July 11th Progress Update!

Hi, and thanks for stopping by my blog to check my latest update:)
I started this transformation journey almost 2 full months ago, and so far everything seems to be going as planned... The past 2-3 weeks is when i have seen the most results from my diet and training. I am currently following my own diet which i change whenever i feel its necessary. It's low in carbs overall but i have incorporated a few higher carb days which are cycled in depending on my activity level or how my progress is coming along. I am using bodyfat callipers and tape measures to track my progress.. the scale is really not my friend at this point especially on days where i consume more green vegetables and water.... LOL... the way my clothes fit or how i look in the mirror, vascularity and overall appearance are better indicators than the fluctuating number on the scale!!
Sometimes after i have a meal i feel super tight and lean and i can see soooo much definition, but other times, especially after my first meal of the day which is a shake, i feel like i look bloated... it's really frustrating since i know its all in my head. Getting past the mental aspect of dieting has always been a huge challenge for me. There are so many highs and lows that go along with this. Today i decided to record this quick posing practice clip. Cleary i picked the wrong suit for posing and the lighting is way off but as long as i got to practice that's what counts!

My bodyfat levels have dropped dramatically and my hormones seem to be having a hard time adjusting to the fast changes taking place. I haven't gotten my time of the month in a while, which i know is really common among female figure/fitness/bodybuilding athletes so i'm not too concerned but it's playing tricks with my mind. I keep thinking it's gonna come every time i get cramps or feel bloated but then nothing happens! Grrrrrrrrrrr!
Aside from that things seem to be going good, I have no complaints... I've started doing some extra cardio and changed my workouts again as well as my diet so I hope to see some improvements in the next 2 weeks!
I'll be posting again on here soon so stay tuned :))
