and everything starts to sag -- but work has been getting crazy, helped a friend compete over last weekend at the NPC Excaliber (which entailed eating only the food I had w/ me while we waited 6 hrs for his weight group to go on stage, and THEN hitting some killer diners in LA for lunch & dinner, and no gym for nearly a week). So yea, getting a little soft right now.

    But... Cabo for new years and leaving in 19 days! So you bet your off-season booty I'm doing my cardio & back on my diet right now! Jan 4, thennnn I can eat!

    lol! I hear ya on that one. I gotta be bikini ready come Jan 9-10 so things are being held in check. I am however nowhere near as strict (since comp dieting will start Jan 12 (pushed back a week because of the vball comp) as during pre-contest. I find that since allowing myself enough wiggle room (i.e. NOT feel guilty if i have a cookie or a piece of candy here and there) ive pretty much NO interest in binging or going overboard. Cardio, in any other form except steady state, ive pretty much made a staple of these days, so i think im in better control and in a much better place when compared to last yr. So hell yea i'm gonna enjoy my last few weeks of the off season!

I know it doesn't help how you feel when you look in the mirror or put on a pair of jeans, but when you see what that extra weight will yield once you get on stage next year, it might help ease some of that "fear of the fluff." lol

    I did that a few times when I was dieting. All my dress pants were falling off my hips and nearly exposing my booty... the elastic on my yoga pants kept my pants where they belonged and fit better than anything else, so I wore them on days when I could get away with it.

    Sassy and Girly your avi's are sweet!
    Hey Suz..I started eating every 2 hours but smaller meals and I'm not getting the horrible bloated feeling that I had before. Plus it helps since I'm hypoglycemic. I'm not getting a huge spike anymore. Thanks for helping me out.

    Some how show-time photoshoot pix make you feel so much better about yourself when you're off season

    Oh, I dunno about that. They kinda make me sad since it was just a short while ago and I don't look that way anymore. I can't stand looking in the mirror and the comp photos remind me of what i lost.

    Even Sledge said I look more like a "fit chick" than a bodybuilder now.
