What’s Next: On the List

Posted: November 19, 2012 in Uncategorized

I’d be lying if I said no one has asked me what’s next.

I’d also be lying if I didn’t admit I’ve asked myself that same question… Several times over.

It’s only been one week since provincials and I guess you could say I’m in that limbo stage.

On one hand I know I WANT to do Atlantics again in April. It’s the 50th anniversary, moved to the casino and prob going to be a huge (fun) show.

On the other hand I know I need to grow. I know I need to come in leaner. In short, I’ve got a lot of work to do.

Yes… Even more work.

I maintained silence with the coach, mostly to give him a break from my crazy… But also because I had no idea what to say.

Saturday my new German volume workouts were sent to me and he asked the million dollar question… And I gave the long answer of the above.

As much as I know that taking the year to gain size is probably the “best idea”, I don’t feel comfortable mentally gaining 30lbs to put on big size all in one go. Maybe if I took competing more seriously I’d do this, but um… I don’t.

While I take my training and lifestyle seriously…. I don’t take myself seriously. I do this for fun and I know in my heart if I’m backstage in jeans and a hoodie putting tan on the other girls instead of glueing a suit to my own butt I’m going to end up in tears.

… The bad kind of tears.

So there you have it. The (sort of) short version of my decision. I’ve been added to the list of Blueprint athletes for Atlantics.

April 13th in Moncton I’m getting back on stage.

The plan is exactly the same as it was last April, stay lean, kill the workouts, make smart gains and see where the chips fall in April.

The show is the weekend after my… 29th… Birthday. I think closing out my 28th year as the most kick ass becca I can be is one hell of a way to do it.

… And that’s my deep thought over coffee for the day.

  1. smart decision! i know you are a small framed gal and adding muscle size may be hard for you,but 5 months is plenty of time to gain a solid 2-5lbs of muscle and sill stay lean and be ready for the stage…
    even if its only a 3lb gain,you will be surprised at how well that will look!!
    the workout and nutrition part is easy compared to the mental aspect sometimes,but i have a feeling with your attitude and intrinsic motivation,there are no doubts you will bring your best physique yet to the stage!!!
    😀

  2. congrats on signing up for another. I think you are being smart in really seeing where you are and where you want to be. good luck!

  3. I was going to say. She better sign up for Atlantics with it being the 50th anniversary and at a Casino! Good luck! (Not like I’m not going to stalk your blog until then and wish you good luck at least 100 times.)

    Congrats! I really enjoy reading your blog!! Also, I just read about a black Friday sale on figure and bikini suits. This shop, Vizion wear, made my awesome bikini as well as many for Fitness NM, Bikini Universe,etc. I saw it on their fb page but they probably also have a website. I have no affiliation, in fact I don’t think I could be tough enough to compete again, but Ithink someone needs to take advantage if a good bargain!
