What Do I Do Now?


[facebooksimplelike]

So you just finished a competition and now you don’t know what to do with yourself. You feel completely lost with your diet and training. Depending on your goals and what you did or didn’t do, post competition can be looked at in many different ways.

Most people get struck by post contest blues and cannot control their diet when show time is over. The discipline goes out the door and you basically are not able to say no to all the goodies you have been deprived of for long. When competitors go through this post-competition, They also noticed how fast the pounds come back even after only a few days of indulging. The head games start playing with us. We look in the mirror and wish we could look like the day of the show, and we start pinching at our stomachs and our butts. We try to go back on our diets, but that does not last long. Either the gym becomes an obsession or we cannot even drive by without wanting to cry at the thought of training.

What if you didn’t gain body fat? What if you just regained the normal few pounds? It’s not wise to stay lower with your calories just for the sake of staying at your pre-competition weight. Quite the opposite. You cannot think you are doing better because you are having less calories than your body actually can use. If your goal is to improve your physique and put on more muscle, you need to feed your body the adequate calories it needs in order to do so.

For those who don’t maintain a lean physique without cardio, then make sure you keep it up without over doing it, 4-5 times a week is great. But, if you didn’t need more than a few sessions per week to stay lean, then why not cut it down and do only 2-3 intense, short sessions? That way you can also have more energy for your weight training sessions.

If you have months to your next competition and you like how you look, maybe this is the time you need to experiment with other foods. Either you can add a bit more calories or choose some of your favorite foods and include them in your diet. What I personally like to do is a refeed day to fill up glycogen for better training and to prevent lethargy. This also helps our metabolism from hitting a “plateau”. Basically I eat more food and extra clean carbohydrates(always keep it clean!)

If you are just a few weeks between shows, make sure you reintroduce post workout carbs so  you don’t catabolize muscle. Pay attention to how you look so you can stop if your body starts to look smooth. Sometimes we end up looking even better a few weeks after our first show just by little diet changes.

Some people when they are really lean and have eaten too little and trained too much for a long time, the body can start to look soft. The natural response is to train more and diet harder. Most likely what needs to be done is……take a day off and eat more! It’s hard to wrap our heads around this concept when we have established a routine of 2 a day workouts and low calories.

Few things I like to do:

1. Eat a different breakfast
2. Have some peanut butter(or almond butter, or just nuts)
3. Have some fruit
4. Eat a fattier protein like salmon or bison
5. Eat different veggies like carrots or squash

Not only will you feel satisfied, you will most likely feel happier and more energized. Keep in mind sometimes the body may get a little bloated from food we are not used to, but I believe that this is probably a good thing for our metabolism.

Now it’s time to try to relax about the whole “what do I do now!” What you should do now is enjoy your food and training! Work hard and never stop reaching for your fitness goals, and come in more muscular and ready to kick butt at your next show!

Roxanne Patricia – Bikini Athlete


Roxanne competed for the first time May 19th, and came in 2nd in her division! She had an amazing fitness journey losing a lot of weight along the way.
Please read more about Roxanne.
Can you please share with the readers your background and interests?
I was born and raised in Prince George and still live there. I went to UNBC where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, and a Bachelor of Education and I am now a teacher. I have played sports my entire life, and played varsity soccer while going to UNBC. I love to do anything that is active and challenges me, and in my spare time (when I have it) I love to read a good novel.
Who has inspired you the most to become a bikini competitor?
The person that inspired me first to become a fitness competitor is Jenna Servatius and Carol Lama. I had just finished University and was no longer playing varsity soccer and gained almost 30 pounds. I was looking for some inspiration and some guidance on how to lose the weight. My friend Jenna lost over 40 pounds doing a fitness competition and I figured hey I can do that too!!! As I started this journey I was fortunate to have two of the best trainers (Erin Moubray and Angelique Kronebusch) to inspire, and push me to places, I did not even think I could go to. My fiancé and friends have kept me motivated to keep going, and I could not have been so successful without all of these people.
What shows have you competed in, and what were your placements?
The BCABBA Western Canadians was the first competition that I have ever been in. I finished 2nd in bikini division D.
What will be your next competition and competing class?
My next show will be Provincials June 30th, 2012. I will be competing in the bikini division. I will be training hard for the next month, and hopefully with a little luck I can do as well as I did at the Western Canadians.
Where can fans find out more about you?

New to the competition scene, Cynthia is a very ambitious young lady with great goals and an awesome future ahead of her.

Please read more about Cynthia.

 

Please share with our readers your background and interests.

I currently live in Crystal lake, IL. I have 4 brothers and sisters and 2 of the best parents anyone could ask for. I recently graduated from North Boone High School and am now attending McHenry County College. I hope to continue on to the University of Chicago where I would like to major in business marketing, while continuing on competing of course!

I also work at Patty Tax Service & Information which is our family owned business. I enjoy relaxing movie nights with my friends at my house or shopping around the wonderful city of Chicago. Ever since I was a child, I always had a love for sports. I admired athletes who would work their heart out to be the best. I played basketball for about 8 years. The game taught me to set high goals for myself, never say I can’t, and never give up. Nothing is impossible, you just have to get up and go get it, and nothing will be handed to you.

May 2011 is when I was introduced to bikini competitions. My coach Nicole D’ Angelo Bryant spotted me in the middle of my high school gym class and recruited me on to her team B-Xtreme.

Who has inspired you the most to become a bikini athlete?

The person who has inspired me the most is my Coach Nicole D’ Angelo Bryant. She introduced me to this amazing sport. I had no idea what I was getting myself in to but excited to take on a new challenge in life, I accepted. She helped me grow as a person and as an athlete. She brought out the better and more confident person in me. She has guided me through as a coach and a friend, and no matter what, she has always believed in me. I can’t thank her enough for giving me this opportunity. B-Xtreme since day one has treated me like family and I know that where ever this journey takes me, they will always be behind me supporting me.

What competitions have you participated in and what placements did you achieve?

June 10, 2011 NABBA Illinois Cup, 2nd Place bikini
Arnold Sports Festival 2012

What is your next show and class?

I have two upcoming shows, June 2nd 2011, UFE Fury Chicago and July 7th in Saint Louis NANBF-IFPA PQ. I will be competing in the bikini class.
