 Shocked Now those are some serious progress pix, girl - no wonder you have been feeling so horrible,, especially in the last week - you were going through a serious "drop!"  Wow, look at your vascularity!?  Do you remember being this vascular at three weeks out?Huh  Quads are looking shredded, back shredded, and glutes are amazing (I would LOVE for mine to look like that!).  I agree w/ flexingtonsteele about those tris - geezus...  Lori, this is so exciting - I can't wait to see you on stage.  What color suit are you wearing?  Did you have Maggie make your suit?

Thanks you guys, I really appreciate it!   Kiss

I FINALLY got some pics taken that show that I do have a little leg separation lol.  My lower body is tighter and more defined than it was at three weeks out last year for sure, so I am on track, and now it's time to just focus on making the final cuts and fine-tuning things over the next three weeks.

Michele...thanks!  Cheesy
Yes, Maggie is making my suits for me, as she did last year.  I don't want to reveal everything, but I haven't fully decided yet on color for this year. I am having her make me two suits, both in shiny satin...one black and one bright color (not pink lol).  I am not sure yet which one I will feel like wearing.  And she is stoning my bright blue suit from prejudging last year, which I will wear in the finals. 
I haven't put together any routine music yet, so I will get that together this weekend, and I have A LOT of posing practice and routine practice ahead of me in the next few weeks. 

I'm gonna keep the double cardios up, triples when I can, keep the diet VERY tight (I get a piece of sirloin steak this weekend!! Grin), and train very hard for at least another 2 weeks.  I still have a few pounds to lose to make the lightweights. 

Oh, and I am definitely more vascular this year than I was last year.  I think that you get more vascular over time, with age and training, and so every time you diet down for contest prep, you end up a little more vascular than the time before. 
I have crazy veins in my pecs and back, and all around my biceps right now.  I have a double bicep vein in the left arm.  Not sure if you can see it, but that little bump on my stomach is actually a weird vein that sticks out funny when I am lean.  I can even see veins in my calves, and I have never had any lower body vascularity before.  Cool

ohhh - lower body veins are awesome...  That is so cool that you have them in your calves!  Wow!  I love veins! 

As for your posing, I think your posing is right on but you can never practice enough, right? 

Keep it up girl, 3 weeks to go!!

Imaginary date with Rip :

I am trembling in my boots, I roll up to her place in my car, get out and have my 12 roses in one and and the other very sweaty in my pocket.  As I walk up to the door I can't help but tremble, I ring the doorbell.  She answers, oh ... my ... gosh GORGEOUS  Shocked  I can barely say a word, so I hand her my roses and we walk out the door to the car.

I open up the door for her and closes it very smoothly to not make her jump.  I wipe off the sweat on my forehead and make my way to the drivers side.  As we set off to the nicest restaurant I can find, we have some small talk about her day and how she is feeling.  We arrive at the restaurant, we have a space reserved outdoors for our date.  We sit down and the waiter comes over, I say get my the best bottle of wine you have waiter. 

As we have a great dinner and even better conversation I cannot get over how beautiful she is.  We finish up and head on out after a great dinner.  As fitting, we goto the nicest jewelry store next.  I reserve the whole store just for us.  We go in and are greated by the front door man very nicely.  I say pick anything out you want.  She picks out a beautiful tennis bracelet and she puts it on.  As we walk out I can only think of kissing her at the end of the night  Huh

As I drive her back I am sweating again in my palms, what am I going to do, kiss her or will she turn her cheek.  We arrive, oh my gosh, the moment is here.  As I walk her to the door I decide I am going to go in for the kiss!  She says good night and I face towards her with holding both her hands and give her a peck on her lips, the rest is for further dates and romantic moments we have to come.  I can't wait to call her the next day, I am like a kid in a candy store, so excited!

 Grin


I've been a little under the weather this weekend.  I managed to get my training and cardios in both days, and Carla let me have steak for dinner twice.   Grin
But I had to call the doctor today and get on some antibiotics, but hopefully things will improve in a couple of days.  I have to take the meds for seven days.  Thankfully, it's not the week of the show.

AWWWWW  thank you so much Dweetirs!!   Kiss

Well I have a mean little urinary tract infection...OUCH, what pain!!!  I got some antibiotics yesterday, and they are helping for sure...but I haven't slept well in two days now, and I am feeling a bit run down and tired because of it.  Thankfully I am no longer running to the bathroom every 10 minutes...and I mean RUNNING.  It was awful!  So now I just need to clear it up (hopefully another day or two) and get the antibiotics done (the rest of this week), and then thankfully I will still have plenty of time to get myself put back together for the competition!

I am still recovering from the UTI, and I am soooo tired because I havent slept well in three nights.  But I AM getting better. 

I managed to get my double cardios in all weekend (in between bathroom breaks Roll Eyes).  Yesterday I did 56 mins AM elliptical, then I did a somewhat abbreviated leg workout last night, followed by 38 mins of stair climbing.  I am trying not to kill my legs so that I can keep doing cardio etc., so here's what I did:

HAMMER STRENGTH LEG PRESS (SLED)
sled alone x 25
1 plate/side x 20
2 plates/side x 15
3 plates/side x 12/3 sets
2 plates/side x 15
1 plate/side x 20

LEG EXTENSIONS
5 sets x 10-12 slow and light, with a squeeze and hold at the top

Then I also did about 5 sets of weighted calf raises/calf extensions.

I did arms on Sunday, and my triceps are fried.  I was so tired this morning that I only did a half-ass 36 minutes on the bike, not very hard either, so I will probably skip weight training tonight and bang out some more cardio. 

I weighed 118.0 this morning, so I am actually starting to get to the point where I don't want to lose TOO much more weight before the week of the show.  Maybe like a pound or two.  I have NEVER arrived where I need to be early before...it's kind of weird to almost be ready to rock and roll.   Undecided

OH, no ephedra, no fat burners at all right now.  I never take ephedra cuz I can't handle it, but I got off the thyrotabs I had started because of the UTI.  I'll probably add them back in once I get through the antibiotics.
