In my Kitchen 2

Eating during prep was easy at first now its getting difficult, Only because I’m tired of missing potato’s, bread and the occasional donut. I have to make my meals as exciting as possible so here’s what I’ve been eating.

IMG_3550This was one of my favorites, I made turkey meat balls from 99/1 Jennio ground turkey. Flavored them with Chipotle spice and that’s it. I lay it all on a bed of shredded lettuce as a filler. add some color with yellow peppers and mini tomato’s and it was filling.

9 days out!

Well that was quick! NO, it took forever to get here! I’m officially exhausted, need donuts ASAP or I could die! Well, at least that’s what it feels like. Carb depleting all week then Saturday I get a tiny reefed and then its PEAK WEEK!

I’ve been practicing my posing like crazy, because I’m really nervous about standing on stage in front of a huge crowd of people. I feel like I might freeze and forget my steps unless I memorize them and it just becomes second nature. My husband said that the lights are so bright when your up there that you can’t see the 200 eyeballs staring at you, maybe just the judges eyeballs but that’s only 6-7 people. At least I know there will be 10 other girls standing next to me, which is a good thing, I think.Read More »

2 weeks out!!

I can not believe in less than 14 days I’ll be standing on stage for the first time competing in a bikini show. I have worked so hard for the past 3months and I have made slow progress,  but I’ve done it. I have fought for what I wanted, put in the work, and all the sweat and tears will be worth it. I may not be the leanest girl on stage, or the most muscular, but in reality I feel that I’ve beat the girl a used to be.Read More »

Unbelievable how fast time has gone! It feels like just yesterday I was 12 weeks out from my first bikini competition. I’m nervous, excited, ready, not ready and anxious. But I keep reminding myself why I’m doing this. I’m doing it for me, to prove to myself that I can’t, and won’t let my autoimmune disease beat me, or dictate my life.Read More »

Week 6 of prep has been rough and for the first time I started craving things I normally wouldn’t eat like CHEESEBURGERS! anyone who knows me knows I hate cheese burgers, I basically take them apart and would eat the bun separate from the meat, but for some reason a cheese burger with French fries sounds freaking delicious! ever since I went GF I haven’t had one and the low carb days must be getting to my brain! so yesterday I decided I was going to have a pancake and I was going to find a way to make a NO CARB one taste delicious. SUCCESSS thanks to Quest nutrition delicious protein powders. Read More »
