Yes...you can go on vacation during a bikini prep!
When I decided to do another comp that would take place at the beginning of December I was a little hesitant. Not because of the holidays (Halloween candy, Thanksgiving turkey) but because I was going on a vacation at the end of October. A cruise to be exact. And what do you do on a cruise?? Well, since I had never been on one before I had to go off of what I had heard and that was basically eat, eat, eat and drink, drink, drink! Not exactly what you would call a bikini prepping dream. LOL. But since it was already booked way ahead of time I decided lets take the time (2 weeks before the cruise to be exact) to do a mini-prep if you will. Try some new things out and see how my body responds. For the 2 weeks leading up to my cruise I dieted down big time and increased the cardio. I would love to say that my body responded GREATLY and DAMN I looked HOTTTT! LOL...but well my body likes to play games with me and let things creep up when they are not suppose to. All in all, I did lose about 5 pounds and for a "vacation bikini body" I was happy.
But back to the actual eating/prepping on the cruise. I am very happy to say I didn't gain 1 pound! I ate basically what I wanted, had a couple drinks everyday but I also made sure I trained. I believe we trained everyday except one. This is huge for me because being a former fat girl and a person who can have a love affair with a buffet, I kept it in check.
Here are pics from when I got back...
Still have some work to do, but everything seems to be coming together for this comp. My iPhone sucks, but I promise..I have abs showing. ;)
Anyways, 5 weeks out and I am ready for this!
