I know it’s been a long time since I last checked in with y’all, but a lot has happened. Last week i submitted all of my work and school is officially over with until January 19th. I finally made it back to the gym for a killer leg work out last Wednesday, and I was still feeling the pain through Saturday. Also, I came down with a nasty case of tonsillitis that I’m still bouncing back from on Friday. I had gone to the doctor on Thursday complaining of throat pain, knowing what it was, but the doctor told me that it was probably a respiratory infection that he could do nothing about.  So, I sucked it up and sure enough Friday I woke up with a 100.1 degree fever and my throat was nearly swollen shut. Of course, I went back to the doctor (a different doctor), shaking and rocking the whole time in pain, and he was convinced I had tonsillitis. I immediately began antibiotics and I have been on the up-and-up since then, thank goodness. Poor John came to visit this weekend and got stuck taking care of me. He was a real trooper though.

Just two more days of work before I go to Dallas for Christmas with my family, and just 5 more days until I begin my strict diet again. I’m super freaking excited, but I know it’ll be a struggle because I’ve been eating sugar again. My Secret Santa at work got me an entire jumbo tub of Nutella… Yup. The struggle is totally real right now. And work is torture because sweets and junk food is everywhere right now. Fingers crossed for a successful restart!

I recently purchased several goodies from Amazon for competition that I’m excited to try out. I bought:

  • Pro Tan Show-Shine Ultra-Light Posing Oil
  • Performance Brands Bikini Bite Suit Fastener
  • Pro Tan Overnight Competition Color
  • Pro Tan Get Buffed Pre-Tan Body Scrub Skin Balancing Exfoliator
  • Performance Brands Hair Away Creme
  • Bridal earrings (also for competition)

I’m definitely going to test these products myself prior to using them for competition in March, and I’ll definitely include a full review of each product when I do! I still have a lot more to purchase, but they will have to wait until after Christmas when I have money (lol).

I wish I could work out tomorrow, but the Rec center will be closed for the next two weeks so I’m not quite sure what I’m going to do about that yet. But I’ll let you know what I do!


Happy lifting!
