Early this week, I blogged about the goals that I hoped to achieve in October and beyond. After I pushed publish on that post, I could not get my long-term goals off my mind. I kept thinking that I had started working towards 3 of those 4 goals – I’m slowly building my running miles, have ordered my personal training materials, and have started doing more Zumba. But I have taken no steps toward competing in a figure competition.
And truthfully, I have no idea how to go about it. So what did I do – nothing other than turn to my trusty friend “Google”. That’s how I found Terry Stokes. Terry offers a 12-week at home program that is designed to get someone ready to compete. I read review after review and was BLOWN away by the results – moreover Terry stated that the workouts could be done at home. But Terry’s program costs $167.00.
Granted that is far cheaper than hiring a personal trainer at my local gym but it was still out of my price range. I decided to take a gamble and e-mailed Terry to see if we could work out a deal. I explained to Terry that I was a wife, mama, and a career woman who was looking to get into competition shape. I told him that I was also a health and fitness blogger (side note: still find that hard to believe). I asked if he would be willing to offer me the program at discount in exchange for me sharing my journey here on the blog.
Then I waited…..
And 4 hours later, Terry e-mailed me to tell me that not only would he discount the program, he would give it to me for free. (FCC: While I am getting the program for free, all thoughts/opinions are my own).
I have spent the rest of my week, reading all of the materials, creating my training schedule, making a training notebook, writing out shopping lists, and figuring out when/how to do my food prep. Since Monday is a holiday for my company, I am going to use the day to prep all my meals for the week, and then complete my first workout Monday night.
There are not enough words to describe how excited I am about this. I have been talking about figure competitions for YEARS….and now I am actually moving towards my goal.
I will be back later this weekend to outline the first week of Terry’s plan for me! But for now, there’s an adorable 3-year-old who wants me to play dress-up with her.
