7 weeks out…

Hello!

I’m now seven weeks out from my first bikini competition which will be the UKBFF Cumbrian classic. My shoes arrived this week and my bikini is being ordered from muscle dazzle bikinis who do THE most beautiful bikinis I have honestly ever seen.

The weather has been erratic at best here in Shetland this week but it’s at least been warm and sunny enough for some outdoors fasted cardio with the bulldog. Professor Hutton is the best training partner!

My weight is constantly down by around half a kilo at the moment so Iv upped my cardio adding  two fasted cardio sessions to my current 15 minutes minimum every training day and it’s working out well for me. I have also started intermittent fasting, so I only eat between 11am and 7pm which I have found is really encouraging me to drink more water during my fasted times and is keeping  abdominal bloating at bay. Intermittent fasting is hotly debated in bodybuilding but Iv used it on and off for years and for me it helps me adhere to my macros and lean out quicker without cutting more food out.

This week Iv felt quite tired due to a strenuous work week along side my training and diet. I’m absolutely dying for pizza and marshmallows, so I’ve been working on some yummy recipes so I can eat what I want but stay in my macros 💪🏻 So keep your eyes peeled!

keep strong

8 weeks out…

This is it. I’m eight weeks out from my first bikini competition, I live on a rock in the middle of the North Sea with no access to coaches or decent gyms. I’m alone, but I’m strong…

I started prepping for bikini at the start of the new year- a cliche I know. I live in Shetland, Britains most northerly islands, and until a week ago my gym didn’t even have free weights above 40kg dumbells. Even so I am seven lbs out from my intended stage weight and, through sheer volume and effort, managed to build a good base of muscle.

This blog is going to be my story, my meals, my prep and my exercise. It’s going to be honest and it’s going to be ugly!!

At 8 weeks out my macros are creeping down. Currently I’m hitting 155g protein/ 110g carbs and / 35g fat. I’m hitting the gym five times a week with two active rest days. I do 15 mins cardio 5x a week plus at least an hour of dog walking a day- I have a 42kg monster dog that needs a good run. I weigh in at 136lbs at 5ft8 and falling.

I can do this.
