I give so much thanks to all of the friends and like minded friends I have made through this blog. Some have sincerely become people I consider friends. Even if we have never met face to face. I am just two days out from my 3 year anniversary in the gym. That post I have written and re-written multiple times Who knows what form it will take, however there are alot of things I have learned over the last three years. Most of which is, you don’t know everything ever… just keep trying.
So, this is just a blabber post about life in general, because well… that’s how the blog started. One post about why I wanted to blog that basically said, put it out there and maybe my mom or then bf would read my drivvel.
So, this week’s tip. Food Prep.
Ya, sucks. But honestly for me, if I don’t do it I am far more apt to fail. I generally prep my food in the morning for the day, alongside making breakfast and a whack load of sandwiches and things I cannot eat for the boys who are bottomless pits (all 3) and can eat whatever they want with no consequence. I booked a photo-shoot for 2 weeks from now with Dana Brushette which I have wanted to do for close to a year. She does boudoir and pin up shoots. This one is at a retro style house and I can’t wait. And while I am nowhere near competition shape, I need a goal and a motivation right now, cause I am 19 weeks from my next competition and I’m kinda in a rut. No goal, great program, not so sure about my diet (following coaches plan please don’t tell him) So cue goal, two weeks out and I spent most of the day cleaning, laundry and cooking for the week. But not just for me, for the kids too. (sorry coach, I’m on my plan for the next two weeks)
So, my food for at least the next few weeks. Egg whites, green beans and spinach twice a day, extra lean ground turkey with green beans, onions, asparagus and a lil salsa and Italian seasoning twice a day, whey protein, peanut butter and tuna steaks. Two weeks to rip it into shape.
I also made 8 cheese bagels with cream cheese, 8 sandwiches with different meat, condiments and ingredients, packaged muffins (the big costco ones in half per bag), cookies, carrots, separated yogurt containers and loaded up on bananas and apples for the boys. Should make lunch making easy in the mornings, I hope. Cause stead rate is going out the window for full blown fat burning HIIT.
Two weeks to stunning 50’s pin up. GO
