Here we go again...

"Failure is only the opportunity to begin again, only this time more wisely."~ Henry Ford

And prep begins once again. I found another show. I don't have to wait until August! WOOO HOOO! STOKED! :o)

I love the quote I found to sum up my last prep. Failed is a harsh word, but I did not reach my goal -- FAIL. Am I a failure because of this? Absolutely not. Huge difference. I learned a LOT, and that is what it is all about. Learning, challenging yourself, growing mentally, physically, and emotionally, and... let's face it, you have to get friggin' lean in the process. I did not.

Let's see. I started prep on Saturday, about 4 pounds up from where I ended prep 2 weeks ago. I have a lot of water on me from not eating perfect and because TOM is here, but I am already down 1.4 pounds. *happy dance*

8 weeks out! Let's get this shizz started!

YEAH BABY!!!! What show are you doing? I am excited for you! You were so close, I was bummed for ya when you decided not to go through with the last one, but I know you are gonna make sure you're ready this time! SAWEET!!

And you're right, you failed but you are not a failure. Coming back better is going to taste that much sweeter. I cannot wait.
Oh, and this time, give a girl some full body pics to look at ;)

I am pumped for you!
PS - Only 4 lbs in 2 weeks? that's nothing. GOOD FOR YOU for not going overboard. WOOT
