Day 11 - August 4, 2005.

Yesterday was my first “off” day, didn’t do any cardio and no weights. Although it was very much needed, I still felt guilty about it this morning. Funny how that happens? You do your best, but yet, you always find a reason to beat yourself up and say “I could do better!”. I know that there will be more highly developed elite competitors on stage with me, and although I will admire their hard work and persistence, I will secretly be filling my head with negative thoughts. If I’m at my best physical shape (for that time being), my self confidence will surely be at its best as well. No matter what, I’m getting on that stage!!

Also, just as quick as my first Body-for-Life 12-weeks went by, this will surely go as fast! Heck, they are already selling Halloween Costumes in various retail stores in my area!!!! HA!

Here's one of my favorite Monica Brant's pictures (www.monicabrant.com):

Hey Carole! I love reading your blog and keeping up with what you are up to. Russ and I took pix today for C2 and I am taking the weekend a little easy. Sunday, I will be starting my official training/prepping for my competition. I get my pix back tonight and will post them on tracker later.

Way to go with following your plan!
