Hey oh! I’m at the gym.. again! I’m smiling at YOU!
I can’t believe it’s been almost 8 weeks since I had my gall bladder surgery! I was a hot mess for a while but I’m healed and feeling awesome. Anyone who even bothers to read my life-casting stuff.. just know I use this as a timeline for my progress.
One of my bodybuilding sisters, turned me on to a brand new gym that is close to my studio. It’s a perfect fit for me. It has the best equipment I’ve ever worked with in over 33 years of training. I’m able to do most everything at Sleek but this is a perfect fit. I am feeling so pumped right now!
Prep: I started in January, prepping for my photo-shoot. I am now 6 weeks from that.
I wrote a brand new plan for myself to see how my body would change. I love it. One thing I want to note is that post surgery, my food has been about keeping my digestive system happy. I can’t digest much fat so I literally eat about 5g fat per meal. Certain foods make my stomach hurt! I have made peace with my food situation. I’m focused on my physique and my health. I am sitting at about 2000 calories a day and I’m very happy with my slow results. I don’t even know what I weigh. My clothes are getting too big. Seriously… I fluffed so hard over the holidays. I know I added some muscle but I am excited to NOT feel fluffy!
My next competition
My next show is UFE Halloween Mayhem, October 29 in Chicago! I am beyond excited. I am so happy in this federation. I really, really like the people. The experience was amazing. I’m going to compete this year as Master’s Glamour (like VS fashion show) and Fitness Model categories. I am not doing bikini. I will be upping my macros a bit post shoot to continue to build for this show. I will come in with a better package this year. I get two costumes and two bikinis! I’m meeting my costume designer this week!
Current situation: This is happening in prep:
Sometimes that bike.. tho! Getting snap chats from my team!
Booty/Hammies are changing with my new workouts:
Legs are my hardest area to bring in. I will be successful this year.
SleekBikiniTeam: OMGOSH I am the luckiest coach. I have the best, best team of women competing and in off season. I have two lovely online ladies very close to their April shows! Our local team is prepping for NANBF and there are 7 girls representing TeamSleekBody in late April. Everyone is looking spot on and feeling pumped. Suits are ordered and we are going to bring it. We have a full roster of amazing athletes heading in to the summer and fall ready to kill it!
It’s now the summer prep season so my studio clients, brides and lifestyle clients are pushing hard. Every day, I get to wake up and train alongside these awesome women.
They bring their best everyday. Progress, not perfection. We are sisters in iron and macros and we are Justin Bieber fans too. lol
Hey Tracy!! I had my gallbladder removed as well!! Before the surgery I would have gallbladder attacks where I felt like I was going to get sick an pass out. Once I had the surgery, I also noticed that fats don’t digest as well for me. I get bloated and my stomach hurts (with too much PB of course haha).. Another inspiring post! You totally GET IT!
Thanks sister!! We have to share stories!! 😘😘
