Wow, the countdown is on!

Then I wanted to make sure I really depleted my glycogen…

It is still hard though!

Hey Everyone,

Quick body shot I took the other night. Only 1 week away from photoshoot.

The next week is going to be grueling and a test of will. I will be keeping a journal for each day.

This will basically be a practice run up to the April 17th competition :) Stay tuned!
