Sweating Bullets

Phew! I am a schwetty schwetty beast. No, not because I just finished a bomb-ass workout or a killer cardio session, but because I'm sitting at my desk, at work, and methinks my fever just broke. Hallefrickinlujah! I have felt like warmed-over ass for a couple days now. (I paint a pretty picture, huh? Gotta love some warmed-over ass.) I have been sick more often than not during this prep. My body has been rebelling since the 5th week. At 8 weeks out, I was rockin', ready to roll. At 4 weeks out I was in the exact same place at 8 weeks out. Now at 3 weeks and 2 days out I am still unsure as to whether or not it's even possible. I set out to do this competition with certain physical goals and ideals, not to be a measly 4 pounds lighter. I carry purses that weigh more than that. Okay, I lie, I rarely carry purses. LOL!

Anyways, that's me venting. I figured it was time for an update, and since nothing uberly productive is occurring, I thought I'd share my current boo-hoo, woe-is-me moment with you. :-)

And just so you know, I am not a Negative Nancy. I am actually posting this with a smile on my face (not a psycho Joker kinda smile :p ). I'll keep on truckin!

Ok yeah, I feel you! I am only a measly 6lbs less than I was when I started nearly 6 weeks ago! WTF? This is not what I picured in my head, but I am going to tell you what I tell myself, they don't care about your weight or your BF%, it's how you look overall. We must press on! PRESS ON, Warmed over ass! YOU CAN DO IT! :)

Your gym is really called Schwetty's?! That is HILARIOUS! Is this a last name?
