"befores", on post comp nutrition

I have finally managed to work out how to get Shannon's before pic up so you can see where we started from in April 2007. There is quite a difference there, don't you think?
Shannon and I have been working on post comp nutrition and have been focusing on gradually gaining weight in a healthy way. In our photo shoot, she is a kilo heavier than she was at the comp 10 days prior. Being around to support Shannon post competition is extremely important to me as many athletes, myself included often experience "post competition let down" as the goal you have worked so hard to move towards has been achieved and moved past. Celebrating the achievement, working through the natural lull that occurs afterwards and resetting the focus is another journey in itself!
Despite being saddled with really horrible TOM - I don't know why some months are worse than others but the old Nurofen are being treated like Smarties here - I did Lene's RPM class and then taught "Core". Brutal is the only word I can use to describe Lene's class - Track 6 was 3 x 90second repeats at close to 100% - I was cussing at him under my breath today.
Looking forward to hopefully seeing Anne and training lower body tomorrow morning.

Fantastic results. I couldn't agree with you more re the after comp low. It just seems that once you have reached that goal it is really difficult to continue. That is definitely the time you really need some extra help or you can get a bit lost again.

Thank you Liz and Shannon for sharing. I can really see how much work has gone into Shannon's prep.
I'm actually blown away :-)
Shannon must be stoked to have transformed herself like she did.
Thank you.
