Last month of preparations

I usually prefer staying more off-line during the last month of contest preparation but I’m getting kind emails to keep on blogging. And yes, I will post more photos from my workouts in future.

You already know that bodybuilding requires extreme discipline and inner drive to constantly push yourself beyond the level of comfort. When preparing for contest we have to work the hardest we can every single day, few times per day if necessary to get in our absolute best shape. Still the workout may last an hour or two but the dieting is 24 hours a day so we need to count every single gram of carbs, proteins, and fats we consume. And the fact is that the lack of carbs affects our brain and mood. Not in a very positive way lol

I would love to see more girls posting a photo of their preps, just to make the game more interesting, keep rumors circulating and promote the show. But in this sport it doesn't matter what other competitors are doing; you are just technically competing against the others. Truly you are competing only against yourself. For this reason, there is no point in worrying about what others do. You need to do your best and show up in the absolute best shape you can because that is all you can control.

Time for updates

We are 8 weeks out of Ms. Olympia so it's time to start posting some photos from my workouts.
I'm back home, enjoying the hot summer here and working hard for September.
This year I'm working with George Farah and I'm really happy with my preps...never been better :)
