A BODYBUILDER'S DIARY: 8 WEEKS OUT
BY KRISTYN LIA
And all of a sudden I am halfway through my prep! How did that even happen? I am certainly in a stage of two minds at the moment. My life seems to hold no grey.
I am either hyper or incredibly tired. I am either blown away by my conditioning, or I feel like I am weeks and weeks behind. I want to do too much or nothing at all. It's a 'funny' time and my days are certainly interesting as diet brain starts taking full swing.
I am increasingly social and am trying to schedule in more and more, then realising that I have less and less time to play with. I know I need to stop taking on so much and back pedal, however I am finding this difficult as my mind tends to get excited and easily distracted when I am on the leaner side.
I have not lost any strength in the gym and am pulling out PB's at this stage in prep. Honestly, some of the time I do not even know how as I am starting to do some really stupid diet brain things.
I am a logical intelligent person so I cannot fathom how this girl struggling with basic life tasks is kicking ass in the gym and in the office. But that’s prep for you baby, and I’m mentally preparing myself for the challenges ahead as I am certain I will be kicking it up to a whole new level of prep in the weeks to follow.
I am competing at ARNOLD 2018 after all.. and it will be the toughest competition of my life.
