So it's official. I've decided to delay my Nationals appearance. Mainly in part due to my head just not being in the right place. Doing something so important to me and not really being in the right "place" at the same time just does not coincide. I'm not giving up, don't you worry! Ha! FAR from that. I'm just taking some time to get myself together emotionally and then I will be back with a vengeance. With that said I am now going to do the North American Nationals in Pittsburgh August 30th and 31st of 2013.
I'm actually feeling better about this, when at first I was very upset with myself because I truly wanted to be apart of Jr Nationals, and go to Chicago, however, now I'm looking at it as the perfect opportunity to truly build my body more and come in with an even tighter package than I could've to Jr Nationals. I truly am a believer that everything happens for a reason, I'm not always sure of the reason, but one day I will find out.
With the show being at the end of August I have approximately 13 weeks to go. That is truly amazing. I started off training for my first show right around that time frame and came so far - can you imagine 13 more weeks of heavy training and dieting? I'm pumped to see what I can bring to the table. I want to blow these judges away. :)
My goals for this 13 week time frame? To work on building my glutes further and to tighten my hamstrings further, number 1. Number two is to tighten up my abs, as last go round I didn't really put too much emphasis on my abs because I was unsure if the judges were looking for more of a "soft" look vs a "hard" look. I don't plan to go overboard, because too much muscle it not what the judges want, but I will definitely be adding some more for sure, which I'm excited about. Of course then on top of those two items I plan to continue building my upper body and keeping it trimmed and toned. There's nothing more satisfying then looking down at your arms in a tank top and being proud of what you've done and your transformation. Truly!
So with that said, LOOK OUT North American Nationals - Nicole is coming :) HA! No, but really, I'm excited! <3 Nicole
