The bulk has ended, and Jeanice prepares to cut for her first show. Follow Jeanice Cabale during her body transformation during a 365 day period.

Jeanice Cabale week 26.Bulking has been fun! But deep inside my mind I know GAME TIME is just around the corner! I have definitely took notice on how my body has changed in the last 3 months and I am loving the results. I have a few more weeks of putting on size and then the diet starts.

PRE-CONTEST wow... I never thought this time would come so soon. I still remember the day I first contacted Jen and we spoke about what my plans were as far as competing and where I wanted to go in this sport. Six months have passed and I have learned so much. I've learned what exercises are working well for me, what rep ranges, foods, cardio, etc., that do the trick as far as my transformation goes.

The show is less than 4 months away and it is time to get my game face on. The OFFSEASON is almost over. LET'S GO! No time to play around! Like I always say "There is no better feeling then waking up and feeling great in your own skin." The hard work, the dedication, hours of training, days preparing and just the overall lifestyle of being healthy definitely pays off.

At times it can be emotionally and physically draining but I fight through it. I always remember what the goal is and reach for it. I am doing this for myself and no one else. I wake up early because I want to, I choose to eat out of tupperware because it is what I enjoy. This is my life, a true passion of mine.

The support of others always makes it easier of course, but at the end it's truly up to you as the individual to get it done. Last but not least I would like to thank my family, friends my coach and my new sponsor Natural Vitamins, NY, for all their support! One more month and let the games begin!

SIDENOTE: Later that evening I received an an email from Jen stating that everything is moving in the right direction! Measurements did go up but in the right places. :)
