Squats, and a few diet changes

Squats went well this week. We are still working on technical changes, but both the weight and the technique is getting easier!

I am working hard to keep my chin tucked during the entire squat, and keeping my eyes down. This keeps my spine in a much more neutral position. I find this technique works really well with my heel elevated shoes.

Since December, my diet has been all over the board. I had far too many starchy carbs, sugary foods, and dairy.
Since the weigh in for my competition in April will be 2 hours before the event, and I really hate water loading and other quick weight loss techniques, I'm trying to bring my weight down the old fashioned way.

What I've done so far is cut dairy, reduced my carb intake, and dropped sugar except for post workout. I'm also drinking one litre of hot water with an ounce of lemon juice first thing in the morning.

I've already dropped about 4 pounds in the past 2 weeks from making these changes, and my bloat is going down quite a bit. At this point my weight is pretty safe for weigh ins, but I still want to eat foods that make me feel better, less bloated, and most of all, stronger!
