12 Weeks Out: The Secret to Great Abs- Better Lighting

Here I the "12 Weeks Out" point. I can't believe it!

Luckily, my coach has not changed my food yet. I do, however, have a lot more work in the gym.
I'm finding that my days seem to be going by a lot faster...probably because my time in the gym has increased so much. I feel like I'm always on the go.
This is a good thing, because I seriously cannot wait to get on that stage...and then get off that stage for a glass of wine!

So, let's talk about my progress photos.
I work hard all week long and I actually get excited to wake up on Sunday morning to take my progress photos.
I usually wake up around 7 and start the coffee. I give A.B. a chance to wake up...which doesn't happen. So usually, I end up bursting into our room yelling, "Ready to take some pics??"
He loves it....probably.

So, in an effort to try to give me more consistent photos, A.B. pinned up some fabric on the wall of our guest bedroom and set up a tripod. I was very excited about this...until I saw this week's photos:

Don't get me wrong. I don't hate my photos.
It's just that I was SURE that I had more progress this week. I looked at these photos and I felt like I had accomplished nothing over the past 3 weeks.
So yeah, I was frustrated. I didn't even want to post them.

Then a funny thing happened. 

On Monday morning, I woke up for work, took my shower and when I looked in the mirror, I noticed something different.

Umm.... ABS???? Where did these come from???

I felt so much better! It's these little moments that make all of this worth it. It's the best reward and I can't wait to see what's going to happen next!

All in all, not a bad week. I learned a couple of things:

1. I need better lighting in my guest bedroom.

2. My body changes on a daily basis. I need to not get hung up on one photo.

So, that's it for now. I'm currently suffering from a bad cold and it's keeping me from my training. Not good. So, I'm going to pop some Nyquil and call it a night!
